I’ve taken to blogging some again. And what perfect timing. I completely put my huge foot right into my mouth/ass again today. I said something completely out of line for the second time in less that ten days.I didn’t mean it and I was so pissed at myself I came off as an even bigger ass. I hate hurting others, I don’t mean to. I was physically sick this week knowing how badly I had screwed up earlier and finally today, it was getting better. Now I sit here in the dark, feeling sick to my stomach, and a heavy ache in my heart.

I wish I had never hurt, could hurt or be hurt..

Rebuilding a better PC

You may ask yourself, who would spend the money on a used motherboard, for a cpu five years after the fact? Are you crazy?? And I would counter by saying that in the upgrade cycle you often look for the best bang for the buck.  That means that normally it looks like this.  Ram, video card, video card, new pc. However, since I opted to get an unlocked K processor I always had the option of over clocking it. The time has finally come. So with this rig, my upgrade path can look like this, ram, video card, cpu, video card, new rig. 

I’m hoping that for around $120 dollars I can get around a 20% increase in performance by taking my cpu from 3.3Ghz with a 3.6Ghz boost to a 4.3 to 4.5Ghz. This over clock should also benefit my 7950 and allow it to get some more frames as well before later this year updating that to a 1060.

So how does one find a reliable motherboard from five years ago?  EBay of course.. So at the moment the search is on for a Z77 based board with a good history of overclockng and a good archive of users who have successfully overclocked.

In the next update we will go over the motherboards ice been looking at and hopefully talk about the one I’ve actually purchased.

Day two has been just as great as day one. Touching on player relations, game design and machine learning in video games.


My time here is almost over,but I already can’t wait until next year. Best quote of the day. “Everyone thinks their are a game designer”.

See you next year AGC when we hopefully bring some fraud to this party.

Understand, in my heart I see you as the life that flows through it. Rhythm of beat, I hear nothing in my ears but ours thumping together. 

My eyes only see you, bright and like a star in the sky. Like the sun warming my face I take in all that is around us. 

Our breath intermixed, love in and love out. Filling my lungs with your soul and greatness. 

I close my eyes and draw on the after image so I’m not burned by your brilliance.
