You could do SC1 instead, if you're worried about the internet. You could also do Minecraft (theres tons of games to be had in a LAN environment), League of Legends (or some variation thereof), Unreal Tournament (any version), or pretty much any RTS (Age of Empires 2 and 3 are fantastic, as is Supreme Commander).

If I knew where you lived and was close by, I'd offer to come help you celebrate, but I don't think you're in SE Michigan...=/

Sounds like a ball. LAN's are always good times. Either overdose on caffeine or beer while you're at it.


I have a cracked copy of SupCom and it works well over LAN (cheap solution for cheap friends like mine), but you have to be sure to install the patches, then crack it in the order the crack (that the game comes with via TPB) specifies. I have since purchased the game (hard-copy) for $7.99 late last year.

I sorta wish I was able to join you in your fun...=,(

Posted on 09-26-11 08:32 PM, in Help! I need proof-readers! (Big Project!) Link
I've got a set of very old fan-fics (some are over 15yrs old!) that are really epic, but there's TONS of spelling/grammar/spacing issues. I'm trying to re-format the text to be suitable for print, but there's tons of extra spaces and line breaks. My plan is/was to get the whole set (~25 books, 3 'seasons'/blocks) printed as a set of 3 volumes, bound in softcover (maybe hardcover if I can get them cheap).

This is not an easy task that can be easily automated (at least I can't figure it out) so I need people to just go through it, line by line, word by word. Problem is that its well over 2,000 pages of text. I'd do it myself, but I mostly read on my iPhone and it won't let me edit text....=/ I'm looking into a tablet, but I don't know if/when I'll get one.

If I get at least 2 people willing to help, I'll post links to the files and tasks so we can get this done. Also, if anyone helps (and is interested), I'll send them a PDF copy when this is done.

In case anyone is wondering, I haven't asked the author (yet), but I'm sure he'd be keen with it. I am hoping to get it done without him knowing and sending it to him as a gift to encourage him to finish the series (season 4 was never started, but is still "coming soon").

Side note *** Wow, I just noticed the poll doesn't have the other 2 answers I put in...(they should be "maybe" and "Nope") ***

As for the subject, it starts as a really cheesy self-insertion to Sailor Moon, then kind of runs away with the idea, kind of leaving the sailor moon universe for something more awesome. Same characters, but whole different universe (it gets explained and makes sense, trust me).

Also, I feel obligated to say that even the author thinks the first 5-7 books (first half of first set) are super lame and horrible, but that was a different era in his life. He later went back and fixed some things to work with the second set. Once you get past the introductions and character development in books 1-6 (start of the "Tumbler Arc"), it turns into a more serious book.

I'll post the books to a Google Docs account and share them with you all so we can edit them together. If you want to take a look, the author's website is Studio Shinnyo and the books are located here

I'll be uploading the first set (authors notes, 10 books, and epilogue) today and I'll update either this post or make a new one when that is done. I'll also let you know how to access them for editing. =D

THANK YOU ALL VERY VERY MUCH!!!!

Didn't get a chance to upload anything yet and it's time for work... I'll see what I can do after work, but it won't be till after 10pm EDT...=

Got some stuff uploaded, and we're ready to roll! However, to keep it secure/safe, I don't want to just leave it publicly editable, so I'll need to ask for emails to send invites to. PM me with an address, and I'll share the project with you.

So far, I've got an instruction sheet uploaded as well as the intro to the first set and I'm working on the first book now. WHEE!! I'm excited! I can even edit on my iPhone!

Happy Halloween, Xeogamers! I was surprised there wasn't a thread for this already...=/

Anywho, I have the day off and I'm planning to get my place ready for the little rascals coming to my door asking for sweet candy goodness. I am excited for my first Halloween as a home owner. =D As for parties, I'm going to a post-halloween bash on the 12th (2 weeks after halloween is odd, I know) because I don't want to get in the way of the little children in costumes.

What are all your plans?

Unless you really know what you are doing or really want to take a very long amount of time to do it, I suggest getting some pre-made software to do this. I've tried to do this sort of thing before and quit after 120+ hours of work. It is super hard to make a quality site from scratch.

That said, I can help you if you still want to do it. However, site security is not my thing. I know PHP, HTML, CSS, and MySQL well enough to make a site that works, but not a safe one.

1and1.com and godaddy.com are good hosts to use. I'd recommend getting Dreamweaver if you build yourself and also get an FTP client (I use FileZilla) for other file uploads. Also, Photoshop and Illustrator are handy to have.

If making your own site, I'd also recommend either a virtual machine running a W/LAMP (Windows/Linux Apache MySQL PHP) server so you can test things before putting them live on your site. I run a WAMP server on a spare drive and use it for testing and dicking around with code before putting it on my site.

I'd be happy to provide help as needed. Just PM me or email me or post here.

Posted on 11-08-11 11:47 AM, in If you have a 4G phone you're wasting money Link
Every time I hear someone talking about getting a 4G phone, I tell them they got shafted by marketing. When I go into AT&T (my carrier), I say: "So, when are we getting real 4G? As in 100Mbps like the rest of the world?" and the techs all look confused. Makes me happy inside.

This slowness with wireless service is the same as our wired internet providers in America. We can't get fast internet like most of the smaller countries of the world because our infrastructure doesn't support it. And, providers won't spend money to upgrade to pure fiber. Copper cannot hold us for long...We need information at the speed of light! =D

Posted on 11-26-11 11:32 AM, in Fuck Black Friday (Especially Whoever Does Ads for Kohl's) Link
Unfortunately for me, I had to work on Black Friday. My store (OfficeMax) opened at 4am and I worked 2 shifts - 3am-11am and 4pm-10pm. Surprisingly, we weren't mobbed like we thought we would be, but we had much higher sales than last year. I also made $30+ in our in-store employee contest! =P

But, yeah...Don't shop walmart on Black Friday. Smaller stores and only after 10am for me...=D

Posted on 12-20-11 06:43 PM, in New American Civil War Possible (NDAA-2012) Link
Didn't know where to put this, but it's probably the one of the most important issues for the USA right now.

