HoC Astrolog Star Date 0123116

to explore strange new worlds and perhaps glitch all over them

Okay, the glitch comment is funny but I don't want you to think this game is only glitches. It is just fair warning that this is a Game Preview game. I am still enjoying it but I have found issues. My biggest is with vehicles and joining them together in a train. Often (very often) one of the cars glitches and start jumping in place. It seems like one of the tires gets stuck in the ground and won't let go. Next to impossible to use after that and quickly gets abandoned. Along with whatever valuables it may be carrying. Future archeologists will surely puzzle over the prolific abandonment of Astroneer vehicles all over (mostly under) the planets I have settled.

This is my latest base. See how happy my character is.This is my latest base. See how happy my character is.

But I am still playing this game and still enjoying it. This Star Log is about a funny moment I experienced with RollyC. Did I happen to mention that this game supports coop? Four player coop in fact.

Herd of Cats’ Frozen parody

By Blackwalt - Posted on 24 December 2016

I am almost afraid to post anything nowadays as I am afraid it will disappear in the site change over. But this needed to be shared.

Coming out of this comment series and the whole site change situation.

The sad part is with Q-Bert as Elsa and Stormblade as Anna that leaves me and Moricerevek fighting over Olaf the snowman or Sven the reindeer.

Astroneer now available on Xbox One Game Preview

By Blackwalt - Posted on 21 December 2016

As mentioned previously on Herd of Cats

$19.99 but with a Try for Free option.

Oh yeah. Four player drop in/drop out coop.

Sorry for not posting a lot but I have no idea when the change over is happening. Direct all comments and complaints elsewhere. I am fully confident.

Is this Stormblade?

Cover your ears: the admins are arguing

By Blackwalt - Posted on 06 December 2016

There is an additional delay in the site change over

Stormblade is in an discussion with Q-Bert about saving all the stories in a migration versus a complete rebuild.

More work involved but as long as I am not that one doing it I am all for it.

Of course, the little I have already done may end up being sacrificed and that just makes me sad...

Fox on the run ... Sweet!

Did anyone else get that? Sweet? ... ugh, I'm so old.

Blame Q-Bert even though it is not his fault

By Blackwalt - Posted on 01 December 2016

I would blame Q-Bert if it totally wasn't my fault

The change over to the new site is going slowly. This slowness is caused entirely by my laziness. Not Q-Bert as you would obviously suspect.

Unfortunately my laziness factor is not decreasing...

Hopefully something will happen eventually

I never knew I needed this.... Until I saw it.

Think of this the next time you're on the Queensway

Los Angeles traffic jam.

Road rage, anyone?

Herd of Chris PSA: Q-Bert pressed the button

By Blackwalt - Posted on 18 November 2016

So the site was down for a couple of hours and there may be some aftermath

And it is totally Q-Bert's fault:

    I had to upgrade KC's operating system to Ubuntu 16.04 because of security upgrades. That forced PHP7 and removed PHP5.4 automatically. HoC is Drupal 6. Drupal 6 doesn't run with PHP7. So, HoC got pooched and Moricerevek reported it inside of 10 mins, which shows you how much he relies on HoC for his personal view of the world.

So what you see now is a temporary fix but we have a new site under construction and Q-Bert will switch it over if I ever get around to building it.

Just wanted you to know why I am updating even less than normal.

PS- 15 years for Halo. Watch Dogs 2 is out. Random Stormblade abuse. Black Friday! Cats are funny.

I am pretty sure this is Graybush...

Not sure if he is looking for the super moon, hunting zombies, or just another Tuesday.

Herd of Cats: now a club on Xbox Live

By Blackwalt - Posted on 14 November 2016

Apparently the Xbox Holiday Update added clubs to Xbox Live

I discovered this when I found Stormblade spamming my mailbox with "where is the HoC Club? Where? Where? Where?"

I showed him though. No HoC club for him! "Herd of Cats" however? There may be one of those.
