And it keeps on ticking.

I guess that’s a follow from yesterday. Not that I did a whole lot on the computer today, since it was football day. And I haven’t been doing much anyways, so that kinda compounded the whole thing. I’m looking forward to getting my computer up and running again soon. I hope I don’t have problems activating Windows 10.

There’s not a whole lot rattling around in the old brainpan right now. And you know that’s the way I like it. Thinking just leads to bad things. I am having a few thoughts about the Lost Haven, but thinking isn’t good for a whole lot by itself. Sometimes I want to bring it back, but the same forces that led me to basically abandon it in the first place are still there. (Depression, people) So I don’t know if that’s a thing that will ever end up happening again. Maybe I’m just pining to be part of a group? I don’t know, though. I mean, I’ve spent a lot of time in my almost 40 years by myself, I’m used to it.

But, really, I don’t have the money to spend on another web hosting package. Not sure if that will ever be on the list of things to spend money on. Hell, I’m lucky I still have ui.com. I would love someday to have a web server that I could put videos on. Like, if I could use my own server or some shit, like back in the old days. Back when cable was fresh and Comcast didn’t block port 80. I had a number of sites back then, all running on my web/mail server. Good times.

Can’t do stuff like that today, which is a shame. Unless I’m missing something, that is. I suppose I’m glad that I’m lucky enough to have hosting.

Like I said, not much rolling around the ol’ brainpan tonight. I do want to get back into making videos, but that’s not happening right now, for obvious reasons. But soon. Soon I will have a new hard drive, I will have my shit installed and we will be up and running again. Now to find a way to get more views.

For now, though, I’m off to cry in a corner about my current lack of chemically created alteredness.

And the slow march of time keeps on going.

Ever so slowly, it seems right now. This not having a hard drive thing is killing me. It’ll probably be about a week before that gets resolved, as well. Going to be a long week. I suppose it wouldn’t be so bad if this silly Linux flash drive did anything useful. Well, I guess I can get to the web.

Not much going on right now. I’m awfully tired tonight for some reason. Maybe I should go to bed early tonight.

Well, today could have gone better.

It’s true.

In case you didn’t see it on Twitter, my hard drive died today. Apparently, that’s what’s been wrong with my computer. Now it’s dead. At least I was able to eventually get my important data off of it before it died. And lucky I didn’t delete the copy I made once I started moving files back when I reinstalled last week. Guess I’ll be doing that again at some point.

I’m not sure when that’s going to be, though. I need to figure out what to replace it with. I would love to get a Solid State drive to replace it with, but the one I want is $300. I don’t think I can pull that off right now. I’m not positive, though.

I suppose I can just replace it with a mechanical one easy enough. I don’t imagine that those are too expensive. But I’m still going to want to upgrade to an SSD at some point, though I guess that beggars can’t be choosers, especially when their computer isn’t working.

So, what am I going to be doing until I get a new hard drive? That’s a fucking good question. Right now, I’m running Ubuntu Linux off a flash drive. I suppose it’s good enough for now, though the WWE Network doesn’t function this way. Blah. And it’s not like I can put games on this thing, since it’s running off the flash drive. At least I can access my external drives, though that’s not a whole lot of help. Guess I’ll be doing  a lot of reading on the LP Archive for a few days.

I suppose there’s really not much else to say. That happened about 6 hours ago. Before that, I really hadn’t done much of excitement. Really, very little interesting went on besides that.

I guess I will wrap up here. Don’t expect much excitement from me in the coming days. I don’t have much of a choice but to keep a low profile. Maybe I should fire up one of these consoles?

It’s been a few days.

So, it’s been a few days since I last posted. I had a pretty good string of them going, too. Well, for the most part, at least. It’s not been the best of times, but it could have been worse, as well. But here I am again. And once again, I really don’t have a whole lot to say.

I haven’t gotten any gaming in. I may do some tonight. I’m not sure what, though. I don’t have a whole lot installed right now, and I’m going to try to keep it that way. Maybe it will make choosing something to play a little bit easier.

Of course, WoW should probably be my first priority, since I have to keep paying for that. I haven’t been like..super motivated to plow through the content. I’ll get through it, though. Not sure when, right now, but I will.

Of course, I do have other games installed. And there’s always Doom. Of course, I haven’t started working on that yet. I need to get on that. I’m wondering if I will be able to change the interface in Civ V now that I’ve reinstalled. It wouldn’t let me use the smaller interface, and it made things a little more difficult for me. Maybe it will work now. There’s no reason for it to, but then, there was no reason for it not to, that I’m aware of.

