This is my hello to all those in the SoldierX community I don't know yet.

Hello, my name is Thane. You can call me Origin. I was made Vice president(VP) of SoldierX a few months back out of the blue. I haven't been around. I just moved to Texas, and just started collage. I'm currently working on getting my bachelors degree in information technology. Still, I have been keeping my eye on you all. I see a lot of things happened. Most of which I choose not to discuss. A individual brought shame to SoldierX. I plan on making sure an occurrence such as that one never happens again. Meaning, I'll be monitoring the site full time.

A few matters to address...

Recently, various people have questioned the integrity of SX due to some of the members within it and in most cases I could vouch for them. However, there is one member who in my opinion I have had a hard time vouching for and despite all the drama they caused or their failure to simply get the job done we've still had his back. After today though I am now of the opinion that he has shown himself to be nothing but a repeat offender in lack of productivity and integrity.

Server Woes

I had some messages from people saying that they weren't getting emails from the site. I looked into this and noticed that email had stopped working on September 10, 2008. I contacted Zee (our host) about the issue and he mentioned that the server had been rebooted by another admin. After looking into the issue a little deeper, he realized that not only was email not working - but mysql was jacked up as well. Shortly after he noticed this, the site got really wacky and I was afraid that we'd be restoring from backups today. Luckily Zee is the man - so that doesn't have to happen.

Tutorial Contest - From 08/29/2008 until 12/01/2008

We just received a $100 donation from nigger_from_the_mother_country to have a tutorial contest. The contest starts today and ends on December 1, 2008. There is no set number or winners or definite prizes other than SOLDIERX shirts so far. nigger_from_the_mother_country said that he wanted one SOLDIERX shirt and he wanted one SOLDIERX shirt to go to whoever writes the best tutorial. I felt like having a contest with only one winner does not seem to be all that exciting, so the contest will have multiple winners.

New SOLDIERX Shirt Pictures

We are selling all of the extras from Defcon 16 at base cost ($15) plus shipping. Please email [email protected] if you are interested in purchasing.

In the continental US states the shipping costs will generally be $5 which makes the shirts only $20. We have about 40 shirts left over, so order while you can!

Defcon 16 Results

It looks like Defcon 16 went really well. Blake, devDelay, and bitemytaco gave the speech on modified cable modems without the help of Durandal. Due to his lack of participation, he is now removed from the position of Vice President. His current position is just a regular member who helps with recruiting since his main activity seems to be talking to people. Origin is now our current VP (which was agreed on by the current members in case Durandal didn't make the speech). We still sponsored the speech and sent out free SOLDIERX swag for the people who attended.
