No concerns here pal. Thanks for being a pro nerd.

Happy new year everyone. We'll be taking bets on which will happen first, another Half-Life site kicking the bucket or Black Mesa coming out.

Won't be this one, that's for sure.

Happy Lunar New Year! Now... does Valve know they're just jerking us around by referencing a franchise they have no intentions of continuing?

Fairly pro texture artist.

But Valve didn't make MegaMan. :coolbiden:

My '99 Civic EX. Motor's out of a '95 Integra GS-R and has 80k miles on it, but I've rebuilt it with new rings, valves, pistons, etc, so it might as well not matter at this point. Just waiting on a few (well, a lot, really) more bits to arrive and I'll be ready to drop it in by the middle of June. I've probably fondled every single nut and bolt in that motor at least four times by now given how many times I've combed through it.

Between what I paid for the car and what I've put into it so far plus what I've put into just this engine I could've bought a nicer car if time weren't an issue in my initial purchase...but it sure as hell wouldn't have been as fun or as 'mine' given every bolt in the engine bay will be my bitch come June when I rip this baby out:

Altho, to keep the trend of nerdiness going, picture of me/my friend's other project:


We were too lazy to fully remove the cylinder head and all the associated crap to replace the head gasket, so we used the side of an old computer case to prop it up. :sagan:

Now this is a blast from the past. Barely had any experience with a wrench back then, still don't, but I've got a couple dozen engine pulls and some weird "we have two to three shit engines let's make one work for cheap" Frankenstein builds for people, amongst other things, under my belt now

That motor's had 30,000 miles put on it and is back out of the car sitting in my garage waiting to be shipped off to get some major machine work done for the sake of upgrades. It's like things went full circle. Don't even have that car any more, it's sitting in a friend's field.

For the sake of content, this is the head from one of my roommates' car:




Just shy of 300k miles on the odo and the valves decided they couldn't be away from the pistons any longer. Sat in the driveway for six months before I efforted an engine into it.

I'm :2pro: for discord..

So yeah, I'm back.. did you miss me?! I'm glad to see this place is still going, hope all my other buddies are still around, Alex, DiamonD, Besli, James, joebama and of course Canada's sexiest nerdman, Mr Editor himself! :coolbiden: Plus anyone else I missed, you guys changed your names or something, I don't recognise everyone! Anyway, I didn't really go anywhere, just stopped being a Half-Life nerd and was a nerd elsewhere :joebiden: Had to take a break from game design after I came to a point where I hated working on No Man's Land (and that's very dead btw, I just haven't archived it), it was a chore and I wasn't having fun anymore, so I walked away.

HL turned 20 years old recently of course, and so I played through it again, as well as OP4, BS and Decay, Hell I even dusted off Gunman Chronicles too! Playing through HL inspired me all over again, so much so that I started my own pure HL mod, no more total conversion madness, just plain old HL with my own content when I need it! Hopefully I'll have something special to show you tomorrow...

So yeah.. that's it I guess.. carry on :smile:

Megan huh? Well no wonder I didn't recognise you...

I messaged Editor about verifying me for discord, so after that maybe I'll be hanging out with you nerds again, prepare for unseen concequences...  :joebiden: :joebiden:
