      emotsirenjn9.gifI'm not flaming and I've actually got something constructive to say!emotsirenjn9.gif

      Now that I've got that away, let me start flaming on why these forums are "like a brand new lexus that someone decided to use as their personal toilet." The forums are extremely unorganized. A huge portion of the forums barely move with content at all because even though we have over ~1500 users online at any given time, the forum is just so vast with many sub forums being about the same thing. All that ends up happening is that users will pick a sub forum and start circle jerking in that forum (yes, I'm also talking about the BAR).

      •You don't need to divide games up by its console/platform. If you pile all the games into one forum then you'll have an amazing forum that's full of activity. Yes there will be shitty threads, but when you've got 23 gaming forums that all need to be moderated then I'm pretty sure that condensing it all to 3 sub forums should be cake.
      •The Level 20+, 18 and Up, General Discussion, and The Basement are all general discussion areas. Right there you've divided your user base four times. I say you keep the 18 and Up forum, and the General Discussion forum. Kill off the rest. You don't need The Basement. Many of the members responsible for the flaming are gone, and everyone else has mellowed down. There are enough mods to keep the flaming down, especially if the forums get organized.
      •The Gears of War Forum has 11 topics. That's 11 topics users can be talking about in a single Gears of War thread. Same goes for all the other forums about a single game. Except for Halo. RT's fan base comes mostly from RvB, and back in the old days we had like 15 new threads a day about Halo so I can see why it gets its own forum.

      If this necessary clean up happens, then these forums would actually be very decent. The mod point system, profiles, and all the little neat bells and whistles that this site has are amazing and it's a shame that there really isn't a visible community that uses. Here's what I think the forum should look like.

    • Drugs: Even the Bar hates it.

      This thread is for the discussion of drug related activities, since the BAR doesn't really want that kind of talk in there for some stupid reason. Don't talk about alcohol here, take that shit to the BAR.

      Mostly everything here is illegal. Check with state/local laws before trying anything. Also, read this first you fucking pubie and make sure to do your research. Erowid is the best place to start

      Before I begin, I don't condone in minors doing any sort of drug. The first time I tried weed was February of this year when I was 19. You kids have better things to do. Go outside and have sex or something. Save the drugs for when you get to college. It's easier to get, and it's much more satisfying.

      Now to start things off, let's get a run down of what drugs are and what to do and what to avoid.

      Weed: Everyone's favorite herb.
      Cannabis (weed) is one of the most commonly consumed illegal drug in the world, here's some info on that drug everybody loves, or everybody loves to hate.

      Weed contains a few ingredients that get you high, but the most known and primary ingredient is Delta-9 Tetrahydrocannabinol or THC. This chemical works with the other Cannabidol's to get you "high". Note that
      THC is not water soluble. This means it won't mix with anything containing water. Knowing this is important, because it keeps you stupid fucks from snorting the shit and attempting to make tea. That's why it works in brownies, because it mixes with oil.

      Consumption:
      When consuming weed via inhalation, it's important to inhale so it reaches your lungs. Fill your lungs baby! Also, it's not necessary to hold it for more than 5 seconds. It's all absorbed almost instantly, and holding it longer just allows tar to settle on your lungs.

      Joints/Blunts/Pipes/Bongs. All of these methods involve the burning and inhaling the crude combustion of weed. Joints are purely weed wrapped in rolling paper. Blunts contain Tobacco. Pipes are simply a pipe to smoke the weed, and bongs use water to filter out any nasties and to make the smoke smoother and easier to inhale. Of course there's more to it than that, but you'll learn over time.

      Vaporization
      Vaporizing is my favorite way to consume weed. Instead of combusting the weed (as described above) you heat the weed to the point at which the active ingredients are transformed from the liquid or solid phase to the gas phase (vapor). This method is quite healthy as it doesn't involve any smoke. If you want a handy portable vape, I recommend purchasing a Vapor Genie pipe. It's cheap ($50), no smoke, and very little smell. Perfect for those of you in dorms, or you delinquents.

