  6. 2 Weeks in Mt. Hood National Forest + Pics

    Just got home from two weeks in the Mt. Hood National Forest. Went up for the duration of the Perseid Meteor Showers and stayed through the 20th. It was great to get unplugged for awhile. Dug a pit and sunk a chopping block for my axe, and went through piles of wood. A white pine was downed just up the road, so I had a huge supply of 15' rounds to buck up and split. My shoe busted less than halfway through the trip and I used some camo colored duct tape to keep them together for the rest of my vacation, and looking halfway decent, too. I spent a bit of time floating in the eddies created by these two rivers joining at the Fan, the split one actually being one river, and you don't continue down river unless you really try to get into the flow. It's a nice spot to swim, but due to it's cold temperature (50-55 deg. F), most people bring something to float on. I took quite a few pictures with my old Nikon COOLPIX L30 on a tripod: I was very simplified and didn't bother cooking at all, just things that need boiling water, cheese & crackers, or hotdogs over the fire, granola bars, and such. And lots of coffee... I went shooting almost daily with my replica 1870's Henry Repeating Rifle. It's a carbine in .45 Long Colt, 10 rounds tube fed. The Henry was the first rifle that combined the bullet, gunpowder, and primer into a single shell, and while it was not standard issue in the Army, many soldiers saved their pay to buy one because they felt it could save their life. I shoot at 80 feet, which about as far as I can generally find a flat and open area to shoot in the valley where I camp. That's around 26 yards, or 24 meters, the distance over my shoulder in the pic to the target. I shoot with iron sights and at that range the front sight is larger than the 10-point ring in the center of the target. After one volley of 10 rounds, I circle my shots so I can count later. Ran out of my NRA 100 yard rifle targets and had to buy these "sighting-in" sheets when I went to the nearest small town for ice and resupply mid-trip. These camp robbers are extremely bold birds, and will literally land on your chair, arm, shoulder, hat... We toss snacks around to bring them in like fruit and nuts. Rather than follow the whole "don't feed the animals" idea, we just give in and see how close we can get them for pictures and such. The bats under the bridge are rather small, around 3 inches (or 8cm) long and they concentrate there at night to feed. I brought a handheld torch bright enough to dwarf the flash on the camera, and put the camera on a tripod so I could get it up into the high spaces of the bridge. I caught one in mid-flight trying to investigate my camera on a pole and even felt his wings smack the side of the pole when he came in close. Another one was completely oblivious or didn't care about my camera and I kept getting closer until I was in macro mode just a few inches from his face - it was hard to hold still enough to get a good shot, these are the two out of literally 20 pictures that turned out decent: (click photos for full size images)
  7. Server Down

    I just asked because you once said that server os is windows. If there had been problems, I might have been able to help locate the error because we use various server on different windows versions at work... but with TCA I have only a very few experiences and these are years ago so I will not be able to help you there. thanks for the info or answer.
  8. Server Down

    Ciro was away, then I was away, now afaik, we are both around and will be resolving the issues with the server and TCAdmin in the very near future. Problems that have persisted through July and August should soon be a thing of the past, as well as these server hang issues that have popped up. If it were something simple, we would have fixed it already, but this will require server downtime and some heavy work based on our earlier estimates. We'll keep you all informed and will make separate public announcements once we get rolling. Just wanted to respond here as there seems to be questions about why this is happening, and I thought we made that clear to everyone when TCAdmin went belly-up after an attempted update in July, and subsequent failures to get together and resolve it due to real life issues and prior engagements we could not control or ignore, that the servers would be running less efficiently until fixed. Thank you all for your patience!
  9. Coming soon to Elite Dangerous:Details have been released regarding the Fleet Carrier as well as the Frontier Points that can be earned in-game to buy paid cosmetic items that were previously only available for purchase (with real money) from the Frontier Store. *I have several billion in-game credits and will be purchasing a Fleet Carrier for the VETERANS-GAMING Squadron in Elite: Dangerous as soon as they release in December, and will place it based on current group activities to support whatever we are doing, and will outfit it to most benefit our current in-game operations. Will be happy to re-tool and re-fit it, as well as re-locate it when needed, based on group decision. And standing open invitation to anyone who wants to learn some killer in-game money making strategies that will help you afford your own Fleet Carrier in no time, just let me know! Videos and guides help, but nothing is faster than flying around with someone and learning while making half a billion credits in one gaming session!
  10. Server Down

    the problem that the server no longer restarts by itself seems relatively new, do you know what it is?

  22. How to install BMS 4.34

    While having the "older" versions on your machine is fine you will not find anyone flying them, particularly in multiplayer. The Net code for 4.33 wrecked the on line scene. This has been resolved to a very large degree in 4.34 and the vpilots are coming back. Trust me when I say that keeping 4.32 and 4.33 is like keeping that magazine that you keep promising yourself that you will read...

    Thank you Acro1, will install Discord, that's a good idea. That's a good question, if i'm not mistaking, sometimes i does restart, sometimes not, yesterday it did restarted after crash when it was offline for hours before that, so the question remains, Why ?
