I now have the mic on our desktop set up the way it should be (and, at that, a really nice setup that doesn’t get in the way of anything else… man, I’m loving this right now). The ring light should also be in a position to where it doesn’t look like it’s flickering on the webcam overlay of my streams even though nothing looks like it’s actually flickering in my room. Good times. (I suppose there’s a bit of a learning curve to this. I don’t mind.)
I’m also finding out that some peripherals have to be plugged directly into the computer via USB, not put on one of those splitter things. That’s a bit of a shame because now I’m going to have to juggle things on the peripheral splitters, but it’s nothing that’s completely unmanageable. It’s not as unwieldy as our television currently is. I’ve often made the joke that I don’t want to have to switch our television from gaming to satellite unless I absolutely have to (and I will for Doctor Who… just not anything from The CW, and I mean that). I’m not going to be one of the ones who “comes back” to The CW because Misha Collins is working on a pilot for Gotham Knights for it and Jensen Ackles has secured a script commitment for The Winchesters.
