Why its important to learn

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Lazy Learners.”

So I was reading the Daily Prompt earlier this morning after finding it on a website I read quite often (am hoping to update Tweaked for your Pleasure quite a bit more) and saw something that caught my eye – being lazy about learning. 

Its kinda funny as it’s the reason one of the planned video series I was going to bring out on Playing Games with Snat which was about exploring glitches that exist in games and what you can do with it. So an example I had in mind was exploring a game like Final Fantasy VI (which would have been the first one) and then show all the known glitches in it and how you can abuse it in both to break your game and for benefits when it comes to playing it.

Not everything needs a sequel

When it comes to films and games revisiting an old world with its history and myths is always far cheaper and easy to do then make up a completely new one – this is why Square Enix created Fabula Nova Crystallis. Now there no problem re-visiting and re-using old ideas but you do not have to keep ending every single game and film with a cliffhanger or setting it up for a sequel when by itself it would have done just fine but welcome to milking things. 

Now I am not saying  that every sequel out there is bad but do you really need to keep making stories where you must watch or play so many parts just to even understand what is going on or even a sudden twist at the end where it basically says – “Hey everything that happened doesn’t matter – look the big bad guy is still alive and on contract!”.

The importance of TESTING backups

This post relates to the massive download months ago – I only just got around to finishing writing it!

Well fuck me.

For anyone that may follow my fan page on Facebook, I had a very massive “technical” problem which involved every single of my websites to go down and to make matters even worst … all of my backups ended up either not working, disappeared or out right bullshit. Well this is the problem I had lately as after the issue I had with the system, all of my backups were basically useless and although thankfully I was able to restore them using different methods (thank you recovermywebsite.com and Comcure!), I would have been screwed if they were not there.

The Battle for One Space

Ah the public transport system … the one place where I always am able to find something to rant about and while it has been a while – the other day I saw something that made me laugh quietly. So first, lets set the scene.

It was a nice warm day with no children in sight and there was room to sit down as far as the eyes could see. The temperature of the bus was mild and neither too warm nor cold and the real condition of the bus made you think someone was going to be inspecting it at random as it was clean, repaired and overall a lovely place you may actually want to sit in for about 45 minutes.

Still Alive

Yikes! Its been a while from when I have updated Tweaked for your Pleasure and it’s not due to lack of ideas but a lot of other stuff that’s been popping up and some stuff that’s been happening within my own personal life.

But thankfully that is now passing over and just giving a note that I am now planing to carry on with the following video series while also updating Tweaked for your Pleasure with the random stuff that appears in my end. The videos are:

  1. Tweaked for your Viewing Pleasure
  2. Playing Games with Snat (Can’t link to this – far too many)
  3. (more…)


Never overlook the basics

I would imagine most people who is reading this website has a lot of technical knowledge when it comes to computers and I am sure you quite likely play games and if you play them on the PC I am sure you have, at times, suffered from frame rate problems.

Well I had this problem quite a lot lately with my system deciding to lag like hell during playing some games or video exporting (and if you are wondering, yes that is why they are being released very slowly) and I have looked into many reasons why and tried the following.


Don’t drink that in front of me!

So the other day I was wondering around town where just like anybody else, I decided that I needed a drink. So I walked into Morrisons and having been “some what” careful of drinking sugar lately I went to buy a Coco Cola Zero because when cold it does kinda taste like the original Cola.

So anyhow I bought it and went outside the shopping area, went to the bus stop and then sat down opened up the bottle when a random woman who had a couple of children with her decided to say quite loudly the following:

HOW DARE YOU DRINK THAT IN FRONT OF MY CHILD!

Channel Clicking

Imagine this:

A police officer is running through a burning building slowly losing his grip over a Glock 17 as someone is running away when suddenly a car is speeding around following a train and then all of a sudden someone is cooking – that is what channel surfing is like and it is very, VERY annoying.

Now I can understand if you are watching TV and a ads start appearing and you flick over to other channels while you wait for the show to come back on, but why do people and I know a lot of them that does this, watch something until the break then switch to something else and once that hits a break to then switch to something else while not actually finish watching anything. To me that is just being lazy or there is nothing actually worth while watching and you would likely be better off just turning the TV off.
