Site Announcements / Planned outage within 48 hours
« on: May 26, 2010, 11:50:17 am »
In an attempt to deal with the downtimes, my server's going to be upgraded sometime this week. Due to this, there will be some outage sometime within the next two days.

Some s**t's going down off-forum that affects, or might affect, some members of this forum. This is a very good time to remind people that:

#zanzibar is not Glitch City Laboratories Forums
#desuempire is not Glitch City Laboratories Forums, either
the rest of Badniknet (or any other IRC network) is not Glitch City Laboratories Forums
some other forum is not Glitch City Laboratories Forums

...

Glitch City Laboratories Forums is Glitch City Laboratories Forums
.

So yeah. Don't let that IRC s**t spill over to here. Because, as much as I hate to say it, IRC s**t is not GCLF s**t. Until it gets brought over to GCLF. Then it becomes GCLF s**t.

Site Announcements / The WIKI is now public
« on: March 28, 2010, 11:57:31 am »
As of today, March 28, the Glitch City Laboratories Wiki is open to the public.

It wasn't closed, really, but now we've replaced the old site with it.

General Discussion / HMM...

Here's the deal. On March 14, two things happen.

First, HeartGold and SoulSilver come out. These games promise "New adventures from ten years ago in the Johto region". Because my Pokemon Crystal game cart will not fit into my DS Lite, I am forced to buy this game so I can replay it. It will not deliver the true retro experience of MEGA MAN 9 since it has good graphics and over 9000 493 pokemon instead of 251. Would that stop me from buying it? I dunno, Sonic 4 has a green eyed Sonic and people will buy that. I loved G/S so much I will buy HG/SS; however, since I played Gold but not Silver, I will buy SoulSilver instead of HeartGold. Too bad they didn't remake Crystal; that game was the s**t (They didn't remake Yellow either, but they can't because Guy still has it and they'd need Guy to give up Yellow before they can. Guy will never give up Yellow).

Second, my hosting payment is due. There's important s**t on this server, including some Pokemon glitch site and a wiki 2 people contribute to. If I don't pay up within 48 hours of the 14th, my server goes kablooie and they call in the lawnmovers to move lawn off it. I'm not sure if it's as important as fighting Team Rocket's evil plan to blast radio waves at Magikarp and getting to catch Ho-oh Lugia again, though. Plus, it would be pretty cool if the server died on the ides of March. That was when Julius Caesar died.

The dilemma: I can't afford both. I am forced to choose between these two. Which is worth it?

General Discussion / Pictures thread
« on: February 17, 2010, 09:04:59 pm »
I'm somewhat surprised that GCLF is nearly 4 years old and doesn't have one of these yet. So I figure it's my duty to start it off.


This is a picture of me and Naitekiakki. I miss her right now :(

Wiki Discussion / Re: Admins Suck
« on: January 18, 2010, 12:13:57 am »
I'm starting to think having two threads with identical purpose is starting to be overkill. I can't be the only one to think this. We have to lock one whenever we open another.

However, can't we simply merge them?

The Dumpster Out Back / SPAM AND WIN 2010/2011: SPAMME ROYALE
« on: January 06, 2010, 11:10:10 pm »
Spam and Win 2010/2011 begins today!

This year's Spam and Win is a little different from past ones. For starters, some people wanted it in its own subforum. We listened and took the idea to its extreme: Spam and Win is on its own separate forum entirely.

The 2010/2011 contest will be held at the Professor Glitch forums of old. That forum needs a purpose, and now it has one. Those of you who are too highbrow for spam contests can simply ignore it.

Secondly, since we're relegating spam and win to its own space, the rules have changed slightly. This forum was once a popular Pokemon Glitches forum, and now it has empty boards for discussion of many topics. Spam and Win will be played in all of these - the catch is that spam in each board MUST be about the topic in question. For example, spam in the Pokemon board must be about Pokemon. The general board and the spam board are treated the same in this regard. There is no "Spam and Win thread" this year so please post your own spam threads.

Grading for this year's Spam and Win is being done on quality more than on quanitity. That is, more creative spam is good. Posting "cheese" or a row of smilies over and over... not so much. So don't assume one post = one point. The scale for this year is judgment based.

Strictly speaking, you don't have to register for that forum - but doing so will make it easier for me to track points at the end of the contest.

The contest begins January 7th of 2010 and ends on that same day of 2011.

So - go forth and spam!

