  • Beat those Covid19 blues !

    Hello all,

    So lets face it, this whole Coronovirus outbreak is a huge bummer whether you have the virus or not. Some of us at work are running skeleton crews or we are now working from home, so lets beat out those blues and share what we are up to while we are working from home (or should be haha) or if we are off work completely. I know I am getting sick and tired of hearing about the doom and gloom, so lets share some joy.

    I will start.....

    I am still currently tweaking my new system as per my sig rig. Still tuning up that CPU and the RAM. Currently managing to get 4.4Ghz on all cores stable at 1.3v on my 3950X, any less and I get some quirks. Running Ram at a steady 3600Mhz but will look to see if I can tighten the timings but not running too bad at 16-16-16-42.

    Still figuring out through why I am still getting such a low score on the Crytek Neon Noir benchmark (I encourage others to give it a shot and submit). Currently getting around 7300 which is a little frustrating. Tried all sorts but I think the evil here is a setting somewhere ! Will fight the good fight.


    However to keep up the cheer here is a puppy.

    So what are you guys doing or going to be doing in the coming days ?

    My company ordered all employees to work from home for the foreseeable future, so I get to hang out with this furry poop factory while working at home on CAD models and programs.

    Nevermind, can't get the image uploader to work and don't feel like sharing my dog to an image sharing site just to link here.

      Oddly your the second person to say that. When using the image uploader are you using the red camera icon to the top right of the editor ? If so what is happening ? Everytime I test it, it works. When an image uploads you have to select the image again in the uploader for it to be inserted .

      If it is that behaviour that confuses people, I will have it altered

        Yeah, Red Camera Icon

        1) Click on Icon
        2) Click on Area to being up File Selector
        3) Select Image to Upload and click Upload
        4) Select small thumbnail of Image
        5) Click Insert Selected Image
        6) Nothing shows up in Editor
        7) Click on Red Camera Icon again, and image shows up there as selected with extra fields, but not in Editor at all; nor in Preview or an actual post

        P.S.: I attached an image to this post, and will leave it if you want to give it a look.

                      Well, I work from home anyway, but now I also have 2 teenagers home from school, and my wife has to work from home now. She's an IT help desk person herself, so it was easy for her to get running from home. About 99% of her support tickets have been setting up other people to work from home. She said you can hear screaming kids in the background of a lot of her calls.

                      For the teenagers, we decided that even though they don't have to go to school, we are going to try and keep a normal Monday-Friday schedule of waking up early and having a routine. The kids and I, have a morning meeting at 8am to plan out the day into blocks of chores, schoolwork, and recreation activities. Basically I let them decide what they want to do that day and they write it on a white board. They aren't allowed to stream videos or online game until after 5pm so that our bandwidth doesn't get choked up while my wife is working.

                      My son and I built a rig for his poor friend out of some rather nice older leftover parts we had laying around. We bought about $10 worth of games from GOG (so many you can get for $10), and we are getting them installed. I think tomorrow we will be delivering that.

                      My wife and I used to go to the gym every day on our lunch break. Now we just do our strength training at home and jog at the park when she gets done working. I swear it's already summer weather here on the Gulf Coast, and Winter isn't even officially over yet. Been running around shirtless at the park and sweating my ass off...

                      Making new routines keeps you sane.

                        Well I set up a quick ExtremeHW Minecraft 1.15.2 Survival (non-PvP) server at:

                        minecraft.axihub.ca

                        Just using the default port so you can just plug that in as your server address and it should work, or plug that in to your browser to see a "near real-time" map of the server as you are playing.

                        Spawn island is protected so just do a "/kit tools" to get a basic set of tools with a boat" and go have fun.

                          Ohhhhh Nice ! I will have to get MC again and delve in. Admittedly I am more of an FPS kinda guy but I certainly enjoy a little MC.

                            FireFall was the last FPS/MMO/RPG I truly for into, Destiny 2 hasn't quite filled that void yet. But a lot of the original developers of FireFall have moved on to create a new game called Em8er that looks pretty damn promising, hoping they continue getting enough support to make it a reality.

                            MineCraft is definitely a fun time sink though, either explore, or build massive creations alone or as a group, or try to beet the "bosses" with as little equipment as possible.

                              I never actually played destiny ! I know...naughty me. Will have to give it a blast sometime. Yeah MC is interesting as you can approach it from several ways depending on your fancy which I think has certainly lent itself to its longevity.
