There is also a sad life update, as things are going very badly and I feel very sad lately.
July 9, '19 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 12 (week 575) - Link

June 1, '19 - Saturday - rabb1t's ramblings podcast 322: Elsweyr mutant - Link
In this podcast I ramble about the newest expansion for the Elder Scrolls Online. It adds a new zone, a new class, has tons of new quests to do, new music, new lore, and very scary new world bosses; dragons.

I also give final review thoughts on Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden, which is a turn based strategy game which while one of the best games of its type, has limited replayability due to static mission areas.

May 28, '19 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 11 (week 569) - Link

The next week of Epic Fail year 11 is up.

This fail week I had a big donation, so got current on the car insurance for the moment, but I still have little to none for the upcomnig registration. A lot of sads this week, and an unknown exhaustion.

May 11, '19 - Saturday - rabb1t's ramblings podcast 321: Wings - Link
In this podcast I ramble about Pigeon Wings Strike, an 'endless runner' where you are flying along in the sky trying to pass pigeons.

I also talk a bit about how we, as gamers, should stop pre-ordering games, and need to pay very close attention to what developers say about a game, and what actually there is at launch compared to what was promised, and what there should be.

April 16, '19 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 11 (week 563) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 11 is up.

This fail week I am again ignored by my professor after telling her how desperate things are getting. Thankfully it matters a bit less, as a big donation comes and I can pay a couple of important bills and have gas for a couple more weeks. A major upheaval in my evening routine disrupts my schedule.

April 9, '19 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 11 (week 562) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 11 is up.

This fail week I am again worried about everything. I'm down to half a week of gas and no money for any of the bills rapidly coming due. Without help and donations I don't know how I'll continue.

Very minor changes and updates, but things are verified for happy bunny day builds.

The next week of Epic Fail year 11 is up.

The next week of Epic Fail year 11 is up.

March 19, '19 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 11 (week 559) - Link

March 12, '19 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 11 (week 558) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 11 is up.

This fail week I am basically out of gas and make plans to take the bus everywhere. And I feel like in doing so I will not only leave my car behind, but leave myself behind. But a little help comes in the end, and for the moment I am safe again and I continue for another week.

March 9, '19 - Saturday - rabb1t's ramblings podcast 318: Stronger together - Link
In this podcast I ramble about Anthem. I discuss what I like about it, and talk a little bit about why I get why some reviewers are being overly critical.
March 5, '19 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 11 (week 557) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 11 is up.

This fail week I run shorter and shorter on gas, and without being able to keep up with just $7-8 in gas a week, I feel more and more lost and depressed about how the upcoming necessary bills will be paid.

February 26, '19 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 11 (week 556) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 11 is up.

This fail week I finally get to play my pre-ordered birthday present. A new bill comes, and with it the realization several hit me in the next few months, and I will need unprecedented amounts of help to cover them.

February 19, '19 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 11 (week 555) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 11 is up.

This fail week the cold must be on a deeper level, as I'm exhausted nearly all the time. Extreme depression hits, and I lose almost all interest in playing. But the wait for my pre-ordered birthday game is nearly over, so I prepare for that with a pre-load.

February 15, '19 - Saturday - rabb1t's ramblings podcast 317: Battle Royale with Cheese - Link

February 5, '19 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 11 (week 553) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 11 is up.

This fail week I have a pretty bad cold, with coughing, sneezing, congestion, and pretty bad ear blockage and a bit of dizziness. With the close of January the last of my possible paid survey windows close, along with the time being out on my phone, prospects for the future seem very few.

January 29, '19 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 11 (week 552) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 11 is up.

A scare with the laptop battery last week seems ok. A scare with the car engine this week seems ok. Fun times, but extremely low frame rates with my pre-ordered birthday game. A boon for gas for a few weeks.

January 26, '19 - Saturday - rabb1t's ramblings podcast 316: Rambly update - Link
In this podcast I ramble about playing in the Anthem test this weekend, finally 'getting' how to Path of Exile, and that's about it.
January 22, '19 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 11 (week 551) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 11 is up.

A storm comes through the area. A big donation hopefully re-secures my birthday game pre-order and a month's car insurance, but there is nothing left for gas, which is almost completely out. Early February food stamp money is followed by the news warning to be ready to not get a payment in March, putting my ability to eat seriously in question.

January 15, '19 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 11 (week 550) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 11 is up.

This week there are too many sads, and too much stress. I have several days where I have migraine level headaches. I fear I won't be able to keep my pre-ordered birthday game, nor keep up with upcoming bills. If paid surveys don't pan out, and help doesn't come, I don't know what I'll do.

January 8, '19 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 11 (week 549) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 11 is up.

January 5, '19 - Saturday - rabb1t's ramblings podcast 315: Rambly new year - Link
In this podcast I ramble about my new wireless headphones, both for gaming and my tablet, and random thoughts on what I am, and am not, playing these days.

The next week of Epic Fail year 11 is up.
