Out of the Blue

There's an internet outage here in the BlueTower, as my stupdfast(TM) cable modem is not connecting to anything, leaving me on my handy (but slower) DSL line to connect. I spoke with a techie and it sounds like the problem may simply be my modem, so I will drop by one of their locations and swap it, hoping that will fix things.

Heh, that was my first thought: RIP, Dominic Santini. Now you've landed on that big helicopter pad in the sky.

So how about that TB outbreak. 2700 possibly infected wandering the streets.

GOOD JOB FLORIDA.

We're going to need a nationalized healthcare system now. Nothing like a goddamn outbreak to force the hand.

This last update to DayZ seems to have made my copy commit suicide by getting either an infinite loading screen or being told that the server I am connecting to is not connecting to the correct server or some shit.

Tried to fix BattleEye since that is apparently the cause of the concern but it's the most frustrating fucking thing to work with since it rarely wants to cooperate. Even trying to reinstall it through Steam or from within the folder results in it giving you the finger and not budging an inch.

No official reports on this and it seems to be a fairly large issue which has been happening on and off for a while so if this is what's to be expected from patching and general customer service by not even flagging an issue then I wouldn't have dropped cash on this in the first place.

I'm a really cranky gamer lately and this shit doesn't help.

I probably saw that movie more often than all of the Airwolf episodes combined (and then some). Dang I liked that movie as a kid.
Now I'm not saying they weren't counterfeit fish, but even if they were, there's no law against it. Or is there?


Also, it was weird seeing him in "Emperor of the North" It was probably the only time I saw him playing the villain.

Was the site down this morning? Or was it just slow-to-update?

I forget if Blue hosts his site in his home, or if it's hosted by a bigger place and he just remotes in.
