Hello all! I just wanted to announce quickly that I am suspending my stream for the rest of this week (not that it amounts to much, I think tonight was the last time I was scheduled to stream for the week). I have posted a couple of times recently on the my social media that I’ve not been able to stream because of “computer issues” -and I want to be dead sure they’re not going to resurface before I stream again (they usually turn up within an hour of my scheduled go-live times and leave me scrambling trying to get them fixed). So instead of pulling a Kylo Ren temper tantrum, I am going to take a few days, relax, breath deep, get my gear together (maybe even with minimal intentional hardware damage, help me Grandfather), and then get back online next week.
If you’re curious about what’s been going on, this last weekend I took a roadtrip and took my computer with me so I could attend the Unholy Alliance Companion Date Night dance party. I didn’t take my monitor because there was a TV where I was staying that I could as a monitor. Well, the graphics took a little tweaking, but I got it to work… Until I returned home and tried to get SWTOR to play on my original monitor. I won’t belabor the story, but I ended up having to delete and painstakingly rebuild my entire client settings file. That took me out of the game on Monday the 16th, but I got it resolved.
Last night (Wednesday the 18th) I got taken out again -this time 10 minutes before my go-live time by my headset microphone which decided to develop a last-minute wiring issue -and that was that. So I’ll have to break out the old microphone and pop filter and do some sound balance testing before I can come back.
Anyway, that’s the scoop. You guys have a great weekend. I’ll see you again hopefully on Monday the 23rd.
May the Force be with you for now. Well at least I hope it’s with you. It’s certainly not with me!
