LT. Commander (4/8)

  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. [RP] October 8, 302x Unknown Ship Deep Space, Terran Quadrant A small, insignificant craft makes its way through the void. Its crew consists of only one man. Alec Nova. Alone. In the middle of nowhere. Once again. He listens patiently to a news broadcast regarding last night's Gammulan attack on Terran forces near Polaris. "It's all changed," he rambles out loud to himself. "And yet, nothing's different, is it? They push, we push back. But they're getting closer. We're sinking deeper. We're losing it. I'm losing it. No wait, I've already lost it... We lost it. I lost it..." He pauses for a minute, then clenches his teeth down, as if bracing himself for the imminent arrival of piercing pain. "Yozora." Years had passed since his last combat foray. And yet, a thousand burning images flood his mind as if it all happeened today. [/RP] I'm ashamed I can't keep my own word when I say I wish to kinda RP here on my own. Things have changed since Alec Nova has been around. Blades is gone, and time has taken its toll on countless others. I've been thinking of an RP context to put this all into. If you can disregard the first post to this thread, maybe I can make a little something happen here. Though I doubt I'll ever attain the glory that people had in the old days, it's worth a shot. I miss Orion Fleet dearly. Though I randomly came across retired Cmdr. Akuma Minako some time ago online. (It's a small world, and DeviantART is a big population center of the online world.) Apparently she's on a trip to Japan, God bless her. Aside from randomly running into her DA site and hearing from some people from time to time on AIM and lurking around here on and off, I've been out of it. It feels weird because I really just can't stand leaving this place. Every time I realize how long I'm gone, I feel worse about it. Heh. Leave me on the inactive list, but FYI, I'm around. Nova, over and out.
  7. Eh, I freaked out when I saw the headline and some of the posts here. Then I actually read the article. No, no, I really don't like cops. Really. But 1) Soback is correct that the headline is totally misleading and 2) the kid was freaking messed. Would you rather they shot him? Come on. The article is to devoid of depth to actually give us the situation. Give it a break.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. Christ. I started writing a bit more fanfiction and I just realized this. (Started getting back into the swing of playing UC, so I started writing some RP-ish stuff.) Hm... Nova should be 50 by then. Bah, not a problem. Not until the next game.

    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 ]
  13. 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
  14. 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 ]
