Little bit of background: I am not the bill payer here, and it’s time for the home bills to be paid. On the one hand things should be sorted out and home phone/internet are the same bill, which the phone part is mildly important since I help watch special needs siblings and often am the only person with them while others run errends or do whatever.
However I have noted a disturbingly regular trend of the internet going out, being the bill to let drop, or whatever. Typically it’s a few days to a week, but I have had offline outages for longer… far longer.
Since for once I actually have a bit of heads up. Ideas on what to grab?
Stuff from the following youtube channels:
LGR (tecktales mostly but a few hardware reviews, and the like.
Ross’s game dungeon
Nostalgia critic’s talking about differentthings (where’s the fair use, when parody sucks, animation, etc.)
Jason Scott talks.
Found this interesting cut of the prequel trilogy mashed into a single movie I grabbed on principle.
Updated all my steam library bits (last time this happened steam refused to open when it didn’t see a connection though so I dunno.)
Windows and linux are both updated.
Grabbed my ebook collection from google drive along with calibre
Due to steam’s finnickyness I’d considered grabbing a ripper tool to snap up the genesis roms I’ve got there so I can play on a standalone emulator.
Really wish me trying to code didn’t look like a monkey on a typewriter since I have ideas that probably can be done in pygame… but it’s… my head just goes ‘wuuuut’ when i look at things even with the idiot’s guide as a hand holder. Any ‘I suck at math but want to make things in python or another easy language that’s linux friendly’ would be something productive to read.
Any suggestions on other stuff I should snag for this inevetability and or at least an explaination on why steam refused to open sans connection? This wasn’t ‘game not opening.’ this was steam itself failing to launch.
