    • I Like Monkeys

      11 years ago

      teamcoltra

      I don't know where i found this, so just enjoy it:
      I like monkeys.

      The pet store was selling them for five cents a piece. I thought that
      odd since they were normally a couple thousand each. I decided not to
      look a gift horse in the mouth. I bought 200. I like monkeys.

      I took my 200 monkeys home. I have a big car. I let one drive. His
      name was Sigmund. He was retarded. In fact, none of them were really
      bright. They kept punching themselves in their genitals. I laughed.
      Then they punched my genitals. I stopped laughing.

      I herded them into my room. They didn't adapt very well to their new
      environment. They would screech, hurl themselves off of the couch at
      high speeds and slam into the wall. Although humorous at first, the
      spectacle lost its novelty halfway into its third hour.

      Two hours later I found out why all the monkeys were so inexpensive:
      they all died. No apparent reason. They all just sorta' dropped dead.
      Kinda' like when you buy a goldfish and it dies five hours later. Damn
      cheap monkeys.

      I didn't know what to do. There were 200 dead monkeys lying all over my
      room, on the bed, in the dresser, hanging from my bookcase. It looked
      like I had 200 throw rugs.

      I tried to flush one down the toilet. It didn't work. It got stuck.
      Then I had one dead, wet monkey and 199 dead, dry monkeys.

      I tried pretending that they were just stuffed animals. That worked for
      a while, that is until they began to decompose. It started to smell real
      bad.

      I had to pee but there was a dead monkey in the toilet and I didn't want
      to call the plumber. I was embarrassed.

      I tried to slow down the decomposition by freezing them. Unfortunately
      there was only enough room for two monkeys at a time so I had to change
      them every 30 seconds. I also had to eat all the food in the freezer so
      it didn't all go bad.

      I tried burning them. Little did I know my bed was flammable. I had to
      extinguish the fire.

      Then I had one dead, wet monkey in my toilet, two dead, frozen monkeys in
      my freezer, and 197 dead, charred monkeys in a pile on my bed. The odor
      wasn't improving.

      I became agitated at my inability to dispose of my monkeys and to use the
      bathroom. I severely beat one of my monkeys. I felt better.

      I tried throwing them way but the garbage man said that the city wasn't
      allowed to dispose of charred primates. I told him that I had a wet
      one. He couldn't take that one either. I didn't bother asking about the
      frozen ones.

      I finally arrived at a solution. I gave them out as Christmas gifts. My
      friends didn't know quite what to say. They pretended that they like
      them but I could tell they were lying. Ingrates. So I punched them in
      the genitals.

      I like monkeys


    • Someone is trying to get me?

      11 years ago

      teamcoltra

      3 Days ago I got a text message from my cellphone company saying "your account password has been successfully reset, here is your new password"

      Wtf? I didn't reset it... so it said if I did not try to reset it... call up #WEB so i did, and it gave me that phone equivalent of a 404 error.

      Today I go in to my bank account (because I know I have been spending money I don't have... but I don't really have a choice) to see how much debt i am actually in... and it said "too many attempts on your account to login, you now have to go through this long ass process to change your password" (which my thinking is... if they didn't figure it out... why do i have to change it? seems like this one i got is working great :D )

      there have been some other odd things like that.

      Now here is the thing:

      my phone and my bank account are the only 2 usernames that are NOT teamcoltra, although my phone username is just my phone number... my bank account username is tmccrea#### (4 random numbers)... how the fuck does the person who is trying to get in my account know that?

      I was thinking: Keylogger

      but if they had the logs of my key strokes then they would also have my password. People are dumb, if you want to hack me... hack me good... that way I can tell the people at the bank that I didn't charge that much and someone hacked my bank account ;) ;)


    • Persistent Browser-Based Games

      in Forums > Persistent Browser-Based Games | Follow this topic

      teamcoltra

      By definition a persistent browser-based game (PBBG) is a computer game that is both browser-based (accessed and played over the Internet only through a web browser) and persistent (able to progress with successive playing sessions). These games are fun because you don't have to put hours and hours in, and typically they are unblocked by company networks because they are not high bandwidth (ie they don't fly red flags).

      As the co-owner and co-founder of Oil Conquest (refid is to tell me how many people I am able to bring into the game for my own personal interest, i get a bonus too however its not why I am using it in my link), I am interested in seeing how many members are currently playing a PBBG game. There are thousands of games, and new ones coming out all the time.

