Earlier, as I was scouring the forums, an intresting question was posed by one of the new trials who asked about the 3 person referral rule. For those who don't know, it's a rule that requires a trial member to refer at least 3 members (who then become trial members themeseves) before they can become a full member. Don't think of it as a set rule tohugh but think of it as the main way. Its possible to surpass this just by being a really good member, helpful and all that. In many ways it's easy to think of this a earning a qualification, with the alternative working hard and making your way up to the top that way instead of getting a degree.
Regardless, this got me thinking, why do some trials move faster than others? At last count , there are over 120 trialsfrom all the games. A quick look suggests 5% have not visited the forum for some time and so are unlikely to progress in the near future, a further 10-15% have been trial for some time and are very much activite members of the community, and the rest are new; whether they will make it I do not wish to speculate.
And so I've been turning this thought over and over, and alas, at 2 in the morning I come to a rather pragmatic (and perhaps contrevesal) conclusion in that pehaps some people are perhaps simply destined to be trial for ever, least till they change. I do not write this as a hard and fast rule, and nor I am sugesting it applies to anyone in particular. What I am making instead is some broad, general, statements based on my views which I concedde may not be perfect, and at no point am I suggesting this be taken seriously.
What I propose then is there are 4 'types' of trials, Type A, Type B, Type Cand Type D
Type A and B may be seen as the bad and the ugly
Now type A is the bad type, the type that wants to 'clean up' the server so to speak. Now it's good to help the server, but less so when you take the law into your own hands. And so these people play on the servers, and get sick of the trouble makers. They join with good intentions, but when they get the 'power' they realise what they can do and start abusing their power. They realise they are in a postion of power, and kinda forget their places and so are quite ready to dish out punishment snd get into fights with other admins when disciplined , in a sort of 'why shoulden't I ?' sttitude. These sort of people get demoted or kicked out usally
Type B is ugly; they aren't bad but expect a bit more than they should. They play the server , enjoy it , stay there and become a regular, and don't cause hassle. After a while, it sorta clicks how long they been playimg , and start thinking to themselves they could make it into the clan, and so apply but without the intention really to do much but earn the badge, a 'badge-hunter' so to speak. And so they apply, check into the forums now and then to see how they're doing, maybe have a poke around the forums for a bit, but not do much preffering to just play the game. Then they get into trial, and pretty much go 'K thx bye' . They get the trial status, and sorta learn they can patrol the servers a bit, so mute annoying people, kick mortar humpers but don't really have the intention of doing much else . Later on it sorta clicks how long they been a trial and so they start wondering why they aren't full member yet without really understanding why. And so they start asking, but when told what they have to do they kinda resent the extra effort and so just stay wher they are, or try but give up if they feel there's no quick reward soon
Now Type C and D are the 'good' type, and could be seen to be the flip side of A and B.
Type C is intresting, in that they help the clan, and yet it's more for their own means than anything else. So they join the clan , not for the badge but rather because they have friends in the clan and wish to be in the smae 'club' so to speak. So they see Player X is in the clan, and aspire to be at the same level, to make themselve equal almost. So they apply, get trial. Thats part one done. Now they want to be full member, so they start looking for ways to help, and they help but once they've helped enough their level of effort starts to go down once they reach the same effort, or are comfortable with the level they are (for example if their friend is a co-leader or higher, and they feel its too much of an effort to get that far). And so these people are helpful , and do contribute to the clan, but it's more their own lesuirly pace than anything
Type D is the best, insofar that they become great people without even realising it. You ever notice that if you really enjoy something you will put effort and time into it without even notcing your doing so? That's what these people are like. They join the clan not for the badge, but because they honestly want to help and coulden't really care bout the badge, and rather see it as a means to an end. They help on the server in ways they can without a need for a badge, such as anwsering queries like 'How do I change my name?' and get satisifaction from helping people (the neeed for praise is not really needed). These people then are either recommended or join because they think they can help further, and like Type B potter around the forums, but unlike Type B , poke where they think they can help like the 'Hekp' or 'Suggestion' section. They get accepted, and continue working, but they operate at a point where they dont notice they are working great. So these people don't even think about the 3 person referral rule , they just refer people naturally. They patrol the servers and don't think bout the reward, they just like helping out, and it's a pleasent suprise when they get promoted, but it's not going to change them. I don't suggest people work towards a reward, because I 've yet to meet a co-leader or leader who is co-leader or leader just because they want to be one. The leaders here didnt go asking 'oh make me leader' , they were made leaders without them really thinking bout it
As I suggested this is just an opion of mine. And whilst they reflect my opions, in no way do they reflect that of the clan's. Everyone has a different reason for joining, and whatever it is, so long as it's not malovelent, it should not stop you joing
The Rock - great actor. Ok so a few of his films - The Tooth Fairy, The Rundown - sucked, but only because the whole film sucked itself. I havent seen either See no Evil or 12 Rounds , but im pretty sure John Cena and Kane make pretty good actors too. Wrong Side of the Tracks has not one, not two but three wrestlers - Batista, RVD and Big Daddy V (Plus someone who looks like the Big Show with a really long goatee).
