    Well I was making a joke about my shitty avatar.
     
    If you made me one I'd use it here. I like Rocket League a lot so that's a theme. Could be an avatar or a sig, up to you.

    A resort city in a third-world shithole is still a city in a third-world shithole lol. Jesus himself advocated for separation of church and state.

    I presume there was at least a recognizable chunk intact due to the fact that it said the pilot was still in the cockpit.
     
    Regardless of that, pieces are collectors' items.

    Half Deaf Clatch: Big Plans in a Small Town
     
    There ain't no hellhounds here
    Just a few hounds
    Nothin ever happens, everyone's sleepy
    This part'a town
     
    Come along and feel yourself stagnate
    In so many ways
    Sittin on a corner, sippin on a cider
    Waitin on Judgment Day
     
     
    Half Deaf Clatch: Hard Times Make Me Harder

    At the end of the day
    Hard times make me harder

    Idk how this is news after federal agencies already PUBLICLY tapped the full databases of social media. If you have the FB app installed on your phone, you are voluntarily being spied on already. If you leave FB signed in on your PC, your browsing history is being monitored because FB already tracks browsing history through signed-in status pinging off of those "like buttons" you see on every site.

    That's a render from 3DS Max. I've connected the Halo 2 Campaign Level "Outskirts" to the Halo 2 MP Level Turf.
     
    Ingame Below:

     
    As you can see, the BSP above wasn't portalled yet. It started with 53K+ triangles, I got that down to about 37k.  With some creative/convoluted BSP Portals I've gotten the BSP to render without any missing geometry. This is all on Standard Halo, without the upgrades in BSP poly count provided by HAC2 or the newest version of OpenSauce, although this will be compiled for OpenSauce in the end.
     
    This means that the BSP is properly modelled, no open edges or other errors that would prevent compiling with stock Tool. I did not use Toolio or Tool++ or anything to compile it, the BSP geometry is proper.
     
     

     
    The above is a stitch of both the level Terminal (in the background) and Headlong. Both BSP's have been mirrored (think Mario Kart 64), and again have been compiled without Holes or Errors. This BSP is also portalled proper and ingame now, although I don't yet have screens to show that.
     
     
     

     
     
     
    And finally, stitched together the Custom Edition maps "New Mombasa" and "Chronopolis" by using a section of the Halo 2 Campaign Level "Metropolis". The section where the scarab destroys the tank is what connects the two BSP's, although the bridge from that level has been removed. I haven't added the +sky materials nor have I begun correcting any errors in the Geometry.

    So apparently it's likely to be aluminum oxide. Most of the community seems against it.

    It's just ridiculous that they expect you give 2 weeks notice before leaving on your own volition, but won't return the favor when they let you go on good terms.
     
    The company would lose their shit if one day I just decided to quit, because a couple weeks of appointments are scheduled in advance.

    "According to the California Labor Code, California is an Aat-will@ employment state. Under the at-will presumption, a California employer, absent an agreement or statutory or public policy exception to the contrary, may terminate an employee for any reason at any time."
     
    New York is the same. Both the Employee and Employer can terminate their employment without notice. I can walk out on the job, they can fire me.
  12. Aurodox liked a post in a topic by DeadHamster in God gives me money   
    I live alone, and as such am very often completely broke. However every single time that I need to find some money, I do. And even more I will find it in places that I've already looked, in pockets of jeans, in couch cushions, etc. 
     
    today i was driving a jeep i just bought, thing is vaccum clean and i mean completely clean. Except for the 10 dollars under my seat. It wasnt there earlier when I was looking to scrounge up money, but it was there late tonight when I was hoping for something to eat. 
     
    Last week it was in the couch. I checked it a day prior trying to add a few bucks to my wallet, but then when I was actually 100% out of cash there it was. 
     
     
    Now, if this happened once or twice its coincidence. This happens all the fucking time. Constantly. Like 3-4 times a month, bare minimum, and only when I need it most. 
     
    Its time to face the facts. God is real. And he's giving me money.

    actually I answered my own question:  All the player spawn points were removed therefore player could not spawn! I had to add in new player spawn points!

    FINALLY, finally after nearly 2 years of school refusal my youngest son is attending a new school today and already found a mate with heaps in common with him. 
     
    On par with that my eldest is enrolled in a program (Certificate 1 & 2 in General Education) which starts on Tuesday.  He has also traveled the public train system with a friend in readiness, something he would dare not to do due do extremely high anxiety.
     
    2017 is looking better at last.
     
     
     
    Looking better is an understatement -
     
    OMG I don't believe it. I rang around looking for work all of yesterday morning and stumbled across a call taker who's husband works for the competition of the company I work for.  She said to email him and explain my situation as far as not being able to work set hours and wanting outwork as a priority and I now have an interview this Wednesday after email correspondence with him. eeeeek!!!

    That's a strong article thats not drenched in partisan bias. I wish American reporting was as high a quality. Everything we read in the U.S. we have to double check the source to take appropriately.

    Its the most beautiful thing Ive ever seen. 
     
    Tucker I know youre first game was some need for speed junk on a PS2; this is a game called Ocarina of Time. This is what we refer to as "The greatest game ever". You should go get an emulator and try it out . <333
     
     
    All jokes and teasing aside, this is a more or less one man project that you should be supporting. But not too loudly, lets hope this guy can get a shitton accomplished before Nintendo notices and gets nervous that their fans make better games than they do.
