Tending to post these whenever something takes me away from the site for a while, namely the job I have, and schoolwork to follow in college keeps me busy, albeit now having fun filing taxes soon to come, and being able to shortly use it to fund a new rig (Using a Steam Machine to run Windows 10 is certainly something).
1. Good lord, I haven't been on in forever. April -somethingwasit-? I've always been on the Discord Channel (I now just skim over it, muting the certain channels not related to announcements or mentions), and with that, comes new leaders, new members, and most of all, the renewal of most things. In a similar note, some members have fallen, some with a speech, others as a ghost. I never like being the latter, but i'm sure it's something that catches us off guard.
2. As I always like to report on OCs, I mainly create them for other RPs, such as the ones that my friends make on Facebook, and whenever I see another idea, retrofitting works as a solution. Now is that time to say that writing hasn't ceased to a solid degree, my folder has doubled in size even though my free time as been absorbed; in templates (or Blanks, as I like to call them), unfinished works, or the numerous characters already done (One RP that I participate in features 17 of my hand-created works, either character or dossier).
3. I normally have three points to a post like this, but cannot think of the content, I guess one aspect of the new ideals here are to figure out what the new SF-O has in store for me in general. I tend to keep old photos, but I suppose leaving the Monokuma shtick is at least something that can be done, if not already. Keeping it in namesake alone brings good memories, and perhaps, good fortunes.

