Okay, folks, this is an update for (the quite delayed) Episode 1 of #IsaacStorm; I have now published it on YouTube/LBRY! I'm not at all happy with how my voice came out in this, but at this point, I just needed to upload something or I'd be caught in a loop of trying to make sure everything is "perfect"! My play in this video was about average I'd say, if not slowly below, but I can always improve, just like I will with regards to finding the ideal settings in OBS as well! I'll try to improve things for subsequent episodes, but it will all take time to do, though as this is an ongoing series in the grand scheme of things, my play, and the presentation should gradually improve... or at least I hope so! Episode 2 should in theory be a bit better in terms of audio at my end... or at least I hope that to be the case.
Anyway, the link to the video is here: https://youtu.be/3BU02OMx49E
Hopefully, it won't be too unwatchable for people!

Okay folks, given the circumstances, I'm just going to - for the first two weeks - aim to get these episodes up ASAP, with 22:00 hours UK time being the earliest a video will be up; I'll make a series of posts on social media when the video is up, probably just doing a blog post and link to that everywhere, or post up the blog post in its entirety for certain other platforms (notably Hive, Steem, and Blurt) so it's a little easier to manage things. I will also embed the link into the post where possible, so it can be watched from wherever.
In any case, I'll make announcements as and when the videos are published, so expect a screwy schedule as I'm currently doing things on the fly, and will settle into a better routine as time goes on!
This post covers me making a post about the changes of plans regarding my PC upgrade; I'm now aiming to have a completely new build; instead, I'll be using my current rig (with some upgrades and the case replacement) as an interim build as it'll take time to get all the parts together!

Edit: This post is from a couple of days ago, but is being posted 2 days late on this platform; this will likely be the only major update for the next few days, so it being late won't be a huge deal, it's just that I'm a couple of days off my schedule for posting it!

Brilliant... I'm missing a month's worth of streams as I forgot to export again! Kind of funny in a way that I'm missing a month's worth of streams (between the 8th of August to the 7th of September), considering I haven't streamed in almost a month, heh. I'm gonna try to stream a "spooky stream" on the 30th or 31st of October.... or that's the plan anyway. I'm gonna keep my (and Geeked Up's and Gamed Up's) current "spooky" Twitter name until the 6th of November, as that's kind of when it ends, and then after that, those of us who aren't in North America are gonna be focused on Xmas, which I have no idea how to handle right now, so I'm playing that one by ear!
Anyway, I'm gonna try to spruce up my blogs a bit to strip out irrelevant info, as well as making things a little easier to follow elsewhere. This is gonna be done in drips and drabs, so expect things to be a bit on the slow side. As for scheduling, I need a bit of time to think about that, so leave it with me. as for the PC, I'll try to get things done hardware-wise done by the 31st, and in fact, as I have some time, I'll start things very shortly after I've caught up with everything! Either way, once that's done, I get to start doing backups to prepare for a reinstall, and then I'll get to play the likes of Runescape, Pioneer, Antstream, and other games that won't work on my current version of Linux Mint, and hopefully, I get to also do a Let's Play or stream of Pioneer, because that'd be a fun game to stream I think!
Also, I'll have a new CPU in my rig, so that means things might perform a bit better, especially once I sort out the dust! Unfortunately, there's no chance for me to get an RTX 3000 graphics card within the next few months or so, but at least it gives me time to accumulate what little interest I can get now, heh. Either way, this is the worst time to get a new graphics card, but I'll see what I can do, especially as I need to save up money to get at least a 3070, but I do need a 1660 Super just to give my setup a boost. I also get to use the new mixer I bought, which is the same as the old one essentially, except it's got Bluetooth, which could be useful for other things.
Anyway, I'm rambling now, so I'm just gonna end it here. I'll keep you all posted on what day I ultimately decide to stream, and also the new schedule, seeing as I'm no longer doing solo streams on weekends, as I need to use that time for other things. Anyway, catch you all later on!
Well, now that everything has arrived, I've set up my monitor with the 2-way VGA and 5-way HDMI switch boxes, although that took a bit longer than I was hoping! Still, everything is set up how I want, especially the bracket for my mini PC and also the HDMI cable set aside for it when I can finally use it!
Of course, my only issue now is that the VGA cable I ordered is a bit too short for attaching other devices to, but it's not as urgent to get that, so I can wait a little longer unless I have one to spare here, which I'll check out! Also, my 2.5in to 3.5in brackets arrived to, so now I can set up my SSDs in pairs, although I'm saving the stuff for my new build for a future video/stream, it will be nice to at least have them available, especially as it lets me organise things more easily!
As for current goings-on, I'm currently 50-50 as to if I'm streaming on Thursday because I've been feeling particularly drained the past couple of days; I'm chipping away at things so progress is being made with everything, but at the same time, there's still a lot I need to do overall. Still, any progress is better than none at all. As always I'll keep you all posted with regards to me streaming tomorrow, and perhaps next week, depending on if this slump continues, but if all I do this month is do a single "spooky stream" for Halloween, I'll consider that an accomplishment!
