  1. The last Workstation thread I could find was the pinned one from 2009. Now, I don't know about everyone else here, but I have most certainly changed my Battle-station up a bit since then. So here's to hoping this one is as successful as the previous threads. Mods, feel free to edit this as you please.

    SteamOS, are you going to try it?

    Ran Steam OS for a bit on a franken-computer in the living room.. q6600, gtx460, 8GB of 800MHz RAM that were all lying around collecting dust. It worked fine, but the drivers weren't the best (I imagine they'll eventually fix this.). Didn't get very good frame rates in most games. Out of my 250-ish steam games, a respectable 78 were linux playable. Ended up just modding a very basic windows install to boot straight to Big Picture. All my games run fine now and I even have the Steam Music beta. tl;dr If you want SteamOS, just use a minimalistic Windows install in BP Mode.

    Star Wars

    I'm hoping this will be like x-wing vs. tiefighter was. Man, I miss that game.

    Raspberry Pi

    I don't know if you count SSH/DNS server as "neat", but that's what I use my Raspberry Pi for.

    And speaking of which! We are now on 1.6.2!

    1.6.2 will actually be up by this weekend hopefully.

    Bump for update to servers!
  9. Huh. I don't doubt your networking prowess, Nerm. I'll have to look into it a bit. Trying to wrap my head around how you'd do it while waiting for food at IHOP isn't working though lol.
  10. Unfortunately, that won't work. The only way you'll be able to pull what you're looking to do off is if you have 2 different WAN IP's, or "Public IP's". Reason being, both of those names are going to resolve to your WAN IP without regard to your port. Your A record won't have the option to change what port it's going to resolve to. Edit: This is all assuming you're behind a NATed router, which most people are.

    Trying to setup DDNS

    Update considered abusive means that the frequency in which your device is announcing its WAN IP to DynDNS can get your account temporarily banned. Consider dropping your check frequency to maybe once or twice a week.

    Do you use a NAS at home?

    Yup. Two. Backup to one, backup that backup to the other.
  13. I'm the only Debian/KDE person here?? I guess that's why Linux is awesome. (My second distro would be Arch...but its suuuper close to being No.1) Edit: Debian because it's what I learned on, so I just never gave it up. KDE because I don't like pretending I'm using a Mac (lol gnome). Arch because it's configurable as heck. No one person's Arch install is the same as anothers

    In the vanilla sense, not too much. There's the wither boss, some new types of blocks, trees, etc. It's essentially the same. My friends and I go on stints of playing it then don't touch it for ages. This server is fairly active this time around, though.

    Yeah, Bukkit doesn't play nice with 1.5 yet. It's probably going to be a while. I can send you my 1.4.7 jar if you want to hop on.
  16. Nephilumos


    Awh, and quartz looks so nice....I'm going to have to look into seeing how compatible these bukkit plugins are with 1.5. Give me a couple days.
  17. Nephilumos


    D'awww I dun wanna go through that hassle yet D: it was just a redstone update, wasn't it?
  18. Nephilumos


    Haha definitely. Once you've got a plot of land you'll be able to come back to it whenever and no one can mess with it.

    Raspberry Pi

    I made mine into a portable ssh tunneling device. I'm not very creative.

    windows 8 for gaming desktop

    All the games that work on Windows 7, in all likelihood work in Windows 8. That said, I've never had any problems with any of my 100+ games on Steam.

    When gaming on your pc what do you prefer?

    Headphones are more immersive. Especially for games like Amnesia.

    Single GTX 680 w/ Tri-Monitors

    I <3 my tri-monitor setup on my 4GB 670. Though, the only game I really play with all three monitors is GRID, and that game is old enough that my 670 eats it up without a second thought.

    What brand keyboard do you use?

    Razer Black Widow Ultimate <3

    NVIDIA Project Shield

    Minus the live streaming of your PC games over your home network (Assuming you've got a recent nVidia card). That's really the only thing that piques my interest in this at all, and that's only marginally.
