Groundhog Day

is today...

Groundhog Day or Groundhog's Day is a holiday celebrated in New York and Pennsylvania on February 2. In weather lore, if a groundhog, also known as a woodchuck, marmot or ground squirrel, emerges from its burrow on this day and fails to see its shadow because the weather is cloudy, winter will soon end. If the groundhog sees its shadow, it will return into its burrow, and the winter will continue for 6 more weeks.

Technology & Hardware / Re: Bandwidth Question
« on: May 27, 2015, 09:43:48 am »
My understanding of how things work in the urban areas is as follows:

You have multiple high capacity feed pipes coming in to NZ (eg. Southern Cross). These are then meshed in to the Chorus backbone at a couple of key locations/exchanges. Your local cabinet is connected to the backbone by a fibre back haul. Your connection to that cabinet can be over copper (ADSL2+, VDSL, UFB, etc). Each cabinet services XXX number of local properties/connections.

If we assume XXX is say 200 connections, and also assume that each connection is a 10Mbit (1/2 ADSL2+ speeds), you get a combined max load of 2000Mbit, which may or may not be greater than the capacity of the local back haul. If the local backhaul was only gigabit, you would probably end up with a saturated link and bbbbbbuuuuuffffeeering. As more people move to streaming services, the load will increase.

You have to remember that the way that broadband connections are provisioned in NZ is/was pretty abysmal. iirc it was something along the lines of 64Kb of provisioning for each new connection (ie. 320 customers x 64Kb = 1 x 20Mbit provisioning). Whilst you may be connected at ultra speeds, reality is the pipes are old & cludged up.

Also, last week or so, there have been issues on SXC (cut see - http://www.stuff.co.nz/business/68739063/cable-cut-for-second-time-in-three-months) which may have added additional crap to your viewing.

General Chat / Verdun - WW1 - FPS (on Steam)
« on: May 08, 2015, 03:39:40 pm »
A lovely review....



---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If we look at Verdun in the standards of modern gaming, it fails miserably.

Compared to triple A games and large developers, Verdun and it's developers fails in almost every aspect of game making.

No first day DLC save final updates.
No microtransactions.
No "pay to win" mentality.
No unrealistic twitch shooting.
No dodgy business practices.
No massive failures on day one.
No insane advantage for high level gamers.
No false advertising.

By today's standards, verdun would fail on the table of EA, Bethesda, CA, SEGA, Nintendo, and just about every single gaming company that is larger than, say, CD Projekt Red.

These failures, however, make this game the best FPS on the market as of now.

These indie developers have crafted the most satisfying experience I have had in a first person shooter in a long damned time.

The game is perfectly digestable, the upgrades system is easy to get, the weapons are balanced and look and handle fantastically...

The list of amazing acheivements this game has accomplished could go on for pages of writing.

Verdun created it's own version of FPS gameplay, taking us to an era most companies find dull and drab. The trench warfare turn based attack gameplay is insane, as you see first hand the horrors of the First World War, which, by the way, is now 100 years past.

I bought this game in eraly access and was satisfied with it. Now I can't get enough of it!

I have been fed up with large companies coming out with garbage and selling DLC every five minutes. Verdun's updates and new squards are being released free of charge over the next while, so this game will become even better and more varied than it is now.

Verdun is one of a special kind of game, one that requires teamwork to dominate the map. While battlefield has become zany and unrealistic, Verdun forces you to play as a team, and unlike in battlefield, if you fail to do so, you will die again, and again, and again.

I cannot recommend this game more to anyone. The learning curb is massive, but you have so many classes to play as that are open to even the newest players.

Honestly there is something satisfying about having to use bolt action rifles in a trench that is captivating in and of itself. It is insanly addicitive and the squad based gameplay is incredible.

Verdun is by far the best FPS I have ever played as I have put in so many hours of my life into it (roughly 10 hours alone in hte last few weeks).

I cannot recommend this game any more.

SO GO BUY IT.

And as for some advice, keep your head down.
This isn't Call of Duty.

Technology & Hardware / Re: SNAP Internet
« on: March 25, 2015, 08:29:22 am »
telecom unlimted vdsl i am pulling 32down and 12up with 6ms to local spark hub and 18-20ms to auckland from Rangiora near christchurch (technically the whop whops infrastructure wise)

Why are you not on fibre yet bitch? Enabled rolled it past your house just after I moved out!

$$ unless your paying for it.

and thanks speakman I am enjoying Spark, same speed, same service, cheaper price, and i notice my ping does not skyrocket in peak times like it did with snap.

so service and cost wise your argument is null in my case

Not all ISP's charge more for different connection types - there are some that charge same rate for ADSL2+, VDSL & UFB.

With Rii's downsizing, how long before we see him rocking one of these ?




Oh honey, only four inches?
Spoiler :
best christmas movie ever.


4 inches x 2 sides, add back in the other inch on either side and you get 10" of thrust

Or in chick speak - 16 cubic inches of awesomeness....
