The benefit of a server

Before a day or two or more, I created a file server using FreeNAS Operating System (OS). My PC was a Celeron D 2,4 GHz, with 256 Mb. I use mainly that file server for storing my files, but also for FTP access to my files from the internet, and for a torrent downloader. Not bad, uh?

FreeNAS is an excellent OS, it does a lot of things while taking only 50Mb of my hard disk. It could be a Web Server, with SSH protocol, it can also manage RAID 5 disks. The bad thing with FreeNAS is that it isn’t a Game Server. By Game Server I mean you could install some games, and then you can be given an option which game to play, and then play it. You don’t need to enter your desktop to do that, and after all, anything else could use an amount of memory that the game would benefit from it.

Oh, and don’t take me wrong. By saying games, I don’t mean text based. I mean real 3D games. People got bored opening their PC, entering Windows or Linux or MAC, and then starting a game. WE DON’T WANT TO ENTER THE DESKTOP, WE JUST WANT TO PLAY THE DAMN GAME. That’s the reason for the ban we get from the society. As gamers we don’t get what we deserve. That’s the reason for behaviors like the mans’ from the video.

The reason I’m writing this nonsense is because I finally met something that is simply working without errors. GO GET’EM FREENAS.

Ikariam scripts

So, I saw in my blogs’ stats that someone came by, by searching for “how to install ikariam sexy theme”. Once more this saws how people, even if they don’t express in words, are easily read. Google owns us all. But what if we own google? I advise you to find out how to use smart keywords in order to find really useful things like top secret documents of governments, or databases with user names and passwords, or even online webcams with no security.

Anyway, back to our subject. First of all you have to use Firefox to install a script that will make your life easier. Then you shall add the greasemonkey add-on (by the way, as a good (wo)man that you are, think of a donation). Now to the most interesting part, by searching in google for “greasemonkey scripts” you will find what you want, but that would compromise you! So here is the direct link. You can thank me in comments by the way. Note here that some of these scripts are considered illegal.

This will be your teacher from now on

This will be your academy from now on

Now, as for the useful ikariam scripts here are some. Ikariam Reloaded removes the silly ads, and replaces them with some useful stats like your selected city generals. But be careful with that! You can be found because you use too much bandwidth of their servers. Ikariam Empire Board, adds a table in the bottom of the page with information about all of your colonies. By using that you are not able to be found since it only reveals information once you’ve opened the exact page that it wants. Ika-core-SearchTools, adds an information bar on your left, with search capabilities, but you should be aware that you are easily spotted by using the search tool to find a players’ cities. However Ika-core-SerchTools are useful for their feature to inform you about you total army in your cities page, without going to your barracks, and also adds information on your city, about which buildings are available for your resources to upgrade.

And finally our most interesting part, the Sexy Theme. You can use it freely and no one will find that. I guess the wankers are using it already. Happy gaming fellow humanoids. God be with you!

Update: The problem for finding a players’ cities is solved with that tool.

Update 2: Seems that for some reason that page is down. But we were winning and without it, so…

Update 3: Here is the list of the legal scripts.

Update 4: The tool for finding players cities is down for sure.

Update 5: Seems the the script is valid in Chrome, too!! Wooooooooooooooo.

Did I hear virtualization?

I never thought it would come up so quick again. Hot hot hot…

A friend of mine introduced me to this game, Erepublik (this is a referer link. It would benefit me if you used it as it is, so you are bound to use it as it is). It is supposed to be a virtual society, a real whole world, with the temporary exception of some small countries. By registering you become a civilian from the country you chose. There you will have to apply for a job, easy thing contrary to the real world, work, something which last only one click instead of the hours we work in real life, and train in the army, also easy one clicky.

The interesting part is that it has its own political system, marketplace and press. After some time you are able to create a party and have members in it. You are to have elections and be the president of the country. Vote for taxes, money deposits, alliances, create hospitals and lots of other things. Create a newspaper and inform people about your opinion for how things go, and affect their opinion about a matter of things. You are able to found a company and create items,  construct, or provide a particular service, something that someone will need to develop himself or his company ingame.

The more interesting part is wars (as always)! You actually have lots of possibilities. A political take over (PTO) for example. Croatia has that problem now, as it approved many immigrants in the country. These immigrants created a party, that after some months got the majority. They raised export taxes, and lowered import taxes, so their economy was blown to hell. After that its territories were conquered. But Croatians did not give up. They have developed an outgame marketplace in which everyone may be informed which companies are national and buys from them, even if they are more expensive than the others. Also they are united against the common enemy, and will soon start a revolution war to free their territories, and lastly they have one united party in the upcoming elections to vote.

That proves my theory that wars unite people. We could actually make real life wars every day so humans were united too, and since from  mistakes you learn – and war is a big mistake(they say) – your education would be academic!!!! Just think about it. If our politicians played this game they would not be so noobs right now.

You can read about the leading alliances, here and here. Also read your countries history, and finally get informed about the ongoing World War I, World War II, and World War III. YOU ARE OUTLAW PETE.
