This is the Gibus Engineer.
A docile creature, seeking to contribute to his team every day by creating Teleporters, Sentries and Dispensers. He appreciates the thanks he recieves from his fellow teammembers and friends for doing an honest day's work.
However, this fascinating creature has recently become the target of trolls and internet bullies.
Vicious creatures such as BirdScouts, SnakeSpies and MLG 360 Noscope Snipers have invaded the Gibus Engineer's territory and are taking away all of the benefits of the Engineer's hard work, day after day, as well as being the subject of many taunts and insults. Some users may find the following quotes disturbing:
''Here's a schematic for ya: My ass!'' - Blue Scout
''I hear someone building diaper changing station!'' - Red Heavy
We are the Gibus Engineer Wildlife Protection group: a non-profit orginisation seeking to end the Gibus Engineer's suffering and helping them git gud. To do this, they require hats, weapons and Steam Vouchers to buy Mann-Up tickets.
Please, join our Steam Group today and be a part of this anti-trolling scheme.

Sooo I'm thinking about getting a TF2 server for us to play on, at least for the Halloween event (or whatever) this year, but if there's enough interest, then hopefully it can stay up for a lot longer!
We've never missed a Halloween event, and I feel like not having a TF2 server has kinda broken up "the gang" so I want to get us back to playing together.
I've already asked a few of the old regulars if they'd come and play, and they said yes, so this is where I ask the rest of SFO's TF2 players:
Assuming there was an (unofficial) SFO TF2 server, would you join in on the fun?
Annd (almost) more importantly, what days/times would be ideal for possible game nights? There's a poll above, and if you intend to come play TF2 with us, you should definitely add your vote for the days and times that would be best for you.
The poll probably isn't good enough, so you can also just post a reply here with the days/times you're available or whatever, and we'll see what happens!
After there is enough interest and all, I'll (with the help of some others) get a server going and setup, and we'll decide on the official days for the (unofficial) game nights!
Hopefully this can all work out, and we can have fun playing TF2 together again.
Recently I have been experiencing a problem where my computer will shut down randomly and without warning while playing games. There is no timing to when it will do it, it just does. It doesn't go though the whole windows 7 shutting down sequence, it just turns off.
Pretty much the only thing it does this with is with Source games, but it has occurred once on Saints Row: The Third as well. I have reinstalled my graphics and network drivers and neither did anything. I have also turned my fan onto the highest setting and it still occurs.
I have an MSI GT70 with:
3 GB Nvidia Geforce GTX 670M
16 GB of Ram
Windows 7 64 bit
Usually the split second before it turns off and it shows my computer, my network card software appears asking if I want to do an internet speed test.
It seems to only crashes on these games and I can play other games like DayZ, Borderlands 2 and Skyrim without issues.
If anyone has any ideas they would be greatly appreciated.
...that's not only epic but has a valuable message to it.
