  1. Yup. Whichever you guys want, I'll get it running. I don't think I can do both at once though. Factorio 0.15 is 99% done and has recently been pushed to the experimental build, so we could start it next week (after I finish my finals), or any modpack you guys want would be great as well. Let me know if you have any candidates you want. That said, whichever we end up going with, I've acquired some battery UPS units from a surplus sale, which I'll be adding to the router and server, so the server will be super duper reliable.
  2. What's the theme of the modpack? Sounds kind of interesting. Imagine how quickly you could get motionsick if it supported VR. Glad to hear it's impressive. I think I'll have to wait for a price drop, but that does sound really appealing.
  3. Alright that's it. Ain't nobody topping this. In fact you could say. That it's Number one. Factorio .15 is coming really soon and looking really good on the performance end, so even those with toasters should be able to join, and my core2duo server should be able to run it well. -> https://www.factorio.com/blog/post/fff-185 We've also upgraded our internet to a wired connection. It has a tiny bit less burst upload speed, but on the plus side it has waaaaay better reliability, so no more random drops like when we had that tekkit legends server way back when. I look forward to playing with y'all when it comes out, it's gonna be great. I'll also likely invite some nerds normal attractive people I've met over from Netrunner land, so there'll be more than enough activity to make things interesting. For those who didn't get the reference in the video: How's everybody's schooling going? (Where applicable.) I've actually started tutoring in my university as a part time gig.
  4. You'll have to let us know your thoughts, I've been pondering getting one with my stock market funny money.
  5. Turns out my personally most common and rattling nightmare is also one of the most realistic; Walking up to my computer only to discover that it's been hijacked for heaven-knows-how-long and is being remotely accessed. Factorio 0.15 update is taking longer than I thought, but it looks amazing and is nearly here. Lots of new stuff and tons of optimizations. As soon as it's released I'll put up a server.
  6. Apparently it's anime week on r/music. I was going to make a horrible anime opening song joke but I decided not to. You're;re welcome. I think mist is the most beautiful natural phenomenon. I don't know why, I just like it.
  7. I wonder if any pop songs have sampled the steam notification sound yet?

  8. IIRC, the devs off-the-cuff said early February at one point, but I'd be hard pressed to find where I read that again.
  9. Okay, so, here's the deal. I'm not sure if I'll have the time/willpower to set it up this week, and the week after that will be the first week of the new semester. My estimate for any kind of timetable is unpredictable at best, but the lessons I learned from the old KJ Technic Legends server, (as well as the large amount of learning I've done concerning Linux), will help a lot, so it might actually not be all that bad. That said, the way I see it, we have three options for the server. 1. Run stock on the latest version. (0.14) 2. Wait for 0.15 to come out, which will have a *lot* of new content and tweaks. 3. Embrace the darkness and use mods.
  10. Great way to start off the year: my youtube mixtape, which is exactly on time as promised: I've played it a bit and would love to try multi as well. Would y'all be interested in a persistent Kitty Jail server? Given some patience, I could run it on this spare laptop I have next to me. Donald Trump would like to have a word with you.
  11. I got a Steam Controller and Steam Link for Christmas. I'm honestly impressed by how good they are, the link in particular. On a wired network it's pretty much indistinguishable from playing at my desktop. I mean, no-one is going to be playing pro CSGO on a Link anytime soon, but still, it's consistently adding about ~3ms display lag/ ~1ms added input lag according to the debug stats. Vsync alone is usually worse than this IIRC. As far as graphical artifacts, it's basically perfect. The only time I noticed anything at all was when the GPU, (R9 Fury), was pushed to the absolute limit, and even then it was still plenty playable. The Steam Controller, well, it's also better than I thought it would be. It's a learning curve, and once in a while it's a tad clunky handling games with no built-in normal controller support, but the controller itself is plenty serviceable, and I'm loving the community profiles. The control-scheme tweaking looks very in-depth, but I haven't needed it so far. (Still working on youtube mixtape.)
  12. Remember spirographs? Those little gear thingies you could make swirly shapes with? Behold: http://nathanfriend.io/inspirograph/ You're welcome.
  13. Grid 3 is free on HB -> https://www.humblebundle.com/store/grid-free-game My Christmas New Years present to everyone this year is going to be a mixtape. You can use the fire from it to keep warm. Is there any type of music anyone specifically wants?
  14. We got a good storm here today, I was convinced that it was gonna keep going. A few hours later and it's all melted :< Digging around in my pictures folder a little, here's a throwback I found: Anyone else want me to MS Paint something? Bored here. If nothing gets suggested I'll repost the other MS paint art I made forever ago. The one that made Lethosos want to dig his single eye out with a rusty ice cream scoop. Of course that's a thing. OF COURSE. How horrible. Stuff like this is why humanity is doomed. Where do you even find that stuff? Exactly what specific site would sell such a thing to people? >.> I predict it's out for a month, (two tops), before custom models and voicebanks hit. At that point I also predict people will start breaking into modded-gatebox-user homes just to literally throw peoples' waifus in the trash or flush them down the toilet. Because, well, that's where your waifu belongs.
  15. Dandruff from clouds. They must be using some of that special shampoo lately, last year was horrible too.
  16. Threadzilla 2; electric boogaloo. How're you all doing snow-wise? I'm a little disappointed here, but at least there's SOME snow on the ground most days.
  17. BRB crowdfunding development of the ultimate crowdfunding campaign. Part of me wonders if this is actually real. I mean, it's... ~$100,000$ to run a backhoe for 48h? Is that really what it costs?
  18. This has been stuck in my head for approximately forty thousand hours, enjoy. Nice ambient work track.
  19. I've never tried one, TBH. Maybe I just like the idea of them then? *shrugs* Well at any rate, the Mini NES can run Linux. (I mean, it's just an ARM chip, so not really surprising, but still.) http://arstechnica.com/gaming/2016/11/nes-classic-joins-the-can-it-run-linux-club-has-custom-distro-installed/ --- Me and another person here have decided to throw money at AMD stock. It's um... https://www.google.com/finance?q=NASDAQ:AMD Well it's at a five-year high right now, so you tell me. If it spikes come Zen in the spring, I'd be tempted to blow the earnings on a Vive, any reasons why I shouldn't? Is there another version in the works or something? Or is the content drought really as bad as I've heard? EDIT: Are there three spammers active right now, or have they figured out that they posts will stay up marginally longer if they use more accounts?
  20. I do usually try to avoid getting TOO hyped for big AAA games, but does anyone else think this looks amazing? (Skip to 2:40 for gameplay) I can only imagine how much better it'd look on my PC Please no crappy PC port (づ ̄ ³ ̄)づ
  21. IIRC, the mini NES is actually more powerful than the Wii. I'm impressed that exists, honestly. Now to get a SNES emulator running in a 3DS emulator running on my emulated Android phone which uses a JVM which... Okay, in all seriousness, I do rather enjoy having a (non-3)DS emulator on my phone. ALSO: DIRT 3 is *free* right now on the humble store -> https://www.humblebundle.com/store/dirt-3-complete-edition-free-game
  22. I'd really hate to see Canada fall to that.
  23. Welcome back. Also, I've realized something: Microsoft powershell can be split up into Microsoft Powers Hell iDOOMinati confirmed. EDIT: Why am I such a sucker for these games? I'd buy it instantly but I'm worried I'd just start ditching schoolwork to learn javascript instead.
  24. Well we can add vine to the list of things the Kitty Jail will outlive.
  25. I always exercise on the 7.5th day of the week.
