Absolution Regional Message Board
Thank you everyone. Feels good to be here.
Dunno about Red Bulls but about a year ago I drank 2 23oz Monsters and I hallucinated and ended up in the hospital. They held me till it wore off - gave me an IV of I think saline, made me drink a buttload of water and warned me to not do that again. So I haven't. It totally sucked.
In the case of Red Bulls...are we talking consumption or just physically hurting someone? If it's the latter, all you really need is one. If you really care to hurt someone with it and you can be inventive with what you do, one should do the trick.
As far as consumption? Hm...I've had a lot of Red Bull and Vodka in the past and I am still standing but I have heard about gaming addicts who drank nothing but Red Bull and paid the price for it.
All this talk of Red Bulls make me miss chugging down all those Jagerbombs in Poland
Yes indeed, welcome to Absolution Shiraba! Effulgnce does have some interesting shoes. I'll testify to that.
Sheika, studies suggest that British badgers are terrified of CBC programming. What am I to make of this Doc?
Do you lot realise the closest facsimile to a regional anthem we've managed over the past ten years is Welcome To The Jungle by Guns'n'Roses? I did manage to use it once in a video but as far as regional anthems go, are we cool with that? Gundumz pretty much proclaimed it our anthem three times in 2009 and we all just kind of never questioned it. Difficult task actually, which is possibly why we never questioned it. That, and the fact we had no alternatives.
How much of a difference is there between a modern mile and a Roman mile anyway?
Coffee at least does not come with a Surgeon General warning. It probably should though.
"Welcome to the Jungle, we've got fun and games..." well, it's not entirely inaccurate really. I do have some mixed memories about it. I like the song, and one of the guys I had served with always loved blaring it in his conex whenever he had the chance.
In regards to badgers being terrified of CBC programming...hm I dunno. I've never really found it all that disturbing whenever I've seen it, then again I am not a badger.
Onto the matter of Roman miles versus modern miles; a mile, as we know it is 5,280 feet, roughly 1.6 kilometers whereas a Roman mile was 5,000 feet or 1.481 kilometers.
Interesting fact, although hardy relevant to anybody, while everybody I know uses feet I use metric when giving rough estimates of distance. For example, when driving and keeping an eye on the rear view and side mirrors intermittently I'll let any inquiring passengers know how far behind a vehicle is behind us; eg. we have a pick up approaching, currently 100 meters back. It drives people nuts, but they let me be for the most part. If we go shooting, well that's a no brainer. Metric distance is all I have ever used when shooting.
The regional domain for nstrackers.net has been renewed for another year. I'll be moving to another host this Autumn and using the current host as storage soon enough. It will be at that time the title NSTracker will official be retired. Why the move? The current host sucks rather large Donkey balls. I've had to manually update the site myself daily for nearly a year now because their server run functions don't like to run PERL scripts. After a few conversations with the host staff I came to the conclusion that they don't really understand what they are doing. I'm in no rush. Shopping takes time. As long as it's no where near free service hosting it's a plus.
I've now taken the past six weeks off from coding and feel more like myself. If anyone asked me what my feelings are concerning the development of this site my only response would be that the cost was high. As Mexican Liberation pointed out weeks ago, it's Summer. It's a time for relaxation and good times.
This years start date may be pushed into December depending on my schedule. I'm considering a move back to Western Canada this October. Why October? I wish to spend this Summer with my Brothers.
All things considered, last Winter's production was substantial. The Spring clean-up and redevelopment of the overall site template really came together, though not complete. Still, out of the five major components to be added, three are now in place with a plethora of provocative items staged for release. My goal is April 2017 at which time Absolution will have something substantial to offer players and my recruiting and promotional campaigns will begin.
I'd like to thank every one of you for your understanding, patience and tolerance. Just like the reporter who asked Brushy Bill Roberts if he had any scars to prove he was Billy the Kid, we too will be able to answer yes Sir, we have our scars. This didn't come easily nor lightly. Being pragmatic, I'll take the loss to earn the gain. Onwards and upwards folks. Enjoy the time with family and friends.