I have another strange problem that has cropped up now that I’ve reinstalled. For some reason, the Steam client won’t load the store. It’s logged in, the library and updates work fine, it’s just the web based stuff that doesn’t work. I don’t know if I need to install something, or what. I wouldn’t think so, but it’s possible? Also, the Steam store doesn’t work right in Chrome. Works in Firefox, though. It’s all weird.

I think that’s all I have for now.

Well now.

I think I have everything pretty well set again, and the site is back, or at least my access to it is back. At any rate, things seem to be trending in the right direction.

As you can probably imagine, what with getting everything reinstalled, I haven’t have a whole lot of time for gaming. Hopefully, I should be able to get some in tomorrow.

The only thing that’s really left for me to do is to get my Doom/Doom 2 stuff set up again. I’m going to take my time and do it right. A feature-rich launcher, lots of source ports, and WADs a plenty. It will be a Doomer’s paradise. I can’t wait. Hehe.

Apparently, I need to pick more specific article titles. This is apparently the fourth post entitled ‘Well now.’ Very interesting.

There’s not a whole lot else to talk about right now. I’ve spent the past two days doing installs. I think I lost some of my save games, though. Like Master Of Orion. Maybe Civ V. Definitely Diablo II. Maybe some other things. I wasn’t super concerned about those as much as I was the other data.

At any rate, there’s not much else to say. For now.

So, guess what?

That’s right, go ahead and guess.

Nope, that’s not it.

I’m reinstalling everything right now. It is not fun!

So, last night, my computer was having an attack and decided that it would no longer do 3D Acceleration. I figured a reboot would do the trick and fix that all up for me. So, I go to reboot and it wants to Update and reboot. I’m like whatever, go for it. So, I hit it, and it reboots, then it sits there and does pretty much nothing for the next two hours, so I restarted the computer, which was a mistake. Windows didn’t like it. So, I ended up trying and succeeding in getting my data off the hard drive, and then I had to go and reinstall Windows from scratch. It wouldn’t repair it, for whatever reason. So, right now I have Window 10 installed again, Chrome, Firefox, GeForce Exp., Battle.net and Steam installed right now. I’m currently watching WWE Network while I work on the other stuff. Like, right now it’s downloading World Of Warcraft and Fallout 4. It will take a while before those are done. I will have to reinstall the Anniversary update for Win10 and I still have to install a bunch of apps, and games and such.

This was not how I was planning on spending my day today. I was actually planning on playing WoW for good chunk of the day, but that certainly didn’t happen. Not fun. I don’t know how long it will take to get everything back to where I want it, but it will get there eventually. I probably won’t be able to get it done tonight, so hopefully I can finish it off tomorrow.

Not much else going on. This has taken a fair bit of my day. I will say that I was using the computer for a couple of hours before I decided to restart and ruin my day, so it hasn’t been a total loss. Plus, I have my phone and the Chromebook, so I wasn’t totally in the dark.

I can’t really think of what else to add right now. I’m not sure there’s anything TO add. I suppose this will have to be good enough for now.

Not a great weekend.

This has not been the best of times for me. Yesterday was really bad, mentally. I don’t know why, but I was just super, super down yesterday. I was definitely happy when bedtime finally rolled around. I was going to get some good game time in yesterday, but that ended up not happening. I even was working on a post last night, but with like 350 words already, I hadn’t even gotten around to what I wanted to say. I ended up scrapping it and just not posting.

Today has been a little better, though it could have been a lot better if the Colts had actually fucking won the game. You’d think the defense could have held for 40 fucking seconds, but noooooo. I get the feeling it’s going to be a long season, and I’m not going to look forward to that. The WWE PPV tonight was pretty good. So, I suppose that kinda comes close to a wash on the day. Of course, the weekend is still a net loss on my sanity.

Now, as one day ends and the next begins, or if you’re me, the day is starting to come to a close, kinda. I have at least four hours of time to fill still. How will I do that? I’m not too sure yet. I’m thinking that I may actually play a game for a little while, but I may just end up watching wrestling history on the WWE Network, like I usually do. Of course, I could also play a game at the same time. It’s not like it would be a first time or anything like that. Heh.

While I haven’t played it any more, I’m thinking about some War for the Overworld, but I don’t know if I want to keep losing. I did look up a strategy for the level, and it basically says to hold out until all the waves are over and then attack. And to keep your troops out of battle as much as possible until then. The only real difference between what I was doing and what the strategy is, is that I was using my troops some. I guess I’m supposed to build even more traps and doors. I mean, that’s the only other thing I can think of, because your defenses are supposed to be good enough to fend off everyone, I guess. I haven’t found that to be the case, and I thought I built a good amount of extras. That last, well, two waves, which are the final waves just rip through my defenses, because there’s so many of them, I guess. Build more? Maybe.

