I fucked up ...

   Damnit, I screwed up. Cities can only have as many wildlands occupied. Even though I was very aware of it and even made a note to remind myself, I still forgot to 'disband' a wildland so I would be sure to occupy the new one.
   Here is the situation: I just leveled up to State Minister so I can finally create two sub cities. Since I am way from my alliance, I decided to move all across the map and join them. Sending troops taking over 4 hrs to reach destination. One legend is on its way to occupy and then fortify after to create this new sub city. Another is on its way after, but taking 3 more hrs. The first legend reaches the flatland and wins the fight, but returns home because max amount of occupied wildlands has been reached. So damn, I forgot to disband a wildland just before it reached destination. This mistake took me over 3 hrs more to occupy without mistakes by the next legend. Used an item to speed it up, but stil 2:50 hrs wasted.
   Here are the screenshots ... dang, I could cry over that mistake, but we will all be able to laugh about it later. How could I forget, why didn't I check my notes, why oh why ... grrrr. Was a long night already, now even longer, but I have set my mind on it and want that spot to join friends/alliance.

LOL

Minecraft 1.2.4 ... hip hip !

Minecraft 1.2.4 is out. | Bukkit Forums
[IMG] Mojang have just released an update to Minecraft, bringing us to 1.2.4. This update is primarily a bug fix release but does include some nice...

   Yay, should I be happy or sad now. Happy for yet another new update, thus supposedly being better, less bugs, new fun stuff. Sad, because this means yet again outdated servers, hard work on fixing it all, hoping all mods and plugins update as well and whatever else ...

War of Legends

Started playing War of Legends about 2 weeks ago. First thing I noticed was lack of music, which is ok though, because I usually have my own music playing anyway. I do like building strategy games and it seems easy to start and get familiar with the game by just following tasks. The first week you get a protected status and building goes faster. Nice to know so you won't get slaughtered straight away. Now I am no longer protected and I kinda chickened out, so I joined an Alliance today. The game seems fun enough, although it does get boring a bit since building to higher levels takes more and more time. Really need something else to do next to it, which is no problem at all since I love to multitask anyway. So yeah, not a great game, but if you love MMO strategy and building then this game might please you. For me it's just killing time and some in-game chat is fun as well (I am usually chatty ... lol).

Minecraft - Modding




Nice to know that in the future adding mods will become a lot easier. Would be about frikkin time. I have been running a server and always wanted to add mods to the content. There is a shitload of available mods out there and they truly add to the game experience. Too bad there are a few problems though.
  • Mods are version specific.
  • Client needs to have the same mods installed.
  • Not all mods are compatible.

Mass Effect continued ...

Oi oi oi, got Mass Effect now ...
Been playing for quite a few hours now and yep, I truly love the game. This will mean lots of gaming hours since its a trilogy and plenty of downloadable content (DLC) to go with it. I should however be working on my website some more though ... lol. Oh well, I will soon enough, if I can withstand my new addiction thats is ... hehehe.

Mass Effect ...

I haven't been doing anything last few days when it comes to programming and working on the website. Just didn't feel like it at all ... sigh. Not been feeling too well and couldn't find the energy or will to do so. However I really should be doing some work soon again, since I am still planning to start streaming on Justin TV April 1st.
Last few days I have been watching someone play Mass Effect. Wow, I am intruiged by that game. Great story, wonderful graphics, wish I could afford to buy it and play myself. I got on the JTV/Twitch channel by accident. When searching for a channel to watch, it showed on the main page and I was kind of bored watching any more Minecraft, so I clicked. I got stuck watching ...
There was something else though that caught my attention and made me stick for the last few days. We seem to have something in common as I understood after visiting her website and having a look around on her forum. Will try to get in touch some time soon.
Anyways, I believe this is one hell of a great game which first release was in November 2007 and now has 2 sequels as well as of March 2012. All three parts together make up for a fantastic story and many hours of gameplay. There is also a lot of Downloadable Content (DLC) available which will only add to the gameplay/story. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mass_Effect
Too bad this game has been going on for a while already, but if I ever get a chance to buy it, I certainly will. For now I just enjoy watching it and reading up on the story to try understand what exactly is going on in this game. If you are curious, I certainly recommend having a look for yourself. Catreina (Jenni) played ME3 first, then started playing all over again starting with ME1. To watch the archives or have a look Live on her channel, visit: http://justin.tv/catreina or http://twitch.tv/catreina. I know that by watching a full play through and reading all about this game spoils the whole story of course, but I don't care, I just love it anyway :)

Creating a website and everything else fun?

Ok, enough coding for today. All those languages (markup/styling/scripting) like HTML, CSS, JavaScript, BBCode, php, Java, mIRC, XML, VBA, XHTML and whatever else. Not to forget all those different APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) used for Facebook, YouTube, Justin TV, Google and so on ... bla bla bla ... Will figure out jQuery tomorrow ... sigh and pffffttt and ugghhhh.

<muahhh> Nitey nite all ... </muahhh>

A lot of work done ...

Finally got a lot of work done, mostly on my JTV channel. Lay-out and design pretty much looks the way I like it now. All the hard work has been done and I managed to use some available free space I haven't seen anyone else use. Instead of the main column used for the About section (640px wide), I managed to use an additional 320px column below the Related Videos part as well :-)
I also managed to redirect my forum to my own custom domain. Was hard since I am pretty much new to this and I do not have any DNS support to help me out.
Next I need to work some more on my chat bot and set up a new Minecraft server. After that I can finally work some more on my Xsplit software used for streaming. I need an intro, outro and a lot of other custom scenes to help me out streaming.
Oh and not to forget, I need to be working some more on my YouTube channel and prolly set up a Facebook page, although I haven't decided on FB yet, since I truly dislike it. Too bad it's such a huge community and I am almost forced to use it.

Keep you all up-to-date ...

Muahhhh
