    If you didn't know, I work from home.  Specifically in Salt Lake City.  I have a little office in my basement and I'm all alone all day.  It's rather lonely.


    So, I went out yesterday and decided to find a coworker to really inspire me to build great stuff for the RT community.  He is all signed up on RT and is a first member already.

  • Early Warning Signs

    Well, yesterday I was quite excited about our new employee here at Rooster Teeth.  I had high hopes that he was really going to get things moving for community.  But, his first full day on the job has proved to be not very productive.  In fact, he hasn't gotten anything done at all!


    A few minutes ago, i really got on him to get some work done and this was his reaction:

  • Why?

    Why do I keep coming back?


    Only like 2 of my friends ever update journals. I never post. I barely read anything on here anymore. Been debating just deleting my profile, but I'm too much of a sentimental being for that. I may just take it off my bookmarks list so I stop clicking in and being sad. 


    Shoot me a message on Facebook, or Xbox Live, or hangouts, or whatever if the site ever gets better.


    I would say it's been a great 12 years, but it was a great 10 years for sure.

    Today is Rosh Hashanah, the New Year according to the Jewish calendar. May this new year bring you and your family joy, happiness, and peace.

    It may be odd to think about a new year right now for most of us, as we are so engorged in the Gregorian calendar that the new year is still several months away. But a lot of the things we traditionally try to do at that time (change habits, make resolutions, make positive life changes, enjoy some nice champaign) are things can and should happen all the time.  So think of today as us Jews giving you a second chance at all of those New Years Resolutions you had for 2017.

    DiMono It's Back Baby!

    My internet's back on, which means I can reasonably spend time on it again. It was just one part of a cavalcade of weirdness I've been drowning in for the last week. Here are the hits:


    You might remember in my last journal I mentioned some weirdness in my shoulder. Here's what happened. On Thursday, I woke up and everything was fine. Did a bit of light stretching, sat down to do some stuff at the computer, and things were great. When I decided it was time for breakfast, I opened the fridge and reached in for the bread, and suddenly my right shoulder was just a giant ball of pain. I can move around over 20lbs at a time with it, but apparently reaching for the bread was the tipping point. I iced it, saw my doctor, took some Motrin, and waited. After the pain went down I was able to localize it, and as close as I can tell it's a strain in the tendon where the upper pec inserts into the shoulder joint. I can contract the muscle comfortably, but when I stretch it too far it hurts. So I'm avoiding stretching it too far. I can do most of my daily things just fine at this point, but every once in a while it reminds me it's there. It's getting better, and I'm hoping it will be healed by the weekend.


    My internet died on Friday. So I brought my BluRay player into my office and hooked it up to my second monitor, and went through a bunch of movies and seasons 1 and 2 of The Collector when I wasn't writing. Last night I watched Airheads before bed. I didn't even know I had that movie. This morning I tried to finish up season 2 of The Collector, but for some reason my BluRay player isn't sending the video feed up the HDMI cable any more. It sends the turning-on screen, but everything after that is blackness. My RCA audio feed is fine, it's just the HDMI video that's messed up - but only mostly. So I had to watch the last episode on my laptop instead. I was considering keeping the BluRay player hooked up in here, but if it's not going to work properly then I can't do that. At least it waited until the morning I got my internet back before misbehaving.


    Having more time on my hands than usual, I finally got around to wiring up an improvement to my desk setup. I'd bought a 4-way USB splitter over a year ago, with the intention of attaching it to the side of my desk along with a USB extension cable, to give me more ports on my laptop. It's set up now, and seems to be working fine. However, when I plug my cell phone into it, it tells me it's charging, but the charge never goes up. And I can't use it to transfer files back and forth for some reason. It shows up as accessible in Windows Explorer, but I can't see anything in it. But I can use the debug features to aid in my web development work. So it works ...kind of.


    In weird but good news, I'm not entirely sure why, but in the last few days I've seen massive speed gains from my abs challenge. A few days ago my time was over 26 minutes. Sunday it was 25:45. Monday it was 25:07. Then yesterday it was 24:16. This follows after a gradual 20-30 seconds/day improvement pace I'd been seeing for a week - suddenly it just started getting much faster. My abs are also more sore now than they've been in the last 19 days, which makes sense. There are still 11 more sessions left, and I'm hoping all of this increased strength will translate to growth over that time. Then I'll give them a break and focus mainly on other things. I also added in some upper body work yesterday, to make it a proper workout rather than just abs. The muscles I added? Shoulders. Because they were the only upper body muscles I was confident I could work without aggravating my pulled tendon in my shoulder area. Go figure. I also did my lower back, because don't skip your lower back.


    Oh, and also it's unseasonably warm and humid in Toronto right now, and I've already put my air conditioners away. So my apartment has been 80ºF and 60+% humidity for the last week. It should go down again ...next Wednesday. In the meantime, it's only going to get hotter. I don't want to hook my air conditioners back up again for so short a time period, but I might have to. In the meantime, it's open windows and fans.


    So anyway, that's what I've been dealing with for the last week or so. I am so looking forward to the weekend. What have you guys been up to?

  • Get Queue Alerts with @RTXQueues

    1 day ago

    MrArcys

    We're taking @RTXLines across the pond to RTX London! Introducing @RTXQueues!


    Hypothetical Situation: Let's say you've been chillin' in the Expo Hall when it hits you that the Achievement Hunter Panel is about to start in the Main Panel room. "Oy, I bet the line's already capped," you say out loud, drawing stares from the people around you. It'd be great if there was some way to check the status of the lines at all the panel rooms around RTX, right?

