Topic: yet another movie thread...
Subject: too bad


I had read where M. Night had called the Happeneing the "best B horror movie ever made", and worried at that sort of label.

Lady in the Water was AWFUL, so I was already a bit leery. Thanks for the heads up.

Topic: yet another movie thread...
Subject: another "romantic comedy"


Watched Good Luck Chuck this weekend. Netflix sent us the unrated version... er, let's just say, you don't want to watch this movie with your mother. Don't even think of watching this while your kids are awake.

The basic premise is that this guy has a curse/charm on him that any woman who sleeps with him will end up meeting her soulmate next. Thanks to an old girlfriend (whose wedding Chuck attends), this fact becomes common knowledge, and spreads like wildfire, since it is apparently true (and apparently, half the city's single female population wants to get married NOW).

The acting in this movie was decent, the dialogue was wickedly funny (Chuck's goofy buddy was hilarious in just about every scene... you'll never think of grapefruit the same way after this movie). The movie does suffer from romantic comedy formulitis; when Chuck and his love interest have their required big conflict, it feels artificial. We knew from the commercials that he'd fall in love with this girl and worry about sleeping with her (due to his curse). Only, not only does he worry, but after they have been together, this smart, witty guy goes absolutely 110% over-the-top-stalker-crazy. Overdone, in my opinion.

However, the movie as a whole was quite funny... often in a very "wrong", screwball kind of way. Beware, the language in this movie gets quite filthy at times, and sex is a common, repetitive theme.

Oh, yes, and the nudity. I'm sure it was more prevalent since we had the unrated version, but I was stunned by the sheer volume of nudity in this film. There are probably thirty topless women in this movie; many of Chuck's trysts are documented for us. There is one montage shot that includes positions that are probably too extreme for the Karma Sutra.

Oh, yes... and if you want to really be scarred for life, watch the credits. There's a nice little scene there involving some really dark humor that I am stunned a major movie studio had the guts to include. If you're like me, you'll watch that scene, unable to look away (as if watching a train wreck), all the while wishing that you had turned it off before that point.

Final report: not a bad movie, but not for the prudish, easily offended, or easily embarrased.

Topic: Looking for Interest in New Online RPG
Subject: two cents


I don't believe that I will be joining any new games.... and for that matter, Alacrity might well have me blacklisted due to flakiness, so this post may be moot. That being said, here are my two bits.

These are all good ideas, and I'm certain that Al would do them all justice. But the man asked for opinions as to what you'd find appealing. Lost and Profound strikes me as a unique, thought-provoking concept. Right down my alley, no doubt.

But I have to say, the Subway concept takes the cake for me. I love the post-apocalypse genre, anyway (curse you, Fallout!), and any new take on it is very much welcomed. Mutants? Dude, you already had me, now you're just making me blush!

Seriously, though, this is a good idea, and one I'll get to at some point. Sorry, but right now, I'm behind on work that Iget paid for, so until I get a little caught up, I can't really justify writing code that I don't get paid for.

Not at all. I used some GM authority to skip the game ahead, rather than wait for everybody to post "I go to the other room like the lieutenant says".

If there are issues with me doing this (my guy doesn't want to follow orders!), then we can edit. I wasn't at all trying to NPC your guy, just set the scene for the next place where we really need player input.

Subject: things get stranger before they get more normal


May 9th, 2025 - 0236
Passage outside of the Observatory, Antarctic Research Facility 36, Antarctica

Sergeant Kane stands with the fire team outside of the observatory. Something had gone wrong - Hatherford and Hart had fallen silent. Had the two soldiers the team had met turned violent?

The big ranger's brow furrows at the thought. Even if they had, the ranger corporals should have been able to deal with them, or at the very least, warn the rest of the team. It didn't add up - nothing in this damned facility did.

As the team approaches the observatory door, they became aware of a terrible stench, very much like that of rotting meat. "Safeties off," Kane speaks quietly. The big ranger gives the signal, and Lee breaches the door...

...into madness.

The observatory is completely gone. Not destroyed, not ransacked, but gone. In it's place, the door from the corridor opens into a large cave of stone and earth, with roots dangling from the ceiling high above. There is no trace of Hatherford, Hart, or of the two other soldiers. The stench is much, much worse here - like that of rotting meat, spolied eggs, and overpowering musk, but magnified to be much stronger.

