      Nothing happening really, but things of most note over the last few months:

      A French guy in EVE keeps sending me really rude messages, I can't read French but one looks something like " you big ass hole, I gonna tear off your head and shit down your neck" stupid French wannabees I love this game :o)

      I bought 24 cans of beer and when i went to clean up the mess in the morning there were 25 empty cans!!! Now tell beer fairies don't exist

      My eldest daughter Claire took part in her school Christmas concert, it was great fun!

      I'm pretty much skint and this Christmas stuff is not helping :(

      Last year I was 90% sure santa didn't exist, this year I've upgraded to 94%, these odds are not good for santa and his pixies.



      Peace be you in these troubled times ................. and eh..................... I'll pray to the present pixies that you all get lots of gifts .............. you got a 6% chance that that they exist and 1% chance they listen they listen to me.

      Thats the best i can do dudes :))


      Have a great Christmas!!!!!!!!!!!



    • New PC Build

      Sxndy

      I built a new one last Wednesday.


      All I'm gonna say is that it is > than yours.


      Naw, I'm gonna say more, it really, really, really rocks.

      I just can't believe how fast its is and I haven't even started overclocking it.


      *Dreams about his new rig all the time* Call me a pervert if you like, but some things go deeper than flesh and bones. I'm coming out and admiting it ..... I LOVE MY PC


      There, I've said it and I'm not ashamed.

    • New PC build

      10 years ago

      Sxndy

      I got some money coming from a raise, but the Unions are wanting a better deal so it'll be a while before it's sorted.

      This will give me the cash to build a new gaming machine.

      I'm gonna have to go intel quad core as amd just isn't good enough *cries* but I will be using ATI graphic card(s)


      I'm really impressed by the ATI 4850 I got for my current PC and would recommend it to anyone. It runs a little hot, but is mega powerful and really cheap. (The one I got is made by ASUS, I love ASUS)

      Also I want a decent gaming keyboard and mouse (plus mouse mat, you would believe how fast I destroy mouse mats)

      So, the longer the Unions hold out, the longer it will take to get my back cash and the better the PC I can build.

      Besides my family, I don’t think there is anything else I love more than planning and building PCs (forgot to mention EVE).

      Can't think of anything else of interest, except maybe it has rained all summer so far, I went bike riding in the rain with Claire, Jenna and Gillian on Saturday ........... fun, fun, fun.

      Hope you all had a great weekend!

    • EVE and beyond

      10 years ago

      Sxndy

      Things are going good at the moment. A 250 man anti-pirate Corp moved into our area and we beat them off. Our small gang joined forces with 2 small Corps and made their life hell. Our job was Special Forces (what we do normally) and we busted every npc (non-player character) mission the hostiles took on, thus making it nearly impossible for them to earn money. Our Allies made the hostiles movements difficult by blocking their exits from space stations. All in all we killed a good number of them with small losses for us.

      We have big plans that are going to take a long time to realise, but when we’re finished our Special Forces team will be leet, and our skills will be second to none. Getting so specialised has its drawbacks as you kind of make yourself great at one thing and pretty poor at other things. But better to be the dogs bollocks at one thing than medico at all things eh? Exactly.


      Things are getting quiet here on RvB with good friends like Sam Sam and others moving on. I can’t blame them as technology has changed in the last few years and RvB has been left behind. There are a great number of top-notch sites on the net now and everyone is being lured to them.

      I’ve had a few characters here on RvB and had a lot of great times over the years. I don’t think I will have another char, and I don’t think I will move on even although things have gone flat. Social sites don’t have as much of an attraction for me as they did before (no time, too much killing to be done in EVE).

      Anyway, if I left who would look after Will?

      Other news is, in Jan my ISP told me I was getting a free upgrade from 4mb to 10mb *is still waiting* I’m sure it will happen, just when is the question.

      As an old friend said to me, “Enjoy yourself, you are a long time deadâ€Â


      So………………. go out and make babies and stuffs, whatever makes you happy.

    • Twinning of New York with Glasgow

      10 years ago

      Sxndy



      Recent statistics show that Glasgow (city in Scotland) is now a world leader in violent crime, even more so than New York. But does it get any recognition from game developers, sadly the short answer is no.

      I suspect that the main reason no-one makes games based here is because it has a low population, for example, 8.2 million people live in New York and only 5 million in the whole of Scotland.

      So come on game developers, Glasgow has worked so hard for its reputation. How about a GTA based around crime ridden streets of Scotland’s second city?


      I fear my plea will fall on deaf ears. On the whole Scotland has strived to make a violent contribution to the world throughout its long history.
      Wielding claymores (big knifes) and wearing skirts, we have always sought to be controversial. But never do you hear, “oh look, a Scotsman, run for your life†It’s always “Go give that gentleman some money, so he can buy a gun and a pair of trousersâ€Â

      To add insult to injury, Scotty in Star Trek was only a lowly engineer and he had an Irish accent.

