State of the Emptyeye- March through May

It’s been awhile since I did one of these. Let’s get to it. First of all, I’ve started my new job. It’s the same title as my previous one–Systems Analyst/Programmer–but my actual work is quite different. Without getting too into specifics, my first big job is moving data in an Access database out of Access …

State of the Emptyeye- February/Early March

Let’s check in with how I’ve been doing of late, shall we? The Games I Beat In 2014 series continues to grow. It now has 17 entries, six of which are games I had never beaten before. The most recent (As of this writing) in the series, Metroid Fusion, was a fun, expected entry that …

State of the Emptyeye for January

So I should use this “blog” thing I have more often. Since I made a Resolutions Post early in January, let’s see how I’ve done with those so far! Lose Some Weight: This is generally going pretty well–though my rate of weight loss has slowed down, I’m a little over halfway to my weighing-147-pound goal …

Resolutions

2013 was not the best year, to say the least. As we start 2014, I am currently Unemployedeye, among other things. I was never one for making resolutions. But with this being a year of big transition, I figure this is as good a year as any to do so. So with that, my first …

Chubbyeye

So earlier this week, I weighed myself and found I weigh 163 pounds. This may not seem like a lot, until you consider the fact that I’m, in the words of Primus, “Standin’ tall at 5-foot-4″. As such, I’m trying to do something about it. First off, I’m trying to go to the gym several …

Well, This Rusted Quickly

I’ve very much neglected this blog of late, which is rather sad. Let’s start with some news. A couple months ago, I joined Rize Up Gaming, an organization dedicated to fighting racism/sexism/bullying within gaming communities, especially within MOBA communities. They also put on monthly charity marathons, which is mainly where I come in, as I’ve …

Introducing Sylvia’s Excellent Time Usurping Pugilists (S.E.T.U.P.)!

As I’ve mentioned previously, I recently downloaded Gamemaker Studio and was playing around with it, intending to make a Sylvia-centered Kung Fu remake (A Kung Fu Remix, if you will). Well, today I can present the first proof-of-concept of this idea, for Windows users. As I get more into how Gamemaker Studio actually works, a …

A New Poll for the New Year

As I write this, I have 955 Twitch.tv followers. What this means is that it’s time to start thinking about what I want to do for a thousand-follower appreciation stream. I have a number of options, and you can vote for up to three. I figure the top three or four vote-getters will win the …

*Looks Around, Notes Neglect*

Yeah. So you’ve probably noticed that my posting here has slowed down of late. This is basically my fault, and while I’d love to say that it’s because I’ve been busy–which is, to a degree true–the main truth of the matter is that I’m just lazy. At some point during 2013, I plan to update …

This Is Your Monthly Update

So there! It’s been a busy month in the Emptyeye household. The big news is that Mrs. Emptyeye and myself are now cat owners. Meet Mario the Cat. Mario is an 8-month old, 8.5 pound domestic long-haired feline. He is also very cute. He can do something wrong, like scratch at the couch, and then …
