Happy 17th birthday Hardfought!

By K2 on October 22nd, 2017 at 12:51 pm EST

Today marks Hardfought’s 17th birthday. This is the first birthday post in a long, long while that will have something more to acknowledge other than the passing of another year of existence. A lot has happened over the past several months that has basically revitalized the purpose of this server. With the help of several good friends in the NetHack community, we’ve started a multi-variant NetHack server, have successfully participated in Junethack 2017, and are about to host a one-off /dev/null/nethack tribute tournament in just a few days. And there’s even more things to come, and soon. Exciting times indeed ;)

The /dev/null/nethack tribute tournament is all set to start at 0700 hrs UTC on November 1st. We have everything in place now, and we could kick off the tournament today if we wanted to – we’re way ahead of schedule. With the remaining time we have left, it’s finding and fixing small bugs, tweaking, making adjustments, etc. Mandevil has done an outstanding job on the scoreboard and clan management web pages, which you can access via the menu up top (NetHack –> /dev/null), or you can link directly to it here. Tangles worked his magic, and made it possible for us to host three servers in total for the tournament – the main one here, another one in London, and a third on the US West coast that’s hosted by NAO (thanks dtype!). User accounts and logfiles are synced across all three servers, you only have to register an account on the main server, and within a minute it will exist on all servers. You can manually sync your rcfile from the main server to the remotes as well. You can also start building your clan now, and can send invites to anyone who’s already registered. For more information on how to connect to any of the tournament servers or any other functions or how-to’s, see the ‘About’ page on the tournament page I linked to earlier in this post.

So happy birthday Hardfought! See you all online…

Happy 15th Birthday Hardfought

By K2 on October 22nd, 2015 at 4:29 pm EST

In true fashion, I’ve waited an entire year to do a news post. Hardfought turns 15 years old today… fifteen – friggin’ – years. Not bad for a site that doesn’t do much of anything anymore other than the occasional forum traffic. I’ve re-upped the domain for another five years, so you’ll be seeing a 20th year announcement five years from today, hah. Not too many websites that I can think of that are still up and running after this long. Maybe Beer for Breakfast but I think I have a year or so on them. Hey, kudo’s to BfB.

Anyways. If you’re reading this, you must be a long-time member. So thanks for stopping by. Drink one for Hardfought tonight in celebration.

Oh yeah… what do ya think about Back to the Future Day being yesterday? Crazy, yeah? Too bad the Mets put the smack down on the Cubs, one less prediction that came true. Have a good one everybody, cheers.

Hardfought becomes a teenager…

Well, it’s happened. Hardfought officially became a teenager today. Happy 13th birthday to the site and the remnants of its community. Thirteen fucking years… holy shit. The average length of your typical American marriage doesn’t even come close to making it this far. Hah! Alrighty then. Well, again, happy b-day Hardfought. Let’s go sign you up for a facebook account, now that you’re old enough…

Buh-bye 2009…

By K2 on December 31st, 2009 at 1:27 am EST

Figured I’d do this post now while I’m able, because I will be out partying with Jenn and friends tonight ;-) Have a happy new year gang. This year was a crazy one, I don’t even know where to begin on listing all the shit that’s happened globally over the course of 2009 – but I’ll be glad to see it go. I’m all ready for 2010 ;-) So have fun tonight, and if you do decide to go out, make sure ya got a plan… designated drivers, a place to crash, etc.

Hardfought stuff – guess what? I completely forgot to post back in October about HF’s ninth birthday. What – the – fuck!? I can’t friggin’ believe I did that. I had just finished mid-terms, so maybe that’s why. I dunno. Anyways, happy belated ninth birthday Hardfought! I definitely wont forget our 10th anniversary next October. Also, I have plans to ‘finish’ the website finally while I am still on break in January. There’s quite a few scripts to update including the board itself, and I still need to finish fixing the look n’ feel after getting away from using OnePress. Bleh.

Alright… have a good one everybody. See ya next year ;-)

Hardfought – Eight Years Old

By K2 on October 22nd, 2008 at 2:36 am EST

Yup. Hardfought turned eight today. Not a whole lot going on in HF-land for the last several months since the game servers came down again. We’ll be coasting along for awhile still this way. That’s ok though. Forums are still active, a lot of the original gang still drop by now and then to say hello or voice their opinion on some interesting topic, or ask advice on their new computer build.

So, happy birthday Hardfought, and we’ll celebrate again this time next year.
