Just resharing as some of you might like it.
Contest runs for August only, so be quick about entering it. ^^

If you lack a bitcoin address you can get a web wallet via Xapo for example here: http://xapo.com/r/WVN6EM5
The account is free, there are no fees attached to sending bitcoins from Xapo (tho you must send at least 50k satoshis from xapo to none-xapo addresses per transaction) and therefore it is my favorite web wallet so far.

If you rather want full control over your bitcoins, load the offline wallet Bitcoin QT (called Core): https://bitcoin.org/en/download

You will have to load the 48~ GB blockchain of Bitcoin tho... why light offline wallets like Electrum can be a good thing (it loads the blocks that concern your BTC addresses first, then everything else).

Electrum is found on this page: https://bitcoin.org/en/choose-your-wallet
under "Desktop" (any operating system listed there).

All Wallets displayed on this page (see link next to Electrum) can be used actually, but some are more secure than others, what all of these share is this: They are provably not scam wallets (stealing your bitcoins in one or another way).

Anyway, Happy Birthday ShapeShift!

Edit: saw a newer estimate on how many GB bitcoin's blockchain needs now (48 GB omg xD).
It's hard to believe, but ShapeShift is one! Celebrate with us every day of August by entering for a chance to win limited edition shirts, "party hat" tips and more. Enter today!

If you ever played RCE (real cash economy) games, you know how it goes - calculate your ROI (return of investment), what you have to invest and see what other rules there are - deposit fees, withdraw fees, minimum payout threshold and so forth.

Sometimes doing spreadsheets about this topic to a specific game and, for the first time making one public, not much to look at - you just can see where to invest and how much return you may expect - the usual.

To make use of the calculation function (used for boat age in this sheet), make a copy of the spreadsheet, open the copy and edit it. If there is a further problem with the sheet, contact me.

Here is what to do with your not-so-friendly #khaak in khaak sectors and yes, you guessed right we are at #X3TC again.
Option 1: Deploy #Lasertowers according to numbers & types of enemy ships. I went with 57 lasertowers (all i had) against 3 corvettes, 5 bombers and circa 100 scouts, all were defeated and so were 20 of my lasertowers. -> total cost to clear up: 3 million #credits (extremely cheap).
Option 2: Seeing as i have 2 Destroyers & 1 Carrier with 60 heavy fighters on board, i send all of them there... with not a great deal of sucess - all died without defeating much of their opposition, if you put flak artillery on all of them or AoE/Splash weapons on one destroyer and send them/him in, you would probably get them all, with my outcome... -> total cost while failing: past 500 million credits (extremely expensive and totally unnecessary, why having a savefile from before this was a good idea).

Here is a video game bug of a well known game that you probably don't know about (not even official forum seems to have info about it).

The game is X³ Terran Conflict (#X3TC for short) and the #bug i'm refering to is this:
Note that if you plan on playing the game with plot this will spoiler a bit of it (altho reading through Egosoft forums it will already be spoilered anyway).

Spoiler > The Hub < has the unique feature to destroy a ship when using "undock" feature when being on board that docked ship, never actually appeared to me before, but it did today with my Terran Springblossom (an M6, highspeed battle & transport ship), this is surprising as it's ship design is pretty small and shouldn't get into contact with anything around the hub when undocking.

On the other hand the typical "explosion on contact" doesn't appear when using the autopilot of the ship you are sitting in. Which makes this bug even more strange.
Note on "explosion on contact": Appears when the player is in a sector (as rendering is different out-of-sector = OOS), and is normal with enough speed on collision or in many cases with just contact for X1-3 games, like bumping long enough into a station with your destroyer/carrier.

Well, still following my goal of having played all X Plots since #X2 (my first X space game), while waiting for #XRebirth   to fix some more bugs.
Current (personal) bugs include: trade ships being stuck in front of shipyard or a station (to trade with) while endlessly waiting for commands, while the shipyard can be remedied by save-game editing, i haven't found a guide on how to do it with ships yet (and don't like doing it that anyway). As beta patch v2.10 reveals this will be fixed this month, but other noticed bugs will not be adressed until v2.10+.

On the topic of bugs in X3TC, there is the goner plot that can get stuck while you are at the "destroy pirate station"-part, if you get stuck anywhere like this and don't mind getting "STAR modified STAR"-tag in your game (by installing mods not signed by Egosoft, unlike the Bonus Pack from their Download page, which enhances gameplay without the tag), you can try using Interactive Plot Manager found on their forum, it let's you both end a plot or restart a stage or whole plot, ending it will cost credits why it gives a feeling of being balanced. Haven't tested it yet, as i have still none-bugged plots to play before doing so.

