Well, recently I bought an Acer aspire switch one 10 or switch 10, not sure what the name is and it is not so important.
What is important, is the anoying fact that it only has ONE USB PORT!!! That means if I want to browse the internet with my USB dongle, I cannot use my mouse! Of course I could go buy a USB hub, but where is the fun in that?
The solution was found in an Acer Aspire ONE! Yeah, apparantly the first one of their netbook series. It has no monitor. It was broken when I got it so I ripped it off and cut the cables. VGA out is fine!
I have one lying around. It is probably 10 years old, has a 32 bit intel Atom, a wireless network card and THREE!!!! USB PORTS! THREEE!!!!! Yes, thats more like it!
It has no display. It was broken when I got it so I ripped it off and cut the cables. VGA out is fine! The acer is “just” a keyboard with a battery 😀
I Installed debian on the old acer, using a cheap 8gb USB stick as the boot drive, plugged in my 4G Modem, configured it as a router for both ethernet and wireless.
Now I can browse the internet on my new acer by using the old acers internet connection… AND use my mouse! HURRAH!
The shit geeks come up with to solve problems sometimes…… :p
Allright, so a language saved me from getting shot today!!
I was sitting around in a garden when a girl came up and started looking at me. She started smiling while waving a gun around.. A guy she was with told her something in Arabic, she slowly pointed the gun towards me!
I assumed the guy ordered the girl to shoot me me, softly I let out my best arabic “no” which sounds somewhat like when you say “laa” with a strange knick at the end of the laa sound.
She lowered the waterpistol! I had saved myself from being drenched by a two year old daughter of my arabic neighbour!
I told the guy: “Phew, i guess my arabic saved me there…”
We both giggled and agreed!
Well, I am not entirely a pilot…yet, however, I know a great deal about airplanes.
In approximately 3 months, I will test wether or not I am able to land an Airbus A320 without the proper training. Why without the proper training one might ask…
To test the feasability of a passenger with a fligh sim compassion landing a plane. That is the reason. To check if it is possible. I have claimed (without knowing for sure) for 15 years, that I could land a plane if the pilots were no longer available for the job. It is time to put my mouth where my joystick is and actually test that. If you found that sounding abit wrong, I agree with you…
“You known more about these things than 99.9% of the worlds population, and you are still scared of flying?” -Brett the Intern, 2013
I explained to him that It felt like I was wetting my pants aproximately 3 hours, and up ontil the flight occoured…
Abit of history. When I was two years old (1981), I went on an airplane to Malorca.
When I was 15 years old (1994) I controlled a glider (which had an engine) for aproximately 10 minuttes. It kept having an engine, but I controlled the plane for 10 minuttes 😉
Already at that time, I had ample amount of hours on my old C64 with Chuck Yeagers advanced flight trainer, F117 Stealth fighter and alot of other plane related games.
Microsoft flight simulator came along… I went crazy… My room became a cockpit!
My television was removed from its “television position” and used as a monitor. Old keyboards had stickers on them explaining what they do… It looked somewhat like this.. Actually, it looked exactly like this 🙂
Itteration 17550446 (Lost TV-show reference)
Eventually, I replaced the 40″ and the 20″ with three 24″ I do not have imagry of the 3 monitor setup, I only have imagery of the first two monitor setup, with Saitek pro fligh controls.
It appeared like this: (Please note, this was a tech test, not a flight test, and I am well aware that I am clipping some trees which, would most likely not be survivable)
The setup is run by THREE computers… not one.
-The two monitors displaying the A2A Spitfire is controlled by ONE computer running Microsoft Flight Simulator X
-The laptop displaying the basic instruments (one laptop, one computer :))
-A crap computer displaying the monitor between my legs displaying radar and other stuff the Spitfire did not have 🙂
It looked like this… (Actually, you can wait for that untill part #2) 🙂 or not…
Update 0.6.3 is a carrier nerf, once again!
Who am I?
I am #37 as of this time in the 6th Season Ranger leaderboard in Avrg. planes destroyed.
I am #22 as of this time in the 6th Season Ranger leaderboard in max planes destroyed
I am #14 as of this time in the 6th Season Ranger leaderboard in max damage caused.
I am #2 as of forever in the FIFTH season, Lexingon in max damage dealt.
-We’re disabling the “Alt”-attack feature for tier IV and V carriers — this change should bring better balance to carriers at lower tiers, where most warships have weaker or non-existent AA defenses
#Morons… that is how it was ships simply did not have AA! The reason CV’s are “overpowered” is because people have developed what is normally considered “skill” now, you leave it all up to an AI… How about having warships just shoot their guns without aiming aswell? It would balance things!!!! Sure….. How about having the automated torpedo lead indicator removed from torpedo capable-ships? 😀 As if…
-Fighters may now be removed from a fight with enemy aircraft via an “Alt” attack — when you withdraw a squadron from action this way, it’ll always lose one aircraft. (This rule will apply to all carriers except Saipan.)
#This will not apply to Saipan? are you kidding me? An already overpowered carrier is being buffed once more? Of course… there would be no incentive to buy that piece of “pay-to-win” shit if you morons didn’t put in more goodies… Where is the skill requirements for playing pay-to-win? Nowhere.. You pay… you win!
-Once a carrier is destroyed, her squadrons will maintain their position after fulfilling a particular order rather than returning to the carrier’s final sinking location
#Hurray! You used logic for once! Not enough to keep me engaged though!
The developers of this game has one thing in mind.. Making money. And that, is a very bad thing! I will not adhere to this bullshit any longer! Feel free to delete my account, you know who I am!
A few years ago, I was watching this guy on Youtube, he put up some outrageous claims about radiation, radioactive isotopes and the Fukushima disaster.
I decided I wanted to shove abit of science his way and he completely freaked out 😀
He responded like this:
Link to his irrational rant:
Thunderf00t came 1 year later and set the record straight once and for all 🙂

Hmm, yeah, I am having the worst rating ever in the Ranger in Ranked battles.
Why is that so? because I deal very little damage to ships, but I do take out most of the enemys planes. That is what 2-0-2 setup of the Ranger is for.
It labels me as a very bad player though!
Some say, but fighters fighting planes is an automated process. That is incorrect. Strafing is the key here.. If you do not manage to strafe the enemy planes, your ships are fucked. Strafing requires skills, especially with the bugs involved in strafing. I have discussed this HERE
Now to my current stats for today… Ranger (2-0-2) Ranked, Lexington (0-1-3) Random
Sad…bad :p Actually, both are fairly good, however wows-numbers.com ignore AA skills and state so as they think it requires no skills to shoot down enemy airplanes with airplanes… They are wrong!
Had I not wasted my efforts on shooting down airplanes, I might have been abit higher placed than #14 in the ranger sorted after max dam this season..
In comparison, I was #2 with the lexington last season where I wasted little time with fighters. The ranger though, cannot stand alone, if enemy decides to strike the ranger and I do not carry fighters, I am dead and the next thing that happens is that my teamsmates dies
Go back to the game, stop bothering the CV players. It does not help team morale to call anyone a n00b..! In the game where I scored the 244k I sank 4 enemy ships, we had 3 ships remaining, they had 1 carrier and we lost the game… I was speechless!
