  1. HOLY F*CKING SHIT That is literally all I can say right now. I can't explain to you how annoyed I am right now! Start of the day: Wake up...late...feel like shit. I stayed up too late last night playing Dayz and now I'm running too late to eat breakfast. I hurry out the door...step on a DEAD BABY RABBIT that the local stray cat had killed and decided to lay at my back door. On the way to work: What normally is a 30 minute drive turns into a 55 minute drive due to the absolute slowest drivers I have ever been behind. Not to mention the fact that we were all stuck behind a "Wide load" truck that was going 35 on a 55 mph road for over 8 miles. Finally get to work: (I'm 10 minutes late) My boss who is ALWAYS at least 20-45 minutes late to work decided to be there perfectly on time today and proceeded to question me as to why I was late. (Keep in mind that I am a morning person and was not in a terribly bad mood despite the circumstances) Meanwhile, the only friend I've made at this place is "working from home" and I now have to share the room with my boss who looks down on me because I'm of a younger generation (again, I don't get offended by things like this, it's just a detail I felt like sharing). Start of the work day: I get asked to fix the new shop manager's busted hard drive. (I work in the IT department for a trucking company). I told him I'll take a look and see if I can recover the 1TB data from his external hard drive (NOT an SSD. This thing was at least 10 years old) the manager is sending me emails all day talking about how important the stuff was on this HDD. I joke about what I'm going to find on the drive and he does NOT find it funny at all. (Apparently he's a preacher and he has all of his sermons and things on here). I work my ass off trying to fix this thing while also juggling the entire companies IT issues since I'm the only one at the office and my boss is apparently above doing peasant work like resetting people's passwords and trying to figure out why a certain program on a terminal server keeps crashing for some users. Lunch time: This was actually the only good part of the day so far because I went to the local sandwich shop by myself and sat quietly while eating an $8 sandwich. (So basically it was the only "good" part of the day because nothing BAD really happened. (Keep in mind that still, I am not really in a bad mood or treating anyone negatively here, just kinda rolling with the punches and going about my day) After lunch: Come back to the office and after being blamed for every issue with technology that the company is having (Normal stuff. It's always IT's fault) Aannd the software I'm using to restore the HDD has bugged out. I spend a good amount of time taking the HDD (that means Hard Drive in case you were wondering) apart and making sure the arms were operating correctly. I'm doing this while also answering enough calls to compete with the people answering 911 calls. * It is at this point in writing this that I have now started to laugh about my day and feel a lot better, but I will try to wrap up the story in case you didn't listen to the title and are reading this. * Long story short, the HDD doesn't work and I get fused at by my boss for spending too much time on it when in all reality I just plugged it up, run some software that didn't work and tried to take it apart for a bout 10 minutes (also my boss sits right behind me all day and I can guarantee you that I accomplished 1337 times more than he did today considering he spent 85% of his day dicking off on his phone.) So the HDD doesn't work and I get fussed at for working on it too long. Time to go home: Despite the day being...interesting...so far (really not HORRIBLE, just not great) I decide to stay a little later to work on a few upcoming projects. It's about 5:30pm when I head out the door. I get in my car and head home. As soon as I turn onto the 2 lane road that I have to take to go home (that's one lane for each direction of traffic) and what do I see A F*CKING "WIDE LOAD" TRUCK 4 CARS IN FRONT OF ME. NOT ONLY THAT, BUT A N O T H E R ONE IS COMING FROM THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION AND HAVE TO SLOWLY SHIMMY PAST ONE ANOTHER FOR 10 MINUTES BEFORE TRAFFIC IS ABLE TO MOVE AGAIN. So we get pass the other "Wide Load" truck but I am still stuck behind one and we have a niicceee looonngg uphill climb to get through. We are going 15 MPH in a 55 MPH zone (that whole road is basically 55 MPH). We finally get past the horrible uphill battle (literally) and are able to go the speed limit!...but don't get too excited...what is that I see in the distance...? A fire truck, police cars, and an ambulance...it was a wreck. (for the record no one was hurt, to my knowledge, in any major way. So now we wait...and wait......annd wait. I say "F*ck this" after waiting for 25 minutes in the same spot and decide to turn around to find another way around the wreck. (I this point I am irritated, however, I am keeping calm and cool. It was a nice cloudy day out so it felt cool). I finally get back to the road I was at but further down it and what it that in front of me...? THE SAME FUCKING WIDE LOAD TRUCK FROM BEFORE. The damn thing managed to get around the wreck in the time it took me to go around and find another path OF COURSE. But not ONLY that! I'm stuck behind a lady that insisted on going no faster than 45 MPH at ANY POINT! AAANNDDDD in front of her between her and the "Wide Load" truck were 2 more cars and A DAMN 18 WHEELER (tractor-trailer. Whatever you want to call it) So at this point I am pretty damn annoyed and decide that "hell I could afford a ticket" and proceed to FLYYYYYY past these fools when the next passing zone comes by. Almost home: After dealing with all the other annoying drivers, I finally make it to the pharmacy near my house to pick up some medicine (surprise surprise, I'm a 22 year old with anxiety issues! Yayy!) So I walk in the pharmacy (fairly pissed off at this point, but still smiling to people as I walk by because that's just what I do) and I wait in line to get my happy pills foir about 10 minutes (even though there is no one else in front of me) and the lady finally comes up. I give her my name and all that jazz and she says "Oh we have nothing for you" I say absolutly nothing and walk out of the store. I'm livid at this point. Finally home!?: I'm home, I grab the trashcan from the road and smack the back of my heel with it as I'm pulling it down the driveway (of course) I get to the back porch and what is there? That dead baby rabbit from this morning. I feel bad for the thing so I go grab a shovel and try to dig it a hole. I thrust the shovel into the ground in 4 different locations and smack a root every. single. time. I finally find some random ass spot to bury this thing. I toss it in the hole and put away the shovel. (my wrist throbbing after hitting all of the roots in my back yard). I FINALLY walk inside. Turn on the PC. Load up DayZ log into the server aaannddd... " You are in a queue number 12 in line " FFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU I now begin to write this. I get a good distance into it (about to the part where I said I was laughing about this now) and I finally join the server! I stop typing, walk towards the woods in game as my character was about to go out for a very relaxing hunt aannddd... "The connection with the host has timed out" the server restarted... I have never slammed my fist onto my desk with so much force in all my life. I breath a moment, join back into the queue, and continue writing my lovely story. I have now rejoined the server and am finally going to go try and hunt something. TL;DR: Thank you for not reading this but I'm not gonna sum it up for you...seriously it's stupid and you should just find something better to do with your time. Also I feel better now and this is actually pretty funny to me. DISCLAIMER: I have no harsh feelings towards anyone about the events that happened today (other than that one lady that wouldn't go the speed limit) and I just thought it would be funny for someone to read about my shitty day. I know it could have been a lot worse and I am actually pretty lucky in a lot of ways.I'm in a much better mood now. I've never done anything like this before but it's really funny to look back on it and realize "Wow Wire, that really wasn't that bad of a day and you should stop whining about it." But I hope it made someone smile and maybe even made your day better. Here's for a better day tomorrow!
  2. Every single time I see one of these I think of my amazing friend @Vito.

