The Archaic Beauty That Is Windows Live Movie Maker

Aabicus has written an article about free tools for making videos and stuff like that. He’s a professional video editor these days. In fact, that’s aabicus’s main job now, editing and putting together videos. It’s a tough job that requires a lot of work and a lot of patience. Me on the other hand, I’m not a video editor. I’m actually not very good at video editing at all. In fact, I’m particularly stifled because I’ve never really had the… specs to do video editing. But the keen eye might notice that there ARE videos by me on the SPUF… [Continue Reading]

When A Minecraft Server Turns into a Gambling Server

I like to play a bit of Pixelmon. Pixelmon is a mod for Minecraft that basically combines Minecraft and Pokemon. The best experience to do this is on a multiplayer server. There are lots out there, but I play on one in particular. Unfortunately, this server just seems to be turning into a place to gamble. To the point that, well, I really wouldn’t recommend playing on the RC-Gamers Pixelmon servers at all. Now, I understand that servers need to make money, but… I’m going to get this out of the way first. Yes, servers need donations to keep on… [Continue Reading]

A Little Drive To and From The Capital

This is one of those weird articles where¬† talk about something really random. There’s not going to be much structure or anything. I’m just gonna talk. That being said however, I actually had to check and make sure I hadn’t written something like this before. So, today, we are going to talk about a random thing. The journey from the capital of Cyprus to the city in which I live. A journey that takes 1.5 – 2 hours, depending on traffic. Why am I talking about this? Well, it’s a trip I’ve made a few times in the last few… [Continue Reading]

A Bad Day

Normally there would be a, well, normal article here. Probably something about video games. Most likely Warframe. Occasionally I would ramble about something in my life. But I dialed back on the personal life stuff a while back. As part of a new year’s resolution or something. Anyway, yeah, normally this is a video game blog. Today though? Not at all. Heck, I am not even bothering with spell check. Or headings. Funnily enough, those annoying H4 things, I swear they slightly boosted our daily views. I’m rambling a bit today. Sorry. Although this isn’t a normal article, I will… [Continue Reading]

The current state of Destiny 2 – Content Removal Edition

As you might have heard through multiple news sources, Destiny 2 is getting a massive rework on November. One concerning fact is that 4 locations are becoming inaccessible after Beyond Light. Before we get into why is this happening we got to take a look at the bigger picture regarding how many barriers are set up for new players and how much relevant content you can play currently. A quick recap on the story: To address the elephant in the room, those monolithic Pyramids were part of the main plot on the Shadowkeep expansion. One derelict was found buried under… [Continue Reading]

There Are Always Idiots In Every Group. Always.

I was browsing imgur the other day when one of the front page posts was talking about being wrong about climate change. The post, a screenshot off of Tumblr, stated that there would be no real consequences if we turned out to be wrong about climate change and would still be making the world a better place. There were a few arguments in the comments, mostly about “well it’s all China/India’s fault!” and “the corporations do most of it!”. There were even some retards who commented that “more CO2 is good because plants need it!”, not knowing that carbon dioxide… [Continue Reading]

The Lost Art Of Identifying A Font

I have far too many fonts installed on my little computer. I want to say over 9000, but it’s not quite that many. Including font variants and very similar fonts, it’s probably closer to about 7000? Either way, it’s a lot of fonts. Why do I have so many fonts though? Well, aside from fueling my addiction, sometimes I have to recreate artwork. After all, a low resolution image Knowing some obvious fonts. Of course, there are a lot of common fonts that everyone uses. I’m not just talking about Comic Sans or Papyrus either. Back in the days where… [Continue Reading]

The Shitty Version of Diabetes

When someone mentions diabetes, I know where most people’s minds go to. Normally it’s mentioned on some sort of picture of a sugar-heavy dessert. And someone always comments that “just looking at this gives me diabetes”. What most people know as diabetes is in fact Type 2 diabetes, which has known and (mostly) avoidable causes. But there are other types of diabetes. Of course, they always get lumped in with Type 2 diabetes, despite being very different. A Simple Explanation of Type 2 Diabetes Type 2 diabetes generally occurs when the body builds up a resistance to insulin within the… [Continue Reading]

Writing an Article with the ‘Gutenberg’ WordPress Block Editor

So I’ve discussed the Gutenberg Block Editor on WordPress before. The Block Editor is a feature that cam with WordPress version 5.0, which was supposed to completely transform the way you write and build your pages. Clearly WordPress was starting to realise that a large part of their market consisted of people who used WordPress to make actual websites, rather than just blogging and writing. I mean, that’s understandable. In a way. People want to be innovative with their products. But innovation isn’t always a good thing. And the innovation behind the Block Editor is starting to show itself as… [Continue Reading]

The Weird Thing I Miss in Pokemon Go – Team Rocket Grunt Battles

It’s funny what I find myself missing. Due to, well, the world collapsing and a lot of people staying indoors, Pokemon Go has been a bit of a weird thing. But even with the world being what it is, I recently moved house. Because of that, I no longer have stupidly easy access to Pokestops. Sure, I managed to get a Pokestop at the end of my road, but the density of Pokestops just isn’t there. And because of this, I can’t do the thing I weirdly enjoy most in Pokemon Go. I’m not sure why. Maybe it’s because the… [Continue Reading]
