Government elections (95 comments)
Posted by Dird @ 16:02 CDT, 7 April 2015 - iMsg
So the UK elections are in 1 month's time & I'll be voting in my first ever elections (:o)

Since the UK doesn't use proportional voting like other countries I'm restricted to 2 choices because a vote for any other party in my area would be a waste.

As my choice is between labour & conservatives and based on this guide (I'll probably read the manifestos once released; I'll at least read updated news with summaries): http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/election/2015/manifesto-guide

My current vote =
But if it was a proportional vote then George Galloway has me in the palm of his hand

Who are you thinking of voting? Other countries holding elections in the next couple months feel free to jump in.

No indiegogo campaign but anybody have an unused GFX card they'd like to donate? ;o My hd6750 or something is dying...only needs to be good enough to play PQL CTF & watch Arrow

About 30 BSOD's in the last 3 days & pretty sure it's because of the card failing (Google says error code is graphics related & haven't updated any drivers recently).

Tried installing older drivers in place (some apparently working solutions) but no luck so I guess the true death is near.

Property shows! (29 comments)
Posted by Dird @ 04:02 CST, 16 January 2015 - iMsg
UKers will know of these (although maybe not how many VODs are up), mainly sharing with others who like property shows.

*Note* If you're abroad and 4od says "appears you're not in UK" click something like "believe this is a bug" or some shit then use the post code B4 7ET. No proxy to find exact messages.

Property Ladder: This is about wannabe property developers. They buy houses cheap then renovate/extend & try to sell at a profit. Since most are newbs they tend to make mistakes/overspend on their budgets.
http://www.channel4.com/programmes/property-l.../37032-015

Grand Designs: Castles, churches, barns, unique designs (like them German slot together buildings). High budget developments, sometimes to sell on but often to keep as their own house.
http://www.channel4.com/programmes/grand-desi.../54408-001

Location, Location, Location: People being helped to find a house for them to move to. They narrow down & show them 4-5 houses that match their criteria (budget, location, rooms etc).
http://www.channel4.com/programmes/location-l.../51943-001

Grand Designs Abroad: Same as Grand Designs but abroad I guess? Not seen it before. Imagine it's interesting to see different countries' styles.
http://www.channel4.com/programmes/grand-desi.../35938-001

Does USA have similar style shows?

We had around 60 people playing PQL-esque CTF regularly spread over 2 servers. People of differing skill levels trying to balance out teams where people actually knew one another's abilities despite them being public servers & not pickups. Now this has all been wiped out with one update.

I'm currently looking at the idea of recording. Not in game though. I was wondering what kind of set up is used by these casters.

Posted by Dird @ 07:09 CDT, 10 April 2013 - iMsg
As a subpar player I'm finding it difficult to find good matches in QuakeLive servers (either 1700 or 1050). Sadly, the faceit ladder doesn't seem to be active either.

What I want is an ability to search for players within a certain ELO range (1300-1400, or 1280-1350) that have played a game in the last week.

The first player in my profile list hasnt played for over 1 year as is the case for most around me. With the option to search only active players I could add them to my list then ask for 1v1s more easily.

Also: the ctf rank page o: but mainly just the 1v1 elo search~

What features do you want?

Dear Diary - returning home (44 comments)
Posted by Dird @ 07:36 CDT, 23 July 2012 - iMsg
So I've been in China for just over a year now as a J2EE developer & today I handed in my resignation. Main reason for quitting = the job is boring as fuck. Anyone who enjoys JSP is a homosexual. Besides being homo there was also very little work to do. In the 12 months I've been here there's been maybe 3 weeks where I've felt busy all week rather than having a small enhancement that takes 2 days or a couple of bug fixes. Online shopping/tweeting/playing on phones is common within my team throughout the day.

I had kept in touch with the company I worked for as an intern in the UK & they opened up a new junior DBA job up for me after I emailed my old boss & now I've accepted the role (I find learning about databases more interesting). The pay is standard for a fresh graduate (24k...although higher than what they normally pay for a junior there) but I expect to be promoted within a year & then its 30-35k/year. They'll also pay for me to have official training which is over 2k for 5 days.

The UK still sucks though so my plan is to return for 2-3 years and then go back to China (although not in this city and probably not near here). I tried to find a DBA job here but they all wanted 2+ years experience except for one (...they didnt even reply to my app so I guess they want fluent Mandarin).



Right now I'm building my list of places to visit on my trip :o It'll start with an overnight bus, on my last day of work, heading to the next province (same as a county).

Overall this last year has pretty much been a waste of time. Any savings I've earned during the year are lost when you factor in my flights to/from China. I'll also be taking a different job path so the J2EE experience isn't so relevent. A better choice would have been to start work there right out of university (my old boss asked me a couple months before graduating but at that point I had already accepted this job). Oh well =( start practicing nubs

Uni
---------------
As predicted I got a 1st \o/ average for the degree = 77%.
Game Development: Already knew I had 100% from coursework & labs since there's no exam.
Computer Animation: My coursework for this and easy labs meant I had 40/40 towards the final mark. Final mark was 93% so I guess I got 86-88 in the exam.
Testing and Reliable Software Engineering: Bunch of generic shit about agile/automated testing. Got 71%
Natural Language Processing and Applications: Despite me thinking that 'has' was an adverb rather than a verb I still managed to get 70% here :o was expecting 60~

Got 68% for individual project which is worth 25% of the degree...had no plans to aim for 70+ in this since I expected to only need 50% to get a 1st class overall due to the other 75% (2nd & final year).

My friend got some special prize though for doing the best :o they didn't mention anything about a prize at the start of the year otherwise I might have gone for it if it was anything good (still dunno what it is).

