You should see the TV we (ie my housemate) have, there’s no other way to describe it than “fucking huge”

now that I have this hdmi cable I guess I’m going to have to buy the 23” monitor that has speakers and an hdmi connection and also looks super cool

>go to PLE

>buy hdmi cable

>get home

>look for hdmi port on monitor

>find a similar looking one but it isn’t the same

turns out it has a displayport not an hdmi port so now I have an hdmi cable for no reason

actually got asked back for the filming of an ad because I apparently was good the other day when I literally just said my name and what I was studying and that I wanted vacation work to potentially lead on to graduate work

u wot m8

so I’m watching this tournament for Crypt of the Necrodancer which has like 70 competitors playing and streaming the game and it is hitting me how cool technology is

like wow these people are from all over the world united by this one video game that hasn’t even been released publicly yet and they’re broadcasting to hundreds, sometimes thousands, of people EACH who are also all over the world and they can CHAT and INTERACT with each other

and this isn’t just a game for the sake of a game (yes I realise that it’s a pretty smart way of advertising and getting people hyped for the game but that’s kind of necessary for devs of a new game)

they’re also RAISING MONEY FOR CHARITIES. charities like doctors without borders, make a wish, and child’s play.

TECHNOLOGY IS AMAZING.

>super excited to try out my new monitor

>get home

>look at cables

>no vga or hdmi cables
