How long have you been into video games? What do you like most about them?

 

Oh God, I've been gaming for about as long as I can remember. I grew up on the original NES. What I like most about games would have to be the competitive side and breaking down the mechanics to find the best way to play.

 

 

 

Heyo DL33TED, my question is why did you take the job as Parc Sysadmin?

 

 

Because I'm a masochist. In all honesty I took the job so I can get more and different experience than I get at my actual job as a help desk for a collocation company. In IT the main thing that matters are Certs and experience, and I can only break my computer so many times messing with stuff before it's broken for good.

 

 

 

What do as SysAdmin (could you give the dummy guide explanation, I am not very good with technology )?  

 

I make sure the back end of the game servers work, basically once the servers are online and running my job is done.

 

 

 

What do you think about the forums ?  

 

We have a forum? in all honesty it's a forum, I don't really spend much time on it besides lurking and checking the PArc section, maybe some users could give me some recommendations on the other sections.

 

 

 

What do you think about the rest of the PArc team :3? 

 

Besides Zeus and a few of the MC staff I don't even know who's on the team, I know Short is the MC Sysadmin for PArcMC but if you ask me what they do I couldn't tell you.

 

 

 

DL33TED, how do you relax~?

 

Video Games, Spending time with my furbaby Meesha, breaking/upgrading/tinkering with my PC, reading stories on FimFiction, The usual.

 

 

 

Will you ever learn to control your wife Buzz?

 

from my failed engagement I've learned that controlling wives is just an illusion, you can just lightly hint at what they should be doing and make a sacrifice to the dark god of your choice in hopes they actually do what you want. 

 

 

 

 

What was the worst thing you had to do while working and what was the reason?

 

at PArc? Nothing really, the most painful was figuring out the update procedure for the Terarria server since the other games are updated via a script and Terarria  you have to do via a 3rd party website but that's nothing really.

 

My actual job, replacing a server at one of our major cloud sites following a server crash, 4 hours of spinning up VMs on our back up server and a 2 hour drive to bring a replacement server to the site after working all night.

current gen are shitty version of PC, PC games are quite veried and offer a massive library and it honestly costs the same as a console to make a PC that outperforms them.

With PC's massive library and backlog and emulators I'd say you can't go wrong with PC. Hell my mom is a PC gamer, granted she plays mostly old NES games on a RetroPie my bother and I made to replace her damaged NES.

 

Mario is actual shooting Plasma, obviously.

 

 

are you happy with ponies =)?

 

Who isn't happy with ponies?

Would you rather stay at North Korea for a week, but they were very nice to you. Or would you go to Somalia and everyone is the same?

(I seriously need to stop asking North Korea questions during Q&A's)

How are you the master of SSH? ^_^

Got any Best OS?

What is your Dream Desktop Build? :P

Do you use putty to log in and keep our game servers up to date and running, I don't think so B)  

Also I'm a Baron, not master

 

 

 

Got any Best OS?

Anything other than Mac is good, I don't really have a lot of experience with Linux to say if it's good or not. Windows 10 is fun and a step back in the right direction from Windows 8.

 

 

 

What is your Dream Desktop Build?

Mostly what I have now, ASUS Rampage V with x99 chip, 32GB of DDR4 Ram, OS drives as Intel SSDs, Quad SLI 980s (currently have triple 970 SLI)

All Watercooled and Overclocked of course.

Pretty amazing actually, almost as good as this:

1 hour till my shift starts, if you want your question answered for sure I'd put them in now.

Holy fuck, just remembered. While I was in the Marine Corps I was one of my unit's Brig Chaser, basically escorting Marines to and from the Brig. One of the guys from my platoon got busted for spice and I was the one that had to take him to the brig, that sucked worse than the funerals for the guys we buried that same year (4 died in a car crash, 1 to cancer)

Well, I don't use PuTTy for game servers :P

Only web server ;)

All Time? probably Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

 

 

 

* Best game now?
 

 

define now...

 

Last 7 years, Spec Ops: The Line. It's the closest I think anyone that hasn't been in the Military to understand how being in combat and PTSD can really get.


Oh yeah, and also (I don't think anyone has asked yet)

 

Best Dank Meme? ;)
