Every month this year there has been a flash sale on the PlayStation Store.   Think this is a good thing.   Much like past sales there are some good deals to be had.  All so like past sales there are games that have been on there before.  Not sure if any of them are going for a better price or not.  You can see for yourself > here.   The sale starts today (March 24, 2017) and ends on the 27.

Ferry_Corsten_Right_Of_WayThis weeks musical throwback Thursday song is an old favourite.  It is Rock Your Body Rock by Ferry Corsten.   He has been making music since the 90’s and is still on the go.  The song is off the 2003 album Right of Way.  Not sure when I first heard it.  But think it was when we had a free preview of BPM TV.  Which is no longer on the air.  You can give it a listen/watch > here or below.

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands

Have about eighteen hours into  Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands.  Have played single player as well as some co-op.  The game works great both way.  However co-op is a lot more fun.  This games keeps surprising me with all the detail.  While playing co-op.  We were all over exploring the huge map.  Every part of the world was very different than the last.  Seeing the salt flats for the first time was pretty amazing.  The handling of the motorcycles and cars has improved a lot over the beta.   Pretty sure there will be patches on the way to make the game even better.  So far having a blast playing the game.  The gaol is to collect everything in the game and do every mission.   May takes months but that’s all right.

Rode_VideoMicroWhile looking into making regular YouTube videos.  Audio is the biggest hurled I think I have.  Been looking at microphones.  There are all kinds out there.  For the most part all the good ones cost lots of money.   Want to get a shotgun microphone.  This is the best option for the type of videos I would like to make.  The brand Rode are one of best out there.  Of course they cost lots of money.  The found out they make a smaller, more affordable one.  That is designed for DSLR cameras and phones.  It is called VideoMicro.  As I am typing this (March 17, 2017) Amazon.ca is asking $79.00.  That seems like a great prices.  But first I will have to looking into get a camera that it will hook up to.

Open_Live_WriterEver since I started blogging used Windows Live Writer. This program lets your write posts offline then upload them when ready.  Now that I have a new computer looked into installing.   Was very disappointed to find out it was now longer available to download (May be?).  The end support back in January (2017).  Thought I was out of luck.  Until is seen Open Live Writer.  Its basically the same program.  Just open source.  Every thing looks and works the same.  The best part it even found all my daft files with out telling were to find them.  It must use the same file structure.  So if you are new blogging or getting into.  This is a great program.  Click the link above to find out more.

Windows 10

Windows_10_Box_ArtBought myself a new computer the other day.  I came with Window 10 Home edition.  The computer I had before this one run Vista.  So there is a big differences between the two.  Have used a bit of Windows 7, 8, and 8.1 so had  some idea what to expect.  When 10 first came out there was a lot of backlash.  That was back in 2015.  Since then there is a lot of help out there.  On what features to turn off and the like.

So far am liking it.  It may looks different but at the core it is still Windows.  It is not that hard to figure out or use.
