      So, things are continuing on an upward trend. Things are going well at work, I'm kicking ass, but that's about as far as one could go into detail.

      As far as videos go, I'm still keeping a good pace, though I need to capture and stuff after work tomorrow to make sure we have the rest of the week covered while I'm AHTVing Thursday and Friday. w00t. Sorry for not having it last week, I had to reschedule some stuff and my availability dropped. But this is happening and continuing.

      As far as changes that I'm making to my health and stuff, I grabbed a bike a few weeks back, and with the RunKeeper Pro App that's free this month on my iPhone, I've been tracking my rides to and from work, while also rocking some crazy long routes here and there. You're more than welcome to keep track of that yourself if you're the stalkerish type.

      I'm also working out regularly again, so maybe AHTV will get a gunshow worthy of AHTV. Or something.

      All in all I feel I'm keeping up my end of the bargain. How's your New Years treating you?

      SUPER EDIT:

      So, the title of the Journal says "Challenges" and I mentioned nothing of them. I hit 500 challenges in Halo Reach yesterday. And that's from getting all of them since September 14th, 2010. So yay that. I may be taking it lightly on that game in the near future. We'll see. You may click the thumbnail to see for yourself.

    • 1 week down...

      Knuckles_D

      51 to go...

      So, things are off to a pretty solid start as far as making good on previous claims.

      Got some solid videos out over the past week with more to come this week.

      At this point it looks like AHTV is going to fall on Saturday, and I'm thinking that we'll try to plug through my Impossible playthrough of Dead Space, in honor of its sequel hitting next week (I think). Sound good? Expect a news post on the front page tomorrow about it.

      Also, this is being posted from the RT app on my iPhone, so that's why it may seem a little light on the link side of things.

      And finally, thanks for your supportive words from my previous journal, it means a lot to me.

    • 2011.

      So here we are, with a New Year. New Opportunities. New Ideals. New Life.

      So let's do a quick year in review, here. 15 Journals? That won't do. That won't do at all. Including one at the end of March condemning myself for a lack of activity? Damn.

      Well, things have been changing for the last couple months for me;

      I got a job, a pretty fun one at that, working at a technology store. So not too far off from Luke's use of my likeness in the RT Comics, but better, in my opinion.

      With that, getting out of a lethargic slump that (it's embarrassing to add up and admit this) seventeen months of being unemployed ... *sigh* ... feels invigorating to say the least. It allowed me to get back in the habit of managing time, and thus get comfortable with allotting time to be devoted to this. You guys. The site. Videos. AHTV. Stuff of that nature.

      I apologize for the wait. I apologize (again) for letting you down. Letting myself down. But I don't want to have to apologize anymore. Things are going to change. For the better.

      This. This year. This is the year of my redemption. I'm back, with something to prove. To you, to myself. To everyone.

      Thank you.

      Hey everyone. As you know, Extra Life is tomorrow. It's a big deal. I'm gonna be streaming on KD Live tomorrow, and on AHTV for Saturday October 23rd. I would really appreciate any little bit you guys could do for my cause. Please make a donation here

      Thanks guys. And see you there.

    • PAX. and Awesomeness

      Knuckles_D

      You there?
      I'm there.
      Also, my U.S. number is 206 890 0213 (and won't be turned on until I'm IN THE States tomorrow.)

      So like. Don't spam me, it's AT&T Pay as you go on my iPhone. and I need what's left of my 200 texts for PAX. But if you're at PAX feel free to give me a call or text. I'm on the plan where It's $1/day + Free AT&T Mobile to Mobile or an additional 10c/min for non ATT calls.

      So yeah, I'm experimenting with having a public phone number. Don't make me regret it.

    • "AT&T Live Web Support"

      8 years ago

      Knuckles_D

      Oh, internets, how I love you. Hopefully you find this as funny as I did. Sorry for double dipping journals today.

      Thank you for your patience! An AT&T sales representative will be with you shortly.
      You are now chatting with Michael C., an AT&T sales representative.

      Michael C.: Welcome to AT&T online Sales support. How may I assist you today?

      David: Hey, I'm a Canadian who travels to the U.S. Frequently, and getting a Pay as you Go plan with you is cheaper than Travel Packs with Rogers Wireless. I wanted to ask a few questions, and maybe set up an account, and pick up a Micro-SIM for my phone next time I'm in the States this weekend.

      Michael C.: Hi David, I'd be happy to help you out.  I'm not sure what Rogers offers (despite being Canadian), but we've got a couple of options for prepaid plans.

      David: Their travel plans are okay, but your texting and data plans are mighty attractive. (Rogers does 10 MB for $25, you do 100MB for $10)

      Michael C.: Actually it's 100MB for $19.99, but yeah, still better.

      David: Significantly. Yes, $20, I was mixing up your 200 txt and 1000 txt price tiers. Which are $4.99 and $9.99, I think.

      Michael C.: Oh yeah, still not a bad price eh.  Going to be using a lot of data?