    It's strange though, because ever since he left the community, I've never found a Brown-Checkered Flat Cap like  the one he use to wear.


    I hope you're doing well buddy.

    Your friend,

    Vance/David Pond.

    Franklin's Hunting Trip

    An album of Franklin Zaou's hunting experiences and adventures.
  4. *You hear static, the sound of a harmonica, as well as the sound of a crackling fire in the background. As the static of the radio clears, you hear a calming and relaxed voice.* "Oh wow, I'm surprised this harmonica has stayed clean enough to play after all this time. Anyway, I'm not sure if my radio has a strong enough signal to broadcast through all of these trees so I'll make this short." "For anyone who can hear this, my name is Franklin Zaou, and I am looking for a few hunting partners. I have spent the last day or so out in the woods about 3 Kilometers North-East of Cherno. I've been hunting deer, and even managed to take one down! Finishing up cooking it now." "Anyway, I am looking for a few good people to join me on my hunting trip. I plan to spend the next few days roaming around, following trails, and following the sounds of the animals. I do plan to cook and eat what meat I can and then probably trade the rest to the trader down in Cherno." "For anyone interested, just know that this isn't the most exciting type of trip. There's a lot of movement, a lot of being quiet to listen for the animals, and a lot of setting up of temporary camps. But, if that sounds like your kind of trip, grab you a rifle and catch me on this frequency." (96.6 MHz) "Oh, if you could also bring any kind of cooking equipment you might have, that would be great. Feel free to ask any questions, and I look forward to hearing your reply." "Safe travels." *The radio cuts to silence*

