HoC Ark: Survival Evolved Diaries - Pwnrock Edition

Found a note in our mailbox this morning thanking me for the t-rex saddle. And I didn't know we HAD a mailbox. Or notes. But first, some background.

Last night after logging in, I kept seeing pleas for help in the chat window. Someone from the tribe "Awesomesauce" had tamed a T-Rex, but at some point during that process, another clan had trapped the unconscius beast using spike walls. He could not get it out and was in a panic. Once a (sometimes lengthy) taming process has begun, only that clan can claim the animal. A reasonable measure against d-baggery. But apparently some guys had taken offence to this taking place on their "property", and responded in the only way available to them on a PvE (non-adversarial) server. I personally found this as infuriating as some D-Bags (note the capital letters) who wall in the location of regular supply drops, sometimes even building an entire fortress around it. Selfish and pointless, considering they aren't even online most of the day. So I mounted my trusty steed/Pteranadon, and set out to help.

HoC Random Deadpool of the Day - 01202016

By Blackwalt - Posted on 20 January 2016

I've almost got Guba totally convinced to go see this on opening day!

This is an Official Deadpool poster. After the break see Ryan Reynolds' appreciation of the RomCom style poster shared on his twitter feed.

And yes, Deadpool really does open on Valentines Day. I would go with Graybush or Stormblade but neither of them are willing to break the restraining order(s).

HoC Random Sarcasm of the Day - 01192016

By Blackwalt - Posted on 19 January 2016

Apparently our mechanic was entertained by the Squirrel Incident

Sorry. Left out that this receipt is for a checkup on our other car, the Hyundai.

I know it's unusual for our sarcasm of the day to come from someone other than Coxxorz but he has been slacking off.

We enjoyed the The Governor General of Canada's Winter Celebration this past weekend

As well as skating (photo after the break) we also enjoyed snowshoeing, tug of war, biathlon target shooting, curling, and free snacks!

HoC Random Squirrel Stash of the Day - 01142016

By Blackwalt - Posted on 14 January 2016

So I haven't opened up the front of the CRV for a while...

Today when I opened up the engine compartment to top up the windshield wiper fluid I found this.

Now I admit that fairly often it (the CRV) sits in the driveway for a few days at a time. Without being driven because technically it is in my driveway a lot. Still, I did not expect a squirrel to set up his second home in it.

I would have liked to have seen his little squirrel face when his stash drove off on him.

HoC Random Coffee Break of the Day - 01122016

By Blackwalt - Posted on 12 January 2016

Some of our coffee breaks are more interesting than others

All I can add is Coxxorz was not with us today. Although...

I kid. The truth (allegedly) is out there.

Not wishing to boast or anything, but it's been 9 years since I managed 100% completion in a video game. (Mass Effect) I will admit I needed some help from Google to complete the two last achievements, but otherwise it entirely my doing.

Ark: Survival Envolved - Shotgun! Shotgun! Shotgun!

HoC Ark: Survival Evolved Diaries #5

You all know I have been waiting for this moment.

At level 30 I unlocked the Simple Pistol. And it was good. But something was lacking. Not enough oomph!

At level 35 Ark: Survival Evolved gave me the solution to this problem.

The Shotgun for a mere 18 engram points. LEARNED

City of Ottawa now available in Minecraft block form

By Blackwalt - Posted on 10 January 2016

geoOttaWOW has created "a Minecraft world based on data sets used in geoOttawa"

Above is a photo of the Minecrafted center block of the Parliament Building. It took some help from Rolly to get Guba and I to this point but we managed. The individual buildings and roads are not built directly in Minecraft but 3D formed out of Minecraft blocks based on the geoOttawa data. It was still cool to wander around the Parliament blocks and drop down to the canal.

    The recently-unveiled GeoOttaWow lets Minecraft players explore and refashion Ottawa's streets, houses, train tracks, as well as major buildings like Parliament Hill and City Hall.

HoC Random Offering of the Day - 01092016

By Blackwalt - Posted on 09 January 2016

HoC Ark: Survival Evolved Diaries #4

Last night Coxxorz and I were once again feeding our addiction to Ark: Survival Evolved. We both had trouble getting into the server which made it much worse when Coxxorz locked up and disconnected.

His character was still there as far as I could see. In the middle of nowhere which is a recipe for disaster in ARK, a world populated by carnivorous dinosaurs.

    Blackwalt: "Did you want me to plant a torch so you can find your body if you don't spawn back here?"

    Coxxorz: "No. That would be advertising where I am to the dinos!"

    Blackwalt: "Oh, okay..."

So I put up a sign instead...
