The "Where have the years gone" thread

Postby amak11 » Mon Jul 03, 2017 5:33 pm

What's your biggest life accomplishments so far? Prospects going forward? :blush:

Well, first off. Howdy. It's 2017 and i'm posting on FoF.net. Secondly, hey it's dat boi.

Thirdly, I guess I'm a year off my tenure here in the forums. So in that time, I've graduated college, twice. Passed 1 of the 4 different exams I have taken for Microsoft certs (contoso darn you), Got my CompTIA A+ certification as well as my Project+ certification. Now I manage the social media for NintendoFuse and do reviews and articles and such.

Going forward, I'm going in to IT so that'll be fun.

I want to shoot myself in the head every day when I wake up, then in the middle of the day I say "Well, it's not that bad, I can take it", then when I go to sleep I'm kind of happy with my life, then everything repeats, except in weekends, damn, I love weekends.

Wait, what was this thread about?

Recently finished up an engineering degree so that was pretty nice and I'm actually kind of proud of that. Also going through some other life changes soon possibly. Beyond that I still haven't started a career yet and still don't have much of a life. I'll see how that goes.

I'm also still charting songs and enjoying it as much as I did 8 years ago. Grateful that these communities are still here.

The years have flown by... Ive gone past my 10 year membership anniversary, in fact TODAY is my 11 year membership anniversary.. I joined Aug 29th 2006.

Most of my time hasnt really changed much.. I got all my exams and school and such out of the way over 20 years ago.. For me it's mainly been work..

A couple of years ago i started doing freelance digital artwork.. Mostly 3d models for different people. I did have an image printed in a magazine for a toy shop though. I had done a cg render and posted it online. the magazine then contacted me and asked if they could use the image in their magazine (for a sum of monies) So i said yes :D
And a different one of my images has been printed onto a canvas and hangs on somebodies dining room wall.
Most of my freelance stuff is for a game.. well an application for a game.. Its a program that makes creating race tracks for various games a lot easier than building it all from scratch in a regular 3d modeling program.. My part is creating all the content for the program (such as buildings, trees, roads, fences, that sort of thing) so other users can then make use of them in their track creations..

And my most recent thing is. I managed (somehow) to save up and get a new Elec drumkit.. I have been using an Alesis DM5 pro for a few years now (and when i bought it, it was second hand)
Now i have got the Alesis Strike Pro. Alesis' brand new top of the line premium drum kit.. Does everything and more that a premium roland or yamaha kit can do, but instead of costing $5,000 - $8,000 it costs (approx) $2,700 (niiiice)
Image
As this kit has 2 sets of outputs.. Main L/R and 8 (yes EIGHT) separate channel outputs for Kick, Snare, Hihat, Ride, Toms R, Toms L, Cymbals R, Cymbals L, i decided "ahh what the hell" and i went and bought myself a Tascam 16x8 USB audio interface... (approx $325) i ordered it on friday night (after the store closed) and got it shipped to my place by sunday afternoon..
Image
Basically what it is, is like having a soundcard with 16 mic sockets on it.. 8 XLR sockets and 8 1/4" balanced jack sockets... So i connect all 8 drum outputs to the interface and plug in the usb cable. Now i can record 8 separate drum channels all at the same time (I can make drum master tracks) The drum brain can obviously also export midi, which i can also pass through the interface. So i can record 8 audio tracks + the midi to go with them..

Perfect for making custom Drum charts... Although that isn't why i bought it... i got it so when i video myself drumming over the top of various music, i can then go in and properly mix in my drums with the song, i can tweak each channel to (hopefully) match the volume of the original song.


So thats what i have been doing recently..

Children of Bodom are at my hotel tonight. Made me think of this community. Neat dudes — they were stoked to have someone recognize them. Makes them the third band that I’ve had stay at my property, alongside Oceans Ate Alaska and Chelsea Grin.

Accidentally clicked on the FoF link STILL on my Chrome and ended up here lol. Haven't thought about this place for quite awhile.

I'm currently working for Sweetwater as a Guitar Evaluation Tech. Basically playing guitars all day. Pretty sweet gig. Also playing for 2 bands, one being an all original horror punk band (B Movie Monsters) and a thrash metal cover band (In Blood) and also trying out for a late 90s/early 2000s pop punk band

nwru's messing with the wiki, and I got a notification for it for some reason, thought I'd check in.

I spent 4 years in college, got two separate diplomas for computer science fields (networking and programming), now I'm putting them to good use. I'm currently working as a web developer in a small company that runs a few shopping websites. Actually, I'm at work right now, but it's nearly lunch time, so...

I've also been studying Unity development in my free time, just to have another skill to put on my resume. Might even go back to college for the third time, take some game development courses. Got some cool game ideas in mind, hopefully they pan out.

Good to see you guys posting again. I might come back here more often as well.
