Technology & Hardware / Domains and hosting
« on: June 29, 2015, 05:40:10 pm »
  • Where should I buy my domain?
  • Where should I buy my hosting?
  • How thorough should I be with ensuring that I'm not infringing trademarks and/or copyright when I select a domain?
  • If someone already has a domain I want, but is sitting on it like a little bitch, what can I do? like this bullshit: is that whole legit?

Please ask more questions if more specific questions will help

Thanks people!

Bug Reports & Feedback / Image size breaks things for bad
« on: October 25, 2014, 01:26:26 pm »
Trying to post a 6.56MB jpg picture to this thread but it seems to break something:

Also, when I click "add attachments" the actual button and most of the related text is being pushed out of the frame/table/text area so I can't read most of it.

I assume I'm hitting some sort of filesize limit, maybe a notification/handling would be better than completely losing the post?

Hey guys,

Our class have to present a poster in the next few days for our final year projects.

Mine is 594mmx841mm, res is 7016x9933 (300dpi)

I'm getting mine printed tomorrow morning (I'll pop it up for C&C here when it's nearly done).

One of my class mates has been told the file has to be PDF and less than 10MB, is this even possible? is it possible while maintaining even a shread of quality?

How else might I package this thing up to make it smexy?

General Chat / What are people hoping to get some of
« on: June 15, 2014, 04:55:28 pm »
Slightly related to Blackhearts thread, as E3 has just finished, still have GDC to go, and then quakecon next month.

So far my list:

Far Cry 4 (fuck im a sucker)
Grid Autosport (it's not even 2 weeks away!)
Project Cars
Star Citizen
Elite: Dangerous

In order of interest over knowledge.

I really enjoyed FC3, so immersive, and raiding the bases only became dull near the last 2 or 3 once I had the formula worked out. I'm going to smash some racing games, I've been playing pcars so know what it's capable of. I didn't really get into GTA4 (although I got it on steam for $6 the other day I'll have a crack once I do the graphics mods). Battlefront looks awesome, Doom sounds interesting.

Those few scifi games are sounding excellent, but still quite far off I think, so I'm not too excited for them yet, but it's mounting!

Battlefield / Battlefield Hardline Beta

Server is getting hammered, took a few goes for my registration to get through.

Waiting on an email to see if I get beta access.

General Chat / Games for him and her.
« on: January 31, 2014, 07:40:23 pm »
So I have my computer plugged into my TV.

I'm contemplating getting two wireless xbox 360 controllers (for the range, and she hates wires)

What are some good, colourful, fun, interesting 2 player games on steam? something we can chill on the couch and play in short bursts?

General Chat / Valve and it's new 'wares
« on: October 05, 2013, 05:03:55 pm »
I just realised we haven't had discussion on here about it!

So valve is launching into the domain of the console (the living room) with a console that is made of PC other words a PC....

The other week Valve announced these 3 things:

SteamOS - Linux based gaming OS

Steam Machines - Modular console like PC for the living room

Steam Controller - It's a controller.

I'm personally not too interested in the machine or the controller unless steam games became more lounge social. I enjoy playing little big planet etc in a group but I never liked playing multiplayer COD on ps3.

I am however really interested in steam OS, I've always wondered if someone could hack windows into being less hungry in the background and I guess the answer is "it's easier to just use linux" which is saying a lot. Valve are going to have to convince developers to move away from directx into whatever they're developing for linux, openGL or something?

I think what valve are doing is really smart, especially if they can get on board with the PS4/XBONE developers. If they can structure steamOS so it's as good or better than a console to develop for then we might just see AAA games landing really nicely back into the PC market.

Also it's all wonderfully open and free, valve are releasing the CAD files for their first prototype machine so we can hack it how we want. the controller is designed to be hacked too.

This all seems familiar to that Ouya thing that popped up and seems to have died down a bit...

What do you guys reckon? Think valve have moved in the right direction? think it will work? is this the new generation of PC master race?

No Bass drops, no wub wub, excellent.

People around the world are moaning about how the new daft punk album has no bass drops and wub wubs.

I'm glad, shitty cliche bass drops and shitty wub wubs, who needs it anyway?

Favourite tracks:

Giorgio of Morodor
Doin' it Right
Contact   <---- epic crescendo

I'm a bit over Get Lucky to be honest.....but I have listened to it pretty much solid for the last week?

