Tarannus

Some of the time takes pictures, from Parts Unknown

My character bio is 20 pages long and 9,600 words. Last time I wrote something this big was to save employees threatened by budget cuts. Nov 19, 2017 at 9:44 PM

      I don't want to put the cart before the horse, but I think I have the most promising job news in nearly seven months.

      Polygons, pixels, and parables... I have to keep reminding myself that RP is but polygons, pixels, and parables.

      If I wanted to play on City 17, or some variant thereof, I would play Half Life 2 again. But it's a tired single-player game, so I don't.

        I always get stuck in servers where people just want to speedrun. And for some reason it's never really been stable for me - like a buggy younger brother of Sven Co-op.

      I don't like saying critical stuff, but I'm... not that enthused by the mapchange. Extremely dark and really quite tiny compared to C24.

        chill man I'm just kidding

        I was the one who suggested a tnb revolving style map system on more than one occasion lmao

        in saying that no one will be satisfied with whatever map's used, hence the meme

      Someone spent 9 months making this map, only to see it get replaced in less than 4. I really don't get it.

        We'll have to wait and see for the new one, I always loved WI in the background of everything but with c24 it just seemed so far off and split from the world, but it's the best faction I've seen for genuine rp both as a character and UU worker

        Well, I just downloaded it and I already am ambivalent. The flow is just wrong. Large open spaces are bottlenecked by hallways. The lighting in the apartments is damn near pitch black - actually the environmental lighting on the whole is pretty dark.

        I can see where UM and CWU will have spaces, but I don't see anywhere where WI will fit.

      Rest in peace, mighty CPU fan. May your destroyed bearings find rest. In other news, a 95W CPU will easily reach 90C just loading Windows.

        Just because your CPU TDP is 95W doesn't mean it's a 95W CPU, that's not how TDP works.

        Whether it's idling at 70W, or peaking at 130W, this much is clear. A backup CPU fan rated for 65W TDP is insufficient to cool this damn thing.

      What to do when you're unemployed? A - submit job applications. B - sand and varnish a 2,000 square foot deck.

        You and I both picked the third option sadly.

        C- complain about it on the internet and feel better about it until you realise you're broke

      There are some people whose views on life are so certain. I'd love to have that optimism, then maybe I'd be able to get some goddamn sleep.