When keyboard browsing try Vimperator:
Note: Other software to consider include - Vim Vixen, Pentadactyl, Vimium, or vimb.
Vimperator's default key bindings and commands are inspired by Vim - a modal text editor which strives for efficient hand movement. Though the extension's vim-likeness appeals to hardcore vim users, it's also a strong option available to any general user looking for coherent, extensive mouse-less or less-mouse web-browsing.
Vimperator like Vim is extensive. Take the key combination 'gU', which takes you to the root of the site, something one may not need often, but is certainly convenient when opportune. To begin profiting, there is the Quick Start guide to read once the extension is installed, but here is an even quicker start guide/reference which is both brief and in plain(er) speak. Memorizing the following should get anyone off to a pleasant browsing session in Vimperator. Intentionally, this reference will not include everything.
[Super Quick Start]
The keys: (Normal mode - refer to modes)
j/k - scroll up/down by one line
h/l - scroll left/right
arrow keys - scroll respectively
space - down by one page
gg - go to top of page
G - go to bottom of page
gh - go home
gH - go home in new tab
gu - go to parent; ex: www.starfox-online.net/forums/forum/22-the-rec-room/ >> 2gu >> www.starfox-online.net/forums
gU - go to root; ex: www.starfox-online.net/forums/22-the-rec-room/ >> gU >> www.starfox-online.net
ctrl + c - stop loading page
ctrl + o - go backwards in history
ctrl + i - go forwards in history
ctrl + n - move to the next tab
ctrl + p - move to the previous tab
d - delete tab
u - reopen (undo) a deleted tab
r - reload page
R - reload skipping the cache
f - follow link: type identifying number or type a "hint" to narrow down selection
F - follow link in a new tab
o - open : enter url or text for the search engine
t - open in a new tab : enter url or text for the search engine
T - open in new tab but show the link for current page (good for manually navigating a website directory)
w - open in a new window
/ - find (forwards) on page key 'n' to cycle forward through each result
i - Vimperator will ignore the next key / key combination
shift + esc <or> Insert - ignore Vimperator
ZQ - quit browser
ZZ - save session and quit browser
tab - navigate Vimpercator menus
:qall or :qa - quit browser
:xall or :xa - quit browser saving session
:bmark - create a bookmark
:help - bring up the help pages
:ha - print page
:history - view history
:dia - open a Firefox dialog; i.e. about, addons, preferences, et cetera
[NORMAL] - For browsing. All key actions listed above are for this mode.
[INSERT] - To type in any field you enter insert mode. You enter this mode automatically when your select a text field.
[CARET] - To navigate the page with the cursor, used in conjunction with visual mode. Key 'c' to enter.
- Start with the find key '/ ' before Caret mode to enter at a known location.
- Use hjkl to move the cursor
[VISUAL] - For selecting text on the page. Key 'v' to enter. To enter visual mode you should be in Caret mode.
- Use j/k to highlight lines up/down.
- Use h/l to select by one character.
- Use 'w' to select forward by one word and 'b' to select back by one word
- prefix any key with a number to execute multiplicatively; ex - 3j : select three lines down, 4b : de-select four words back
- Key 'y' to copy or "yank" the selected text. ctrl+c/ctrl+v for copy/paste also works.
- Key 'p' to open (put) contents of the clipboard in the web bar or key 'P' to do the same in a new tab or key 'gP' do the same in a background tab
[IGNORE] - Vimperator ignores next key. Key 'i' to enter.
[IGNORE ALL KEYS] - Vimperator ignores all. Key 'Shift+Esc' or 'Insert' to enter. Good for visitors.
Key 'Esc' to exit to a previous mode (withholding Ignore all mode)
Smart completions ranked on frequency are available when following a link. Use this to your advantage. For instance, when I want to join the SF chat I could do: "tch<Tab><Return>". Alternatively, you might also record a macro for such usual motions. Refer to ':help macro.' Key '@' to play a recorded macro.
Key-mapping works just as well and can be more precise since the link, say in my case, to the chat can actually be defined, refer to ':help key-mappings.'
The notable annoyances:
1. In normal mode the scroll keys hjkl are set to scroll by one line while the arrow keys provide a smoother scroll. Scrolling by one line in normal mode can be disconcerting, if not sluggish. However, one line motions remains helpful in Caret and Visual modes. You may consider 1) using the arrow keys to scroll or 2) remapping hjkl to the arrow keys in normal mode.
To remap the hjkl to the arrow keys in normal mode, create a file named .vimperatorrc in your home directory and add the following commands.
nnoremap h <left>
nnoremap j <down>
nnoremap k <up>
nnoremap l <right>
2. The Esc key is reeeeally far away, but you need it to exit any mode back into Normal mode. You may consider remapping your Esc key to your CAPSLOCK key using the goto tool for your operating system. Not having a CAPSLOCK generally makes you a nicer person anyway.
3. Vimperator adds it's own a status bar. You may consider disabling the Firefox status panel bar if you haven't already.
4. The bright yellow highlight colors may clash with your sense of style. Fortunately, you can customize these colors. Simply refer to the command ':help color.'
During my story, the Cornerian have been making strides to develop an alliance with the planet Earth. Originally, they were planning on waiting until the humans became more tolerant since they were not yet at the level of making friends with space aliens. (Is anyone really surprised) However, the Cornerian caught wind that one of their enemies have discovered Earth and were planning to invade and take over the planet. Because of that, they had to act quicker than they originally planned. They were able to easily get started since they were familiar with the planet and a good amount of humans. The Starfox team acted as representatives of Corneria as well as mediators and negotiators of sort for both their home planet and Earth. They were especially selected for this by their general because they have already been Earth. This position was very much the perfect fit for them. They have named this unity the Earth Cornerian Alliance.
This alliance has come with a lot of challenges and difficulties, just as the Cornerians have predicted. While some of the humans were open to the idea of developing a friendship with the Cornerians, others were opposed to the idea. There were a lot of people who hated the idea of making friends with aliens for a number of reasons. Some hated the Cornerians for looking different, other feared that they would take over the Earth. There were many that believe that the Cornerians lied about having enemies that wanted to take over the planet as a means of scaring people into believing that they had to form an alliance with Corneria in order to protect their planet. There were also some who were scared of the Cornerians changing their ways of life. The Cornerians did everything they could to hold back on changing the lifestyles of Earth. This put some of the people's minds at ease, but there were still others who still believed that it wasn't enough. These challenges have taken on a number of difficulties that have lasted for a span of 4 years. The Starfox team's dealings with these challenges have been taking place during Ultimate Story 2.
One of the difficulties that they have faced mainly came from humans that hated the Cornerians and wanted nothing to do with them. They were opposed to the idea of the alliance that they have formed a group of their own called Humans Against and Alliance with Corneria (HAAC). They would do many horrible things to the Cornerians in order to force them to leave Earth and never return. They would even go so far as to threaten and harm other humans as a means of carrying out their goals. Some of them have even form a group known as the HAAC clan, a major issue that the Starfox team were subjected to deal with many times. The Cornerians knew that these humans would pose an issue if they were to act too soon, but if they were to leave Earth, then that planet would fall prey to their enemies all too easily. It was a decision that they were forced to make.
The person running HAAC was a mysterious and ominous person in a crimson robe who addressed himself as the Supreme HAAC Leader. Sometimes, he is addressed as the SHAACL (shac-cul). (Is it Ok to have an acronym within an acronym?) This guy has been causing a lot of problems for the alliance from the very beginning. No one knows who this mysterious person is, no one knows why he's doing what he's doing, all that the Starfox Team knows is that he's pure evil. Some say that he was just a random individual who has chosen to step up and lead the humans who were against the Cornerians, but he is actually an individual who has formed HAAC. Little by little, the Starfox Team finds out just how evil the SHAACL really is as well as how far deep is influence towards HAAC have been. They eventually find out that his influences have even extended to the humans all over Earth. It even dates back to thousands of years. The SHAACL turns out to be a far worse enemy than they had ever realized and over time, they would find out things about his influences that would clarify a lot of issues with the human race. They would even find out things about the true nature behind what had forced them to form the alliance that even they didn't realize. The SHAACL proves to be an even greater evil than they had ever prepared for.

