There is one other number as interesting as the magnitude of a quake & thats the depth, you guys had a very shallow quake. A 5.0 at 40km deep can be pretty insignificant, the ground condition also makes a huge difference. Our worst quake was only 6.8 but it was shallow close & got a serious vibration on as it travelled under a band of volcanic hills that surround the city. Our city is built on old ancient river beds & swamp land, so factor in all that & it was one devastating 6.8.

Those in the way of that hurricane, stay safe.

If you ever get a serious quake drop & get under a solid table, it will pass. Many of our casualties freaked by the noise, action & shit flying around ran outside some with kids only for balconies to drop on them, the building they ran from still stood.

Pitching my case for quake 2.

DM1-8 Just saying:)

I'm probably in the vast minority of people that didn't like Quake 2. Didn't care for the Strogg thing AT ALL.

All I will say is quake 2 CTF some of those big out door maps (what was the one with the cave you had to pass through?) running, bunny hopping as fast as you can with rockets zipping past & the whole other side in chase. I used to love exiting a building into a big open area with people in chase then seeing team mates going the other way then realise you have the flag & do everything they can for you. The slightly slower speed of the game made that incredible, now days the flag goes & you have very little chance to chase them down.

Snow day here, have a couple of feet of it outside.
May even go another two days.
Most snow to hit at sea level in one Winter in these parts.

Hoop, reading your post makes we think about all those things you listed (bathrooms, roof over your head, a place to work) we take for granted.

I sincerely hope things get better for everyone there.


Thanks nin

BTW Hoop how is your neck of the world doing after all the earthquakes?

The aftershocks in the last month are now infrequent thankfully. Keep in mind this all kicked off on September 4th 2010 & since then we've had 15000 aftershocks, & of course February 22nd.
Our whole central city is completely closed off to the public with much of it being flattened, in fact we have only just got our business out of there to a new location in the last weeks 6 months on.
They are talking 20 billion & 20 years to rebuild with flash new buildings & light rail everywhere. I've gotta tell you it's been bad not just the shakes but the incredible amount of liquifaction that pisses up from under ground, much of the roading is now sinking having lost so much underneath. Some people are still without sewers still going to the street to use portaloos, others are now being given the news their neighbourhoods are on irreparable ground so they have to leave with a cash payout & rebuild somewhere else.
It's been bad but the city is really pulling together with much help from around the country, so the vibe is good & things are becoming more normal.

Interesting stats on the quakes play it through fast from sept 4th.

I'm thinking Blue has the inside info on the pc requirements of Rage.

I joke

Turns out all that rocket research by The Carmack was to discover a new power source by which to run their games.

Steam just pulled down a huge ass download so I'm thinking wtf?
Then remembered a friend gifted me the Black Ops Annihilation map pack, had a quick perv at a map & it looks like a campers wet dream, rats nests everywhere. *shakes fist @ Tarf*

By the by people check out these delicious portal 2 maps, both very contrasting environments.
