For those of you with hyperthreaded or dual core processors, make sure you're running two copies of the console client (from different directories and with different machine ID's specified in the advanced options) so that you're using both cores/logical processors!
Yeah that's all you need to do. If you look in your services (in Administrative Tools) you'll see two Folding services, one from each directory, running. If you're running hyperthreaded mode and your Task Manager (Ctrl-Alt-Del) shows 100% CPU usage then you're good to go.
Cx, ignore my PM, I figured it out.
All I did was c/p the console into a new folder (F@H2) and then ran it. I configured everything as default, but went into advanced options and waited until it came to "Machine ID" and then entered in a "2".
It's now downloaded a WU, and I'm running 2 consoles at once!
I'm damn excited now!
You're gonna nerf for half an hour before they just sit down and start discussing gallbladders
Prostates, actually. Gotta get those yearly exams you know. It's ok little buddy, in a few years you'll catch up.
Falcon: /shrug. I am bringing some friends though (two, maybe three).
He also deserves to be repeatedly shot in the beanbag with foam darts. So let's get on that.
Wow, 10 years.......I'm fucking old
Right? I mean, Jesus.....
Seriously it'll turn out like that Armageddon where we sent spoon off with all the little kids...
Hey, maybe that explains why we see so little of spoon now.
Dude, don't ever do that to me again. My sacrifice as kindergarten teacher that day earned me the right to be a dick to all of you forever.
Anyway yeah I'll be there. I'll probably bring friends. Maybe the wife too.
The only "FRIENDS" you have are Ph34R and that bottle of Pantene ProV in your shower.
Pantene? What do you take me for, an amateur? Please. Everyone knows that Pantene ProV contains alchohol and will totally dry your hair out, making it frizzier and more prone to split ends. Do YOU want SPLIT ENDS VACCALLICA? DO YOU?!
Godammit man. I expect more from you.
These days, it's strictly organic shit that steph buys at Whole Foods, because in the trendy part of LA where we live if you shop anywhere except Whole Foods or Trader Joes they drag you out into the street and shoot you like a dog.
Some highlights for me:
-Seeing Groove again, because he's fucking awesome. As well as Bags (also fucking awesome), and a whole bunch of other people I remember from years past.
-Meeting (well, re-meeting technically) Langley and Ice Nine, who are both badasses and incredibly nice.
-Meeting the Crossbow-toting, purple-headband-wearing Seattle duo who are super rad and very generous, both in terms of giving gifts and "generously" shooting me repeatedly.
-Watching Thorn and that young girl (who was she?!) completely dominate four grown men in the speed rounds. Unbelievable. Sorry I had to take you out later in one-on-one Thorn, but I have a (largely fictitious) reputation to uphold!
-Watching in horror as my team got completely and unambiguously owned in missile crisis.
-That time, at the conclusion of my ill-fated last-minute missile run, when I laid down on the concrete and seriously considered vomiting and/or passing out from exhaustion.
-Feeling like a weird combination of C-rate celebrity and creepy old guy.
-Trying to decide how I felt about the fact that about a third of the attendees were younger than Armageddon itself. Proud? Old? Both?
-Feeling satisfied that, after five years away, the Nerfing performance I lost on account of my out-of-practice aim I seemed to gain back from having lost thirty pounds.
-Marveling at what great sports everyone was and how there wasn't a single dick, rule-breaker, or hit-denier. Seriously, such a great group.
-Being intimidated by the speed and proficiency of Langley's pastrami-eating skillz.
-Expressing my unrequited love for Falcon in a lunchtime voicemail that apparently caused him to almost wreck his car while he listened to it.
-Reflecting on the amazing current state of mods and homemades while being repeatedly lasered from like a hundred feet away.
-Remembering why I love Nerf so much and why I've spent 20 years (off and on) Nerfing.
Thanks so much to all of you! Until the next time....
This would be my first Nerf war since Armageddon X in 2009. Jesus Christ has it really been 15 years since I completely pwned Vacc the entire first Armageddon? I'm getting too old for this shit. Hopefully I can still shoot straight.
Looking forward to hopefully seeing some old faces and meeting throngs of sweaty teenagers who probably have no clue who I am or why I deserve their subservience.
Thanks to Langley for tracking me down. Hot damn, you all have been busy little beavers.
It's ok Talio, little boys are allowed to cry.
Grown men however never cry. No, they just go outside and chop wood.
When I flew out to Jersey a few years ago I pretty much got my ass kicked (YOU try playing in a forest with a Powerclip against all long range guns!), so the way I look at it; I owe you East coast fuckers one!
If you make it down for Armageddon, I'll do more than spoon you.....If you AND Death made it down.....well.....can we say "menage 'a sausage"?
