Let's hope this works out!

There is currently a Giant Hole out there for MMO'ers. We are lacking a much needed AAA MMO and there are a few in development that MIGHT fill the gap but until then we should look on the bright side and take advantage of some of the other things going on!
Age of Conan has placed an Event Server up that will remain until mid May. They also have reduced Content pack Prices by 75% and dropped Patron Costs.
I have been playing the Event Server and it is packed! Not just the initial wave when it opened a few weeks ago but ALL LEVELS and ALL ZONES. To be honest it can be a pain in the but questing with all the players but a nice change and AoC is a GREAT game!
SWTOR has just announced that IF you were a Patron at any time and log in before Feb 28th that you will get 1 month Patron for Free!
SWTOR is another GREAT game. I highly recommend it if for nothing else the Story line ROCKS!
Right now everyone knows there is a big hole that needs to be filled and some of our past AAA MMO's are taking advantage of it and that means great gaming for us!
At work we've got good experience with Google's recaptcha.
SMF now comes with reCAPTCHA and I have it running. I have sneaking suspicion that the reason things have all of a sudden gottten so bad is that damn Anti Spam by CleanTalk (No CAPTCHA) module that I tried. When the trial ran out and I opted not to pay them my settings got jacked up and SPAM got 100x worse.
Had it working well for a brief time with an addon I grabbed from SMF but I did not realize that it was a BRIEF trial and they wanted money after that. Well of course I declined but it left us with jacked up anti-spam measures.
I have gotten CAPTCHA running again and added security questions to help Bot proof the Forum.
From what I have been reading, Bots can now work through math problems and it recommended that you have at least 5 questions and the registration picks one at random. I made up about a dozen! They are not complex for humans and are similar to this:
List all of the Upper Case letters used in Death Before Dishonor. The answer would be DBD
Cross your fingers!
I jumped in for a bit today and all I can say is WOW! This Pre Alpha has come a long way and the basics of the game are really shaping up! I can see why everyone is talking about it and places like mmorpg.com are saying that it is a AAA MMO that will be setting the standard for PvP
Just have to manually go into Norton \Settings\Anti Virus\Scans and Risks\ Items to exclude from Scans & Items to Exclude from Auto Protect, SONAR and Download Inteligence Detection
Configure and add the exact location of file such as C:\Program Files (x86)\RYL2NORTHPOLE\Data\client.exe
Make it a desk fan
Oh I see! That's a good suggestion
no as the title states .... Case Fan
I recently ordered the wrong case fan as a replacement for an Old Soyo Case that I really like. I was a bit off though on the size I needed even though I checked guide online and according to it I had a 70mm fan. It is actually a 80mm I believe.
.....anyhow I contacted Amazon to return it and they told me they would send the money back but I could keep the 70mm fan as it was not cost effective to ship it back and restock it
So now I am the proud owner of a 3 pin, 70mm fan with nowhere to put it. LOL I hate to throw the darn thing away!
If anyone can use it let me know, free to pick up or just shipping.
After staying away from p2p since the last big crackdown I decided to bite the bullet and get a vpn!
Nord offers a 3 day trial and after that is over they offer you a Special to get it for $40 for one year! That is a GREAT deal but not as good as there 2 year deal they are running for $2.75 per month!
They seem to be pretty good and have Specialty Servers to provide you with supposedly better speeds. I am just not really impressed with the speeds I get though. I use it for Torrent Sites in order to get anything quickly I can only run one download at a time in spite of my Internet package which is very fast up and down.
Don't get me wrong, I am very happy that they are so secure, running your encrypted traffic through two separate servers to ensure that it is safe but I was wondering if they are all that slow or is that just the price to pay to be secure.
Funcom has started moving their Forums to one site and be keeping them in house! This will be a HUGE change for Conan Exiles and SWL!
The AOC Forum is live and the Old forum will be closed and Archived in a few days. SWL and CE to follow!
Just watched the highlights. Awesome win
It was a nail biter down to the final second!
That is what makes a GREAT game!

As per the last Dev Stream there is going to be a HUGE update coming to the Testlive in Mid February, just a week or two away!
This update will be moved to live version after all of the bugs are worked out. This time can be just a few days or as long as several weeks.
I just wanted to give a heads up that since this update will basically change the entire way the game is played I will be removing all mods with the possible exception of Pippi from our server so that we can get a clean experience of what has been added. The reason Pippi will remain is that it functions for players only as an enhancement to the limited chat system and on the Admin side it also acts as a very nice Admin tool.
I am really looking forward to this update and it should be the last big one before the game is officially released!
