Firstly I'm going to try to document forum updates and other work completed to the site here in my forum blog. This will keep all the forum related updates in one place.
I've completed several updates to the forums today. We're now running the latest IPS versions for Gallery and Blog. There should be several bug fixes and feature adjustments with these new versions; I don't get a list I'm afraid or I'd publish it.
I've also taken comments on the trading system on board and we now have a
Thank you mr Arnie sir, I promise I won't make a mess!
Welcome to the girliest blog on Arnies! Here I can write my own bits and pieces instead of taking up room in Ghost_Rider's. So, what's new....
Sunday's skirmish was fun, I had my pair of pistols for the first time and managed to blood my new one (Bella). I was runnning about a lot more in the first game whch was nice, as I tend to just sit in the tree fort and get pwned when the attacking team reach it. The only real down side of t
I've been off for the past two days because of illness. My head feels like it's going to explode, my nose will not stop pouring both snot and blood out at a steady rate, and my stomach feels like it's going to explode in a similar, yet larger, manner to my head.
Luckily we're nowhere near shortstaffed at my work, so it's not a big issue for people to take sickies. So... here I am.
Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go find a box of paracetemol and down the lot...
He actually went and did it. Cheers Arnie.
Welcome, one and all, to the adventures of Ghost and Hardcore. For the purposes of this blog, anything written in Italics is Hardcore, anything plain text is me.
Lets see, what I've been up to.....
1) Went skirmishing on Sunday. Took Hardcore's brother (Caboose on the forum) for his second skirmish and team evalutation, and also wanted to test out the woodland potential of my FWP rig.
(Authors note - FWP stands for Festooned With Pis
Thanks to Arn for giving me the opportunity to post some possibly-vaguely-interesting rambles in this fine blog o' mine
Those of you expecting emo poems will be sadly let down, as I won't post any.
Oh go on then, just this once...
And to stop you from passing out because of that, I've attached some small versions of some of the best photos from my recent holiday to the US (well, in August...).
Bigger ones can be found in my DevArt gallery HERE
My parents went on a nice two week holiday to Crete, and me being a lazy bugger, stayed home.
20 year old male + house - parents = fun!
Computer, xbox and minifridge all found new temporary homes in the livingroom upstairs, and the room itself got a huge makeover (by that, I mean move the sofa infront of the LCD TV...) For about a week, I survived on Rustlers microwavable food and the local chippy. Hardly health food, but what can I say... it was fun.
Then, I got myself a rather n
Well I had a chance to get some light reading done while I was on holiday and thought that a few of the highlights were worth a mention. Stephen Ambrose's books are a darn good read. Everyone's heard of Band of Brothers, so I'll skip that one (it's the book that the series came from).
Wild Blue is a book that follows the life of 741 Squadron during WW2. It's well documented and referenced. Like BoB it mainly follows the story of a singular crew as they get to grips with the war, the B24s an
Well, here's my new blog... expect lots of geardo related things and my general rantage.
First on my list... a big thanks to arn. This should prove iiiinteesting.
Secondly, airsoft armoury kick *albatross*. I ordered a VP charger and a speedloader from them just over two weeks ago, and there was still no sign of it. I phoned them today, and they said they'd look into it and contact me as soon as possible. Within 20 minutes, they phoned back and said the order got misplaced, and he'd se
I don't know how many people use Winamp, but if you use the latest version to listen to online music while you work as I do, the continual "browser" popup every time you change stations can be really annoying. I did a bit of hunting and found this natty little addon:
Does what it says on the tin "Kills all known Winamp popups.. dead". Just installed and I'm now free, freeee from those 'orrible popups.
I've also recently launche
Well after spending hours working on various web projects site updates and email replies I still don't feel like I've got anywhere, and it still feels like I've got mountains to get through. Ah well, there's always tomorrow.
The new mapping system is live, it's all driven off GoogleMaps which is a pretty nifty API to get used to. There's loads more I could do with it.. but lets face it, it doesn't have to do everything.
...right I wonder if I should get some sleep?
Southpark series 9 is back, with <a href="http://mrtwig.net/ep.php?e=908" target="_blank">episode eight of series 9</a>, <a href="http://mrtwig.net/ep.php?e=908" target="_blank">"Two Days Before The Day After Tomorrow"</a> airing last night, and blooming good it was too!
"A global warming state of emergency is declared in South Park. The world's largest beaver dam breaks and floods the adjacent town of Beaverton. As the victims wait for help to arri
Well my flight touched down last night, and I've not had much of a chance to clear up my email and get through all the updates I need to do, but I'm getting there. Two weeks in the sun... yummmeh.
Completely randomly, I thought I'd add a few links to a glorious horror that I've been reminded of after running some updates.
I'm currently being nagged every 10 minutes to reboot my machine by the update service. Oh how I hate XP most the time: ( http://www.codinghorror.com/blog/archi
I've just set the blog system to go live. For those wondering Blogs aren't just handed out to anyone and are instead given out to people that I think can write something that's of interest to other users. Think of the system more as a "contributing author" section rather than just a casual blog area. I've got a bit more work to do with everything yet, but it's pretty workable at the moment.
My blog is a bit of a testing ground for the new system at the moment, so apologies that it's a bit
Apparently the smoke created from the burning of laurel leaves is not pleasant and contains, amongst other things, cyanide compounds, more specifically cyanogenic glycoside (ref: http://www.kits...poisonous_plants.htm).
Hmm.. probably would have been nice to know that before I lit the bonfire after trimming the hedge out back.
Some of you here might not know the member Peter Stok he is a prowler rather than a poster and lurks in the dark reading and learning making his plans against us. ....sorry to much Wells
But he travels around alot with his work...Hong Kong, Singapore and the likes but while he is away he picks up alot of cool stuff.....being an avid Airsofter himself it all tends to gyro towards airsoft, he managed to pick up some very cool Motorola radios and headsets for a very very good price compared to
Well Im in a lecture talking about the exploration of America *James Cabot* and the blue light on my mobile phone flashes. God why duid i have to see it!
It could be 1 of 2 things..... my new lover has arrived at last and my good wife has signed for it.
One of my associates has decided to call me knowing full well i teach from 8am till 3pm........ All i can say is thank god for breaks as the suspense was killing.
I check the message and its my wife telling me i owe her
Well I have to say i'm rather excited and i have been tracking my new toy from Hong Kong to Japan like a 5 year old religiously opens the windows of an advent calender on the build up to Christmas....! (saying that I wonder if TM makes one?)
Well I spoke to Paul Chu over at Redwolf regarding the G&G GR300 (LR 300) and i arranged a good price for me.
Having placed my order sent cash I received both confirmation of payment and my delivery number....game on.