And to get away from this bug-ridden topic let's say that i just finished putting up a 56+ station complex for microchip manufacture (250~260 per hour woot), that should speed up my plot progress enormously, also getting near that darn silicon wafers goal without building more than 3 complexes (that produce it as byproduct, otherwise capital ship weapons and misc-stuff, "misc" means not produced by my other specialised complex plans).

On trying it out again, it is one of the "occasional bugs", that doesn't happen every time.

Just saw this in my "something you might like"-list: Impossible Anime weapons made reality. Oo
Had so many nerdgasms... it's a wonder i'm still alive after all of those. :P

Just one way to describe this Zangetsu: AWESOME.
While Sephiroth's Masamune is a bit floppy... due to it's length, but still cuts like ... the real one.

Better stop watching those vids now... might never end my nerdgasms ever. xD

League of Legends... "trying to put this link in"-#6:

signup DOT leagueoflegends DOT com SLASH ?ref=51c6db8bb1645164661909

GOD, FINALLY! can someone explain why google+ is so sissy about a stupid refering link?! Probably wasted another hour just for this article. -_-

PS: You could also put my (summoner) name on signup "Muffin2013", if you don't like the URL. ;)

You know how G+ looks like these days? Like a clone of facebook. Exactly like that. -_- I currently ask myself why google even bothered making a social site if they just end up copying facebook anyway. Answer? ... who knows, write something, maybe you know more than me.

On a sidenote gold & silver prices are on freefall and it might be a good idea to buy gold/silver soon if they ever stop falling (if you got money... that is).

Some intense hours of working on spreadsheet bear fruit: no more wrong numbers for month & year.

The game turned out to be scam, as their Bitcointalk thread was closed after reporting "payment api not working" and following the same strategy of many such "idle endless-profit games".

Asked http://www.badbitcoin.org/thebadlist/ to list it, but they ponder wether they should put website games into their list (or make a seperate list) instead.

What is surprising: there can only be found 1~2 scam accusations for this game (via google), but if you saw my sheet you know why: it takes too long to get anywhere if you don't invest and if you do, it's too late.

Despite them first answering to support emails, then stopping that, removing chat, internal forum and stopped using BCT (as said above) - quite usual behaviour for ponzis & scams alike.

When i just tried playing both an emulated game and an emulated smartphone via #Bluestacks (v.0.8.11) together i had the same problem as before again: a connected #gamepad 's input (Xbox 360 controller) shows effects on both programs when the emulated game is in front, this same issue arrives with other applications, programs and PC games + bluestacks. As this was getting ridiculous and Bluestacks offers next to no settings to fix anything. Here is what i found via google on facebook:
Go into...
EN (Win7): C:\ProgramData\BlueStacks\UserData\InputMapper
DE (WinXP): C:\Dokumente und Einstellungen\All Users\Anwendungsdaten\BlueStacks\UserData\InputMapper
find "GamePads.db" and put it in a newly created folder or remove it altogether.
If Bluestacks was still running at the time of this change, you will have to restart it, for the change to take effect (there is such option in drop-down menu of it's icon in lower-right corner).

Happy playing & emulating everyone. ^^

Edit: There even seems to be a way to tilt in games via keyboard keys, which makes all of those stupid racing games playable, see this for info: http://techrepack.blogspot.de/2014/03/how-to-configuration-control-android.html in essence you open the .cfg file of your game and edit in some lines that state "key = tilt with coordinates in what direction".
How to DISABLE 360 controller in bluestacks (ver. 0.7.11.885)? It is rather annoying when playing games like battlefield 3 with bluestacks running, the...

This was posted awhile ago, but I wanted to say thank you - it still works with the current version.

Minimum length of 2h and no limit, would be to my liking (read your comment about it being impractical...), otherwise include OoT Song of Storms and you have me hooked for as long as your medley goes (but even without, really xD). ^^

After half a year a new playlist! wtf... YES! after finishing to watch both Aquarion animes (and that "3 OVAs in 1"-movie), i just found time to add some of those together.
As always: no quarantee for anything - swiss cheese will be made out of them at some point anyway, like practically every of my older playlists.
Just wish there was an easy & fast way to repair them...

Gemcraft Chapter 2 is on it's best way to be finished, but the wait time isn't over until winter 2013 at least. Gosh, how i can't wait for this & X Rebirth (Egosoft delayed a release several times already). Well, still lots of other things to play with. Have a nice day everyone.
First, about the achievements' look (at the moment): After lots of rethinking and trial-and-error, achievement icons are planned to have this kind of style. These icons are drawn by the game on the fly, using an inner “script language”, almost the same I made for generating the terrain for ...
