The intresting and exciting recent happenings of Steven D: tech discoveries, new projects, and junk food


Hey guys,
Steve here.

A lot has happened since Thursday night. This might seem surprising; it being the weekend and my sister and dad being gone. Well, all things said in my blog happened, and I mean everything. And yes, I did have lots of junk food last weekend.
So, let’s go day by day and unfurl these recent happenings and discoveries one by one, so you can take it in and gasp in awe at the epic things brought to you exclusively from the deep depths of the awesome, genius, and creative brain of Severe Storm Steve.

First, Friday night. On Friday night, I started work on Stranded Part 3. I haven’t come up with a title, nor have I come up with a sufficient synopsis or preview for you readers to get insight on this gamebook. Be expecting that soon, as I get deeper into the game.
On Saturday, that was a very lazy day. The more exciting tech discoveries happened yesterday. But before you scroll to the next paragraph, please read what happened on Saturday, just so you don’t miss any part of this post. :).
Well you know how I talked about junk food? Well there was some major junk food eating on my part Saturday. In the morning, breakfast consisted of donuts and coffee. For lunch, I had a nice high class plate of pizza rolls. For dinner, came the fancy; ultimate dinner for the president of the United States, frozen bean burritos! After that, I had a first class bottle of chocolate milk and a rare; exceptionally good candy called M&Ms.
On Sunday, I took out an item on my to-do list for November! I actually fixed my computer! You know how I’ve been looking for registry and disc cleaners for the last several months, well it turns out that indows disc defragmenter was the trick! What took me 4 months to do is something I could’ve done in 15 minutes! Okay, you can laugh at me now, I give you permission, because frankly I was laughing at me too! 🙂
Not only did I fix my computer yesterday, but I also did the exciting tech discovery! Are you ready?
I turned my iPhone into a wireless microphone for my computer!!! Here’s how I did it:
1. I purchased senstic pocket audio for $1.99, and put it on my Iphone.
2. I downloaded the free pocket control app for my windows computer from senstic.com.
3. I downloaded bonjour printing service from senstic.com as well.
4. I made sure my iphone and computer were both connected to my wi-fi.
5. I then allowed the pocket control port and stuff through my fire wall.
6. I ran both apps and it connected! Now I can record with them!
In english (by that I mean for non-tech users), this means that I could put my computer on the kitchen table, go upstairs and into my bedroom with my iphone, and if my computer is recording the phone will act as a microphone for my computer!
Moving on to today, it was an average Monday. There was school, and chillaxing, and then writing this blog post. Tomorrow, we are supposed to get such a strong cold front, it will bring the high temperatures in Texas into the upper 40’s, and the overnight lows ranging from the lower 20’s to 31 degrees!

I guess that concludes this blog post. Expect more life updates in the future. Also, expect clearer stranded updates, and later on a good summary. Also, the podcasts will come up soon, so expect a preview of it in one of those episodes!

Thanks for reading,

Steve.

sumarised update and game released


Hey you guys,
Steve again.

Woe… finally back blogging, huh?

So, as you know, summer break has started for me. In fact, it started 12 days ago, meaning I haven’t blogged in 2 weeks and 1 day. Haven’t you all missed my awesome posts? Oh yeah, and another thing to say. Remember I said stranded was to be released on June 8? Well I bet I ment to put a 1 before that 8, because it’s being released on June 18 instead of june 8. So, I will give you that game, before talking about my life.

stranded

So, as you should know, I am going to put the link before the story summary of the game. So, here it is: download the awesome game now. Now, for the story.

After waking up on a misterious platform in the middle of noware in this weird place, you must find your way through this game. As the title says, your objective is to fight and defeat the boss, who might seem a harmless mouse but isn’t one after all. In this game, you will encounter 2 elusive creatures–a cat that looks very violent and weird, but could actually be of some help, and the boss of course. After you defeat the boss, you will find out something you’ve wanted to know for a while now. You will find that out at the very end, but why should I spoil it for you? That’s right, I shouldn’t.

I hope you enjoy! Just make sure you hurry over to the gamebooks page and play stranded part 1 if you haven’t done so already.

life summary

Now, on to the life events.
My life has gone pretty well since June 3rd, because of tiger reward camp which turned out awesome, and then summer break. The strange thing was the fact that it didn’t set in for me that it was summer until the first monday we were off, because the way the school year ended for me. It ended with my dad picking me up early from school, nothing wrong with that just seeming something that might also happen in the middle of the school year. So, that’s why it took so long.
Otherwise, my last 2 weeks of summer have gone by pretty fast, because they were fun and stuff. One thing I forgot to mencion, is actually where I am now. I am at tsb once again (see the monthly archive for February because that was the last time I’ve been here), but this time I’m here for Catching Rays, a class all about solar weather. My teachers are pretty awesome, not to mencion everybody is my friend here. I even get to hang out with my computer geek friend, the only person I’ve been to more than 2 camps with. It is going to be a fun rest of the week–tomorrow we have a swim party, thursday a movie, and friday is going home. One thing we did in class is to make a SID solar wind antenna which has a computer that is round, light, and fits in the palm of your hand. It takes data it receives from solar blasts and CMEs and sends it to a sound card. I don’t remember much of the rest, but that you can put it in audacity (an audio editor) and here the frequency noises it makes. Also, it puts the data in a spread sheet.

On another note, if you’re wondering what I have planned for the summer, it is:
1. finish this tsb program
2. stay home for 2 weeks
3. go to lions club camp
4. stay home for 3 weeks
5. go to broken bow
6. go to maine
7. stay home until it’s gime to go back to school.

Well, I’m glad I got you caught up on the blog, and that stranded is finally out! I hope you enjoy!

Thanks for reading,

how my day went


Today, I got up and went to school like normal. Then, I came home and relaxed and played with the cat before going with my dad to pick Libby up from school, coming home, and relaxing on the couch until dinner, ate, then worked on my project before doing the kitchen, and then posting the journal. That is all I did today.

gamebook in the making:: day 1


It is day one of my new big project. I am brainstorming. After a while, I came up with the idea to create a gamebook where you will have to find your way out of something kinda like kids prison. But, I wanted a hard task, so I came up with one. It will be a long and hard game, so beware. Please stay intune for more updates, as my gaming prosess keeps going.
