    The server is currently open and all players can get on it whenever they like.

    I was wondering if we could open the server and have a memorial for Diane. 
    I was talking with WillofStone and I think this is a greater idea. 
    Will you come?

    I really like it too, each individual key can be programed to be a different color and tou can have separate profiles so the picture is my husband's colors and I have it set to be pinks and purples. The only issue, which won't be an issue once we get used to it, is if you think you hit a key you really hit it about 3 times since the stroke is very short. It's a Corsair Gaming K70 RGB RAPIDFIRE Mechanical Keyboard, Backlit RGB LED, Cherry MX Speed RGB. they are expensive but we had some amazon credits and a credit card that gives us 10% off Amazon purchases so we didn't end up paying to much. I highly recommend the keyboard especially for games that split seconds matter.

    So we have got over 40 inches of snow over the last week... I've spent so much time shoveling and snowblowing the snow banks are up to the roof level of our house from taking it all off the roof. I've spent a lot of time doing stain and poly on the wood to get it finished off and we finally put the desk together today... YEY!
     

     

     
    That ugly huge lamp is getting replaced with a small LED one once it shows up, and we are getting a bigger tv this week. The one on the wall is a 40" and we are getting a 60". So glad this project is almost over. So much better than tv trays...

    unlimited amazon cloud account...$60/year.  Unlimited g-suite google drive...$10/month plus $10/year domain.
    Rent a cheap hosted server with processing and bandwidth but small disk space.  Load Ubuntu and Plex and mount a cloud drive to a folder.  Server thinks the media folder is a massive multi-terabyte volume.  Best part is the data is actually stored encrypted but unencrypted on the fly at the server side.  All legit and legal.  Now the media itself....
    I'm doing both the Amazon and G-Suite cloud and mirroring  them.  Google is a clear upload, but the Amazon copy is completely encrypted.  The Plex server is actually getting it's data from the encrypted Amazon cloud.

    Recently listened to an album Will recommended called "Kahuna Dream" by Spirit. (The album is more commonly known as "Future Games.") I've listened to it a few times and I have to say that overall it's an enjoyable experience that I can put into the background when I'm coding or doing something even less useful. However, there was one moment in the track "Stars Are Love" where I found the vocals a tad cringe-worthy. Everywhere else was fine though. Overall the album seems to be more concerned with being an experience than just being a collection of songs.
    Anyway, here are two tracks from the album.

    Currently playing The Elder Scrolls Online.  It's now a single purchase for the game or dlc, with subscriptions being optional. 
    I have to say, it's better than I had heard.  The graphics are amazing.  Combat and other game mechanics are smooth.  It has all the lore and feel of Morrowind/Oblivion/Skyrim.  Every single NPC in the game is voice acted.  If you've played any of the Elder Scrolls games, then you'll feel right at home.
    Now for the downside.  Most fans of the game series didn't want an MMO.  They wanted a co-op version of Skyrim/Oblivion.  Why they went this route is beyond me.  They didn't reinvent or improve on the standard WOW model at all.  They didn't even add in some of the newer features that other MMO's have had for years, like player housing.   The quests are the same old kill this many of this, bring me 10 of this or some variation of that theme.  The stories themselves surrounding the quests are very good.  High quality writing, but it still feels repetitive. 
    Overall, I like the setting and general game play, but it just feels hollow.   I'm sure that with friends to play with and or a guild, it would be more enjoyable.  Now I've heard that more changes are on the way, like player housing, so I'm going to be hopeful that this will improve over time.  For right now, it's a fun casual RPG that you can play with friends, but don't expect anything  you haven't seen before.
    On a happy side note, The Elder Scrolls VI: Valenwood is in pre-production.

    Turns out that those high CPU and RAM requirements posted on the Steam forum were from people running Huge 50-100 people servers.  For a small 10-16 person server, it only requires about 4GB.  My VPS has 20 slots and with 2 people on, it barely registers on the usage graph.

    After sinking just over 10 hours into the game, I have to say I really enjoy it. It's like a simplified, survival style Space Engineers. I'd absolutely play on a server for this; there's already a great deal of content to explore, so the game will only get bigger as time goes on.

    Just plunked down the 10 for it.  It may be a bit before I get to it, but I wanted to catch the nice price.

    Interesting.  You can run as a dedicated server out of the steam folder.

    Looks cool. I'd rather drop $10 on it now than have to wait for it to go back on sale again. I'll give it a go when I'm not busy.

    I've yet to actually fire it up.  I'll try to spend some time on it this weekend.
