  1. I'll probably start a beta thread and let people edit and proof read, as well as taking the plain text and putting it wherever they please.
  2. It certainly can be! I can start super-duper immediately really, I've just been prioritising mapping.
  3. Worth noting that was just specific entities while I was making those containers. Some are fine, some cause crashes, assumedly depending on complexity.
  4. child soldiers that kiiiiiiiiiiill
  5. Yep, sorry. They're intended for businesses, so they know they can charge way more than they're worth. There were no issues with the ZyXEL firewall after getting it set up, bearing in mind it was used to keep patient records safe. It goes far above and beyond what you need in terms of functionality, but unfortunately there's a big jump between Cisco pseudo-router firewalls and proper specialised firewalls like this.
  6. Not meeting all criteria, no. The cheapest I ever got installed at work was from ZyXEL. They were upwards of £100 each, and that was a bulk order. Decent value for money considering what they can do, but it'll take a bit of know-how to set them up. You could look into crappier, cheaper plug and play things, but I doubt you'll find a reliable one that doesn't kill your speeds and offer proper traffic moderation.
  7. I figured I'd be able to offer some insight, it being my job and all, but it's cool. I even said "nah you do what you want" because I figured you'd get antsy. This is the place for advice! It might not agree with your preconception, but that's no reason to take offence. Me saying "you're doing much more than you need to, but if it makes you feel better then go for it" shouldn't be construed as an insult. I'm not out to get you. You can relax. I'm not creeping into your house of a night and taking down your wi-fi set-up. You're looking to spend too much money on an excessive solution, like buyi
  8. Well you were plugging your Patreon so I went and checked it out! I'll say no more, other than suggesting you use different accounts for game developing than you do for that.
  9. I don't mean you as a person. You do you, but you covered a pitfall trap with leaves and advised me to go Google it. It's like inviting your friends over and greeting them with your pants down. Of course they're going to say something. They're not going to start making generalisations about you, but they're going to have to ask why you would answer the door with your pants down, no matter how strongly you insist it's not representative of you as a whole.
  10. ☐Popular internet figure ☐Business ☐Storing sensitive data ☑Home network Biker's looking into enterprise solutions for (currently non-existent) household problems. It's a waste of money, depending on how highly you value peace of mind. I've been here before though. What-if mentalities are basically impossible to compete with. It's totally feasible that a dude in a balaclava and baseball cap will stand outside your house with a laptop and see the contents of your fap folder, and admitting that will prompt some people to shell out for a new router. Same goes for smart TVs collecting usage data
  11. No kidding. use different usernames for that stuff. Now I have to go out and buy brain bleach.
  12. As a network manager, you only need to step up your protection if you're a target (i.e. are a popular internet figure, are storing personal records, don't live in Dark Ages England) or are completely inept when it comes to using the internet. If you are, no amount of protection will keep you safe. Otherwise, the bare minimum will see you just fine. Ironically I have no AV installed, have Windows' software firewall turned off and have an old Linksys WRT45G hunk of junk, and haven't had any issues in over a decade. Work, meanwhile, is a slow week if attempts are in single figures. Like I say, it
  13. Wow, I thought that was me for a second. Everybody keeps pinching my title style
  14. Totally, but so long as it doesn't sacrifice stealth for spooks. Oh, and impossible space too. That's always great fun.
  15. Also IMO the Burricks, Spiders, Ghosts, Apebeasts and Bugbeasts are the weakest part of TDP. I lose any and all interest in that game once every level becomes less about stealth and more about zany monstars. It was necessary to round off the story, but the last few levels are just not about stealth in the same way that the human ones are.
  16. Think of all the additional gameplay options! Laxatives, softeners, hardeners, all used to give the player plus or minus points on the Bristol Stool Chart, which in turn affects smearability. You're onto something.
  17. The light gem doesn't actually measure the visibility of the player in TDM. It measures prettiness.
  18. No, I'm planning a mission with areas of varying difficulty, cost and encouraged approach. I want areas with pinchable wall lights and areas with a good reward that'll cost you a water arrow to get through easily. You need both, rather I want both. Like I super see the merit in extinguishable wall lamps, but you're just rattling on about realism and getting your stuff in and changing what's already there rather than expanding the options at hand. I think some time in the future I'll just go make one.
