  1. Primarily in response to this thread: I suppose it's time I tendered my resignation. I've been inactive enough to be administratively retired anyway, right? Might as well make it official. I may pop up in an RP or something as a fleetmember, but I've definitely been lacking time to work on actual organization or MP. I miss the heyday of the fleet, the RPs, ActiveWorlds (Epsilon 5, Silk, and I were newbies then), the old Orion forum, the newer forum that Blades set up when this one was full of drama. It's been a marvelous run serving with you guys. ;x I'll stop in every so often, as I've been doing (I tend to read up on happenings every few weeks). I think you guys will do just fine with this baby. Until then, fellas.
  2. I'm going to college. Undercover? Sure, you could call it that.
  3. I figured I'd stop by and see how things are goin'. Haven't been any postings around here since December, you know. For one reason or another, I've found myself writing fiction again in my idle time, and for some reason that always brings me back here to lurk. Amazes me how many names we have around that I don't recognize; amazes me yet how many I do. (Christ, it's been four years and I haven't forgotten this community.) I've had ideas running around my head since back when I was active here, and I think I'm about ready to mature them into some form of decent writing. I feel like taking it all in again--the feel of the boards here. Seemed like the crickets were chirping over here on Orion. Figured I'd start something new. How and where has everyone else been? I know some of you old guys still lurk every so often.

    My Resignation

    *salutes* Sorry to see one of the Fleet's more prominent figures go. I'm quite sorry that I myself cannot be more active--I'm also in that number of folks who have far too much happening all the time now. -.-
  5. I'm here. Just lurking about...
  6. I've got a bunch of programs on that list and haven't had any trouble with any of them. DivxPlayer Kazaa Norton Antivirus 2003 - Windows Security Center sees it but it can't do that integrated monitoring thing. Yahoo Messenger Zone Alarm Granted, I'm using the latest versions of these. Latest version of StyleXP also supports WinXP SP2. Browsing this list and checking the version number, I can pretty much tell you that most of these have patches out or newer versions, most of which have been released over the course of the past few months. My brother had some trouble with Warcraft III, but I never had a chance to really check it out. It might've been Zone Alarm, because I also installed that along with SP2.
  7. Never saw original thread, but I'll make a guess. Spare Parts. You need to make sure you have one of every item needed to repair that system.

    Well, I don't even know who's doing what and who's really in charge of what, besides the fact that Badger's got the site in hand.

    Photoshop proficiency? Got it. Same with XHTML/CSS uber fluency. Basic PHP fluency. Ameteur photography. I'm reporting for duty. And I've only gotten better since I last disappeared. http://mtigas.blogdns.net/samuke/ (my current WIP site, XHTML 1.1 compliant, server on my computer so it goes down when I shut down) http://madmannova.deviantart.com/gallery/ (current gallery of random photos and stuff) If you guys need something on the site, don't hesistate to talk to me. IM me on AIM: HTMLjedi I'll also start using ICQ for the meantime for you guys: 123512799 Oh, and what's this? You guys might need that. ---------- IMO, flash might be excessive for navigation or logos. Especially if you're going effects and stuff. (heh, one of my old sites was like that.) I think I'll throw around some ideas on how to get navigation pretty nice on the site. The generic Station Login from the game isn't very asthetic... I'll think about it. Been working on a ton of other things, heh. Starting school in two weeks. Yeah. It's gonna be like that. I'm back by request, guys... [ 08-04-2004, 04:16 AM: Message edited by: Cmdr Nova ]
  10. quote:From: Mike 'Nova' Tigas To: GMAN, Grayfox, $iLk Subject: Re: URGENT Orion Fleet Business Unfortunaltely I'm in the middle of a three week trip to Germany, so I can't exactly provide you with the OF Handbook at the moment. My computer has VNC on it (remote control, heh), I just need to call up home and have them turn on the thing if you need it ASAP. Now, I hate to say it, but I think... My best times at Orion have probably passed. Probably. I say this because I've been living more hectically and crap for the past year and it's only going to get worse through my senior year of high school. (I'm taking like... 5 AP classes?) Simply put, I cannot be as active as I used to be. Or rather, I can't really be active much, period. I've got school, I need to get a job, I've got a bunch of shit to do around usually, and a girlfriend who lives an hour away from my place. (Been going out since last August if that's any extra reason that I've been inactive recently. ;P ) I noticed what the SC wrote, but I'm afraid that I currently can't help you guys much. Not at the moment at least. (I'll still possibly be travelling around when I return from Germany... Until about August, heh.) I wish to remain on the roster for now, albeit not in any important command positions. I mean, I've been more or less an office boy for Orion anyway, right? *sheepish grin* Kinda feel like I'm letting you guys down, but I'm 7 timezones from home right now, half drunk, and I don't see what I can do in the near future. But, I'll have the handbook uploaded or e-mailed as soon as I can. Best regards to all of you. (It's been quite some time, heh.) Nova, over and out. Cmdr.

