Newbie (1/14)

  1. Noob question.. What is GG I am no fan of him cycling the drives from one location to the other. Anyone heard of Paragon? Think he was referring to my comments. GG= Greengiant.
  2. The big thing for me was growing up I didn't have the latest and greatest hardware/systems to game on. So games like Starcraft were the only games that would run on my PC, add a 56k modem and well... The biggest thing that disappoints me about newer games is how short they are. I can easily finish a campaign of one game in 3-6 hours. The games I grew up with generally seemed harder, and well longer. These days with the multi-million dollar budgets a lot of games are put on strict development timetables, and I think they sacrifice gameplay, story, and length of game for shiny graphics.. I haven't played a game in sometime that has absolutely wowed me and kept me entertained for more than a couple hours lately. I think the last games were Skyrim and the original Dragon Age Origins, those games I spent anywhere from 50-100 hours in them, well worth the $50...
  3. OS X is Unix based, so you can utilize the terminal to move your way around the directories. A simple "cp -r /Users/*username* /Volumes/*ExHDD*" would copy the entire user directory to an external hard drive. On a Mac generally any user documents and settings are stored in the Users directory (ex: /Users/greengiant/) Love it or hate it OS X is designed brilliantly, you only have a few major moving parts. The System (which is the OS), the library (items that support the system, and applications), Users directories (all user account data), and Applications (any installed applications). Makes things super nice for troubleshooting issues. Lets say there is an OS issue that won't let my computer boot correctly. Don't need to reinstall the whole OS and loose all my data, all I really need to do is maybe replace the System, which is the OS while preserving my user data.
  4. I am assuming since there has been liquid damage to the logic board, that it does not power on. If by chance it does you can utilize target disk mode to get the data off. It essentially makes the entire computer one big external hard drive. https://support.apple.com/kb/PH19021?locale=en_US
  5. So he is running separate servers for each office, instead of having a central server that is utilized for all locations? Ideally it would be easier for him to have 1 server, and have that hosted at a single location and through a VPN link connect all locations. I have had clients in the past with multiple small offices, some healthcare related. What we would often do is use a small appliance like a Cisco ASA5500 to establish a VPN link to the primary location. Is this data medical records/data? If it is medical data, you have to be careful, there is federal laws protecting such data (HIPAA), so things like retention of records, and record security are a must. He should not be storing this on a hard drive he carries around with him. I would NOT use any public cloud storage solution with anything related to health data. I personally would focus on a central server, setting up a connected network between all locations, and have a raid based backup solution on that primary server. You can always use the other 3 servers as failover too, that way you are utilizing the hardware that has already been purchased.
  6. Wow thanks guys! I know I am not as active here anymore, but I still lurk around and read posts from time to time
  7. Anyone playing Destiny on PS4? I am looking for some groups to run the higher level stuff as I progress more. Almost hit 20, and would be interested in running strikes and raids once I get the gear! If anyone is ever up for something hit me up on PSN greengiant912
  8. I honestly wouldn't get too upset about the issues with folks not receiving PC keys. Its not a simple web form, when you are dealing with hundreds of thousand unique keys (if not more). Anyone could of had this problem, not just EA... From a development point would you rather have them developing systems to make sure you get the right key? Or maybe that one feature in the game? They fussed up to their mistake and did a fantastic job of giving options to resolve the issue, something they really didn't even need to do.
  9. One of the things to remember is that this is a beta stress test. So they are sending invites / switching to open beta in waves. So they don't hammer the servers right up front, they want to hammer them, but they want to do it in a manageable way so they can make changes as needed..
  10. ulgh really want a key... Still no email... I even signed up with every email address of mine. Edit I got a key!! w00t. This game is soooo awesome!
  11. If anyone gets a xbox one code and wont use it I will be more than happy to use it
  12. Ulgh I think my beta luck has run out. I really want to try this game out... Super excited about it... This game is the product of a team who isn't forced at gun point to only make Call of Duty games... So glad these guys are finally able to make a new IP.
  13. I'm going to play it for a bit, if it doesn't turn out to be huge, I figure not a big loss... My biggest fear is that its going to turn out to be another Old Republic... Also NDA is still in place to anyone who might be playing this weekend
  14. So... We all have tons of USB devices lying around that need to be charged. For me personally I have my iPhone, iPad, iPod, and then I have my console controllers. I have been looking around for quite awhile for a device that has multiple USB ports that can handle charging all my devices at once. The idea is to have it on my coffee table and then just be able to plug in my controllers or whenever they need a charge. If there was something that just could charge all my controllers I would be happy! It seems like generic USB hubs will not supply enough power to charge. I have tried charging my controllers via other options like my desktop and they will power on but don't charge... Anyone got any ideas?
