so I fixed a chicken quesadilla thing for lunch, then set about hooking up the speaker set matt gave me (guess it was jared's old set he didn't want anymore?
anyway hooked that up and tweaked the settings everything sounds so much better now! can't wait to play my games and music/videos through it that's gonna be so freaking cool!!
had a taco bell griller for an afternoon snack... it was pretty good might have to get two if I want one for dinner though but it was perfect since I was already kinda full from lunch.
then I had the most interesting exchange on twitter:
I'd asked one of my recent twitter followers if he'd remembered me from a long time ago (I'd remembered his name from back in the day and given some of his posts I was pretty sure this was him)
sure enough he told me he remembered me from way back when! my earliest internet hangouts when I got my first PC and got on dialup AOL were basically split between an irc channel for a sailormoon newsgroup (where I met one of my current fb friends only other person I've known quite that long!) and another retrogaming/emulation server that talked about classic games and emulating them on your PC, this guy was from the second group.
so that was pretty cool to officially reconnect after all this time! I was hoping he'd remembered me I mean he did follow me on twitter so I was sure he'd prolly remembered me. so we reconnected a bit on twitter it was good to hear from him!
when I'd gotten into emulation stuff in the late 90s-early 00s right after I got my first PC he was in one of the first IRC channels I remember visiting! of course now he says that server's long gone, go figure. he sent me a screenshot of some IRC logs I'm guessing? a few of the names did jump out at me as people I remembered so that was definitely a blast from the past!
(I mean I do still talk to some of the people I hung out around back then but not from that specific channel, haha)
anyway other than that matt's supposed to assemble the little cart for me and maybe take a look at the headset at some point (though I'm pretty sure it's toast) so will report on that later if I hear back about it.
update: so matt delivered the cart I think he flipped the top shelf so I could set my fridge on it but still have two compartments for all my other stuff. I did hear back from bobby on my 'first VR' questions so I relayed those over on facebook since they were looking into getting into it on their new PCs so hopefully dad will let me know if he saw it and if the computer can run the stuff... I'm hoping it can especially with the videocard upgrade but we'll see!
dinner was a kfc famous bowl mom was asking me right in the middle of listing the games they should start with so I didn't wanna divert too much away from that, so I mean it's fine I haven't had it in a while.
then olr was pretaped and they entertained my president cat question I mean imagine if we owned the rights to that?! I know there are a few people out there that would love to see a re-release of that game somehow.... so yeah stay tuned.
the stream was buffering like hell though but I made it to the end being a shorter show. so anyway sitting here watching mish play more no man's sky... may go on later we'll see how I feel.
