King’s Personal Musing 4/10/13: Windows XP Enters Final Supported Year, Acapella Singer With Epic Beard and more…

Photo I took earlier today…I muse about Windows XP entering its final supported year, an epic beard singer and more…

My Life of Late…

Geez my life hasn’t been much to talk about lately. Just more school work and work and more work in general. Seems like I have even less time than I did last term which I can’t figure out. I thought I had reduced my work load but it seems like I didn’t. That just boggles my mind… *sighs* I don’t get it. I really don’t get it. But I’m hanging in there and getting what I can done, done. How about you? I hope you’re doing well.

What I’m Playing Now…

Not a whole lot. I’ve mostly been trimming up my rather bloated music library. I’ve been getting rid of songs and albums that I might have found interesting at one point but no longer want. Typically this is music I’ve gotten in previous Bundles. I’m also playing Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance a little bit here and there. Yeah, the RTS bug might be taking a hold over me once again. Which I can’t say I mind…except that RTSes have this nasty habit of sucking my time dry so I’m trying to stay casual with SupCom (bwhahaha to it staying like that).

Content I’ve Published Elsewhere…

Middle of the week of school and you expect me to work on anything but school? Hahaha…yeah…not so much. Ah well.

Gaming & Technology News To Discuss…

It’s been a really slow couple of days for tech and gaming. I think I saw the same subject repeated fifty times…Anyway, the bit of interesting news is that Windows XP will be losing official Microsoft support on April 8, 2014, less than a year from now. When that date passes, your OS will no longer receive updates. Windows XP will not be the only program losing support. Internet Explorer 6, Office 2003 and Exchange Server 2003 will also be losing support then. (Sounds like a good time for me to switch over to Open Office then). It’s not really surprising that this is happening now. Windows XP is 10+ years old and Microsoft has released three new OSes since then. I’m actually kind of surprised how generous they were supporting XP after all this time. It probably has something to do with the fact that 38% of Internet users are still using Windows XP. (Wow). My suggestion is to upgrade to Windows 7 or move to Linux at this point if you’re not willing to upgrade to Windows 8. Not that I blame anyone for not wanting to go to Windows 8, I have quite a few concerns about it…

Photos To See…

Really nice flower photo.

Nice collection of flowers here.

Well, here’s Snake on God Mode. o_O

Audio of Note…

This guy is really good at doing acapella arrangements of videogame songs. I’m impressed. Check this out. Also, his beard is rather epic and kitty is cute.

Videos To Watch…

More Easter Egg hunting is quite cool imo.

TheAuzzieGamer is back after yet another extended break with moments in Assassin’s Creed 3 multiplayer. I didn’t enjoy it as much as his usual content but was entertained nonetheless. I hope he doesn’t go on another extended break again.

I haven’t got a clue who Adam Sessler is. That said, his video on the real problem with Metacritic hits on some fine points that AAA publishers need to realize. They really need to grow up on the marketing. They need to quit using Metacritic as some sort of standard. He actually said it pretty aptly too that basically a bunch of white middle-aged reviewers were deciding the income and bonuses of developers in the gaming industry and that’s complete nonsense. Especially considering that neither the movie or music industry do that, so why should the gaming industry? Gawds does he have a point on that. Watch it for more, caution, cussing abound.

Until next time…
