Howdy Y’all!

I’ve never quite written one of these before, so it might be quite terrible. Anyway, my interest in TheHelper.net was spurred on by my cousin (a long-time unregistered lurker of the site) who was using 1)ark_knight’s All Heaven Vs. Hell Combinations thread to destroy his friends in Warcraft III. I first encountered the game while at his home for some family event. As soon as I figured out what it was, I held a lemonade stand (I was young, give me a break) and saved up the required $45 for the Warcraft III Battle Chest.

I was not new to the real-time strategy genre and feel of Warcraft III. I proudly own the first Age of Empires game, and have since acquired all of the other ones through AoE 3 (which I am not very much a fan of). Those who know me know that I enjoy playing games for the story found in the campaign. Since I had previously only seen Warcraft III as an online game (Footmen 3.9 and Heaven vs. Hell), I doubted that it’s story could be very compelling. Needless to say, I was wrong.

After successfully beating the campaigns of both The Reign of Chaos and The Frozen Throne, I moved to playing games online. Some of my favorite maps have been Green TD (12.0 was my favorite version by far), Troy (the scope of it was so flipping cool! I’m also a huge history geek, so there’s that), Hero Line Wars (both Custom and Liton), Footman Frenzy (including all custom derivatives) and Island Defense. I still played the odd game of HvH and Angel Arena, but those were not nearly as appealing to me. What else can I say? The online play had me hooked for a solid three years and led me to a community which I have been a part of since 2006 (dannnggg that’s 7 years).

Despite popular belief that I am ripping off the noodle company “Marichan”, the name “Mahucharn” originated from my World of Warcraft days (okay maybe a year of playing total, probably less). I needed a character name for my tauren druid, so I used the in-game name generator and it spat out Mahucharn. It’s been my username on virtually every non-professional website since. And now for something…. completely different.

I saw a serious need for some revamping in the humor section. I began posting content in the Funny Picture Thread a few times a day, often posting content from MemeBase, VeryDemotivational, and GraphJam because I was in high school and thought it was funny. After a while, I asked TheHelper if I join the ranks of the staff and help moderate the humor section that I loved so dearly, to which he happily responded “yes”!

As of late, I have been quite inactive (though I still lurk and post occasionally) mainly due to college. I’m majoring in psychology and managing two part-time jobs, which seldom leaves me time to be as active as I would like to. On the off chance that you see me online a game (I play League of Legends every so often- Azucharn [a derivative of Mahucharn] is my username) please feel free to say hello! I’d love to play with you!

That’s all I have to say J. You are all lovely people (especially you).

Huh, I had always assumed you were just really into noodle cups.

Thanks for the idea tom_mai!

@Varine Yeah... it's pretty common. I actually strongly dislike cup and noodles/top ramen. This is a problem (see: I'm in college)

    Crazy how much 3d printing has come in the last few years. Sad that it's not as easily modifiable though
  • Varine Varine:
    I bought an Ender 3 during the pandemic and tinkered with it all the time. Just bought a Sovol, not as easy. I'm trying to make it use a different nozzle because I have a fuck ton of Volcanos, and they use what is basically a modified volcano that is just a smidge longer, and almost every part on this thing needs to be redone to make it work
  • Varine Varine:
    Luckily I have a 3d printer for that, I guess. But it's ridiculous. The regular volcanos are 21mm, these Sovol versions are about 23.5mm
  • Varine Varine:
    So, 2.5mm longer. But the thing that measures the bed is about 1.5mm above the nozzle, so if I swap it with a volcano then I'm 1mm behind it. So cool, new bracket to swap that, but THEN the fan shroud to direct air at the part is ALSO going to be .5mm to low, and so I need to redo that, but by doing that it is a little bit off where it should be blowing and it's throwing it at the heating block instead of the part, and fuck man
  • Varine Varine:
    I didn't realize they designed this entire thing to NOT be modded. I would have just got a fucking Bambu if I knew that, the whole point was I could fuck with this. And no one else makes shit for Sovol so I have to go through them, and they have... interesting pricing models. So I have a new extruder altogether that I'm taking apart and going to just design a whole new one to use my nozzles. Dumb design.
  • Varine Varine:
    Can't just buy a new heatblock, you need to get a whole hotend - so block, heater cartridge, thermistor, heatbreak, and nozzle. And they put this fucking paste in there so I can't take the thermistor or cartridge out with any ease, that's 30 dollars. Or you can get the whole extrudor with the direct driver AND that heatblock for like 50, but you still can't get any of it to come apart
  • Varine Varine:
    Partsbuilt has individual parts I found but they're expensive. I think I can get bits swapped around and make this work with generic shit though

    Heard Houston got hit pretty bad by storms last night. Hope all is well with TH.

    New recipe is another summer dessert Berry and Peach Cheesecake - https://www.thehelper.net/threads/recipe-berry-and-peach-cheesecake.194169/
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I think we need to add something to the bottom of the front page that shows the Headline News forum that has a link to go to the News Forum Index so people can see there is more news. Do you guys see what I am saying, lets say you read all the articles on the front page and you get to the end and it just ends, no kind of link for MOAR!

    Finally finding about some of the bots that are flooding the users online - bytespider apparently is a huge offender here - ignores robots.txt and comes in from a ton of different IPs

    @The Helper I'm really not seeing the "Signature" link in the sidebar on that page. Here's a screenshot:
