Okay, so I've just made an official announcement that I'll no longer be updating on Ko-fi for the foreseeable future, unless there's enough requests to do so. Granted, I've hardly updated on it as of late, but I just thought I'd make it official. SubscribeStar will be the place where I exclusively do a Patreon-style things, mainly because of the scheduling ability, and it also integrates more with certain platforms! In any case, I'm trying to reduce the amount of places I need to keep up to date, although it's possible that I'll also move away from here, depending on if I can find a more suitable platform or not to work with, as scheduling is an important thing for me.

I'll need to give it some thought though, given I want to reduce the amount of work I need to do; I may even just use a WP plugin for tips and work out some other sort of subscription service for GU/PU, and also SM/DK as well, if I can find a way to feasibly combine them together in way to reduce spreading myself thin. I will probably withdraw announcing videos on SubscribeStar from the 30th IsaacStorm episode, mainly because I already announce them on other social media outlets, and I want to start reserving this page for more importand announcements and also supporter-exclusive videos or "early looks" of certain videos, but I need to do some thinking.

In any case, lightening my workload would be a good idea for a variety of reasons! I'm going to call it here though, as I need to get on with things, so see you all later on!

Some updates and future plans

Okay, so I'm going to be a bit erratic with uploading IsaacStorm videos this month, due to essentially trying to rearrange stuff to work more efficiently. I'm looking at maybe doing some unboxings of stuff I get in the post from around September, which is a couple of months away, I know, but I need time to get everything set up! Going back to the videos though, I'm going to pretty much aim for the nearest regular slot I'm able to aim for, rather than saying when or if a video will be uploaded because I don't have as much energy as I'd like to record at present, so I'll probably end up doing something a bit intermittent for this month, possibly next depending on how things go. This also means that I'm going to hold off on doing daily Isaac videos till at least February/March, whilst I work on a schedule incorporating a second game too, which I'll need to work out how I'm going to go about doing it. I'm still thinking of doing Dungeon Hack, although it's likely that I'll have to do the game without music, and just suggest that you choose your own music to play with it, as I'm realising I'll drive myself nuts if I end up trying to find the perfect music to go with the game, plus it means you have a choice of accompanying music from your end!

Anyway, expect that IsaacStorm videos will be going up, but do keep an eye on the usual outlets at around midnight on Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday; if there isn't anything up by that time, assume that this time it's been a miss! I'm giving this heads-up now in order for me to save energy up for doing future videos and schedules, plus there are only so many times I can say the same thing. At least by setting the expectations of adhering to the normally scheduled time slots in some fashion means that you have a better idea of how things are going, as eventually, I'll be back to normal posting, but right now, I just want to try to get my PC transfer/upgrades done, as well as bringing my server properly into the fold, along with my workstation, as this will help me streamline things down the line. additionally, I'll be getting a connection upgrade sometime this month, so that may result in some downtime for a short period, but I will be getting a slightly faster upload speed; in addition to the upgrade from 15 Meg to 30 Meg, I'll be getting an upgrade to 40m Meg due to a connection upgrade, as well as getting 5 additional IP addresses, which will allow me to do some interesting things down the line!

Anyway, I do hope to be getting back to my regular schedule eventually, but in the meantime, I'm going to try to aim for at least one video a week minimum, though I'm not sure if it should be on a specific day, or whatever day I can manage. I do also need to start being a little less strict with my requirements for videos too, because I can't keep on doing the haphazard approach I have been doing in the past and discarding a lot of videos, seeing as I end up spending hours on something and having nothing to show for it! I am going to aim for a minimum of 35 minutes per video, and ignore the maximum time it takes for a run or series of runs as I feel like worrying about that probably has an effect on my performance somewhat too! I do have other things planned down the line, most notably with 'Storm's Lab' and 'Storm's Workshop', but nothing I can really reveal till I've sorted out enough space for things, especially as I'm not sure myself what's going to happen with it, but I do hope to do some things with 3D printing, most notably setting up Octoprint with a mini 3D printer and setting a webcam on it to allow people to watch the print happening (in theory at least).

