Podcast fixed, first official audio game tutorial released, and life update


Hey you guys,
Steve again.

As you probably know, I released my first podcast Sunday night. Unfortunately, only users of windows can open ZIP folders, plus the one with the podcast was corrupt or invalid. Thus, I have uploaded the mp3 file on the podcasts page, and included the show notes at the bottom of the podcast description. Now, you can either download the mp3 file, or listen to it in the imbedded player on the site. Now how cool is that?
Also, I have released my first audio game tutorial. It’s about 15 minutes long, and is completely detailed and gets to all the main points. You can obtain your copy by downloading the tutorial, or listen to it in its little web player at the audio game reviews and demoes page

Now, let me tell you about my life the passed few days.
On Saturday, my mom had a gladiator run, and she had to run and army craw through a whole bunch of mud. I still think she did great, though she was a muddy drenched bundle of joy after the race. After that run, we had the rize adventure thingy which wasn’t as fun as I thought it would be, because we only were there for about an hour.
Though sunday was just a relaxed chill mothers’ day (my mom enjoyed it), Monday was back to school. It was normal (school, spin class, and homework), and so was today. I’m still glad about the podcast thing, and that I released the first river raders tutorial (based on my research).

So, hope you enjoy the audio I posted, and have a great day!

Thanks for reading,

steve.

Blognews and update


Hey you guys,
Steve again.

I have some important stuff to talk about in today’s post. There is some good news, and bad news.

First, the good news. I am going to be releasing this week’s adition of the steven D Podcast on Sunday (I thought it more reasonable to start the week with a new thing). This podcast will feature a talk about what’s to come on the blog, along with a preview of stranded part 1, the game of the day (bop it in this case), and a short quick update.
So, let me tell you how the podcast will always go.
Introduction, up coming and/or breaking news, game of the day, short blog update snippet, and then closing. SAlso, there will be a form to rate and comment on the podcast. The podcast recordings will be posted on the my podcast page, so check there every week for a new podcast. The podcast will be put in a zip archive so that I can also package them with the show notes file, which will include info concerning the game of the day, along with links mencioned in the podcast and also they might elaborate on the stuff mencioned.

Next, I have pushed the stranded part 2 release further back. Now, I have an actual date, so at least we can be happy about that. My date of release on this game is June 3, 2013 which happens to be a bit less than a month away. I will get the gamebook posted, andlink to it on the site. I can’t wait!

Now, last but not least, let me tell you about my life.
Life has been pretty good the last week. On Monday, me, my mom, and even my sister went to spin class. This was a first because usually on Monday nights my sister is studying for her AP test, but since it was her staar test day this did not occur. On Tuesday, I got caught outside in a little rainstorm In second period. Nothing really interested happened besides that on Tuesday.
Wednesday didn’t have much to offer either. It was quite boring as well.
Yesterday was a rainy warm day. Though it might’ve seemed to me that it would be cold, it was warm. All I can say however is that the weather made me fall asleep shortly after I got home.
Today is Friday. I love it when it is Friday, because I know that all I have to do is make it through one more day of school before the weekend arrives. This weekend I will be going to a Rize adventures (some company for people with disabilities) beginning of summer bash. Since I don’t know how it will turn out, I will blog Saturday night (or talk about it in the podcast on Sunday), and hopefully include pictures.
Other then that, I really don’t have much to say except that I am optimistic about the weekend ahead, and ready for school to be over. As of today, there are 27 days until June 6, the last day of school.

bop it audio recording


Hey you guys,
Steve again.

I recently downloaded a bop it game for my computer that you have to press the keys on your keyboard to perform the actions. In this game, I’m doing strong and good, until a tragic accidental press of the mute button causes things to spiral out of control, ending the game. Please listen to find out the score, and I’m sure you will be filled with anticipation of the tragic moment.
This recording is about four megs to download, or of course you could use the player below. It’s only about 2-4 minutes.
here’s the audio player:

Yet Another Long Exciting Blog update


Hey you guys,
steve here.

