Welcome to the 56ok.org

If you hear bandwidths of 10 Megabits in, 5 megabits out, and think that that's the service you get in a third world country, this is not for you. This is for people who lust after 10 Megabit connections and can afford one or more consoles. This website shows you how to get creative with online games, and find ones they don't automatically get kicked off of.

Random strangers are better Xbox firends than my REAL OFFLINE friends.

I never bought an Xbox game console at all before my Xbox One. The Origianl Xbox as well as a 1 year live membership was won by my offline firend, Jamal "zophar321" had a bunch of non-collectable Original Xboxes to give to friends as a prize on Life to the Power of X. So I got one in whatever year he competed on. And it was okay, until we got Xbox Live in 2007. Then it was slightly better for about a few months. Unfortunately most of my friends were moving on to the Xbox 360.

Luckily Jamal came to the rescue again when he competed in a Bomberman Live tournament, and got 2nd place, and would have had 1st, worth 1 million Xbox Live points where 400 points equals $5, if it wasn't for the fact that number 1 played 8 hours a day in "ranked games" against plants who would always meet on the same server and throw the game his way. But he won a console with a 120 GB hard drive> He gave the hard drive to someone else for THEM to upgrade, I got HIS old 20 GB hard drive, and got a 360 for free.

I talked with my friends, I played with my friends. I made new friends. Xbox 360 was fun.

Then in around 2014, Jamal said all my friends will be online on the Xbox One and rarely touch the 360. So I saved my money, I found a refurbished Xbox One with Kinect. for $100 less than an Xbox One without Kinect at the time. Then as it turns, I see my friends online. I send them messages. I wait for them to respond. Apparently, none of them want to talk to me.

Unbeknownst to me, they turned off their communications, but according to Xbox Live, it said they were online. Apparently I spent hours waiting for my friends, and playing games for one, and not connecting to my offline friends.

I called one of them. He was quick to pick up the phone. I asked why did you pick up the phone so fast, but not repsond to an Xbox page? As it turns out, he said he disabled messages. It gets in the way of movies, especially the anime with the English subtitles. It turns out my other friends do that too. None of them actually "game" on the gaming console, they watch download movies and TV shows. And ALL of them diasbled their messages. So how do I contact my Xbox Live firends if they disconnect the doorbell without a "do not disturb" sticker on the doorbell.

Which gets me to the network. If you read the second part of Netrogames and scroll down halfway, I came up with a system called Gamer pager, where you tell your texting cell phone whether you are "on call" or "busy" and list ALL the games you're willing to play with strangers online. You can either send out a page when you want a game, or receive pages when doing other things. You can play a long quest game until someone calls. You can watch a movie wile you wait for someone to page you. You don't have to even be by your Xbox. You can be on a Playstation, Nintendo, PC, or even away from anything tech except your cell phone, and you can even do homework until the game buddy calls.
