      I apologize if a thread concerning this issue has already been posted, but I wasn't having any luck with the search. Feel free to give me a good backhand if there's already a thread for this somewhere. smiley4.gif

      Anyways, I live at a summer camp. Living at the ass end of nowhere, we don't have the option of wi-fi or whatever for the campus, so we simply have an antenna that boosts the routers signal, providing a connection to most of the campus. Unfortunately, having one set password, or even rotating the password allows people who aren't patrons of the camp to get a connection via word of mouth and they do devilish and naughty things, such as using torrents (the provider has a strict 'no torrents' policy, and they start sapping bandwidth if they detect such torrenting).

      So, is it possible for me to somehow set things up so that I have to personally allow someone to access the connection, and gives me the ability to block a connection to a certain computer if need be?

      We have a 5mb wireless connection.

      Using this Router.

      Again, my apologies if this has been posted somewhere or is just considered to be a stupid question in general.

      Thanks for the help!

    • The Beta...

      9 years ago

      Lein

      Do you really need to ask which one? I'd hope not, but just in case, I'll clarify. I snagged a key for the Halo: Reach beta late last night from Bungie's site, it's a lot of fun to say the least. At this point, I'll just post a few drabbles on various aspects of the game.

      The Assault Rifle: Is perfect. Bungie has really struck a nice balance with this weapon. It never feels too powerful, or too weak, not to mention It's also surprisingly accurate. Still, don't expect to kill anyone without first emptying 3/4 of a mag into them first.

      The Magnum: A nice back-up weapon. The magnum serves its purpose as a back-up weapon well, however, despite being quite a bit more potent than its Halo 3 counter-part, it still doesn't quite function adequately as a primary weapon. Generally being outclassed by the assault rifle at close to medium range, and outclassed by the D.M.R at medium to long range, it's probably best to keep this weapon as a back-up weapon and little else.

      The DMR/Needle Rifle: Similar in function, with a few exceptions. I've found myself leaning towards the DMR for some reason, but in the end the difference's between the two weapons are generally cosmetic. Expect four shot's to drop a shield, and one follow up shot to the head to tie things down.

      Melee: Is a little overpowered. I haven't played Halo 3 in a bit, but the delay between beat downs seems a little short, I kept getting melee'd twice in a row in quick succession with almost no time to respond. I'd like to see a little more of a delay between each beatdown in the future.

      New Game Types: Kinky. Most of the new game type's are pretty fun. Headhunter is a nice chaotic mess, while stockpile is a really nice take on capture the flag. 'Covy' Slayer is interesting. Since everyone is an elite, they take more damage and regenerate health. The health boost make's things a bit different since obviously, it takes longer to kill an enemy. Regardless, firefight's seem a little dragged out with the health bonus. Evade is pretty fun to use though.

      Armor Abilities: Squat. The armor abilities are pretty neat. Sprint is my favorite at the moment, since it can get you out of a pinch really quickly, and throw off would be snipers, etc. Armor lock is really useful when playing team game types, since you can use it to become a distraction while your other teammates mop up the opposition, it doesn't seem overpowered, but I guess we'll see. The jetpack is pretty self explanatory, and I'm not sure how I feel about active camo yet.

      I apologize if this seems rough, and for my lack of proper spelling, punctuation and grammar, it's late and I'm tired, and I'm not bothering to proof read this.

      I will update within the week...probably. It's not like anyone read's this damn thing.

    • Left 4 Dead 2 doesn't suck?!

      I'll be honest, I kind of judged the franchise a bit harshly without ever playing it. However, I've now played both of the games and am enjoying them quite a lot. Surprising.

    • The Chronicles of Riddick

      I can't quite comprehend what anyone see's in this game.

      The first campaign, Escape from Butcher Bay, isn't too bad. It's quite rough around the edges, but its got some solid voice work and features a moody atmosphere and great stealth gameplay. However A decent map would have been nice, and all of the guns feature a considerable amount of delay between the time the weapon is fired and the time the projectile hits, making long range firefights problematic. So all in all, not bad, nothing great, but hey, the game is head and shoulders above most if not all movie franchise games.

      The second campaign, Dark Athena, is a massive piece of shit. Take Butcher bay, take away its gritty atmosphere and focus on stealth and what you have left is Dark Athena, A sloppy, poorly paced, frustrating brawler. A big peeve of mine is the fact that the game takes away pretty much the whole stealth aspect of the first game, and changes it from a stealth game to an action game. This wouldn't be too much of a problem, but the developers didn't do anything new with the game mechanics. The amount of damage you take is the same, the way the weapons work is the same, and with a few exceptions your arsenal remains the same, its basically all taken from the first game, which wasn't meant to be an action title. In short, the mechanics of the game aren't meant for an action title, thus creating a frustrating experience all around.

      If you must play this game, do yourself a favor and only play Butcher bay. :/

      (Pardon my lack of grammar and punctuation, i'm fuming.

      And it's very good. Ben Burnley's vocals sound excellent. However, the band hasn't really taken any steps forward when it comes to content or style, thus leaving us with an album that sounds a little bit too much like Phobia.

    • Swine Flu.

      in Forums > Swine Flu. | Follow this topic

      This seems to be quite the current event, and if for some reason it doesn't belong here, feel free too thoroughly swat me.

      Between March and April 2009, over 1000 cases of Swine flu had been reported in humans in Mexico. Of these suspected 1000 cases, over eighty appeared to have died ( more deaths since then, more than likely). The death-rate sitting at roughly eight percent.

      As of April 25th, 2009, 11 cases have been confirmed in Kansas and the southwestern United States and several suspected cases in the New York city area.

      April 26th, the New Zealand Minister of health reported that 22 students returning from Mexico had flu like symptoms. 13 of the students were tested for Influenza A, which is strongly suggested to be the swine flu strain, and ten tested positive. However it is possible that the returning students are simply just sick with some other strain of flu.

      5 possible cases have been detected in Canada, two being in British Columbia, and three being in Nova Scotia.

      As of this point (April 26th, 2009) the only fatalities caused by this new strain of swine flu have been in Mexico.

      I apologize for my ramblings up above, and if it's a little incoherent, I'm in a bit of a rush. I've just kind of compiled and compressed data about this recent outbreak from what I could find on BBC, Wikipedia, and heard on the CDC's press conference. I'm somewhat of a viral enthusiast.

      What does everyone think about these turn of events?

      Imperials are more suited towards Warrior and Rogue archetypes then mages. For a battle mage character I would recommend,

      1. Dark Elves: Most balanced of the races. Perfect for hybrids.
      2. High Elves: Really really really good mages.
      3. Bretons: Also good mages.

      I... am not fond of the new style D: They look more.. cartoon-ish to me now :/ I think the quality was better before. I mean, i get that the animation company are probably just in it for the money cause lets face it, FMA is a cash cow, but they could have done it better. I don't think they are gonna win anyone over with the new style.

      Other than that I'm still enjoying it. I don't mind that they are trying to squish the first half of the original series into a few episodes, probably because i've seen it before. I haven't read much of the manga (I do know quite a bit about what happens though. I read it online somtimes, but i only have the first 3 volumes) so I'm looking forward to when they get into all that.

      There's quite a line-up. Especially with the newly announced PSP titles. I think Sony will be fine this year, software wise at least. Killzone 2 GOTY, it may get the graphical awards at least. There's just so many good games coming out this year it's too hard to tell. I haven't had the time to finish my overdue reviews for 2 games I'm supposed to do.