The plot, thus, is as follows. A new guy moves into the neighbour and introduces himself to Bobby (RVD) and his wife. Presumbly after having been rejected by all the other neighbours, he asks to borrow a hammer and thus begins a wonderful relationship culiminating in new guy and his wife inviting bobby and his wife out to a nightclub owned by one of the new guys clients (job not explained). Bobby, presumbly with some form of forsight, obvioulsy harbours some judgment and tries to kindly back out but is forced into the arragment by his soon-to-regret-this wife.
Skip a few hours ahead and they're at the nightclub sampling the delicious food. Meanwhile the owner of the club is off to a buisnees dealing, leaving his bro behind in charge. Naturally , hes a coke fiend and promplty snorts some . Some time later hes showing his moves on the dnacefloor when he spots bobbys wife coming out of the ladies loo. Despite being at least 20 years older than all the rest of the female patrons, he finds her irresitable and drags her to his office for some raping. when new guys wife comes back from the ladies and sees bobbys wife is missing, bobby immiedtly senses danger and goes hunting. Upon the sound of some raping, he barges pass some patrons who seem to be deaf to the sound of raping and immidtly saves his wife . Sadly , the dispostionedd male is none too happy at his falling erection and tries to kill Bobby only to trip and stab himself (oops) . Thus begins a tale of revenge as the owner seeks to avenge his brothers death by placing a 100G boutny on bobbys head.
If you were expecting bastia bombs and five star frogsplashes as i were , youd be dissapointed. However, Batista - who only shows up part way through the film, and from then on as a deus ex machina - does shoot someone in the head, which i hope you agree would be a more effective finishing manovuever (if ever he resumes his wrestling career) .
However, fear not, there is still plently to enjoy , such as the free boob shot. Ok, so theres a lot left to be desired - rvd often leaves his victims alive as opposed to punishing them like ,well, the punisher-meaning they have plenty of chance to come back and annnoy him later on - and the gangsters do seem to have even poorer aiming than rambos would be killers , plus there are a few contunity errors - but when he kicks ass boy does he kick ass. He may have been shot in the leg , but thats not going to stop him sweeping the bad guys.Fights set to some form of explosive music are ten a penny these days - Kick-Ass, Stormbreaker, and so it takes something special to stand out, and seeing batista pwning a black ninja is surley one of them
With several explosive plot twists and kick-ass acting to boot - specially from rvds daughter who seems to have a degree in arrgonace - you wont be dissapointed by this film. The director, David DeFalco, has made several filmsin the past, including the notorious Chaos, whos nipple-slicing-n-forcefeeding- scene ensures its status amongst Murder Set Pieces and the August Underground series as a film only the truest horror buff (or sicko buff ) will stand to watch. With Wrong side of the tracks though, one can only presume he's on his way out of obscurity and onto Hollywood Fame
Bravo sir , bravo
Kick ass fight scenes
RVD is a wonderful actor
The girls are hawt
You just which hed let loose with that uzi and save society (and himself) some trouble
That black ninja was so weak. WEAK i say

In 9 days time ...less than 216 hours...Baska will be gone. Yes ladies and gentlemen, it saddens me to have to the type words most of hope we'd never see. Baska will be gone. As Winnie the Pooh would say 'â€œIf there ever comes a day when we can't be together keep me in your heart, I'll stay there foreverâ€. To those who know her, they know we cannot help but love her. To her many admirers and lovers , she will be the eternal sun to admire , too far to touch, a golden dream that will remain forever nothing more than. To her many friends, she wil always be the final piece of the missing puzzle - wanted, and uncomplete without. And to those she has slain , never a more beautifal face has death took. Although i admit it is premature to annouce the fall of a goddess, i feel it only prudent to allow you to treasure what remaining time you may have. Take as many screenshots as you can boys and girls, cos she wont be around forever .
adieu my darling x
10 years, blimey theyve gone quick havent they? And what a 10 years it has been. From the fear of the millenium bug, to the fear of the death of stand-alone pc games (online gaming aure has come a long way from LAN parties) , to the acceptance of global warming as fact ,the final harry potter book and the death of MJ. Go round the net and you can find several blogs and journal articles on what people belive have been the definig moments of the noughties. for me , i dont think i could do justice if i limited myself to picking out moments from the cultrue, and besides you dont want to read more of the same. nor do you want ot read about me , so i will be picking a more different route and going for
Top ten F|A moments
These are by no means in order, and by no means will i include 'birth of F|A' as that is a givern - without it, i wouldent be writing this after all '
10) The Deathbringer cometh ...and goes (changing his age several times along the way)
Really, this guy goes down in the halls of fame in a fiery ball he struck himself. Although long since gone, his threads and posts remain much loved for the quotes they inspired such as
1. Yes I (Daredevil) is racist. Now go to Obama and tell him daredevil is racist or you can law suit on me.
dare is after mexicans then polish ppl...hes the new mexicutioner...thats why now i only play undercover,last time he said something about "going after the tacos"...
9) Lock up your girls - Maj Winters is coming down town (and he is rather allergic to girls)
id love for any of you to see me in person ill f***in break all your noises and bury you in a ditch.
