If anyone cares to know, I have been away from many months to a few years... oops.
But, I have been working on a lot of YouTube videos, specifically Let's Play's and reviews, so you can imagine how much video editing has taken up my time and energy.
I feel bad that I haven't been in contact with you guys on the forums... I haven't even watched the show in a long time, that I have not even started season 6 yet, so you can imagine how far behind I am in the fandom.
I have also been
I REALLY BIT THE BIG ONE!
NOTE: My laptop was discontinued apparently...
i5 - 2450m
GeForce GT 520MX
1TB 5400rpm HDD
My laptop started to get the Black Screen of Death, it couldn't boot, so tried different solutions.
Samsung Recovery Solution 5
Apparently, SRS5 made it even more worse; when I tried to do a complete restore, my laptop now has the "BOOTMGR is missing" prompt.
I was in the United States, at the Settle Inn!
What I have got so far:
DK Bongo Drums for GameCube
Donkey Kong Jungle Beat for GameCube
New Super Mario Bros 2 for 3DS
Jurassic Park on NES, SNES, and GameBoy
Godzilla for GameBoy
Resident Evil Code: Veronica for Dreamcast
Michael Jackson's Moonwalker for Genesis
Zombies Ate My Neighbors for SNES
Spider-Man Vs. Kingpin for Sega CD
E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial for Atari 2600
Donkey Kong for Atari 2600
Mario's Time Machine for SNES
My 500 Watt power supply came in today, but not my graphics card yet! (It says it's still in Toronto, ON)
Just to let you know, my graphics card is going to be the ASUS GTX650-E-1GD5, hopefully this is enough to please me.
Even though I already bought the power supply, is 500 Watts enough to power both the motherboard and the card?
(This card gets power from the motherboard, no slot for the power supply cable)
Old PSU = 300 W
New PSU = 500 W
GPU card power required = 75 W
I finally got it to work!
BTW, I had to lose my secondary D: and recovery partition in the process, I had no other choice.
I wiped out the entire HDD, then did a whole fresh installation! I was praying to God that this whole process I went through would succeed!
The only downside (which I don't care much for) is that I have to get back all my iTunes and Steam stuff!
Thank you to Samsung for allowing me to make the DVD full of drivers which I needed for the sweet, sweet internets
I got some moar video games.
A few posters:

I also got a kazoo, cuz I never used one before!

- Little Mermaid
- Donald Duck (I realized I got a duplicate, but whatever... It was only 10 b
I saw John De Lancie, but didn't have anything Discord for him to sign.

