(updated to v6.0!) No Man's Sky - My wiki creating script!! for those who do that thing.. :)

Updated: even more formatting updates to make tables mobile friendly, other edits per gamepedia admins/requests.  v6.0 8/6/17

So, yea, I'm still playing No Man's Sky and honestly am not ashamed of it.  I love this game and documenting things in it.  In June 2017, I restarted my gamesave so I could make my way to the Galactic Hub ( more info here: https://www.reddit.com/r/NMSGalacticHub/) and after about 350 hyper drive jumps, I arrived and found a system to call home and to setup a nice NipNip farm on.

After exploring my home planet and system for a while, I decided to contribute to the Hub community and add my system and base to the Wiki.  Initially this wasn't as easy as it seemed it would be. I had to find a template and then edit it with my info and then upload all of the images.  The same was true for my base.  Finally after a week or so of exploring, documenting info about my systems, I bit the bullet and finally created a Gamepedia - No Man's Sky Wiki account and setup my wiki pages.

My home system is here:
https://nomanssky.gamepedia.com/HUB6-12_Sixplant

My base wiki page is here, I even created my own personal Lore around it:

A system I trade my NipNip and AP at to make 10million units a trip w/my hauler:
https://nomanssky.gamepedia.com/HUB7-V-175_Olar_110%25Nip,95%25AP,ImpaOmega

So to address this, I decided to take my geek KungFu scripting and using a very basic cmdline script, created a template generating script: seamonkey420's NMSTemplateMaker version 4.0!





NOTES: 



Version History
 (all .cmd files are available for download and remarks added to script to explain how it works)


  • This is just version 1.0 and i hope to add in a planet and ship template option and also a multitool one later this month.
  • Updated version 2.0: added Planet template (see preview below, be sure to download v2 file)
  • Updated version 3.0: added Ship template (see preview below, be sure to download v3 file)
  • Updated version 4.0 (7/21/17) reworked advanced tables in the star system template for planets in system; much more readable on mobile devices and easier to edit on wiki source!
  • Updated version 5.0 (7/23/17) reworked flora and fauna tables in planet template to be friendlier looking on mobile browsers. probably last update for a while unless requests/bugs in script are found. :)
  • NOTE: v6.0 is up (8/6/17)!  Very minor updates to tables based on some feedback from gamepedia admins on some changes. Close as I can get to making mobile browser friendly for now. Enjoy! 

Download the .cmd file at my Google Drive Folder: NMSTemplateMaker (Google Drive)

Windows 10 Pro - Disabling Windows Updates completely (1607 build)


I'm so done w/windows updates being forced onto my system and the thought of waking up to a computer w/3TBs of personal data not booting because it installed a CU update for Win10 that wasn't fully tested (remember, Microsoft missed patch tuesday in Feb 2017; the FIRST TIME EVER SINCE Windows XP.. not a good sign!!).

Today, I'll show Windows 10 Pro users how to disable Windows Updates completely via GPEdit and local group policy.

Business Geek Rant: Microsoft updates and Windows 10, STOP FORCING THIS ONTO US!!!


So my real job is as a desktop and mobility administrator. i manage my companies desktops/laptops and also build images for them including a 'thick' hardware agnostic Windows 10 Enterprise image. I've been building images of Windows since XP (on a personal basis) and Windows 7 as my real job/task.  I know Windows very well and how each version functions and is serviced.  With Windows 10, Microsoft for some stupid fucking reason decided that THEY were superior testers of their OS and software so much as they would now start FORCING windows updates onto consumer and enterprise users machines, including corporate machines using just WSUS to manage updates.

Some notes about getting PS Vita activated after modding via Henkaku. I did do a full backup of my official firmware PS Vita 3.63 to QCMA prior to softmodding my 3.60 Vita.

2017: My current setups for home and mobile and tech

Happy 2017! well, i guess it is feb already so yea, a bit late. Sorry for the lack of posts; lifes been.. busy and i really need to get up a few of my Windows 10 image creation articles since I've been successful in creating a fully customized default profile image of Windows10 for our new X1 Yoga laptops at work and finally moved to a hardware agnostic approach. ;)  however that will be coming later once we rollout Win10.  Today though I plan to just give an overview of my currrent tech setups; i like looking back 5-10yrs from now and seeing what i was rocking.