      Edibles.
      Since weed is oil soluble, you can mix it with anything containing fat and consume it. This is by far the healthiest way to get high, and the most intense way to get high. Rule of the thumb is it's twice as strong, twice as long, but takes twice as much. Here is a guide to get you started.

    • Yarr, I be turning an Xbox into a PC!

      in Forums > Yarr, I be turning an Xbox into a PC! | Follow this topic

      Crossposted from SA. I still love most of you Tech guys.

      Some dumb kid in my apartment complex sold me his Xbox that he successfully bricked for $10. Since I don't really care for mod chips, I decided to try something new and create a media center PC. I'm always taking my gaming machine to my friends house, so now I can take a smaller PC to hook up to his big screen and play some Stepmania with dance pads, or some multi-player games with USB controllers.

      I had recently done a full upgrade to my current machine, so I have quite a few parts laying around. I took advantage, and I bought myself a Mini-ATX ASUS A8V-VM SE. I've got an AMD64 3500+ processor, and 1GB (2x 512Mb) of RAM to accompany this board.

      First things first. Gut the Xbox, tear shit up, and get hurt.

      xbox012mx0.jpg

      Like I said, I usually take my PC to my friends house and hook it up to his big screen. We'll usually watch a movie, listen to music, or play some Stepmania with USB dance pads. Sometimes we'll plug up Xbox360 controllers, or the PS3 Sixaxis controllers and play some SNES games and such. I had to have USB ports on the front to take advantage of all this, so that's what I did.

      Now, Xbox controllers are essentially USB ports, but they are a bit bigger. So they had to go.
      xbox006oh2.jpg
      Please excuse the shitty dremel work, I promise the other ports didn't get hacked that bad.

      For the USB ports, I used the addon that came with my Foxconn motherboard.
      xbox020pc3.jpg

      I love tearing shit apart.
      xbox021vq5.jpg

      Uncovering the USB port was like finding buried treasure in a see of rubber. It took me about 15 minutes of sanding, and slowly slicing away at the rubber just to make sure it came out ok.
      xbox022qf7.jpg

      After fighting with the glue gun, I had myself a USB-Controller port. You can also see the gash on my thumb that the dremel gave me.
      xbox023dd0.jpg

      Now, all I had to do was install the motherboard. That was it's own little challenge, since I had to figure out how to keep the motherboard in place. Also, getting that face plate in the back was a task on it's own. It still needs some tweaking done.

      I'm turning an Xbox into a media center computer. I've already turned the xbox controller ports into USB ports. I gutted the xbox, and have it prepared for a Mini-ATX motherboard that should be arriving today, or tomorrow.

      I'm in the market for some really tiny power supplies, and i've found a website with exactly what I need. Problem is, they are all 20 pin. The motherboard I got is 24 pin.

      So, does anyone know if the motherboard could accept a 20 pin power supply, and still run even though it's missing the other 4 plugs? Are there any adapters I could buy, that are easy to install? Or maybe someone knows of a tiny powersupply that already has 24 pins?

      Yes, it's been confirmed. Sega annouced it. No, it's not some April Fools joke. This is the real deal. Finally, a NiGHTS sequel is being made for the Wii. I'm so excited. I loved the original game, and I still have music from it on my playlist. I just hope the keep the relaxing tunes, and the original storyline.

    • Nvidia Driver problems

      in Forums > Nvidia Driver problems | Follow this topic

      darkstitch

      I'm on my friends pc, and his computer started to randomly loop through the Windows loading screen. It would just keep restarting, so I told him to start on safemode and it worked. He then called me and said that "The Nvidia drivers arent loading, and the computer is working now". So I told him to uninstall them, and the computer starts to work again. He has a geforce 6800 XT. Except now it has a lag because the Windows drivers suck.

      We tried the Omega drivers as an alternative, but the lag is still here. Games don't work either. Also, once we reinstall the Nvidia drivers the computer will go back into the restarting loop until we boot into Safemode.

      Also, we just installed a fresh copy of Windows because we thought Windows had gotten corrupted over time.

      Basic specs are:
      AMD64 3800 x2.
      1gb of Kingston RAM
      Geforce 6800 XT.
