  1. Elis' Speculative Fiction Thinktank - Currently World Building

    A few questions which I could use chemistry/metallurgy/geology input for: First of all, if an earth like planet was to have technology of early Renaissance, but with Iron being very rare and instead the main metal being bronze or similar, could it work? Which technologies or areas would be...
  2. Server Issues?

    The forums just went down for ~10 mins or so, just making sure Admins are aware/someone can look at the server logs and figure out what went wrong. EDIT: And again just now.
  3. BattleTech [Gauging Interest for games/campaign]

  4. GPU troubles with BIOS Recognition

    Alright, in short, the BIOS recognises the Graphics Card if I put it in the PCIx4 slot, but not the PCIx16 slot. Testing with a flatmates graphics card, the x16 slot does recognise other cards. Is my card just shafted, any other ideas, if yes, any other information required from me?

  6. Werewolf: A Forum Affair II - Signups

    Werewolf: A Forum Affair II or; How I learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Server It was cold, near Winter still. March was ending, and plans were in action to cause mayhem. Scripts were embedded, and the server breached - come April 1st, the madness would begin again. Evening all, 's...
  7. Do my legwork for me; or, I've been out the loop: help suggest bits.

    So late next month I finally get to fix my desktop after I managed to break the MoBO, the Proc and probably the PSU in a short of some kind. This will also allow me to get back to streaming!

  16. [Werewolf: Archives] Werewolf: A Forum Affair - Forces of Order win!

    It was a cold and snowy day, though no-one gave two ****s as they were all inside on their computers, the lazy sods.

  18. Spoiler tags, and use thereof for images

    So it's likely this will mostly be relevant to Off Topic, but I can imagine a few ways it's relevant to the On Topic boards as well. Essentially, it's became common practice (for good reason!) to put large images such as screenshots within spoiler tags. This is all well and good, but due to the...