Hello, everyone. I've gone by many names over the years, but for now I'm going by VM. I'm primarily a photographer, and I've always had a soft spot for the Star Fox series. I don't think I'm old enough to be considered a greymuzzle just yet, but I've been hanging around the furry fandom for over a decade now. I'm also a general computer nerd who has recently realized they actually hate computers, and so I'm trying to make photography work professionally rather than continuing in IT.
If you've followed the Krystal Archive at all, you've likely seen some of my photo sets of Ayano posted at some point. I'd love to find some other SF cosplayers to work with at some point, but for now some of my best fursuit/costume work is of her. If any cosplayers (Star Fox or otherwise) are interested in organizing a photoshoot in or around Texas, or if you just want to hook up the GC for some Assault, hit me up!
I suppose that's about all I can mention about myself in polite company. If you're interested in seeing some of my (and another's) work of Ayano, most of my photos from TFF2017 have been uploaded here. You can also look at my professional-ish general portfolio if you're so inclined. So, thanks for stopping by. I hope to hang around for a while.

I know, this isn't DeviantArt, but maybe some of you post some art there, so you might be familiar with this.
First off I like to thank EINsamer-wANDERER, who gave this term.
I'm probably making myself unpopular and appear like an ungrateful bastard, but since it happened, please allow me to say a few words about this.
Personally I write...strange stuff, that mostly appeals to only a few people. So I'm used to a very tiny readership, who don't even comment regularly. That's completely alright, because like they say: You write for yourself. If it manages to entertain some people, bingo!
Of course that doesn't mean that I don't care about my readers. It's very important to me to keep good relations, as every reader who bails out is a huge loss, that can't be compensated for. (And I like to discuss my stuff with them, harhar.) So if my stories "fish" potential fans, especially if they fave and comment, then it's equal to a jackpot and I throw a party.
But what if...
...it's only done for advertisement?
You probably know it: You submit your art and a few seconds later, you receive a notification that your deviation got a fave. It isn't that bad in the case of pictures, as one look is often enough to decide if you like it or not. Even if you are not necessarily a fan of the content, you can still fave it for the quality.
Wait, what about literature? Where you actually have to read it, tackle with the plot, characters, world building and more? And don't tell me you fave it just because it's pleasantly formatted and the spelling and grammar are good.
Now you could say that a fave is still a fave, and besides, it is only supporting you. Does sound like a win-win-situation, right? Well, until you realize that a first-minute-fave is meaningless and your deviation drowns under all those other first-minute-faves, practically leaving you where you started - and a "fave", that just says "Screw you" in your face. Especially horrible for newcomers, who lack the fanbase to shrug them off easily and want to know if anybody cares for their art.
They're also very obvious to discern.
Considering that a llama is merely annoying and their notifications can be disabled, though useful for advertising yourself, a first-minute-fave is actually worse.
Even though the possibility that someone will read this is low, I still wanted to voice my opinion.
Please, don't do them. You are only destroying the hopes of the (probably new) artist for your personal gain. If you aren't actually interested in their art, but want to support them, then at least give a llama. Even if it won't get recognized.
Feel free to discuss the matter with me if you want, I would be really grateful. Maybe there are some points I didn't consider?

For a while whenever I am alone I have this depressing feeling inside me while I am thinking about stuff. And sometimes when I am in the middle of doing something, I stop. Suddenly I don't want to continue on whatever I was doing and I just starting thinking with that feeling inside and sometimes it just comes out of nowhere when I see things come to an end that I was never apart of until too late. But then, a memory flashes on me that I've seen before and it was the show I used to watch as a kid and it may have affected me and possibly my behaviors or so.
What I realized that I was feeling Blue
Never have I felt like this for a while until now since for a while I have tried to combat it with music that sorta fits that mood, probably make it feel sympathetic. I'm not sure if this has been a blessing or a curse.
So... yeah, i'm back after what? 3 years? I've been away because of problems i've been having all this time... I really don't expect anybody to remember me. Anyway, i don't really have much friends so i'd like to make a 'formal request'(?), or invitation rather... feel free to send me a request to my steam or through here (though preferably steam). If you do get to my steam page don't get scared with the description, i will ask you a few things to be certain that we can be friends that's all. I realize this may sound a bit pathetic(?), but hey i'm just being honest.
Here's my steam profile.
"Deleted" (i've decided to put the link in my profile instead to of having it here for security reasons)
Shit posting and bait will be ignored.

