ZDM is officially out

z609 Domain Management is a management service I conducted for quite some time, and I’m officially happy to say that it has officially split from my website. While its services are still hosted here, they won’t be for very much longer and as such anyone who is using the service will be required to update their scripts sometime in the future. The new site for ZDM can be found at https://networking.toxicpvp.net/tnm, and the service has been renamed Toxic Networking Management, or TNM for short. It is now owned by Toxic Networking or formerly Optimus Networking. They will be able to provide much higher-quality service and speedier servers for our clients so this will be a large benefit.

Official (updated) z609 PC Specifications

Hello there! You are probably here because you are interested in the specifications of my personal computer that I use on the daily for a variety of tasks, or because this is on the homepage and you happened to scroll by it. Regardless of the circumstances in the reasoning behind your viewing of this article, this is the official, updated list of the components that are currently in my system, as well as any peripherals that I use. Let’s get started! The Processor. The CPU as well as many of my other components in my system have remained the same since my last update, but there have been some slight modifications to the entire system. Otherwise, the processor remains the same: a quad-core Intel Core i5-4440 clocked at 3.1 GHz w/ 6MB of L3 cache, with the ability to TurboBoost up to 3.3 GHz when it is deemed necessary by the host.

I bid you farewell

There is a wall. And no, it’s not the one President Trump wants to build, either. This wall is the wall you hit when you don’t know what to do next, or what you want to do in the future. When you know you’ve done something right but it becomes harder to see the bright future you saw before you made that decision. It’s something that puts a shadow of doubt on the current situation, and makes you lose hope. No hope for the future. And no hope that what you’re doing will succeed. And no hope that anyone will actually understand your wise decision. I seem to have hit that wall with the recent changes to the administration on OptimusMC, where I shifted away from the majority of the staff team and focused on trying to make OptimusMC more of a business, the way it should have been set […]
