Personal Musing: 6/29/12…

Sweat, work, work, sweat. What a day.

Ergh, moving is such a pain in the ass. You never really realize how much stuff you have to move until you have to move the actual stuff. And now I’m thinking about the help I’m doing for moving my Uncle next week. Hmm, I could have planned this out better me thinks…*shrug*. So basically I’m looking at an empty room with boxes and the major thing left is my computer. Once I publish this PM, I’ll be packing it up too. This day went as well as I expected as far as getting things done. So that’s fairly satisfying all things concerned. I also thought it would rain on me walking home, but I lucked out and it was sunny. So yeah, lots of packing. I’m also listening to the Dresden Files again on my iPhone via audiobooks because I ran out of podcasts to listen to. I’ve been itching to relisten to this series of books for a while now, as the next book is expected to come out in a few months and its a fairly major one by all guesses. So yeah, that’s my day in a nutshell.

No work done on the Let’s Plays. I had a lot more to do for packing than I originally thought.

I also played a bit with my friend MoonshineFox in Tribes Ascend. I was kinda ok on how well I was doing. I did get my first quatra-kill and that was great. Basically, got two fractal grenades via my Brute onto the enemy flag stand and watched as the defenders died. Ehehehehehehe. I also did better than MoonshineFox in that game (points wise), which is a first for me so yay! 🙂 What can I say, I’ll take the victories I can get.

Social Photo Feature:

So apparently both Instagram and Flipboard crashed tonight. Due to this, I couldn’t catch up on tech/gaming news, my RSS was a bit dry today for anything interesting and to make it a bit more interesting, I can’t really feature anyone’s Instagrams, because the API is completely crashed along with it. I half expected WordPress to go down too lol. So…I’m featuring mine, not out of ego, but simply because its the only photo I saved today and I think it looks awesome. I usually do all the tech/gaming stuff catchup before I write these PMs along with reviewing everyone’s Instagrams in one shot. So I don’t normally save anyone’s photos during the day.

Really great looking Sky

So I was trying to get a Lens Flare off this tree on my walk. However, I just couldn’t get the lens flare right so instead just took a general shot of the sky. I took a quick look at it and thought it looked good enough to post and continued to walk. It wasn’t until I got home that I saw how good it looked. Sometimes, I just get lucky. I like the deep blue of the bottom part of the sky combined with the sun at the top. 

Nathan edited this photo

So when I got home, my friend Nathan had commented on how great it looked and then showed me his edit of the photo, complete with a few inserted lens flare. So I had to share here. Click on the photo to go to the original Flickr site. Thanks Nathan! 🙂

Video Feature:

TotalBiscuit’s Review of “Retrovirus” reminded me of some of the adventures me, Ceras and MoonshineFox had in Descent a long while back, as the game flies and acts the same. It’ll be interesting to see what Retrovirus looks like once its out of its Alpha state, but its got a solid start so far!

So until next time, with less crashing apps…
