    Mechwarrior Online, anyone looking foward?

    So beta not out yet? Curious, site is down, but all my mechs/cash have been reset. More concerned because I have a countdown to my premium account and then said it would not be activated right away.

    Mechwarrior Online, anyone looking foward?

    Oh unfortunately it can be a very real problem. I don't have the numbers but around ~40% of the time I play PUG the other team is grouped. Its terrible.

    X-COM Enemy Unknown

    I am actually going to admit defeat and try playing the game on Normal. I have been trying again and again on classic but I keep failing miserably. I always seem to reach a point where the game goes from beatable to meltdown.

    Yeah they are a lot of fun. The only thing to keep in mind is you do not get those 4cores dedicated.

    Mechwarrior Online NDA Lifted!

    Yeah they are definitely targeting the MP crowd. There was a HUGE MP community surrounding the originals and then on to MechCommander. There was someone amazing about being part of a group that was part of a much larger map. Deciding to invade planets etc and getting certain defined resources...

    Remote Network Consulting / VPN Setup

    Hah I wish. I might have confused it a big. THey are a huge corporation, we are trying to implement a vpn connection between our servers and they 100% run cisco and in this case cisco asa. No getting around it. Our trouble has been finding the most efficient solution to create the tunnel since...

    Remote Network Consulting / VPN Setup

    Right thats VPC. Lets you partition off a private/public subnet for your instances. It really works best with BGP. They just added static routing but it seems that its still really shaky. Our client uses a Cisco ASA which does not offer BGP.

    Remote Network Consulting / VPN Setup

    Location South Carolina. Client is running Cisco ASA. Wanting to setup site-to-site vpn connection. We run all of our production servers in AWS cloud. There is no native firewall/vpn service as part of AWS. The best AWS can offer is something called VPC. Until recently it only supported BGP...

    Remote Network Consulting / VPN Setup

    Does anyone know any company / person who wants to make a few bucks helping out setup a VPN site to site? We have an server 08 machine needing to get setup as a client to a remote peer. Beyond my scope as a database guy and we just need to get it finished.

    $50 for Battlefield 3 online play

    yeah I was thinking the same thing. BF3 is the one game I have never had real trouble getting into a server. Given I only play hardcore rush 32 (3-4 popular NA servers) but its still never a problem. I would have paid $50 for all the older generation games that had no queue and the dweeb server...

    Railworks 3: Train Simulator 2012 - 60% off on Steam!

    Kind of a silly question. Everyone has different hobbies and interests. Its really no different then a flight simulator or any other simulator for that matter. As for prior questions the DLC are priced like that because of the niche market it is.

    Office NAS Suggestions

    I am hesitant to build my own only because I do not want to be responsible for it but its not something I am unwilling to do. The only problem with freenas is the encryption requirement. Would be stuck with freenas7. Not that anything is wrong with that but i dont want to waste my time...

    Left 4 Dead 2 - Does anyone still play?

    Exactly. The infrastructure was there and it was something I was hoping to see when it was announced but never happened. Some think it sounds shitty because you might have to leave mid-game but think about the other people you are playing with. Any game where its less than 10 people requires...

    Left 4 Dead 2 - Does anyone still play?

    Same, never could get into L4D2. The first one was amazing, played it to death then dropped it after a few months. Tried L4D2 and it was just full of asshats raging all the time. What did me in was the lack of any type of rage tracking system.

    Gabe Newell opens up about lack of updates regarding next Half Life...

    trolololol. The last thing Gabe cares about is more money. They make games for the love of it, I can imagine you can get bored with the same storyline. Gabe already made it in life after working at MSFT for YEARS. He has said time after time that Valve is about making enjoyable games. Sure its...

    In light of Hawken and Mechwarrior Online - Joystick (for mechs) thread

    Go somewhere else then. You asked advice about joysticks for two particular games. Someone pointed out that one of those games would probably suffer from a joystick. There is no value in turning down free advice. Cheers though. +ignored.

    Setting up offsite backup for home use

    IMO no point in going with spideroak. AFAIK crashplan offers the same features and is much cheaper. There is no reason you cannot backup to your parents machine but honestly, paying for crashplan is the way to go. Much higher level of redundancy and a lot less hassle.

    Two WANs, one LAN... but no load balancing

    No need to buy a commercial solution or jerry-rig something. Just run pfSense on an old machine.

    Server in my house? How to make it?

    Sorry but you are either ignorant or not a business owner (or a bad one). Lets first start with the fact that running a legit hosting service is hardly easy, it takes time to have a high uptime that is redundant and is secure. Unless your time is worth less than $0, it is 100% not worth the...

    Protect your laptop info in case it is stolen?

    I do not have specific numbers but my short answer is no. I use TrueCrypt and Pointsec/Checkpoint FDE and I do not notice any issues. I am sure there is some IO lag but with a modern processor I notice nothing. Of course this is just with the manipulation of data files and not gaming or anything...
