Hey, Hello, and Howdy.
Just thought I'll stop by and see how everyone is doing.
Been away on life, nothing new to report.

Guess this is my 2014 wrap up journal of sorts. The fact that it's late is actually quite fitting as time constraints have been the bane of my existence. Anyway...
The kids are growing up fast (as cliche as that is) and a byproduct of that is they do more things and go more places. This is great! It takes much more of my time, but spending it with them is always worth it. Watching them grow, learn, and overall become more independent... And most importantly, we are almost done with changing diapers. I don't think I'll ever have full use of my nose again.
At the end of 2013 I finally got approval to work from home. This may seem like the best thing ever, and it kinda is. However this wasn't just for convenience or extra video game/goofing off time. I work for a small business and the owner was getting ready to retire. I was to take over running the company when he did. Did I mention that the company was run out of his house. See where this is going? Fast forward to mid 2014, the owner retired and I took over. Everything was all set up here by this point and things have been going well. The hours can be quite long some days but I do almost nothing on other days, so it's balanced. I'm happy with it, even if I am tired more often. It's mostly stress free work.
With what time I do have left most of it is spent on them video games things. With the new generation of consoles I've gone back to mostly playing PC. This is something that I tend to do every generation. I can never justify the price for new hardware when there are so few games to play,
and the fact that everything that is getting released is broken doesn't help. But that is an argument for another day. I keep saying I'm going to start making more videos again, but that always seems to fall back on the shelf due to other tasks that demand my attention. Although, I have committed to one right now... You'll see it in about 3 weeks :) Most of my video type effort/time has been in streaming, this is because it's easier and takes allot lets time with more interaction with the viewers. The rest of my existence can be summed up with eating, sleeping, bodily functions.
The only thing I don't like about everything is that I don't get to talk to my friends much anymore.

I guess there is a reason we called him Ray Jr. after all. Ever since he could crawl he always wanted to watch Daddy do work around the house. As he has grown he even yells at me to "help" turn the screwdriver or hold the nails for me. Well today I was changing my oil, went to get a rag and this happened

This will be a cross post from this thread. But I figured some of you might be interested as well...
My setup has been evolving over the years and as such has expanded to take up a fair bit of room. It's built to provide an all-in-one experience. Home theater/entertainment system as well as gaming, editing, and streaming suite. This is all set up on one wall in my basement so the lighting for pictures isn't the best.
At the core we have my surround sound receiver with 7.1. Games I'm currently playing normally end up here too. The rest get tucked in a drawer until needed. 2 360s, an Xbox and an N64 are currently set up on top of my front tower speakers.
My console gaming is done on a 50" with a set of Tritton AX Pro and recorded with the old standard, the Happauge HD PVR
My desk is next in line with an amazing amount of wires tying these three stations together. For post commentary and general voice recording needs I use a Blue Snowball c/w pop-filter. For my listening and PC gaming needs I have a Sharkoon headset (new addition to setup as of yesterday).
The desk itself is a nice size, after making a few modifications as my setup evolved. and I run a 2 monitor setup with a 22" primary and 19" slave. Add a Dragon War gaming mouse and some basic speakers for when I'm not running the sound to my TV setup or headphones and that will bring us to the heart of the operation
My custom built tower. I7 3770K, 16Gig ram, and 2.5 TB of storage over 3 HDDs to separate out the drive workload for different situations and maximizing frame rates and minimizing frame drop for both recording and rendering
