Help for 3d newbies
Okay boys and girls, I'm posting up another tutorial for the 3d world. But this is more of a tech support session than program help. I'm a CompTIA A+ certified computer tech, and I'm going to share some knowledge to help you either upgrade your system to better utilize 3d, and give you advice if you're going to build or buy a new system.
First let's start with your motherboard.
The motherboard is that big discolored thing that everything is plugged into. the motherboard to a computer is like a body to us; it holds our organs, and gives us movement.
You will need a board with an AGP (Accelerated Graphics Port). This is the bare minimum that you will need. NEVER EVER SETTLE FOR PCI.( Unless it's PCI-E. Much better and a helluva lot faster) The AGP slot is usually brown on most boards, and has a clip to hold your video card in place. Newer or specialty motherboards can have different colored ports *woo!*.
Next up is RAM (Random Access Memory) I recommend DDR2 (Dual Data Rate). There are a
Yogscast Tekkit: Alternate Timeline ch. 4The sun was shining brightly in the sky above Sips and Sjin as they wandered across a plain. Their feet ached, and they had been walking for so long that Duncan's volcano was no longer visible on the horizon. Wherever they were, they didn't seem to be very close to their compound or their secret base. "Alright, here's what we should do," said Sjin, "Let's go to the Captive Creeper and talk to Minty. She'll probably have some ideas."Yogscast Tekkit: Alternate Timeline ch. 41 year ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"That's a great plan, Sjin, but there's only one problem with that," replied Sips, "We don't know where the fuck we are."
"Let me just get my bearings, and we'll find our way back home."
"Look, there's an ocean over there," Sips pointed, "Something tells me we should go that way."
"Alright. Do you have any boats?"
They checked their inventories. There was not a single boat between them, nor was their enough wood to craft one. "God damn it," said Sips, "Now we have to walk all the way back to the jungle, get some wood, make some boats… You know what? Forget

Today however, your mom decided to give you a little task.
"I need you to go to the store." She says.
"Why me?" You ask back.
"Because your sisters are helping around the house and you're just staring at a computer screen for...The past three hours." Oh so it was three hours? You lost track of time so easily when you were entertained.
Who are you? Well, your friends call you either Eps (your preference) or Zerere (your common DA nickname) and there are a few who call you Mia, but that's another story.
For now, you just like to be known as Eps. It sounds way better then your real name anyway.
What is important now is that you get dressed, wash your face and teeth and go off to buy what ever the heck is on the list your mom gives you.
Hiiragi's Yogpet challenge: out of nowere.Like most kids, at the end of the school day I go home. And that’s how it began. It was near the end of the school day; Thursday. My favourite day, for a number of reasons which I won’t get into now, I consider it my ‘lucky day’ because all the best things in my life mostly happened on a Thursday. Today was definitely a lucky day. My teacher, Miss Miller, let us go from school. Everyone swarmed around the exit doors as they rushed for their homes. I lagged behind all of them, waiting for my friends, Lizzie, Aimee and Ellis. We all got together then walked out of our school; we talked about the day’s antics while walking out the doors. We went our separate ways; as we live no were near each other. I lived quite some time away, so I normally take the bus, but as today was Thursday I walked. I took a detour through Boscombe; I was hungry and I felt the need to look into some shops, just for the heck of it.

Tails woke up the next morning to birds chirping outside his window, sunlight pouring into his room, a soaked diaper, and his thumb in his mouth.
"Oh wow, I didn't think I'd be this wet. And why was I sucking my thumb? I haven't done that since I was four. Oh well, I'd better go have Ebony change me." Tails sat up and looked at his clock. "It's 9 o'clock already? I slept longer that I thought, my parents will be home in 2 hours so I'd better get washed up."
Ebony was in the kitchen already making breakfast, which looked and smelled like bacon and eggs. "Oh, I see someone finally decided to wake up. Did you sleep well?" Ebony didn't even have to turn around to see Tails come into the kitchen.
"Ebony, do you think that you could change my diaper real quick?"
"Well sure, although I don't think you need a new diaper. It's best to change out of that one and get you cleaned up so your p

I've wrestled with an opening to this piece for the last week, and I've finally decided to just go ahead and lay it all out for those who wish to make use of it.
Knowledge is power, and knowledge of climate-change science is serious lacking for a lot of reasons. Those reasons, however, are NOT what the True Believers in 'man-made' global warming would have you believe.
A lot of people on this site believe that things are not as dire as the heavily politicized IPCC and those governments which back it, would have us believe. Most of you do not really have the time to find the information you need to counter the often scientifically illiterate responses you get from those who would blame the human race, and more specifically the Right / Conservatives / Christians / the US / White people, for what we believe is just another phase in half a billion years of climate change.
They are the ones who, fo

It’s weird how this egg thing works- but I think I got it. If I say ‘Hi!’ it will flash once. Sorta like saying Hi back to me. I try to teach it words, but most of the time I just talk to the egg. It responds- so I am not crazy! Sometimes I just talk about school to it, other times I watch videos with it (Zelda music), and then I type up stories in front of it. It hasn’t even hatched, but it is like- my (third) best friend! I moved most of my stuff by the draw I kept it in, my rug to sit on and a pillow or two. I close the draw and leave a crack at night so I can sleep. The flashing distracts me a lot… One night- I heard a crack, and another. I just thought it was my turtle walking around in its tank so I went back to sleep.
When I woke up, I put on my glasses and went to check on the egg- but it wasn’t there! I started to freak out, since I was home alone, and thought someone stole it. I started looking around when I saw something move from behin
Realities of Climate ChangeClimate Change is a Reality. This cannot be questioned. It has been going on ever since the Earth's atmosphere formed, and it will be going on quite a long time after the Human race vanishes from the face of the Earth. It is going on now; it was changing during the Little Ice Age. The Midieval Warm Period. The Dark Ages cooling. The Roman Warm Period.

