Zerver2 - Upgrading ZorNet

Some of you may not have known but I've been in the process of setting up a new server in addition to my current server which will vastly change my home lab environment. I've been waiting for some time to get this done and now is the time! I'm not fully done with my forum post containing all the details to this but you can follow along as I progress and maybe learn a thing or two as well as ask any questions you might have. While doing this I've had to take my old plex server down as well as my

Xbox Series X To Launch This November

Microsoft not only gives a little more detail as to when XBOX Series X is supposed to arrive but the team also made sure to say that "thousands" of games will be available for it. Nothing spells frustration for console owners when there are hardly any games to play at launch. A statement like that seems to be a suggestion to those struggling to make a decision over which console they should buy and the console war is far from over between Sony and XBOX. We also can't forget about Atari throwing

Tidying Up

I've been doing some tidying up on my Plex server so if you are one of those that uses my server please know that it's possible that some videos may have been reset on where you had left off. This is due to the fact that I was cleaning up file names etc. My apologies if I've thrown you off your keester on where it was you were at in the queue.

Temtem? Pokemon? Huh?

Pokemon fans have been asking for it for years, most of us have wondered what it would be like and well..here it is! There's one thing though and that is that it's not made by Nintendo! Temtem was created by a game development company by the name of Crema based out of Madrid, Spain. This massively multiplayer creature-collection adventure was successfully funded in a Kickstarter campaign on June 3, 2018. The game is published by Humble. Temtem is still currently in development but was released t

Surface Neo (Tablet) & Surface Duo (Phone) Show Off Folding Abilities & More

The Surface Neo, Microsoft's newly announced dual screen folding tablet is eye catching and features a 360-degree hinge for it's dual 9 inch displays so that it can be used as a small sized tablet that is capable of having it's screen size doubled.     Even more surprising is the details about a fold-able phone! You might be thinking why would they even try that again after their last fail in the mobile market but to make this even more interesting, it's going to be usin

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

I know the following trailer came out a couple of days ago and I'm just now posting it but if you haven't seen it yet you should really watch it if you are any type of Star Wars fan. I've already pre-ordered tickets and am going to watch it at a local theater with some friends. For many this is kind of an emotional experience as it is the last of the movies. Star Wars helped me fall in love with Sci-Fi, space, and the idea of there being other life out there besides us on Earth. Are you going to

Sometimes You Gotta Give It Another Chance..

Have you ever come across a game that you didn't give much chance before and wonder why in the world you stopped playing because now as you are playing again, you are enjoying it immensely? That's what happened with me last week when I was desperate to play something in the flavor of an MMORPG. I've already gone through the gambit of others and gone back to some of my favorites from the past but nothing has me having a blast right now like Eve Online! Fans of Ogame, and any Sci-Fi space game wil

Season 3 in Apex Legends Is Also Bringing a New Map

If you have been needing something more to twist your arm to play some more Legends, not only do we get a new Champion for Season 3 but also a new map! It looks like we'll see ice and snow for the first time as well and a train filled with loot making it a challenging in motion object to land on and fight for. I don't about you but this looks like fun and I hope I can get some of you to join me in checking it out when it hits October 1st!

Red Dead Redemption 2 - Release Info

I have a feeling that some of the people I know might be playing this when it hits on PC finally.  In a PC Gamer article, the author who's played it on console said "It's basically a massive cowboy RPG". I have to admit my interest is peaked after reading this article. Rockstar set the release date of November 5th with their own launcher including special bonuses available to players who pre-purchase through the Rockstar Games Launcher starting October 9th.

Red Dead Redemption 2 - My Impression

It's sometimes hard to sound objective when you yourself are having no real issues while many others are running a video game. Currently the web is littered with complaints about crashing, stuttering, etc. in RDR2 but I'm not having that problem. What I am having are a few disconnects for whatever reason. It's not that frequent but it's there. I finally had to speak up at a couple of sites online stating that I was having a blast and the game is worth but that's a hard pill to swallow for many w

PS5 Reveal

Today was the Playstation 5 reveal and as usual people have mixed reactions to it. Being a PC gamer mainly I don't really put much stock into any console release usually but that's not to say I don't enjoy some console gaming here and there. I have however paid a little more attention to the PS5 & new XBOX that are coming as they are both going to be pretty powerful consoles and I like powerful hardware! 🙂 I'm not going to go into any depth on that but I will say the PS5 looks alot different

PCIe 4.0 SSDs that "never die"?

Samsung will be releasing two new SSD lines both utilizing PCIe 4.0 granting faster speeds but also are fail proof. The PM1733 and PM1735 series will sport 19 different models  using the HHHL (card-type) and 2.5-inch U.2 formats. The average person will most likely not be able to afford these as there were designed to be used in data centers and servers ranging in storage sizes starting at 0.8TB to a tantalizing 30.72TB! They are said to perform at sequential write speeds of 3,800MB/s. The U.2 D

PCIe 4.0 Spanks PCIe 3.0 - Comparison

In a comparison done by techspot.com the numbers clearly show a huge spankin done to PCIe v3.0. If storage speeds are important to you then upgrading to a PCIe v4.0 standard will show you definite improvements in data transfer time which means more of your life back. Look at the comparison below. (credit: techspot.com)     Product Price Cost / GB ($) Interface Capacity* Max Read (MB/s) Max Write (MB/s)

Over 160,000 Accounts Accessed In Nintendo Switch Breach

If you're not already using 2FA for your account or any accounts that support it for that matter, now is a good time to make that happen as this servers a good reminder that a normal name and password combination is just no longer enough. You can easily set up 2FA in your account and can find the instructions in there on how to do so. Below is the statement from Nintendo:

No News Is Good News Right?

This site doesn't get alot of traffic and that's no secret but it has it's uses still which is why I keep it up and it costs me nothing other than the cost of my internet connection to keep it up. For now and since it's progressed back to that as of late anyway, I'm going to use the ZorNet News section for just that (ZorNet news only) which includes changes to any servers I host or for an indication that something I run is down simply by noticing the site is down because if the site is down then

New World Delayed (Again)

I had a busy day yesterday but a great day which is why this news is a bit delayed. The only part of my day that sucked was to open up my email to read the following below. I realize that happens but I like so many have been pretty desperate to play a new and hopefully good MMORPG especially since we need something to take our minds off of all the crap going on these days. The game I really want (Pantheon) is going to be some time before it's released and New World was something I was hoping to

Move Over Ogame!

Remember all those good times paying Ogame when it wasn't P2W? So many of us were playing it off and on several of us always wondered what it would be like to have a fully 3D game like Ogame but better and not P2W. Well here we have it! Outscape is just exactly what we had always hoped for and imagined and you can grab it on Steam right now for 22.49 until October 29th but not to worry, it's only 25.00 normally so you could always pick it up later if you can't afford it now. I myself don't have

Minecraft Server

For those that dabble around on my Minecraft Server, please know that it is currently down while I work on some finishing touches on the server as well as this new website. Don't worry I'm not getting rid of it, I just need some time to tidy things up. Thanks for your patience. **EDIT** It's now back up!
