Totes Amazeballs – or how my adventures in dual-booting my steambox with win10TP are failing.

So I’m sitting here in a room with a bunch of friends and good people, settling in for a good weekend.
Yet, I’m attempting to escalate my steambox to a full dual-boot.

What I did did previously was install SteamOS, then unplugged that drive and installed Win8.1 on the other.
Last weekend I totally mangled things, and the then win10 install was no longer viable (however I did manage to have steamos booting in nicely.)

This weekend I’m making the fresh attempt to get everything running. Firstly installing 10 on Drive0, and then SteamOS on Drive1.
Both are in place, however grub didn’t do anything with the boot manager.

This is what I’m choosing to do when not playing games, or waiting for other friends to turn up.

In the new year I’m intending to finally acquire a new SSD, from there I can do a fresh main system install, at which point I’ll probably be swapping motherboards between systems.
This is primarily as the g1Sniper, whilst nice, has sucky linux driver support, and thus is primarily wasted.
Alas I’ll most likely have to downgrade to a 5.1 setup, but what can you do.

The answer to my problems is obviously to praise GabeN, for I am 550 yards from the hole.

New years, new friends, new place, new everything.

So I’m sitting here at a party thrown by some good friends and thought I might muse over the last year.

Some long awaited games came out and I bought many of them.

I bought a new PC from pccasegear.

Soundwave where I got to see half the bands I wanted because I got fried in the sun.

Spent a lot of time with my new first legion guildies who followed me over to guild wars 2.
Crash, Palamax, Nhorn, Warjay, Blazorax, Tara and many more that slip my mind, you’re all awesome people.

I met the most awesome person ever, Nikki I shall miss you.

And I will not get a haircut.

I shall post more later after some drinking.

It’s not friday honest.

Curses at Rebecca Black for telling us it’s Friday when it’s obviously now sunday.

I have enough trouble keeping track of the day as it is without some underage skank telling me lies. I am a gamer after all.

Fortunately I am at a metal club and thus am not being told it’s Friday.

Also by virtue of having a car I don’t have to decide what seat I’m in. Front FTW.

Also, Penis!

Haven’t posted in some time.

Had skin ripped to shred by a girl named Chocolate, had the flu thanks to her as well.

Anyway go here as I’ve been told not to link this blog as someone will get in trouble for it.
It’s posted anyway.

Oh and I have a party here with a bunch of lanners.

Loud lanners are loud.

Enough said.

DV8, go there because I am. Also Embers of Sanity!

Well originally I wasn’t going to be going to DV8 on this saturday the 9th of August due to a LAN event, however I’d totally forgotten I said I was going to be at a mate’s 21st on that same night.

Now I was meant to go to another mate’s birthday last sunday but totally forgot due to saturday night drinking.
So I figure I shouldn’t miss this one. It’ll look bad.

So yes, after birthday shindig we’re planning to move over to DV8.

Much alcohol will be consumed in huge amounts.

Also, my mate Spike, who DJs at DV8 (10 till 12 set this sat on floor 1) has a band, that band is playing on wednesday, you should all go and see them because he is metal and wants me to spam people with it.

Spike's band has a gig.

Spike's band has a gig.

Yes, that strangely hard to red text up the top of it says Embers of Sanity and I think I shall mock him about that… Spike you have been mocked.

The more people who turn up the better supposedly, they’re recording it or so I’ve been told.

So anyway, go to DV8 this saturday and every saturday as it is awesome, and come to the gig on wednesday as Spike is awesome.

Also, I am awesome.

That is all.

Post Beerkips, Post Lan, Post sleeplessness.

Well it has been a long and sleepless past week.

First I turned 27 as I already posted. I managed to get a Boost for my birthday and all, so kinda special.

Then over the next few days I had issues with getting up late and stuff, eventually staying up from 9:30pm on wednesday night all the way till thursday night when I crashed out totally.

Friday it was when the Beerkips struck. Suffice to say the turnout was larger than expected.

The following attended, in no particular order, and well I probably forgot a few people, but if you let me know I’ll add you in to the listing just because I can edit this thing.

  • Bruno
  • Mr. Vos
  • Lawrence
  • Linda
  • R4N|307|
  • Mang
  • Ithuriel
  • Sando
  • Wolfmother
  • Sparks
  • Luke
  • Chris
  • z_brutalis

As I said, I’ve most likely left some people off the list, don’t get offended, just let me know and I’ll add you in later.

Let’s see, that night a had around 3 vodka and Vs, a sip of peppermint vodka (that stuff is hideously vile, transmission fluid would be better) and of course a Jager Bomb.
Not exactly a heavy night of drinking, but then I don’t usually touch alcohol.

A good night indeed.
Not to mention it was fun watching the normals start to walk in to the bar (270 Russell Street, So Bar, go there) and then walk out when they realised the roleplaying/lanning/channing crowd alongside the metal backing tracks.

There was also fire.

Of course I only got around 3 hours sleep that night as brutalis crashed at my house on the spare bed before wanting to try and get to his fiance’s place by 11… then of course I went to help run my Mage: The Awakening game at the same bar that evening, before heading to the Requiem game before piking out.

I crashed early that night due to a headache and got around 12 hours sleep prior to packing my gear on sunday morning and driving to south gippsland for a lan.

I’m not really sure what the lan was called, other than it was in Leongatha with a bunch of people I haven’t really seen in years, but it was awesome.

I will expand further on things when I need to, but that’s good coverage methinks.

Also R4N is good at spilling drinks over everybody, and Wolfmother is good at not holding his alcohol within himself.