Just watched the 2017 MLP movie on Netflix for the first time, and it was actually pretty decent for a children's movie.
I seem to keep finding myself coming back to this place every so few months to a few years LOL
The show just keeps being interesting every time I decide to watch it again, I guess I will forever be a brony, not that there is anything wrong with that.
Anyways, still been busy doing part-time work, surviving a pandemic, doing Twitch livestreams, making YouTube vid
My current laptop is working fine now, after a chkdsk (2 bad clusters) and a defrag overnight, but I really REALLY hope my laptop can last long enough through school.
If all comes to worse:
I wanna get a new laptop, but I am still cautious about stuff that works on Windows 8. I still wanna use stuff like Steam and iTunes, but I see mixed results from a Google search.
But on the other hand, I wanna be able to use Windows 7 Home Premium again on a new "bad cluster"-free hard drive. Tho
I am sure I have annoyed enough people with my obsession, but I wanted to show off a collection of releases that Shout! Factory has done over the years!
The Power Rangers DVD is signed by both the Black and Blue rangers!
He thinks I am not even a brony yet, because I am not doing what the "freak bronies" do. (Can't say what they do, because it is gross. You should know anyways...)
I think I should ignore him.
Yes, I put this in a blog, because it was too long to put in a status update.
SeaTools looks like it failed a diagnostic test and froze on "outer scan"...
My bro is trying my laptop to see if anything happens with him...
Let's see how it turns out...
It might be time to replace a laptop hard drive, that has no bay to access it in. I might have to take to a computer repair technician now...
Hopefully if I have to, the cost of hdd installation and etc. doesn't add up to a lot.
Why do computers hate me? Why, oh why, oh why...
I just got my laptop back from a computer place, and the hard drive has been replaced!
The only downside, which I don't care too much about, is I have to reinstall Steam and iTunes.
Now I will see how this turns out!
I finished watching Series 1 and 2, and I am happy to know this exists, and also happy to finally watch it!
I love his (the Doctor) attitude, he always seems to know what to do no matter what the situation.
I love the way he talks and acts towards others. One minute he is mad, the next he is as calm as ever. It's hilarious.
As for the companion(s), they are awesome. They get to travel with the Doctor and have some fun adventures through space and time. ...I am jealous.
The TARDIS on
I don't know what it is but yesterday morning and night my wireless speed was acting up, the speed NOT SIGNAL kept fluctuating. But only if I plug it in directly through ethernet, it maintains a constant speed. It wasn't like this before!
I use wireless devices from my bedroom, since it would be very impractical to have wires going all over the house. Plus my iPad, 3DS, etc. don't use Ethernet...
The wifi was fine when I came home from work yesterday though, it also is working fine this mornin
I made a video from years ago, but now recently got blocked everywhere because of the theme song I placed at the end.
I had to remove the song in order for the video to be visible again?
Does anyone have any proof besides this that Sony owns the theme song rights?
My first chkdsk didn't find anything, neither did Malwarebytes...
I am currently running a second chkdsk at the moment.
My laptop symptoms are:
After a few minutes, my HDD light is solid, then when I try anything that involves accessing the HDD (opening Windows Explorer, opening My Computer, Defrag) it freezes to the point where I have to hard reset. I could still move the mouse, but that doesn't help me very much.
I also can't open task manager or anything else...
It's freezing very often on me at the moment...
I am currently running chkdsk on it... So far it found a bad cluster, where ddraw.dll is located...
I have a feeling this isn't good...
Could someone please lighten the mood for me?
Update: looks like chkdsk found another bad cluster: PABBD0~1.CAT
I hope this isn't too bad...
Looks like more bad sectors appeared on my hdd, hopefully, I can use it for a little longer...
Here is the chkdsk for anyone interested:
Checking file system on C:
The type of the file system is NTFS.
A disk check has been scheduled.
Windows will now check the disk.
CHKDSK is verifying files (stage 1 of 5)...
399360 file records processed. File verification completed.
994 large file records processed.
I don't really know how else to say it.
Laptop feels weird, but still functional for Steam, iTunes, and school use.
I shouldn't be worried about a thing... right?
Also, Avast was slowing my boot time, so I replaced with AVG.
I AM NO LONGER DEAD! (that's nice...)
Anyways, I am still a brony and a part of the community so don't worry your head.
We had a few people leave, but I will do my best to keep loving the show and the community no matter what. Nothing is going to make me leave. I am here to stay, and that is that.
Well, I got that out of the way.
I recently got back full force into Pokemon again! Thanks to fansubs/Japanese raws for Kanto season! (and also PokeAwesome! THANK YOU EGORAPTOR!)
I just g
I can also do it for free.
I have experience in Sony Movie Studio 13 Platinum, CyberLink PowerDirector 12, and VideoPad Editor.
I have made many PMV's, AMV's, parodies, and gaming videos.
Not much of a resume, but this is the best I can give you.
I do other things in life, but I just wanted to have a way to use my hobby. I currently run a gaming channel for myself without any profit involved.
Are there any people from or near Winnipeg, MB, Canada? Because C4Con is coming again this year!
Fortunately, I will be going there and maybe getting more pins like I did last year! (BTW, I have a Rainbow Dash pin from last year!)
I will probably be wearing my three pins while I am there, so maybe if you see anybody with a ReBoot, 20% cooler, and Mario Starman pin, that might just be me! :)
See ya soon!