He may have only lasted one thread , but what a thread. Whilst commiting sucide can be rather easy, turning it into an art is not. Maj did not so much fall down the wellshaft as bury the president in it and shit on the corpse . Perhaps still the only man to have threatened physical violence and insult both Fem and Baska in one thread, the thought of a cage fight between him and joe alas still remains that
Fuk that shit, next time I m in Vegas i ll pm you to meet so I can kick your little girly ass.
And speaking of Baska...
8) Few have sexier voices than Baska (and fewer still admin abuser like her )
Mmm..people know im useless on vent. Which is a shame because Xfire is a btard and Vista and PB have finally manged what theyve been trying for several months and have killed my ET experience dead. As such my only method of communciation for most is the forum and who reads my essays But going back to the topic on the hand, a top moment must be plucking up my lil' courage and speaking to Baska on vent for the first time. Worth it for the sexy voice, worth it even more just to talk to the little pumpkin
7) NQ arrives guns blazing..and runs out of ammo a few months later
Boy did it take its sweet time coming , but boy what fun it was when it did. Unlimited ammo, unlimted charge bar. Lots of bots. What else could you want? Well alright, there were also some sweet vsays. Sady, this is no longer true of it, but the memories wil always been in the hearts of thos who live with their rose-tinted specs on
He took a short-break
5) Forums go IPB
Ok so its costing Dare a packet and not enough people donate. Lets not dwell on the guilytness, and instead unshamefully revel in the glory of IPB - blogs, skins, profiles .etc
4) Pepe and a bed of money
At this point im listening to Foo Fighters 'My Hero' . People know i go sentimental sometimes. Boy i have a lot of people i like and love on this server. Why Pepe is here and other people (appart from Baska of course ) isint becausse of the goldrush incident. Never has there been more a humbling expereince in recent memory. Check my past blog (do love pointless advertising) for more info!
3) Living ..breathing ETPUB
Before NQ came , i was an ETPUB lover. No doubt, ETPUB will be where i truly wasted most of hours, getting to know Mex, Childsplay, Ackmey and the others, and just how abusive Milli can be...
2) Becoming a forum mod
You may not know this, but i am a forum mod. Maybe its a bit selfish of me to choose this as a top ten moment, but for me it was a very nice day. I do seem to spend more tiem on these forums than in-game, and many a time i wanted to move thread,merge or even close. And now i can. Withen reason of course
1)The whole =F|A= Experience
Oh why not. It would be just plain wrong to say it hasent been a blast. I will always vbe amused at how quickly F|A has risen to the top, and i will always be delgihted with the njew friends i made here - Skull , Tonka , Valk etc
So thats it, my top ten moments. Perhaps not the best moments ever, but sure as hell they are for me. I hope you too have had a great 10 years, not just F|A years, and hope to see you on the other side of new years
You may have seen this thread or more specifically
Why if this were wrestling...

But i think medic is too distacted to notice what just happend! 1...2...3 . What a dirty, low handed, conniving victory that was
_ _ _
TEAM F2 WINS!
Ah....if asked to summarise Uni i would say its 50% meeting new people (friend and foe),15% becoming truly independent. 20% partying, 10% learning to shop in thrift stores , and 5% learning bout stuff (irrelevent or not)
Ive met quite a few people (and forgotten a fair few names along the way) , have decided that TV is not that important, found that taxis are best shared with people to split costs and found that bacon is rather more expensive than i wished it were. Still, there are quite a few thing i have learnt over the past few weeks that i have taken rather to heart more so than others , either because of their novelty or as a serving reminder.
1. ET is disruptive to my life
Yeah...each time i keep planning to quit ET the addiction only comes back worse. Probley more better than smoking, but probaley also more disruptive. Ive decided to make a real go of it though, as i found that Sunday was quite the eye -opener. It was a choice between sleep and talking to unlawful and Nrgy bout the relative qualities of maps we would like to see on the server (go golden dunk go...) , and whilst it was not the first time ive spoken to people past my bodys wanting , it was waking up feeling seriously tired when i would normally be quite alert that really told me i was spending far too much time playing. Thankfully, i had zero lectures on Monday, but ive decided to halt ET to the best of my abilites. Unfortunatly, i cannot seem to unistall ET, but ive manged to avoid it so far. Ive givern up on not visiting the forum as im quite the person who loves to keep up with the gossip (i dont want to find out Baska quit 3 years ago when i next vist the forum) . So whilst i do feel guilty and quite ashamed im not learning bout Fisherian runaway theory, i would find it worse just thinking bout it rather than the Sexy son hypothesis.
2. Money flows fast
I like to keep a budget , and i was quite suprised when a) i found out it had already been a month and B ) i had spent bout Â£260. Granted, most of that was on textbooks , but i was still suprised. Even now i spend more than i should. Ive been suprised bout the cost of several things, but thankfully i am used to walking round town to comapre prices. I was suprised by the cost of bacon the otherday, but on the otherhand i have gotten used to 9p noodles and tap water and so its a bit of a trade off .