      David: Well, I have an iPhone 4, which in Canada can be sold as a "world phone" (SIM unlocked from the Apple Store), am only ever in the states for maybe a week at a time, so for the same price, I can take my usage a lot further... So long as I can get a Micro-Sim with Pay as You go plans, I'm set.

      Michael C.: Okay, that's where there's a problem.  We only have standard sim cards on GoPhone.

      David: Okay. That's fine.

      Michael C.: Sorry about that!  You can of course use any other phone.

      David: Or, at my own expense, remove excess plastic from the sim card so that it presto-change-o becomes a Micro-SIM. Not that I'm asking an ATT Representative to acknowledge, condone, or endorse such activities.

      Michael C.: Of course. Now you won't be able to get the sim online without getting a phone, but feel free to head down to an AT&T store next time you're in the States.

      David: Right. So I have to pay for a GoPhone. I was browsing and saw some throw away thing for like, 25 bucks


      Michael C.: We've got some for $30 with a $15 airtime credit.

      I cut out more of the conversation to fit in the body limit of a journal. I'll repaste the whole conversation in the first comment of this entry.

      David: Cause I'm probably gonna go for either the 3 bucks a day per use

      David: Cause if I'm down in Seattle for the Penny Arcade Expo in September for 5 days, that's 15 bucks or less... Or maybe 25 cents/min and a good 100 texts would cover me.

      Michael C.: Heading to PAX?  Go to the Idle Thumbs event.  Yeah, if it's just a lot of texting then that might work too.

      Michael C.: You can change the plan any time online.

      David: Idle Thumbs?

      Michael C.: They're a gaming podcast, one of the best.  They're doing an event there.

      David: Are you involved with it or attending?

      Michael C.: If I wasn't half way across the country I'd be attending!

      David: Well, I'll be sure to say Michael C sent me

      David: I'm with Rooster Teeth myself

      David: So I'll need the ATT plan when I'm down in Austin

      Michael C.: The Machinima guys?  Nice!

      David: Yeah

      David: I do Achievement Hunter videos

      Michael C.: I love you more than you'd like to hear.

      Michael C.: AT&T is happy to have you.

      David: You Rooster Teeth or You Me?

      Michael C.: Either works, really.  Been a fan since Red v Blue

      David: So if I said I was... Knuckles Dawson. Would that mean anything?

      Michael C.: Oh Jesus.

      Michael C.: Yeah, you do good work!

      David: Yeah, I just gave you a shoutout on my Twitter to verify I'm not shitting you.

      Michael C.: I'll check her when I get off work, but I don't doubt it.

      David: ChurchesWife also says hi.

      Michael C.: Bloody brilliant man.  I'm going to have to follow her on twitter too.

      David: You're familiar with the lady?

      Michael C.: I am, I went through the whole Rooster Teeth -> Achievement Hunter tree a while back

      David: Cool beans.

      Michael C.: Well, if you get a chance, say hi to Chris Remo.

      David: At Idling Thumbs?

      Michael C.: Idle, yup.  He's a standup guy, been in the industry for a while.

      Michael C.: Shacknews, Gamasutra, etc.

      David: Anyway, Michael, you've been a great help with AT&T information, and please send me a @reply on the twitters

      David: If I could customer review your ass, I would.

      Michael C.: I will certainly do so.  Enjoy your (hopefully cheaper) plan, and enjoy PAX!

      Michael C.: When you close the chat, you certainly can ;)
    • Last AHTV...

      8 years ago

      Knuckles_D

      Was a blast, I had a great time with Darksiders, taking out noobs in RISK, and playing through Alan Wake on Nightmare and collecting everything along the way, finishing after about 27.5 hours of broadasting. But the star of the show wasn't me, it was this guy. Lifeform made getting everything in the game a breeze, because he was on a Skype call with me, watching the vids Geoff did of the collectibles, had a written guide of the Nightmare only manuscript pages, and was playing through the game himself (on hard). That was above and beyond the call of duty to help streamline my acquisition of said items, and keep the game flowing for everyone watching. Hats of to you, sir.

      But yeah, that was great, I missed a good long haul AHTV. Did you drop by and watch for a bit?

    • 25 hour AHTV Saturday @ 9 AM PT/12 PM ET

      8 years ago

      Knuckles_D

      Figured I'd just do this in journal form because it still hits twitter and plenty of you watch me or the AH blog.

      So yeah, 9 AM be there.
      Why?
      Because we got:
      Alan Wake on Nightmare+ The Signal
      Bioshock2 + protector trials
      BFBC2 + Onslaught
      Darksiders
      Limbo
      Dreamcast games up the wazoo
      And more...
      So the question remains:
      You coming, or what?

      And then you find this guy: profile.mygamercard.net/Stallion83
      That has about 3x your gamerscore. Crazy

      The difference between that guy and Knuckles is that Knuckles has been laid...I'm assuming. He at least has a girlfriend which is more than we can say for that other guy. Girlfriends just don't allow for the time needed to earn that many achieveables.
