[Life] Refrigerator Mayhem

Canada Day July 01, 2019, I woke up to the joy of a broken down refrigerator. The refrigerator left more than just defrosted food as we faced a journey which lasted over a month.

Oculus Rift S with Steam VR

Use your Oculus with Steam

Did you know, you can use your Oculus Rift with Steam. When you first try to run SteamVR or a VR game from Steam with your Oculus you will be blocked.

Now the doors for many more game mechanics has opened.

Charging into the Sky

Change has came!

I jump into the sky with confidence and pride. The blog’s big redesign took about three weeks and is finally here. The new blog features full responsive design. Updated top pages with new menus and some new headline graphics. Social graph cards have been implemented. Google Ads have been restored with full policy compliance. Best of all, the blog was re-branded to be about myself and to feature my cartoon alter ego. I hope everyone likes it, or not I don’t really care.
