Summary for the week ending Jul 8, 2018

Here’s a summary of activity for the week ending July 8, 2018.

Slowly getting back into the swing of things. I’m starting to try out streaming at noon US/Central, and finding which days I am able to stream then. I’ll keep working on finding the right schedule.

I played D&D and a tabletop board game this week. It was fun to set things back up to stream my IRL tabletop as I played a game. I’ve got a few ideas for how to do that better, but I’m thinking that might become a thing I do more. We’ll see!

Don’t forget that I’ve announced the call for submissions to the Odd Order anthology album for 2018, which is themed BIT NIBBLE BYTE!

Summary for the month of June 2018

Here’s a summary of activity for the month of June, 2018, and a few days on either side.

Huzzah! Time to come back from my June hiatus whilst I moved across country, and here’s what’s gone on since I last posted a summary.

I made it. I survived the move. I’m in the new place. However, I’m still not unpacked and I’ve only gotten a temporary streaming space set up because I’m not sure where everything goes yet.

I bought an Nvidia Shield TV. I thought I’d be super tricky and smart, but I got tricked and out-smarted.

My plan to use an Nvidia Shield TV to play and stream games I can’t from my Mac got totally rekt. The brand new update, that just started to roll out to everyone removed the main feature that I bought it for. Here’s the FAQ on the new update: “What happened to the NVIDIA Share feature (Hold of Home button)? We are working on new game sharing features. In the meantime, we have removed this legacy feature”. What. The. Hell.

So now I’m in UPS hell trying to return it. (UPS didn’t even bother knocking when they came to pick it up, and the nearest drop off place that can take it is over 30 miles away from here.)

I might consider buying it again if they add that feature back, but, seriously, why would I trust that they’d keep that feature if they simply remove key line items from what the product is supposed to do?! Ugh. So, no. Do not recommend.

I guess I have to come to grips with the idea that I have no choice but to get a real Win/PC so I can stream some things. But I baulk. I might try going with an Elgato HD 60 S and make do with both my iMac and MacBook, but, really, I’m just trying so very hard to avoid having to buy a machine I can’t afford. Oh, woe!

When I got to my new town I started to explore everything. There’s not much. It’s a small town. But, there’s a Goodwill, and when I went in they had a huge stack of unopened tabletop board games, like, real games, perhaps inventory from a game shop that closed recently? So, I picked up a bunch and I’ve been posting pictures of them.

Also, a crowdfunding effort that I supported back in 2015 finally delivered. Of course, it delivered the exact time I was moving across country, so there was a whole adventure trying to figure out what address to use and how and when to update that in their system. But, a game I spent over $100 on, and had, frankly, given up on ever getting; and, had soured me on supporting any big dollar crowdfunding efforts at all; finally showed up. Of course, the game can be purchased for around $50 now, so I’m not sure, after all this time, what the hell I paid double for this for, but it’s done. Over.

One big thing that I need to mention is that I’ve announced the call for submissions to the Odd Order anthology album for 2018, which is themed BIT NIBBLE BYTE!

Okay, that’s a whole lot of stuff that happened whilst I was away on hiatus, huh?! I’m sure I’ve forgotten some other stuff that’s happened. I’m in the process of finding my new streaming schedule. But, I should be back to doing weekly activity summaries now!
