My gaming computer (or, as I like to call it, our gaming computer) is hardwired, as I’ve mentioned!
Download speeds are almost phenomenal at this point, especially when they are compared to previous speeds, and upload speeds are so much more stable. I’m looking forward to resuming streaming soon, although I need to figure out whether or not I want to restart games to have more streaming hours with them streaming them from the beginning or… not. I know that was a mouthful. And I do know that I want to add some games to the assortment of games that I’m already streaming, one of which being Cuphead complete with DLC. Not only do I like it — it may be extremely difficult, but it’s adorable, so I put up with it in spite of that — but one of my friends who tries as hard as he can to watch my streams in spite of being in a different time zone (Freeza, -2 hours from me) likes it, so I figured… why not? If repeated deaths annoy me too much I can always take a break from it and play other games until I’m ready to pick it back up, whenever that date may be. I don’t need to burn myself out on something I like that I want to make into something…
Back in the day, when I had two blogs attached to a domain of mine via subdomain, it wasn’t that difficult to get PageRank on both of them… but this was “in the day” when self-hosted blogging was more popular than it was, so PageRank just kind of came to them over time. Now I’m checking my blog’s PageRank on sites like Google PageRank Checker (not a plug, honestly! just a site that I use), wondering when or even if this blog will ever obtain some sort of PageRank. If I ever want to do anything in the way of this blog, having some kind of PageRank on that would not only be nice, it would be kind of instrumental… or that’s what I’ve been led to believe, anyway. I’m still led to believe that Google PageRank is a pretty important metric to consider.
I guess this is something that I’m going to have to figure out for myself and to play by ear. Admittedly, blogging isn’t quite as popular as it used to be, although I’m obviously very glad that people still do blog.
Another thing that I didn’t mention in here was that last month, for the better part of one evening and… through the following night, my site actually crashed. Part of this was due to my site’s host, although they were good about letting me know this when I submitted a ticket. For some strange reason, the other part of this was due to my SSL, which I was able to fix the following morning once my site’s hosting came back up. In the interim, it was like my third child had crashed, though. However, I attribute it to the nortriptyline that my neurologist has me on for migraine prophylaxis that I was more mellowed out about it than I would otherwise have been — at the very least, my blog crashing for several hours would have upset me more than it actually did (and I mean, it did bother me that my site was down for roughly twelve hours, but it didn’t distress me). But at any rate, I do have some really nice SSL going for my blog now due to it, which is good.
I think it would actually bother me more if Instagram crashed for a long time, because for all intents and purposes I should be the world record holder for most pictures taken on it (116,000 and counting… and yes, that is how many pictures I’ve actually taken on there). My account there is private right now, though I would be willing to open it up and keep it open if that would allow me to actually get the world record for that, heh.
Since I’ve been uploading most of my Facebook videos to our YouTube account, who knows though… maybe I’ll inadvertently get the world record for most videos posted over there since all of those have to be public by default. I might trip and fall myself into a world record. It’ll happen before I know it. At some point it has to.
