Battlefield 4 Player Aces Phenomenal Kill Streak

This battlefield 4 player has clearly gotten to know the game inside and out. A video was posted on YouTube a short while ago showing how this player gets a phenomenal kill streak.

He picks up an SV-98 sniper rifle equipped something rather strange, not a typical sniper telescopic sight but instead, an iron sight. When I saw him do it I thought he was crazy. However, he manages to get a whopping kill streak. A regular scope is rather hard to use in close quarters so the best thing to do is to go with a small scope or just plain iron sights. But it’s really hard to be successful rocking a single-shot bolt-action rifle and iron sights at close range.

You can see Julle993’s awesome kill streak in the video below:

As you can see on his stats on the bf4stats website, he is a seasoned player. Clocking up over 73 days of play time (1768 hours!).

He has played  8000 rounds and is ranked in the top 1% in the rankings. With 171,594 kills, 24,006 pf those being headshots. His favourite gun is an AEK-971 with the m16A4 being julle669’s second favourite weapon. He also seems to like his aircraft, having spent 117 hours in an AH-6J and gaining 19,908 kills with it. Julle993 doesn’t seem to hold back on the battlefield.

OS X Yosemite Kills Third-Party SSD Support

The new OS X 10.10 Yosemite was received pretty well upon release, sure it had a few minor hiccups, but overall it was an improvement. But not everything is visible right away, especially not when it’s done in secret.

Apple has silently and without any warning killed support for third-party SSDs in this new OS X version, leaving anyone who uses such as a boot drive and has TRIM enabled with a Mac that won’t start. The cause for this is the new Kext Signing security-feature that checks if the system has been altered and has parts approved by Apple. In itself, this is a great feature and one that won’t effect the average Apple user, but professionals with customized high-end Mac’s might be left with a lot of trouble.

“Kext signing basically works by checking if all the drivers in the system are unaltered by a third party, or approved by Apple. If they have been modified, Yosemite will no longer load the driver. This is a means of enforcing security, but also a way for Apple to control what hardware that third-party developers can release OS X support for.”

The good news is that you can disable the Kext signing and the Trim Enabler tool has been updated to do just that. It however has the downside that none of your drives are protected by this feature as it’s a global setting and not per drive. The blog post about this issue by Cindori Software, the makers of Trim Enabler, also has a guide on how to get back into your system if the Yosemite update should have locked you out due to a 3rd party boot drive.