So, here is another blog update. Unlike the last one, this one isn’t full of super exciting news and milestones, but I do have to welcome the most recent two followers and show appreciation to those who read and liked the last post.
Now, without further welcoming statements and stuff, let’s cut to the chase.

So, I’ve had a pretty decent weekend in my opinion. Yesterday wasn’t all that bad. Me and my mom walked 2.4 miles at white rock at around 5 or six last night, I got a replacement charger for my home laptop, and a brand new watch battery for the watch that’s been dead for the passed month. Today was a day of cleaning, relaxing, and computer games. I got 3 new computer games today (a slide puzzle, a strategy board game kind of thing, and a zombie appocolyps game). In fact, I might have to post a blog review of that game soon, complete with narration from my awesome charming voice, and epic zombie smashing sounds as I fight my way through my own back yard, the toun, and even a grave yard. I hope to get that posted soon. Well, all I can say is that all the games are epic, and I couldn’t stop playing them at all.

Well, back to what’s been going on with me (or should I say what wil be the case tomorrow), is that I don’t want to go to school. I mean what is it with weekends that they have to go by so fast? Why can’t we have 2 days of school and 5 of weekend?
Well, I guess I’d better stop all the complaining. I only have a month of this boring crap anyway; isn’t that enough motivation to keep my spearits up? I guess so.

So, I also have to say I got a 100 on my tech presentation on Friday. This is the 3rd hundred I’ve gotten in a row. Best of all, me and my partner didn’t start working on the tech website until Wednesday, and had the presentation done by Friday. The best part about presentation days in tech is that I normally get to doze and close my eyes–that and the times we are reading the giver and pe class are the only times I do that.
Well, I guess maybe not so much when we are reading. I start to, but realize that there is going to be quizzes and stuff on what we read, so I think that may not be such a good idea.

Other then that, I don’t have much more to say but:

Posted in information, intresting, journal, weather for today

news


Hey you guys,
Steve again.

Cold temps, milestones, broken records… wait, woe!!!

Yep, that is exactly how I’ve felt since the last blog post which occurred just short of 36 hours ago. Every since then, wave after wave of jaw dropping news has slammed into me. I better post the latest developments to you.

First of all, I reached another milestone yesterday morning at 9:37 AM, when the 50th follower joined the blog. Thanks 50th follower, because you’ve helped me hit a very important milestone in this blog!
So, now that we have the blog milestone taken care of, I will now talk about the weather.

The weather has been taking mad dips, twists, jumps, and bumps for the last 2 months. It is like we are riding a never ending wild roller coaster, one that leaves you wondering, “What’s next?”
It almost seems one day you are breaking out the hot coco and turning on the heater, while on the next you almost want to take a swim! I still have a feeling that a tornado outbreak is immenent, and tonight only further proves my theory.
Late tonight, a strong coldfront will move into our area, bringing tempratures from the 70’s before midnight to upper 40’s and lower 50’s by sunrise. After the coldfront moves through, scattered light rain, strong winds, and cloudy skies will take over our Thursday; and tempuratures will struggle to make it to 50 all day long!

Not only that, but Thursday night is the more interesting part. Winds will die down, skies will clear, and temperatures will drop into the upper 30’s early Friday morning. This is going to be the coldest it has ever been this late in the spring!!! Yes, you read right, the coldest ever this late in the season!
After that, highs will hit 60 Friday afternoon, which is still 20 degrees short of the average for this time of year, which happens to be 80.

As far as my comments go, I almost wonder if we are going to swim this summer, or ice scate. When will this weather go away? And, why is winter so hesitant on leaving?

Well, as far as life goes, not much has happened. We are doing a research project in social studies, and I got Michael Dell, the creator of the Dell computer. Of course, that does make me pretty happy; it adds some enjoyment to the research project.

As far as blog news goes, you should probably check the latest site news and updates page, because there are new developments and anouncements you must read.
Otherwise, have a great evening, and enjoy the rest of your week!
