Sometimes an ISPs DNS settings can have an effect on the quality of your game but if your Ping is 80 and yer still skipping around might have something to do with our servers. Hard to say since the issue is not as widespread which leads me to think it could be the ISP.

I'll look into it, thanks for the help.

 

I've fought countless times, yet I've never met an adversary who could offer me what we Spartans call "A Beautiful Death." I can only hope, with all the world's warriors gathered against us, there might be one who's up to the task.

First of Zennosha, I always liked you but have even more respect for you now. I cannot imagine the struggles you are dealing with but hang in there bro. 

 

Secondly, the best job I ever had is being a dad. Frustratingly rewarding and wouldn't trade it for anything. 

 

North Carolina resident as well here. Corporate level parts guy for a leading heavy truck OEM. Basically I come up with the impossible parts that the dealers cannot find and source. 

Thank you both! My mom is the real fighter though, it's amazing how strong she is and how she just keeps on fighting :)

Great thread.  Been in the architecture gig for 20 years, then worked with Autodesk for a few years supporting a new platform called Revit, and now teach it at the local polytechnic.  Bailed on the support thing - "Solve your own damn problems, people" - and now do design-build with a great general contractor.  Grew up in northern BC, then Saskatchewan after my atheist parents started reading about some random Jewish carpenter, then ended up in the Vancouver area as an adult.  Married with four (!) kids, two of whom kick butt in this game (Gray and xxSpritexx).  Strong believer in a non-accidental universe and teleology.  Still have a ton of questions.  Really wish I didn't need sleep.

Positive vibes to your mother! Maybe you can platoon with her. Games can be therapeutic...especially ones that let you blow stuff up.

Truck driving just seems like such a cool job to me. It's a job you can get perhaps once you're retired, or if you're just bored. You get to travel across the country, see sights you'd never see, and you get paid for it.

Some planes just look sexy and deadly at the same time, and the Phantom is definitely one of them.

Family man first.

To pay the bills and buy tanks, I am a HVAC wholesaler. Basically when the guy who is working on your furnace, air conditioner or beer cooler says he has to go get a part, he comes to me. Not glamorous, but people hate being hot or cold so unless I royally mess up, I should always have a job.

I work in a camera shop. Getting laid off at the end of January since the company is closing the shop due to the camera market collapsing. Haven't done anything else for the past 14 years lol. Had a few semi and unsucessful side businesses as a photographer but not interested in shooting as a living not steady enough in Ottawa Canada where I live.

Currently have a fun hobby making spinning toy tops that brings in some money (how I pay for wot blitz premiums) so going to do that for a while as I look for work come February.