Poundland has become my new found friend. Great bargins there for houshold goods. You cant go wrong with buying some Dettol for Â£1 when it would normally cost Â£2.15-ish
3. Wiki beats 2 hours of lectures
I have actually found the lectures quite nice. Partuly because i enjoy the subject (an essiential really though) , but also beecause the work rate has not been as bad as i feared (two whole days free of lectures? woo. next semester will probaley be a b - tard though) . Still, one thing i have found is that explaing an entire topic in two hours is not brillaint as it often means having to explain some rather complex - if intresting - theories in as short as time as possible. For example, having done a lecture on Eyewitness Testinomey, i found myself having to google all the experiments in order to make sense of the results that were givern to support various issues withen it.
I do belive my proudest moment though has thus far been to look at game theory on Wiki
Ill admit i never payd it much attention in Economics because i thought i didnt need it (didnt need it for the exams in the end) and yet i find myself looking at bits of economics again in psychology (like diminsihing retrns and margins of labour) It took me some time, but i finally made myself understand the prisoners dilema . This ,along with simulatonus equations, i have been proud of learning on my own
4. Fight club was right. I dont need TV
I was rathered suprised how quickly i divorced myself from TV, but i am glad i have (and hopefully i havent jinxed myself by saying that ) instead, my new vices seem to be ebaying Zippos. Oh well
Because i am bored heres a hapless story i have written .... Caution - May be of low quality
'Dear God Dr they're everywhere!'
'Be calm Mary'
'Huuuuhhh!!Its no use, there are too many of them'
'Sh*t the vents!'
'Through the vents Mary'
'But Dr well never make it in time'
'Ill hold them off'
'Go! schnell '
Mary looked back as the hapless doctor swung the fire extuningsher. Her last sight of him was as the Penises finally swarmed him
30 Minutes Before
'Mmm you know this aint half bad. The saugause is a bit too soft for me but its still tasty '
'Yeah. Shame the fried egg is so small you know'
'Hey. You done the assignment yet?'
'Na not yet. Ill do it tonight'
'Its pretty easy actually'
'Say did you catch the game last night'
'Na but i saw the score '
'Sh*t i swear he haxes'
'Have you heard, they're thinking of expanding into Street Fighter?'
'Lol is that possible?'
'Lol doubt it'
'Be right back i need to refill'
'Man the coffe here is pretty expensive'
'Lol, yeah . Be beter of with a thermos flask '
'Hey you smell something'
'Oh my God....'
'Doctor are you sure this is correct? The patient seems fine'
'Woman are you questionong me? May i remind you i am the Doctor? Hmph!'
The doctor straighted his tie and waleked off.
'God hes such a b*tch isnt he? '
'Hey Mary what do you think'
Mary took a look at the chart
'Hmm...the patient seems fine . What does the doctor want?'
'He wants to do a closer examintion'
'Huh didnt he examine him yesterday?'
'Thats what i thought'
5 Minutes later
'Man that was a preety good breakfast. Havent had a fire fry-up in ages'
'Lol yeah. '
'Shit is that the fire bell?'
'F*ck another one? '
4 minutes before
'Holy Shhhh*t! What are they!'
'I dunno man, but they're heading this way'
'Holy sh*t did you just see that!'
'Oh my god its gone into his mouth!'
'Sh*t they're swarming us'
'Quick through the fire exit! Retreat, retreat, retreat!'
4 minutes later
'Man i dont think anyone can cook here'
'Sh*t do you see that? People are running from the canteen!'
'Sh*t John , whats up? '
John puffed for a bit
'Ma..huh...mas..huh...massacre..huh...in the canteen'
'Dave man listen to me. we gotta get out of here!'
'Dude whats going on?'
'Sh*t what the f*ck are those?'
'I dunno. Lets just Run!'
'Muhahah. Look at those pathetic beings. Runnning away. Muhahaha'
Mr Evil swung round in his chair
'Martha how is the experiment going?'
'They're going most excellently master'
'Excellent. how long till we can unleash them?'
'Soon your devilness, soon'
Mr Evil swung back round.
'Now time for some porn'
'Sh*t whats going on Man?'
'Sh*t i dunno. I was just having breakfast when we smelt some burning stuff and then ,like, the fire belll went off and those things came out from the bar and attacked us'
'Oh *sh*t we left Tom behind'
Geoff slapped his head
'Oh well hes dead now'
'Sh*t man dont say that!'
'Eh man its the truth'
John grabbed Martins shirt and shoved him gainst the wall
'Heyheyheyhey lets not fight each other now'
John shoved his face into Martins and glared at his face
'Oh sh*t that sounded like Bertha'
Geoff ran off
'Well come on guys, lets go !'
Approximtly some distance away
'Mary help me out here!'
'Mr Jhonson's not responiding'
Mary looked at the moniters
'Tina he's dead'
Mary sighed. Education these days she mutterd to herself
'Ah Mary there you are'
Mary spun round
Where did you put Edward? '
'Hes still there doctor'
'Excellent. Bring him to the operating theatre'
'Now please'. He tapped his watch 'time is money you know'
'Bertha are you ok? Here let me help you up'
'Geoff that damm dog of yours has made of with my ham sandwitch!'
'Woofie' Geoff scoured the distance vainly' 'Here woofy boy, here!'
Dave came panting up
'Sh*t what the f*ck are you still doing out here?'
'Dave you seen Woofie?'
'Dave hes got my breakfist!'
'We're going to be breakfast soon! Lets go!'
