Personal Blog For September 2018!

Had no intention on posting my monthly personal post a few days late, but computer issues cropped up in the past week that had me wanna push this off my desk, so let us begin there.

Gaming PC 1

 

Lately on boot up, my gaming/workhorse PC above gets past the windows screen & locks up before getting to the windows login screen, forcing me to flip the switch on the PSU. After I do, it boots fine. If it asks to restart after a driver update, it won’t freeze, but shut the thing down for the night and boom, the computer will lockup on boot the next day! I’ve scanned for any malware/virus that could be causing this, coming up empty so it might be windows ten, but Wednesday the issue got to me.

When it froze Wednesday, my usual step was taken, only a CMOS prompt showed up then would go no further. This went on, having me go into the bios and try everything with zero luck, depressing me. No really, I know hate is a strong word, but I’m getting to where I hate screwing with this thing! Late that night, going into the bios again was retried, and finding that the boot sequence was screwy, so on a guess, I switched and saved the change. It booted to windows, thank the gods.

Last night, Microsuck updated 10, (an update that took half the goddamn night and finally reinstalled windows at 4am)! Windows 10 hasn’t been loved by me since they forced the second major update, a update that makes my tower restart without warning!! Next month is going to be spent shopping for computer parts to overhaul this thing, and if I run across windows 7, I’m going to go back to it!

 

F150 Raptor Stampede 2017

In other news, it has been raining a lot and when it hasn’t, the lawn looks like a freaking jungle, so running Baby has not been a good idea. The last few runs, the R/C ran like a champ! I wanna get up to the hobby shop before the Fall temps and grab another battery pack! πŸ™‚

Finally: Some good anime related topics will be put up for discussion, one in a day or so.

He’s Back To Rule The Yard!!!!

F150 Raptor Stampede 2017

 

It took half the running season to get the issue with baby resolved, but as of last Friday, the R/C truck is FINALLY up & running the way he should be! πŸ™‚ I’ve spent all weekend out driving him, (my truck is my baby, hence the name) & boy it felt nice! ^_^ The receiver and battery pack was replaced an told Ken, (the lazy guy who half asses jobs) to just switch the receiver, even though he still maintained that it was the battery pack.

What, since I have Cerebral Palsy I dunno anything or can approve preventative measures? As a topping on cake, I had him test the truck in front of me, because like he and Cameron heard me say, I don’t like getting it home and it screws up, making me rebook a trip to come back there. What he told me, β€œI took it home before he got to it last time.” made no sense what so ever since he said it was done! I’ve said it before that Ken should be fired and that statement proves the point.

Anyway, the truck is home, fully running and as a proud β€œfather”, I’m loving the outdoors time, running the R/C!

Early Personal Post For Aug. 2018.

If there is a LOT of cursing in this post, please forgive it, I haven’t had a good month…. This summer has not been one to write about, if that can be put mildly, but let us start this early August personal post with baby, my R/C below. After two trips to the hobby shop, the guy I don’t trust to work on my things swears to me the battery is bad, that’s why the truck cuts out every second. However, if I run it with the shell off, it runs semi fine, with only two or three cut out sessions. BUT, body on, I can’t get two inches unto it cuts out, ticking like a bomb.

Now, I spoke to Cameron, the worker I trust up there last week and explained what the FUCK it was doing and he said the receiver might be the cause, not the battery pack. This is more likely the case than what Ken told me. Honestly, Ken’s rude to me, telling me that he cannot fix it over the phone last time I talked to him weeks ago. The guy should get fucking canned, if I need to be truthful! So a trip was booked with Your Ride for this Friday to go back to the hobby shop & HOPEFULLY the issue will get resolved!!!

Home life:

On top of the truck issue getting me down my home life added to the black cloud over me. How you might be asking? Well, seems my shithead of a nephew, who’s in charge of my care can’t be bothered bathing me! No, he’d rather talk to his Face Book little girlie, the one who has six other guys she’s dating than do his job! Damn tempted to fire his ass and move out, he’ll be up shit’s creek cause I pay all the bills round here! Let the bitch with the cry baby kid support him!

Writing:

During the past several weeks, I didn’t do much writing, due to the above issues. Saturday and yesterday however, the bug got me, having me complete a fan based story. It’ll be up on my other blog this week, & a link to that blog will be in my WordPress profile if any of you are interested! πŸ™‚ I will be putting older original works up there, as well, but they aren’t up to the level I’m at today, so be kind? ^_^

Mini Update

Sorry for not posting anything in a while, but been busy, not willing to do much & hermitting. By the time you readers read this, (I HOPE) the new wheelchair’s under my butt, so here is news about that! Two Thursdays ago, it was shipped from California due here two days ago & it was in my state, being assembled Friday. I called Greg, the guy I went through to get it to see where it was and what stage it was, hearing it was due to be delivered tomorrow, (Monday).

