Nice to see you guys are doing well!

I started playing just before I turned 12, and now I'm currently 22, so it's been a little more than 10 years since I started playing. :o. Brings back memories of rushing home after school to grind for a GS lol.

Currently, I'm studying a bachelor's degree in IT centred around programming, however I'm currently doing a paid full-time internship as a technician at a high school for the year. It's fairly stressful at times but the diversity of skills I've learnt from it, from server management to web development to project management, is worth it IMO. Kind of crazy to think that S.O. is what led me down this career path.

On the side, I've been producing music for a few years now. Recently I've been remixing in the trap and future bass genres. It's pretty rewarding to finish a project, and hearing my friends talk about it, but I don't plan on doing it for more than a hobby.

Haven't really been gaming much this year as I don't really have much time these days. I tend to stick to the weekend to play games, and even then it's either Dota 2 or Overwatch.

I'm happy to see some familiar names in this thread already. I look forward to hopefully seeing more posts in the future when I lurk here next time.

I always lurk from time to time just to see whats happening with everyone!

I started playing SO when I was 13, currently 24 and working in a factory, hoping to go back to school at some point,but I'm not sure for what.
Just got my motorcycle license and a z650 so I've been working on my dank wheelies!
Sadly I don't really game as much as I used to, I just don't have the time, sometimes it sucks growing up.

Been awhile since I've really talk to any of you guys, so much has happened since we first started playing haha. I've been trying to travel while I'm young, I went to Alaska when I was in high school, Florida 2 years ago, and Colorado last year. Hoping to get the chance to go see the west coast some time in the next few years, and maybe Europe after that!

Glad to see you guys all doing well, I really miss playing with all of you! We should plan some night when a bunch of us are free to hop on discord or something and play some games!

Agreeing with GIS it's really nice to see this post. I started playing when I was 14 and I'm now 21.
Currently working as a automotive technician lol. I wish the server would go back up cause I'd love to play again. I've just basically been living a normal life working saving up to move out and going to school on the side to get my ticket. Occasionally checking in on this forum it's good to see a few old members still active and waiting patiently. Meiun if your there, lurking, let us know how you've been doing! You must be done college by now  ::)

Hi, I still lurk these forums. I remember us trolling each other a bit Scsox  :P

It would seem a lot of us here have pursued an IT based future GIS :)

I'm 24 now and engaged. My job status went like this:
  • Studied software development
  • Got offered a position as a tafe tutor from one of my teachers
  • Took up the offer then later became a tafe teacher teaching software development and game development
  • Had to get industry experience (5 hours per year) to remain a Tafe teacher so the Tafe found a small business for me to obtain experience
  • Small business enjoyed my work so they offered me a casual position 2 times a week (I was working 3 days a week teaching).
  • After my contract at the tafe finished up, I got a full time position offer at the small business.
  • I'm now a full-time junior software developer

I'm still taking part in the indie game development scene. I've been working on my own personal 2D MMORPG for the last 3 years and I'd say it still has at least another 3 years of development. I'm about to purchase my very first home with my fiancee, so I'm super excited. Enjoying life!

Hey Everyone, I was just curious where everyone is in life now? I know that I started playing S.O. when I was 11 or so and now I am 22. I studied Mechanical Engineering at University and now I work full time as an engineer in the aerospace industry.

This is a place where you can post your life updates, what you have accomplished, and what you are doing now!

Off Topic / Here is Practical Explanation about Next Life, Purpose of Human Life,
« Last post by nahaa on July 20, 2017, 11:44:55 AM »
Practical Explanation ( For Example ) :- `1st of all can you tell me every single seconds detail from that time when you born ?? ( i need every seconds detail ?? that what- what you have thought and done on every single second )

can you tell me every single detail of your `1 cheapest Minute Or your whole hour, day, week, month, year or your whole life ??

if you are not able to tell me about this life then what proof do you have that you didn't forget your past ? and that you will not forget this present life in the future ?

that is Fact that Supreme Lord Krishna exists but we posses no such intelligence to understand him.
there is also next life. and i already proved you that no scientist, no politician, no so-called intelligent man in this world is able to understand this Truth. cuz they are imagining. and you cannot imagine what is god, who is god, what is after life etc.
_______
for example :Your father existed before your birth. you cannot say that before your birth your father don,t exists.

So you have to ask from mother, "Who is my father?" And if she says, "This gentleman is your father," then it is all right. It is easy.
Otherwise, if you makes research, "Who is my father?" go on searching for life; you'll never find your father.

