The Antwar Saloon

Felix is not in, but you are welcome to hang out in his bar.

Created because we folks from the Star Warfare thread wanted a place to hang out and chat. Other people are of course welcome, so feel free to drop in!

And if you do not get the reference, this is a good opportunity for me to recommend two books, both from John Steakley: "Armor" , and "Vampire$" (which was made into a good movie, too).

Well, it's nice to have a true lounge thread, at least.

"Vampire$"? This $ sign thing is getting a little out of hand, what with Ke$ha and all too =.="

Hey all, great to have a thread where we can chat AND not be accused of going offtopic

Had to look up who/what Ke$ha is, guess I am getting old
Anyways, Vampire$ quite predates her. The book is almost as old as she, and I am quite sure she wasn't "published" with that name

And in the book it at least makes sense: "Vampire$, Inc." are vampire hunters for hire.

Epoch?

I just saw in the Epoch. thread that some of us are still playing it.
DBC, Capricornman; and Exact-Psience seems to be the master of robot combat
I dug it out again myself, busy going through Ultra mode and the Arena.

You've just reminded me to start trying to play that properly, thanks

iPad2 Wifi connection problems on iOS 6.1

Question for everybody:
Since I upgraded my iPad2's iOS to 6.1, I have massive problems with Wifi connectivity.
E.g. our Macbook has perfect Wifi connection in our bedroom, while my iPad2 doesn't get any. Before the iOS upgrade, I still had a connection.
Sometimes it is so bad that I have to stand directly next to the router to get a connection.
My girlfriend's iPhone5 has the same problems, also on iOS 6.1 .
Her old iPhone4 wasn't on 6.1 , and had less problems with the Wifi connection.

Does anyone have similar issues? Any suggestions for resolving it?

Not sure if it's a similar issue, but I've had instances where my iPad 3 is indicating that it's connected to 3G, but it's actually connected to the wifi (I can tell because I'm right next to the modem, and I can see the flashing lights indicating that the modem is responding).

I can't say I know what's going on, I'm afraid, other than the fact that there's something seriously odd about the iOS wifi connectivity...
