Mini-Update (computer stuff)

Components arrived for my 2015-era desktop. (In a gradual state of rejuvenation)

There’s a brand-spanking new Bluetooth 4.0 USB adapter ready to go to replace the 2.0 one I had for years. (One of the last parts I bought from Fry’s Electronics, before they faded away.) Let’s hope it sees my XBox One wireless controller.

The Logitech C920 webcam works, and it’s directly plugged into my USB ports on the back of the computer, because the 13-port USB 2.0 powered hub is being wonky. I have attempted to reseat the connector on the back of the computer, so we’ll see how it goes.

I also have a front panel with two new USB 3.0 ports to replace the ones on the top of my case that I broke. (Because I was stupid and left stuff plugged in… And caught one my feet in a cable… With minor disastrous results.)

Now, I just need to clean out the office, because I’ll.be damned if I broadcast a messy room to the world. I should get a green screen or something for the back of my chair. Wait… I have three cats. Gah. ?

#149 – Do Post Numbers Matter Anymore?

Voice dictating from my phone, because I’m about ready to zonk out for the night. Is the paragraphs look choppy, it’s just because I’m not used to the Android phone client.

It’s been over 2 years, and I’m still alive, and I’m thinking about getting a bit more active as many places as possible, or at least outside of Facebook and Instagram. I’ll see if I can update my links here when I get a moment. It is quite late at night.

Bridget liked my illustration that I based off her photo, I’ll see if I can link to the completed version, either inserting it here, or linking to my deviantART page. She’s dropped off the net again, about four months ago, but I do have faith that one day, she will return once again. She was my inspiration to drag my ass out of the closet, and become more substantial in the real world. I have not looked back since. Better late than never.

Still working, although I have changed jobs after nearly 3 years at my most recent temp job. Think I might be doing gig work for a while, unless I can find something more substantial. Thankfully, the staffing agency I’m with, one of the majors, has a local office where the staff have my back.

Yes, there have been changes to the theme for the site. After the last major PHP updates with my hosting provider, the theme I’ve been using for about the last handful of years broke, and it looks like it’s no longer supported with current versions of PHP and WordPress. I’m going to work on finding a successor theme that I can tweak to make my own style. Don’t ask me about brands. I can barely establish my own brand.

Always, I am mostly active on Facebook, and Instagram. I still have faint presences on Twitter, as well as deviantART, YouTube, and Tumblr, but those are super low output. I’m working on experimenting with streaming on Twitch, and I do follow a few people out there. I am also working on my personal discord, I just need to do a crash course in how to promote and build out my presence. If I can get a few extra bucks, it will greatly help. I’m just a few cents above wage slaving, but still managed to pay the bills in a house. It’s been an adventure for over the past 6 years, and almost dying over 3 years ago.

So, that’s my update. I can’t make any promises, but I’ll be happy to get a few paragraphs up here, even if it’s just linking back to Facebook and/or Instagram. The important thing for me, is achieving consistency.

In closing, a shout out to the love of my life, Lauren, who I am always grateful for seeing something in me that I didn’t even see in myself. Thank you for being you, and for throwing grenades at me once in a while when I get out of line ? — Love mew, and I’m passing out within minutes.
