I’m supposed to be getting my new computer on Monday, which is freaking AMAZING. I got my A40s back from the manufacturer, supposedly they’re fixed. I haven’t been able to test this, because they forgot to return the USB-to-mix amp cord, which is also the power. They just shipped it (or possibly a replacement) today. I managed to get my Justin TV/Twitch TV account mix-up sorted out. I just need to get that cord back for my headset, and I should hopefully be set up to start doing streams of my own! I was wondering what people might want to see me play. I have a rather extensive list of games on Steam. I’ve mostly been playing Diablo 3 lately, but I started playing Skyrim a month or so ago too. I also play Borderlands 2, of course.
On the flip side of that, I need to figure out OBS. Like… damn. I’ve been poking at it some, but it’s going to take me a little bit to figure it out, unless someone helps me out. Or I could stop being lazy and go look on Google for a set-up walk through thing. Or on youtube. Eh. I’ll get it sorted out.
I definitely won’t get to broadcast as much as I would like, at least not right now, because I’m effectively taking 20 credits this quarter. Hurray! \o/
I’m apparently getting a new video card for Christmas, which is extremely fortuitous since my current one is randomly crashing and recovering (yes I tried reinstalling all the drivers). I’d like to get a new processor and mobo too, but I don’t have the finances to support that just yet. This is also good timing, because World of Warcraft: Cataclysm is dropping on the seventh. I also am greatly anticipating Diablo III and Portal 2 as far as PC games. I’ve fairly completely stopped playing on any of my consoles, which seems a pity. I’m a bit concerned that I won’t properly be able to use the new video card since everything else on my PC is about …4 years old.
When I originally got my PC I had given some friends of mine a price cap, and asked them to build me a machine I could game on. I believe it was a mid-range rig several years ago, but it could definitely use some improvements. I’ve tried to do research on my own so that I would better be able to pick components for upgrades myself, but there is so much information that I tend to get a bit overwhelmed. This makes me a bit sad, since I would really like to have a grasp on the hardware. I figure since I love my technology so much (even though sometimes I want to stab it with a screwdriver) I ought to know more about it. I don’t know the inner workings of any of my tech.
As a random aside, I’ve been dealing with growing pains lately. My sleep cycle has been blown even more to hell, because I’ve been having near-agony in my legs. I shift positions, I make little whimper/whine noises, and I’m unable to sleep. The little bit of research I’ve done says there is no known cause, and no known cure. I had them when I was in my pre-teens and thought I wouldn’t have to deal with them anymore. Apparently I’m wrong. It sucks though. I think my pain tolerance is fairly decent and I barely can handle this.
