In Topic: Niagara Falls dry

09 May 2014 - 11:54 PM

I've lived near Niagara Falls for most of my life, and been there for various reasons several times. I've seen them "stopped" due to winter ice buildup, but never like this.

A few years ago I had the chance to go behind the falls, using an open-to-the-public former maintenance tunnel, and that was hard to believe. The tunnels are closed now due to the high cost to keep them safe being impractical for what was really an interest point that didn't have much to show it off.

In Topic: Bug Tracker

Error messages are about all the Tracker will generate for now, but that's both expected and very slow to fix. The boss is still looking at options to best suit, and an Error Tracker of some kind is the most obvious step. Which one, where it is, how it ties... yeah, well...

Today, the paperwork was completed for BFS to acquire a title license Epic's award winning Unreal Engine 3. Yep, you read that right..... We are using Unreal Engine 3!

We will be doing a full press release in the coming weeks, but I thought the wait has been long enough around here so why not share it with everyone... though the Donators have known for a couple weeks now.  :thumbsup:

I am looking forward to sharing much more information as we transition into this new phase of the company!

In Topic: Keyboards

Backlighting, for those who avoid it, is a mixed bag, but a decent keyboard will have lighting options, including OFF, for those who use it happily unseen or in decent light. Most modern lit keyboards have a variable amount of lighting, some being a few setting to some being every step from off to suntan. It's also becoming a trend to have replaceable key caps for what strikes the mood, though I don't see that as an instant thing. A few keyboard companies sell total key replacement packages in some odd but durable materials, just in case you want showy.

I mentioned earlier about RGB mechanicals, and need to clarify. I believe it is Corsair, and I do know it's an exclusive (we'll see how long for) with Cherry MX, which is nifty if you're heart is set on colour and mechs first.

I still think the BlackWidow Ultimate Steath is a good choice, though hard to locate in person. Everything you are looking for, but the Cherry MX switches (I don't recall the colour) have a slightly lighter throw and are quiet.