As a result you need to reregister in the Fleet DB. Further more, I need to know the status of the Orion Fleet Manual. Please respond to everyone in this email. If you don't wish to be part of Orion anymore, I respectfully ask you to forward whatever you have done with the Manual to Grayfox. If you do still want to be part of Orion, then I'm telling you now to get your shit wired, and report in!!!! Miller Out. Strategic Commander Greg Miller Orion Fleet Leader GCV-Sark
  11. 1) Don't PM me telling me to "help (you) with (your) post 'troop deployment". Hell, I didn't even frelling know which forum it was under. Hrm... Nah. But you're already inching it. PMing moderators for a frelling game answer is NOT proper conduct here. 2) RTFM. 3) Look around on the boards. It has a search feature. With that aside, I'll give you your answer provided you follow the above FROM NOW ON or face severe penalties? Savvy? Let's begin. Welcome aboard, newbie. Info covering items already in the manual, removed [ 04-25-2004, 10:53 AM: Message edited by: Supreme Cmdr ]
  12. Roger. I think I'll work on some Fleet documentation one of these days. --- ...Two battle groups. It is ironic that Tsumani and Deterrence were once the entirety of the Fleet. Deathbringer was also once great. And the Shadow Company. Aye... We float across the empty space, and it looks desolate. But glory will once again be ours.
  13. Reporting in again. Now in posession of a nice, new copy of UC, thanks to a random trip to EB and some birthday money.
  14. You know, Ep5, you were like a brother to me in the fleet, back in the heyday of it all. *salute* --- quote:Originally posted by Shingen: Well that crap's it! I was needing a Galcommie presence in the current indie RP, and now I'm screwed. You declare defeat too easily. ;p
  15. Still alive. Been very busy IRL. Haven't seen Blades around... But I haven't been around very much myself. Hope he's doing okay--someone might wanna do a quick lookup of him anyways.
  16. You cannot buy extra assets that you can't use (fighters when you can't launch fighters) and use them. But you can buy replacements in the event the assets are destroyed. You can go into your own assets, like the shuttles and OCs, and use those, AFAIK. Your question was worded somewhat badly. Your primary asset is your CC. That is your asset, so to speak. You cannot switch assets. You can utilize the sub-assets therein, however.
  17. Some of these are so terrible they're funny. I'll escalate the situation to a point where it's not even funny anymore. Blerm, this is partially your fault, because you reminded me of some jokes a friend of mine had. quote:Your mom is so stupid she tried to use substitution to find the definite integral of f(x)=x^2 over the interval 0 to (pi)^(1/3). Your Mom is so stupid she thought that e^(pi*i) was equal to -2. Your Mom is so fat, when she walks she sheds vortices so large that modern synoptic-scale models include her as a factor. your mom is so stupid she thought that the indefinite integral of 4x^3 was x^4. your mom is so stupid she though that the partial derivative of v = 2xyw^2 + ln x * z/3 + e^(3y) was just: 4xyw + 1/x +I don't even understand the last two. So there.
  18. Heh. I'm 16 years old. I can feel for this. And I feel pissed. quote: Because if the kid is out of control, it is the parents fault, sorry, but that is the way I feel, and to punish the kids like this for the parents failure is insane.I agree with that as well. I feel so pissed off after reading that. You want to make your teenager trust you? Why don't you trust them first? Why don't you at the VERY LEAST respect their rights? Just a little bit? I agree, incarceration would do nothing better. However, a true attempt to get into the psyche of one of these people would probably reveal something behind it--like parental problems in childhood. Bad kids don't have a rage for no reason. They either grew up to have a vengence, grew up uncaring about morals, or grew up with bad influence. Parental properties. quote:Chappuis: "People who say this place is too harsh, they've never had their own troubled kids. If you criticise it you don't know what the hell you are talking about. And if you think you have had experience, then I challenge the success of your experience."Bullshit. Does he even have any CLUE as to why the kids are troubled in the FIRST PLACE? Seriously. If I didn't have anything else to do, and if it was possible for me to, I'd open my own center with different ideals. 