    Since I'm in uni, basically all my nights are late. I feel like I get the most work done during the night.


  • My sleep schedule has been messed up lately, the easter holidays done it 😛

    mp3 hahaha i'm old dude it was the 80s/90s and we had them on cassette

    haha what did you play? I've played guitars in a few bands up to now, these days I'm too focused on building epic forum software to go all out partying all night 😛


  • I guess I'm a cheat. I will always be the last one here for while given I'm stuck out in Germany/UK for about 10 weeks. lol

    Holidays FIXED mine for a bit. All the days on the road to family and returning, etc. got me sleeping like a "normal person" if I dare utter that phrase publicly.

    Singer. 80s rock and old school metal. We started doing covers of stuff like Winger, Quiet Riot, Whitesnake, Metallica, etc. in the late 80s. Then started doing our own shit but life, marriage, family, etc. took everyone out one by one. By age 30 I was the last man standing hahah. Then I joined their ranks. 3 of us will be living within 30 minutes of each other by end of summer with the 4th a recluse in his sisters house. Who knows, maybe we reunite!

    I have like a half dozen guitars but I never learned more than a couple of chords. That's one of my goals is to finally learn how to at least do a little backing/rhythm guitar.

    Winger, Quiet Riot, Whitesnake, Metallica

    Love Metallica and Whitesnake. First song I tried to learn on the guitar was Master of Puppets. That one took a while 😛

    What guitars do you have? Currently I've got a strat and a no-name Ibanez made of some seriously awesome wood in my opinion. The latter has a humbucker that sounds so good I preferred that over my mate's les paul for shows back in the day.

    EDIT: that video hurt my brain.

    I sold a strat last year that i had since the 80s. right now i have a decent electric acoustic from washburn, a cheap washburn bass for fun, a purple bc rich warlock from the 80s, and then another bc rich warlock but it's acrylic red (the see through ones). i think that's it right now. i sold a bunch of shit the other year clearing out space.

    i've got recording gear, lots of other small instruments from uke's to imported hand made drum with goatskin pulled over the top. i don't know why i have all this shit or how some of it even came into my possession. but it's all here taking up space.

    i'm in the process of moving right now, taking place this summer. not a clue in the world where all this shit is going to go. i have a feeling the attic is going to have to get climate controlled so i have an additional storage area.

    wow you've got a bich, I've always dreamed of owning one (back in the day when I used to play metal). Probably the guitar I've wanted the most was van halen's ibanez:

    That, yeah damn. When I get the money I'm totally going to copy that 😄 What's a singer doing with a BC rich anyways?

    This thread is still going 👍

    @psychobunny retired early tonight apparently he has a driving test tomorrow. If you are in the Toronto area you might want to stay indoors tomorrow 😆

    @baris I'll keep that in mind 😄

    You mentioned you do MMO's baris, what games do you play?

  • NodeBB

    Haven't played a lot of MMOs lately the latest few I played were Rift and Tera. I am keeping an eye on EQ Next maybe will play that once it comes out.

    Mostly playing Civ 5 and the latest Divinity these days.

  • Plugin & Theme Dev

    Civ 5 is a great game, although I've been pulled away to Europa Universalis IV lately for my empire building gameplay.

    As for MMO's I tend to stick with EVE Online exclusively just because it's fairly time and energy consuming.

    You excited for Civilization: Beyond Earth?

  • NodeBB

    @Tanner not sure about Beyond Earth, it looks more like a reskin of civ 5 than a standalone game.

  • Plugin & Theme Dev

    It definitely has that feel, some mods have gone that far in some cases. It's definitely running off of the same engine, we know that at least.

  • GNU/Linux Admin

    I have Civ V too 😄 Bought it when it was on Steam summer sale, except I didn't buy any expacs, so I am playing vanilla 👎

  • Plugin & Theme Dev

    Vanilla isn't that great once you've got Brave New World and Gods & Kings under your belt. They've got some pretty good additions to the gameplay but the DLC is expensive at the end of the day.

  • GNU/Linux Admin

    Hahaha it wasn't expensive during the steam sale 😁 ... but I cheaped out and only bought vanilla instead of the complete game (for a measly $10 more)