3 minutes Later
'Sh*t where are they?'

Re-edited for clearing confusion.Danke Phantasm
Because you have been kissed off
You start to Wonder why
You yearn to be kissed
To be loved
To be held
To be recongised that your still alive
Because you have been kissed off
When you see others be loved
It breaks the heart to not know
If your are loved any more
It confuses the mind
To wonder where it all went wrong
Is it because i am not there at the right time ?
Or something more?
I yearn to know
For i love you
Every thought of you makes me happy
Its you i come out to play for
Its you i work for
You reject me
Why must you make me cry?
What have i ever done?
I wish youd tell me
So i would learn
I miss you even now
But you'll never know
How much i yearn for you
I love you
Haha some of the things people say on these and other forums do crack me up. Ive never bothered saving them but now i have a blog and lots of time i should be spending working on my hand , this post i will dedicate and edit apporiaptly (at least, for the next week or so
Haha last part was probley one of the proudest things i did , lol sorry Joe and Mraw (But you really had no chance Mraw )
At this point ive reached the alloteed number of quotes
Mmmm...Reading Baskas comment bout beer makes we want a bit of tipple. But not beer, oh no. Icky , dislike taste of beer and lager (shouldent 't i be doing something more productive than this? Oh dear ...) I do like cocktails though. Something fruity mind. Mixing absinthe and tabasco source is not good idea . So something like a woo woo? Something not particulary masculine i know, but still ... My first drink was a Jacks. No idea why - too strong for me lol. But i have enjoyed it since. Kinda warm and fuzzy. No idea whether i should sip it or down it though lol . Been experimenting since - i cant seem to find something i like. So far i like WKD; basically vodka flavoured kiddie stuff. Not particulary strong but taste ok. Had Archers the once; one of the sweetest (as in opposite of sour sweet) drinks ive ever had. Hardest thing i had to drink was a Hobgoblins. The ad promised something along the lines of Choclate Malt .. hmm really i shoulden't be so trusting or naive to think hot choclate lol. Still, forced my way through it because i didnt want to waste money. Hmm.. the worst thing was a very cheap bottle of wine , followed by very strong brandy. Two drinks i didnt finish in one night oh dear. I will have to come to the conclusion I ll never get wasted . These days i have J20 (fruit juice basically) , and maybe one vodka mix like apple and vodka. Or else coffee. Na im not the life of the party me but hey at least ill be the one who can get home in a straight line ...
(Right time to work...)
Lol, save for the people who post their pics on the forum i have no idea what people actually look like and so i end up having to imagine what they would look like based on the name. Here then , is what i imagine a few people look like...
Daredevil (when he was Hell_Returns)
Basssska (yes i know what you look like baska in person ; this was before then lol )
Well despite a twitchy eye and a feeling to sleep, I have indeed just read the Donation Thread (This thread here) and mmm i do like the sound of
Particulary, Ive always liked the idea of chaning the personal rank on forums such as PB and IP. Makes you stand out no? As for the PM i always felt it was an issue in bandwidth; i know many many a forum limited to 100 pms mx and ive always felt a shame to have to delte the old threads Me? Im a classic hoarder. Cant throw anything away, but today i did mange to chuck out nearly 4 stones worth of old school work and it did knida feel good. At the vbery least it will free up some space ^^ As for the change in name, I only ever use two names - F257 and another on several, shall we say adult and slighty dubious (? ) sites. Indeed, quite how this name arose is a mystery; certainly i wanted to join a foruum at the same time it was my very first forum to join and i didn''t want to forget my username. My own popular belief is that F257 arises from the first intial of my first name - Francis - 27 from my house number (too much info? ) and 5 number of people i count in my family (even if that does include a half-brother). Im one of those people who like to find symbolism and meaning in things - like when you your afraid karma is going to come back and bite you on the ass - so i decided to sandwhich the 5 inbetween the '2' and '7' as though to keep the family of 5 safe. Strange no?
Taking a look at the donators list (Here) its certainly nice to see people that care. Admitdley i dont recongise a fair few names - certainly i belive KILLERGUN, Dermir and Kinan play on COD (since hardly any of our members play BF2 lol. I try BF1 once - celerons arent' cut out for it i found, and certainly flying things is hard without a proper joypad lol ^^ ) . Looking at my name does bring perhaps the most eventful of my FA memories in recent months.
Ill admit the donation came out of guilt really. It was a silly inciddent really . I rember messing round with Pepe (great guy - i think i cursed ourt relationship because he dissapered soon after this >< ) and jokingly i said to him 'You know, Dare sleeps in money' or something like that. Nothing serious, and certianly nothing meant to be spiteful , just some throwaway comment like perhaps ' You know Simon Cowell likes to play teddy bear picnic (Maybe he does ?)' . Its not really true , both know it and just say it for absurdity of it. Of course , jokes really only work if both parties are on same level and unfortunatly my sense of humour seems to be on a diffrent frequency to others at time. A case in point is when i manged to piss off Skull on NQ when i joked he liked cats too much. I think we made up, but i can never be sure. Hence i keep bugging Baska if we're still kwl lol . Hard to read Interent emotions.
