Alright, I have to admit something. I’ve been slacking off, quite majorly, especially in the pod cast department. I had a very good chance to record the Road To Rage Episode last week, as a quite horiffic battle took place between my friend and I and two other players, who not only seamed to have an unlimited supply of health, but also some wickedly awesome guns, some of which were capable of putting someone down in 3 quick shots. All of that resulted in a 15 minute streak of epicly loud gun fire, frustrated screams of agony over the chat system, and people dieing left and right. Although my ratio of kills to deaths was something along the lines of 2 to 6, I still had quite a good time and wish I’d recorded it. I suppose one of the main reasons I didn’t record it was that I was on a time crunch, and it can take a good minute after a podcast is recorded before I can officially say it’s online, and also that was on Wednesday, not Sunday.
But anyways, I’ll be sure to definitely record it this time, even if it means recording it before Sunday and waiting until then to post it. Either way, expect podcast Episode 25 this Sunday, and I promise, for real this time, not to let you down.
Besides slacking off the pod casts, I’ve done quite a bit of swamping over the past two weeks. I haven’t updated you guys on my swamp progress in a while, so I suppose I’ll do that now
-I’m level 84 now. If I’d become level 84 in a previous version of the game, such as 3.1 or below, I could’ve become a hard core character, something I’ve been wanting to try out. But no, I have to get to level 150… so I still have quite a few more levels to go. On the bright side, I’m over half way!
-Since Christmas day, I’ve spent 1 week, 1 day, and about 2 hours, playing the game. All that, plus the time I played on my old computer, and I’m still not even level 100 yet?
-I have some pretty nifty armor at the moment. I’m still able to move fast, but get >70% protection.
Also, I have a long bow, and a very powerful machine gun, so I shouldn’t be dieing any time soon. I suppose that’s something to be excited about.
Anyway, off the topic of gaming, my last couple weeks have been more or less uneventful, besides school, doing a bit of technical work with my friend’s website, and as previously mentioned, playing games. Very early this morning, I managed to catch a rather epic storm recording, the result of a pretty good hail storm that came through, dumping a whole bunch of what appears to be nickle to quarter sized hail. (yeah, leave it up to Severe Storm Steve to get up at 4:00 in the morning to record a thunderstorm). Anyhow, here’s the recording:
download and listen on your pc
or here’s the imbedded player:
To me, that sounds a lot like the ice storm I recorded back in December of last year.
Moving on to the future, I have a choir concert next week. Apparently we have to wear a tuxedo, and I still don’t have one. I really need to get on that though, because I’m not going to get a poor grade because I wasn’t in propper clothes.. Also, report cards are coming out this week. I feel confident that I’ve passed all my classes–last time I checked, I had a 92 in algebra, a 98 in business information management, and I don’t know what the exact grade is, but I’m passing English. As for History and Spanish, I really have no reason to be failing those classes, so I’m pretty sure I’m passing them.
Well, it’s kind of late, so I should be getting in bed right about now. I hope you enjoyed this post, and I look forward to writing another. Also, stay in tune for the podcast next Sunday.
Thanks for reading,
Type you later,
