Anyone who is taking the metro, the war is near the Rockville Metro Station on the red line, I would be happy to pick people up from the metro before the war starts.

I'm not sure how many people would be interested in the idea, but here it goes.

I was thinking that if enough people in the Washington DC area would be up for a few wars prior to SuperNoVA and DCNO to make sure guns are working, test out sites, have a good time, etc, we could get some going.

These would obviously be small scale wars with much shorter planning time, but I'm all for the idea.

I don't recall exactly who is living in the DC metropolitan area at the time, but know there are at least enough people to get a small war going who live in an ~30 or 45 minutes radius.

Dcno Spring 2009

16 March 2009 - 04:02 PM

Date: May 30, 2009
Time: 10:00 AM - 4:00 or 5:00 PM
Rules will be covered at 9:45 with the first round starting at 10:00.
Address: 431 Beall Avenue Rockville, MD 20850

Eye protection is mandatory.

Banned Blasters:
Guns have been banned for safety reasons only. Should a blaster be upsetting the playing field, we may ask you not to use it. The doomsayer isn't banned at the moment, as I have not seen how it changes the gameplay. This list is subject to change.
  • SuperMaxx 5000
  • Titans with fewer than four barrels. If there is any mechanism to fire less than four darts at once, it will be disallowed.
  • Plugged pump air guns that were meant to fire something larger than a mega dart
Manta-rays (or anything that attempts to recreate them) can be used as shields, however the stock Manta-ray size is the largest a "shield" can be. Anything larger will count as a hit.
Homemade air guns will be tested at the war, due to the large variance in their power.

No guns that are painted black or a dark color. No camo guns. Really, be smart.

These rules are subject to change. These rules are based on the same ones we've been using for ages.

Project Euler

Project Euler
The Problems

Project Euler is a series of challenging mathematical/computer programming problems that will require more than just mathematical insights to solve. Although mathematics will help you arrive at elegant and efficient methods, the use of a computer and programming skills will be required to solve most problems.

The intended audience include students for whom the basic curriculum is not feeding their hunger to learn, adults whose background was not primarily mathematics but had an interest in things mathematical, and professionals who want to keep their problem solving and mathematics on the edge

You can get more information on their website. They are fun problems that can be solved in a variety of ways and don't even always need programming knowledge, some can be done with a bit of thinking (and knowing the relevant piece of information). They can be done in a variety of languages, and you can see how different people did a problem on the site after you get it right (you have to register and submit your answer).

Please do not post solutions or answers in this thread. If someone wants their code reviewed or help on something, put your code in pastebin and provide a link, so people who haven't done the problem still can get a chance to do it.

I started on these tonight and have done three of them so far.

I hope everyone enjoys.

Happy Birthday Crankymonky

Wow man, you're finally 19. Always great to nerf with you and thanks for the tips on running my own war!

You've been a really awesome moderator at NHQ who has always been able to help me out with any problems, especially when Gamefreak, JSkater, etc. are getting rediculous. Life-threatening problems have been avoided because you were able to intercede and avert any lethal blows to NerfHQ. Pre-hack you put up more mods and a variety of information and post-hack you helped NHQ get back on its feet. Always willing to help other sites get setup, like the silly TINH.

We love you!

Missing Splitfire

22 April 2007 - 06:00 PM

As some people may know, I lost THIRST's splitfire at ECNO '07.

One side is still opaque green, the other was painted black on the inside, giving a greenish-black color. The side ammo holders have been cut off. There is a bike tube on the handle as well. They are CPVC barrels that are inside copper barrels to secure them.
Here are a few pictures of it.

It's the splitfire underneath the crossbow on the far left.

Again, It is the splitfire under the crossbow.

If anyone has better pictures of the splitfire, that would also be really cool.

I would really appreciate it if someone would be honest about the gun, whether they accidently took it, I accidently put it in your bag, or you had sick and cruel intentions of taking it the whole day.