China
---------------
Still waiting on documents to be sent from there `-` apparently the 2nd (and final) document is being processed before they can mail them to me. Too lazy to learn mandarin in the mean time...I'm fucked =x As long as the docs arrive soon though its np because at least I'll get there & the £900~ for flight & medical checks won't have gone to waste.

For those interested this is what my ribs look like :o £107 well spent...

Russia mikes: We didn’t play Purgatory much, but I think this map is good. Dreadfull Place is ok, but for me it is worse then oldschool ones. DM20 is small and stupid one, though considering current trend with CPM style in QL, it just suits this game well.

Posted by Dird @ 05:52 CDT, 22 May 2011 - iMsg
So, as of yesterday, I have now finished uni \o/ all that is left is to wait for my final marks then graduate. This term I had:
Game Development: The coursework was pretty hardcore (14 days in total; 11 of them doing long hours) but overall I got 100% for my QL ripoff! The labs were also easy so my average for that module is 100% (no exam) \o/
Computer Animation: I found this pretty shit. Didn't like the interface of the software (Blender) and the tidousness of manipulating shapes. My coursework for this had to be something from the future; personally I marked my 'domesticated robot' at 60%~ but somehow he gave me 100%...completely weird, lowest I've heard so far is 90. Even if I had gotten 60% for this though it wouldn't have mattered since it's only worth 33% and I got max lab marks (7%) and the exam (60%) was so easy (85+); it's the 2nd easiest exam I've had since being at uni.
Testing and Reliable Software Engineering: Bunch of generic shit about agile/automated testing. Broken into 2 halves the one was pretty easy while the other is just about how much you can BS pretty much. Should be a low first.
Natural Language Processing and Applications: Easily the worst exam this term. How computers interpret language & translate between them~ I think the saddest part of this module is that I realised how bad my English was. Just Googled and found out that 'has' is a verb rather than an adverb :<<< marks lost there.

Only other thing I had this term was to hand in my final year project. It was a simple module database with PHP and bits of JS~ took an easy project, was lazy with it, hoping for a 2:1 (60-69%). I coded over one bit of useful functionality which could have maybe pushed it above 70% if I didn't include those extra 5 lines~ :<<< 100 page report along with it too `-`.

Cruising to the top grade although I doubt I'm close to the top scorer (some Indian machine).

Premier League football! Who do you think/want to be relegated? I'm hoping Fergie tells his players to lose so Blackpool stay up. Ideally Wigan would win and Wolves & Brum would lose then they both get relegated but I'd settle for one of them with Wigan.

Quake 3 maps with no teles/jumppads (43 comments)
Posted by Dird @ 09:49 CDT, 22 March 2011 - iMsg
So I'm making a QL/3 rip off for uni and need a map to use...I've imported dm3 (http://img826.imageshack.us/img826/59/dm3d.png) but the doors are too small when i jump & if i scale it up the roof comes off...

any other q3 maps with no jumppads/teles besides dm3 & dm1?

edit: RA3/CPM maps...tried all the standard maps

edit: other small maps (tdm/ctf) should be ok if no jumppads/teles...the dm maps have pretty narrow/small doorways

Final year exams $$ -- results :o (117 comments)
Posted by Dird @ 06:04 CST, 12 January 2011 - iMsg
shits a bitch =/ 3 exams in 3 days then the final one on monday :o
off to first now (Y) preparation = playing QL last night xD

Exam 1: Software Project Management (100% exam) - killed it. marked myself at 88%
Exam 2: Enterprise Computing Strategies (100% exam) - not so great but disappointed if < 75%
Exam 3: Information Security (80% exam 20% coursework) - High 70s minimum (Y)
Exam 4: Interaction Design (75% exam 25% coursework) - Disgusting exam. Everyone I spoke to said it should have been 3 hours instead of 2...that shit better be high 60s minimum.

Got 100% for the joke IS coursework...85% for ID coursework but sadly had to remove the asian girls section :(

Update: Everyones raging about the last exam & emailing the course director to complain...apparently it can lead to a 5-8% increase if enough do it? :O

Update 2: Results are out! The complaint for interaction design exam got rejected since marks were up on last years~
Software Project Management: 76% (exam + overall)
Enterprise Computing Strategies: 81% (exam + overall)
Information Security: 71% exam (76.8% overall)
Interaction Design: 87% exam (86.5% overall)

80% average \o/ was hoping for 75 avg~ bit random that the 2 i thought i did best on were my 2 worst =/

Duke Nukem arrives (136 comments)
Posted by Dird @ 23:52 CDT, 3 September 2010 - iMsg
Take Two Interactive has recently announced that they have secretly been working on Duke Nukem Forever and that it will be released next year on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.

Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K (Take Two subsidiary) states that:
After a hiatus from the video game world, Duke Nukem is back and better than ever. The return of the King from the glory days of shooters will satisfy our patient, die-hard fans, as well as a new generation of bubble gum-chewing, flat top and shades-wearing bad-asses. Make no mistake about it - Duke Nukem Forever is a testament to the era of when shooters were bodacious and fun.

A demo of the game is currently playable at the Penny Arcade Expo (2K Booth). Check out their website for the full announcement.

How Success Killed Duke Nukem (83 comments)
Posted by Dird @ 07:05 CST, 3 January 2010 - iMsg
With 3D Realms going bust and subsequently finding themselves in court against publishers Take Two due to Duke Nukem Forever living up to its name; the people at Wired have written an article detailing what went wrong with the developers at 3D.
By the end of 1999, after blowing several publicly proclaimed release dates, Duke Nukem Forever was nowhere near completion. Half the weapons were still just sketches, and when a new version of the Unreal engine was announced — one designed for live, multiplayer online battles — once again Broussard opted to upgrade.

The full article can be read on their website.
