    I'm a former Field Engineer for General Motors. I've worked professionally as a mechanic for many years. Cars are my thing. I've restored classic vehicles and have repaired thousands of others. I enjoy electronic gizmos of all kinds and PC building. Got a question? Maybe I have an answer.

  1. There was a mass exodus about 10 mins ago. Login works, but gameplay becomes unresponsive after a few seconds.
  2. Hmm. I Saw the message on my TE Torgue today during the login fit. I was completing some missions last night with him and didn't have any issues nor have I submitted a help ticket. Someone just likes Torgue I guess.
  3. Any known issues tonight? 1 out of 3 login attempts get me into game, but it doesn't last more than a few seconds before stations are unresponsive and I get stuck in the loading screen trying to leave with the 'Waiting for server' in the system tray. Basic networking troubleshooting done on my end and different PC has same issue. On one of my login attempts I saw a message in the chat box about "Your account has been frozen for future GM actions, please wait" then shortly after another message "You account has been thawed." Wondering if that message was related.
  4. High voltage and gasoline? You have my undivided attention.

  5. OK Magoo, here goes: Tower case is 10 years old now, has seen 3 systems in its lifetime: Black Silverstone Temjin TJ10 NVIDIA Edition. Mobo is a 2 year old Asus Republic of Gamers Crosshair V Formula Z. Still sold as an AMD flagship board too. Processor is an AMD FX 8350 Black Edition 8-Core. Runs at 4.5 GHz with minimal heat and no issues. Packed the board with 32 GB of AMD Radeon R9 2400. Video uses a pair of 2GB PNY GTX 660 XLR8. Not much these wont run. I might trade these out for a pair of Titans down the road. Primary storage is a Samsung 512 GB 850 PRO. Plenty fast for anything installed. Other storage is handled in a pair of 2TB Seagate Barracudas in RAID 1, because i'm tired of losing my backups. Then 4 more 1TB Barracudas for anything else. System cooling is handled by a Thermaltake Water 3.0 closed loop cooler. The radiator uses 2 120mm fans and is silent. The case has 3 additional 120s ran through a Zalman MFC2 digital controller. Audio is handled by a SoundBlaster ZxR pushing a set of Klipsch ProMedia 5.1 Ultras. Has a tenancy to shake pictures off the walls. The legacy Creative Alchmey sound drivers give full 3D sound back to EnB. It's nice to hear a rocket launch behind you and explode in front. All is powered by an ancient Thermaltake Toughpower 750 watt. 10 years old and still kicking. A modular power supply would be a nice upgrade. A set of cathode black lights makes the case glow. Lets see if I cant dig up a picture of it... Its a bit dusty, but still works. I took advantage of Black Friday and bought a pair of ASUS GTX 1070 Turbo editions. Took some time and cleaned the case and got the lights working again. Bought the Nvidia branded SLI bridge connector. Had to upgrade the ancient 750 watt power supply for a 1000 watt Toughpower for the extra PCIE connectors.
  6. If the block doesn't fit, get a bigger hammer. If it still doesn't fit, you didn't get a big enough hammer.
  7. Getting the same issue here all day. Here is a screen cap after 3 successful gates then a hang at the loading screen.
  8. Myself, Id like to nominate Terrell, this individual has been a long time player and always seems to have the 411 on what is new. On the other hand I'd also agree to nominate Magoo. This ones for you buddy! Cheers!
  9. Going back to finish Racedriver GRID. When ST2/3 come around I pretty much abandoned it. Might go find a nice full server and frag-out with some Team Fortress 2 as well.
  10. Yes, big thanks to the GMs and Devs for the last few days. Its been quite fun and memorable. Found a Dev hanging out in the Disco Lounge at Joves and was given the CE-X10 'Clydesdale' engine and an Ursa 9 as the reward. Was nice to see 6800 warp speed, even if only for a few minutes.
  11. How cool is that? Have spent several hours out there with Seleana farming for the Sail, and I know how how much of a pain they are to find. Glad to see that there is still some dignity left in the galaxy.
  12. Around here...somewhere. OK, I admit it, i'm lost.

  13. Had made it to level 135 last night and upgraded my hull. Logged in this evening only to find Higginz at level 0 and with no name assigned. Update: Renamed "Character 1" back to Higginz and logged in. All my skills, spent points and items are intact. Cool.
