  1. Got Internet back on at my house. My Unemployment went thru so after bills are taken care of, I'll check in from time to time on Mumble.
  2. Nope. Just don't have Internet at the house at the moment. I'm actually using my mom's Internet at her house on her computer. I should be back online soonish tho, and I will stop by Mumble when I do (assuming anyone is actually online). See ya then!
  3. Ok, as some of you know, I have a fibrous tumor on my left jaw bone. I've had it now for 6 years or so, and I've been told it's benign (not bad). Well, at the urging of many of my friends here, as well as my family, I started the process of doctor's visits and what-not's to have it removed, almost 6 months ago. I'm nearing the end of that journey, as I have a meeting with the doctors up at the University of North Carolina Medical Center next week to discuss the surgery. Here's what I know right now. The mass is part of the parotid gland (salivary if you will). They're not uncommon to have, and most folks are smart enough to have them dealt with when they are small. However, mine has been growing for a while, so I will have a few more complications to having it removed. The first, and most important, is that the facial nerve intersects with the tumor. So that's going to make a lengthy and delicate procedure so that I don't loose use of that nerve. Secondly, the tumor has to be removed as it is starting to cause me great pain and migraines. And lastly, believe it or not, the tumor has actually started to have me denied jobs because of it. I wanted to let everyone know what is going on, since I've been a ghost for the past few months. Between finding another job, then getting it and losing it a week later due to negligence, my luck and mental health haven't been great lately. When I find out more, I'll let you know. Now I have to find someway to pay the bills for the surgery. Ugh.
  4. Can we get this as an actual plaque to hang on my office wall? That'd be awesome.
  5. Found this on youTube, by chance. Thought I'd go ahead and link it here.
  6. Great Gnome Race: Remembering SancTuarY City (before Sony destroyed SWG): And of course the goofier side of Star Trek Online... Some of the fanfiction that was spawned (either directly or otherwise) during our time in Star Wars Galaxies: https://www.fanfiction.net/s/2650092/1/Star-Wars-Galaxies And wow...either Astrus has been doing some SERIOUS search engine optimization, or what, but the first 3 items on a google search of "Sanctuary of Wanderhome" actually lists our website and RSI's outfit page: https://www.google.com/#q=sanctuary+of+wanderhome&* We've had a glorious and storied past, and I feel rather confident that we'll have an even more glorious future ahead. :deepbow:
  7. hi

    Welcome to SancT. Enjoy your stay, but please keep your feet off my coffee table. My Wookiee is getting grumpy about having to polish it every day. :D I've been here since 2005'ish. I've seen a lot, done a lot, and I still call these merry few my friends! Now where did I put that book that was inspired by the 72-hour war on Dantooine...
  8. So the title says it all. My PC is better than it was. Here's the Old Specs: Intel Core2 Quad @ 2.67GHz (4 Cores / 4 Threads / Hyper Threading)(LGA775) 8GB DDR2-800 RAM PCI-E 2.0 Slots GeForce GTX 750 Ti (PCI-E 3.0 Card) Cinebench Score: 204 @ 34.99 FPS (eww) New Specs: Intel Pentium G4560 @ 3.5 GHz (2 cores / 4 Threads / Hyper Threading)(LGA1151) [Kaby Lake] 16GB DDR4-3000 RAM (Though with the Low-End CPU, RAM is throttled back to 2133MHz, not a big deal tho) PCI-E 3.0 Slots (No-SLI Support, However, do have 2x Crossfire support) GeForce GTX 750 Ti (PCI-E 3.0 Card) Cinebench Score: 378 @ 80.84 FPS (almost 3x the FPS of old hardware) Star Citizen Benchmarks: 7 FPS(old)/15 FPS(new) [Vanduul Swarm Single Player] (Funny to note, in my RL Aurora no less). I'd say somewhat playable...but not the best it could be. So, I'm going to look at either a 1060 or possibly doing a couple of RX490's in Crossfire. We'll see. But first things first, need to (still) find another job--or at least create one of my own. See yall out there in the 'Verse!
  9. Along those same lines, something I saw in my email that I get from RSI--a mention that if you purchase something for one game "Shroud of the Avatar", you get a ship for Star Citizen as well. Here's the link to the website: https://www.shroudoftheavatar.com/?page_id=9085 Here's the link to the email: http://us5.campaign-archive1.com/?u=32d8ef31243db6075c45571bd&id=52300f40a0&e=43ea602849
  10. Well, I went ahead and bought some parts for an upgrade. I'll keep the current case, hard drive, PSU, and video card I have (GeForce 750 GTX Ti). I'm adding Intel Core i5-6500, 16GB G.Skill Ripjaw V DDR4-3000 RAM, and an Asrock Z170-Pro4S Mobo. All in all, a $425 upgrade. Here's the PC Part Picker list: https://pcpartpicker...ya/saved/8fjBmG (Price is higher than listed because apparently newegg changed the price on the memory from 99.89 to 104.99 today and the list hasn't updated yet.) Plus I added a tube of Arctic Silver compound for the cpu cooler. Gonna recycle my Hyper EVO 212 from the current machine. It should be fine for the stock/non-overclocked cpu. I'll post pics when I do the upgrade.
  11. All I have is GTA V, well from that list. We'll see tho.
  12. To Install on Linux: sudo apt-get install mumble
  13. LOL. Tunnel Bear is a paid VPN service, to hide your computer from spying eyes. It works for general browsing, and maybe even for games, if you can stand the latency.