The foul odor is almost too much for mortals to bear - Lee, Johannsen, and Kane are overcome by horrific nausea, and only their superior training allows them to remain upright.

As the team attempts to gather themselves, the air is split by a bellowing roar. A tall (seven plus feet) monster covered in shaggy fur is rapidly rushng the fire team!

This is not one of the yetis viewed earlier. This creature looks like a terrible cross between a human and a sloth. Its body is covered in dark, reddish fur, and large, curved talons protrude from its "fingers" and "toes". It is clearly angry, and is currently charging the fire team.

May 9th, 2025 - 0231
Communication Center, Antarctic Research Facility 36, Antarctica

Lieutenant Kernan listened to the reality-defying descriptions from the fire team's sergeant before processing, then responding.

Taking a deep breath, Kernan raised his eyebrows at Blake and gave a slight shake of his head, partially in disbelief, and partially in resignation. “Ten-four, Kane. I read you. Proceed with caution. We need to know what that power station looks like, copy?”

After receiving the reply, the officer decided to touch base with the other two rangers.

“Corporal Hatherford, Corporal Hart, do you copy?”

Dead air.

The lieutenant repeated his attempt.

“Corporal Hatherford, Corporal Hart, this is lieutenant Kernan. Do you copy?”

Again, nothing. On the off chance that his radio has suddenly died, Monty attempts to commuicate with Blake's unit, but to no avail - the rangers in the observatory are not responding.


**************************


May 9th, 2025 - 0231
Auxillary Laboratory South, Antarctic Research Facility
36, Antarctica

Bewildered at what he has seen, Sergeant Kane orders the fire team to the next room on the list, which is the south lab. Following Lee into the room, the team discovers a mirror copy of the north lab - or, at least, a mirror copy of the north lab BEFORE the alien and the firefight happened to it.

This room is pristine, clean, and in perfect working order. A wide selection of tools and parts related to electronics work are located here.

Topic: yet another movie thread...
Subject: no review, just a comment


We saw Untraceable via Netflix, and I was pleasantly surprised. It was farfetched, and a bit of a reach, and a couple of the technical items went beyond my suspension of disbelief, but it was a watchable suspense movie - the items weren't so far over the edge that it ruined the film for me (like I had been expecting).

If you like detective/thriller movies, you'll most likely enjoy this one.

The fact that the government could not shut the site down was not that farfetched, since it was based overseas... but the site would not come back up within seconds. Remember what happens when the Inn moves to a new server? It's usually 12-24 hours (longer for some people) before you get the update, even if we set the TTL to force an imediate refresh. Thisis determined by your personal internet carrier, as well as by multiple major routers along the way. Instant new site isn't possible, but it makes for a good movie.

Also thought that the FBI cybercrmies detective having no firewall on her own computer - thus letting the bad guy gain complete control of all her systems - was a bit farfetched. Possible, I suppose, but no "expert" would be that stupid.

Subject: what's going on


We are suffering periodic Denial of Service (DOS) attacks against the site. These cause the site to overload and lock up from time to time.

I have instituted further measures, as well as some logging to help me not only stop it, but find out who is responsible so that I can block them completely from the site. In the meantime, I have armed the admins with the ability to restart everything in the event that the site locks up again.

If the site is down for more than a minute or two for you (which can sometimes happen due to network errors), please notify a site admin (myself, Bromern Sal, Alacrity) and we will restore access.

We're still seeing issues, and despite my streamlining of my contact code, we're still getting bombarded. We've experienced a LOT of memory usage overages in the past month or two, due almost entirely to the spamming. This was the direct cause of our outage on Sunday.

I have set up a logfile to allow me to track who exactly is hitting us so hard. In the short term, I can block their IP from accessing my server. In the long term, I'll do all I can to report them as spammers (not that it'll do a lot of good). Hopefully, I can stay one step ahead of them and help our performance.

Hammer is doing missionary work in Qatar, if I remember correctly.

Let's try out my math!

70 Dirhams per liter @ 100 Dirhams per Riyal @ 3.65 riyals per dollar = .70 x 3.65 = $ 2.555 per liter.

$2.555 per liter times 3.85 liters per gallon = $9.326 per gallon.

Ick.
