I love you, Wongtong.

Back in 09, freshly retired from RuneScape, I used to frequent OT quite a bit. In fact, I used to own and run the unofficial TIF community channel (I've taken down all the vids I made, but the ones others made are still up).

Anywhoo, in August of 09, forestfrolic made a thread where we could share funny chat logs from Omegle (seen here). And on page 16 of that thread, Wongtong let us know about a new site she found which was basically like Omegle, but with video too. It was called head-to-head.org, and there were basically just TIFers on the site at the time, since it was so new. Fun was had, and we were all posting pictures of the fellow TIFers we chatted with. A few days later, the owner of head-to-head.org changed his domain the Chatroulette.com.

As a 10th grader, I hadn't had too much experience with making money on the internet, but I thought the website was gonna be big, and saw this domain switch as a possible way to capitalize on being one of the first people to know of the site. So, I bought some variations of the site (miss-spelled and related).

Fast forward a couple months, and Chatroulette was the new craze. It had its bit on all major news networks, and pretty much anyone who used the internet a lot become fast familiar with the fallice-filled fun that could be had on the site.

The more popular the site got, the more money I made from the traffic to my domains (I parked my domains for adspace, and sold a few to developers who wanted to make forums/niche sites relating to Chatroulette). Soon enough, I was (and continue) making a few hundred dollars a month from people clicking on adspace (like adsense) on my chatroulette domains/sites that I no longer do any maintenance on.

It's just such a random life-changing chain of events that started in the strangest of places, I just thought I'd share (even if a few years late). Also, I'm wondering how Wongtong was one of the first people to hear about head-to-head. :o

Also, I'm not going to share the domain names or further specifics for privacy and security purposes.

Here's Wongtong's post: http://forum.tip.it/...00#entry3966583

Stellar Dawn Pre-Beta Guide

19 November 2011 - 03:39 AM

Posted Image

Stellar Dawn, the Science-Fiction MMORPG that Jagex will soon release, is largely a mystery at this point. Not much, if anything, is known about the actual game-play. What Jagex has graced us with, however, is a few narratives, tidbits of information, and media to keep the anticipating masses' interest while the game goes through its pre-beta, developmental process.

Hopefully this guide can serve to shine a little more light on this still very-mysterious game!

RuneScape Java Source Code?

01 October 2011 - 05:01 PM

It'd be nice to see the RuneScape sourcecode cleanly lain out for java educational purposes. Even better if it had some commentary/someone picking it apart and explaining its methods, etc.

Does anyone know if such a webpage/download exists?

Probably one of the coolest things I've seen on the intertubes:

They plan to man this rocket in 2013, and are launching a test with dummy in 7 days (as of August 22).
