BZP TF2 Event #1

Posted by Meiko , Nov 08 2013 · 193 views

Who's up for a preplanned TF2 event on the BZPower server I'm hosting? How about Saturday evening/night EST?
 
Server IP has been changed, for those who have to old IP saved:
 
108.44.211.182:27015
 
Hit me up on Steam if you're interested, as I'll have to make sure the server is set up and able to handle enough people. Give map suggestions in the comments, and let me know if you want to participate (or if a different time/date would work better for you.)

BZPower TF2 Server?

Posted by Meiko , Nov 03 2013 · 238 views
TF2
Title mostly self-explanatory. I'm considering hosting a BZPower TF2 server. Anyone interested? It'd be on the east coast (Washington DC area), so for those a significant distance from there, be mindful that you wouldn't have the best ping.
 
Some things I need to know:
  • First of all, who is interested?
  • Should I leave it running 24/7? I have no problem with doing so, just want to know though.
  • Should it be password protected?
  • Should there be occasional scheduled "events" that would be planned ahead of time?
  • What kind of map cycle should there be? What maps do you like?
  • Any SourceMod plugins that should be used?
Also, if you aren't already, be sure to add me on Steam. :)

Update on the Brickimedia network

Posted by Meiko , Jun 17 2013 · 115 views

As many of you may have noticed, Brickimediahas been down for almost 48 hours. The cause of this is that our host, RamNode, was attacked by a competitor webhost company. More info can be found at the two links below:RamNode had many backups of most of their servers, but, sadly, Brickimedia was not one of these. What this means is that all content has been lost from Brickimedia, all of its wikis, and any other content hosted on our server. We are doing what we can to recover some of the losses, but sadly, many of it will be lost. Although the users are not worried about the loss of their contribution history, many are upset by the loss of their customs and the encyclopedia.
 
I will keep you updated, but you can get more up to date information at our Twitter @brickimedia

Chima Online

Posted by Meiko , Jun 09 2013 · 138 views

So I spent all day playing the closed beta of Legends of Chima Online with some friends from Brickipedia. It's really fun and addicting and glitchy.
 
Anyways, check this topic if you want beta access! http://www.bzpower.c...showtopic=10010

Oh right I have a blog

Posted by Meiko , Jun 01 2013 · 163 views

Well, as you can see, I'm mostly inactive here on BZP anymore. :( Aside from BioniLUG, I've barely read a single topic recently, nor have I posted much at all. I guess it's three main causes for that...
 
First, I really do not care one bit about Bionicle anymore, and it seems that any time people get the chance, they get all dramatic with "I guess this is the end", "I will wait for its return", etc. When I see that, I try not to be rude, but all I wish to say is "Grow up and move on". I know it's okay to have a strong passion and to have a love for a certain fandom, and I often vouch for others who feel that way, but all this has been carried on waaaay too long in my opinion. There are plenty of other good LEGO themes, and if you only liked LEGO for Bionicle, then deal with the fact that it's over, move on, and find something else to do...
 
The second reason, and probably the main reason I've been inactive here is the lack of general LEGO discussion. Like I said, I really don't care for Bionicle anymore. There are other LEGO themes and topics I like to discuss. I've been more active on other forums and websites recently, and I really wish BZPower had a better community to discuss what I am interested in.
 
Third, a lot of my time has been pre-occupied with other things. First of all, school has sucked this year (academics-wise; I've made a ton of awesome friends). I also got involved with the Brickimedia Network after they recognized me for my development and server administration skills. It's definitely been a fun experience, just because of how successful it's been, and I absolutely love engaging in their community. I've also been working with Swert on server and other backend work for BS01 and HS01, such as a new skin for HS01.
 
I am still trying to keep up with BioniLUG, since that does seem to be the one thing holding me on BZPower, but at this point my attachment to the site is dwindling, and I'm starting to feel bad about it. I've always loved BZPower, but I don't find much to do here anymore. :( I'll see how I feel at BrickFair VA this year...
 
Thank you for listening to my rant. Feel free to reply. :/