NDAA Amendment for Fiscal Year 2012 is scary as shit. No joke, we now live in Nazi USA. This act gives the government and military the right to indefinitely detain any person, regardless of citizenship, without cause, charge, trial, or due process. It is a blatant violation of our Constitutional rights.

Originally posted by Wikipedia
Though the White House[4] and Senate sponsors[5] maintain that the Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Terrorists (AUMF) already grants presidential authority for indefinite detention, the Act legislatively codifies[6] the President's authority to indefinitely detain terrorism suspects, including American citizens, without trial as defined in Title X, Subtitle D, SEC 1031(a-e) of the bill.[7] Because those who may be held indefinitely include U.S. citizens arrested on American soil, and because that detention may be by the military, the Act has received critical attention by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and media sources.


This video goes over the basics of what is happening in Congress related to this act: http://youtu.be/NW-e7z7S6VI

This is basically civil war...What side will you take? Totalitarian government or the Freedom of our United States Constitution? Obama violated his oath of office to defend the Constitution. Our military is sworn to protect not the government or it's wishes, but the people of the United States, our freedoms, and our Constitution.

It is time for all those who made a promise, and swore to defend the PEOPLE and the CONSTITUTION, to rise up to their responsibility and oath to defend against enemies, foreign and DOMESTIC.

/rant

PS: Check out my post over in the SOPA thread!

Edit: Reddit has a great thread and linked a great video about constitutional rights (2nd specifically): Okay, Obama, you're signing NDAA? Fine. Then I encourage Americans to buy guns.

In the comments (link) someone posted a link to a great video about the purpose of the second amendment: Link (http://youtu.be/bLRr02YrW6o)

Posted on 12-20-11 06:43 PM, in SOPA Link
I posted some things about this on my Facebook. Here they are:

"If SOPA and/or PROTECT-IP pass, the American government has failed to represent the citizens of the United States of America. If this happens, I sincerely hope the citizens of the internet fight back. I suggest people interested in seeing the internet after SOPA/PROTECT-IP check out the TOR network..."

"NOTE: If SOPA/PROTECT-IP pass, sites like Facebook, YouTube, Flikr, MySpace, Twitter, Reddit, etc will not be able to operate. The overhead cost to run a social website is enormous under these bills because the site owner must be liable and police ALL CONTENT!

SAVE SOCIAL MEDIA - STOP SOPA & PROTECT-IP!!!"

American Censorship Infographic
SOPA Opposition Petition (from Reddit)

I also posted the video that you have linked. Dangerous stuff...

If it were around $500, they would never keep them in stock. From what I hear, its supposed to be around $1000-$1500 (USD) - same as most UltraBooks. The Surface is basically a laptop without the keyboard...but you can add one of those if you want it. Its like the Asus Eee Transformer, but runs full featured Windows 8! I'm very excited for this sort of thing and hope it becomes mainstream and much cheaper in the near future. Also, don't bother getting the Surface with an ARM processor - it won't be like a laptop, it's just a shiny tablet. The Surface with the Intel Core i3/i5 will be worth having, though. If I had money, I'd buy one....but I have none...='(

Finally! Some people outside reddit that are happy about the landing! Everyone I talked to at my work that day said "oh, I don't care about space stuff" and I was like "WHAT?! ITS SO IMPORTANT AND COOL AND AWESOME AND BLARGH!!!" so yeah... =D

I watched the live twitter stream, but couldn't get out of bed to watch the livestream. Its amazing that such a complex system performed perfectly and flawlessly to land an SUV sized thing on another planet. Can't wait for humans to go beyond LEO again...Moon landings would be cool to see.

I remember the ACMLM "board wars" between Dark Underworld, Anime-US, and Masters of Darkness/Shadow's Edge/Xeogaming...Ah, good times. Xeogaming won that war, since we're the only ones left of the three...

Posted on 08-22-12 01:09 AM, in Joining the United States Air Force Link
So, I'm thinking about joining the USAF or US Air National Guard. I've already put in for taking the MEPS physical and ASVAB. After I get the results, I'll know for sure what jobs I can get into, which will tell me if I want to go ANG or USAF. I know someone here is military, but I don't remember who (sorry!).

As a side note, I am blogging my experience on my website (link), but I only have one (long) post so far. Once I get some additional questions answered, I'll be posting some more entries.

I'm also compiling information to show to family, friends, and other USAF hopefuls as a kind general knowledge base on that same blog site. If anyone has any great websites or general comments/knowledge, please let me know!

I don't post often on Xeogaming, but I do lurk at least 5 days/week. I still like knowing what goes on here on Xeogaming and I really enjoy the board. Its like a super secret club that I'm lucky enough to be a part of...=P

Why Air Force? I've always loved planes and I like the fact that the Air Force is run more like a business than anything else. They also take care of space and electronic warfare/monitoring, so that would be fun too.

Why not Navy? Even though I have a degree in Communications with a focus on Mass Media Communications, I can't stand boats. Also, I'm already married and would like kids in the next 2-3 years, so traveling all the time would not be good. Air Force sounds great for my wife and I.

I encourage you to read the first (and so far, only) post on my blog (link) for more details on the whys of me joining and where I stand. Its a long post, but it covers everything about my choice up to now. Another post there should be coming in the next day or two as I put up questions I've asked and been asked along with answers I've given and received.
