Off Topic / a thank you topic
« on: October 28, 2016, 07:16:11 PM »
I'm not writing this as an "I'm leaving" post, but as a very sincere 'thank you' post. So this might come off a bit sappy.

I was reluctant on writing this knowing the nature of this forum (and hell, it may have gotten worse), but as my social life went down the stuffter after high school ended and college started, my web of closely knit friends became ever less communicative with each other- including me.
I found myself nostalgia tripping over the memories of the days were I frequently came here; when I came to have a quick laugh or even to have a quick jab at someone who made a slight mistake in their post.
This was the only place I could socialize with people while I was at home. Because at the time services like Steam, Skype, and IM were not commonplace, so my outlets were limited.

But when I do revisit here, I notice that each time there seems to be fewer and fewer older users who post. So I think this may be the only time I can post this and have at least a few who read can relate.

I registered here on September 9th, 2009- 7 years ago when I was but 11 years old. Probably not the best age to have joined this forum, but hey, I was going to join eventually. Since then, I've seen this forum go through a lot: hacking, DDoSing, furry drama, brony drama, suicide by stab, doxxing, key deactivation, ip bans being lifted, waves of keyless bot accounts, two massive pony megathreads, many avatar fads, glorious chainbans, greenlight hype, shadows & shaders controversy, many infamous stuffposters and trolls, a forgetton of other drama, and most importantly: masturbation with a tuna jar.

Many users have come and gone. Many banned, some left by their own will, and the few who just never came back.

Through the immense amount of stuff (both good and bad) I made many friends here, and some not so much. Regardless of how you may view this forum whether it may be good or bad,
I did grow up and mature on this forum along with the fellows who went on it- and I don't regret one single second of it.

What I'm trying to say is this: to the growing few who are still here

Thank you.
Thank you for the memories.

Off Topic / Post your handwriting thread
« on: December 02, 2015, 07:25:39 PM »
Show us how loving terrible and atrocious wonderful you write by posting a picture of your handwriting on a written piece of paper or by using a drawing tablet

The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.

btw if you're using a tablet please don't to use that stabilizer bullstuff.

starwars45's Profile

After his return from his ban from stuffting on the MLP topic, he reunites himself with his PMing privileges and uses his idiot powers to send me a heartwarming compliment about my avatar.

If you read closely at the 3rd message, you can see "instead of starting a whole topic about it".
He wanted to make a topic...

...about the removal of avatar...
...okay then

Since I've already blocked him and reported the 1st message, I guess there is nothing left to do but debate about the subject.

Because of recent events on this forum, I should also throw out something:

There is a big difference between hating MLP and/or Bronies and just being a general friend about it.
Same goes for Bronies. There is a big difference between liking the show and posting putrid stuff wherever you go (We have threads to contain that stuff)

Off Topic / Attention Tor users
« on: April 17, 2013, 01:29:43 PM »
From now on when you try to post when using the Tor Network (Either from your computer or your phone it doesn't matter), you will automatically be banned. Don't fret though, the duration of the ban is actually quite short as from I've seen. Possibly after you log off or go offline. I discovered this while at school today to get passed the school's IP filtering system. After making this post, I was immediately silently banned for the reason "Tor".

It is safe to assume that this was implemented into the server a while ago to prevent further hijackers from hiding their IP. We still aren't safe however. Since there are a wide variety of web proxies and bouncing software out there to get passed this, so don't get too comfortable.

I thought I would share this with everyone so they don't think they were banned or permabanned for using Tor. No need to dish out another 20.

Drama / Thenerd - Claims to have been hacked
« on: March 17, 2013, 08:13:20 PM »
The original topic was locked so I'll continue it from here.

Thenerd (who is apparently Freek, I think) recently posted (Thankyou, Nightfox for preserving this wonderful piece of writing.)
i fap to bubbas prepubesent tits every night and dream of raping her
i want to stick my richard into her ass and shove my hand down her throat while shes screaming in pain
after that i will suffocate her with a mattress and drown her in her own blood while loving her

Afterwords, he claimed he saw the topic and claimed to have been hacked. Which is odd since usually, whoever hacks an account is usually tempted to stuffpost topics, gore, other disturbing images, etc.
I believed he claimed to have been hacked to cover up his stupid mistake upon realizing how many levels of stupid was injected into his post.

