I win three games in a row on my live stream with three strangers.

I played this on my laptop so it’s only captured in 720p, sorry. I just didn’t update the settings at the time but going forward I am going to try to have even higher quality videos like I used to. I have many videos left to edit including squad and arena wins.

I went out for my Birthday

My 40th birthday was on the 8th. I played a bit of pinball at the pinball bar.

I played a few machines for over an hour and only spent about $5.

I would have played more but I didn’t have a ton of time and it was busy.

I would have posted sooner but I’ve been preparing my new office, working on my new car, and clearing out my storage units.

Upgrades & Repairs

I have seven new Fortnite wins / videos on the way! The EverQuest Bard Epic video is also still in the works & I still plan to release additional EverQuest Epic Quest videos. Jesse will be joining me on some of that.

This case must be fairly common, I keep seeing it.

I had to clean this one a lot as it had dog hair and other dirt and dust inside. I also had to replace several mounting brackets & all of the mounting screws since he only used four screws & they were the wrong size, hence the need for replacing the brackets. Afterward I updated the bios, windows, and all of the drivers. It now runs Apex perfectly & he added me in Fortnite.

Here’s a photo of one of my machines running.

I was at a pawn shop & they had a complete copy of Jackal for sale! I didn’t buy it but not a bad price for retail at $80. To be honest I was surprised to see it.

Guess what! I got a new office to replace my office in Minneapolis. I will be working out of multiple locations. I’ll give you an update on that in the future.

I did a liquid cooling replacement for a customer. His liquid cooling had failed, the pump had gone out, so I installed this for him & that solved his issue with it overheating and shutting down.

Below is an image of a machine that was also overheating from liquid cooling. The customer did not want to spend the money to replace the liquid cooling, so I installed air cooling for him & that solved his issue.

I did not take a photo of it after I fixed it, but it now has a similar cooler to the one in my machine from above.

Another guy came in & he needed his bios updated from F2 all the way to 63D, which is a lot of updates, but I got it done. I had to flash it numerous times because that’s what the manufacturer recommended.

It’s now running great & I’m actually returning this to him on Monday just to be sure, I’m running some additional tests.

Look out for those videos next week! I will be moving into my new office & getting things settled but I hope to post at least a few wins by Sunday evening.

That’s about it for this update, a lot more happened, but this was fun. Time for supper & some drinks.

Another Win

I had some Arena wins but here is an early season win with Leaf & Topher.

I did not play well yesterday & I decided to get a lot of sleep today & I’m hoping to play better this evening & Sunday. There were several games we came in 2nd I feel like I could have won if I had hit my shots. I am going to make an adjustment & also play some games on my new laptop.

My Computers

I recently refurbished this 17″ 2011 Macbook Pro!

That’s an everything bagel in case you were wondering.

I also sold a 2015 15″ Macbook Pro with Monterey, a 2020 Macbook Air, & a 2019 Macbook Pro! Additionally I sold a 2012 Macbook Pro I had upgraded & installed Catalina on. I also sold a red Dell 2-in-1 laptop & I re-built my gaming machine. Yes, I rebuilt my gaming machine again & installed a new M.2 & a new power supply. I have some plans & we’ll see how it goes.

The case is all aluminum. Clearly, it’s air cooled. This is in the back office where we service computers but it’s running great & I will be gaming on this thing later. I am planning another machine, I have a couple ideas & I’ll make that decision later.
