How PC technology has helped the world

The computer is usually referred to as the revolutionary machine that has changed everything in such little time. PC technology is changed rapidly with time and the use of computers is not limited to just companies anymore. They are used so readily for plain entertainment purpose. Lots of people play video games on their desktop because using a keyboard and mouse seems handier to them. On the other hand, the graphics are more realistic. There are lots of games available for PC and according to some experts, the games will be developed mainly for PC in future. This will be the new future but it has many good/bad things also. A gaming PC is able to provide good performance if the processor and graphics card is optimized. Video Editing PCs Many people think that a...

Civilization VI is amazing

Civilization VI is amazing

Just wanted to write a quick update for the blog and talk about Civilization VI. I don’t think I mentioned it in my typical day post, but from time to time I enjoy playing video games on my desktop at home. I recently picked up Civilization VI from a sale over the holiday and it has been nothing short of fantastic. I should also note that I haven’t played Civilization, or any PC game recently for that matter, in a long long time. The last Civ I played was probably Civ IV, so I skipped the 5th entry. A lot has changed in this game. It looks fantastic, for one. It also runs really well on my laptop, and I always have to appreciate developers that put in the work to optimize their games for those that don’t have bulky $2000 gaming computers. I have...

Civilization VI: Rise and Fall Expansion Hype!

Civilization VI: Rise and Fall Expansion Hype!

I wanted to update the blog on my gaming-related news. I am finally getting into the Rise and Fall expansion for Civilization VI. I have been playing the game on and off since that post in December because of my work and just being really busy. But now I finally purchased the expansion and look forward to playing it. I’ve embedded the announcement trailer they posted because it is habit for me to watch trailers of games right before I play them. It helps keep the hype fresh.

How’s the site design?

How’s the site design?

Hey everyone, this is kind of just a meta-blog post. I wanted to ask for feedback on how the website looks. I think it looks awesome and I am so thankful for my friend, Jason, who helped set the site up with me. Great friends are worth keeping, guys! Just some wise words. I do love the overall look of it. My logo was done by myself, so excuse its simplicity. But I think it fits well with the theme of things. The background image was also a photograph I took myself of one of my computer builds. I set the focus primarily on the video card, since there is no gaming power without the card, right? 🙂 I look forward to adding more content to the site through the year, as long as my readers keep reading. Do send feedback, though. I’d also love to hear about what...

A typical day

A typical day

I do get a few emails once in a while that ask a little bit more about my life. I thought writing about a typical day for me would be an awesome way to share that with you guys. Again, I do appreciate everyone that contacts me. I love all my readers and I am glad that my blog has picked up in a relatively short time. I usually wake up early in the morning, say something like 7am. It has always been a habit to wake up this early. I also should mention I do it without an alarm whatsoever. I love waking up naturally in the morning, so I have trained myself to just wake up whenever it’s time. I work at 10am every day anyway so I have some runtime if I ever get late, which never happens. I get a morning tea from Starbucks and bring along my laptop, which thanks...

Why I got into sound engineering

Why I got into sound engineering

For those that don’t know or didn’t read this page, I used to do a bunch of sound engineering for a band called The Long Winters. Now I am the director of technology for a great firm and handle a multitude of hardware. But it all started when I was playing with my electronic keyboard back when I was just starting college. I had the classic MD-2000. Playing around with it was really exciting, as I kept working on different sounds. That’s actually when I thought I should go into music engineering. Not because I loved music, but because I liked the different sounds my keyboard could make. I connected the keyboard to the computer I got for my birthday and got to work with some programs. FL Studio was the cheapest option at the time, and it still...