Of course too do this day i do feel bad. I dont think our realtionship has ever been the same (><) and i do miss Pepe. Saying the latter indeed makes me want to write at least the names of thos that have come and gone. This then is a list of thise that were once are brothers and still are but in memory only . These are AWOL and or inactive for long time (or else i havent seen them long time ^^)
To add to this i will also add the list of meber i know who have in the past been a FAG regular (well.. i saw them playing in FAG at least ) and or member. Kinda amazes still the amount of players who moved here. My apoligeis if i have missed you off list
Sex and toys
Warmongrel (if its the same guy im thking of )
Spl@sh (Ditto ditto)
GIJOE (Ditto x3)
Savage (Come back and play...)
Dead (Didn't he go to COD?)
hester prynne (Appernlty)
Xeon (Apperntly; thoguh he's left)
And further still we get other regulars like Iceman Quebec and Koba playing here
So here's to you . To those missing or gone , we wish you come back, or else in good health. To those that have made the transition its proof you dont meet your friends (and enemies!) on just the one server. And to thos who have gone off the rails we wonder why!
But to all the players and admins of =F|A= ...a message to say thank you , for contuning to help make =F|A= what it is ; the best damm server i know thus far
I dunno how many people read Cracked.com certianly I only got into it after I saw an ex-mate read the 'Craptions' school. I suppose i wasen't fully intrested till i read this article (NSFW) . A recent article on '5 Popular Zombie Tactics' (Click Here) got my attention recently and got me thinking back to an old blog i had made on what to do when your town has been 'zombified' .
Chuck a rock at a zombie (never more than one) from a hiding distance â€“ and watch its reaction. If it stumbles towards you, then obviously it's a normal zombie. Normal zombies can hear, see and feel. They react to temperature â€“ the heat of the living attracts them (as does blood). Usually, they're big and dumb, with only the simplest of motor actions (no running for example).
However, if they turn round, snarl, leap towards you and massacre your face â€“ run. These are NOT normal zombies. Have you ever played Doom or Silent Hill? It's a debate as to whether these are classed as zombies or not. I would say yes, as the definition of a zombie is a dead human moving â€“ it never says in which form. As you know, these zombies will chase you, gather some sort of military formation and have enough intelligence to trap you in some inescapable wood/ building where they can hunt you down. If you're really unlucky, you will get the Doom type â€“ they shoot with rifles, hurl fireballs and can fire enough missiles to take down a dozen Chinooks. (Remember â€“ they're only zombies if they look like they come from humans. So robots and mutant elephants don't count. It should be possible to transfer some of the basic tactics to these 'others', but they are a different ball game altogether. Read future guides for more info!)
The best tactic with a normal zombie is to be 'smart on the offensive'. Don't do a classic and shut yourself in a mall/building and pray this is a bad day at the office. Equally important don't run around screaming in the woods like you just had the best sex (which you probably have). Zombies, as everyone knows, only die when their brain is either dislodged from the rest of the body or destroyed. When you are facing a zombie â€“ hunt for a weapon of some sort. Use it â€“ and yourself to kill the zombie. If you ain't got any weapons, use your shoe or some of your clothes. Shove it/them in the zombies' mouth so it doesn't bite you and then bash its brain against the floor or wall to kill it. DO NOT INTAKE THE BLOOD. It has been known that people have become zombified because of a virus that turns them into one. It's no good if you get it. Make sure you know whether to fight or fly â€“ don't kid yourself you can fight 10 without a weapon of some type (preferably handgun). WHATEVER YOU DO, DO NOT STOP KILLING ZOMBIES. This is VERY important. When people get bitten, they stay where they are till they sense some living being. If you run and hide, these zombies will gather and soon you will be in the deep. Kill before they have a chance to do so. Divided they fall.
If you get a mutated zombie, it should be obvious â€“ they're bigger and uglier. Don't bother chucking rocks. Don't even think of fighting without a weapon. Again â€“ go for headshots. It's the easiest. Instead, just hide and observe till you get a better idea of the task ahead â€“ you don't want to surprise a ten-headed hydra with Medusa hair now, do you? Even then, calculate you're next move â€“ it could be your last. If you find out about your creature the hard way â€“ run. And then hide. Observe your hunter. And make some tactics.
As you massacre the zombies, don't do it randomly. Head to your nearest shop and grab some supplies and hopefully a better weapon. You never know what you may find. Try and hesitate before firing any weapon in case you hit another human. If you can, try and find some other humans. Go down alleys, the local park or bar or anywhere where the can hide or form some sort of safe hold. Listen for signs of help. Switch on a radio and see if there are any emergency bulletins. Go to the nearest place with an internet connection and go online to all the chartrooms you know. See if you have a global epidemic. If not, go to the nearest country. If you do, see how bad it is. If the whole world has turned, go down to the mall and have a pint. And then get back up. YOU MIGHT STILL SURVIVE! It could just be that there has been no time to set up info, and yet there are still survivors. If you've played Doom or Silent Hill, then you know you can survive just by preserving time and time again. When you find other humans, check for injuries. Deep wounds? Dump them. They're going to turn and become liabilities. Scratches â€“ they may live. Unless it's a virus of course. Give them all weapons and be a democratic leader. You do not want a mutiny on your hands. Be sure to have a plan and follow it through. There are two eventual solutions. One, get some weapons and kill all zombies in your town/city. Once they're dead, they're dead. This way you have somewhere to retreat to. However, this lengthy process and some other zombies from other places may invade your place. On the other hand, your targeting will get better as will your fitness and reaction timing. You may also find some other survivors and better yet get better weapons. The best solutions is, two, get to the nearest safe point ASAP. If you find out the world is not screwed, just your country, go the docks and go to a country which has the firepower/politics/ English â€“speaking population to help you. Or use a plane if you can. Or a train to France if needs be. To get to the safe point, get a fast coach (for supplies and the other survivors etc) and get there. Attach a scoop bucket to the front so particularly fat zombies don't act as speed bumps. Vaseline the sides so they don't get a grip, reinforce windows, and protect the tyres. Add 'murder holes' so you can pot zombies along the way. If someone can drive a tank â€“ brill. Go to the nearest army depot anyway, if only for the weapons.
