Path of Exile: Toxic Rain Pathfinder Update and Earthshatter Champion

I took a small break from my Pathfinder just to level up a new Champion Ground Slam guy. But I got a bit bored and read an article about how I could improve my Pathfinder’s DPS. The answer: Nature’s Adrenaline.

Boom Beach: Upgraded Sculptor and Hit War Hero Achievement on My Main Account!

Finally, I hit an old achievement of War Hero on my main account. Ended up with 601 VP as I made a pretty big push to make a grab for the level 9 Sculptor on my main account. 1000 Diamonds is a very satisfying reward indeed.

Path of Exile: Next Few Builds For Synthesis League

I’m starting to hit a progression wall both in terms of currency and maps with my current character. Generally, when I’m hitting a limit like that, I end up getting an itch to try something different. Or at least test a build that I have been reading about. Since I have a few starter pieces now, I’m thinking it might be time to start looking to my next few builds.

Is Twitch Going To Die Soon?

A few years ago, I felt very strongly towards the development and adoption of Twitch as the ultimate streaming platform. However, once Amazon bought them out, I always had a concern in the back of my mind on how that transition would look. Today, my fears are fully realized and I decided that it’s time to put an end to my viewing days with them.

Path of Exile: How Bad Is Synthesis League Now?

In a nutshell: pretty bad. I find that the current league is very bug prone to the point of game breaking. Two weekends in and I feel that this league is pretty subpar in terms of the overall vision of how the game should be moving towards. The thing is that I’m not the only one currently frustrated.

Jessica Jones season 2 was released on March 8th. I caught just the first episode the night it premiered and finished last night. Many people gave praise to the first season, especially the villain Kilgrave. How did season 2 hold up?

Thoughts on Kevin Spacey Being Cut From Netflix

It was announced that Netflix has suspended (fired) Kevin Spacey from House of Cards (whom I believe he may have produced to an extent) after the allegations of sexual abuse came to light. Part of the situation might have been further exacerbated with him “coming out of the closet” at the same time, which was not ironically rejected by the LBGT community in poor taste and timing. In view of these matters, I wanted to provide some personal thoughts on the situation.

Alienware Aurora R4 Wireless Failure

Last night, my wireless card on my Alienware Aurora R4 seemed to have failed without warning. Not sure exactly what happened but my system could not detect it. It freaked me out because I had done nothing and could not use any of the Windows diagnostic tools to recover it. Looking at the Device Manager, I could not see it neither.

What I found out is that the Alienware Aurora R4 has a rather common issue where you need to disconnect both the wireless and Bluetooth cables inside then re-connect them. It was a bit of a pain to do this since the cables are quite small and require tiny hands to perform the operation. However, after reconnecting both cables and powering back my Alienware Aurora R4, my wireless network came back.

This is a very strange error. I cannot think of anything that would cause this issue. The only thing that may have occurred is the fan since it’s the closest moving component. But even then that makes little to no sense as it’s far enough where it should not affect the wiring.