If true, you have no idea how happy I’ll be when it comes. πŸ™‚ After eight or something years, my ass won’t know how to act, it’ll feel so cool! New wheels will be soooooooo good & I’m not sure how to break it in, but me think after getting it, I’ll start going places, like the hobby shop etc. cabin fever man!

 

F150 Raptor Stampede 2017

 

Anyway, this week will be warm with sun out some days, so I’m taking my Stampede, aka baby out & driving it, which I can’t wait! πŸ™‚ In more R/C news, my new truck is here, the think is sweet as sin! Look below for pictures.

As you see, it is built like a tank, but some additions had to be done! Plug extensions were added, I cut the body where power switch is so my finger can get to it. I do need two battery packs for it, which will be bought next week or after the third, but can’t wait! πŸ™‚

With The Weather Change!

F150 Raptor Stampede 2017

 

With the weather warming over the coming weeks, and hopefully evening out quickly, my mind is shifting to running my R/C trucks, like baby above. I had the truck taken in to get cleaned, have any work that needs doing done and whatever tightened up so that when it is time, I can run free without worry of breakages! πŸ™‚ This time of year always gets a smile out of me because cabin fever can be shaken off, which given the past few months, I NEED!!!!!

Also the NEW truck has been paid for so it is MINE, MINE ALL MINE! πŸ™‚ Like I stated in another post, the truck will stay bone stock, no plan is in my head to upgrade a thing.

Below is a video of my Stampede (aka baby) running from two years ago? πŸ™‚

Personal Blog For May 2017

New month, time to clean out my head, so let me get into it, but at the end a cherry will top this off & I’d like to share it with ya.

To kick this off, I’ve been adopting new techniques of writing dialogue into my stories for three days and like it. In fact the next story I post has some of the new element in, so look out! πŸ™‚ However, and this may sound lame, but it isn’t easy to merge old and new, having em look like they work ya know? That said, I am adapting to change.

 

In other news, some of you knowΒ  one of my R/C trucks was stolen last week when I was out with it and though I’ve come to terms, this made me think about not taking my Stampede out anymore. Oh, it might be worry making me think that I know that, but it’s there. In a week, it may fade, not sure, for now though… The hobby isn’t dead in me, not by any means, I’ve decided to get the e maxx’s replacement, (a much cheaper in price truck), cause when I DO go mack out, I don’t see risking another $500+ R/C to be a target.

On the Elfien Lied front, I’m still trying to guess why my computer’s viewing software wants to play random episodes and not the disc in order. Its in a mode I’m sure, just need to sit down to figure it out. In any case, weather I figure it out or not, the series will be rewatched this weekend and a review will be up the following week! πŸ™‚

 

Lastly,Β  computer news and the cherry I promised. Another gamepad I bought a year ago has developed a short in the wire. I’ve taken care of it, but it might just be wear and normal use doing it, so my plan? Order two Wednesday and if one starts shorting, I’ll have a backup. Good plan? Would go with Logitech’s wireless pad, but heard that fails to connect on install. There’s a patch I COULD download, but if it won’t work, the gamepad will be a paperweight.

 

Okay, now the cherry. Since moving back to PC gaming from consoles, me moods have been better, added a few more friends on my steam list and even posted in forums there. And for the most part, I keep my head down, I’ve been cool when helping people etc. However one post had me almost lose my cool, but I managed to reply in a decent & somewhat funny way. while giving fact.

 

This user kept posting, whining that Tekken 7’s playerbase on PC will stink without crossplay and he/she isn’t too sure about buying it on steam. Well after the eighth post, I had enough and said my piece, which their post with my reply is below, let me know what you guys think.

The lack of crossplay really makes me think about not putting the money towards the PC version. I am interessted in playing ranked tekken online and if the PC versions community is small, then where’s the point? All the good players will be over at the PS4. For serious players the PC version seems to be a really poor deal at the moment.

Crossplay crossplay crossplay, I’m sure everyone agrees with me when I say we are tired of you beating a dead horse! If you THINK the PC playerbase is gonna be small, well it is your opinion, an incorrect one, but whatever. We however have a group to play the game, and I’m sure people will be coming once the game unlocks in 4 weeks. If your not gonna buy tekken for PC, DON’T BUY IT! Moaning about it not having crossplay only makes you look like you are, a whiny lil fool!

Drove My R/C Trucks Yesterday

Well the weather stopped being stupid long enough yesterday to allow me to go running for the first time this season. Aside from the E-MAXX, (picture below) having a set of weak packs and it almost made me fall off the darn porch, it was fun being outdoors again.

After getting in, some daylight was left, so I charged my 2WD Stampede, A.K.A Baby & headed back out! πŸ™‚ It must be known that being caught up in the new truck, the power and speed it has, because as the truck took off, the kid in me LOVED it! Even on a three year old battery pack, this little puppy has some pep, so much that a stone hit my eye lol. Sure not regretting having a brushless system put in last season, tell ya that much!

This weekend it might be nice, so both trucks might be run, but the Stampede will for sure! I love that little pitbull of a truck. πŸ™‚
