      I'm so ronery...

      6 days ago

      A member of our department left the company last week, leaving us 2 men down of a 5 man team. We have to have 2 people work 6 - 14:30, and 1 work 13:30 to 22:00.

      The latter for this week has been me, and for most of my day I'm in a glass cubicle listening to our sales, not interacting with other people outside of the occasional trip to the coffee machine, or when someone pokes their head in to see how everything's going. The rest of my working day is spent out in the open plan office, manning our Helpdesk and other monitoring systems. This change happens at about 17:30, just when everyone is leaving the office.

      So it's only Wednesday, and the person I've had the most contact with this week has been my one year old son, who's vocabulary at the moment is just "dada", "(c)atch", "(s)poon" and "(d)og". The letters in brackets are the ones he misses. He also spends a good hour of our time together asleep.

      So yeah, needless to say...

      PSA: Elgato HD60 on Sale tomorrow!

      3 weeks ago

      Hello everyone,

      Just a quick heads up that the super fantastic Elgato HD60 capture device will be in Amazon UK's Prime Day sale tomorrow for £100, £35 cheaper than current retail price.
      I plan on trying to pick one up myself, as I know first hand how fantastic these devices are. You'll need to be an Amazon Prime member, but you can always start a 30 day trial.

      Now, so that this journal isn't just a little sales pitch, all comments should be GIFs.

      Happy B-Day!

      And of course, by that I mean Bungie Day! Without whom, this site, the content and the community may never have existed.

      I am of course going to be playing some Destiny to celebrate (free stuff inbound apparently) but make sure you spend some time today honouring our favourite developer!

      Artists, ASSEMBLE!

      1 month ago

      Going to start by saying, if someone could point me to a thread that serves the purpose of requesting an artist's help, that'd be swell!

      TudorVII4f00cfbbebc40.jpg

      Okay, so you know that completely ripped off Avengers logo I've been using for over 3 years? I'm still super proud of it, but the resolution I have it at is fucking terrible. What's more terrible, is my graphic design skills. So I'm asking if any artists that are currently taking commissions wouldn't mind sprucing it up with a cleaner, higher resolution version. Of course, if anyone is offering to do it for free, you'll have my eternal gratitude, but I honestly don't mind proving funds in return!

      What's my plan for the new logo? Well, nothing specific besides updating my avatars. But the logo has become my online brand, and I want to make sure it looks top if I ever want to use it for Twitch, YouTube, Twitter backgrounds etc.
      That said, once I've got the logo updated, I may be calling out for animators to create an intro slate for future YouTube vids.

      Friends, please share this with any artists you know, and remind yourself of just how awesome you are!

      Destiny

      1 month ago

      In the last week my Xbox has seen more action than it has in at least 6 months.
      Although GTA V and Halo: MCC still have hours, upon hours worth of story, sidequests and mutliplayer left in them, I've found myself once again drawn to Destiny.

      What the Hell is it about this game that makes the same missions so enjoyable to replay, over and over!?

      I've played the same lvl 26 Strikes so much in the past week, that I'm now thinking I could just solo them completely. Case in point!
      My Warlock's finally gotten some new Exotic chest armour, pushing him to Light lvl 27, I've started my Titan character as well for variety and I'm even considering getting the Taken King special edition of the game to get all of the DLC in one go!

      God damnit, Bungie! You definitely crafted something special here.

      Ohana means family...

      1 month ago

      I know I don't say this enough, or maybe I say it too much, I honestly don't know.


      Where was I going with this? Late shifts honestly fuck me over...

      OH, right! You guys, all of you guys, are my extended family. A community of people I feel safe around and can confide in if needed. That said, this is a super happy journal, not because I'm going to be promising I'm going to be posting here more and getting more involved, the past year has indicated that I just can not make those promises.

      And that's all because of another member of my immediate family. Yup, my boy turns one year old in two days! So to celebrate, I'm taking him on his first holiday, I'm honestly pretty excited.

      So yeah, see you guys in a week.

      Love you all! smiley12.gif

      Expos... Still a n00b

      2 months ago

      First the first time since my first expo, I went to the May MCM Expo last weekend. I've been to a fair few now, but despite my 'wealth' of knowledge, I completely forget to do a few things, which I'm now gutted at after this one...

      smiley9.gif Buy comics!! - Seriously, I even made a point of this before I went in, didn't pick up a damn thing.
      smiley9.gif Take photos - I went to the RT Meetup and took one of the RWBY cosplay group.... that was it!
      smiley9.gif Cosplay - I've been saying for ages now I want to get involved with this. Mostly Marvel characters but now I'm deciding to branch out.
      smiley9.gif Do my own thing - Whenever I go with a group of friends, I always end up just following along with them. This meant that I left the RT meetup pretty early because my friends decided that was the time they needed to go back to my car!

      The worst thing though, not taking painkillers! A headache pretty much ruined the afternoon for me.
      I plan to rectify this for October's MCM Expo.

      Other than that, how are you guys? It's been too long.

        Sure, I have a pretty hectic schedule though and a timezone that doesn't cater to most people's recording times.