      My favorite type of PBBG is nation simulation, and war simulation in particular which is why I created the simi-realistic game that i did (I don't want to use this thread to advertise for it too much so I will leave it at that.. I will have another thread for advertising my game). There are many other types of simulations and situations that you can play in.

      So what kind of game do YOU play, or have you never played one before?

      This will be a fun thread to discuss how many of us RvBers are in the same games.

    • Graduation Announcements/Gifts

      11 years ago

      teamcoltra

      So, in a nice little change up... I decided to send some of my closest friends a cool graduation announcement but instead of asking for a gift... I included one... nothing too major... I sent a DVD of my Sr. Year in High School (in a good coltra twisty way), and blah blah blahs ... the usual thank you for supporting me. You are really cool...

      BUUUT after talking to a few people, NO SINGLE PERSON got the gift... or the card (which was all included in one nice little package... with a drip of wax... the works...

      This all seems like some lie to get me out of actually sending them... but this whole story is like a nightmare (oh btw, remind me and I will tell you my dream last night). I started this whole process about 3+ months ago... I asked for all your addresses. I had them all in one email that I had sent to myself in my email... but after I forgot to logoff in my computer library some punk decided to delete all my emails... and I only had a few of your addresses still here in my PM.

      To make things worse, I had a hard drive crash, so I don't have a copy of the movie... only the ones I have already sent off into the abiss. Anyone who knows me, knows that unlike my old self, I don't back up anything.


      So here is the jist:
      I will try to get all those addresses again, and will be mailing out a new invite/announcement (you can't really be "invited" since I am not going to be physically walking... though the card says invited).
      I don't have the means to send you all anything this time... so the cool "Get a gift in a graduation announcement" is lost.

      If I had not asked you for your address: Please don't take offense, I just forgot some people who didn't come right to my mind. If you wish to PM me your address I will send you a card too.

      IN CONCLUSION: Back everything up. I know that those addresses are in a backup email account somewhere... I just can't remember what the password. travis@mccreafam.com <-- nice backup email domain.

      I love you all....
      oh btw I graduate in a week

    • [Blog] Let US Controll The Economy

      11 years ago

      teamcoltra

      Please Visit My Blog
      Well, taking a step back from politics and real world economy, I wanted to point out something in video games that I think really needs to be fixed. The type of video game: MMOs. The flaw: Static economy with no way to make money.

      I have been playing the wonderful game of 2moons for a while and I think this game highlights my displeasure in static economies. There are 6 different classes, and for the most part, once you take a class you have a limited amount of items that is for your class and there really isn’t many “generic†items. Inside your items there is a leveling system, to explain, it basically works like this: 2moons doesn’t display other character’s level… but you only have 1 choice of armor to upgrade into so you can vaguely tell what level a character is by what they are wearing. However, there is no choice in what you can buy, for instance you cannot buy armor with strong magic defense, or even different armors that just look different, so in the market place, there is little room to buy and sell items, although there are weapons with powerups you cannot buy in stores… Its not as simple as going to a grand exchange like in runescape or even a place where you can go to buy and sell items.

      Here is how the current economic system works: You can buy your armor, or you can kill bad guys out in the woods and hope they drop something good that you might be able to sell. However, it will take a long time to find someone in that level range, that needs THAT item, that is part of THAT class. You can keep killing bad guys to make money to purchase more items from the store, but it is all bland, and you cannot really shop around for a better deal because the store undercuts what normal people will sell it at… since it is so hard to find a buyer.

      Here is what I think every MMO economy needs:

      1. Choices - If you have generic stock in the stores, then also have other types of armor and weapons that you can only find in the wild.
      2. Ability to Create - If you can go out and find wood/metal etc… then you could also then create your own armor and weapons and sell them at a low cost.
      3. A Market Area - A place where members can go to buy/sell/trade items. This place is not moderated or anything else, so buyers beware.

      I just cannot feel too involved when I feel like I am leading the same life as every other single guy in the game. 2moons judges your success over your ability to kill other people/monsters, but maybe I want to judge my success by having millions and millions of dollars. The reason you play an MMO instead of an FPS is because you want non-linear game play. The economy makes the game, and in every game I ever make, web-based or otherwise, I always allow my users to make/break the economy. Choices are everything.

