    Lol, the episdoe you are talking about is "The Naked Time" from the first season of TOS. In TNG's first season it had an episode called "The Naked Now" in which a similar virus ravages the Enterprise, but is stronger. It is the only episode of TNG to reference Kirk, and the old Enterprise.


    Yea I remember they had to pull up the old records to relate to the virus and how it worked.

    posted a message on Thoughts on 15gb ram server?
    Quote from battlekid

    Let's assume your server is consuming ~200w, 24/7. This is a somewhat low estimate, but I'll give it a shot.

    Assuming a cost of 10c/KWH (which is typical), and 24/7 operation, that's around $15/month in electricity costs. This assumes you run your server on a dedicated, low power box. With the typical gaming computer, you'd be looking at $30-$45/month, maybe more.

    Then, network. 110 people with zero lag? Assuming you go low on the bandwidth, you're looking at (at least) a 20mbps uplink. I'm not too sure about you, but if you want a 20mbps uplink, I'd expect to pay no less than $50/month, most likely at least $100/month, and MUCH more for a business line that allows server hosting and gives you a static IP. So, let's assume you're in a fiber-rich area, on a business line. Thus, a good estimate is $100-$200/month.

    Then, we have more things to worry about. Hardware costs is one — a barebones, low end server is at least $300.

    And then, what happens when your power goes out? Oh dear, that server is down.

    So, $115-$245/month for a home-hosted server, plus at least $300 to build it (unless you're running it on your desktop). This assumes that you're in a area with fast and cheap business fiber, and that your line can push the full speed, and that your power or internet doesn't go out at any time. Meanwhile, you could rent a i7 with 16GB of RAM and 10TB at 100mbps from Hetzner for $160 up front and $50/month, or a i3-2100 with 8GB of RAM and 10TB @ 1gbps from DataShack for $89/month. Both options would have redundant power that won't go down, any broken hardware would be replaced for free (and quickly), you'll have more than enough bandwidth, and great hardware to boot. Not to mention that even datashack's cheap bandwidth mix would end up routing better than a FTTH solution.


    You see, all of what you're saying would make sense if I was debating on getting it and had no idea how it would run but uhm...let me clear this up for you that will make you understand.

    I HAVE BEEN RUNNING IT HERE FOR ALMOST A YEAR DIPSHIT.

    I know exactly what my costs are, yes it is a fiber rich area and allows me 32mbps. If the power goes out? Well, with how the system works the entire areas power needs to go out before my power goes out. hardware costs? What else am I buying? I have the RAM and the system and it's connected to a shitty HP screen just in case I need to pull up something to type in. What if something breaks? Hm lucky me, I have someone that will fix it withing 24 hours that's always on call for support 24/7 if I need them or they can be here within that day..oh, for free as well...did I mention that? I really don't see what your point is that you are trying to make by telling me what i've owned for a year now. That's like you telling me what you have at your house and I just up right say "Nope, that's a lie, nope nope I don't nope not happening let me tell you why you don't have it and why you are wrong" no offense but are you ****ing retarded? Like I said, if I was debating on buying it yes everything you said would be relevant but the fact that I ALREADY OWN EVERYTHING AND HAVE FOR A YEAR AND KNOW EVERYTHING IT DOES then what the **** is your point, really, enlighten me what your point is with all of this when everything you just tried to prove as being bad does NOT apply to me.

    I know it can be really difficult to hide, as ive been attempting to hide it frrom a few people for a while now. :(


    if you think it's hard now, wait until you get to basic. You have less rights than a prisoner, really. Being clean? nope it wont happen. You don't even get time to wipe your ass. Everyone has **** stains on their drawers because you don't have time to even wipe your own ass, there is 100 more things I can list but that's pretty much a summary of how it is.

    Quote from Ace_Toxic777

    I'm a bit reluctant to do so as I am not really wanting my entire server to be PvP I was kind of hoping only to allow PvP in the arena. Is this possible through the commands you just mentioned?


