I’m alive! And I’m taking the Ryzen plunge…

Hey everybody! Hope you guys are doing well. I’m still alive!

I decided to force myself to update things here, because I have neglected it and I feel like an asshole, so here I am! Things are moving pretty smoothly here. We’re working on the podcast more and more. It’s slowly trending upwards and I feel good about that. It started with myself, my buddy Ron, and my other buddy Luke, but due to time constraints, Ron had to drop out. He just has more important things to concern himself with. It kinda sucks, but that’s life. It’s okay though; Luke and I are soldiering on.

In other news, as the title implies, I’m gonna take the Ryzen plunge! Tomorrow, I’ll be placing an order with Newegg for a Ryzen 5 1600 CPU and a compatible motherboard. For the last year and a half, I’ve happily rocked a quad-core, quad-thread Intel Core i5-6500, but with me slowly working my way into streaming on Twitch, I’ve decided that a 6-core, 12-thread (read more about threading here) would be greatly preferred to help with the real-time video stream encoding. All of that should be taken care of and switched over within a few days. I’m actually rather excited for it.

So there you have it. A small update on life. It’s pretty good, and is finally treating me well.
