Good old days, no one remember me but i remember this being my first RP server in 2009-2010's, i joined and used to play on my laggy 256 MB PC.

I didn't think XP onwards would even boot with 256MB of RAM let alone run SA:MP? Pretty sure Windows 10 uses 256MB of RAM to blink the cursor.

Played a bunch of Warzone with Brennan, it's pretty good and I'm pretty terrible. So the same as most games nowadays really.

As for lockdown... all good here. I'm used to working from home a fair bit anyway so this is just more of that. Actually I've been more sociable than usual in lockdown as it's way easier to organise a pub quiz via video chat with friends than it is to organise one in real life!

I'm classed as an essential / key worker, which should give you some idea of how loose the classifications in the UK are...

half the people on here are dead irl

negatory nothing kills a raz so soon.

even fell drunk dunked my knee, quit alcohol, grew up to an extent and still powering on!

and Drake, im coming up for 29 this October you should never feel old think me Redgie, Brendan , Raul and Oggz were the oldest at one point ahaha.

Shadow must be like 90 by now

Trust you guys to pick the option that requires more work of me  ;D

RRP, where you're the scapegoat and we all jokingly chase you and hunt you down and once you're in our cluthes we jokingly rape you and kill you, for being such an amazing and righteous server owner throughout the years. Jokingly.


I often daydream about putting the server back online for a day, and when I think about it I'm always torn between 2 things:

1. RRP is by far the most "loved" server and script, with a (once) bigger and more loyal community of die hard fans
2. CRPG was some of the most fun I've ever had whilst gaming, and is more of a "play for a day" game than RRP

I am by no means saying either are coming back up (it would take a lot of work to get CRPG in particular back online), but it's something that I've often though about.

If there are no pictures, then this never occurred.

Just looked and I can't find any... did find a bunch of other ones that sent me on a real nostalgia train though
I am afraid this event never took place.

Stop it I already doubt enough in life

Yes it was the satchel ones! Think it may have started / ended with grenades but satchels were definitely the main feature now that I think about it.

... that time we had a competition where we gave everyone 10,000 health and unlimited grenades, and then had a competition to parkour between buildings using the blast from the grenades? I'm not even sure whether it was on RRP or Pug's, but I remember it being hella fun. It was probably late one night when very few people were online.

I got an email that my Photobucket account was changing and it prompted me to see what on earth was on it, only to end up on a SA:MP nostalgia trip.

That's definitely not where the big money is at and never will be, sorry to break it to you, I personally know people who can easily clear $50k in a day and they have been mentoring me for the past 2 years give or take, coding literally sucks the life out of you, what you do is essentially sit your bottom infront of a pc and write the code lol, everyone gets their kick out of something but to my understanding this is monotonous as f !

I never said the big money was in coding?

As long as he enjoys what he does for a living and makes money out of it, I don't really see a problem here. On the other hand, I do get where you come from in terms of sitting behind a screen all day sucking the life out of you, it makes sense, as a videographer/designer it can be pretty fucking annoying and stressful sometimes but that is always where we have side projects in place. Like Redgie's books, how's that going by the way?

Haven't checked on sales in a while, but it was always a passion project. I do often thinking about writing another one (not in the same genre), it's something I might explorer later on in life.

So that's why Lance was so arrogant, cocky and snide all the time and made fun of the servers and forums whenever he got the chance, claiming they're coded in a very poor way and was practically unstoppable whenever he decided to either hack into the admin control panel or whatever you call it and exploit multiplayer mechanics. Haha, that was fun to watch.
Not sure about the forums - they weren't made by me ha. As for the rest, I think he "hacked" in because one or more of the UCP inputs weren't protected against SQL injections, it's a script kiddie trick, and one any professional is taught to guard against on day 1. Could be mis-remembering though.

Anyways, back to the more relevant part of your post, is coding even worth it ? I know there's huge market for it and they pay is probably not as bad, I've got a few friends who eventually graduated and obtained their coding degrees but when it came to actually applying their knowledge in order to get paid they told me they regret every single second spent learning that thing lol, to make things worse I keep nagging about the fact that whatever they make for a whole month I make in less than 4-5 business days hahahaha
I definitely wouldn't say I'm a coder, more of a developer. That said, I work for a small company and my role is more of a junior-CTO; I code, I manage, I do devops, infrastructure etc.

Becoming a coder (software developer) is definitely worth doing nowadays yes. If you're willing to move around, you can secure pay jumps of 10-20% a year, and if you're based in the UK or US, the opportunity to contract / freelance can land you a £70-80k ($90-100k) salary before you hit 30. If I was going to go into the industry all over again now though, I would probably focus on security / forensics, as that's where big money is at the moment. A former member of this community is testament to that!

Fact is, I'm neither old enough nor experienced enough to comment with any real qualification. My ultimate advice would be this: Do something you enjoy.
