  1. Made some repairs to the forum search and hooked it up with a different search engine. Searches should be a lot better now.

  2. Leaving Bulgaria for Germany now. Plane's about to take off. So long, mobile Internet!

      Ja, was Nevermore und Arya haben gesagt. Hat eine toll Tag in Deutschland! (oder Woche) Tell my Oma and Opa I said hi!

      Ah, it's likely that Omnipony's plane will take route above my country, Czech Republic :3

      @Ethan pow : MAIN PONE IS GONE, POST ADMINS !

  3. You know, it's kinda sad that blazing fast fibre-optic Internet is the norm here in Bulgaria, while BC has a law that virtually prevents us from ever getting it.

    1. Senn555

      Senn555

      That really blows. >:C BC looks like an awesome place to live but I absolutely wouldn't be able to stand issues like that, traffic congestion (especially in Vancouver), and Harmonized Sales Tax. Ugh.

      There starting to roll out Fiber where I am but it will take a number of years for any benefit because it's only recently started. I am considering moving to the next suburb though as they are supposed to get it installed within the next year though :P

      Is there not something where you can buy network space from cell providers?

      Even if such a thing exists, I'm sure it would be exorbitantly expensive...

      That's some high quality stuff right there. Too bad I'm broke.

      Wow, that artwork is legit. I think my soul just wept at its beauty!

  4. Pushed a new version of http://pony.fm/. Still not "finished" (sorry!), but there's enough here to scrap the old version entirely now.

  5. Begged an MTEL rep to sell me a prepaid SIM card after the store closed, tethered my phone to my laptop, and set up shop in the attic of my grandparents' cottage - the only place with 3G reception. Now I'm finally online.

      This is about as good as it gets: http://speedtest.net/result/2109135306.png

      But it drops to this if I leave the attic: http://speedtest.net/result/2108659677.png

       

      Yes, it was totally worth it. With that said, my Internet access is still quite limited and I have a rather small bandwidth allotment. This is all running through my cellphone, after all.

      Until March of last year I was still rocking a dial-up connection because I lived in the boonies. When I had enough of that I got a smartphone and tethered it. My paltry reception only allowed me half of a megabit, but approximately 512kbps > 49.2k, so I was happy. Now that I've moved to a proper town I have DSL and manage to accomplish in seconds what used to take me hours.

      Crappy internet, but better than nothing, I suppose.

  6. Hello from Zurich!

    1. Lady Rarity Pony

      Lady Rarity Pony

      Feld0 you're doing it wrong. You need to remain neutral on everything now. For as long as you're in Zurich. ;)

    2. Dizzy Ditzy Doo!

      Dizzy Ditzy Doo!

      Say hello to the towns folk there for me, maybe it'll even reach a few of my relative there! ;3

  7. Hey, you still exist! It's been a while since I last saw you, Kodiak. :-)

    1. Kodiak

      Kodiak

      Ha, thanks for the welcome back ;) I started to miss this place after a while. It's really grown to such an impressive website and community since my last visit.

  8. One of our older members, Hayze, used to have a neon avatar just like yours - but with Fluttershy rather than Dash.

    1. Felix

      Felix

      That's probably it then! Awesome! Is Hayze still around?

    2. Twilight Sparkle ✨

      Twilight Sparkle ✨

      Yeah, I still see him every now and then. Here's his account: http://mlpforums.com/user/387-hayzelestia/

    3. Felix

      Felix

      Actually I checked the gender and it's a female but she was on around the 10th of this month I think. That's when she last updated her profile at least.

  9. Hey Pix, are you ever gonna start taking pixel art requests/commissions again?

    1. Twilight Sparkle ✨

      Twilight Sparkle ✨

      Also, it's great to see you here again! =D

    2. Pix3M

      Pix3M

      Yes, I will. I want to remake avatars of the entire main six with techniques that I MAJORLY overlooked in the past (mainly anti-aliasing and using references), partially because I want to be more fluent with applying them before I offer commissions, and know very well about how much trouble it takes to create them so I could more easily decide what a fair price for my work should be. I am done with Rarity, Pinkie, and Twilight, almost done of AJ (gotta make multiple sizes of her) so all I got...

    3. Pix3M

      Pix3M

      Oh, and I'm also probably not gonna *publicly* offer requests considering the level of popularity I've garnered on dA. Requests can quickly pile up, and doesn't even help that there are a pretty good number of background ponies which gives me plenty of potential requests for people to make, haha.

  10. HP is sending an engineer to my house to repair one of my computers, on their tab. It sucks that the thing is having heat issues, but support like this makes you feel like a king.

      jdor11

      right?

       

    3. Dave247

      Dave247

      Oh, right, forgot about that...

      And yes jdor, it is the white sticky stuff between the CPU or GPU and the Heatsink. It's known by a few different names and helps to draw heat away from the processor.

      Here's the Wiki page about it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thermal_grease

    4. jdor11

      jdor11

      ya the heat sink, thats it, i took apart my computer becuase i had to put in a new motherboard and when i took the heat sink out the thermal gel was on it

  11. Hm. Started working with Laravel. So far, so awesome.

    1. Twilight Sparkle ✨

      Twilight Sparkle ✨

      Laravel has nothing to do with graphics. It's a framework that makes developing custom web applications easier. ;P

    2. Nas

      Nas

      Oh. I have the late-night derps.

    3. Dave247

      Dave247

      So IPB does run on PHP and this is like a addon for it, framework to be exact. I really should start with those web programming tutorials...

    1. Flow

      Flow

    2. Senn555

    3. Dave247

      Dave247

      Must be just the American site because it hasn't changed for me.

    1. My little pwny

      My little pwny

      You're very welcome. I'm going to post an explanation today about why I did it. Here's a hint: $630 USD is today's date, 6/30.

  19. Got my driver's license today! =D

    1. Senn555

      Senn555

      You get a license based on a written exam and not... actually driving? WTH?

       

      Congrats though!

    2. Senn555

      Senn555

      Oh, I see. You take the test after 2 years of driving as a learner. Derp.

    3. ~C. Discord~

      ~C. Discord~

      Hay, we heard you love doin' science. So we got you a mobile laptop-to-car interface, so you can do your science, while driving, and doin' your science!

       

      That's sweet. Still don't have mine, and I'm two years older than you xD; Guess I've found I could walk everywhere, so far. Gonna be getting my license soon, though.
