Calling All Artists - The 2011 Wallpaper Contest Is Now Open

Would you like VIP access and a SOLDIERX T-Shirt but don't have the cash? SOLDIERX proudly presents the official 2011 SX Wallpaper Contest. The contest begins now and lasts until 12-31-2011. This year we are doing a two part voting system so that everybody has a fair chance. Last year some of the people were able to accumulate votes by submitting tons and tons of work. This year we are stressing quality over quantity. Please see the contest page for more details.

Good luck everybody! Check out SX Propaganda for ideas.

1st Place wins a SOLDIERX T-Shirt and VIP access. For right now we are only having a 1st place. If we receive enough entries, we may have 2nd and 3rd place winners.

cisc0ninja Retires From SOLDIERX

Effective immediately, cisc0ninja is now retired from SOLDIERX. I received a phone call today from cisc0ninja (he hates IM) where he requested that I notify the rest of SX that he is retiring. He felt that it wasn't fair to remain listed as an active member after not having a major contribution to the group in two years. For those who don't know, cisc0ninja recently went through a divorce and has (for the most part) lost interest in computers. cisc0ninja told me that if he gets interested in computers again, he will try to return to the group. We wish him the best and hope that he keeps away from haxxxor girls Tongue

Hacker Database (HDB) Curator Position Now Open

We are looking for a curator for our Hacker Database (HDB). The duties include making sure all of the information in the HDB is up to date as well as creating new entries as information becomes available. While SOLDIERX currently has the largest HDB on the internet (rumored to only be rivaled by the FBI's hacker database), our HDB has not been updated much over the past two years. No hacking experience is required but all interested parties should have strong written English skills as well as enough technical ability to search and compile information for HDB entries. Curator will receive a free SX shirt as well as free VIP for the duration of the position. All interested parties should contact RaT immediately.

New Server Coming Soon

Thanks to some donated hardware from johnabig, we will be transitioning to a new server sometime in December. It is already set up and working, but we need time to fully optimize and secure it. For those interested in the difference of hardware - we will be going from two processors to four and from 8 GB of ECC ram to 16 GB of ECC ram. Also, we are currently using one 15,000 rpm hard drive. We will be moving to three 15,000 rpm hard drives and one 10,000 rpm backup hard drive (we will still be doing our normal offsite backups of course). We are also looking to get some of our community servers hosted other places, so let us know if you're interested in hosting.

Feed a Hungry cisc0ninja $25 VIP Special

It's that time of year again - that time that cisc0ninja visits the rest of the SX crew. If you know cisc0ninja, you know that he's always broke. In an effort to give savings for the holidays as well as feed cisc0ninja, we are offering a short term VIP discount. That's right - you can get lifetime VIP for only $25. The special is going now through November 15, 2011. Please contact RaT if you are interested. After November 15th, lifetime VIP will go back to the regular $40. At $25, this is the cheapest you will probably ever be able to get VIP access (particularly since it's always voted to increase).
