Another trip home

Living in Montreal is a blast, but every so often I make the trip home to see friends and family. This trip though, is a little different. Yes I will be seeing friends and family, but I will also have the pleasure of seeing a friend perform at her 3rd CD release party.

Over the last decade or so I have had the pleasure of watching Danielle Allard’s career take flight.  When I first met up with Danielle through her sister, a long time friend of mine, she was the lead singer and song writer for a local band: Far From The Trees.…

Far Cry 5 Midway Through and a Rant

I am about 20 hours into the game and I am about 50% complete so this will be considered a Midway-Recap as I have not actually completed the game.

NOTE: There are spoilers in this post… if you have not played the John and Jacob areas of the map, I would suggest maybe not continuing.

First I want to rant a little as I have been reading a few reviews that I think are a little ass-backward when it comes to one thing.

RANT – In game money and Microtransactions:

This topic is probably one of the most mentioned dissatisfiers of the game. …

Update on Computer Situation.

Matthew 0 Comments

Last year I wrote a post about the fact I was gonna try to build a new computer to replace my old one. Sadly I was finding it very hard to save up the amount needed living paycheck to paycheck. So I opted for Crowd Funding using a site called Go Fund Me… Sadly after 3 weeks I only raised $5 (Thank you, Sonya). However the other day a close friend of mine saw my update and offered to help finance the remaining funds needed to get a working system up and running. So with the use of my tax refund, a little bit of crowdfunding, and a lot of help from an old friend, I managed to get all the parts I needed to get a fully working system.  Here is my progress compared to my old list.…

Need a new Workstation Computer

I have really been feeling it lately. The strain of not having a proper computer to work on. I used to have a good rig years ago, but like most Tech, computers become obsolete after serval years. I have been working on my laptop now for the last 2 years and its just not quite the same thing. I need to have a more powerful system to do the things I do these days. Although I am a Linux SysAdmin by trade, I do dabble in many other things, from Photography to Videography, from experimenting on Virtual Machines to Rendering 3d graphics.…

How Assassin’s Creed Origin’s re-ignited my interest in Egyptology

Matthew 0 Comments

Ever since I was a kid, I can remember my brother’s heavy interest in Egyptology. I can remember one year for the science fair, he created a model of one of the theories of how the Egyptians built the pyramid (wooden ramps). At the time though, I myself didn’t have an interest in Egyptian mythology, I mean I was only between 10 and 12 years old at the time. No, it wasn’t until years later that I became interested in Egyptian Mythology. In late 1994, Stargate was in theaters, and it wasn’t until then that I started to get interested in the ancient mythology, but of course, it was a movie and was not a real representation of the true mythology, but none the less, it peeked my interest at the time.…
