    • Holy f'ing sh!t what happened?!

      7 years ago

      robluft

      Right before season 5 started up I decided to graduate, get a job, and let myself get distracted with stupid things like responsibilities and priorities. In that period of time I likely could count the number of times I've logged into my account on one hand...and the number of RvB videos on the other hand. Yes..ghost in the shell.

      Flash forward to today (easy right?) - I log in to see season 9 RvB vids are up, most of the friends on here are gone, kzuelch is still sexy as ever, and dark54555 is still a mod. Aside from that this is a new world. Hell Bernie, Geoff, and company have even gone legit...and big time. I don't know exactly WTF this RTX event is all about but it's an event in the greatest city in the world...Austin!!!! Thankfully that's only a couple hours from Houston and this might on the agenda of things to do.

      Boil it down..Im shocked how much has changed but not surprised. I am glad to see the group of guys I have first learned about during season one followed their dreams and it paid off for them. Congrats to the RT team!

    • So basically it's a thermo-nuclear bomb?

      Well let's just say that as a Chemical Engineering student you have a few great ideas that pop into your head. You know the situation - you hear something on the TV or radio about some horrible problem or crisis (like $3+/gallon gas) and think to yourself, "How could I fix that problem?"

      Well today was my day to do just that. After hearing the in-depth technology about methanol fuel cells for low power devices such as laptops, I started to think.

      That was the first step in the wrong direction for our hero.

      I managed to get some highly controlled materials from the research lab here at UF and started to construct my new and improved fuel cell for high power devices such as laser cannons. I steped back in amazement as I started to run power tests on this thing:

      Power: 2.2 kW ( 2.86 A, 768 V)
      Run Time: 14 minutes 28 seconds

      Granted this thing wasn't the best that's ever been made. And it was 4.3 ft^3. And it weighed 56 lbs. But it's bad ass!

      Oh yeah, the reason it didn't go any longer is that the damn thing build up so much heat that it actually melted the casing it was in. There's just something about hydrogen gas that is shooting out of a molten block of crap that's kind of scary.

      Next time I'll have a fan blowing air to cool it down...or maybe give it a bath to sit in....or let my ex stand near it (that cold hearted bitch) =)

      Have fun, take care and watch the news. You might be inspired to scortch the floor too.

      Since I can tell I'm not going to be on daily, can you all help me out and post some linkies to your favorite threads? I don't care if what section they are in, I just want to see if anything has gotten better since my departure. Oh yeah, and mod points will be the reward. Thanx.

      I just wanted to say, please don't take it presonal that I don't respond to all of your comments/messages. I would spend more time doing so but I need more than 4 hours of sleep a night. It's sad that I spend as much time eating as I do sleeping... and I still need to gain some weight.

    • The great return

      13 years ago

      robluft

      Lets just say that my life has been one wild ride. I thank you all for those crazy/informative/random/thoughtful messages that you sent me (about 46 I believe). I can't believe that I went from very regular to nonexistant on here but that is the way life goes sometimes....

      I hope that you all have been wonderful and I will speak to you again in about another 6-8 months hehe. Late.

    • Hello everyone!

      robluft

      Sorry I haven't been on in a VERY long time but it's been a ride from hell that I hope none of you ever have to experience yourselves. If you do, please know you can contact me anytime if you need to talk. So you know what I am talking about, here's a recap of my life since August 7, 2005:

      1) I was hit by a black Honda Civic...while walking in a crosswalk...and I was across three of the four lanes.

      2) One of my friends here in Gainesville learned that his mom committed sucide.

      3) My best friends parents were killed in a car accident. The kicker is that we were all suppose to be in the car to go have lunch. < - This has been messin' with my head hardcore.

      4) More crap, but it is trivial in compairson to 3)

      To keep you all from having a pitty party for me, here's some "fluffy" things to check out:

      Master Cheif will hit the big screen

      Google in the VoIP market now...destroy all things Microcrap

      Next headline - VMA is shut down for child porn ring (R. Kelly)

    • How long have I been away?

      I know I'm not online very much but I was shocked when I was just going around and checking some stuff out. Then I came across something interesting. Hopefully this series has this type of longivity, but this is what I call super-inflating the statistics:

      Look close for something *different*

    • Finally got here

      14 years ago

      robluft

      I have finally visited the site and I noticed something...different. I can't quite place my finger on it but I know there is something. Oh, I got it. They have a new picture up top! Just kidding. The new and "improved" v1.5 of the site is cool. I like some of the new upgrades and the new look.

      However, I have to say there is some major strangeness going on. My mod points available has dropped 50 points from the transfer. Also, there are some lags on uploading pages that are longer than before (but that is expected). Finally, I think that the forums have become a little dull with the release of the last episode of the season. Just my personal opinion.

      If you know of some killer threads, shoot me a suggestion and I'll check it out. Late.

      If you haven't already come across this 12 part series of animation available on the net (for free), then go on over to Ninjai.com and check it out. Let me know what you think if you haven't already seen it, and if you have put a couple of comments about what you think of the series. Late.

      Good movies... Kill Bill and LOTR... can't go wrong. As for music, you've probably got a few Jimi Hendrix songs (at least), but not many people know about one of his best albums: Martin Scorsese Presents The Blues: Jimi Hendrix. It's amazing, you should check it out. Martin Scorsese Presents The Blues: Jimi Hendrix.

      Hey, good idea to thank the mods for making the forums a less tumor-inducing place to visit, I'm with you all the way on that one. What is up with that uncleben guy?