    • [Blog] Its Not as Bad as you Think

      11 years ago

      teamcoltra

      [Please view my site]
      It’s clear to anyone who has been in contact with the public in the United States, that people are NOT happy with current gas prices. It is also clear that we are NOT happy with the current war. We, the citizens of the United States do not want the United States in wars for oil (which I will stand by the fact that we still have yet to make a penny off Iraq oil) but we want the government to make gas cheaper for us… because we all know we won’t go out and buy a hybrid. Which leads me to think: Is life really that bad for Americans?

      Lets look at what we pay in gas compared to other countries:
      (Price is in $USD/Gallon)
      Australia $5.60
      Turkey $10.14
      Italy $8.78
      France $8.06
      Hong Kong $7.56
      Canada $5.19

      Really the only two major countries who pay LESS than us, is China and Russia (interesting):
      China $2.80
      Russia (Moscow) $3.79
      (s)

      I don’t think we are doing too badly with our $3.93 a gallon, sure we are now going to have to cut our lifestyles back a bit, but our “go crazy with all this money†phase has been going on for a long time, while the rest of the world is suffering. I find it insulting to the people who are suffering daily due to lack of protection and money these people are dying because they have nothing. These are just a few random articles that I haven’t even really had a chance to look at but they all say the same thing: People are dying, while greedy Americans complain about not being able to go to the movie every weekend.

      Our lives are not that bad, and if we would fix our government (if it is possible it may have already passed the point of no return in some aspects), we could have LOTS of extra money to work with. An American citizen can pay up to 45% of their income in taxes this is more than Canada and the United Kingdom, both socialist countries who can provide things such as universal health care. I am not saying we need to offering things such as that, however, how is it that we have MORE citizens paying MORE money than other countries?

      We have bloated government, too much money going into too many programs that don’t do anything. We are so concerned with making sure that our money is going to where it was designated that we create these redundant systems. Unfortunately we have so many systems in place that waste so much money, I don’t know if we even have the ability to take this task on. It would take all the senators (WORKING TOGETHER) many months, possibly years, to complete this monumental task.

      We need not complain about our gas prices, we need to figure a way to fix our government. This is my one big problem with the Democratic Party. They want to INCREASE our already massive government, which actually leads me to a big problem of the Republicans… they won’t fix the big government when we give them the chance… I can almost promise you that the Republican nominee will fix it.

      Americans are so concerned with being able to go to the movies every week and such, that they lose sight of the fact that we really have it good. If we want to fix the problems that we have, we don’t need to look into other countries, we need to look here at home and actually see how much waist their is. This is the key to our success, if we don’t want to fix it is fine.

      Fix the issues at hand, or live without the extra trip to the movies, or don’t go out to dinner every other night. Americans need to remember that we are still living very well… and to complain about 3.95 is pathetic, there are people around the world who are dying… I am sure they would be MORE than willing to trade lives with you and pay even $5 a gallon.

      Hey again TC, saw a note about your project at e107. Good luck.
      Anyway, I have changed a lot at HLW, the Halo Live Wire news site i constantly work on. The latest one has the userbar i mentioned, a very hacked up version of the tagcloud plugin, custom theme finally finished, styled expanding search box (activate it and see), new page background, noscript lightbox effect, in css (disable javascript temporarily, and see how cool it is), stylized login and pass, and many other cool features.
      halolivewire.com
      Now im going to mess around with ajax to see if i can clean up user pages.

      halolivewire.com
      In any browser that doesn't suck balls (anything other than IE), the top bar will have transparency. Scroll the page down, and you'll see. Also, i modded tinyMCE that is included with e107 to have several new fields, even a drag down to resize the forum tool.

      That site isnt actually in e107, its a forum software, because i wanted to try something different. The problem with e107 is that it doesnt have enough ajax magic. Yes, the chatbox uses ajax, and it works damn well, and the interface is the most well developed, but at times, i want something else. Anyway, when CG makes flippol, it will be something completely new. CG are the guys who made this site and a few others. Supposedly, Flippol should be the same CMS, so you will be able to set up the RvB fansite you wanted.

Simply cause all I cared about was could I reach 50 before the end of 2006. Well I exceeded that.. and really honestly it is not like I get anything for a high Karma or mods... so they do not mean much to me. I gave away another 50 this week just cause I could.
