My Clubs

  1. IT's been a while since I posted anything, but don't despair, I'm carrying the XI flag high and proud in this game. Not so high people can see me hiding in bushes of course. But proud.
  2. The medals are self-serve. You have to bug an admin until he gives you one. @JAYsus_NL is my favorite admin to bother, although you can also easily irritate @EDD THE DUCK or even @RAMBOS SON and @JohnRambo and @KillingmanXI by simply tagging them in these posts. @dadda2 and @Olive and @TheCheeseyCrusader and @Uk300 etcetera can also be spammed in this manner. As you can see, you dont even have to be an admin to be bothered in this fashion
  3. So, you may have seen the teaser/trailer/cinematic rubbish for BF5 and thought "oh gods, another bullshit COD-alike clone with senseless run and gun and magic crap such as cyborg hands on a female soldier in the 1940s. I did. I watched all three minutes of that trailer and decided not to bother. But then, someone sent me this actual gameplay preview from JackFrags and, well, it looks a lot less terrible than BF1 or this BF5 teaser. I'm not buying anything pre-order, especially not from the extremely disappointing DICE/EA fuckers. But I am keeping an eye on this because it at the very least seem to have the potential to be a fun game again.
  4. I like Edd choosing. He’s got my taste in hotels and restaurants. I am going to follow his lead.
  5. Me me me me me!
  6. PingPlotter is what I use when (not if) the piece of shit modem my ISP lumbers me with shits itself again. I'm not sure how useful it is for bandwidth testing, but ping/hops/packetloss are all put into lovely cuddly graphs and if you get a paid version you can document it to a "database" (a text file, let's be honest) and gether weeks worth of data. To hit your ISP over the ehad with when after five weeks they go "hey, maybe you're imagining it?".
  7. October is a good deal cheaper than summer time If we find some indoors activities (just in case) it can work. But, the reason it's cheaper is because all the fun stuff is shut. In Berlin we had the option of several outdoor drinking evenings, live music, walks etc. If it's pissing with rain, all that sort of fun goes away. Considering how cheap the hotels in Brussels are, I don't think the budget would be too hard there to do it in summer. Summer likely will be more fun. If we can get a good group together in June or early September we will have better chances of having stuff to do. But I'd rather have a larger group and risk rain than have sun but be missing some key idiots.
  8. Oh yeah, don't go to that hotel Mozart website with your sound turned on. The person guilty of the interior design has apparently done the website as well.
  9. I've taken a look around Brussels hotels first, since it's closer. I will list the affordable yet not crappy hotels I could find. I have included a few hotels I don't think are the best fit but could be a good backup for late bookers (or the seriously budgetarily handicapped). I'm assuming shacking up two to a room (each their own bed, though!) for pricing and breakfast included because it's cheap almost everywhere and Belgians tend to have a rather French/Italian attitude to people fucking up food (i.e. violence), so even the hotel breakfast buffet should be fine. For your convenience, I have whipped my magic wand out, and pulled this handy map of Brussles city centre out of my arse which shows the five hotels I've listed - so you can see where they all are, and where the public transport options are. 1. The insanely named http://www.husapresidentpark.com/rooms-en.html Husa president park hotel is the furthest outside the city center in this list (so far, I'm typing this while digging up hotels) but it looks pretty decent, got a big lounge/bar area we can all wait for anyone who happens to have a heart attack, it's 5 minutes walk from the North station from where a train ride into the city center is also 5 minutes, or we can walk the whole stretch in about 20 minutes. The kicker is, it's got the total budget price, but includes things like, rooms you might like and breakfast included. 2 adults in a twin room, 70€ p night (35€ per idiot per night) 2. Be Manos, this is more in the city centre. It looks a bit modern, and apparently has a decent lounge/bar where we can all wait forthe guy having the heart attack. 