Love - Hope - Fortune

By Peter 'kravitz' Z
Sep 9, 2005 00:02

Today i woke up, took a shower and was listening to some Body & Soul ( Love serenade ) music and felt into thinking about Love, what isnt really good for me, because i have made some bad expiriences in the past. And it is also over a year ago since i am single and so i am asking myself how long does it take to find that one person that fill your heart with love and making you to the happiest man on earth. Well i found no answer on this question. I think i am not alone with that question. I see people that are allready married with 22-25 years and living their own life and so i am also asking my self will i ever found my Mrs. Right?
Many people telling me "every Jack will find his Jill" but it is maybe allready to late for me? Did i missed my chance?
Many people also say you should never lose the hope - the right person will come! Well is it only me who is losing the hope more and more to ever find the right person?
Well in this phase i start thinking about myself, maybe i dont fit in in the current time?
Maybe i dont look like a guy should look nowadays? But when that would be the reason wouldnt this world be to facile?
Am i to romantic ? i mean there is so few romantic on this world. I once said to a good friend while we were talking about romantic and such things, that for me there is nothing better then coming home from work and be able to feel my girldfriend in my arms drinking a cup of tee while the candles making the room really lovely and romantic and she just answered " when i came back home from work i just want to have the time for me ". It shocked me a little bit because this was the first time i recognised how few romantic left. Especially since i really love romantic and think there is nothing better cause these situations taking your breath away - and like we all know this situations making your life livable. I mean such special happenings like lieing near to a tree with your love and looking in the sky watching for flying stars having a picnic or sitting on your coach with your big love candles prettify the room you are listening to some fine snuggle music while the waterdrops rippling on your window. Arent those happenings the most valueable situations you will get in your life? ( Of course there are other too, when you get a baby for example :) ). And you need nothing for this you dont need to be rich or poor you just need to find your love. But you need to hope you cant lose your hope.
Well i sometimes think i allready lose it, but since i know love is what is keeping you alive i also know i havent lost my hope. Why cant everyone have the fortune to find the right love soon? There are so few people which get this unbelieveable privilege.
What does we need to do to find our Love? Where we need to go? What are possible places to find this person? I think that are questions no one knows any answer for.
Since i know some pairs which find themself i would like to hear some stories about how, where and when you found yourselves. ( I also know some what meet each other here the first time - SK Gaming Love Portal =] )
Thanks for sharing your happenings here :)

Gather leavers and argueing ppl

By Peter 'kravitz' Z
Sep 7, 2005 02:21

Well hi guys..
I am a little bit angry because nearly every gather, which get started finish in someone is leaving it and destroy that gather for all the other too. No one want to play against 4 people as well as no one wanna fight with 4 people against 5 ;)
And i really have no appreciation for that, because one gather takes around one hour to play and everyone should know what he/she is gonna do in the next hours...
And i of course dont mean ppls which have to leave a gather due to some personal reasons like parents / or accidents or any other important things.
But in many cases people just leave cause they have no fancy to keep playing or get disconnect by their ISP or any other reasons. Well in my opinion it is easy to prepare for this just by watching when your router get disconnect by your ISP or taking 1 minute to think of what i have to do in the next hour and such things.
Another Point is that some gathers get aborted because someone get kicked by ssclient cause of he got disconnected by his ISP and then try to join the server and get kicked and dont try it any more. I allready made a thread for this Problem and also a blog to catch the attention of more people but it seems only a small amount of you guys taking care of it so maybe the one or other now want to read it. Do it then :).
Well the third Point is "argueing people". I know that some people dont like each other, you will find this problem all over the world, but these people are still alive and can handle it so YOU can do it too! :)
Its simple when you start arguing you will destroy the gather for all, so why not better keep playing and owning each other and try to fight out this in that way? Or well when you really cant talk to each other without starting a conflict then try to ignore that person. In the CS community are so much people that destroy the whole scene with their behaviour so better try to represent a example for this people and show them how it works! :]
And because i saw this last point in the last gather i played today i wanna add some sentences. The misbehave of someone dont give you the right or is a reason to TK or TA him. Get proofs like demo and report it to Admins. Doing it in this way impeded a derailing of this whole problem ;)
And by the way flame is a kind of argueing too :]
flame lead to demotivation
demotivation lead to a bad game of you
a bad game lead to get frustrated
frustration lead to get pissed off :D
and to be honest who want to be pissed off? =)
And now love each other and happy fragging =D

SKInsider Server Troubleshooting

By Peter 'kravitz' Z
Sep 2, 2005 15:14

Hello guys..
I decided to make a blog about "troubleshooting on connecting to Insider servers" cause there are still peoples with problems and always opening new forum threads :). So this blog is only interresting for]SK Insider[/url].
So here we go..
1. Basic things:
a. When you join the server and you get a message saying "Nick is playing but is not an Insider" it is because your settings in your profile. After this you will get banned for 10 minutes.
b. If you join server and get kicked, but not banned, it is because your ssClient is not properly connected or running.
2. Troubleshooting:
What can i do to avoid being banned, because i am an Insider?
1st Step: Make sure you fill in your correct SteamID ( without "STEAM_" )
into your preferences. To get your SteamID just connect to a random server ( Game Hosting public server for example ) and type "status" ( like on image above ) in your console and you will get your SteamID. Double check your SteamID when you are filling it in your preferences, because sometimes when you copy your SteamID out of your console ( with CTRL + C ) the last digit wont be copied.
2nd Step: Make sure you connect with the right Nick to the server. That means you have to connect with the same nick to the server as you have on When you are in a clan you have to put the clan's tag infront of your nick.
Clan = SK
Nick = iantje
You connect as: SK|iantje
3rd Step: When your Login password for is the same as your SK-Insider channel-password, change it. DO NOT use the same password for IRC and the site, and remember to have 4 or more characters in your password.
What can i do to not get kicked by ssClient?
1st Step: Close ssClient
2nd Step: Go on SK Page logout there and login again.
3rd Step: Make sure you downloaded this ssClient. Start ssClient and push the blue button. A new window will appear, which include many servers. You now have to be careful, because there are 2 SK entries in this list. One called "SK Gaming" in the middle of this list ( marked blue ) and one at the end ( marked red ) called "SK Insider". You have now to doubleclick the "SK Insider" ( marked red ) entry. You see the entries on the next image.
On the next image you see how ssClient look like when you have done everything right and ssClient is connected to SK Anticheat server.
3. Additional Tip:
In many cases ( expecially after 24 hours disconnect ) it really just needs a relogin on the Page to get it working. So try to logout and login again. If it fails dont give up and follow the steps above, msg any SK Insider Admin or just open up a forum thread.
In some cases it also was enough when you opened your [url= and just performed a click on "Save Settings". Hope it will help you!
