    Did play Armoured Warfare a couple weeks ago. Woooow. I can't even drive let alone pull off snapshots. Even got killed in PvE. Past week or 2 have been gory, playing Sniper Elite 4.

    Roll Call!

    Wow. 11 years and 6 days. I missed an anniversary. I better have 2 drinks to make up for it.

    [PC] Atomic World of Tanks Thread

    Greetings Struggling to play anything these days. I have the intention and come upstairs to the PC but nothing seems to grab me. Though last week, I picked up Battlestar Galactica Deadlock and am having fun. Then on the weekend I was mucking around with a Tie Fighter mod in DCS World and that was a blast. Most of the time I just find Youtube and burn time away. Evelone's posts are tempting me to install WoT again. :) But by the time it installs, I'll probably lose the urge. I'm fearing I've outgrown computer games. It's kind of the only thing I do. So I'm lost. Oh, scotch. Yeah, I still do scotch ;P
  4. I can't help that I'm beautiful, but I can punish my parents every day for it.

  5. The Thor impersonator was Vanna. Didn't get a pic of Reaper for some reason. Chaos and Fenn looking after the cake. Not many photos were taken that I noticed. Everyone was just having a good time, didn't seem to need to take the pics. Do wish I'd taken more photos in hindsight, but nothing to stress about. And gifts! I don't know if anybody expected gifts but our fantabulous hosts did not disappoint. Drinking mugs, mouse that went to 3 people before it found somebody that wanted it, PC games, headphones, cake.... Actually, by the end of the night, you could just call everyone Virul. I think we all had a turn of wearing Virul's name tag by then.
  6. And there was cake Atomic checkered cake If your name was not on the canvas at the time of the photo, you were either late to the party or you're a Ben.
  7. You make no sense. Calm down. You're hysterical. Beer will fix it. I was expecting to have a good night. That far exceeded my expectations. Thank you everybody for being a cool person to hang out with. Very well done Chaos.

    Can you imagine how long you'll be waiting for a game to start outside of these hours?

    But if our connection is good, what do we blame our rubbish gaming abilities on?

    I was thinking that as I was writing the OP, but then I had fear of being labelled a 'back groper' and that's fun for nobody.

    Sharing my limited education. H:\>ping -n 2 Pinging with 32 bytes of data: Reply from bytes=32 time=11ms TTL=50 Reply from bytes=32 time=4ms TTL=50 Ping statistics for Packets: Sent = 2, Received = 2, Lost = 0 (0% loss), Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds: Minimum = 4ms, Maximum = 11ms, Average = 7ms Think of a submarine sending out a sonar 'ping' and then that sound wave hits something hard and shiny that bounces back the sound to the sub so the sub can identify that something is there based on that reply. That is literally what I always thought the origins were for the networking 'Ping' command. Made sense to me, you send out a targetted ping and if it's reachable, you get a reply. Apparently, according to this brain-numbing course I'm doing, 'PInG' is actually an acronym. "Packet Internet Groper". Awesome name from 20th century geeks. Turns out I've been 'groping' for years without realising it. Let's hope HR never find out or a quarter of I.T. everywhere will be having difficult conversations. Opy the Groper
  14. Was hoping to have my PC built by the next Upgrade Australia. Didn't think Sydney was getting one this year but just found out it is on in a month. I think I'm too busy with other things to get it done in time now. But I'm not sure if they are doing the whole bring in your own PC to test it's OC ability this time 'round anyway. So much on that weekend, but I think I'll make it anyway.