120 pnight for 2ppl room, breakfast included. (60€ p night per idiot) https://www.hotelspecials.be/hotels/be_manos.html?arrival_date=2018-06-15&nights=2&units=1&adults=2&children=0 3. There's a hotel for the blind in the city center which is reasonably priced and has rooms for three people, two or one. Why is it a hotel for the blind you ask? Well, http://www.hotel-mozart.be/ you go on to that website, and tell me honestly if you think whomever devised that colour scheme has functioning eyeballs. It does have a lounge/lobby arrangement and at least one bar I can see, but if we have to wait for someone to finish having their heart attack in there we're all going to be blind I fear. 2ppl room: 80 pnight w/ breakfast (40 per idiot) 3ppl room: 115 pnight w/ breakfast (just under 40 per idiot) 4. Bit less affordable, but you needn't wear sunglasses indoors:: https://www.hotelspecials.be/hotels/leopold_hotel_brussels_eu/fotos.html?arrival_date=2018-06-15&nights=2&units=1&adults=2#tabs was obviously made by someone who does have working eyeballs, but is also an accountant, judging by the amount of beige. (official website https://www.hotel-leopold.be is a symphony in the colour of OAP cybernetics) The Economy rooms they offer are a bit misnamed because they're single person rooms which become around 80€ per night. The Twin rooms are looking around 100€ p night, so that's 50€ per idiot per night. According to the booking sites this includes breakfast. NOTE: Double rooms are cheaper then Twin rooms, but they require you really really like the person you're sharing with, because there will be touching under the blankets. Also: no heart attacks in this one, it looks too boring for that sort of thing. 5. Cheap, no breakfast, no service, and I think I'm right in saying, no bar. https://www.hotelspecials.be/hotels/easyhotel_brussels_city_center.html?arrival_date=2018-06-15&nights=2&units=1&adults=2 That would be the easyHotel(s) in Brussels. If you want to attend and have no money, and can be arsed to go out to acquire breakfast yourself, the rooms look clean and functional, and at €60 p night for 2 adults in their own beds, (30€ pnight per idiot) it's the budget-conscious idiot's... well not dream, really, but it's within reach of your budget, whoever you are. This last one is deffo not where I see most of us staying if there are other options, but it's the only genuinely cheap hotel in Brussels I've found where the reviews don't include words like "cleanliness issue" or "odd smell", or there's mention of being "only 30 minutes from Brussels" which, in the tiny country of Belgium, means the hotel might be in France or Holland. That was boring, someone else do Edinburgh please.
  10. ARMA3 is already dying out too so upgrading to that will not help. Sick to A2 and keep a solid group of die hard fans. If they've stuck with A2 this long, they may stay for a while at least.
  11. Damnit that was supposed to be a secret
  12. No worries, I'm not so easily scared (esp not if Jaysus will be there, I can hide behind him all day!) I'm not sure if July is set already - before this poll got opened we were discussing time and location polls and I've only seen a "where" poll, not a when. Maybe that comes after we determine where it is.
  13. No, that's the damned point, lass. "where do you want to go" could have more than one answer from that list. I didn't say that, I said people who have no intention of going voting for a place corrupt the result, putting the meet in a place so they can/will/want to attend, and then not coming; at the same time other people who mightn't want to go to that place now aren't coming but would have if it'd been somewhere else. I don't know why the two of you are taking everything I have written as a personal insult. But I guess it doesn't matter if you're not coming anyway. I was at all but one of them. I know how it works mate. Talk about talking arse. But so that means you'r ejust voting because you're angry, not because you're coming? Noted.
  14. Let's keep this topic alive shall we (Unlike my teammate)
  15. So in that scenario, you would vote Edinburgh only; and you would show up as "yeah, I'll be happy to come, but in Edinburgh, not somewhere else". It would also have me able to pick three or four cities (Edinburgh def. among them) that would be fun. But it's not technically easy to do so no point in arguing after it. As for the second bit: Because history has shown that the number of voters is a LOT higher than the number of people who actually go. Having people who are unlikely to actually go vote just makes it harder for the organizers to find which city is most popular.
