Need to finish something

Gaming, Geek StuffMathew PackerComment

Last year I started at least 30 games last year, I didn't finish any of them...not even Monument Valley.

I really need to finish a game this year, even better if it's multiple games.

So I'm looking for some suggestions, and a little support too I guess, for an easy game to get into and finish. I'm hoping once I get one finished I'll be motivated to knock over a few others that I've started.

How To Capture Video Game Footage On PS4, Xbox One, PC And Mac

Kotaku has put together a pretty awesome guide on recording your awesome gameplay action.

Only thing missing for me was recording iOS games, there's a few different options from the Elgato Game Capture HD to just using the Lightning USB cable and Quicktime on Yosemite.

Anyway, well worth a read if you've been thinking about recording some gameplay to share.


Stupid spam

Just received this awesome bit of spam as I've just registered a couple of domain names for work...

This email is being sent out to you because search registration for cardiacagencies.com is pending.

Please register these domains to search engines like Google, Bing and Yahoo ASAP to avoid late fees.

I wonder how many people fall for this and think that they have to pay money to Google, Bing, etc. in order to be listed in their search engines?

You're Mac

Geek Stuff, Medical, WorkMathew PackerComment

Everything was plugged in. All systems were go. It just wouldn’t display and I was running out of time.

So my host calls in the IT guy. He walked in, looked at my set up and said it:

“Oh. You’re Mac”

Those were his exact words. He delivered them dripping with judgment. He didn’t say I was using a Mac. He said I was Mac.

A sad but funny read from David Sparkes.

And yep, I've encountered the exact same thing myself, but in the medical industry where absolutely EVERYTHING is Windows based....even if some of these softwares will only support up to XP. You remember XP, that's that operating system that came out more than 10 years ago.