(edit: for clarification, the rules of the Prof Glitch forum are officially null and void during this contest)

Calendar Events / Abwayax and Naitekiakki's 2nd Anniversary
« on: January 04, 2010, 01:44:38 pm »
Having just gotten back home from a trip to see my lovely girlfriend Naitekiakki for her birthday party (on New Year's Eve) and having spent time with her for nearly a week, I already miss her. She's been so wonderful for me these past 2 years, I don't know where I'd be without her. She's made me a much better person and for that, I am truly grateful to have her in my life. She is a very good person in general, not just to me but to her friends and even strangers. I can honestly say that the world needs more people like her.

I'm looking forward to many more years with my love.

edit: it's tomorrow, January 5th.

Site Announcements / Happy New Year (and outage explained)
« on: January 01, 2010, 02:09:03 am »
Happy New Year! 2009 was an excellent year but we're hoping 2010 will be even better. :)

Now, as for the outage yesterday. Our host SystemInPlace did some maintenance today, which included a switch to another internet provider. As a result, the IP of the VPS was changed and I had to renumber some network configuration accordingly. I apologize for the inconvenience.

The email sent by SystemInPlace:

Quote
Hello,

We will be performing many software updates and also reorganizing our
hardware in our cabinets today, as well as taking the final steps to
ween ourselves off of the HE circuit which will be unavailable as of
January 11th.

A reminder if you have not renumbered your VPSes:

- 64.71.161.x IPs are now 69.162.132.x IPs.
- 66.160.197.x IPs are now 69.162.133.x IPs.
- 216.66.9.x IPs are now 69.162.134.x IPs.

IPv6 is now up and running on the Steadfast circuit, if you have not
done so, change the 2001:470:3 prefix in your address to the
2607:f128:42 prefix.  Open a ticket if you need RDNS delegation.

After today, VPS and gameservers will no longer have HE IPv4/IPv6
transit available to them, as we will be directing the circuit into one
specific machine to continue to host our resolvers on for the time
being.  So if you have not renumbered your VPSes, you need to do that
*now*.

The SystemInPlace team wishes you a happy and safe 2010, and looks
forward to doing business with you for the oncoming year.

Calendar Events / A very special birthday
« on: December 13, 2009, 09:16:58 pm »
I feel like utter shite for not posting this before, but better late than never I always say!

Everyone at GCLF should pay respects and say happy (late) birthday to the wonderful Naitekiakki. She's the one who keeps me going when life gets tough.

Happy birthday! :D

The Dumpster Out Back / Announcing Spam and Win 2010: Spamme Royale
« on: December 13, 2009, 03:19:59 pm »
Many people have been wondering when the next Spam and Win will take place.

The next Spam and Win is scheduled to run the entire year of January 5, 2010 to January 5, 2011.

Site Announcements / Todo list
« on: November 22, 2009, 06:55:12 pm »
I'm posting up a series of todo lists on the internet. The GCL todo list is here:

http://eightzees.net/notes.php?GCL

This is automatically updated whenever I sync my notes with the server (using Tomboy, a note taking application that comes with Ubuntu. It's damn sweet). So it's usually up to date.

Also note that there aren't any deadlines. I hate deadlines.

General Discussion / Why I changed my name
« on: November 18, 2009, 12:46:38 am »
I've been known almost universally as Abwayax since roughly November 2004 (roughly the time the third GCL ancestor, PPRL, was created) and as "Professor Abwayax ? Glitch" since February of that same year. I've kept that name for about 5 years until I adopted this new one. Some people continue to refer to me as Abwayax, which is fine. I can't make anyone use this new name.

However, I just wanted to explain the reason behind the name change. I view it simply as the end of a chapter of my life. The name Abwayax has been through so much crap, much of it rather negative. It has gone through so much drama. The name change is simply a way for me to distance myself from those events and allow myself to focus on the future.

There is no denying the importance of the past. However, there are many things that are best left alone. Tying myself to that world is not something I want anymore. I want to simply fade away in the eyes of those who have no more importance in my life. Since this name change there are undoubtedly people on a handful of forums wondering what has happened to "Abwayax" (or "Number 100"). For those forums, he no longer exists. On GCLF and a select handful of forums, he continues to exist as "Adrian Malacoda". This isn't a "new me," it's the same old me with a different name.

Maybe those who really do miss me will hit up GCLF and find me again. I wouldn't mind that. This isn't abou distancing myself from anyone who wants me in their lives, it's about fading away from those who want to be rid of me.

I have largely succeeded. On a certain forum my girlfriend helped run, I have not visited since September. I have not been within 20 feet of an IRC client in many months. The former "Knights who say Meh" and their followers are gone from me. It is refreshing, to say the least.

I don't intend the name change to indicate that I am a different person. I'm not.
