Life the Past Few Months

June 12, 2016 § Leave a comment

I’m sure I’ve mentioned this in previous posts, but the past few months have been an extremely busy time for me. Work is keeping me busy during weekdays, and weekends I’m pretty much working for CAPGA (the non-profit I co-founded). I barely have time to play video games, let alone write posts for my readers (though there are very few of you). I really need to start putting away time to spend to myself and collect my thoughts.

101 Rules for… NWOBHM

February 21, 2016 § Leave a comment

1. The more obscure the better.
2. Hearing Metallica‘s cover of “Am I Evil?” does not make you a NWOBHM fan.
3. Without Diamond Head, there would be no Metallica.
4. Without NWOBHM, there would be no Thrash.
5. Constantly complain that Thrash “killed off” NWOBHM; while secretly liking Thrash.
6. When someone asks you what NWOBHM stands for, tell them something like “the best genre of music, ever.” Make sure they still don’t understand what it means.
7. Iron Maiden after “Killers” is not NWOBHM.
8. Complain that Iron Maiden “stole” Bruce Dickinson from Samson, while praising him for his work in Iron Maiden.
9. Dress like you’re from the ’80s, this includes long unkempt hair, ripped jeans, ripped denim jackets with obscure band patches and an even more obscure band t-shirt.
10. Pagan Altar are gods amongst men, this is unarguable. « Read the rest of this entry »

Building a Desktop…

August 9, 2015 § Leave a comment

So, I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything; I’ve been extremely busy with work and have just been relaxing once I get home, so nothing has really been happening.

I did, however, just order a new desktop — parts for one anyway. I ordered them this past week, and some of it has arrived already, with the rest coming in tomorrow. I don’t know why UPS can’t just deliver on Saturdays, or I’d already have it… it’s in Jacksonville for Pete’s sake! I went a little overboard, but gamers and programmers need different specs; a gamer doesn’t need that much processing power (CPU), but needs a good GPU, but a programmer needs a decent CPU and RAM, especially if they use a virtual machine as their development server — at least that’s what I’ve seen. My build was a little on the expensive side because I wanted DDR4 RAM and a newer CPU. I also needed a case and monitors (as I was working with 2x 19″ 4:3 monitors. I only went a little bigger however, but it’s amazing what a few more inches will do for you (that’s what she said).

Courteous Driving: Hazards

April 19, 2015 § Leave a comment

You’re driving along in the center lane (where you should be if you’re cruising with traffic — we’ll talk in more detail at a later date) and there’s someone ahead of you with their hazard lights blinking away… in the center lane as well.

Busy Slinky

March 23, 2015 § Leave a comment

First off, I’d like to apologize for my lack of posting this year. It’s been a few months since I last wrote anything. I do have an excuse though… and it’s mainly just that I’ve been extremely busy and haven’t had time to do much of anything, — even sit in front of a computer and go through my media collection. Hell, I haven’t even been able to finish adding my music collection to my computer!

Guitargasm! A Novel. Part One.

December 28, 2014 § Leave a comment

Danny waits for the lights to go down before coming out of the back room. When all eyes are turned toward the stage, he slips out and moves into the crowd, keeping out of the club staff’s view. His brother Jay let him in through the loading door while the band was getting ready. Jay didn’t want him to get kicked out, so he kept him in the back until it was time for the band to go on. Danny figured he looked old enough to pass for legal, but Jay insisted: “wait until we’re on stage.