    The World I Found Myself In

    This may not be the world we wanted, but it's the one we found ourselves in.
  6. @Raven06 I believe he meant seasons in the ways of like a "Season" of your favorite tv show show. Not in literal seasons like summer, spring, fall, Etc. Although, I agree, I'd love to eventually see something like this in the game, but I'm sure we are at least a year or so before modding gets to that point.
  7. I'm in 1337% I may not be as nearly as active as I once was, but this is something that could almost "rebuild" the foundation for DayZRP in my opinion and would improve overall atmosphere every year and make things feel fresh again.
  8. *He would take the radio form his pocket and turn it on* *He would press the PTT a few times and listen for the beep to make sure it was working* *The sound of wind and static would nearly wash out the calming voice coming form the radio* "Hello there. I'm trying to reach out to others still out there fighting to survive. I would also like to share with you the dying words of a wise man named David Pond." *The radio goes silent for a moment* "So my name is Franklin. Franklin Zaou to be exact. I am assuming that I am the soul survivor of an unnamed community that a young man named David Pond founded. The rest of the community has fallen silent. However, there was one last message I wanted to share with anyone that would listen." *Another silent moment passes before the radio buzzes again* "The message I want to share is simple, but powerful. It was a message that was shared with my before I left David Pond in his final resting place. The message was this: 'This world is not the world we wanted, but it is the world that we have been given. So let's make it a great one.' These were the words that David had left me with, along with his personal journal filled with his experiences as the leader of a peaceful community. For anyone that knew Mr. Pond, they would know, not a man of anger or regret, but a man of optimism and hope. A man that wanted nothing but the best for the people that he cared for." *Franklin would sniffle before releasing the PTT for a moment and collecting himself* "Here is what I want to do. I want to carry on Mr. Pond's legacy and dreams. I want to make this world a world worth living in. In the next day or so I will be heading to Mr. Pond's grave site. As far as I know, I am the only one who knows the location. If you want to pay respects to such a kind man, than you are welcome to join me as I travel to the site." *Franklin clears his throat* "As for those who caused Mr. Pond's peaceful community trouble and grief. You are forgiven. There are no grudges held and only amends wish to be made." *Franklin sits in the grass field with his legs crossed and closes his eyes as he looks towards the sky* "I pray to Inari Okami that everyone out there continues to be safe. Namaste ." *The radio goes silent as Franklin releases the PTT"
  9. @gElmo That's totally understandable. I agree, playing at peak times are usually much more enjoyable. I'm not trying to say that you should never play something else if you'd rather play on the server at specific times. I understand that completely. I just want others to see that if they are really itching to log on but the server is just not booming at the moment, that they should think about hoping on anyway to see if they can actually help increase the amount of people online. PS: There are now 6 people online. there was only 2 before I logged on 5 mins ago. A small change, but one that could change others' minds. ? @RebelRP I agree, here recently there has been quiet a few players. I'm just trying to show that, in general, the server population would be higher if people did this. Kind of just trying to open people's eyes for the future. I also agree with the sever needing people looking to get involved with the story and lore. I hope the updates will bring waves of those kinds of people.
  10. @UnknownPhenomenon Don't feel bad. I was bad for it too. Then I realized just how many people probably do the same thing. I mean think about it. Imagine if everyone who did this would just log on in the first place instead of "waiting for others to get on" There would be plenty of players online and tons of opportunities to RP with someone!
  11. So I just re-typed this because I was rambling. Let me make it simple. Have you ever looked at the player count on the server and said "Oh there are only 7 people online, I'll wait and see if more players get on and then I'll join." If not, you're lying that's great! I know I have done this and I shouldn't. What I think we should do is join the server even when the count is low. Why? Because you joining could make the next person that looks at the player count say "Oh hey, there are plenty of players online to play with. I think I'll get online too!" This will (more than likely) continue like a chain reaction as more and more people go looking at the player count to determine if there are enough players online to warrant them logging on. Put shortly: Join the server, at least for a bit, even if the player count is low. I am almost certain that this will increase the overall average player count on a day-to-day basis. If I'm wrong...it's not like it'll hurt anything. So give it a try. Log on even if there are only 3 people online. Or even take the real challenge and don't look at the player count at all!

      And @Wire, if I don't die from the infected or starve and thirst to death sure thing. xD

  14. @Burgz, you make a good point. However, it is exciting to see the amount of people online grow like it has. I agree, our hopes shouldn't be given up, but I do have some hopes that (once the update is fixed) there will be more players to join/return.
  15. Welcome! We are glad to have you here! I was the same way when starting DayZ. I wanted a realistic-feeling experience and all I got was killed by a sniper out of nowhere. When I found this community and server, I realized it was exactly what I was looking for and I loved it! I hope it's what you're looking for too and can't wait to see you around!
