This is my blog page; some of my ramblings will be here. Feel free to bookmark whichever page you would visit most. The most important PC tech ramblings will appear on my PC page, but there may be a more in depth story here in my blog.


June 19, '18 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 10 (week 520) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 10 is up.

This week dad's day comes and goes. I still regret how things have gone with my dad, but with him two states away I can't try to change things. And I don't know if he really cares to.

June 12, '18 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 10 (week 519) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 10 is up.

This week thanks to some donations the car insurance is again current, and for the next few months my phone can be on. But early in the week I get pretty sick, lowering my defenses against sad and fatalistic thoughts, and reminds me just how not normal my life feels.

June 6, '18 - Wednesday - rabb1t's ramblings podcast 305: ESO: Summerset; a waterpark vacation - Link
In this podcast I talk about Elder Scrolls Online's Summerset expansion. I also ramble briefly about what I'm looking forward to for E3.

Note: In checking the schedule for E3 it looks like this year is shifted a bit and most news will probably be coming out Sunday and Monday.

June 5, '18 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 10 (week 518) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 10 is up.

This week one car insurance payment is made, keeping me under one full month behind. But the very next day the June one is due and I'm now ticking away on being behind on that, not to mention all the stress and worry of the car registration in a month and a quarter. So, very briefly, I have a little bit less stress. The pre-orders for the game and with it bring surprises, as well as some pondering about an item Id been trying to get since the expansion launched.

May 29, '18 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 10 (week 517) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 10 is up.

This week comes to a close, and we are only days away from my overdue car insurance being more than a month past due. It seems like help to pay it and keep it under a month will not come in time, if at all, and I worry things will rapidly crash after that if help doesn't make it in time.

May 22, '18 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 10 (week 516) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 10 is up.

This week there is hope for fun, as my game I got on bunny day finally releases, but there is always worry about my overdue and upcoming bills, as I have no money at all for them, and gas continues to dwindle down to nothing.

May 19, '18 - Saturday - rabb1t's ramblings podcast 304: A Destiny unfulfilled - Link
In this podcast I talk about Destiny 2's second expansion; Warmind. While it may be enough for the hardcore Destiny 2 player, the small zone, the quick completion of the quest line, and the extreme grind of new quests are more likely to drive off casuals than attract them or appease the masses on issues where they feel Destiny is lacking.
May 15, '18 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 10 (week 515) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 10 is up.

This week is especially sad and worrisome as I am nearly out of gas and have no monies to pay the overdue car insurance.

May 8, '18 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 10 (week 514) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 10 is up.

This week one bill is paid, but another becomes officially overdue, and I don't know how, or when, I'll be able to pay it. Hopefully help will come in time to take care of it.

May 1, '18 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 10 (week 513) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 10 is up.

This week there is a lot of sickness and feeling out of sync with time. I suspect it is just an increasing effect of exhaustion and stress about upcoming bills.

April 28, '18 - Saturday - rabb1t's ramblings podcast 303: A murderous puzzle - Link
In this podcast I talk about a free game I got for my tablet; Friday the 13th; Killer Puzzle. And I give a bit of an overview for the newest Starfinder book; Pact Worlds.
April 24, '18 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 10 (week 512) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 10 is up.

Promises for help, both to sign up for classes, and for general life needs, from now two people I know 'in real life' have seemingly fallen through and aren't going to happen. One morning seems odd and sitting in my car feels like home.

April 17, '18 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 10 (week 511) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 10 is up.

This week a bigger donation came through, so the overdue car insurance is paid. Promise from the professor is still unmet, so at this point I will put that out of my mind, as promised money from a source that's fallen through before may fall through again. Surprise cookies bring a smile in otherwise dark days.

April 10, '18 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 10 (week 510) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 10 is up.

This week is extra sad, as the school quarter approaches and I have no money to sign up for classes, nor even just a few dollars for laundry or doing a wash. It seems things are at an all time low, and there is little I can do but try to adapt and stay hopeful that help will come in time.

