  • Life Update 2

    Things are moving along, albeit slowly. Hopefully, content will start rolling on this site, YouTube, and the other sites, but it has been hard to find the time, motivation and energy. We got moved out of our house and into the parents’ basement while we finish renovations, cleaning, and packing items not immediately needed, and wait on a response from potential buyers. I cannot wait to be out from under this place and have that weight off my shoulders and one less set of tasks on my list, not to mention cashing in some equity and paying down some debt. Perhaps I can use a little bit to build a new PC in the next year; I am in dire need, which I will discuss in another post soon.

    So far, I have at least managed to keep Don’t Starve Saturday alive, and in the next couple weeks, I plan to complete my Civilization V series to make way for starting Civilization: Beyond Earth when it releases in a month. I also have another Don’t Starve series in the works, which will provide a slightly more original idea than a simple Let’s Play, assuming I can make it even half as entertaining as what is in my head.

    Also, I managed to test out the Internet connection a bit. It is 1.5 Mbps DSL, so it is sufficient to play Battlefield or some Robot Roller-Derby Disco Dodgeball online, so long as no one else is doing anything too taxing on the network. However, it takes for frickin’ ever to download updates and such, so I will have to let my PC run updates during the day if I plan to play that night. I also found that taking videos to work on my portable hard drive and uploading from there is much better (thank you open Internet at work!).

    Well, I only have time for this simple update, but I will have more coming in the next few days and weeks, so stay tuned!

  • Life Update – Moving and Weak Internet

    I don’t know about everyone else, but life has been rather busy lately. There is little time to even breath at work, though things should slow a bit in the next couple weeks thankfully. I am hoping things will slow down soon in my home life as well. You see, I am in the process of renovating my home to sell, as well as packing to move.  It is a bit overwhelming, as I have been in this home for over a decade, so moving is exciting and scary all at the same time. The first leg of the move will be the easy part: we are moving into the parents’ basement while we finish renovations and looking for a new job. The second leg of the move will be taking us to a whole new state, assuming a good job can be found first.

    All this is to say, content will be slow on YouTube because I will have little time to play games or edit videos. Hopefully, I can still find time to throw some posts on here and get this site moving along, getting myself a little more practiced with the blog. Sadly, I don’t know just how much I will be limited by this process because I will need to devote a lot of time to these renovations, taking time away from the games, but also because I don’t know how good the Internet connection will be at the parents’ house for playing and uploading. I don’t even know if I will have a good place to set up my PC. It’s all part of the adventure, though, so I can’t complain (too much).

    I put together a channel update video where I say much the same thing as here, but with Far Cry 3 in the background, so it’s better. 🙂
