General Chat / Re: Common admin mistakes
« on: October 24, 2014, 12:31 pm »
One more thing!

DO NOT BAN YOURSELF! IT IS ADMIN ABUSE! YOU WILL BE PUNISHED!
No it's not, just don't do it excessively.  My definition of admin abuse: Abusing your admin powers to gain an unfair advantage over regular players, punishing people for invalid reasons or punishing without sufficient proof (because your friend told you, so it must be true).  Banning yourself is harmless, just as long as it's not done constantly (otherwise it clogs up chat)

Explosive, I'd also like to take this opportunity to informally warn you to wind your neck in, it is not your place (or anyone's for that matter) to threaten someone not to come on the server because you don't like or agree with them.  This also applies to your attitude towards the higher ranks on the servers.

Keep the thread on topic please, this is for the October meetup.  If you want to make one in the US then please make a seperate thread.  Users who have derailed have received a forum warning.

Hide those plastic chairs, I'll probably end up kicking the leg when someone's on it... (most likely Jamie).

Also looking at this one

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B009ZQ5HW6/ref=asc_df_B009ZQ5HW63261004?smid=A3KGNLL200UCI2&tag=pgmp-469-100-20&linkCode=df0&creative=395109&creativeASIN=B009ZQ5HW6

Which one do you think would be better for gaming?

Also, what does single and dual slot mean?
A duel slot is simply a thicker card that will take up space from the expansion slot below it (meaning you won't be able to use that slot).  The extra bulk from duel cards tends to be due to beefier cooling systems.  Look at my previous post as well though, you don't want to buy a GPU then realise you can't put it into a PCI slot ;).

If it's just a normal PCI slot then no, it needs to be a PCIe one.  Could you perhaps take a picture of the slot?  Or link your motherboard?

AutoMerge: August 09, 2014, 10:47 pm
Just to clarify with a picture from inside my own case.  The slot shown in red is a PCI slot and won't physically fit a graphics card, PCI slots link with the southbridge chipset of your motherboard which is too slow for a graphics card.  PCI/southbridge is used for sound, network cards and hard drives which aren't very demanding of bandwidth.
Spoiler
As graphics card is very demanding and as such needs to be connected to the northbridge part of your motherboard, this is where PCIe comes in (the E stands for express) as it is much faster and direct connection to the CPU and RAM.

Not only in gmod there are funny stuff, also on the webpage itself

TTT Suggestions / Re: Suggestions rules!

The second one was getting pointshop points on kill. Traitors get 3 points per kill, Innocent/detective 5-7 points.
And losing points when you get it wrong? ;).  T's should get 2 at max though if it's implemented.

Suggestions and Questions / Re: Pakeets Pill Pack
« on: June 02, 2014, 07:14 pm »
Oh you don't like it ruining RP?
Spoiler
If anyone asks for pills they simply get turned into a cone or shocked, they will be given to responsible people when appropriate and when a root wants to off their own back.  Supers and below are unable to spawn them.

AutoMerge: June 02, 2014, 07:16 pm
Also I think you're exaggerating when you claim people go around the server RDMing everyone as the overseer.  If a super did that then I'd honestly demote them on the spot.

So Giraffe is just expected to start cracking and rapidly receive lead up his man flower?

If you're outside your base with a shotgun, then you are a threat to someone raiding it so the kill is valid.

Just remember this build is on a budget, but you might as well throw this cooler in if you're worried about heat, it's very good for the price.

Check this out.

Also, I love how that site uses this picture:

That cable management makes me want to cry.

The lua code in the virus checked to see what OS the server was running on. If it was running Windows, it would run and spread the virus, if it was any other OS (Linux, Mac) it would do nothing.

Luckily ByB runs servers on a Linux OS, so players that joined with the virus didn't spread it further to other players on our server.

Sent from my Nexus 5
The OS check was on the client, not the server.  We were immune because we're not silly enough to put an rcon password in server.cfg, there have been loads of exploits in regard to the rcon password in server.cfg in the past, it wouldn't surprise me if there are a few more hiding out there either.

Interesting idea, however what you are suggesting is like one "text" if they can only send one message, it should be more like three messages.  I like the idea, I may have a poke around with it and see what I can come up with.

Yeah.. Have fun causing small fractures in the battery before turning it on and making it go boom ;)
