Brotherhood and the Quest for a New Computer...
But anyway, before I get on that tangent, let's talk about the real important thing first, which is...I have finally gotten around to reading more of the awesome epic, Brotherhood, by former BZPower staff member, Janus. And I personally recommend that you all give it a read and if you can, give it a review because it definitely deserve some.
Especially considering it reminds me of why I love the library forums here because people are able to take what they want from BIonicle and build their own worlds from it. Its great and its why I want to try and get into habit of reading more literature here again I won't be joining any Critic clubs though since I don't have time for them because I work like over forty hours a week and I really don't want the pressure of having to write a quality review in a week's time. Beside, I am more of reviewer than critic, so I really don't fit in with their crowd honestly. *shrugs*
Speaking of reviews though, I am planning on reviewing Brotherhood at some point. I am, well, still debating on whether or not I should wait until he has posted all the chapters of this epic before I review it. Hm...I kind thinking of doing what I originally planning to do, which is review five chapters at a time.
I think the biggest issue with me trying to review this though is that my normal way of reviewing stories here, usually involves me print them out because I like to write mark ups on stories and denote certain things that I should focus on. Now this story is about 54 pages in Microsoft Word. So yeah, printing this out would not be ideal, especially if I wait to do a mega review of the whole thing in its entire. Hm...I guess I could do it the five chapter at time review way since that way I only have to print a bit of it at time. *shrugs* What do you folks think I should do? Just wondering.
Alright, moving on from that, I guess I can talk about the quest for a new computer. Really, there's not much say about this except well, that I am getting to point that I am just about to settle with just any new computer out there now (Even one with...Windows 8...) because the issues that I having with this one are just about getting on my last nerves, especially the shut down issues. So yeah, hopefully in a week or so, I'll be getting a new computer finally.
Will it be able do everything that I want? Probably not since I probably going settle with whatever computer that I find with my minimum requirements (Somewhat cheap price, 8 GB of RAM, 1 TB hard-drive, and preferably a non-Intel graphics card.). *shrugs*
Alright, that's about it for entry. Well, I guess I can ask again if anyone is interested in one of these BZPower shirts. If you are, please do leave a comment saying you are interested in them.
Hm...I guess I could ask this as well. Does anyone here know how good bus transportation is in Virginia? Just wondering because I was thinking of using my one week's pay vacation during the summer to maybe take a trip down there to take in some sights there. Like go to some museums and maybe check out Washington DC since I only been there once during a school field trip and all I remember during my visit there is checking out the Lincoln Memorial.
Then again, I don't know since if I were to take that trip, I would probably be by myself, so I am not sure how comfortable I would be exploring a new place like that without anyone I know with me. *shrugs*
Okay, I think I rambled here long enough, so I am going call this entry. Thanks for taking the time to read this, folks. And I hope you all have a good day. Talk to later, BZPers.