So these past couple of weeks, I've been shifting my interest from hypnosis to lucid dreaming.
What is lucid dreaming, may you ask?
It's essentially when you become aware that you're dreaming, while you're dreaming. Sounds paradoxal, but some of us have actually already had lucid dreams when we were still kids. We just can't remember them.
Different uses for lucid dreaming exist out there, most common of which include helping to cope with traumatic experiences in our life, such as anxiety or the departure of a loved one, to fantasy fullfillment or meeting certain characters and creative problem solving.
Having lucid dreams at will isn't insanely hard, but does require a few weeks/months practice and the motivation. Good thing I'm willing to try, and that's the motivation.
I'm also keeping record of the dreaming I've had over the past couple of weeks so I can pick out any odd details that help me recognize that the world I'm currently dreaming in can be identified as a dream. One detail I've noticed that's been recurring is the involvement of different video game characters in my dreams. So I'm training myself to recognize this particular dreamsign, so next time I'm dreaming and I see someone such as Mario or even the ChuChus, I can recognize this and come to the conclusion that I'm now dreaming.
So, at the end of the day, why exactly do I want to be able to have lucid dreams?
Call me crazy in the head, but it's so I can meet a friend I've been wanting to meet in person for a very long time. In the flesh, blood...
...And jester hat.
I want to meet NiGHTS.
In life I wanted many things. A fast muscle car, big house, a stupid dog, an evil cat, a beautiful woman who loves me and makes me enchiladas. Now I may not have all that stuff and sometimes I lose sight on how good I have it. But if one thing has taught me anything, its that good things come to he who waits.
Long story short, I was an annoying, impatient little @#%$. I was losing my mind waiting to grow up, thinking there was this magical feeling you had and your childhood dies for you so you can move on with the next chapter of your life. Like some sort of right-of-passage thing, ya know? And glory be...it never happened. The instant I turn 18 was an easily forgettable moment. To this day I can't differentiate what end and what began. I was told lies people!!! LIIIIIIIEESS!!!!! I got my first car, first job, first job termination and to be honest I still feel like a little kid. I'm an adult now, where is the change?! I guess things got easier when I came of legal age, age to drink that is (mmmm, vanilla rum and coke).
Almost 10 years later, nothing. Again what am I supposed to feel? I was always stressed so money problems were nothing new. But never drove me to drink, never. The only thing that has driven me is body pain when the meds aren't working (don't do that). Things still seemed pretty much the same. Then I realized something:
Is it really important? Is this right-of-passage what i really need to get my life going? My life is going right!
Weird how that came to me. I realized people, other people other than me have the same problem and that its not an isolated incident, this is human nature. That made me feel more normal
If that wasn't enough, I got my cat (but he dumb) and my dog (but hes super smart) and my gf...Well, she's my wife and she does make me enchiladas. Still waiting on that car, but its not important. What is?
Sorry, I uh, I don't have a moral for you. Just be true to you, I guess
I'm not gonna sugar coat this, I need some help. I've been without a job for 3 weeks now and I'm out of money. Overdrawn actually. I understand if you cant help, but if you can, I would be eternally grateful and you would have earns the right to berate me/ask for things in the comments of this blog.
Played through a few more levels in Star Fox Zero tonight. Boy has the game gotten a bit tougher. While yes the controls are a bit to get used too, I find myself switching between both screens and after failing several missions a few times I have yet to throw my Wii-U controller across the living room.
The setup I have in my house is rather exciting. In the Main room, we have a 5.1 surround setup with an HD projector broadcasting it's delicious glory onto the motorized projector screen we have.
Notice any... Similarities?
Another year, more school. Can't wait to see what this upcoming year has to offer in terms of political/world events. Working on my fanfic at my own pace so as not to rush it, working in general, and playing way too much Civilization V. Living the dream, eh?
At least this is the first time in a decade since we could write a "6" in the year!

