Sort of similar, but when I heard how much successful people make on Twitch, my mouth dropped.

Some of them make more in a month than I do in a year. That's strawberry floating insane.


Start streaming. Maybe you'll earn the same.


I don't think I could ever do that. Seems like begging or exploiting the foolishness of people with more money than sense.

If only it was that easy. You have to be able to maintain an audience who would be willing to support you. But if you do find it, it stands a chance to increase, thus getting you more money. And unlike Youtube, all of that money goes to the person, hence why many are migrating from Youtube to Twitch.

I've been thinking about doing it, just to try it out, but I really don't think I can hold a constant stream of talk to engage a viewer.

There's someone around here doing the same, although he seems to have given it a rest recently. Some middle aged man with a noisey Harley type bike, just riding it up and down our road all day, wearing a black shell type helmet with a white skull on it, and wearing a black vest :fp: The last time he was doing it I felt like telling him to strawberry float off and have his mid-life crisis somehwere else.

Sub money and bits don't and also if you have donations through PayPal they take a cut. I had a $100 donAtion before PayPal took some, then when transferring it to my bank they took more. banana splits.

I'd be a terrible streamer, I lack the attention span to keep myself focused on a single game for a prolonged period, let alone keep an audience engaged. I flutter between 2-3 games at a time and move between them on a whim.

It would be 20 mins of me playing with settings, reinstalling a driver and then getting distracted by a cat video on YouTube before going out for a cigarette.

Well, I'm sure it's still better than however much you'd get from Youtube in the same amount of time, hence why plenty of general game players are moving to Twitch. Although, should Paypal really have taken two cuts from that donation?

3am this morning a tow truck took away my upstairs neighbours motorbike. 3am. Who the hell calls a recovery truck at 3am? When the bike is parked and had been all day since 10am? It's not the same bike that's been speeding round but it was just as annoying.

strawberry floating Wayfair and the shitty strawberry floating courier company they use. Ordered furniture on Monday with delivery for Weds. Shipment has been with XDP (their courier) since 3pm on Tuesday afternoon and at the delivery depot since 5am on Weds morning. And there it still sits. Had someone at home for the last two days in case it gets delivered. Pretty obvious they've got nothing else to deliver in the surrounding area so they're just no bothering. Just phoned Wayfair and basically told them if it doesn't come today then cancel the order. Avoid this company at all costs, particularly if they're using XDP for your delivery.

Seriously that's probably been stolen. I know someone that had that happen with their caravan. Someone turned up in the middle of the night with a tow truck and craned the thing off their drive.

Had the same thing for several months last year, was usually round about 3am when someone on a nearby road started revving up either a bike or gooseberry fool car fitted with noisy exhausts for an hour or two.

Wasn't that loud due to the distance but was just enough to keep me awake (I'm an extremely light sleeper due to various health issues).

Was doing my head in for ages then suddenly stopped, I like to think someone beat them to death with something heavy (or at least hurt them enough to make them stop being a banana split).

Just bought the new Tool album digitally via HDTracks and strawberry floating hell what a ballache that was, firstly why the strawberry float is it £20 for the FLAC version when the mp3 is £7.99, and secondly you have to use some gooseberry fool download manager to actually download it.

Never again.

Album is effing brilliant though.
