I have been granted a small amount of power on Sal's forum.
This power does not give me mod powers, powers over anyone, or anything of the sort.
It is a simple secret that has been with me sense I've been here.
It must be kept secret or this power may be lost.
I am one of VERY few who have this unique power.
If a mod were to find out, all hope is lost...
Although, maybe they know this power was given to me... to test me for the future of Sals?
Still I must remain silent.
The only chance of hope left for me is Sal himself.
Do you have modern warfare 2?
Do you have BOTH the map packs?
Please share what you think of them!
A few buddies and me play together a lot. We don't have the map packs, and we're all thinking about getting one pack. We're not getting both, just one. I want to hear what you think about the map packs so you can help me make a choice.
Over the past 6 months I've really been enjoying this game except for a few things.
1) Getting stuck on a team that sucks. I end up doing all the work trying my best to keep our team in the lead, but we still lose. I didn't think it would be possible to lose if you go 40-4, or 31-3, and have you're team be THAT BAD and still lose. It seems someone always goes 4-29 or something stupid. THIS IS A CALL TO ANYONE READING THIS BLOG THAT PLAYS THIS GAME AND IS GOOD! Add me please! My gamer tag is Orenekosama. Let's team up and pwn some noobs, yea? (I have over a 2.05 ratio now, been unconsciously getting this up from 1.74 a few months ago)
2) People who complain. Look, that weapon/attachment was added to the game. It may not require a lot of skill, but it definitely requires SOME for me to be able to use it BETTER THAN YOU. Also, what's up with people complaining about "hard scoping"? Seriously, someone has to explain to me how hard scoping is bad. I can only see it as another excuse as to "why I killed you and you didn't live". Steady Aim Pro is made for this exact purpose.
3) Lag issues and drop outs. For some reason, whenever I start to do REALLY good (starting the game off with 9 kills and getting a Pave Low before the other team has a collective score of 500) I "drop out" because my connection is lost, the game lobby is closed, or some other reason that makes it "OK" for me to be dropped out. I have a grand suspicion that it's Network Manipulation, because my friends are still playing in the game even after I leave. It never happens ONCE when I'm doing bad or not at par - ONLY when I'm owning the other team. Back in Halo 2, you're account was banned from the entire Xbox Live network for something like this.
As you can see, I have no problems with the game itself, just the players who stoop to low levels to try and insult me.
OK! Rant over.
Today, one of my child hood friends from Nippon (Japan) came over to visit. She'll be here just for the weekend.
It's so nice to have a great friend over after not seeing she for years, especially someone who is born and raised in the same city as you. Yay! No language problems!
I found out today that the half-duplex on my hub is causing major networking issues as I have 3 hosts online constantly sending packets.
With a hub, this is distasteful. The collision rate is very high. To think if I spent 30$ on a used switch all my problems would be solved.
OH! I also met Radia Perlman, the creator of spanning tree protocol! My teacher Rick knows her personally and had her come in and give a speech/lecture today in my networking class. Talk about awesome!
Today, the majority of the internet (I'm going to guess some where around 99.8%) uses IPv4 internet.
When broken down, IPv4 has 32 bits of information.
Example: Your IP is 220.127.116.11 (not your REAL ip, this is an example)
In Binary, this is represented as 11001000.01111101.00110010.00000001
That right there is 32 bits of information. Each number (either a one or zero) is a bit.
This means, that IPv4 can support a total of 232 end points (4,294,967,296; but for networking reasons [broadcast and network addressing] the number is more accurately around 4.22billion).
That means there can be a total of about 4.2 billion machines on the internet at once. Now, that sounds like a lot, but when you take into account all the machines that are on the internet at all times (cellphones, servers, etcetc) you'll realize that 4.2 billion unique public IP addresses is not nearly enough.
So, in order to fix this "IPv4 Exhaustion", private IP addresses were issued (you've probably seen these, 192.x.x.x, 10.x.x.x, 172.x.x.x). With billions of machines running at all times, we're nearing exhaustion of IPv4 (estimated by 2011-2012) because we can only have 4.2 billion public end points online at a time.
Now, with IPv6, we will have a total of 128 bits for our IP.
Shall we compare these two numbers?
232 = 4,294,967,296
2128 = 340,282,366,920,938,463,463,374,607,431,768,211,456
IPv6 is the long-term solution to our growing issue in IPv4.
IPv4 is still around today because of private IP's and NAT's. You can look those up or ask me about them if you want to know more.
Just finished watching Shuffle!
Has some nice 15+ stuff in there (boobies!) and its fair share of pantsu.
Lacking in uniqueness though. Another "more than one girl likes one guy" anime. But there's some crazy girls on it. A psycho-killer, Kaede, for example.
Every weekend I wake up to a pretty annoying sound.
Across the creek from my apartment, there's a large field. Well, a few large fields and a couple base ball fields.
I'm not used to the intensity behind soccer moms and angry dads wanting their kid to do good in soccer.
First thing I heard this morning to get me up:
"WHOOOOOOOOO YEAH GO JOHNNY! WE LOVE YOU" of course this was mixed in with various cheering and other words, but I could tell that the speaker of those words was the mother.
It sounds like there's an out door stadium every weekend. EVERY WEEKEND. This means if I decided to partaking in osake swallowing, I can't sleep at home without major headaches.