      If you see me doing something crazy in the news, you will know I’m only doing it to promote one of the best nations in the world.

    • Momentous moment

      Sxndy

      My mate Dax and I got our 100th mission runner kill in EVE last night (since we started this new campaign to rid EVE of them and steal their loot)

      And guess what, the Fo0kin Kill Board broke so we couldn't post it.

      Anyway, f0ok you Kill Board, in my head I know I have made that many suffer.


      *is very pleased with his evil deeds*


      Yarrr!

    • Stupid developers broke eve

      10 years ago

      Sxndy

      Well EVE is broke and I never want to return to real life, so I’m sry but you (better than real life) friends are going to have to suffer me.

      As EVE is all I know anymore I will give you a quick run down of what has been going on.

      On New Years Eve @ 10pm my friend Dax and I killed a Chinese isk farmer hauling ship with over $1200.00 worth of stuff in it (how much it would cost if you bought the stuff from bad Chinese people on the internets)

      WE have now set up a Special Forces unit and spend all our eve time hunting and killing mission runners (missions are kind of like quests but in space)

      In the past 3 weeks we have killed around 40 -50 Battleships/battlecruisers and made about $100 (what it would cost to buy the eve money on the internet) from ransoming the ones we didn’t kill. We have also probed out a few mining ships, killed them and took the stuff they mined.

      All I need now is a USB connection from my brain to my PC and all will be good.

      :)

      Where is it?

      We were promised it was coming, well I ain't seen diddly squat and it's bloody freezing here.

      On the back of it I had promised the kids that soon they would be picking Oranges, Bananas and Lemons from trees in our garden. Scientists have made me out a liar to my own children ................ how can I look them straight in the face when they no longer believe a word I say.

      I'm going to give it one last bash and I need you to help.

      What I need you to do is break fridges, burn tyres, leave your engine running all night, turn the heating up at work and do anything else you can think of to help the green house effect.

      Lets get this bus moving!!

    • Free mod point!

      11 years ago

      Sxndy

      Yup, you read that right, I'm give away one whole mod point because it's Friday.

      Other news is that I need a barrow load of cash, Claire and Jenna need a new computer, I need mine upgraded, I need work done on my house, I need a new suit, I need a new car, I need a holiday and to top it off I need an operation on my face because something is growing on it. Could be one of those spiders nests that that you see on tv, dunno, just know it's getting bigger.

      I need ideas on how to make easy cash fast.

      I knew that Ishmanel was training leadership, which was why I figured he wouldn't be the one with the skills to pilot a carrier.

      Maybe a bad or outdated codec? Is this a problem with specific video formats?

      Personally I just use VLC, and it plays everything without a problem.

      thought about that too. So I ran all the anti-spyware programs and it didn't do anything either. However another update happened so it must have been something to do with the update that happened a couple of days ago.

      In consequence of this though, a good consequence, I found a plug-in that prevents ads from loading on webpages. It's friggin fantastic. No more stupid ads to annoy me, especially the friggin apple ones on Gizmodo and Engadget!

      Well I've got my 360 hooked up to it. I need to get HD cables though. That's small potatoes though.

      I'm gonna take Sarah's old desktop and throw in the tuner card from my pc and hook that up to the TV. I'm also gonna hook up wireless too it. I however need to get more ram and a larger hard drive for it. It's only rockin 256mb of ram and a 40gb harddrive. I'm gonna do a fresh install of XP on it too. Not gonna fuck around deleting shit off of it, just gonna start from scratch.

      I just really wish I could find a copy of Windows Media Center to put on it.

      I absolutely refuse to support Intel or Nvidia. This is the processor I'm thinking about. As far as Graphics cards go, I'm gonna stick with the one I have right now. My girlfriend doesn't need one and the mobo I'm giving her has on board graphics and that'll be fine for her. I'll definitely be working with 2gb of ram for now. And only one 500gb hard drive. I think I'll use the hard drive I have now as the windows drive and then just use the 500 for storage.

    • Stunto

      11 years ago

      Oh, crap. That would make for a rough day. Did you get podded, too?

      I've currently got the Drake fitted for missions and a Caracal fitted for loot & salvage - though level one missions give me hardly anything worth looting and salvaging. Nice thing about the Caracal is the speed and maneuverability for chasing cans and wrecks. As long as I keep an eye on my scanner and a horseshoe up my ass, I shouldn't need to worry about its lack of survivability compared with the Drake. I'll look into a Drake when capacity becomes a greater concern. So far as Ravens go, I'll wait until I'm running level three and four missions before I think about running around low sec too much with that much money insulating my ass from space.

      But let me know if you or the corp need anything. If someone needs something from me, I'll make more attempts to be on more often.