With mutant zombies, chances of other survivors are slim to zero. Stay in the shadows if you can. You don't want to be blasted to shreds in the middle of the streets. However, stay out of pitch-dark place â€“ you never know what's there. Remember â€“ they have intelligence. Don't make sudden moves in case you make a noise. DON'T PANIC. Fear is your worse enemy. Get headphones for your radio or curtains for the light coming out off the pc/ TV. Skulk around till you at least get a pistol â€“ baseball bats aren't any good against 7ft freaks. Heelys are good too â€“ wheels for those extra runaway sessions. This is all about cat and mouse tactics. Got a zombie near you? Chuck a can and make a distraction. Flight rather than fight. Preserve ammo and supplies. They have all the cards. It's you and a bunch of demographic people against something that could be bullet-proof for all you know (Play House of Dead). Explosives are your next best friend. Molotov's and dry-ice are nice. DON'T GET A CAR. If you run out of petrol on the M1, and entire legions are flying right on your tail, you're dead. Be careful of the seas too â€“ nasty things have be known to hide there (Godzilla for example).
When this is all over, retire and live a happy life. Live well and prosper as someone once said. Good Luck
Looking at again its obvious i had too much time on my hand back then (Ie no Wolfstein). The definition of a zombie is a 're-animated corpse' so its safe to say that anything that can 'massacre your face' may be a zombie but more likely to be 'hell-spawn' and so quite why i indicated humans are capble of conjuring fireballs i have no idea. Then again, biological speaking, Harry Potter is a human, presumbly.
Looking at the comments on the Cracked article there are several valid points.Zombies would indeed decompose after a while so it is quite possible to hole yourself inside a large-enough Wal-Mart or otherwise. However, with no one running water-treatment, the gas and electricity boards etc its safe to say it wont be neccesarily luxury living.
Nowadays there are quite a few books on 'zombie survival' out there and quite presumbly they all contain more-or-less the same info; don't procrastinate with them, don't use them for lunch , etc.
Quite possibly if there ever was a mass zombie apocaplyse is a moot poin. Hopefully solar power will have progressed enough that you need not worry bout petrol as you drive round the countryside in vain hope of finding a pretty women/man whos still alive and not infected. Certainly its hoped that there would be enough cynical mooks to realise what is going on and begin 'rebuiilding' society.
The exact physics of zombies is not known. Certianly, they crave flesh,blood and brains but ah how they detect is not known. One would presume they operate by sight and sound - and even then - a light jog would hopefully displace them - but seemingly they operate by other means. Hiding from any of the 'Infected' shoukd be sufficent but it seems even a glimpse from one will soon bring a hoarde of others who couldent possibly have seen you before. Do they operate then, on a telepathic level? Certainly there is some level of intellegence left to be able to discern the difference between a human and ,say, a horse - though possibly there is a biological draw; perhaps we give off some pheromes that attract. Certainly though, disguising yourself as a Pikachu coulden't hurt.
Ideally at some point you would have found some other surviors. Better yet would be if one turned out to be a doctor/nurse, another an ex-marine or other , another an ex-con who can get you into places and another some hottie who you decide to re-populate the world with. Of course, this precise placing of skill is unlikley and you may equal be stuck with people who get out of breath after five minutes of walking and who will eat all your suppiles if you dont bury them in your pants and pray.
Communication is always good. So long as the virus isint airbourne and affects all rhesus types bar one (ie one must bite to infect others) you can always communicate to other countires for help, so long as the approite lines of communication is open of course.
But as i say whether the supposed zombie apocalypse will occur is a moot point and certianly seeing,reading and typing is different to the actual doing of it .The best thing you can do then is hope it dosent happen in your lifetime ^^
Oh i know Medic is going to post all thoose vsays, but i still feel like doing it ^^ As always /vsay Baska(number) (correct as of 16/09/9)

Anyone whos done a bit of psychology study into dreams may have come across Cartwright's Problem solving theory. Basically its the adage of 'sleeping on your problems' ; dreams help provide soloton to problems. I dreamt Medic had replied to this , but said try /vsay Joedirt. Having woken up soon after, i tried but to no avail. Alas it did provide inspiration, so Baska it was and Baska here we are!
