Use Movavi Screen Capture To Conveniently Record Online Screen Activities

The virtual zone comes up with several streaming videos and presentations every now and then. There are tutorials in the form of how-to videos, streaming music sessions, educational or business webinars and so on. Now, the online streaming video websites do not usually permit download features and hence it becomes a problem when you can’t catch the online streaming programs at their scheduled time. However, not to worry as today you have Movavi Screen Capture Studio that works to capture video from screen and the save them in a computer so that you can check them whenever you are free to. Below is a short review on Movavi Screen Capture Studio.

Decided to Give InMotion Hosting a Try

As it stands now InMotion Hosting contacted me and asked me to see if I wanted to test and compare their hosting plans with my existing hosting plans that I have been using for several years and they hit me up at a good time.  I was having some frustrating experiences with HostMonster support and so much email back and forth that I have been considering switching anyway.

Hence I am now in the process of some of my smaller blogs to InMotion Web Hosting and if all goes well, then I will transition and cut over all my smaller sites to InMotion Hosting.

Here are some of the things that I considered that were key points.

  • SSD Drives for all hosting accounts

All hosting plans including their $5.99 per month launch plan now include SSD drives which have lightning fast performance for disk based IO operations. In theory this means if you set your W3 Total Cache or caching plugins to cache to disk you should be seeing much better performance, logs write faster and there should be noticeable improvement in pageload speeds based on IO operations to disk. I am going to see if there is noticeable improvement after I cut my sites over.

  • Free Data Backups

No need to mess around with plugins and configure them, the plan will just setup backups on a scheduled basis for free.

  • Unlimited Disk Space and Unlimited Data Transfer

What this means is you don’t have to worry about filling up your assigned disk space or reaching a data transfer cap or having to pay more, even the budget plan has unlimited disk and data transfers.

  • CPanel

For those who are like me and prefer CPanel to access their services/applications, they have CPanel on all hosting accounts.

  • SSH Access

This is another good one, for those who want SSH access instead of being limited to only FTP access.

I figure I should have one of my smaller sites cutover by Friday night, with others to follow on the weekend.  I haven’t had a review and certainly haven’t tested their support yet, but so far I am liking what I see in InMotion hosting and willing to give them a try as once again I have been disappointed lately with HostMonster support.

Plans start at $5.99 per month to host 2 sites.

Purchased the 5th Edition Dungeons and Dragons Set

Yep, so after playing a little more of the starter edition of Dungeons and Dragons 5th edition with the boys I decided to take the plunge and purchase the 3 core rulebooks for 5th Edition Dungeons and dragons.  These are probably the only books I will use for a while and I am liking some of the features of the new edition from the starter pack, most noteably though is how powered mages and clerics can be with level 1 spells doing up to 24+ damage on a single spell in a 1st level spell slot.  There is little chance a 3.5 edition 1st level character could match a 5th edition 1st level character based on some of the improvements to spell damage and effects in 5th edition.  Though warriors seem to be on par, again, don’t have full rule books yet so just basing on the small list of things I see in the starter pack.

The kids want to get more involved with drawing and making maps, towns and dungeons and we shall make this a whole family affair.  My oldest son is loving the Dwarven Cleric and my youngest is a human fighter both have their own play style, my youngest is more loyal and honest, truly lives up to the Lawful Good alignment while my oldest is quick to turn to profit in game and between the two of them constantly wanting to follow different paths I can see my DM challenges ahead of me with turn based approaches and trying to keep missions and storyline that appeals to both players at the same time or else it will end up being one person’s turn then another without an actually party traveling together.

HyperX Fury Pro Gaming Mousepad

So randomly in the mail HyperX sent us one of their Fury Pro Gaming Mouse pads, and this thing was a BEAST in size even though it is one of their smaller size options!

So 360mmx300mm was so huge, it easily bested the size of both my other desktop mousepads combined.

My mouse has so much room to scroll in all directions I never have to worry about my mouse reaching the edge of the pad.  The surface is nicely textured and the mouse tracks perfectly, but of course I have to say that the edges are laser cut and not braided, this means they probably are prone to separation over time but I won’t say for certain as I haven’t used the mousepad long enough.  I tend to prefer mousepads with braided edges because I rest my entire arm on the mousepad most of the time and I have frayed the edges of many a mouse pad before.

This one is a simple no-nonsense beauty and is ideal if you just want a solid mousepad that is large and your mouse will track well on.  Black faced mousepads still do best for red laser mice when tracking and I recommend them over getting one with a fancy graphic art if you just want something for pure gaming performance.

Mining is Oh So Boring in Elite Dangerous

I did finally try out mining with my Type-6 and unfortunately it looks cooler in the images than it actually is.  The mining profession just isn’t profitable as the random nature of minerals you get from Asteroids isn’t found out until you start mining and each asteroid only has about 10 chunks you can break off to collect, refine and turn into minerals to sell.  What this actually ends up meaning is that you spend a great deal of time slicing into an asteroid, moving back and forth to scoop up pieces in your cargo scoop, then putting them in the refining bay slot, then back to the grind.

In the end, my average profit was around 33,000CR an hour when getting Silver, Bertrandite, and Lepidolite.  I imagine if you can find the Painite which sells for like 33k CR per ton, you may get profit, but I have yet to find any and it is a needle in a haystack out there.    They need to make mining more engaging and profitable without Painite being the only thing people would be willing to mine for.  A tractor beam that helps scoop up minerals into the cargo scoop would be a huge asset as well.

Either way, I was glad I tried it and some pretty pics came out of it.
