Where was Dark?!?!?

Welcome one and welcome all! Welcome to Darks Carnival!

Heh, ok guys I have been away for far to long, but not without good reason!ย  For starters I got a job! That means I can buy new consoles and equipment! Also I finally upgraded to my new custom built PC! Actually its time for a story, because I should have had this PC up and running for about 3 months. When I fist got all the parts from newegg I was going to make a PC building tutorial, however I didn’t have my camera and I was so excited that I built it in just under 2 hours, but at the time I had no operating system disc so it sat there doing nothing for 2 weeks until I got a Vista 64 Bit Ultimate CD and CD key. All went well, I downloaded steam and counter-strike: source started up and joined a server, BAM, Crash. Turns out the card was bad, then I RMA’ed it and got another one, It worked… for about 5 days then the same problem happened again. So now I’m waiting for it to return, in the mean time I bought a temporary card and I like it alot more. More information on this card fiasco later but for now I’m just glad to be back!

New posting format! 2 posts per day wtf?!


Guess what everyone Dark is back! [So he says] he is wanting to do a post every day as well as me. Thus providing with you guys even more modding lust! Perhaps we will even bring back the podcast [NO WAI!] This should get quite interesting because if you have not noticed Dark has been gone MIA from TheModShop since early May of this year. Well apparently he has gotten things together and will be posting now but we will have to see how long that lasts.

In any event look forward to a lot more modding and a lot less suck from the site in the coming weeks ๐Ÿ˜€


Akismet spam prevention having issues…

For a while now I have used Akismet to keep the spam on the site down however in recent months I have been getting the following message quite often.

Akismet has detected a problem. A server or network problem is preventing Akismet from working correctly. Click here for more information about how to fix the problem.

Now I can click the link to fix it and I am presented with the following info

Server Connectivity

For one reasion or another the akismet servers are crashing or the network between my server and the akismet servers is failing.

Anyone else have this issue?


Not Tech / Modding but still…


The man you see in the picture above is named Justin Heyne. On March 30th of 2006 he shot and killed Benjamin Hamilton, Sarah Buckoski and their 5-year-old daughter, Ivory Hamilton. Why? Because Mr. Hamilton made fun of him….On July 20th 2009 the jury selection began in his trial. While prosecutors are pushing for him to be served with the death penalty. The mother of Sarah is wanting him to be served with 3 life terms with out parole.

Now you may be asking yourself… “Why the hell is Tracker posting this?”

J.C. [Justin C Heyne] is the son of my step dads close friend. I have known them since I was about 6 years old. Matter of fact in a drawer in the other room there are baby pictures of J.C. This post just goes to show that you can never predict what someone will do.


Paintball anyone?

Who says we are a tech site only?

Today I got my paintball gun in the mail and all my other equipment. My first reaction was sweet! But then after thinking about it I realized that it needed some more tech. The gun itself has a e-trigger allowing full auto and 3 round burst fire but thats not good enough. Currently I am looking into helmet cams to attach to either the gun itself or the mask that will allow me to take some killer paintball videos.

With that being said I am gonna go shoot some more and think of ways to do this and get back to you guys with what I find ๐Ÿ˜‰


400th post!

3rd birthday and the day TMS passes the 400 mark. This post is the 400th post made on themodshop in the time wordpress has been on here.

Statistics wise I am owning Dark in posts…

ME: 366 posts

Dark: 34 posts

Hmm kind of unbalanced is it not?

In the these 400 posts the writing style of myself and dark has changed quite a bit. As we grow older we start using larger words and spell better ๐Ÿ˜›

Here is to 400 more posts!