I could be right or wrong, so I'll leave this up for debate.

I'm not a big fan of racing or prank videos, but my father showed me this and I found it quite funny.

This guy manages to grow another chin when he is scared, apparently.

Off Topic / Bitcoin Mining "Megathread"
« on: March 11, 2013, 11:35:09 PM »
Note: This topic's main subject is Bitcoin mining. Not so much as selling or buying Bitcoins or where to spend them.
The sole purpose of this thread is to help users start mining

It seems though many people on this forum are starting to get interest in Bitcoins. To help other people along, I made some tips to getting started and how to roll in some virtual dough.

"What is Bitcoin?"
Bitcoin is a form of digital currency developed by Satoshy Nakamoto in 2009.
"What can I do with Bitcoins?"
You are able to purchase virtual/real items as you would with real money. The only difference here is that the money doesn't go through a bank or "higher-class" money management system. So you can purchase all your drugs n' guns n' stuff
"What is Bitcoin Mining?"
Bitcoin Mining is where your computer is set to solve complex algorithms known as "Block hashing algorithms" to solve Blocks.
Basically, it's free money. I don't need to explain much for you to get the idea.
"Free money? Isn't that illegal? Isn't this entire "Bitcoin" scheme illegal?"
No. Bitcoin is a virtual currency, you can use almost anything as a currency as long as the person your trading it with accepts it. Remember back in elementary school where you sold your lunch for some trading card? Yeah, that wasn't illegal, was it?
If you're interested, there is an entire page related to anything you might think is illegal or cause legal issues. For you paranoid people.
"How to I mine my GPU?"
By downloading a miner that supports GPU mining.
"So, does the program run on the GPU?"
The program doesn't "run" on the GPU. It uses the CPU like every single program out there. However it is able to send instructions to the GPU through OpenCL and have it process it. Games, including 2D or 3D, work the exact same way (Except through OpenGL or DirectX, which their purpose is to handle graphics, not so much custom algorithms)
"So, a GPU is a Graphics Card?"
Actually, a GPU is a part of the graphics card that does that actual processing.
The graphics card itself is pretty much a large data bus that connects other parts of the graphics card onto it (Memory, D-Sub and/or DVI display support, GPU, etc.).
"Will I get DDoS'd when I mine?"
Other way around. When you take part in Pool mining, you mine and send the finished piece of work including proof-of-work to the server. Occasionally the server is unable to handle all the work sent by all the miners and is temporarily down.
"What's the risk?"
The only risk out there in mining is making sure you're getting more out of it than you're putting in. And just like real money, you need to secure your Bitcoins too.

Getting Started
Wallets (Optional)
Before you start mining, you might want to get yourself a Bitcoin Wallet. It'll be able to store Bitcoins you have recieved or mined. However this is completely optional.
You can nab yourself a offline wallet here. It'll take some time to synchronize. So be patient.

Other wallet software

Other links you should check out for your wallet
Deterministic Wallets
EWallets/Browser-based Wallets
Securing your Wallet

Desktops vs. Laptops & Netbooks
Desktops should be used for mining. Hands down. Laptops and Netbooks are prone to overheating due to their bad cooling systems. They should never be used for mining unless you want a melted GPU and a damaged motherboard.

Okay, so before you want to dig your filthy hands into virtual money, you want to consider how much power you'll be consuming and how much you'll get in return. If you're not the one paying the bills or you don't care; Take no consideration. Continue. If you DO pay the bills or you DO care; proceed anyway. You won't know the math until you start mining.
So, how the hell do we start mining? You'll need what is called a Bitcoin Miner. It will "mine" your hardware to start making Bitcoins.

My prefered miner is BitMinter. However there are many more miners out there (be careful of malicious miners out there, they do exist).
Here is a list of known, trusted Bitcoin miners you can try out for yourself:

CPU Mining VS. GPU Mining
I'll put this short. Your GPU is a million times (I'm not even exaggerating here) faster than your CPU is at mining. On top of that, your CPU consumes more power trying to process information than your GPU does, making it a inefficient and slow device to mine with. The only time you should use your CPU is when you're forced to because your GPU can't mine, if that is the case; don't bother mining (Most integrated cards are unable to mine, especially outdated ones)

Pool Mining VS. Single/Solo Mining

Pool Mining Pros
  • Steadier Income
Pool Mining Cons
  • Vulnerable to Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks from many miners
  • Charges fees for perks
  • Can be malicious and be used in Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks
Solo Mining Pros
  • Higher Uptime
  • No fees
Solo Mining Cons
  • Slower Income
While it may appear Pool mining has a lot of cons, you're better off going with Pool mining. Solo mining is for more... large mining systems.

Good Mining Hardware
I know I have already said this, but a good GPU (Or "Graphics Card" if you want to put it that way) should be the only device your using for mining. So either you read this far because you got one or are soon to get one.

Don't have one? There is an entire list of hardware that shows how fast they mine. (hint hint: look for the ones with high rates and good efficiency)
You can even look for your card/processor and see how well it performs. If it is not there; It has probably not been tested.

Mining Rigs (Optional)
If you're the type of person who wants to make money, but still has rolls of money laying around: You're in luck.
Mining rigs are custom built computers specifically designed for mining Bitcoins.

There is even a list of hardware you can get to make your own rig.

Helpful Links
These are links I've been frequently using for Bitcoin related stuff
Official Bitcoin Wiki -
Bitcoin to [Your currency here] Converter - (Constantly updates)
Bitcoin Mining Calculator - (This is a really helpful tool. You can enter in your hash rate and see how much you'll make in time)
Bitcoin Profit Calculator - (Use this to see if you're making a profit from the amount of BTC you're making and from your power consumption)

Happy mining!

Off Topic / Any good, old games that run under Windows 2000?
« on: March 09, 2013, 05:43:10 PM »
I just recently got my old eMachines T1440 working again and bridged to my main computer so I can finally do something with it.

It's currently using Windows 2000 because Windows XP used to much resources.

My specs are:
CPU: Intel Celeron @ 1.4 GHz (Single Core)
GPU: Intel Corporation 810 Graphics Controller (It's a integrated card... yeah)

I'm sure I might be able to run games as far down as Windows 95. Not sure about DOS games, though.

Gallery / The Thinker I - A 6-bit Addition ALU
« on: December 27, 2012, 12:08:37 PM »
The Thinker I

"The Thinker I" is a 6-bit Blockland addition ALU that is capable of counting from 0 to 63. The ALU does not use any kind of named bricks or relays that go in a specific direction, so you are able to have multiple builds of "The Thinker I" on your server running at the same time. The circuitry that the ALU uses is Melting Plastic's Logic Bricks.

The speed of the ALU is unknown. I haven't done any kind of calculations of how many calculations it can do per second, so it's up to your (or possibly someone else) to find it yourself.

For Developers
Red - I/O 32
Yellow - I/O 16
Green - I/O 8
Blue - I/O 4
Orange - I/O 2
Dark Red - I/O 1
Black - Integer Overflow error

I got so much stuff going through my mind right now its so loving hard to think.

Here's the short story:
A couple of weeks after I met my girlfriend and became her "very special somepony" I noticed she had depression. I didn't think much of and though it would subside. The second time her depression it started to affect me, and I started to constantly listen to "Mr. Blue Sky" by ELO and Smile Smile Smile to rid of my depression but it gets annoying after 6 hours of listening to it over and over. Well now I discovered she had permanent depression since she was 2 years old and she has been keeping it off using a stuffload of anti-depressants and 6 therapists.

Here's the problem, if she "looses me" I am afraid she will end up...well..."driving herself off of a cliff" if you know what I mean, but yet again I don't want to end off driving off a cliff myself either.

Seriously guys, I need some loving help and advice here. The endless depression is literally killing us both.
