There hasn't been a good FPS style game in a while.. nothing that is ground breaking.. If you haven't seen it before, allow me to present - The Division. It looks very very awesome and I'm looking forward to giving it a go. That and the new Far Cry. I enjoyed far Cry 3.. very fun, 4 looks good too.

For your Obsidian heart Krux, I present you with Vantablack!
Caliber, you should go talk to this chap:
Stephen Westland, professor of colour science and technology at Leeds University, told the paper: 'These new materials, they are pretty much as black as we can get, almost as close to a black hole as we could imagine.'
ISEE-3 Reboot ProjectPosted by Krux on Saturday May 31, 2014 @ 12:25pm

They did it!
A group of citizen scientists has successfully established communication with an inactive NASA spacecraft in an attempt to breathe new scientific life into a more than 35-year-old agency mission.
NASA signed a Non-Reimbursable Space Act Agreement (NRSAA) with Skycorp, Inc., in Los Gatos, California, on May 21 that allows the company to contact, and possibly command and control, NASA's International Sun-Earth Explorer-3 (ISEE-3) spacecraft as part of the company's ISEE-3 Reboot Project. On May 29, the project team established two-way communication with the ISEE-3 spacecraft and began commanding it to perform specific functions.
First contact with ISEE-3 was achieved at the Arecibo Radio Observatory in Puerto Rico. The initial contact was a tone followed by specific commands. The team has changed modes so the spacecraft will broadcast telemetry information. Over the coming days and weeks they are planning to assess the spacecraft's overall health and refine the techniques required to fire its engines and bring it back to an orbit near Earth.

zork 1 online error messagePosted by cawa on Monday May 19, 2014 @ 12:58pm

When I play Zork I get all kinds of random places to go - eg from the art gallery to the bank. I also have an error message "404 what now?" I'd like to just quit this game and try to start another but it won't let me. HELP!!
Zork broken?Posted by TheNewAgeGamer on Saturday May 10, 2014 @ 05:28pm

I was playing the zork game, and at a certain point (I think after my first few actions in the dungeon), the game became unplayable. I started to notice that commands I was giving would produce a response that didn't match information about the room I was in - but when I looked up to make sure I had the info right, it had changed. I started randomly typing in directions, and eventually started moving again - but that was the only way I could move.
Then, when I typed in the "look" command repeatedly, the information changed every time.
It appears as if the game was changing what room I was in every time I took an action - making it entirely unplayable.
Whoever runs the website - please fix this; the version on here is really the only one I could find where saving wasn't incredibly laborious...
THCNET ... now with IPv6 supportPosted by Krux on Sunday April 27, 2014 @ 02:23pm

So I had problems logging in earlier, and was trying to figure out why, as I was pretty sure I didn't forget my password. Recently I enabled IPv6 on my network, since you can get free IPv6 tunnels and address space to play with. Since my firewall supported running the tunnel< i figured it would be cool to setup. I've also been using Hurricane Electric's service for quite some time. Set it up, and it works great. It was actually quite a bit easier than I had expected. It was great until I tried to login to THCNET.
After poking at the database and looking at some debugs, it would appear the IP field is not long enough to support the massive IPv6 addresses. That was an easy fix, modifying the size of a couple fields.
Zork bug?Posted by Captain Failboat on Wednesday April 2, 2014 @ 10:41am

Hello there. I've been playing Zork for a few days now. I have logged in, created everything and whatnot, but when I type "SAVE", it /says/ it saved the game. Whenever I close the tab and then re-open Zork later to play the game again, the game doesn't load. And yes, I've typed "Restore," "Restore game," and anything else that I could think of. Nothing will load. Is something up with my computer, or what? Thank you for your help.
