battlefield 2 – bad company 2

by on Jun.01, 2010, under by marc, misc articles

i found myself playing bad company 2 a lot the last couple of weeks. the atmosphere in the game is just fantastic. although i think the game lacks a bit variety in terms of the maps that are available but nevertheless it still is a very nice game.

very nice music – Arenna

by on Nov.07, 2009, under by marc, misc articles


today i was on the lookout for some free music. i am editing some world of warcraft in-game recordings i did the other day. in order to have some nice background music i need free music. the guys at youtub would have to remove the sound from the video. they actually did that already.

i regularly check in order to find some “new & fresh” music. the link brings you directly to a site featuring a band called “Arenna”. i think they are spanish. anyways, i like bands like kyuss, unida, slo burn, hermano … you definetly gonna like Arenna!

check it out on!

unfortunately there aren’t any good quality videos available on youtube but i found one that i really like.

f*cking mdnsresponder – removed

by on Nov.04, 2009, under by marc, misc articles

i purchased several adobe products and ever since i kept receiving complaints from my firewall that this thing wanted to communicate with outside world. as a matter of principles i don’t want that to happen – call it paranoid but that’s how i am 🙂

the whole thing started during my monthly system check and clean ups. i decided to tell my firewall to deny the access and also configured my linux server to keep that thing away from the outside world. while i was doing my monthly windows-sitting to keep it clean and smoothly running i spotted a service called like shown below.
i instantly fired up my browser and started to google that shit. what I found was an adobe website explaing what this thing does and how to remove it. so if your machine comes up with the same strange behaviour just follow the instruction how to remove mdnsresponder given on the adobe website
the thing i hate the most is when i spend almost an arm and a leg on something and then this whole things turns out to become control and communicate with out asking permission. evil adobe!

phpbb3 – different behavior for opening links

by on Nov.02, 2009, under by marc, misc articles

because i am maintaining a bulletin board over at rising from ashes which is for the world of warcraft guild i am a member of. i needed to find a solution for a wee problem with phpbb3.

by default phpbb3 opens links in the same browser window when you click on a url from wtihin a posting. to be honest that sucks. i can understand the reason for that but nevertheless i wanted to open the links in a new bowser window/tab.

after asking google i found the solution all i needed to do is to edit 3 files by just copy&paste the the code from the link.

maybe someone can use this information 🙂

free fast paced 1st person shooter – warsow 0.5

by on Oct.24, 2009, under by marc, misc articles

i thought by myself…a game or two besides world of warcraft could be quite nice. back in the days i was a quite skilled and successful unreal tournament player (ut99). in fact i was in one of the most successful european clans. i played many tournaments (LAN and internet) and I won many prizes. the clan I played for was a pioneer in making online games a business. “eSports” became big at that time.

well, anyway, i found this free to play 1st person shooter. its name is warsow. it runs just perfectly smooth on my linux machine and is really fun to play. its different approach is what i really like. it is set up in a comic style futuristic environment. due to the fact that it is based on the good old quake3 engine it is fast as hell. that’s what i like as well. 🙂

i just downloaded it from the official website and started it after i unzipped it to a folder. that was me ready to go. well, i needed to check their wiki and clicked on the faq section in order to find out how to add bots to the game. of course i will soon play it against others on the net but my movement and aiming became a bit rusty over the years. i prefer to have a bit of a practice before i hit the road.

here is the official game trailer.