Skeptics- the ones who matter- do not deny climate change, or global warming. That science is Sound. But when the representation of science becomes politicized- as with the Unproven theory of 'man-made' global warming- then we begin to run into problems.
When the media, most politicians, or even people on this site, claim that 'denialists' are nothing but dogged, ranting right-wing bloggers or AM radio hosts, 'creationists,' in the pay of 'Big Oil,' they are at the very least being Specious. Claims that the Bible has anything to do with the situation, are not even worth considering. In fact the entire pur

Sips awakened with a start. The full moon was hanging in the air above him and from all around him, he could hear the heavy breathing of the sleeping hatters on the ground.
He sat up in his bed and looked around for the sound that had awoken him. Through the moonlight he could see the large outline of Trott and the much skinner outline of Smith besides him. However, Ross was nowhere to be found.
He sighed, now fully awake and decided to go down and get some water from their only source of water: the cobble generator.
He claimed down the stairs and cupped his hands around the spot where the water was leaking though, taking a few drinks before standing back up and staring at the platform where their caldron sat. As he did so, however, he felt his whole body freeze with fear as a shape arose from besides the caldron.

The BeginningThe echoing sounds of cries ripped through the night within the heavens, like a sword shattering the surface of a mirror. Lightning cracked the clouds above and thunder roared to life in deafening waves of sound. Wildlife fled in terror, panic rising in the hearts of the creatures while the very ground rumbled its fury, the oceans crashing and the stars themselves beginning to glow brighter as many took flight and arched across the sky through glimpses of un-clouded darkening mist.

In order to get a tighter grasp on those I do.
I have gone down roads without destinations,
To accidentally stumble upon heaven, and bits of hell.
Miles of concrete gobbled up by underbellies of cold machines,
And at my lowest points, I have counted my blessings.
I am okay with loss now.
I am okay with picking up the pieces.
And I am definitely okay with trying.
Minutes and hours have passed where I have felt nothing but content inside this heart,
And in that,
I am okay with crossing out calendar days, which held moments of despair.
Because I have realized:
After the storms have passed, and the earth is busy dissolving the aftermath,
Darkness falls, and in the mean-time,
The sun will always peak over the horizon.
I will have a childs eyes, seeing everything for the first time,
And everything will be beautiful again.

So I poked it to see if it was real and, get this, IT STARTED TO FUCKING FLASH! I almost dropped it- almost. So then I called up Bear to see if the same thing happened to her. Minus the new town thing.
“A Glowing Egg? Nin, who gave you Pepsi?!” Bear said over the video chat. “It’s real! Look!” I said holding up the egg to the web cam. “Holy Shit! That is weird!” Bear said. “I know! I need to make it- like- a little home in my room or something!” I said. “Don’t go over the top Nin…” “Since when have I ever done that?” “I really don’t wanna sit here all day.” “Fine- Bye!” I said and I hung up the video chat.

“’Favorite’ is a bit of an overstatement, mate.” Trott scoffed, not even bothering to look up from the manual he was reading.
“What’s this Smith?” Ross asked, flopping down onto his cushion “No come back? That’s rare.”
Smith, who was still very much a bunny after failing in finding a way to turn himself back into a human, looked up.
“Sorry,” he sighed, rubbing his eye with a paw, “I’ve just felt sort of off all day.”
“That’s what you get for getting off on Trott so much,” Ross laughed, earning a sigh from Trott.
“No, mate really. I just haven’t been feeling good and-“ Smith cut off as he slumped over in his seat.

The hate and distrust for the different was one of the most common things out there, yet Eps could never really understand why.
On one hand, she had good friends she could trust. The CyRE members and a few who went out of their way to actually try to be nice to her.
On the other hand, not many cared. She was nothing but a robot in the judging eyes of the many, a tool designed for a certain task. That was it and that's how she should be treated.
Loneliness was something that never really left the Eps. Yet she was used to it, she was used to being left alone and, when Brit and the others weren't about or she was off mining by herself, she tended to think.

even as the world continues,
the staccato of sniffles stun,
but what really traps me are your eyes.
How that beautiful gaze transforms
into a portal of sadness and fear,
breaks the heart, if only temporarily,
submerging both spirits into an abyss.
Where is that cheerful smile, I wonder,
a voice I remember laughing, choked,
our tired minds scarcely able to recover,
merely biding our time until it passes.
From this distance I feel helpless,
but never think I don't understand,
that I don't mourn what may be lost,
my silence only a stilled tongue.
This story is still being written
despite some of the ink running,
and the words are drying, stained in time,
yet there remains countless pages ahead.
Would it help if I read to you
so that you could rest your tired eyes?
