I to, much like @robville, have been around this place for a time but took a leave of absence. Mostly due to computer failure issues but also work.
I've been a GSNian since 9-22-2013 and have always been loyal to his clan and community. A lot of great times have been had here and I've made some excellent friends along the way. I never got a chance to do a meetup, as usually those happened at my lowest of times, but if one is held in the future I'm confident I can attend..
Lately I've been gaming more now that my PC is back up and running...FINALLY uppped my RAM to 16GB (from it's previous of 4GB....) and sometime next week should get a decent video card that a former GSN member is sending me that I bought from him..it's not top of the line like a lot of you have, but it's certainly better than the GeForce 9800 GTX/GTX+ I'm using currently...
As for gaming, I've started putting effort into YouTubing, but the editing time for videos really dragged me down so I've started Live Streaming off YouTube..and may eventually move to Twitch once I get my Twitch fixed back up again.. Still trying to figure out OBS and scenes and switching and whatnot so that will be a learning progress.
Currently I work full time as a security guard at a Firestone factory..not the greatest..nor highest paying, but it's a job..gives me food, gas, vape juice, and gaming money so I'm happy.
In the past few years I've picked up vaping as a way to stop smoking and have gotten into it a lot more than most..I'm on a competitive team and in the last competition I took 2nd place in my class, losing to a fellow teammate which is always good. I currently have 4 mods. 2 boxes and 2 mechs, the boxes run tanks and the mechs of course run RDAs. The newest box I literally just got the other day and is a customized Hex Ohm that members of my team all got and is personalized with my team nickname of Too Tall on the side..really awesome stuff. In my streams currently you'll hear my vaping, but in future streams when I get a cam and possibly a green screen you'll actually see them.. #VaporGamer
Hope to see the new as well as old faces around as I continue to make more of an effort to get back into gaming..I know I surprised @BadBadRobot one day by hittin up his stream, subscribing, and tossing him some bitties