1) Dealing with an issue isn't simply getting through it and feeling indifferent about it. 2) Trust is hella important. 3) Care is hella important. When these kids grow up, how the hell are THEIR kids gonna act? I'm almost afraid to know what kinds of influences they'll have on their kids as they grow up. These people are brainwashed into one way of thinking--cold, emotionless, and uncontemplative. This is cruel and unusual punishment, and it's not even really the child that completely deserves it. It parallels Plato's Allegory of the Cave. (The Republic, Book 7.) The best solution for people that you believe are lower than you, or are less deserving than you, is to keep them ignorant. This is, if you're pushing for an "ideal" situation--ideal for your intents, not for theirs. I hate this with a passion. I've always been pissed off at every little thing that people do wrongly to children. Since I was like 8 years old, I've felt strongly about children's rights. IMO, children should have the same rights as adults, in many respects. In this case, they need the right to at the least, choose--the hard way (more traditional counseling, including actual family counseling, or whatever the situation warrants) or throw your childhood away at Tranquility? Seemingly damned both ways (to them), at least giving a choice would help. I hardly think that shipping your kid out of country, without warning, is very legal at all. And even if it is, it shouldn't. And if not, it's still very wrong. quote:I meet a student's aunt visiting from Texas. 'Oh, you would not believe the change in her! It's amazing, the way they change a kid's life. She's so polite now, I wouldn't know her. They all look so happy!' A song by Usher is playing, and the words burn through the hard Caribbean heat. 'You remind me of a girl that I once knew. See her face whenever I look at you.' The Texan's niece pauses her dancing. As she stoops to take a drink of water, I catch her face, and think she looks like the saddest girl in the world."They all look so happy!..." "She looks like the saddest girl in the world..." These people know how to be slaves to their parents, how to be slaves to the system they're in. They've learned not to think, not to learn. It makes me sad. (I'm one of those really deep thinking contemplative types.) Having people highly restricted, punished, tortured, etc. really pisses me off, when the circumstances causing that don't warrant it. I agree with making the kids better. But I'd rather them not even think about going Tranquility. Shit, just kill the kid instead, if you're gonna force them there. Give them up into adoption or something. Goddamnit. Give them a choice at the very least; you're throwing away their youth like a jail sentence.

  21. It's not the Osiris, it's whatever ship the protagonists are in in the other parts of the trailer. Considering the Nebuchadnezzar was also destroyed in Reloaded... Yeah.
  22. Yeah, a friend of mine showed it to me last night. Damn... I'm in sheer anticipation now. Warner Bros. apparantly set something up where they're releasing the movie at the exact same time worldwide, so no one gets it "first". It's like, 9am Eastern, 6am Pacific, 11pm Tokyo, etc. 8am here... Hm, I wonder who's skipping school on November 5th? We're already making plans.
  23. I do not belive you can change the loadout of your AE's gear. You begin with the default gear; that default is based on what career you choose. When it appears you aren't holding any weapons, maybe you haven't switched to your weapons. Press the various number keys (1 through 0) on the top of the keyboard (not the num pad) to switch. Read the manual regarding this.
