TrueNuff TrueNuff Chat, there's an app for that!

Posted October 29, 2011 at 1:29 PM by Threeboy in TrueNuff
Even though content has been dribbling out a lackluster pace we are indeed working on some new stuff. Our next video will be out eventually and as always we'll update the appropriate channels when it drops. In the meantime we've got a few announcements to make regarding the TrueNuff community and chat...

If you recall, TrueNuff Chat is powered by a thing called "tinychat" and that lets you chat and use your webcam on our website provided you have evil Flash installed. The tinychat dudes have recently given the interface a nice clean update and have also released a free iPhone/iPad app (Android is in the works). If your iOS device has a camera you can chat/broadcast with us while on the go (maybe while you poop). The info to connect to us via tinychat is at the bottom of the TrueNuff Chat page.

We've 'bate tested it for a while and now we're officially announcing TrueNuff Forum chat. Basically when you're logged into the TrueNuff Forums there's a chat function similar to Facebook chat except it's not filled with people you went to school with and don't want to talk to. We're using the "free" version that limits us to 25 simultaneous people but I don't think that'll be a problem since there's usually only 2-3 people at any given time. It's mostly Snuffy and myself drinking beers reminiscing about times gone by...

In other boring news, the TrueNuff Comic and TrueNuff.tv websites were moved to our new web host. There were a few stumbles but should all be cleared up and the sites should load up a bit more snappy now.

Which would matter if we had new content - yeah, we'll get on that...

TrueNuff Movember 2011

Posted October 9, 2011 at 6:11 PM by Threeboy in TrueNuff
Image We're participating in Movember this November. For those who aren't familiar with Movember, it's a charity dedicated to raising funds and awareness for men's health - specifically prostate cancer. In November men from all over the world grow mustaches during to raise awareness and funds for the cause.

We've registered the teams below and made them open so anyone is welcome to join us, grow some sick mustaches, and raise funds for a great cause.
100% of the money raised will go directly to Movember and you'll get a donation receipt for taxes - it's all legit. We'll even sweeten the deal: if you donate donate $50 or more (or join our team and raise $50) you'll get a free shirt (shoot us an email if you accomplsih such a feat and we'll hook it up).

If you can spare a few bucks then hit up our Mospace and donate to team TrueNuff or a crew member of your choice - it's all good.

Mo' money, mo' less problems.

Edit: We've found out that only Canadians can join our team so we've gotten help from our buddy Chris who agreed to captain TrueNuff USA! If you'd like to Captain a TrueNuff team in your country let us know

TNTV What's Old is New...

Posted September 23, 2011 at 11:41 PM by Threeboy in TNTV
Image So, long time eh? We finally squeezed out the long delayed and barely culturally relevant Transformers sketch that we filmed in 2009! It's the debut of Brando and it won't be the last you see of him. He has aged a couple years since filming so hopefully you'll recognize him in future videos. You gotta remember that he's a married man now and each married year is worth seven regular years.

In other TrueNuff.tv news we we finally got that new camera and it was on sale! We've played around with it a bit and it's pretty damn cool. We Smash Co'd my old television and will hopefully use the footage for a new "front bumper" since our future sketches will be in glorious high definition and our old intro might look a bit manky if we scale it up.

Our regularly scheduled writing & development sessions are starting once again this weekend so content should start trickling out at a regular pace again. We have no idea what that pace will be so stay tuned!

More news nuggies after the jump...

TrueNuff The Crew on Google+

Posted July 28, 2011 at 10:35 PM by Threeboy in TrueNuff
Image We're all on Google+ so you can follow our hijinks's there if you're opposed to twitter or Facebook. Here are The Crew's Google+ accounts in order of signing up which is also oddly shortest to tallest:

Bonus: Jeff Raimondo (J.Rai)

Not sure what we'll be posting but as a general rule if you want life or behind the scenes stuff follow us each directly on Google+ or twitter and if you want general TrueNuff news & updates there's the plethora of options at our updates page.

Will anyone (other than me) use Google+? Will it dethrone Facebook!? Stay tuned!

That's him officer, I'd recognize those pixels anywhere!

TrueNuff Moved Web Servers!

Posted July 19, 2011 at 9:39 AM by Threeboy in TrueNuff
Image We've moved the TrueNuff forums & blog to a new website host to see how green the grass is on the other side. The move itself should all be automatic for you meaning you shouldn't have to do anything. If you can read this post you're successfully connecting to the new web host.

If you can't see this post have a few beers and it should "reset your firmware".

Life Duke Nukem Got Me Fired

Posted June 12, 2011 at 1:28 PM by Brando in Life
ImageI used to work at a White Spot restaurant in Richmond BC, Canada. I started when I was 15 years old, cleaning tables and wiping seats. It was my very first job. Through the years I learned every role outside the kitchen; seating guests, doing dishes, making desserts and waiting tables. I had a spotless record as an employee; I worked hard, I was well liked, I knew every staff member and most of the customers too.

I used the money from that job to purchase my first PC Game: Duke Nukem 3D, which I'd seen running on a state-of-the-art Pentium 133 at the local electronics store. It was cocky, aggressive, violent, sexual, had realistic set pieces - it was everything my teenage mind could hope for in a game. Little did I know, six years later that game would cost me my job.

TrueNuff Mothersite Update

Posted April 18, 2011 at 12:10 AM by Threeboy in TrueNuff
ImageOur main site has gotten a much needed update!
  • Main
    We trashed that old useless "network" bar setup and went with a simpler "springboard" styled layout. Ever since we split our sites to their own domains our main domain has been destined to become a hub. Today we realize that vision and it only took us a year or two
  • Updates
    The subscribe page got a drastic overhaul. The old layout was a confusing mess so this update is a breath of fresh air.
  • Chat
    We had an IRC/Java chat room back in the dizzay but this one is much easier to use and you can webcam chat too. Please don't be a dick, and please don't show your dick!

The blog & shop sections will be getting updates in the future too - hell we might even get our poop together and launch SpendMore.ca one day.

One day.

The next blog post by me should be about the next TrueNuff.tv video or Brando will hit me.

TrueNuff Forums Updated With Mobile Skin

Posted April 16, 2011 at 2:04 PM by Threeboy in TrueNuff
Image Our forum software has been updated to the latest version of vBulletin that includes a new mobile skin optimized for smert phone browsing.

  • Mobile Skin
    The new mobile skin doesn't work very well on my crappy smert phone it works great on Blerkberries and iPhones. The forums should auto-detect when you’re on a phone and if not there’s a drop down menu at the bottom left of the forums to switch to the mobile skin.
  • No More Account Moderation
    I'm no longer manually approving forum registrations since spam bot registrations (and registrations in general) have slowed down. We have however added a couple required skill testing questions for new registrations. We also reto-hacked the answers into existing forum accounts so the system won't bitch at your face if you try to update your profile.
  • Techie Nuffies Unite
    There's a new tech sub-forum for talking technology. I had a tech sub-forum at the old "Threeboy Forums" back in the day and I think with the amount of tech stuff being invented these days it’ll be a welcome addition.

The forum rules have also been updated and reorganized, you can find them here. Also we've been having some fun in this thread - hop in and make your own image if you get a chance.

The secret word is beer.
