oh no

Wait I just rejoined and now it says

The server has dropped the connection:
You are now banned from this server. Reason: show off

I wasn't doing anything particularly hacker-y or showoff-y so yeah I'm not quite sure what happened there.

I'll put this image here so you can see the original ban notice and the new ban notice.

The second image is smaller because I took it from my screen capture instead of directly :\ Wish I had thought to record the whole encounter for Youtube.

The server in question that I was banned from is highlighted grey on here (indominus rex's "spedkart"):

It's practically addicitatay!

Personal idea I want tried: Install Wireshark on the VM, and see what Bonzi Buddy actually sends to the internet.


But what does the antiskating do? And what do cartridges do? I thought the tonearm just had a thing built-in that you put needles in...

Could someone sum up all the parts of a record player, please?

I'm confused about cartridges.

I found out that the newcombs are actually very hard on records, possibly worse than crosleys. So yeah, probably won't get one

I wish I knew which players aren't hard on records...  :panda:

EDIT: Make sure it has a counterbalanced tone arm with adjustable weight.

Parent's record player works great...

Except that the preamp is being used for something else now so the record player has nothing to make it able to play to speakers or headphones. :panda:

On the other hand, the preamp still works like new around 30 years later!

This Crosley has begun to drive me up the wall with that tinny noise. I'm afraid to get a newcomb though, I've heard they're just as hard on records, if not worse.

I don't know much about record wear...
Internet would probably help

Not my voice, but my tiny keyboard playing.

.vmap (Source Engine 2.0 map file)
.roobicks (My personal file format for making maps for a game I stopped working on called Roobicks, which is a lot like pgm, ppm, and pbm.)

I eat cereal without any milk

I never liked milk much for some reason...

I've looked for one at thrift stores and will continue to, but my issues of getting a new one are:
My dad bought me the crosley so he might be offended

I'd need speakers and a whole setup which is expensive (crosley has built ins). Plus, I have nowhere to put a big setup at the moment.

The ones from the 80s typically can't play 78s. I need at least a 3 speed with the switchable needle.

There were always bad ones like the crosley, and with my luck, i'll end up getting one of those.

First issue I can't help you with.

Second issue is a bit tough because you probably aren't an incredibly skilled vintage electronics repairman like the guy in the video, but that Newcomb record player looks nice. (I know nothing about what record players are good, though!)

Third issue is solved by the Newcomb record player, which has the correct styluses (styli?) for 78 RPM without tons of surface "no-oise"

Fourth issue is similar to second one's answer... :c They made good ones a while ago, but now Crosley and other similar brands exist.

Also vacuum tubes on old record players eat electricity (like having an incandescent light bulb for each vacuum tube), and if it has a hot chassis, it gives you 50% chance of electrocution on contact with any metal parts! Yaaaaay!

Inflation, anesthesia, and hypnosis.

Note: Anesthesia isn't based on the mask, it's the effect of the gas. Very hard to find anything specifically about this.