    Maybe, that's my fix to your global issue. I had that problem and their is my solution, unless someone has a different one that's the best you can do.

    Had the same issue on my server, took a whole 2 days to figure out. Just do this...

    Use /mvm set pvp true, then /region __global__ pvp allow


    Type that as a player in-game not through your console.

    Best bet is top copy and paste that from here to minecraft chat.

    Quote from battlekid

    Oh dear, this will be fun. Allow me to list the disadvantages of owning and home-hosting (so to speak) your server.
    • Uptime issues
    • Power stability issues
    • Network stability issues (residential lines don't have a SLA!)
    • Low quality bandwidth (ISPs don't usually bother with the quality that datacenters do)
    • Extremely expensive to get enough bandwidth
    • Power is expensive
    • You have to pay for hardware
    • A DDoS attack would knock down your server without a issue, and take your home internet down with it
    • Using your internet will saturate the line, reducing effective bandwidth usable for the server (unless you have a extremely large pipe and some advanced QoS rules)



    I tested it, I held 110 people on my server lag free at one time.
    Before I took it down to leave for a while it was at 98% uptime
    Internet connection? Direct you to 110 people again, no problem.
    power is expensive? Extra 25$ a month after power usage just from that.
    Using the internet affects it? again, no.
    I also have someone that can answer any question or fix any problem for me for free regarding the hardware or software in the server.

    Again, if you do it improperly then yes it is a HORRIBLE idea, but if you are prepared, then it works amazing.

    (Except for the fact that it takes up my whole closet and sounds like a jet engine taking off when I open the door every few hours to ventilate).

    Yeah thats correct. I need to be clean 24/7, I usually take 3-4 showers a day, a roll, maybe 2 of paper towels a day, wipe down chairs, keyboard, mouse, anything I touch I wipe down basically. It kinda makes sense that they wouldnt let me into the armed forces, but FBI I would think would let me in, not sure though. I'm just a kid.

    @Pretzelguy1 I rcently started therapy and it's helped a bit. Any tips I could get from ya? ^.^

    So, all in all, If joining the armed forces was my life dream, Im screwed? :x


    read my above comment, not sure if you saw that I posted. Also feel free to inbox me any personal questions about the process and i will gladly answer them for you.

    hey everyone, so I was chatting with a friend of mine (A former marine, served 2 tours.) and I brought up that i'd like to be in the armed forces/FBI someday. Then I was told they wouldn't accept me due to my OCD? Does the armed forces/FBI really not accept someone due to a mental condition such as OCD? :c

    I tried google, but it didn't help much. Soo yeah. =x


    For the armed forces you will be kicked out for it, unless you can hide it VERY well but they will force your ocd to come out during reception/basic. I can honestly say this due to experience and a friend having to get EPTS out of basic when I was in due to his OCD and you will be treated like the lowest piece of **** when you get discharged, don't bother and save yourself a few months of being put in a holding bay, treated like ****, and being treated like scum.

    I have to agree with Metadigital, the community is generally crap, but a lot of games have awful communities anyway.
    I'm around level 25 or something with about 130 wins, I usually play as Jax, Miss fortune, Olaf and Urgot.


    The community is alright, if you get Brazilians then it goes downhill really quick.

    Quote from Satharis

    Oh, a little more advice, don't be afraid to learn strange things. You'll figure out pretty quickly that if you want to be a game programmer you probably can't just settle for being "the graphics guy" or "the networking guy" I get different things to do all that time and eventually you literally do end up learning a moderate amount of every single aspect of coding. Knowledge is power.

    A lot of it comes down to learning about computers, software, common toolsets and things like that as well, programming sounds like something you could learn in a day(and sometimes it is) but learning to -be- a programmer is literally a lifetime of doing "stuff". You'd be surprised at what points knowing how packets work or how so and so piece of software works will make your job ten times easier.


    I will keep this in mind, I appreciate the advice!