So maybe I won’t even play that tonight. Hell, who knows if I’ll play anything. We will see. I will do something, that’s for sure, but I don’t know what.

I don’t think I have much else to add right now. I’ve gone over the weekend already. I suppose this would be the end, then.

For now.

The days of blah.

They’re like the Days of Our Lives, but different somehow. The days of depression are wonderful, aren’t they? I know I’m loving it, that’s for sure. Okay, maybe not. I suppose this really isn’t much different than any other time that I’m sitting here too depressed to move.

I have things that I’ll never get to say to people that have no idea that I exist, and probably never will. I suppose I should get used to that. It’s not like it’s some new development or something like that. I’m sure there are many others that are in similar situations, with things to say to people they can’t. I know I can’t be the only one.

Anyways, there’s not much interesting going on today. I haven’t done any gaming, even though I told myself that I would. I want to, still, so maybe I will. Well, I might. It’s hard to rip myself away from the WWE Network sometimes, though it will be pretty easy on Sundays for the next four and a half months. PPV days will be a different story, of course. Unless the Colts are playing the late game. Of course, even then, I’ll just shift back and forth between the two, most likely. Anyways, that’s neither here nor there.

It’s hard to stop watching once I get going. Also, I tend to play games that I can watch stuff while playing. I haven’t done as much watching of stuff as I usually do. Besides the wrestling, I mean. I enjoy doing that. I don’t know that it’s really multitasking, but I suppose it could be, but it’s mostly that I’m listening and playing, since the games and the browser window are on two different monitors.

At any rate, there’s not much else to say right now. Nothing useful, at least. I could probably come up with many things to say, it’s just that it wouldn’t be anything worthwhile, even to me. Heh. I suppose that means that I should finish this up. Wouldn’t that be nice?

It’s that time of day again!

Well, it could be. And maybe it is. That’s right, it’s time for me to complain that I didn’t play any games today. Of course, that’s my own fault. I probably could have, but I didn’t. I should change that tonight, since I still have a few hours in the day. I have to say, I would consider playing War for the Overworld, and I may still, but I’m still stuck on that third level. I just don’t know what I’m supposed to do. I get overrun at the end, or close to it.  I don’t know if I should try and rush in, or if I should build more defenses, or what. It seems that you only get two of each of the three creatures that you can get at that time. I mean, I should theoretically get more of them having larger and/or more of that room type. But, no matter how much I built, I could never get more than two.

If I don’t play that, though. I’m not sure what I would play. I have lots of choices. I could play World Of Warcraft, Grim Dawn, Titan Quest Anniversary, Reigns, Devil Daggers, Fallout 4. Really, mostly whatever on Steam. Heh. I have a partial game of Civ V that I could continue. I have a game of classic Master Of Orion that I could work on. I still want to mess around more in 7 Days To Die. I still want to get into Divinity: Original Sin EE. There’s a couple games I want to test with Xsplit. A couple I just want to test period, to see if I even want to play them.

I should do that stuff. Some of it, at least. Or any of it? Maybe.

Not much else to tell right now. I wish it were more exciting.

Well, I did.

I went to bed, I mean, like I tweeted. Then I pulled out the Chromebook. I am way not used to this keyboard. Could be worse, though.

I’ve been doing some thinking today, about TCG’s. Mostly about Pokemon. And a little bit about Magic: The Gathering. But mostly Pokemon. I’m not sure what got me started on it, but it popped into my head all the same. I was thinking about a few more administrative tasks that I kinda have knocking around in my head for my Pokemon stuff. Like, trying to get the Pokemon board that I made to be flat again. Not sure how to achieve that right now, though. I also want to sort through all the cards. The newer ones, at least. I have some deck documenting that I want to do. And a couple of other things.

Speaking of deck documenting, I have this notebook that I have a whole bunch of decks documented in. I plan on putting more in there. Also, I was thinking about maybe even doing some dreaded data entry and put them up on the site for all the world to see. There is a problem with that, however. When I wrote down these listings, there weren’t nearly as many cards as there are now. Part of the problem is that I don’t know how well I documented what set the card comes from. I mean, it’s not a super huge problem, and I could probably overcome it by doing some research, but it’s something to think about.

Now, mind you, I’m not promising that I *will* put them online, but I might, depending on how I feel when I get that far.

I always have thoughts of things I want to do with my cards, but then I never get around to it. I may not even get around to it for a while, still. I would say that it sounds like a good winter project, but really, what’s the difference to me? I’m always in the house, so the season is mostly irrelevant.

To continue on with a theme, since I had the TCG on the brain, I was going to fire up my 3DS and play the Pokemon TCG game. I was all set to go, and then I noticed my battery was mostly dead. How dreadful. So, I didn’t get to do that.

I think that’s all my thoughts, for now.