Dat drum beat.

I have an A0 sized poster (I did 150 ppi cause they said they don't care about res) to submit for uni.

They want it in pdf format less than 6MB

What settings should I make/do?

I have no idea what it's being printed on.

Console / Playstation 4
« on: February 21, 2013, 05:57:02 pm »
I dont want one.

They called it Playstation 4.

And they talk about ingenuity, thinking outside of the box and the experience and all these buzz words.

And they called it playstation 4.

That tells me one thing; this video is entirely bullshit and it'll be as crappy as every other playstation after about 3 months.


TV, Movies & Music / Top Gear Season 19
« on: February 05, 2013, 10:08:36 pm »
Being that Season 19 hasn't aired in New Zealand yet all of the following opinions I give are based on rumor from what my friend in the UK has told me happens in each episode.

Ep 1 was pretty awesome, I always watch the "this season on top gear" closely in case they leave something out, which they have done in the past.

Ep 2 was a bit dull, 3 poms driving some okish cars around a bit of america for absolutely no reason, and they do a bunch of fairly boring challenges. I kinda feel they were missing some imagination in this one.

Stoked with the a new season though! AT LAST! I even missed the intro.

Also I was torn whether to post this in Planes, trains and automobiles, or in TV....

Planes, Trains & Automobiles / The V8 Coffee Table
« on: January 29, 2013, 09:40:49 pm »
So I've wanted one of these for longer than top gear has had their V12 (I'm a hipster petrol head ok?)

I bidded on a few blocks over the years, bidded on a few blocks with a few parts, I always wanted one with at least the block, crank, conrods and pistons, also it has to be an ally engine, I don;t want an ugly steel one, one night my old flatmate was yarning while drunk about how he had this rover V8 sitting in a gorse bush, later I swapped him a wrx block for it (cost me $60) sooooo $60 for my V8 and I was happy.

He went and picked it up and I left it in the front lawn under a bush in my front yard for a few months.

I finally started tearing it down tonight...

General Chat / Solomon Islanders and Dolphins
« on: January 24, 2013, 04:11:09 pm »
As we know, Whales are awesome and dolphins closely related, the motorcycle form of a whale, are awesome also.

So why the fuck do we need to pay a bunch of savages to stop killing them?

Do they not understand that if they kill off the dolphins, it'll be worse than not having 1.7 million NZD because you wont have anything and you will die.

I think we need to start nuclear testing in the Solomons.

Fuck Gareth Morgan and his Ailurophobia


This is an awesome event, went to qualifying today and it's hotting up to be an awesome series.

First round is tomorrow at Ruapuna (6th of Jan) $15 for adults, under 15's a free

Seriously worth checking out, you really want to be there from 10:30 - 11ish

Technology & Hardware / If I know C and Python
« on: November 08, 2012, 01:48:44 pm »
And matlab as a programming language....

but if I "know" C and python, will I pick up VBA pretty easily? (this is the key question)

What about C# or C++?

What about java?

I say "know" 'cause compared to 6 months ago I'm a fucking pro with C, but I gather I'm just scratching the surface.

C was half OS based and half micro controller based.

I guess the real question is, what did you start with and what have you found difficult to move to? and have other people found that?

Technology & Hardware / Ouya - Android based console
« on: July 15, 2012, 03:14:00 pm »
I figured this would happen sooner or later, but I didn't imagine it would be this good! it's so open and honest and good!

What a fantastic concept, and it's actually going ahead!

I remember Bell saying there's 5% profit in a console game and that android games were somewhere around 30%, wonder where this will sit? considering the majority of android games are free or cheap already I'd say closer to the 30%.

To be honest I cant see EA getting too involved with something like this, I have only 1 EA game on my tablet and it's tetris and it's pretty terrible.

but my favourites like solitaire, death rally, tank hero, world of goo, fruit ninja and dark meadow (check out the shaders in this game, runs unreal warfare engine) are all free! the rest of the 20 something games on my tablet are either free or cheap.

I'm thinking of getting some more glossy games, most for less than $5, they re made final fantasy III for DS a few years ago and have released it on android for $20 (fucking expensive!)

I wonder if this will be the game changer they're slating it as?
