Status of the Shit.

Working to get old entries from Archive,org’s Wayback machine.  Turns out all the backups i was doing turn out to be no good.  If I knew more about SQL, I wouldn’t have to dig through the archives and do this by “hand.” I started blogging in April 2000 and most of that stuff is forgettably excremental, but I’ll post it just for the contrast to the smoove mofo I am now. 😉

Wandering Skyrim

Now that I have the Special Edition version of Skyrim, I’ve been tramping around Tamriel when I could. My favorite cheat mods aren’t available anymore so I spend my fair share being hacked to death by Draugr, blown up by Wispmothers and eaten by ice trolls as I level up again. And with the new computer its looking better than ever. I’m enjoying the game like I did five years ago. 

The gameplay hasn’t changed much, but now that its a 64 bit executable its been a lot less buggy for me. My low end gamer PC runs it at high settings and its gorgeous.  Other differences: 

  • All the DLCs – Dawnguard, Hearthfire, and Dragonborn are included.
  • More visual controls – just about everything you needed an ENB mod for is there, nice graphics but not overwhelming.
  • Multiple character handling – its all built in now. 
  • PS4 and XBOX One – available for these consoles but no free upgrade like the PC folks got

Mods have been slow to transfer over, these also have to be redone as 64 bit to work with Skyrim SE, but there are some good ones out already. I’ll cover a few of my favorites later. 

Hello 2017!

A short nap before work, some clean clothes and football to start the year. 

While doing the laundry, I watched the Colts win their last game, pulling out a 4 point win over the Jaguars. Does nothing for eithers playoff hopes but at least the Colts break even for the season. Always next year… oof. 

I’m pretty sure the Steelers have the playoffs going for them but did they have to phone it in so hard against the 1 – 15 Browns that they could only pull off the win in overtime? 

Update: I felt mighty silly heading for work on my day off. Stupid…

Goodbye Christmas

Christmas is over, hoo-fricken-rah. I’m just about over these holidays. Back to work tomorrow for the few work days I got left in 2016.

Watching Travelers on Netflix, very interesting show about people from the future coming to the past to change everything. Is this why 2016 was all fucked up?
