  1. Pretty much. I'll defer to Lemming here as he's that someone.
  2. Hi there! In all honesty, I can't say I remember you (joined mid-2009 on Cupcake's side of the server bunch), but it's always great to hear that old regulars are doing well. We all have fond memories of TF2. A number of regulars are still hanging around on Discord; check the news post for more information if you'd like to stop by.
  3. Yo. Merry Christmas. Long time no see! I've pretty much just doing maintenance work, making sure the server hasn't crashed / burned / fallen to security exploits. Not that there's much community left here, but since it's on auto-pay (thanks to Lemming) I might as well do the upkeep. Part of the maintenance work recently was to update the forum software to run on a non EOL'd version of PHP, so that's been done. Pardon the new design and the few bugs. Anyways, if you haven't seen it, most of the regulars are floating between (at least) two Discord guilds: Monkey Face (or Cocoa, not sure what the canonical name is), and Channel Teufort. Not too late to stop by and catch up with everyone!
  4. Per request, this mix has been added.
  5. The TCRF entry on some Katamari Damacy demos is pretty neat. The unreleased songs bring me back to when I was 11 and playing the game for the first time. Also, now that I know that these protos exist I really hope that unused version of Angel Rain is available in full somewhere.
  6. Neat! I'm surprised they mentioned the server (and you) by name. The video was also posted on reddit the other day as well. How time flies.
  7. You should be able to use the graphics card. The power supply shouldn't be an issue as long as it's not proprietary, but it might be something to consider replacing if it's sufficently old (8+ years). I don't have personal experience on that, however. Sale prices are down to OEM, seems everyone's past the whole crypto thing (and it's moreso other tokens; BTC mining hasn't been profitable for GPUs for a long while). Any computer store should have OEM Windows 10 licenses; not sure how user licensing works these days. I know some licenses are bound to the Microsoft account, but I'm still on 7 myself. Depends on your desired CPU. Intel and AMD are fairly competitive at this point; you'll have to decide on that yourself. Your current latest options are Intel's Coffee Lake (8th generation) and AMD's Ryzen and Threadripper options. I don't have any personal recommendations here since I don't own any of those; I'd be looking at the same benchmarks you would be. Cases do usually have stock fans in my experience, but it varies (higher-end ones may forgo stock fans and have you buy them separately). Stock fans should be fine in most cases (i.e., not overclocking and indifferent about the noise level). Other things: CPU coolers and thermal paste. Stock is generally fine for defaults, but similar to case fans, you might want to go non-default if you want better cooling / lower noise levels. Desktop RAM prices are a bit higher than they used to be, and you do have to go for DDR4 for any builds with newer parts. Logical Increments' recommendations are up to date with modern parts. It looks like Ryzen is solid for mid-range offerings. I used it back in 2012, but being a little wiser now I'd definitely recommend using it as a baseline and not a definitive source (that is, look for sales as well, rather than purchasing the recommendeds). Similar to sales, you can also take a look at secondhand offerings.
  8. I've been tuned into listen.moe. Of course I recognize Tommy heavenly6 from a song I've never heard before.
  9. If you missed the official Jungle Inferno campaign run, you can now buy the pass at a discount and do the campaign contracts at your leisure (whereas you couldn't with previous campaigns). Existing campaign pass holders can also complete their contracts late.

    haha yes lemming is still paying the bills I lost track of who's aware but we're all hanging out in Discord now
  11. Speccy (the free version) is my tool of choice, though you can also get it through CPUID Hardware Monitor. https://www.piriform.com/speccy http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor.html

  13. Scream Fortress is also live. No new content other than untradeable Halloween cosmetics, which are now behind contracts.
  14. Since Valve locked them behind contracts, I wrote a plugin that is available on my server that can grant the new weapons, for anyone that wants to use them in a live-ish game. Plugin source is available here if someone else wants to use it.
  15. Update has been delayed to early tomorrow.
