On Summer Slam 2018 and Wrestling Entertainment

Why the fuck did I stay up until 6:15am to watch a fricking Pay Per View wrestling show? Probably because my brother asked nicely, and he said this one would be fun. This one being Summer Slam 2018, with a bunch of pretty standard fights and a lot of belts and rivalries that needed sorting out. I didn’t actually pay for it, mind you. There’s a €10 a month subscription to the WWE network and it lets you watch pretty much any wrestling match from the WWE ever. Frankly, that’s a pretty good deal if you like wrestling as much… [Continue Reading]

Infinite Lives

How many times have you been in near-death situations? Hopefully none. Hopefully you’ve never seen your life flash before your eyes. But there’s always been that case where you’ve stepped off the curb and nearly been clipped by a speeding vehicle, or you slip while going down the stairs and manage to catch yourself. Little moments like that. But what if we think about the opposite? Think about how maybe you’re on the brink of death. Every time you close your eyes, every time you blink, you think it might be the last. But you’re stubborn. You’re desperately trying to… [Continue Reading]

On Studying for Exams

It’s unfair for me to be writing this article. For some insane reason, I am naturally good at taking exams. I’ve always done well when it comes to just writing stuff down, at the cost of not being very good at project-type assessments. But to make things fair, I’m going to give out some generic studying tips that I use to make sure I remember things. Write Shit Down You’re probably going to be writing things down in your exam, right? So you need to practice writing things down. Write all the things down. Actually, don’t. What you REALLY want… [Continue Reading]

Ideas To Spice Up Missions

The Acolyte event in Warframe has ended, and the Ghouls event is slowly ending too. The basic gist of it was that the Acolytes, a bunch of edgy friends of the Stalker (last seen in the Second Dream), are roaming around and need to be killed. Each one would hide on a node somewhere on the star chart until someone stumbles across them in a mission, which helps pinpoint the Acolyte’s location. Once they’re found, people can do the mission and search the map to lure an Acolyte out of the shadows, fight them, defeat them and get some rare… [Continue Reading]

The Problem with Riven Mods

When the War Within came out, it introduced Riven Mods, often just called rivens. The idea was that you’d receive a veiled mod with a challenge on it. Equipping this mod on a weapon and completing the challenge would unveil the riven and produce a mod for a specific weapon with randomized stats on it. These mods would cost about the same as rare/gold mods to upgrade and would ideally be a huge buff to unpopular or bad weapons, since the randomized stats included would give you more space for other mods, allow you to experiment more and try out… [Continue Reading]

The Day We Missed

Today is the 19th of September 2017. On the 19th of September 2013, we missed a day. aabicus dutifully explained why in his article on the 20th, informing the few readers that we had that the Daily SPUF was moving to blog.spuf.info, the Daily SPUF website that exploded then miraculously came back to life. The site we had before we ended up here on SPUF.org. I don’t think aabicus thought we would still be going in 2017. I should point out that this is four years later, and we’re still pumping out articles and we’re slowly making our way to… [Continue Reading]

On Rahkshi

The Rahkshi were the six main bad guys in the 2003 Bionicle storyline, branded as the ‘Sons of Makuta’ and made out to be incredibly evil and hard to beat. They were considered genuinely scary beings and were the first sets to have simple bendy knees. Luckily, like the Bohrok and Bohrok-Kal and the Rahi before them, all you have to do to defeat them is to remove the squidgy, organic part and the Rahkshi just fall down. Problem is, while originally the Rahkshi were scary enemies that even the newly powered up Toa Nuva struggled to defeat, we later… [Continue Reading]

The Joys of CSS

No, I’m not talking about Counter-Strike: Source. I’m talking about Cascading Style Sheets. Cascading Style Sheets, better known as CSS, is a language used to make other languages look prettier. More specifically, it tells your web browser what a web page should look like. Even more specifically, CSS tells specific elements in your HTML what they should look like. Using CSS, you can make a background any colour you want, you can make text bigger and smaller, you can make links change colour when you hover and click on them, you can create menus, make pages mobile-friendly,  you can make… [Continue Reading]

Equestria is a Horrible Place

Like many of my articles, this one was inspired by a conversation I once had with aabicus. Now, we’ve mentioned this before, but aabicus has his fingers in many, many different pies, one of them being the MMO called Legends of Equestria, and we’ve even had an announcement for it here. Of course, being a My Little Pony thing, aabicus needs to get his head into all of that, create himself a pony for play-testing and have a decent understanding of its history and lore so he can write quests for it. For a franchise designed to sell toys to… [Continue Reading]

An Article a Day Keeps the Medic Away

Today is December 24th. Christmas Eve if you’re celebrating. The first day of Macromera if you’re a Rethavok. Either way, hopefully it’s a nice day. Things are cooking, people are excited, it’s all good. What better time than to reflect on, well, stuff. The Daily SPUF is now over three years old, having started way back in 2013, with a handful of articles written by a handful of SPUF denizens. Now, over 1200 articles later, we have come a long way since those humble beginnings. From Blog.Org to WordPress, from server to server, we’re still here. We’ve published an article… [Continue Reading]
