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.

So, it's almost been two weeks now.

Yeah. How's life in the Kinda-Barely-Hanging-In-There-But-Still-United National Socialist* Dictatorship of America?
Have you been rounded up the Gestapo yet?

 

* Not actual socialist, of course. Shit. I guess that's why they're going with "alt-right" now! Because socialism is a dirty word! Fuck me, why did that take so long!

I'm still here. It takes 1-2 years for the situation to deteriorate that far, and already there's people moving to oppose Zumpf and Co. before the Point of No Return even shows up on the radar.

" The President is reportedly fuming because he wasn’t told the piece of paper he signed would put Steve Bannon on the crucial committee. "

I should sneak a paper onto his desk stating that he appoints Bernie as VP and resigns, as he apparently can't be held responsible for his own orders...

... I'll race you there.
I'm gonna be the first foreign (as in first non-US born after George Washington) president in the history of the United States of America.

I was gonna put myself there, but that sounds like a lot of work. Also, I don't think the US president can choose a VP that isn't US-born.

I mean, I guess you could get a pretty good wage but I just don't think it would be worth it. Less time spent polishing the turd that is US politics is more time you can spend drinking nikka whiskey on your hobbies.

Vice President?
No, no. I'm gonna have Trump sign over the presidency over to me. The big job.

Assigning a VP and resigning is the de-facto way for a US president to hand over the presidency.

Disclaimer: like 50% of my knowledge about how the US government works is from House of Cards :P

 

Also, does anyone know how to permanently change the colour for writing here? Writing grey on white is annoying as hell.

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.

I ordered a HTC VIVE today (incidentally, I keep typing HTV VICE every bloody time...).

That's a thing that happened.

Oh nice, haven't ever experienced VR myself but devs seem to adapting to the new technology quite fast. (from what I can tell from N^3's videos anyways :P). I assume you have the space for it? I've a feeling that if I tried to set one up I would smash something within an hour...

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.

So, HTC VIVE?
Fucking amazing.

It's got some minor niggles, but they're of the kind you work around.
Like, you can't use your eyes to look around very well. If it's in the corner of your eye, you need to move your head to look at it.

But it's so damned cool to just walk around and "touch" things.

I hate minecraft. I recently got on my last playthrough on my own, super-secret, hidden, near-perfect-but-not-flawless modpack....

 

and I immediately died because my fishing line caught a swordfish by mistake and it attacked and I fell in the ocean and it killed me.

The swordfish, not the ocean.

 

So I thought of quickly going through my base to grab some defense and armour and potions for breathing and.... fuck it. I just reload my savefile. Surely I must have saved last time I played?

 

 

NOOOOOPE! I got back to a save where my base wasn't even finished.

Fuck fuck fak fck faaak!

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.

mines a contradiction to the majority of all packs. It's not a kitchen sink and it has zero tech.

It also has liteloader, because I wanted background sounds like bird chirping and waves hitting the beach. Wont work on toasters

Hey guys remember Tekkit?  I have to say, after a refreshing year+ long break from Minecraft, it's pretty fun.

Bytemaster says he could run a server for us if there's general interest.  The other option of course being Factorio.

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. :science:

Minecraft sucks now.
How do you manually install modpacks these days?

Any tutorial I've seen is either for older versions, or it suggests using a Twitch app or Curse app, or lord-knows-what-else app.

I just want to try a goddamned modpack without installing an app I'll never use again, dammit.

School is absolutely nuts. I don't know if I ever mentioned what I'm doing these days.

Boiled down it's mechatronics with co-op and a multi semester capstone project that I'll be working on all summer to finish with a team of 12 other students.

Good news is that I already have a monster of a job offer that'll be kickass and pays a stupid amount. I'll be able to get a Vive really soon after I start!

It's been nothing but work work work even on my time off. That said I have a week off at the moment so:

      So i setup a mob grinder spawning slimes and i threw in zombie pigmen to grind gold and i came back after a little while to check the chests and i found a random enchanted sign with sharpness 4 knockback 2 and fire aspect 1 and +10 health when you are holding it in your hands. It is jsut a normal sign from minecraft with enchants and health when you mouse over it. Any idea what mod makes these drop? What mob drops them? What the rate is?

      Noticing an issue with Modular Powersuits. There are random massive overheats which lead to death. Found a video containing what I've noticed here. Found a server's forums listing the issue here. This started in 1.2.8 and has gotten worse with 1.2.9. I am trying to test what might be causing it, and I would like some help. If you've already figured this out or the answer is somewhere I haven't looked yet please let me know.
       
      Thank you.

      UPDATE: I looked into a bit more and tried getting my client to crash and I finally did it. It mentioned that the reason for the crash was something along the lines of "Weak map hash.".
       
      I'll keep this short and to the point. Issue(s):
       
       
       
       
      Other than these issues, the mod pack runs extremely well and so far hasn't caused any noticeable frame rate drops despite the 100+ mods. LAN was run with 1 other person and under most instances both me and the other client were in the same Dimension at all times barring the teleporting sequence. The other client experiences no lag spikes after he/I go to the Nether. I think the random crashes are not crashes at all, rather the game closing it's self for some reason. It's not caused by any one thing and happens randomly.
       
      Edits:
      Added quotes due to editor mashing everything together.
      Sorry if it's hard to read. Every time I make it formatted nicely it adds all the lines into one long one.
