Site overhaul

After 2 years of silence I've overhauled my site. Still tweaking the theme and got a lazy setup for the blog/wiki sections for now.

Strangest Windows Update Problem

Updated 1/30/2013. I've recently came across the strangest windows update "bug" I've ever had the pleasure of dealing with. Attempting to search for updates will have windows tell you the updates service is not running. Checking the status of the service will show that it is running. Every thing else worked fine in windows. Be it a web browser, Word, gpedit.msc, compmgmt.msc, or whatever. Well, Microsoft Security Essentials would not update but it piggy backs of Windows Updates for actually getting its …

Benefits of hosting the presidential speech.

The president will be giving a live speech soon as you all know. The ISP for my work was kind enough to completely lift the restrictions on our fiber line for 24 hours. They did this because this fiber line is the president's Internet connection before and after the speech. The press will be using it for their stuff. Then during the speech it is the primary line for the upload on the live stream. I must say it was damn cool seeing the jaws drop on the presidential's IT staff when they did their speed test …

They say a picture is worth a thousand words.

Now I don't know if that is true or not but I do know this pictures is worth more than valve's 140 character limit for screenshot captions. There is quite the story behind this screenshot and I'm quite amazed at just how much of it is in this picture. Kinda creepy really. My brother and I were playing on Lotus stocks #2 late at night after the regulars had left. The map in the screenshot is stage 1 of payload Thunder Mountain. I'm playing medic and my brother is pyro. I uber him as we leap from the …

Darksiders feels strongly of the Devil May Cry games. The difficulty is on par with what I remember of the first DMC; no rushing into the fray with reckless abandon or you'll die quickly, even on easy in the mid to late game. I wussed out and started over on easy. Beating the game on easy has the adeptly named achievement "You Call That Easy?"; I still got my ass handed to me a number of times, damn floating demon women. You'll know who I'm talking about when one sneaks in 3-4 hits and you kiss 2 life bars …

Uptime of 505 days gone.

I finally had to reboot my server because it was starting to act funny. Seems a continuous uptime of 505 days was too much when combined to the numerous updates to the software over the past year and a half. All of the slowness I've experienced on the console and in the webpages is gone now. Restarting services wasn't doing the trick, memory and hdd space were only 15% used each. Was just an odd problem.