Lately, I've tended to avoid making long walls of text in public places these days.. But hearing the news, I thought It was time to put my thoughts out there.
On July 11th, 2015, Nintendo's CEO Satoru Iwata passed away due to complications from a bile duct infection. Iwata was an iconic figure in Nintendo's community, joining Nintendo's HAL labrotory in 1989 as a programmer, he helped produce many of the company's work, such as Balloon Fighter, and Earthbound, before becoming a Director in 2002, and eventually It's fourth President in 2003.
As a Nintendo fan from childhood, I am thankful for all the years he's put into driving the company to where it currently stands--Still creating new, and fun experiences for gamers around the world. He had a personality that certainly left an impact on everyone he met, and as I write, and see the articles and tweets that pop up, he seemed to have the same on the world of gaming. He was very passionate about his work, and I can say with my heart that he will be deeply missed by everyone.
Tonight, I will be lighting a candle for the him. He shaped a company that made a real impact on my life, and love for the industry, and the type of person I aspire to be like. I only hope one day I can be like you.
Rest in peace, Satoru Iwata. Our thoughts and Prayers go Directly to you, and your family. We will never forget you.

SaaS, or "Software as a Service" is a trend in software companies to provide unlimited access to their product(s) for a recurring fee rather than a larger upfront costs for a standard perpetual license. Perhaps the most famous examples are Microsoft's Office 365 and Adobe's Creative Cloud.
Sample Library developer EastWest, makers of the EWQL series of sample libraries, has now jumped on this bandwagon.
It's tempting, I must admit. I could plug so many holes in my soundset right now if I signed-up, but I already pay for Adobe's SaaS and that shit really adds up over time.
I use several EastWest products already. In fact, the majority of my sounds are EastWest products, though. I'll definitely be thinking about this.

SF-O is now running on the IPS4 platform.
IPS4 brings a modern, responsive, design as well as a bunch of new features, such as at mentions (IE @ROB64 ).
This also marks the beginning of SF-O.net 4.0. SF-O.net 1.0 was the old phpBB days, then we went to SMF and Wordpress with SF-O.net 2.0. SF-O 3.0 was IPB and Wordpress, 3.5 was complete IPB.
SF-O.net 4.0 will be the first complete content rebuild since the original wordpress site was designed by @Mr. Krystal. My goal with this update will be to finally make SF-O reach my vision. It will be a lot of work, however, and I cannot do it alone. I ask the community to please assist in this effort. Remember: This is your site, too!

So Mercedes finished 1-2 again. I didn't get to watch the entire race like I expected, but from what I was able to watch, Mercedes started pulling away from lap 2 on. Ferrari and Williams were both able to overcome slightly disappointing qualifying sessions and finish the race 3-4 and 5-6 respectively. The time differentials at the end of the race had me thinking the race was competitive towards the end, but i'll get to that in a bit. The finishing positions were are follows:
FORCE INDIA +1
TORO ROSSO +1
E MARUSSIA +2
TORO ROSSO DNF
RED BULL DNF
FORCE INDIA DNF
Marussia succeeds in bringing both cars to the finish again, which is wonderful news for team sponsors I am sure. Lotus must be thrilled with the fact that they have earned their first points of the season. With this 7th place finish, they immediately find themselves nearly breaking free of the bottom three portion of the standings just one point behind Force India (who just barely missed out a point finishing in 11th with Sergio Perez). Sauber again proves to everyone that they are making huge strides this season with both drivers finished in points positions. They are currently 4th in constructors points. McLaren find themselves near Marussia again, which has got to be concerning for Honda, especially if they hope to continue supplying engines next season.
Red Bull and Toro Rosso are still neck and neck, this week Red Bull getting the better of their developmental team. Red Bull now has a one point advantage on Toro Rosso. The two teams remain 5th and 6th.
Mercedes remains on top, Ferrari second, and Williams third. One would think all three of these teams are very happy with their performances, but it is not so. The Ferrari team principal said expects his team to win on a more regular basis, while Mercedes continues with their infighting nonsense. So one guy is living in the past (Ferrari in this case), while a team that is winning so much it has hurt tv ratings sees, it's two drivers throwing verbal punches at one another after the Chinese GP. Rosberg claimed that Hamilton drove very slowly towards the end of the race in order to sabotage him and almost allow Ferrari to catch up to second. As it was, Mercedes easily had a sizable lead by the end of the race, and Hamilton was instructed by the pit crew to stay on his tires instead of coming into the pits for a new set. Hamilton claims he needed to drive slower in order to finish the race, and that Rosberg could have passed whenever he would have liked to. Personally, I think this is all a bunch of nonsense thrown out there by Mercedes in order to keep fans interested.
Next race is in Bahrain and we will only have to wait about a week for it. It should be a very good race in front of the pack if the Malaysian GP showed us what Ferrari were capable of on that type of track.