    Well there is... and it's @RTXQueues!


    @RTXQueues is the official RTX Twitter account that will keep you up to date on line happenings during the show! Are there empty seats for Lazer Team panel? We got you. Has the line been capped for the RWBY panel in Main Panel room? We'll let you know.


    There are a few ways to use @RTXQueues! First, you should know that text and/or data rates may apply (that's between you and your carrier). Second, you'll need to follow the account (duh). Then do the following:


    1) Setup Mobile App Alerts
    Do you have the official Twitter app on your phone? Good. The easiest way to get alerts is through the app. Here's how you do that:
    *Go to the @RTXQueues Twitter profile
    *If you're on a mobile phone, click the star icon next to the follow button. You've correctly setup alerts if the icon is yellow. (Picture of what it looks like)
    *If you are on a computer, click the gear icon next to the follow button, then click Turn on mobile notifications. (Picture)


    2) Setup SMS Text Alerts (Optional)
    Large events can overwhelm local cell phone data networks making browsing and, in our case, slow delivery of line alerts. FEAR NOT! You can have Twitter text you alerts over SMS, which uses the more reliable voice network. Here's how you do that:

    **Please Note: Only three UK Mobile Networks support Twitter SMS: Orange, 3, and Sure.
    *On your computer, click on your profile picture in the upper right hand of your profile page, then click Settings. (Picture)
    *Then, on the left hand side of the Settings page, click the Mobile link. (Picture)
    *Type your number into the Phone Number box. Click Continue. (Picture)
    *Twitter will text you a validation code. Type that validation code into the box provided. Click Activate phone. (Picture)
    *Lastly, under Text Notifications, check the box next to Tweets from people you've enabled for mobile notifications.
    *Click Save changes. (Picture)


    That's it! We hope that you'll find @RTXQueues helpful during the show! We'll see you at RTX London!

    *Standard data fees and text messaging rates may apply based on your plan with your mobile phone carrier.

    I seem to be in a two-day per post streak....Maybe I should post earlier in the day before I get so tired...


    So-On line research continues as does mental composition trial and error contemplations. 


    Yesterday was my usual day to meet with an artist friend and go paint, which we did. This week we went to the shores of Oneida Lake. 


    There were a bunch of seagulls and geese on the shore

    There were a few other folks around that day and I tried to capture them (figuratively)

  • Update.

    TyBracamonte Ty

    Okay the last couple days have been crazy amazing. My Godparents visited from San Antonio and we joined them on vacation for the day. They haven't seen me since I was one and for hanging out with a bunch of Old(er) people I had so much fun! We took them to Bisbee (Which if you ever get the chance is 9000 times better than Tombstone) and to the most amazing little dinner, It's tight next to the old Bisbee mine that goes down almost a mile into the earth and two miles wide.  After which we walked around all the old shops and stores, if you have never seen Old Bisbee the streets are all slanted and a really good exercise. I even got to have a beer at my dad's old Hangout "St Elmo's Bar" and when were in there we ran into a group of people filming a movie and even got the opportunity to be background extras. 


    It was an awesome day other than being ripped off by a knife dealer that is, all though I'll admit I should have known the markup would be high in a tourist town. Anyways when we got back to the house my package had arrived from Rooster Teeth! It was my first RT merch purchase I made and I am not disappointed. I got an RT V-neck, a House Achievement hunter shirt, an Achievement Hunter flag, and an Achievement Hunter Silipint. The only thing I wanted but couldn't get was a H&H shirt because they were sold out of large shirts.  The shirts are so damn comfy and the Flag looks amazing over my desk. 


    Oh and also the large shirt thing is a big deal for me considering they are the first large size shirts I've bought in five years. I've lost close to about twenty pounds since August I'm  doing a fast type diet where I skip eating two days a week. Since I've started my headaches have died down and I've been feeling more energetic.


    And last but certainly not least I'm saving for a new computer. I was going to get an Xbox One X but considering they are sold out already I'm going to use the money I'm making right now to start buying parts. It shouldn't take long though considering I just won two hundred dollars on a Scratchers' ticket the other day. I guess everything is working out as of lately and with any Luck my luck will continue. Well I really miss talking to you guys so I want to post more often (If anyone does read these/) Well stay awesome everyone and I hope you all have an awesome day tomorrow.   caboose caboose caboose


    Oh Also I'm moving to Austin in 2020!

Two!  RWBYCSEFL (how is that for an acronym?) is gearing up not only for a game night this Saturday at 5pm Eastern (details here) but ICE SKATING on Sunday at 12!  Who even knew that it was possible in Florida?! Go join the fun here!


    RoosterSpeak: Our friends at RS are awesome.  And they want you to be awesome with them too!  Join em after the RT Radio show for more tunes, starting at 7:30 pm Central or Sunday for a mercy-less WWE watch party!  Sorry, no healers allowed for this fight!

Join em tonight at 7pm Central on the Killing floor, Saturday for some Overwatch at 7 Central, (see the OW joke comes around again!) or Sunday while they leave you for dead again at 7! 



    Wow, that's a LOT of plans going on this weekend and beyond!  Are you attending any of them?  Let us know and share with your friends and fellow community members so they know too!


    Is there anything we missed? A community event we should have given a shout out to?  Let us know!


    We love you!
