    • Anyone need a roommate for PAX South?

      3 years ago

      PeteG Sponsor

      Will pay my share of the room. Prefer a bed, but can bring my own inflatable mattress.


      Pros:

      • Am a decent human who showers at least once a day
      • Can bring Cards Against Humanity and/or Super Fight and/or alcohol

      Cons:

      • PAX South
      • Puns


      So again:


      Anyone need a roommate for PAX South?

    • RvB Half-Marathon THIS WEEKEND!

      4 years ago

      PeteG Sponsor

      I'm going to do a Half-Marathon! I'm gonna be that guy with sticker on his car that says 13.1! And I'm not gonna run a single step!

      That's right, friends I'm doing 13.1 @Miles seasons of Red vs Blue!

      I'm going to one of the Alamo Drafthouse screenings of Red vs Blue season 13 and I figure, what better way to prepare than to watch all of the seasons over the weekend leading up to it! I needed a reason to crack open my RVBX blu-ray box set anyway!

      If you would like to participate as well here's the marathon schedule:

      Saturday: The Blood Gulch Chronicles (Seasons 1-5) and the Out of Mind mini-series

      Sunday: The Recollection (Seasons 6-8 w/ extras) and Project Freelancer (9-10)

      Monday: The Chorus Trilogy (Seasons 11 - 13)

      (PSA's may also be watched in between seasons, time permitting)

      All the RvB goodness you can stand in one long weekend!

      13 seasons and 1 mini-series. They're all online for free. So...

      Goodbye old site. It's been fun. And buggy. And amazing. And occasionally broken. And an online home-base no matter where I went.

      One day I'll look back and reminisce on the days of double-posts when it does that weird grayed out thing they so often did... But we will all move on and think "God, I'm glad we changed to the new site".

      So as this site prepares to go that great big server in the sky (The Cloud?) , now it's time to say goodbye. I hate goodbyes.

      So I'll just say, "see you on the other side!"

      You heard that right! I'm a Cyber Soldier!

      ...what... yeah... but cyber-... yeah... okay... fine...

      I have just been informed that I am not a "Cyber Soldier," but a "Tech Guardian".

      That's right people! You can be the first of your friends to say you know one of the people who will be behind-the-scenes of RTX, hacking the mainframe, building a GUI interface in visual basic to track an IP address, and turning things off an on again!

      I will be your silent defender. I will be the hero this con needs. I am vengeance. I am the byte. I am Bitman! a Tech Guardian!

    • SOOO BUSY!

      4 years ago

      PeteG Sponsor

      It's been a while since I've posted or even really checked in on the site.

      So most recently I participated in a game jam for the HTC Vive (Steam's VR headset/controllers). It was awesome. Met some great people and learned a lot. Didn't finish my game in time for the demo night, but I plan to continue working on it over the next couple of weeks. I hope to have it done in the next couple of weeks. Speaking of the demo night, I ran into @JJ and Jenny there as well as some other friends from out of town just in to see the demos. Overall, it was a great weekend. But it obviously would have been better if I had finished my game.

      Which brings me to this journal's question: how do you learn new things as an adult and how do you direct your career path when your job is pushing you down a different specialty? It's clear that I'm still a little behind the curve with regards to some of the software and tools I need to use to develop in virtual reality. I need to catch up and now that I'm in the "working adult" phase of my life, I'm finding it difficult to find the time. The opportunities are all around me, but it's just a lack of time/energy. I need to know how to either steer my career down that path, so that I can learn to use the tools while getting paid, or I need to take away from my time with friends and family in order to focus on my desired career. It's rough. Right now it means I work about 15 hour days almost every day (9 hours of my job, 6 hours split between learning, coding, and other obligations). With a couple breaks for eating and the occasional beer with my roommate, I'm going to bed late and waking up exhausted every day. It's worth it, but I'm wondering if there's an easier way. Suggestions?

      Lots of manly love,
      Pete

      P.S. I will post my game to my website when I am done. Though it is created to be used on the HTC Vive, I will also be porting it to a custom setup of a Kinect V2 (Xbox One Kinect) sensor and Oculus. There will also likely be a build that is just for Oculus DK2. I'll post a link with instructions on here when I finish it.

    • Anime Matsuri

      4 years ago

      PeteG Sponsor

      Anyone going this weekend?

      And if so, do you have room on your floor for me for one night? Found out that I could go for Saturday and Sunday, so I'm trying to find a way to not pay a ton for 1 or 2 nights in a hotel. I am willing to split costs with someone. I don't need a bed (I have an inflatable mattress) so some floor space will do just fine. So if you're in the Houston area, or are going to be for Anime Matsuri, and if you have space, let me know!

    • I'm Streaming!

      PeteG Sponsor

      twitch.tv/phynalphaze

      Watch me struggle to learn the Razer Chroma SDK and listen to some sweet tunes!

      All done streaming for the night. I made a Whack-A-Mole game you play using just the lights on the Razer Blackwidow Chroma. Join me next time when I either try to expand upon that game or make a new program for the Chroma (I have one in mind, but I need to do some research first on how to do it).

    • Streaming

      4 years ago

      PeteG Sponsor

      I'm gonna start a new thing: streaming! Find me here at twitch.tv/phynalphaze!

      I will actually be streaming for my first time here in a just a minute. It won't be anything fun though: I'm going to stream myself coding.

      Now, I imagine no one would want to watch me just sit there and stare at my screen as I code. That's cool. I'll also be playing some music so it'll also be PhynalPhaze Radio for anyone who wants to tune in and listen.

      However, in the near future I'm going to start using this channel to stream as I code and test games for my many virtual reality devices including, but not limited to:

      -the Oculus Rift
      -the Leap Motion
      -the Microsoft Kinect
      -the KOR-FX

      So if you want to

      -see me make an ass out of myself as I bumble around in virtual reality
      -watch me rage quit while coding, or
      -just listen to some music

      feel free to stop by the stream.

      Or if you just want to talk, I'll keep chat open so I can read your messages. Stop by and say hi and tell me you're from Rooster Teeth! PLEASE! I'M DESPERATE FOR HUMAN CONTACT! DON'T LEAVE ME HERE ALONE!

      I'm going to try to make this at least a weekly thing. I want to turn my passion for virtual reality into a career, so by setting aside dedicated time every week, I can keep moving forward toward that goal. If you guys want to join me for the journey, that's awesome. If not, thanks for being supportive enough to get to the end of this post.

      Lots of manly love to all of you!
      -Pete

        I think I explained it right initially, but Lauren started counting differently and I was too many drinks in to care so I stuck with her explanation

        I hung out with Mega64 and they showed me the proper way to score. (in shuffleboard)

        I'm NewPhaze. My character I have played the most with is Wraithan, but I keep playing the beginning of every other story class's story so he's not really that high level right now. Hopefully I can begin playing more soon, but school and Navy stuff is just eating at my time.

        Yeah. The one in the Blue team shirt was just an example person of what they thought Kara did during her day. The "turned away guy" in the smiley13.gif tee shirt was them recalling seeing someone (again I'm pretty sure it is me Michael is talking about and in the podcast I'm sure Jack was talking about me)

        Edit: And as you can see from my profile picture, I was actually wearing my BCBW tee shirt

      I wish I was staying cool, but nope I work outside mostly. If one of the threads you follow is LFTO then all you missed was Some people got helped and some people didn't. But if you follow the My Little Pony thread I have no idea what is in there.

      Other than work I'm doing pretty good. There is a Communications and Networking job in the Marine reserves that I'm looking into, if I can ever get ahold of the recruiter. (You wouldn't think it would be that hard, but for some reason it is).