Okay list of vsays for NQ. As of 15/09/09 they are correct
to work these do /vsay fa then number - e.g /vsay fa1. You can bind them like /vsay fa1 you hear me [d] ?

My personal favourites are FA16, FA17 and FA22. FA30 seems as popular as railgun and as you may notice, FA39 and FA40 dont seem to be accseible from the Vsay menu. Duke vsays go from Duke1 to Duke9 i belive. May do those later. As you can see, songs and pikachu are missing + a few other vsays like the kittie one - like that too - not sure how to get these.
Sorry for the spam everyone endured whilst i worked thes out
Google is a wonderful and strange intervention. From Lycoos to Yahoo to Google , somehow it came from nowhere and blitzgried Excite to bits. If you know the magic words you can easily find what you want in seconds .
One thing i have found difficult with WET is the lack of gramatical leniancy. When you bind something - usually by way of /bind [key] say [insert message] one often finds that ,like older mobile phones, the first letter is punctulised but the rest isin't. This often means that words may lose their impact - certianly, in my eyes Attack! does not nearly look so fearsome as ATTACK!!!
But ah for the world of scripting, where with a few /com and /cg strokes your but one step away from helping yourself to extra pudding. I myself know my memory is not great, so i have decided here and now to note down a few things in case i ever need them and yet CBA to google them
1. Adding caps all acroos
From You suck a**h****! to You Suck a**h****!
Certainly the easiset way is through use of a cfg. When editing your cfg, in order to complete the above, you need the Vstr cmd. The end result should come out as
so lets look at it step-by-step
the set is mandatory ; you requre that. but the 'tks' is , seemingly , changable , so long as there is a minium of 3 letters. You may change this comination of letters into anything, even trigrams. However i do recommend that the combination kept to at least 3 letters min . I have noticed this, but i do belive less does not work
Your vsay. I do belive that that quation mark is indeed important. In any case, no harm leaving it there
(Be sure to put the next two on a new line)
the letter you bind it to . The quoataion marks are very important here, and must not let be forgotten
the 'vstr' is mandatory, and you must spell the 3 + letter combo exactly the same
This then is the cmd to make all caps and should indeed work . Be sure for each new bind there's a new combo of letters. From an excerpt of my CFG
2. Set name
The magic of space bar
One thing about et - sure cant handle those spaces in your names. Using an example name, Player X may decide to use the name 'Player X'. However, using the /name command, it comes out as 'Player'. Indeed, ET has decide to drop everything after the space. The only work around then ,it seems, is to use the limbo menu or forgo the space bar.
But ah wait! using /set name the player may now happily use the moniker 'Player X' . The wonderful use of /Set does indeed allow for spaces ...
Because learning it all is time that could be used to play
Tying in /pb_guid you get the guid of all players. But what if, gasp, you forgot what to type? you know its pb_ but ...was it ip? pb_ip? that it?!? well its a simple enough solotion. type in /pb_ then press the [tab] button after the underscore. this will also work with com_ cg_ etc.
other useful cmds - clientinfo, bindlist, listcmds
4. Anti-Spam toggle
As bill put it anyway...
Often when faced with spam you get told to turn voicechats 0 (or was it 1? ) this does indeed mute all chat sounds, but as a medic or field op this dosent help much. I did once though come across a CFG which allowed you to turn off poublic voice chat but keep team chat on. Unforutnatly i lost it , but thankfully FAG Bill found it. Rather let it go to waste i decide to save it here I dont use it myself , since i have no real need, but JIC ...
As you can see an intresting addtion is the 'novoicetext' useful if you dont want all that multicolour clutter down there
Looking at my SL page (Click here) i do rember, playing on a FAG server once, someone protesting about the amount of SL raters there were. SL raters, as most are aware , are people who only really play just to increase their SL rating. One easy way to do this is thorugh the art of XP Whoring. (XP Whores - people who do nothing but stand in spawn handing out ammo/med packs to get XP. Potentially useless and genral door blockers). Now XP whoring is frowned on some servers,whether in name or in passing (a common house rule is 'Be useless at your own risk') but mostly ignored. It is not an uncommon practise , particualry on the larger jaymod servers, but i do rember one particular moment on FAG NQ when someone - i do belive Hell though i have no 'evidence' to support the theory - was complaiing to about this and preceded to attempt to become 'Anti-SL' ; how this worked i may never recall but i do belive it was the equilvent of jaywalking where it is not allowed, a futile rebellion, but a rage against the machine nonetheless. This particular moment comes out to mind , not because of the act itself , but because of the intetnion of the act and so it was that this player would hand out the ammo packs before proceeding to /kill (this allows for one to both bypass the need to await the mandatory recharging of the rechage bar AND to hand out more ammo packs (as you do hand expel packs out when you die)) . If only three facts are true, it was that it was on a FAG server, it was on MLB Temple (quite possiblily the most popular MLB map if only for its relativte straightforwardness) and that the player did indeed garner SL points. If the story taught anything , it is indeed that SL Whoring is quite an art in that there must be an effective amount of players to 'accept' your offerings and that the rewards can be more bountyful than half an hour of Nazi hunting
Lol Apologies if it wasent you Hell! For some reason i do get the feeling it is you but i have no idea why ^^
