Whoops, I kind of forgot I was going to update this thing. In that case, this will be a "jkefka's been off his meds for three days" ADD Extrrrravaganza post!
I haven't had a chance to take more than a day or two off my meds in a while, it's a good thing to do now and again. I wouldn't have taken three days except that deliciouschaos
damn near had to sit on me to ensure that I would not simply spend my three-day-weekend working, and I began to think that when someone who's got the capacity to be even more of a workaholic tells you to stop working...well she might be on to something.
I've been very busy working on some projects for work and other projects for a professor from my undergrad who has me do some excel wizardry for her at regular intervals. Also staring into the abyss that is grad school and dealing with all the paperwork for same.
We got some pimp-ass bean-bag chairs (two of these things
, in red and black) and have turned out living room into the ultimate gaming paradise we've always dreamed of. There are some pictures that aren't on my computer that may be posted later. Right now as I type this deliciouschaos
is in process of breaking Disgaea over her knee like a dry twig. It may technically be my game she's playing, and my save file, but this particular brand of pure ridiculousness is her trademark.
EVE nearly imploded altogether and then didn't. The company that makes it has a capacity for poor communication that is beyond belief. Combine that with the introduction of vanity microtransactions and some anonymous dissatisfied employee within the company releasing a few memos that looked really
bad out of context and you had a marvelous shitstorm that had a solid 10% of the player base cancelling their accounts in protest, followed by a week of frenzied damage control, and finally coming out with the very, very brief statement that could have fixed the whole mess when it started. "No microtransactions for in-game advantage, and no plans to introduce them." It took them over a week
to figure out that's all the player base wanted to hear. If they didn't have the elected player representatives that act as "stakeholders" in development decisions that they flew to iceland
on short notice to hash this out, they would still be up shit creek without a paddle. It's really quite mind-boggling.
Listening to Portal 2 soundtrack vol. 2. I'm very behind the times but I am constantly impressed by this soundtrack.
Oh, it's patriotism day, isn't it. I'm kind of glad I've spent the entire day indoors playing video games.
I think that's as far as my attention span can put up with this "writing" thing right now. Also, I made a delicious dinner off of one of my dad's recipes. The process of taking a few simple ingredients and producing delicious food is always kind of amazing to me, even though I've been cooking for years.
