My Whole Expanse I Cannot See…

To give an idea

Category: Life

So, to give an idea of what I can do with a switch when the switch works, here’s a video of me from back in the day, a year before I quit the world of speaking people. I’ve changed so much since then, I’m not that person anymore. I want to think I’m something better, but I don’t know.

    Just to give folks a sense of Mike’s proficiency — he pisses me off when we play online, because he beats me often (‘pwns’ me, in gaming parlance).

    We usually play RTS (real-time strategy) games, which involve controlling dozens if not hundreds of units on screen at a time, some of which involve different commands going to various groups such as flanking, feints, etc.

    And Mike does this while simultaneously chatting with others online and bouncing back and forth between his blogging and other writing projects. Amazing, yet so completely normal.

    Looking forward to having my ass beat even worse with the new G4 switch. 🙂

    Mike,

    What sort of RTS games do you play? I’ve never played one before.

    Is it possible in a few weeks when you have the new technology bowing before you that you cold post some video of how awesome your multitasking?

    Wow, I didn’t know you could do all that with one switch, nevermind do it that fast. I can barely play an FPS using ten fingers and 104 switches.

    This is but the 2nd video I’ve seen of you, as I’ve only been on board since TAL. Guess I should poke around on YouTube, eh?

    Thanks for sharing that with us. I can’t wait to see you using the neuroswitch.

    Must the superhuman forehead tapping power really be used on guns? 🙂

    Oh, well, I guess you bring a lot of light into my life too.

    Gun on, cowboy. You are going to be crazy dangerous in a few days.

    XO Kitty

    Been busy looking for a job so I didn’t have time to read twitter nor blogs for long.

    To catch up, I read some older entries.

    This was an excellent video.

    Thanks for sharing this. The thumb switch looked very cool.
