A new poll posted: http://www.blackviper.com/bbs/issues-offering-a-bbs-to-the-planet/shutdown-bbs-(forums)/ Should I shutdown my BBS/Forums? A (rather long) explanation why I am asking this question is at the link. Members can vote, guests can read it. I encourage all forum members to read (all) of it and give me their honest opinion. This question and Poll is only for the BBS and not the content found on the entire domain. My install guides, services guides and rants will continue to be maintained for the foreseeable future. I thank you in advance for your support. Comments here are [Continue Reading]
I modified several things throughout the domain. Mainly the following: The home page is now directed to WordPress, of which I will use to convert my old content over as time allows.

Today marks the day that I turn 39. :O Happy B-Day BV! 🙂 In fine tradition, I updated my About BV page to keep it current.

I updated my World of Warcraft character stats to reflect that my main priest is level 85.
Todays FFIV newsletter spam made me laugh. I played FF14 for about 2 hours after it was hot off the press. In its state, I cannot see how anyone can turn the game around to make it any better. Basic gameplay mechanics are wrong as well as the lack of a tutorial of any sort. Which ends up with you killing one rabbit, then make a shot at another and die… for hours. Screw that. I understand that FF14 “just came out” and it does not have the development time [Continue Reading]
