Stream Shenanigans

A 39-post collection

Monday, Backup Reads and No Stream

Still trying to unfuck what the hell is going on with OBS and how to fix it. So far, my internet searching skills are failing me.

I feel terrible about everything going wrong. It's out of my control and I can't do a dang thing about it... BUT I also feel dumb because it's out of my control and I can't do a dang thing about it.

Further, I still need mental health time because burnout is a bitch and the firkin GUILT from needing the mental health time is... crushing at minimum.

I have to get over myself or I'll never get better. It'll be an endless cycle of guilt and mental health recuperation that inspires more guilt and necessity for mental health recuperation.

And that's enough iteration today.

I am taking time for myself. I need me in tip top working condition or nothing will get done.

Speaking of, since I currently can't stream, I shall be making my offerings real soon now.

Sunday, Streaming Issues

Video drivers make my games work! Yay! Video drivers may also be preventing OBS from working. Boo.

Which means that, in order to stream, I need to unfuck whatever's going on with my systems. Which means there may not be a stream tomorrow.

I'm doing my best with what I've got, and what I've got is old solutions to old versions. None of which are effective so far.

I have some offerings to make and chapters to record. Not a lot for

Sunday, Stream Shenanigans and Technical Difficulties

I could not make TaleSpire go because New Linux Compatibility Issues(tm). I'm working on solution, but the frustration is flying high.

There's things I'm trying, things I can try, and the potential for time to settle all trouble. In the meantime, I'm working on substitute maps to use in OwlBear... but those take time.

Fortunately, DungeonDraft works.

It sucks that technical issues have interrupted the game, but I'm coping my best.

And that's the best I can do.

I did NOT

Monday, Bricked PC and Stream News

I currently can't run a stream today. My PC is bricked thanks to my own incompetence at doing a thing. I now must wait for Beloved to return and un-brick it because levels of technical difficulty.

I shall finish with the backup reads that are ongoing, and then get on with the important things. Feeding the cats. Creating my offerings. Trying to figure out what the flying flip I'm doing with myself for the remainder of today.

I may or may not

Sunday, Stream Shenanigans and Budget Cycles

The cats are going to need food. And kitty litter. The household is going to need a few things by this Tuesday. I have the money for that, so all is allegedly fine.

I also have the money to get my new glasses.

All I need is the time and the energy to get all those ducks in a row. Not happening today. Not happening tomorrow.

I might be able to get to that on Tuesday. Fingers crossed.

Today, we already had

Monday, Backup Reads and Stream

I'm having some issues with setting up my nonsense over on the Linux partition, so I continue using Windows for streams, and therefore the backup reads.

Hopefully, I'll unriddle things enough to use Linux full time. But that occurrance is some significant unfucking down the line.

I have to rebuild some of my tab hoards in both areas. Which is what I'm doing this morning, before the backup reads kick into gear.

EDIT: I got distracted, did the backup group, AND the

Monday, Reads and Stream

The group's reading their stories to each other, I cut my stretchies short so I could make it. Winter is making me sleep longer and Sundays do me no favours either.

Last night's difficulty sleeping was caused by me messing around and finding out in Garage Band via my iPad Pro. I got something and putting it all together is one of my goals of the day.

I got music. I got video. I just put the title and byline on my

Sunday, Tale Foundry and a VICTORY!

Because I need napnaps, I count Sunday as my "light day". All I count for a win is writing a part of A Devil's Tale for this day.

If I do anything else today, that is also a win.

I think I should work on a map for a PLN'd game sesh with the rainbow crowd. Or two. Depends on my personal impetus at the time.

Chapter Count: Just wrote the first words in chapter 359 of A Devil's Tale. Which means

Sunday, Stream Stuff and Things

I just finished the game stream, and am doing my pre-literature stretchies. Following Tale Foundry's stream, I shall get on with the daily tale.

Chapter Count: Finished Ch 352, about to commence 353. Getting closer and closer to my arbitrary limit where I believe I should wrap things up and finish up the dang STORY.

But I also have some plot to resolve in there as well, so I'm not going to rush too hard. And there's a lot of book 4

Sunday, Stream Stuff and Sleeps

I have done my stretchies, I have DM'd a session. I am about to commence my story stream. After I've done my instant fiction, I shall get some nap time in because this is pretty tiring no matter what I do.

That second cup of coffee is wearing off and I shall definitely need a napnap before posting.

Offerings shall be out in the open some time after I wake up.

Tomorrow, I brave the zombie hordes of Crimbo Shopping to get

Sunday, Streaming Nonsense

I have done my stretchies, I have run some more dungeon, and I am about to do my story stream. Once I'm done learning about this one thing I'm watching.

And when I'm done writing this blog. And have published it.

I might be able to do a little more than normal now that I'm waking up at 4AM rather than 3AM, but results may vary. Depending entirely on my ability to want to do anything.

I may yet spend today catching

Sunday, Tale Foundry and Stream

I have had some MASSIVE LAG so part of my PLNs today involve uploading the complete game stream. I might have to do the same with the story stream, too.

Depends on how behaviour the streaming goes.

I'm still awake at the moment, so I may stay awake long enough to make sure those files get there. Time, as always, will tell.

I'm currently watching the Tale Foundry and about to launch. I'll at least make a start on my thoughts for

Sunday, Tale Foundry and Proceeding

I did my DM'ing, I did my story stream, had a sleep and now I'm up to publishing. Yay.

I made a start on chapter 334 of A Devil's Tale and I might get around to finishing it. I might even get as far as writing the next one.

I doubt, but it's good to hope.

I should also get on with reviewing other Foundry entries so I have a chance to be randomly selected for the reading next week.

All of

Sunday, Streams and Stuff(tm)

We didn't have enough to play VTTRPG this morning, so Fiver and I played BG3 together. Much hilarity abounded.

The PLN today is the usual PLN for every day of the like. Do the tale, take a nap, finish up the rest of the nonsense.

I'm very much looking forward to the nap, if I must be honest.

For the rest of the day? Farting about and chilling. The cake is gone so I'm off the sugar once more. Behaving myself.

Sunday, Stream Stuff and Nonsense

I got woken up at 2AM because my PHONE was on Daylight Savings and the rest of the house was not.


There may or may not be a game tonight which makes tomorrow - a long weekend day - even more interesting than expected.

I'm helping MeMum with tech troubles, and any other shenanigans we can manage when half of anything is shut.

I'm working on side projects as the Foundry has lag goblins. Story stream real soon now.

Remaining nonsense
