Ten RTS players strewn across that, that hackerspace, and what happens to your own personal Internet? I just the other day got...a zerg rush was sent by my staff at 10 o'clock in the morning on Friday. I got it yesterday [Tuesday]. Why? Because it got tangled up with all this LAN gaming going on on the Noisebridge.
They want to play vast amounts of games over in the Mission. And again, Noisebridge is not something that you just dump something on. It's not a big truck. It's a series of not-tall-enough walls. And if you don't understand, the Alonzo Church Memorial Classroom can be filled and if it is filled, when you put your message in, it gets in line and it's going to be delayed by anyone that puts into that tube enormous amounts of gamers, enormous amounts of gamers.
Now we have a separate Department of Defense internet now, did you know that?
Do you know why?
Because they have to have theirs delivered immediately. They can’t afford getting delayed by Zergbridge.
Maybe there is a place for a commercial net but it’s not using what consumers use every day.
It’s not using the messaging service that is essential to small businesses, to our operation of families.
post above me is incoherent and totally sounds like markov chain text
I usually try to address concerns but i haven't been able to parse the above text.
Blocked Server Ports
Isky just called MonkeyBrains (the faster, and much more reliable of Noisebridge's Two ISP's) and they said if we email firstname.lastname@example.org the ports we need open, they'd be happy to hook us up by opening them since NoiseBridge has a static IP :) SO, we need to preferably send them a one time mail with ALL of the ports that we want opened. I personally haven't tried the server browser of anything non-steam on the MonkeyBrians ISP (have you?) but have multiple people have not been able to browse any server lists thru any steam games. SO, would anyone like to help me compile a list of all the ports we need opened here quickly and send off/let me know when to send off our request? Their customer support is instant.
