It was great fun but UO was so much more.

Man, I still remember tieing up my phone line for a week to download the beta client.

I created a druid on Fennin Ro and restarted the game from scratch.  I can't seem to get back into it though  icon_cry

Good to know Kelethin, Qeynos and Blackburrow hasn't changed.  Those really brings back memories.

I created a character in Fenin Ro last night, name's Thoke.

When I log in, there was a little window that said that my account had over 400k failed login attempts since I closed it.  Holy cow!!

I didn't even get past the tutorial, was busy trying to get rid of spyware on my gf's pc.

I will start the client download tonight and hopefully start playing by tomorrow night again.  It's been a long time!

I'm in although I may have to take it slow.

Last time I did some push ups (with an exercise ball to elevate my feet) I put a rib out of alignment and screwed up my shoulder.  I have no idea how that happened, lol.  Went to the chiropractor and got the rib and shoulder fixed but I think I may still need to go back to work on the shoulders some more.

So we'll see how I do.

So it's a game game, then?

Yeah, the guy created it in 30 days for a contest.  He's still supporting it though.

Found the website for it and he's there answering people's questions too.
695  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / MMORPG Tycoon on: June 17, 2008, 10:18:55 PM
Found this yesterday, it's a free game and the premise is just like what the title says, you're managing an MMORPG.

You have to create zones, place towns, roads, spawn points, adjust monster difficulty, pricing, etc.  All these while trying to keep your subscribers happy and make money at it.

Try it out, it's pretty interesting to kill time with.

They have some decent products, my best friend's mom swears by their products.

Their cleaning products are decent and works and supposedly all natural.

That said, yes, they are a pyramid scheme, but at least they have decent stuff.

Sorry to hear that you got laid off but that does sound like a decent severance package.

I agree with everyone when they said the commute is horrendous.  I did a 1.5-2 hours commute for a year and I was glad when I switched jobs.

Good luck with the job search!

Anyone watching this series?  I'm currently on the laptop in the TV room watching it.  I love it!!  I'm a big space program buff, so this series is a treat for me.  Even thinking about purchasing the dvd set (wishing I have Blu-ray though).

705  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: BSODs on: June 07, 2008, 05:09:10 PM
I'm running an AGP x1950pro, it's about time I overhaul my system.  I also have been using the high settings and just playing around with the advanced settings by turning off shadows, using shader 2.0, etc.  Read that in another post a while back.

The memory usage is probably what causes my BSODs as I only have 2gb memory on this system.

I've been playing CoD4, PotBS, Sins of a Solar Empire and the Witcher lately without any BSODs.  I'll try AoC again this weekend.

706  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: BSODs on: June 07, 2008, 06:39:30 AM
No overclock on this one, haven't done it since I built it.

Video card is fairly new, a few months old.

Same with power supply, it's an Antec SmartPower 500w, less than a year old.

Ran the memtest overnight and then some, I think it ran almost 24 hours since I left it running while I went work.

I haven't played Conan in about a week and no BSOD since then.  I've played other games and my system is back to being stable.  I'm still thinking that there's something with Age of Conan that just doesn't agree with my system, could be that memory leak.

I'm a certified open water diver with PADI but I haven't gone in a few years so I will definitely need a refresher course.

It does get expensive, but it was a lot of fun.

$15 to fill up my Ninja 250.  Gets about 57-60mpg and goes 100+mph tops.

A couple of months ago, it only cost me about $11 to fill the thing up.  icon_frown
711  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: BSODs on: June 02, 2008, 05:21:09 PM
Yup, drivers are all fully updated.

It's funny though, I didn't play Age of Conan at all this weekend due to work stuff and my pc haven't had the BSOD once.  I'm thinking it's tied to the game somehow.
712  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: BSODs on: June 02, 2008, 12:40:49 AM
It boots fine in regular mode, it just would give me BSODs seemingly at random.  I can go a few days without BSODs but sometimes I can get them twice a day.  The surefire way of getting one is to play Age of Conan for a while and I will usually get them after I quit the game and try to start firefox.
713  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / BSODs on: June 01, 2008, 05:09:32 AM
Lately I've been getting an increasing amount of BSOD, mostly PAGE_FAULT_IN_NON_PAGED_AREA, and a couple of MEMORY_MANAGEMENT.

I ran memtest86 through the bootable cd and it cleared the memory.

I usually get the Page fault error after I play Age of Conan and try to start firefox, but sometimes it would BSOD when I'm not doing anything.

Any other ideas on what may be causing this?

717  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: $429 base gaming rig (add video card) at Circuit City on: May 26, 2008, 06:58:48 PM
Hmm, I may have to wait on the Kindle and purchase this instead with the tax rebate check.

I have an Antec SmartPower 500 on my old machine that I can transfer over, so I'll just need to get me an 8800 card.

Thanks for bringing this to my attention!
718  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: $429 base gaming rig (add video card) at Circuit City on: May 25, 2008, 09:44:17 PM
