The diverse threats we face are increasingly cyber-based. Much of America’s most sensitive data is stored on computers. We are losing data, money, and ideas through cyber intrusions. This threatens innovation and, as citizens, we are also increasingly vulnerable to losing our personal information.
Today, I’m working on relaunching Unlimited Fan Fiction, and after I’m done doing that I’m considering doing a live stream for an hour or so as I didn’t do one yesterday (either before or after working at Wal-Mart). It’s a good day for staying inside as the weather outside isn’t very pleasant for outside activities.
I’d better get to work, so until the next time I post, take care! 😉
I was planning on streaming some Software Inc, but due to the fact that Bebo wasn’t able to detect the game, I instead streamed more of my Surviving Mars game for my live stream today. I may stream more this evening, but I haven’t yet decided on that. I do want to play some modded Minecraft though, and probably will do some reading as well.
PlayerCrunch is almost ready for new members and when that is the case, I’ll be using it as my “sponsor” for my Twitch channel streams. Instead of adding things that I’m not ready for (because I can’t afford everything), instead, I’ll only be adding in features when I can add them fully. Yes, it means that the community may not have as many features as others, but it will run more smoothly (and new features will have more meaning).
I’m using a dual-monitor setup now for my streaming. It will allow me to see my Bebo control panel on the secondary monitor while I am also playing the game on my main monitor. In the control panel, I’ll be able to see Twitch chat and events, and control sound levels and the various scenes. Today’s the first run of this setup at 10 am, so come to Twitch and watch the stream and chat with me (if you like what you see, follow my channel there to be notified when I start streaming by email).
I have decided to put off grocery shopping until tomorrow morning despite my decision to get up early today to get it done before my live stream. It was an easy decision after I saw how little money I had left in my checking account, and needed to transfer some money from my savings to get everything on my shopping list. Add in the fact that it was almost 8:30 am when I made the decision and I start live streaming at 10 am on the days I stream (like today), and you can see where I needed to manage my time more efficiently.
Tomorrow is a day off from streaming (and it takes a day for the money to transfer between a savings account and a checking account) so I’ll have the time before work in the morning to go grocery shopping without having to rush. Yeah, I won’t have my yogurt or waffles for my breakfast tomorrow, but I can go without for one day. 😉
I’m no longer streaming Minecraft on Twitch because I believe that watching me play it is not helping me gain followers on Twitch. Instead, I’m playing games like Surviving Mars where there should be more interesting stuff and thus more exciting for people to want to watch my stream.