The thing is this. If I were to come to armageddon, I don't just wanna see spoon, I want him to spoon me. Otherwise the t-shirt won't make any sense.
As far as dates go.....at this point I have NO CLUE where I will be living (presumably either still in OC or somewhere in LA) or what I will be doing come June. Given my previous patterns however, I'll most likely just be sitting on the couch in my underwear watching the military channel.
So at this point any date is fine with me. Oh and FUCK Venado. Falcon's location seems like the best choice to me so far.
Why that REMINDS me.......I seem to remember..... >flips through backup CD's< Hmmm....yes here it is. Why it's an audio interview with you, me and Ozzy before Armageddon 2k1.
That interview recording must never see the light of day damn-it, NEVER!
Hmm, yes let's listen to it shall we? Hmm yes here we go-
How much is it worth to you big man?
You DO know that I only say stuff like that to get a rise out of you, don't you?
I'm not exactly trying to insult anybody...
But whatever...I guess I'd just prefer to go and meet peop[le with smiles all around the morning thereof rather than jhave everybody at each others throats before round 1.
But you know, I doubt if anything can stop that now anyway...
Whatever. I'm over it.
Besides....smack talk, like shooting birds and bludgeoning children, is one of the grand past-times of Nerf!
Groove: That was fucking sweet man. One of these days I want to get a actual poster like that of me made.....
Why? Star Wars kicks ass. Wish I could come this year. Seeing as how my current main gun would be MUCH more appropriate than the Powerclip for the wars out there, it would have been nice to be able to go and actually HIT people this time. Have fun.
And Talio, Spoon was here last year, so the Star Wars references will only label you as a pussy among the nerf gods.
If I could go back this summer I would, 'cause with my brassed AT3K I'd kick all of your punk asses.
Hmm, the lone dissenter. What about it guys, who would NOT be able to come if it were the 21 or 22nd? I'd like you to be able to come Ray seeing as how you missed the last one and all.
i'd prefer the weekend of the 21/22, preferably the 22.
Edit: Jason I remember you saying you were out of town the 21/22 right?
At least the 28/29 is good for (almost) everybody.
Ray, you just need to quit all of your extracurricular activities and cease all functions from which you derive enjoyment and fulfillment. It's making my scheduling difficult, ok?
Remember when Southern California was the Effeminateenter of the nerfing world? Remember when pre-teens would cry themselves to sleep because their evil parents wouldn't let them fly out to a LANO?
REMEMBER WHEN WE USED TO, YOU KNOW, NERF OCCASIONALLY?
I can't remember either.
I want a nerf war.
Really really badly.
In January, or February.
I NEED to KILL.
I can plan it, but we need a new location. I've checked most of the schools in my area and none yet will work. Besides, I'm tired of schools, I want something different. That park you guys were talking about sounds cool, any other ideas?
Is there even any INTEREST in a nerf war? The October YANO had SIX FUCKING PEOPLE. So lets year it guys, whose with me? I want to hear from:
Adaquabat and Co. (bring on the CTF!)
Zack (come on pretty boy, I KNOW you drive now)
Other SM crew
Other SD crew
Desert Storm (wtf happened to you guys?)
Everyone else I've forgotten.
As of Jan. 4th Steph will be in England for 6 months so she's out, but me, Jordan, Hubbard et all are totally up for one. If it's in February then Matt and Jason could come (they're home for break now).
So yea, lets hear it people. I'm tired of our nerf reputation wilting away, I'm tired of our once glorious LANO/YANO tradition being limp dicked (whatever that is) by people from fucking NEW JERSEY! I mean MY GOD, people like VACC live there....
Ok, so lets say we're definately doing this on either the weekends of Feb. 21-22, or 28-29. So let me know which of those weekends would be best (no response will mean no preference) and also let me know whether Saturdays or Sundays on those weekends are best for ya'll. I can probably do either.
Cxwq: Place looks nice but I do worry a lot about losing, like, ALL the darts in the brush and the lake and stuff. Still I'm sure there are better areas within the park to play. How crowded is this place? The one nice thing about Venado is that we were (usually) never bothered.
I mean yea I'm sure the guy there was like 87% bullshit, but that location was getting pretty stale anyway, ya know?
Other than that I don't fucking care WHERE the war is, I just NEED one. I'm all for Bonelli park, we just need to find (and decide on) a relatively deserted area so we don't get kicked out.
And for you new guys we're totally serious on the eyewear rule, no eye protection and you will NOT be playing, we've had to turn kids away before and it sucks.
Or, even worse, we'll stick you with the dicky safety goggles and you'll be mercilessly mocked and ridiculed by your peers.
