RO on Ubuntu FTW!!

05/07/2015 | Comments: 0 | Categories:

I have finally figured out something I have tried for a while to get going - how to get my custom Ragnarok Online client to run in Ubuntu.  As I have been trying to slowly transition away from Windows, this as one of the things holding me back.  The Beta RO server itself has been on Linux for a while (I just moved it to a new VM).  Now I can actually PLAY RO on a Linux machine.  This is huge.

Those familiar with Linux have most likely heard of Wine - the suite of (...)

Happy Birthday Grandpa

For many, December 7th is Pearl Harbor day.  For me, it is also importantant for another reason.  On this day in 1932, Charles "Chuck" Jones - my grandfather was born. 

Hailing from West Virginia, Chuck was a simple man.  He greeted just about everyone he crossed paths with - wether he knew them or not.  Chuck believed in helping his fellow man.  He took things slow.  With him, business concluded with a handshake.  He fought for this great (...)

On September 21, 2001, Kingdom of Kalisto was born out of my facination with Anime and Video Games.  Over time, my interests have shifted; my life changed significantly.  But Kaliso's theming and domain remained the same.  With Kalisto version 9, the site will align more with my current life experiences and interests.   I still like Anime and Video Games, but these are no longer the focal point of my attention.


One facet of this new focus is (...)

Kingdom of Kalisto 9.0

11/22/2013 | Comments: 0 | Categories:

Welcome to the newest iteration of Kingdom of Kalisto!  This version has been in beta for quite a long time and has finally been published.  With Kalisto 9, the site will take a somewhat different path and flow from the Kalisto of the past.  Most notable are the removal of the old (and unused) PHPbb forum and non-image downloads.  In their place will be a blog and a new suite of media downloads.


Thank you for stopping by and keep an eye out for new (...)
