More Storage for Earthquake

I’ve been running out of room on Earthquake, so I decided to plop in a 60gb ATA hard drive to act as storage. The SCSI drives will now be for production stuff, and the ATA drive will hold my games, MP3s and video clips. Here’s some details of how it went:

 

Here’s what the case guts looked like before the project.

 

A close up of the two U-160 10k rpm SCSI drives nestled up next to the exhaust fan.

 

 

The drive bracket removed.

 

 

The drive bracket with the extenders. These were wood joist straps purchased at Home Depot and cut to size.

 

 

The three drives mounted in the bracket. Getting to be quite a tall stack…

 

The three drives nestled in the case and cabled up.

 

 

Earthquake now. Not much difference, but 58gb (formatted) more storage space. Bring on the pr0n!

 

 

 

 

 

New Map List

I’ve been fragging on the ztn2dm for far too long, so I decided to change things up on Plague with a new map list. Pick it up here. The list of maps is:

This collection includes some maps for eye-candy, others for perceived playability and others because they just seemed cool.

September 5, 2003 – Thursday Night Frag results

So I was doing just fine last night, in a grove and holding my own when an earthquake hits, screwing with my game. I had to leave after only a few maps due to circumstances beyond my control. Peeps played without me, though, fragging for about two and a half hours. With no Ent, BeerBuzz showed up to take the win:
