One such example is the DYNAPAK from CureLife which is a complete multi-function individual first-aid system designed and constructed for the rigors of field use. With CureLife’s proprietary serum, a single DYNAPAK will promote healing in non-serious wounds to get you back on your feet.

I think Izzy needs to role play a sales rep for CureLife.

Just wanted to point out that Oawa, Packer lover and bear hater, started Jay Cutler today.  And at halftime... he's a big 0.

Other Games and Interests / One Day Left! - The Repopulation Access for $25
« on: November 20, 2014, 11:36:30 am »
Man, wish I'd realized this sooner, I'd have been making noise the past week about it.

https://www.therepopulation.com/index.php/news/177-immediate-testing-access-is-now-25-funding-round-ends-nov-21

You can get into all the alpha and beta phases of The Repopulation for $25, but that sale ends tomorrow.  Quick FAQ below.

• We strive to keep servers available 24/7. This means you can test any time of the day or week. However, we do have a planned server cluster upgrade starting November 24th, so read on further for more details.
• We have patches that happen every other Wednesday. This requires an outage, just like any other MMO.
• You will have access a few minutes after confirming your pledge.
• It is an Alpha, there can be technical issues and other problems that can cause an outage. This is a very rare occurrence though so far.
• Yes there will be a wipe or two before we release.
• Further Beta testing is included, so you will have access to ALL testing rounds.
• Hardcore Ruleset is slated to start testing in late Beta, so it is currently not an option. Open world PvP is an option in the contested areas on the Normal server and flagged/arena PvP options are available as well. PvE is plentiful in the faction zones and PvP is only available if flagged or in the arena in the faction regions.
• NDA is currently in effect, we plan on lifting it soon.
• There is no Region locking. Servers currently are in North America, there might be more later in other geographical locations during testing and at release.
• Minimum specs are a Dual-Core CPU, 3+GB of Memory, dedicated Video card with 1GB+ VRAM, 64bit Windows OS, 5GB of disk space. These are not the final minimum specs as they could change in either direction before release.

Yes, NDA is still live... but I will risk everything :P to simply say this.  It's very, very good.  You can always buy in for more money at a different time, but this is by far the cheapest access has ever been.  Very early backers could get in for $50, but that phase was pretty recent.  To get into the current alpha it's typically $100 bucks.

This is actually a pretty good and pretty accurate breakdown of the game.  Worth your 10 minutes.

Gadgets, Gizmos, and Computers / Direct Comparison GTX590 vs GTX980
« on: November 17, 2014, 12:24:51 am »
So, I upgraded today, and to me, GPU numbers can be pretty interesting, especially when you have the opportunity to do direct, apples-to-apples comparisons.  I did some tests.  replaced the card... did more tests.  The results leave me pleased with the purchase, it was a worthy upgrade.  Just grabbed a couple things in my steam inventory with dedicated benchmarks.  Thought I'd share the results in case anyone else finds them interesting.

with GTX590
Hitman - 55.5  (min 6)
Uningine - 35 (min 7.2) score 893
Bioshock Inf - 44.5 (min 5.5)
RE6 - 6714
Metro:LL - 34 (min 17)

with GTX980
Hitman - 59.6 (min 46)
Uningine - 55 (min 20.7) score 1382
Bioshock Inf - 75 (min 10)
Metro:LL - 57 (min 25)
RE6 - 11768

System is a i7-3970 with 32gb of ram @ 1333mhz on a sabertooth x79... which sadly I don't think can take max advantage of PCI-E 3.0

ArcheAge / New Boards Created...
« on: November 06, 2014, 10:50:33 pm »
Please note that, contrary to our usual setup, all the child boards of ArcheAge are private, as organization and strats for pretty darn near everything in this game could be considered privileged and sensitive.  :)  So, feel free to post anything into those forums without fear of public exposure.

Minecraft / Direwolf20 - 1.7.10
« on: November 02, 2014, 11:15:21 pm »
At Dak's insistence/request, I've fired up a Direwolf20 1.7.10 server at Thranx.com.  The TPPI server is still running, now on port 25566, the direwolf20 pack is on default port.

Direwolf20 can be had via the feed-the-beast.com FTB Launcher.  There is one manual edition to the pack (per Dak's request).  Fastcraft.

Download this : http://files.player.to/fastcraft-1.9.jar

Stick it in the "mods" folder of your Direwolf20 install.

Server rules are same as always.  Whitelist and don't be a dick.  Used the same whitelist we've built for a while.

General Discussion / The Classiest In Home Lighting Design
« on: October 30, 2014, 10:33:25 pm »


Yea, that's right you can't even handle how awesome my new $7 light fixture is.  It just screams class so loud your ears ring... and when that tone finally dies down you realize you're still blinded by my brilliance.

:P

Needed some lights for my theater space until I really set things up... $7, took 1 hour to assemble (no joke) and I have 4 more to do.  Ghetto fab worth it.

General Discussion / WildStar Division Decommed
« on: October 18, 2014, 11:36:20 pm »
So long and thanks for all the ... fish?  No.  Were there fish in wildstar?

Thanks to all who put in the efforts to make a good go of it.  Sad to see it leave, but it is time.  The forum section will be moved to the other games and interests section, so for those of you still active and looking to organize, feel free to continue discussion or refer to old posts there.

ArcheAge / ArcheAge Becomes a Division
« on: October 05, 2014, 11:14:21 pm »

The day has come!  Oawa will lead the charge for our freshest Division.  The efforts at the squad level, participation levels and commitment from members has made clear that ArcheAge will be an active funspot for a good long while.  Oawa will continue to promote those efforts and will work with his upcoming officer core to broaden and strengthed the efforts already underway for our ArcheAge players.

Thanks to everyone for the input and feedback on this decision.  As time has progressed it's become and easier and easier call to make.  Our ArcheAge group is strong, and there are many great events ahead.

Guardians Lead The Way!!!

EDIT : PS, I forgot to add.  The shift from Squad to Division for a faction based game like this with open PvP causes Member vs Member issues for people who have been previously playing on Kyrios in the East.  There will be a post up addressing that in the near future. That's been one of the biggest concerns I (and Oawa, and booms) have heard from folks, and we will address it.

General Discussion / Changes for GW2
« on: September 16, 2014, 01:00:51 pm »

Population in GW2 has been low for sometime, but consistent, so the Division has been pluggin' along with high activity despite low numbers.  With a lack of great things on the horizon form the game itself a few members decided to move on to other things, one of those members being Lohre.  The band was kind of breaking up and Lohre recommended that with low hope for major updates in GW2 and declining intered, we retire the Division.  We're decomming Guild Wars 2 as a Division, but creating it anew as a Squad, with Baeldan leading that charge.

Lohre, your time on the council has been excellent.  I've appreciated your assistance, your guidance and your leadership.  Thank you for serving our GW2 players and our guild.  Your presence on the council will be missed, but I look forward to seeing you in-game.

A big thanks to Baeldan for wanting to grab the bull by the horns and continue the fun for GW2 as a Squad.  I've no doubt that wub wub Wednesdays will remain alive and well.  :)  I miss yak slappin'.