I do also want to start streaming me repairing/cleaning/refurbing/etc various bits of hardware too, but that might take a little while longer, as I need to work out a camera setup, as well as making sure I protect my table and can facilitate a decent streaming setup somehow as well. Anyway, I'm going to stop it here for now, as I need to go and think about what needs to be done to make things easier and more efficient for me moving forward. I do also want to pick up my copies of Savage and Railroad Tycoon II Gold Edition from storage as well, so I can put them in the Linux box. I do also have plans for my Pentium MMX project, now I can almost get a preliminary trial to build going with that, plus I want to also start sorting out storage for it and the retro laptops I have to work on eventually; I have the 4 enclosures I need now, so I can replace the HDDs with SSDs eventually, although I do want to research other upgrades such as RAM, the CPUs, and GPUs, as well as making sure I have everything I need to clean everything!

I do have many plans that are almost ready to go, but they need space to be worked on, let alone filmed, so that's something else I'll be working on too! In any case, I know that it's probably a bit disappointing to have me not release any videos after almost 2 weeks, but at least you have something consistent to work from, plus I'm going to give once a week (not this week) posting a go. In the meantime though, I'll try to keep you all updated on any major developments.

Until next time, take care and see you all later on.

I'm going to give this week a miss regarding videos; I want to try and spend the time trying to get a more organised system going with my professional setup, as to be quite honest, I need to adjust and implement a new system, and right now, it's not quite being sorted to my satisfaction, so I want to try and spend a few more days organising it, especially as I need to start clearing up a lot of files and putting them in more accessible places!

Update on PC upgrade/swap, and a couple of other things

The network enclosure that I ordered has been received, and it looks pretty much brand new... the box has seen better days though, and I don't yet have any drives, but it's a good start to my new setup. I'm going to be doing a couple of "easy" PC upgrades too, maxing out the RAM of the board, and replacing the wireless card, because if nothing else, that at least helps me achieve something along the way to upgrading the PC; the CPU replacement can happen later when I have to take the PC out of its case and swap it over. I'm delaying the swap till July, because Microsoft has an announcement regarding Windows, plus I think Linux Mint 20.2 may be out by the time I plan to perform the swapover too!

Additionally, I've ordered a bunch more spools of PLA 3D printer filament, though I'm currently unable to use it, due to my full-size 3D printer having no space, though I've gotten it at a discount, so it was best to stock up on some colours whilst it was cheap, rather than getting it when I needed it at full price! Additionally, there's a power cut in my area, though my flat currently isn't affected, but other things might be! I feel sorry for the Amazon delivery guy who I spoke to just now (who delivered my stuff) having to go all the way up the stairs to the 10th floor, as that sounds exhausting, especially in this heat!

Either way, things are gradually going to plan.

Just a quick heads-up... Ep 18 of IsaacStorm Repentance is going to be published an hour later than usual; Thursday's vid should still be on time!

Looks like this video won't be out till between 02:00-03:00 UK time, given how things are going! It will be out, but keep an eye on YouTube every so often between the above time, and maybe after to see if I've published something... otherwise it might be worth it waiting a few more hours, just to make sure that it'll definitely be up!

Anyway, I'm going to do a recording now, or it'll never get published!

Okay folks, I'm going to cancel the video for this weekend (originally Saturday's) as I'm not feeling 100% right now; I'll pick things back up from Monday, or at least I hope to anyway! In any case, I expect things to be a little bit "gappy" for the first 100 episodes, or at least the points where 100 episodes would be! I'm still hitting a decent hit rate at least, but it's really a case of getting settled into a routine for recording, which I've yet to nail properly!

So, I finally got to indulge in something quite geeky and something I wanted to do for the longest time, only it didn't work as well as I'd have hoped!

MechCommander works very nicely on my Windows 10 tablet and it has a stylus, so I can technically do stuff like what this guy is doing: https://youtu.be/QP0j2qcx1Fw?t=120

Except... I need to work out how to tweak the game interface to get it working better with a stylus (though selecting units and telling them where to go works)... although at the same time, I can't "draw" routes on the screen; it's very likely that I need a keyboard to move around the map, or find some way to make a stylus work with the interface and dragging!

Still, there's something exciting to me being able to do stuff that kinda mimics what goes on in this video... I've yet to get tired of this intro, plus the music still gives me chills, decades on!
