The Journey To The Next TUG Event

After reading the lack of comments yesterday on the TiT post, I decided to ponder about my journey in search of the next TUG event.  Wait, what is a TUG event?  I know some of you guys have some sick minds out there, as I’m sure TUG could refer to a lot of things like a boat, tug of war, pulling on something, and etc.  🙂

My usage of TUG here is an acronym for The Under Ground, hence the next The Underground Event for writing here on the blog.

Yesterday I thought more about the “Life of a Pirate” series, and decided that it was too forward.  There is a lot of good knowledge out there from honest people who are not pirates, and I did not want to proceed with the image that pirates are evil/good and that I should totally expose the pirate scene apart.

Plus, this blog is not meant as a forum for piracy either and I don’t want to be seen as that too.  In efforts to maintain the clean blog image, I have decided to move onto something that I can live with.

Welcome to what could very well be the “STD Stories”, where STD is Versatile1 acronymn for “Savvy Tech Dude” (or Dudette depending on article content).  I love puns, what can I say.

Breakdown of STD Stories:

  • STD stories will try to be posted once a week, but not guaranteed.  Expect it to appear out of nowhere, just like real life STDs.  🙂
  • STD stories are real stories about technology and how it is twisted to fit into someone’s life for logical or illogical purposes.
  • STD stories may dwell on underground material, but is not meant to be strictly related to it.
  • STD stories are meant to be written by The Underground Staff, but the community is highly encouraged to contribute via posts or offline interviews with Versatile1.
  • STD stories can either be fictional or truth, and the validity of the story is left up to the writer and for the audience to decide for themselves.
  • STD stories are laid-back, and could be a story, but doesn’t have to be.  A tutorial could be thought of as a “story” too in some regards.

I’m sure the list could go on and on.  Does it sound exciting?  It does to me.  We’ll see.  As time goes on, you will see what the flavor of articles is going to be.  Good times!

[TiT] That’s It Tuesday Issue 9

Tit bird

Hi underground visitors! Welcome to the ninth issue of TIT, or That’s It Tuesday! Every Tuesday, I, Versatile1, will give you a rant of whats going on in the blog, whats intended for the future, hope, dreams, etc.

How’s it going?  As you now know, winter is upon us, so if you drive, I hope that GN’s recent article on preparing for winter is going to help you out a bunch.  Always make sure to include a winter car aid kit, which includes a snow scraper, a shovel, a brush, and perhaps an ice deicer.

Now what do we have in store for the future around here?  Frankly, I am not sure.  I recently cleaned up the Author’s list, so the community knows who can be counted on to post regularly.  Do note that although I do a lot of the work around here, much of my success is the other authors here, so don’t forget them.

Ads and revenue:  I tried this twice already with Google Adsense.  Both times my account got disabled, and making revenue from clicking ads won’t work for a site like this.  I have came to the conclusion that is all right.  I know that Musicmasteria has setup a Donate page, but I’m a realist.  I know all you guys won’t contribute jack.

I have a funny Youtube video that is coming up.  You guys will enjoy it.  Last week I posted a picture of a bathroom in the Netherlands.  While you take a piss, you have these Netherland women pointing down and mocking you? WTF?  Now thats some crazy European humor.

Portal is hot, and will always be.  I understand we have some interest in UT3 and Crysis private servers.  Well, I am not even sure if those kind of things exist.  If you know of some, by all means share it with us.

Last, but not least, I got the next crazy post to trump the IRC XXX porn passwords.  What if there was a program that housed tons and tons of serial keys, say over 100k to be in fact?  Instead of going to serial key websites, you just open up this program, type in the program for the key you want, and bingo, its there!

I can’t assure you all the keys work, but a damn good amount do.  Fake or fiction?  We’ll see.  I will have an entice page, and of course it will be released on the forums.  Until then, see you guys later.

I have decided all TiT updates from now on will have a “hot” picture to entice the male audience.  Ladies, if you want something, please let me know.  Otherwise, I am under the prognosis my audience is 99% male. 🙂
