  • I would play in the order that the games were released, so you get understand the story the way Kojima intended it.
  • The best way is definitely to wipe the entire hard drive like others have said. I heard that system restore files can get infected as well. Be sure to run a scan on the files that you backup when you get your OS installed again.
  • I know someone whose friend got the FBI virus on Windows 7. They couldn't get into safe mode because it kept on restarting the computer when they tried. Sometimes the FBI virus would show up during the safe mode loading screen and it would have a cu…
  • Windows 8 has been running fantastic for me so far. I don't use any of the Metro apps and I use the start menu replacement StartIsBack. Boot-up time is noticeably faster as well. The way I have it set up, it provides a similar experience as Windows …
  • I also thank you for the summary, Lincoln. Glue is great! I've used it on a couple of websites and the community loves the forum features and the writers love WordPress for nice article management. I'm still wondering, though, what are the bad point…
  • Thanks for all the tips everyone. I didn't know IRC was that exploitable and DDoS kiddies are the worst! :eek:
  • I think that's a WP/Vanilla bridge issue - posts created from WP have a timestamp in the future, when you couldn't have seen it. A certain number of minutes or hours later, it falls down/can be marked read, etc. @Lincoln: It looks like the DateUpdat…
  • @BHHammy, I believe that most Minecraft players within its major age group are idiots. :shake:
  • I ran a 24/7 Tekkit server last month and it was fun at first, but not a lot of new people joined and I found out that was because they didn't know how or couldn't bother to install the Technic launcher.
  • Doesn't look half as bad to me.
  • Tried my best with optimizing the httpd config, but it still seemed to use too much resources. I switched to Nginx (by itself; not as a proxy) and PHP-FPM and now everything's much faster and there are less processes along with lower memory usage. …
  • I'm not running a GUI. I'm guessing that my problem is related to httpd.conf prefork or worker settings. If so, is there anything I should change with my config below? StartServers 1 MinSpareServers 1 MaxSpareServers 5 ServerLimit …
  • Thanks, everyone. :D I choose CentOS and Apache because they're the easiest for me to use and configure. I'll consider using Nginx as a reverse caching proxy in the future. I do have a problem with the Apache processes though. Either they're using …
  • Source Filmmaker looks like an amazing tool. I like how you can have a Mama Luigi model in SF. I hope to give it a try in the future.
  • My hosting setup is a quad core Xeon with 4GB RAM and a RAID1 file system.
  • Same goes for PIPA. What happened to those bills?
  • Oh man, not again. :hrm:
  • I thought that LogBlock works on the latest Bukkit. If not, then I suggest trying out CoreProtect.
  • Didn't find any but I do believe that the i7-2820QM out performs the i7-960.
  • I believe there are two packages of the T2i and T3i. One comes with the 18-55 and the other 18-135. That second Sigma is nice, but the first Sigma sounds good for a first time lens. I've been reading up and hearing that because of the crop body sens…
  • Interesting review. Nothing new learned from it though. Good advise again, Snarkasm. Just wondering, would that Sigma 50-200mm be better than the Canon EF-S 18-135mm kit lens? I believe they end up being the same price with the T2i (kit / no kit). …
  • Would the noise be audible if I used an external microphone such as a hot shoe attached shotgun microphone? Those lenses look cool. Also, does Amazon charge tax? Haven't used them in a while and thanks for the affiliate links. If only if I could …
  • The Nikon + adapter would probably set me back to $175. The Canon one seems to be $135. I can see that because I don't have any lenses right now, that a zoom lens might be more beneficial. The viewfinder adapter, I'm guessing, is probably going t…
  • Thanks. That's some good advise. I might as well have to get a large SD card. I don't think I'll really be needing the swivel screen a lot but only rarely so I don't think it's worth it but I'm going to have to give it a try in person to get the fee…
  • Interesting. Best of luck, kryyst. :) Would love to see your new Vanilla forum when you've finished setting it up. I agree with your reasoning. Vanilla's main index "latest posts" output will really push it to users that new activity is happening on…
  • Sounds like a plan. :) Be careful though, depending on the type of encryption used on passwords on Webwiz, your users might have to reset their password. If phpBB's Webwiz converter has a custom auth_webwiz.php file, then your users would have to lo…
  • @Enverex: Nice forums, and awesome footer image! :D @kryyst: Yes, Vanilla does support PMs as I have found out. It's called the "conversations" feature. Same thing basically. I might be able to setup a forum soon using the WordPress SSO plugin wi…
  • Looks very nice and clean. :) What I realized sadly, was that when converting MyBB -> vBulletin, that passwords won't work without resetting them. I thought it was the Vanilla importer's fault but it was indeed vB's ImpEx.
  • It's good to know that you're very into Vanilla. I just noticed that you've written about converting over to Vanilla in a blog post a couple years ago on this site. I don't know if Vanilla's main purpose is to reinvent the wheel and provide a more s…
  • Your reasoning behind that choice, Thrax? I have successfully exported a MyBB forum to it. I'm having trouble with the Wordpress ProxyConnect plugin though because all of the users are located on Vanilla now and not WordPress so the login integratio…