April 7, '18 - Saturday - rabb1t's ramblings podcast 302: Today - Link
In this podcast I ramble about Elder Scrolls Online and Overwatch a bit.
April 3, '18 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 10 (week 509) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 10 is up.

This week there are a lot of sad feelings as the end of the quarter comes, and there are things unpaid.

March 27, '18 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 10 (week 508) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 10 is up.

This week there is a new character in my PvP game, who I love playing, and some genuinely happy times as a result. But there is a terrible scare with the laptop locking up for no reason, which quickly spirals me into thoughts of both laptop death and my own mortality, as it seems all I see around me are ticking clocks.

March 23, '18 - Friday - System recommendation updates - systems link
Intel's new socket x299 seems to have settled into the elite high-end / special use category, as the socket 1151 chipset 300 series takes over the mainstream gaming market. (As a special use item I will no longer have recommendations for them.) New systems have been done and the PC page has been updated. Unfortunately it still looks like stupid bit coin farming has jacked up the GPU prices to ridiculous levels (as well as indirectly pulling up ram prices with it), so this generation is a touch more expensive than normal.
March 20, '18 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 10 (week 507) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 10 is up.

This week there is a big donation from a friend, so things look up a bit. But I think with so many bills the money will be drained very quickly, and I'll become worried again very soon.

March 17, '18 - Saturday - rabb1t's ramblings podcast 301: rabb1t philosophizing - Link
In this podcast I ramble about how I've pretty much stopped playing Destiny 2, why I will probably stop playing Overwatch (again), how I might be interested in Warhammer: Vermintide 2, and the direction the gaming industry seems to be moving in terms of multiplayer games.

Note that while certainly good, the sound quality is not as good as it normally is. I'm still super sick so there was a lot of extra pop type noises, and I seem to have forgotten to use my popper stopper (set it aside then forgot to use it when recording). And it was raining a bit, so that may have messed with the white noise cleaning, so sorry for that.

March 13, '18 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 10 (week 506) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 10 is up.

This week there are a few positive boons, and I finally take care of that stupid fix it ticket.

March 6, '18 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 10 (week 505) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 10 is up.

This week extreme depression sets back in, as the fix it ticket was so close to being taken care of, and there is no way around being short. Added to my dwindling gas, and lack of money for other bills, it seems insurmountable. Also, there is a big scare in the night, again triggering many fears and nights thinking about death.

February 26, '18 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 10 (week 504) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 10 is up.

This week was extremely emotional. I start to get the fix it ticket taken care of, and it rapidly eats up everything I have, leaving nothing for other bills due soon. And after keeping it in my car for nearly a week, I throw away my futon, which brings up feelings of sadness that I am being forced to throw away... me.

February 24, '18 - Saturday - rabb1t's ramblings podcast 300: Deleted And Loaded Again - Link
In this podcast I ramble about how most people seem to be abandoning Destiny 2, and ramble about some other games I've lately been revisiting; Path of Exile, Diablo 3, Overwatch, and Heroes of the Storm.
February 20, '18 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 10 (week 503) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 10 is up.

This week has a lot of emotional up and down. It started low, with being out of gas and needing to consider keeping the car parked. But a few big donations come and I start to feel better. But in the end there is a great upheaval, as the ex-garage is rearranged, reminding me that the me that was and may yet still be is the only thing keeping the shattered and broken me going.

February 13, '18 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 10 (week 502) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 10 is up.

This week I can't keep worry about the bills out of my mind, and with that follow thoughts of death. I try to focus on what I do still have, and the positive things, but lately that is very difficult.

February 6, '18 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 10 (week 501) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 10 is up.

This week is extra difficult, as there is more bad news and demand for money to take care of car things. In a slight up swing the weather turns warmer, and it feels more like spring, making it easier to hope that help and better days are on the way.

February 3, '18 - Saturday - rabb1t's ramblings podcast 299: Archiving all the Aliens - Link
In this podcast I talk about a pen and paper role playing game by Paizo called Starfinder and its add on book; Alien Archive.
