Well, specifically the motherboard. I guess I’ll have to take a few months to save up a bit to upgrade my whole rig.
Unfortunately, because the motherboard is from 2011, and I want to upgrade my PC in general, I’m basically in a position where I have to wait. Buying a modern motherboard means I need to buy a new compatible CPU and new RAM, and at that point I’m already halfway there to building a full computer, so I might as well wait and save up.
One of the strongest issues with any of the LEGO series I’ve done is that my buildings are not particularly advanced, and though the story can be well told, the creations are not exactly top notch.
I intend on changing that, as much as I can. As such, I’ve been establishing a budget for parts, and I’ve been using the LEGO Digital Designer to create new vehicles / structures.
Here’s an example of what some of them look like:
Additionally, I’m about 90% done working on my new studio area, and about 50% done working on the new surface itself. I’m expanding beyond the classic dresser top that I’ve used for the past 10 years. I now intend on having different surfaces for different terrains. More on that later!
I’ve been working on a new studio (really just a spare room in the house that I’m converting) for future projects. As a result, I bought a new camera, which I can connect to a laptop, as you can see in the picture below.
I’m rigging up an improved lighting system, and I’m looking into different stained woods or acrylic plastic for new backgrounds and floor textures. I’ll let you know how that goes.
Today’s Friday content is more of the book I’ve been writing. Chapter 2 was just released today.
Take a look at all of the chapters here!
Click the “Merry Christmas” button for a fun Christmas surprise! (Obviously temporary, though for people who miss it, you can try it here: Merry Christmas!
Also, changing things up a bit.
New content every Friday.
New blog post every Tuesday.
I set alarms for myself to remind myself, let’s see if I can make it happen!
I’ve cleaned up the site quite a bit. I have a lot more to clean up and add, but it’s at a point where I can at least open it up again, instead of sitting it in maintenance mode indefinitely.
Here’s what I did:
- Added “Watch,” “Listen,” and “Read” sections as the main sections of content. This helps organize everything into categories, and makes content easier to find.
- Made new sections for podcasts, different videos, and pretty much all other stuff that I want to promote.
- Cleaned up the link system. Now, everything is tiered now, which makes a whole lot of sense when you start clicking around. It’s easier to see when you just click to different content.
- Added 5 more podcasts
- Added a section for articles and writing
I’ve also temporarily removed some content while I figure out where to put it. I’ll get to it eventually, I’ve just been working on this for two days straight and I need a break. Don’t bother telling me about issues just yet, I know there’s still bugs to work out, just have fun browsing in the mean time. You might even find content that has been around for a while, but you didn’t see because of my poor organization!
