  1. I really should've read the back of the thing before I bought it as it says HD to VGA. I've bought from this nearby shop before. And usually I would be told no refunds. I felt like I was very specific in that I needed to hook up my PC up to an HDTV. I guess I'll be there tomorow trying to explain they sold me the wrong part.

    *Edit 1*

    I got a refund after them trying to convince me that HD to VGA is the same as VGA to HD. They had to test it before they refunded me and it worked. I didn't see the test as it was in the back. So this all feels very weird because it somehow works for them, but not for me. And if it didn't work for them I wouldn't have gotten refunded.

    *Edit 2*

    I think I found what I was looking for on amazon.com from a 3rd party seller. A 6 foot cable VGA to HDMI Adapter with audio from Foinnex. Plus 2 Year Protection.

    ....

    I would've copy & pasted the URL, but the Steam Machine browser doesn't have that ability.

  2. In advance sorry for any mispellings.

    My CRT Monitor died yesterday. I wanted to get it repaired. But the nearest place to my home doesn't repair CRT Monitors. I bought wires that I thought would connect my PC to that HDTV I bought. But they don't want to work together.

    Currently I'm connecting to the internet via that Steam Machine I bought.

    I need access to my Real PC because that's where my writings, phone, etc are.

    I might have to wait till next month as I'm short on cash. But I think my only options right now are to either pay $95 (an hour) to probably be told that my PC will only connect to a CRT Monitor. Or find a "new" CRT Monitor.


  3. I don't think that's the original Voice Acting as they have changed how the stories were in the original.

    They also changed Claire Redfield's original outfit. I'm going miss her Black Boxer Briefs under Red Daisy Dukes Shorts outfit she had.

    And I don't like the whole flashlight & boarding up windows mechanics.

  4. I ended up buying a Nintendo Switch today because this might be the last good game Solid Snake shows up in until the next Super Smash Bros.

    *Edit*

    I'm confused on why Nintdendo would expect its customers to buy a Lan Adapter, only buy Official Nintendo Products, then not make an Official Nintendo Switch Lan Adapter.

    In other news I barely regret not buying Skyrim for Nintendo Switch.


  5. I can try to take this as their version of Super Smash Bros, but that ending just makes me think of this.

    But to build a snowman you must think like a snowman.

    I was tempted to buy a steam controller at one point, but it didn't look comfortable to use. Why was it bad for you? Can those touch pad things emulate mouse movements decently?

    The controller is comfortable to hold. But the right touch pad makes it hard to aim. It really should've been a control stick.

    The only modern games it'll play will most likely only be games that are currently playable on linux via steam.

    So it could basically be a Steam Machine with a better controller?

    Not saying that would be enough for me to buy an Atari VCS, but the Steam Controller is the worst controller I've ever used.

    Also I would really need to see proof that Atari VCS could run modern games or even games that came out for PS3 & Xbox 360.

  9. Deadpool 2 is way better than the previous one. Like good enough that I don't want to say anything bad about it.

    Spoiler

    Basically past the ending Deadpool makes the same jokes that he made in his first Deadpool movie.

    For a moment I thought Bishop was going to show up.

    Beast quietly closing the door was funny.

    Almost everyone who didn't show up more than once in the trailer died, but that probably doesn't matter.

    Also

    Cable wasn't part of The Reavers. But part of me now wants to falsely predict that Hope will join The Starjammers. Because Thanos reference.

     


  10. December 14th was coming. (That was just the vote to destroy Net Neutrality)

    Then April 23rd was coming. (But it wasn't officially the death of Net Neutrality.)

    Now June 11th is coming. (I'm guessing this news is happening now as the CRA most likely failed.)

     

    I might just be paranoid. But I'm really expecting a lot of websites to be gone before the 2020 election. Or even before this November.

  11. Otherwise known as The Death Of Net Neutrality. So before ISPs destroy us all for the sake of liking us only as consumers here's what I did before the end.

    Gaming

    As a sign of me being overly paranoid (And GWG not giving me these games sooner) I bought Dark Souls II, TES IV Oblivion (Again), TES V Skyrim (Again), Saints Row (Again), Saints Row 2 (Again), Fallout 3 (Again), & Fallout NV (Again).

    1. Yeah the only game I didn't buy again was Dark Souls II. Because I didn't really get into Dark Souls after years of not just looking up how to beat the first boss. I still expect this to be the hardest Dark Souls I'll ever play even if I don't have to worry about being invaded.
    2. TES IV Oblivion was about $5 when I bought it on Xbox 360. My PS3 copy is preowned & stopped working. TES V Skyrim is what caused my PS3 to break due to my own insanity. Thus making me prefer digital distribution even more. Also I'm still sick of buying Skyrim & hope not to do so again until the 2020s.
    3. Saints Row 1&2 I already owned for Xbox 360 (2 also being the one I own multiple times also on PS3 & Steam). Both were under $5 each. Not sure why MS doesn't make at least the first Saints Row run on Xbox One as it has remained exclusive to them.
    4. Fallout 3 & NV I both owned & sold for the PS3 due to moral issues. But this time around I'm playing as immoral characters so not as big of a problem this time around. Also they were about $5 each.

    My Fiction & HTML5 Game Ideas

    I was expecting 2017 to somehow be my last chance to save myself before Ben Carson destroyed my housing assistance. And still get myself destroyed because of Ajiit Pai. However I'm once again save by procrastination. Over a decade of demotivated procrastination. My self censorship continues.

    my political views

    As Net Neutrality comes to an end I wonder if I'll have the urge to vote. As my needs for my American Dream were either overlooked or were going to be hated anyway. I think if my representatives ever represent me it'll be when I'm pass the age of 40 still dealing with the crisis my mother created for me when I was 21.

  12. I finally had that one Zoo Dream that I wanted about a female cheetah. But it was a very short moment. So it wasn't really worth writing it down when I had it months ago.

    -

    I think I had a more exciting dream last night or at least it ended that way.

    I had broken into a home with an accomplice looking for information for a project. I went into someone's room reading whatever magazines they had. After awhile my accomplice came back telling me it was time to go. I was leaving with my accomplice, but we didn't leave the same way we entered. I thought we were going to the garage. But as we got deeper into the house it went from modern day to feudal Japan.

    The house became occupied & I couldn't keep up with my accomplice. I think I ended up following someone else. When that person finally came to a stop I was noticed by a man down stairs. The person I was now following insisted on fighting me till one of us killed the other. I declined as I was more of a thief than an assassin. The man down stairs said that I would then be boiled alive.

    I pleaded for my life saying I would return any money I had stolen from them. I at first dropped coins down stairs only to realize I was being disrespectful. I went down stairs to pick up the coins where I noticed some of them were Chuck E. Cheese Tokens. I then placed the coins into the man's hand. He said I could leave. I replied questioningly, I can? He then stated I couldn't leave there alive.

    And then I woke up.
