Re: Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen

Put my $250 in for it. I am looking forward to seeing how it turns out.

I have been having a lot of fun with it. Nice to see some old Brell names on it finally.

I play occasionally. Feel free to hit me up as Thulghor if you want. I've been like, level 42ish forever though.

Elder Scrolls Online

Just wondering if anyone has tried ESO out, or had anything good to say about it? I was thinking of giving it a shot sometime in the reasonable future, but I have heard only mixed things about it. I tried the beta a while back, but didn't put that much time in it due to RL obligations.

Re: Everquest Next Landmark, due 2014

This actually looks interesting. I may have to give it a shot at some point, although I just don't really have the time anymore for MMO's. Damn adult stuff getting in the way of fun.

Re: Connecting to P99 from China

She's currently using Skydur (http://www.skydurvpn.com/) to access Facebook when she can. I'm tempted on seeing if the paid for version will actually work for this problem. Not sure though. Would be a minimal amount of fuss on her part.

Re: Connecting to P99 from China

Many of these VPN sites look like identify theft/credit card fraud waiting to happen. A lot of them, like that Ultra VPN site, apparently don't work with China. But I'll dig around and see what I can find. I can't believe that I have to go to this kind of crazyness just to get my girlfriend to be ab...

Re: Connecting to P99 from China

I got the remote desktop connection thing set up, and she can log into a computer at my place. Unfortunately, it's fairly laggy. Not sure what I can do to improve that, or if there is a better route to go for gaming. I currently have it plugged in via a direct ethernet connection, but I was consider...

Connecting to P99 from China

Figured I'd ask this question here since there are a lot of tech-savvy folks here and I'm running out of ideas. So I've been messing with the whole "Project 1999 Classic EQ" thing lately, and it's been fun. I even convinced my girlfriend to give it a try while she is off teaching China. I figured th...

Re: Wikileaks etc.

I'm really curious as to what the insurance files contains. Whatever has the entire intelligence and military leadership up in arms over must be really juicy. Probably a lot less to do with military movements civilian casualties and a lot to do with torture, secret prisons, and other whacky deals. A...

Re: EQ2 to offer f2p model

They sure do use a lot of double-speak in the FAQ. Reading between the lines makes their free to play service sound like it's going to be more stripped down than the DDO model is.

Re: Project 1999

Yeah, the favoritism is kinda annoying. Heard they're starting to crack down on shit now though, since their server population is starting to become increasingly aware of it. Haven't seen anyone recently banned for offering suggestions or whatnot. Don't know what to tell you there. This whole "Need ...

Re: Project 1999

I dunno, I've been playing it for a week or so, and I've had a blast. Yeah, there is some bullshit, but it's basically the same bullshit I had to deal with in regular EQ. As far as shit being a little buggy, it's not too bad. I've suggested a few things, and I've either gotten a "we're working on th...

Latest ACTA Revision

This latest version looks like it has gotten rid of the "Three Strikes" provision, but there are still a lot of scary bits in it. If there is this much at risk for ISPs, the price of internet services are going to skyrocket if this passes. http://www.laquadrature.net/files/ACTA_consolidatedtext_EUre...

Re: Have debt? Go to jail.

Nice. Well, that has restored my faith in humanity a little bit. I'm glad that there is some legal recourse for debtors. I know the lawyers around here won't touch you if you have any debt issues.

Re: "Virtually Every Republican" is a Moron

Some of those statistics in the discussion thread of the Ezra Klein article are pretty staggering if true. The tax rate disparity between the top 1% and the bottom of the tax heap, explains a lot of economic issues we are having...provided that it is true. Especially since a lot of that untaxed inco...
