Hardware, Halloween, and Other Updates

You know the deal, guys! It’s a news post. And there’s a lot of it this week, but I have categorized it, so skim through and see what the updates are!

Hardware Horrors

You might have noticed I’ve been quiet this week.

Like, quieter than normal. And it’s not just here. I’ve been almost 100% silent across all my usual online hangouts. And the reason for that is actually pretty simple. Right now, I’m writing this post through a tethered connection with my cell phone.

No, Google Fiber didn’t go down. My phone’s buzzing through them. The ethernet port on my desktop shorted out. Thankfully, without taking the rest of my motherboard with it.

Yeah, I’m still nervous about that one.

For those who aren’t computer literate, however, the ethernet port is what you plug the internet into if you’re not using wi-fi. Desktops don’t usually come with wi-fi, and I prefer the speeds and latency that a cable offers over a wireless connection (it’s a bit more reliable).

In any case, I’ve ordered an ethernet card for my desktop, but it won’t even ship until the 30th. So … I’m a little disconnected at the moment. Which leads me into my next point here—

Happy Halloween!

THE DAY OF TERROR HAS ARRIVED!  IN JUST A FEW SCANT HOURS, HORRORS UNKNOWN SHALL DESCEND UPON US ALL!

CHILDREN ARE COMING!

But they’re really only the prelude. To be honest, the true horror doesn’t arrive for another week (this joke works on multiple levels, actually).

Anyway, today is Halloween, annual day of free candy and terror, and … I’m taking the day as a holiday break. So no Being a Better Writer post today. Why? Well, I’m tired. Colony is done and available for pre-order … and I just want to bask in that for a day or two before I dive back into work again. So I had Sunday, and I’ll have today. Then I’ll get back to work, and we’ll have another Being a Better Writer post Monday—okay, wait, I have a several-hour dental appointment to get a crown fixed next Monday. Maybe Tuesday. I’ll try and get one up Monday, but it’s going to be a long one. Plus, I hate going to the dentist.

That’s the “this joke works on multiple levels” bit.

Anyway, there’s not going to be a BaBW post today. It’s Halloween, I’ve got trick or treaters to prepare for … and like I said, I’m pretty tired in the wake of Colony‘s launch. I’m proud of what I accomplished … but also tired, lol. So today I’m kicking back and relaxing.

In the mean time, however, Colony is still available for Pre-Order! And if you’re a Patreon Supporter, there’s a special surprise waiting for you in this month’s supporter post: A full seven chapters from Colony in ebook format! So if you’re a supporter, you can get a headstart on Colony before it hits!

Anyway, I’m off to relax! Look for a news update Wednesday detailing what’s coming next now that Colony is done!
