Frequently Asked Questions
What time zone are you in?
Pacific Time. That’s UTC-8, or UTC-7 during the United States’ observation of daylight savings.
Do you like shorts?
Of course, they’re easy and comfy to wear! I just love my miniskirts more.
What graphics tablet do you have?
A Kanvas Artist 127. My father gave me this tablet many years ago and it serves me pretty well.
Do you have a Wii/Xbox/PS/etc?
I only have Nintendo consoles. To date, and in chronological order:
- Game Boy Advance
- DS lite
- Wii U
I also have a working SNES Mini (from the 90s, not the multi-game emulator that came out recently) I acquired long after they were off the main market.
What computer do you have? What is your computer’s specs?
My main computer (which is also the computer I stream from) is a self-built desktop with an AMD Ryzen 7, Radeon RX 580, and 32 GiB of RAM. My previous system (which is available as a backup) is also a self-built desktop with a water-cooled AMD FX-8320, Radeon RX 470, and 32 GiB RAM.
I also have a few other computers, but my main one is what people ask about all the time.
What markup/programming/etc. languages do you know/have experience with?
Want an exhaustive list? Okay…
- 80x86 ASM
BASH scripting(I’m pretty out of practice with this.)
|Android||Yes, I have a cell phone. How else would I mysteriously admin chats even when I’m offline?|
|The Linux Kernel||This needs no explanation.|
|Microsoft Windows 7||I got it for free.|
|Microsoft Windows 10||I got it for free too. Miraculously works quite well unlike all other encounters I’ve had with it.|
Art, Design, & Music
|Affinity Designer||Highly comparable to Adobe Illustrator. Much better price point too.|
|Aseprite||When I’m pixel pushing.|
|Paint.NET||Excellent for quick simple stuff or mock-ups.|
|Paint Tool SAI|
Music & Video
|OBS Studio||So you can actually see something when I stream!|
|PreSonus Studio One Artist||Came free with a VSTi I bought. Works pretty well for me, but the lact of VST support out of the box is an annoyance. (It’s like a $70 upgrade.)|
|Sekaiju||A nice little MIDI sequencer. Most of the time when I compose, I start here.|
|SynthFont 2||MIDI player with configurable software SoundFont support; been using it (and the first version) for over a decade.|
|Apache HTTP Server||Used it for years. Serves me quite well.|
|Atom||I used it to write up this very website!|
|Git||Made my life a LOT easier.|
|Programmer’s Notepad||Way more useful than Microsoft’s notepad.|
|Microsoft Visual Studio||Mainly used for compiling C and C++ stuff.|
|BASH||I think like it? I definitely use quite it a lot.|
|Chromium||I CAN HAZ INTERNETZ?|
|CMD.exe||Because I don’t always need to use bash.|
|ls||Unix folks will understand what I mean here.|
|Windows Explorer||If you think this is a web browser, you’re very, very WRONG.|
