Downtime

I didn’t get to play the MicroMillion’s as I had hoped and planned, due to some complications with a dentist appointment and some serious pain thereafter. I’m still going back to the dentist (just came from an appointment today) doing root canals and a lot of maintenance…

I’ve played quite a few Spins and some SNG’s, but nowhere near the amount I’ve been planning. No stream, but I’ve upgraded all my equipment, adding a fourth monitor, new macro keyboard (to use with OBS and twitch).
Link to my keyboard. I’ve been using my Logitech MX Master mouse and am very happy with that for the moment.

As for streaming… I am having a real hard time getting going… I so want to stream for hours ‘n hours, but when I feel like starting, my brain shuts me down and tells me: “You’re seriously going to stream playing micro SNG’s and MTT’s??” I end up maybe playing a few spins and then watch some poker related videos. I have a lot of mental work to do to get going!

Anyways; I’d love to hear from you, any feedback is good feedback!

Quickie

Hey guys, just a quick post from me today.
We’re just starting our summer holidays and I’m working through it, aiming for an August break or something.

As you can see I’ve changed the template for the site, selecting a simpler layout and a bit sleeker design. That’s about it since my last post, haven’t made it to the forest and certainly not made any of the things I want to..

All I’ve done is brushing up on my twitching and played a bunch of micro spins on PokerStars (in a blowup, no care about the results, fashion). +/- break even streak and not a care in the world. I’ll be playing many more and I’m eyeing some MTT’s as well, never know.. might get lucky right?

Anywhoo.. Follow me on social media and head on over to my YouTube channel. Creating more content these very days!

Long overdue

Hey guys! How’re ya’ll doing?
So, it’s been almost a year since I last wrote something and that’s about to change! I’m really eager to get back into writing along side doing the things I’m writing about. Be it woodworking, forestry, making, modifying, anything you can think of! (Get it? )

This post will just be a semi-quick entry to let you know I’m still around and thinking of new things.
One of the very first things I’m doing is getting back into YouTub’ing; Projects will be documented and videos will be edited for publication. I have set my sights at a couple of simple projects that will get me started, and I have a dream of getting started back in the forest in the near future.

Forestry;
I very recently went and bought myself a new Stihl chainsaw (a very nice and powerful MS 362 C-M). This was purchased with my sights set on getting back into the forest and also I’m getting a chainsaw mill, here’s a link. My chainsaw came with a 15″ bar, but I’m getting a 36″ bar and chain, as the stock is far to small for a mill.
I also have two other chainsaw that I’ going to try and get back in running condition, at least one of them. I don’t quite remember which models they are, but I think it’s an MS 260 and a 0xx series (I’ll find the chainsaw and update). Normally I do all repairs and such myself, but these two are in such a shape that I’m turning them over to a licensed mechanic. The 260 has a “rubber joint” that’s busted in deep in the saw and I’ll just rather not botch the job.

Here’s a cap. of one of the small projects I’m doing, getting back into YouTube and making.
It’s currently in the idea stage, but I’m hoping to try it out as early as this very week, fingers crossed.

 

Another thing on my TODO list is re-vamping this site! It’s just in the #want stage, but a new template is desperately needed (I feel). This is something that’s just cosmetic, but I’ve been thinking about it for a long time. Let’s get it going shall we!

YouTube

I just wanted to make a quick post today, because I only realized this last night.
My subscriber count just passed 100 subs!

Now, I know this is just a drop in the ocean, but for me it’s an achievement.
I hope to produce a new video or two, just as soon as I know what I’ll make.

Learning new things

I never thought I’d say or do this, but I’m learning SketchUp for making detailed plans for my projects!
I’m not going to write a long post on this now, just thought I’d post a quick one with my first “sketch”.

Entry tableThis is a “semi-accurate” model of what I’m going to make for my entry. It’s a shallow table on which I hope to find a bowl or basket to place, to hold keys and what-not.

Notice there are no  legs in the back. I’m planning to fasten it to the wall so it’s actually a mix of a shelf and a table.

I’ve made a drawer-front in the sketch, but I’ve not yet decided if it’s a false front or an actual drawer. Decisions, decisions…

NB! I’ve started an article on Defiance.no which I’ll update continuously  as the project proceeds.

Apologies

Short post today, to say I’m very sorry for not having posted or made another video. I have bee a bit busy trying to get some Christmas things done, having acquired a new rent contract and I’m learning new (and old) things for work.

My educations is auto mechanic and a degree as an ICT manager. I work for one of Norway’s largest private security companies as a consultant, and I was asked if I could help with some database work. I haven’t worked with databases for a very long time, but I immediately said yes, as I was very happy to get some “new” things to work with.

Anyhoo, I’ve been busy trying to brush up on my SQL, using Toad for MySQL and I’m working on the database for this very site. Hope to get some time to maybe make a video soon, but I’m concentrating on getting as good as I can get with the database stuff.

Thank you for your patience, and I’ll see you shortly.

Weekend update

Well, I didn’t get another project up for the weekend. I thought I might get it done with my hand tools at home, but I really do have to use my wood shop to get the parts. I only have to do 10-15 minutes work in the shop and because of that, I haven’t gone. I like to have several hours of work, as it’s a bit of a drive to get there.

I’m thinking about a project to do this coming week, most likely it will be another sewing project. I would very much like to hear from you, either in comments or by mail geir [at] geirandersen [dot] com. Let me know what you’d like to see, doesn’t matter what it is. Woodworking, sewing, crafting, anything you can think of! (Get it?? My slogan, both on my business cards and on this blog.)

My first project video!

So, I spent some time yesterday shooting, editing and creating my first ever project video, made in a how-to style. I wanted to test out my new camera and microphone, but quickly found the microphone to not suit my needs. It was far too sensitive for my camera and environment, and picked up all sorts of static.

Here’s a link to the video, published on YouTube. Everything about this video is also me learning the stuff while doing it. I’ve never really sewn anything from a pattern, never used an external microphone, new camera, new lighting, never done voice over… It was a real fun experiment.