( now maybe...maybe you will say that i will search my father from D.N.A, or i will prove it by photo's, or many other thing's which i will get from my mother and prove it that who is my Real father.{ So you have to believe the authority. who is that authority ? she is your mother. you cannot claim of any photo's, D.N.A or many other things without authority ( or ur mother ).

if you will show D.N.A, photo's, and many other proofs from other women then your mother. then what is use of those proofs ??} )

same you have to follow real authority. "Whatever You have spoken, I accept it," Then there is no difficulty. And You are accepted by Devala, Narada, Vyasa, and You are speaking Yourself, and later on, all the acaryas have accepted. Then I'll follow.
I'll have to follow great personalities. The same reason mother says, this gentleman is my father. That's all. Finish business. Where is the necessity of making research? All authorities accept Krsna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead. You accept it; then your searching after God is finished.

Why should you waste your time?
_______
all that is you need is to hear from authority ( same like mother ). and i heard this truth from authority " Srila Prabhupada " he is my spiritual master.
im not talking these all things from my own.
___________

in this world no `1 can be Peace full. this is all along Fact.

cuz we all are suffering in this world 4 Problems which are Disease, Old age, Death, and Birth after Birth.

tell me are you really happy ?? you can,t be happy if you will ignore these 4 main problem. then still you will be Forced by Nature.
___________________

if you really want to be happy then follow these 6 Things which are No illicit s.ex, No g.ambling, No d.rugs ( No tea & coffee ), No meat-eating ( No onion & garlic's )

5th thing is whatever you eat `1st offer it to Supreme Lord Krishna. ( if you know it what is Guru parama-para then offer them food not direct Supreme Lord Krishna )

and 6th " Main Thing " is you have to Chant " hare krishna hare krishna krishna krishna hare hare hare rama hare rama rama rama hare hare ".
_______________________________
If your not able to follow these 4 things no illicit s.ex, no g.ambling, no d.rugs, no meat-eating then don,t worry but chanting of this holy name ( Hare Krishna Maha-Mantra ) is very-very and very important.

Chant " hare krishna hare krishna krishna krishna hare hare hare rama hare rama rama rama hare hare " and be happy.

if you still don,t believe on me then chant any other name for 5 Min's and chant this holy name for 5 Min's and you will see effect. i promise you it works And chanting at least 16 rounds ( each round of 108 beads ) of the Hare Krishna maha-mantra daily.
____________
Here is no Question of Holy Books quotes, Personal Experiences, Faith or Belief. i accept that Sometimes Faith is also Blind. Here is already Practical explanation which already proved that every`1 else in this world is nothing more then Busy Foolish and totally idiot.
_________________________
Source(s):
every `1 is already Blind in this world and if you will follow another Blind then you both will fall in hole. so try to follow that person who have Spiritual Eyes who can Guide you on Actual Right Path. ( my Authority & Guide is my Spiritual Master " Srila Prabhupada " )

Video Games / Dauntless
« Last post by Scotty on July 10, 2017, 02:26:10 AM »
Years ago, Meiun alerted me to Monster Hunter 3 coming to the Wii.  While never the most innovative when it came to graphics, the game play was very, very rewarding.  You kill what you equip.  The gear you wear dictates your power, not some leveling system, or some stat system where you have abilities to improve.  It's all about the gear you wear, and in order to get the gear, you have to hunt monsters, harvest parts from their carcass, and build better armor from it, all through a very complex, and very rewarding combat system where you literally have to duck, dive, and dodge your way through a giant stabby-stabby match.

Obviously, it gets quite difficult if you really want to go for some of the best gear and advancement in the game, and with graphics that are sub-par to the likes of Dark Souls and other games, it never really caught on in America, at least until E3 this year when they announced they're finally bringing Monster Hunter to the PC.  In the meantime though, a project that has been in the works for far longer, announced at PAX East, Dauntless runs in almost the exact same vein as Monster Hunter.

Better graphics, just as great of a combat system, same concept of "wear what you kill", it looks very, very promising, and it will be coming to PC in the next month, well before Monster Hunter does.  Currently, if you purchase one of the founders packs, you're guaranteed early access when it goes live on August 18th.

If anyone else is interested, I'll be participating in the Alpha, eagerly excited to see how it progresses.  I'm not one for buying into early access games given the mass amount of failures that never see the light of day past alpha, but when I see a Monster Hunter inspired game come to PC, I can't contain my excitement.  Let me know if anyone else is interested!
