Losing sight

Posted on May 21st, 2013 - No Comments »

When people start a blog, Lets Play or whatever they normally start doing so because they enjoy it and not start simply for the sake of profit and if you are lucky people will notice what you do and join you with what you are enjoying doing. If you are unlucky then you either carry on doing it because you enjoy it or give up and move to something else.

Over time you will start to get better and better (only have to look at Tweaked for your Pleasure’s archive) and with this you will aim to become better and better. This could mean a better writer, editor, gamer and what not but regardless you will aim to improve on it and this is what will define you.

Commentary sync issues

Posted on April 29th, 2013 - No Comments »

I am sure as a reader you have either watched Playing Games with Snat, heard about it or have found this link via Google as you are doing your own Lets Play or having problems overlaying audio with footage.

If you are having this problem then carry on reading and if not, why are you here?

The main problem most people have (and the same one I did) is assuming that the audio is recorded as a fix length of time – aka if you recorded 30 minutes of gaming footage and 30 minutes of commentary that it will overlay without any problems. This is not exactly true as I have discovered sampling is what really matters and then secondly making sure audio is recorded without any skips.

Microwave Food: The Week Experiment

Posted on April 22nd, 2013 - 6 Comments »

A week or so back I did some recording with the help of Wrights Productions and a comment came up that if the owner was left to his own devices he will live purely of take away and microwave food. Now the reason for this is simply because he is very lazy and would prefer not to cook (if he can) but it got me thinking – what would it be like to actually live only eating microwave food.

Now really I should do this for a month but seeing I am lazy and prefer cooking a good meal, I am doing this for only a week and below are the results. This article will update daily. Should note I may pull this earlier if I decide for health reasons it is not wise to carry on. Should also note if you want to read more about possible bad tasting food, do go over to my food review blog at Is it Nice?.

Posted on February 17th, 2013 - No Comments »

If you remember back just less than a year ago, I wrote an article called Part 1: How to do a Let’s Play. Well today is the second part and this one goes into the software side of things. As before I am going to go over a range of prices. This article also assumes you want to do live voice recording and not recording afterwards but the same counts for those that do – you will just need to step a bit.

To find out the prices just open the link below in a new window and you will find them right away.

HTML Rewrite Exploit

Posted on January 29th, 2013 - No Comments »

Today I am going to write about something I have noticed on so many websites and then for it to work and honestly I am so surprised that when I contacted the webmaster of those websites they had NO idea it was even possible. With this in mind I have decided to write this article so if you do not know if you have this issue you are able to check.

First of all for this exploit to work the programmer behind the website needed to have not done any checks when it comes to confirming payments. Normally a payment script works like this.

How to keep blogging…

Posted on January 7th, 2013 - No Comments »

Many people when they start blogging start with the idea that they will be earning millions from advertising and that they can simply sit back and let everything happen. After a few weeks they start to work out it is not that easy and they give up even trying to carry on due to one main reason – they do not enjoy what they do.

Enjoying writing is the key to success when it comes to blogging but there is always a time where ideas just escape you and no matter how hard you think you are unable to come up with any ideas and this article hopefully will help you out a bit. So today you are going to learn a very basic method that can be used to find content to write about.

Becoming a laird

Laird Nemo of Great Barrier Reef
Picture from Snat

As of today I am please to say I am The Much Honoured Irvine Carbrey Pal Grant Mac Fhionnlaigh of Kincavel and you all … wait someone else is already a laird of Kincavel and I can’t use it? Can I keep the Irvi… no okay.

So I have been hearing a lot more about people selling land which allows you to become a laird – I even looked back at it in 2007 and wondered if it was actually legal to actually buy a title. If you are wondering what I am on about check this link – Buy a Laird Title from a company you think would actually research it.

… so we survived Doomsday 2012

Posted on December 21st, 2012 - 1 Comment »

If you are reading this then you have access to the World Wide Web so listen up. We are the last few of the human race that has survived just like the Mayan said would happen. As you know either a black hole, the Sun blew up, Planet X hit us, zombies has returned, Jesus is here or the Internet isn’t working and civilization is on the edge of dying completely.

So the first thing you got to remember is to find a place to stay. Remember the most important thing to find is to get access to the World Wide Web so you can post online that you survived. The second thing is to want to make sure you take as many photos as you can of any weapons, any food caches you have online so people know it is safe to come to you.
