What does it mean when you get the message "7 of your friends want to be just like you!"?

On NG logs? Nothing. They're random, just like "eight of your reviews have been translated into russian" and "you just became a level 7 paladin". Some are pretty funny.

LOL! Only 7. Poor Spretznaz. My message for today said "40 of your friends want to be just like you!". Not that it matters anyway NG Logs stats don't count for Jack Shit in the Level Up! Lounge. It's Newgrounds achievements only.

Personally I also find it really frustrating if my connection goes down for no good reason whatsoever.

I'm very relieved things got fixed on my end and all it took was a five minutes call. I was worried they were going to send me a new modem or something and I would have to wait for weeks before I would finally have an internet connection again.

Finally after years of lurking around the Under Judgement flashes and seeing some seriously messed up stuff and a lot of awful animations I've reached Supreme Commander rank! It was totally worth it for that 60% extra voting power.

Thankfully my internet has recovered so sites are working again without having to use a proxy. Gotta say, when sites like Twitter and BBC News become unavailable, that's when the ISP have miserably failed. At least now I can do the EXP update without having to delay it.

Haggard, let's just say you're damn lucky right now. You ALMOST missed a deposit last night and that would have been the case had it not been for my internet recovering much sooner than expected.

They sound reliable, unlike Virgin Media who insist it's always a fault on your end. Getting out technicians, claiming it's an issue with your PC, bah! It's always clearly the case that it's a problem with the ISP. That's why I didn't go and phone them up. Others who are also unfortunate enough to be with them got their attention on Virgin Media's help forum.

Gotta say, it's been a few good days for B/P users when you and Ivan get Supreme Commander in the same week. Makes me want to do the update tonight, haha. Sorry, it will be another week until the next update but I'm sure it's already worth waiting for.

So to my understanding there are only just over 200 Supreme Commanders on the site, it's a very exclusive group, so to get two new Supreme Commanders in the space of a day or two must be pretty special right?

Fair enough - I thought that Eyes was more Goth than Planet, but I'll let you judge them both for their own merits and flaws.
So that's the following Alice Cooper album. Hmm, I should focus more on pre-90s albums. Most of the albums from the later era should be leftovers, although I do hear good things about Along Came a Spider.

The Last Temptation
Brutal Planet
Dragontown
Eyes of Alice Cooper
Dirty Diamonds
Along Came a Spider
Welcome 2 My Nightmare

That's the latest few studio albums that Alice has done, off the top of my head.

So Killer is a good one to go with next?
Sure - Anything that's not from the late 70s and early 80s is what you want to aim for. Those weren't his best recording years.
Well, there's still plenty of albums to get even when you leave out a few.

Indeed - you can get a whole lot of Alice albums and you'll end up with hundreds of original tracks.

At least you can head down the pet shop and buy a new mouse. It wasn't like I could walk to the internet shop and buy a new internet.

Back with you guys now, but managing to check the portal from my phone yielded a few B/P. Being on an HTC, I can also get flash to work, so that helps :P

<Start Rant> I'm more than a little disappointed right now. I was having a good race to 50,000 B/P with JustCruizin88 and on the pace we were both moving along at (fair at the time) I would have pipped him to the post by under a handful of votes. I've been checking our stats daily to keep the race to 50,000 B/P interesting. But it's hard to not be disappointed when you compare both of our last 100 B/P attained. JustCruizin88 with an appalling 98 saves and 2 blams. That's a 49 to 1 ratio. Compared to Me 73 saves and 27 blams. That's a 2.7 to 1 ratio. Seems another user has no scruples and apparently a problem with pressing his 0 and 1 buttons. So much for keeping it real and having a decent fair competition. The sooner the Whistle System is re-implemented the better. <End Rant>

I have heard a lot of complaints about Virgin, their internet, their mobile service, even the airlines but I use their wireless internet and it has been flawless here in the states. I just use it for work and classes as I have been required to renew my certificates.

Most excellent! I was wondering when you would finally reach Supreme Commander. Good to see you here, even if it took you almost eight years to get there.

Meh; in 2004 I guess. I watched people make it in 8 months and then others not make it at all. There was a great deal of bullshit entering the portal for a long while and I rather hated it so I lost interest. Lately I have enjoyed watching all the stuff come in. And the fanboys of Bitey have let up with their downvoting of good stuff to keep Adam Phillips on top. All things right themselves eventually.
I had hoped for a better vote power tho. Currently its only 14.58 votes. I hoped it would go at least to 15. Perhaps with the next level :-)

Due to slower activity of the portal, it's not as easy to see more users reaching Supreme Commander in a single week. Clock Day from years back saw tons of rank ups in a single week but all we see is just additional activity and nothing else. What happened here, you may ask? I blame YouTube.

Thankfully the proxy was working on the forums so I went ahead with that. Everything should be all good now but if I see a similar bullshit issue like this again from them, I will look into switching over.

That's the latest few studio albums that Alice has done, off the top of my head.

I'd probably consider getting Along Came a Spider out of all of them. Should be more older material for now.

Well, there's still plenty of albums to get even when you leave out a few.

I can say the same thing about Motorhead.

That's a huge if. While it would be nice to see users getting penalised for dishonest voting, it's very rare that it's happened all this time. Apart from bots and the odd user who was abusing the voting power, very little have been punished. I don't know about any events prior to myself signing up so others will have to fill that in for you.

Maybe they're better over here. Also, it's been a decade since I last went on their airlines and that was for Florida. I will say that the trains are efficient for getting to London from Liverpool within two hours.

I had hoped for a better vote power tho. Currently its only 14.58 votes. I hoped it would go at least to 15. Perhaps with the next level :-)

15 VP isn't reachable until the end of level 53/start of level 54 and then after that it's looking forward to the big level 60 for 16 VP. I'll see 15 VP next April and I only have around 1,050 days until level 60. I don't have so much time with levelling up now.

Careful with what you wish for, I guess.

You just might get it, exactly.

I suppose there's that point there but I'm not going to rush to get another web browser just for that.
I only do that when I'm on my netbook. The screen isn't that big anyway, and it's easy to open up a terminal and start the browser from there.
Eh, I suppose for netbooks it would help not seeing huge ass layouts like Newgrounds.

I blocked the background picture anyway. I mean, it's nice and all, but I rather not look at it the whole time I visit newgrounds.

They better get the fanciest cameras just to shoot footage of me flying around.
They should film that in 4K.
4K? Explain more.

4K resolution. In short: It's a resolution that is used for newer movies (especially computer generated movies, I think). But I think not many cinemas support this standard. And I read that you can't see any difference to the old 2K resolution on a huge cinema screen anyway.

10 Pound is quite a lot. But I think the time traveling wouldn't be that much longer than what I used to travel to gaming shops (about 1 hour and a few minutes to get there). But I only payed about 5 Euros back then for a day ticket. Good god, now a day ticket costs about 10 Euros...
From Liverpool to Manchester is just an hour and to go from Wirral to Liverpool is even further travelling time. Far too much to go to one place on a regular basis.

Well, sometimes I need an hour and a half to get from here to University (it's scattered all across town. Some departments are not located at the main campus). But I only need this long if I miss every connection while changing lines, which luckily doesn't happen that often.
