Random Terrain's Tetraternarium

How to Zoom in on Terraria (PS4)

Posted by Random Terrain, in PS4 28 December 2017 · 145 views

I got PS4 gift card money for Christmas, so I bought a few Pinball games for Pinball Arcade and Terraria was only $2.99, so I grabbed that too.
I had Terraria for the Xbox 360 and had no problems with it (except not liking all of the demon stuff), but this PS4 version is zoomed so far out that you can barely see the character you're supposed...

Gallbladder Surgery and GoFundMe

Posted by Random Terrain, in Personal_Stuff 28 December 2017 · 47 views

Found out yesterday that my gallbladder surgery is scheduled for January 11th. My sister is planning to help us move stuff to the apartment on the 8th, 9th, and 10th. Looks like just about every potential AtariAge donor has already donated, so please share this link at other web sites: https: //www .gofundme.com/duanes-squishy-adjustable-bed  Th...

Posted by Random Terrain, in Personal_Stuff 13 December 2017 · 101 views

My sister told me yesterday that I won't be moving until around the second week of January 2018. I guess that's good news for the GoFundMe page . More time to reach the goal!
$2,227 of $3,500 goal raised by 48 kind and generous people in 17 days:

They Want to Take Out My Gallbladder

Posted by Random Terrain, in Personal_Stuff 27 October 2017 · 224 views

I told the gut doctor what game_escape said about a friend getting a HIDA scan , so he scheduled one for me on Monday (Oct. 23). They called me on Thursday to say that the scan showed that I need my gallbladder taken out. They contacted a surgeon who will schedule a consultation. I guess somebody will call me next week.
In case anyone wants to kn...

Moving Soon, So I Could Be Offline for a While

Posted by Random Terrain, in Personal_Stuff 13 October 2017 · 256 views

The new place will be ready in about a week, but it could take 700 years to pack up everything. I have no idea when I'll lose my internet connection. I'm pretty sure it will happen this month (October 2017). If I disappear for a while, you'll know why. My upcoming absence will be tough on you, but try not to cry while I'm gone. :D

Ghostbusters (2016) [It does not inhabit the same universe as the originals.]

Posted by Random Terrain, in TV_and_Movie_Related_Topics 26 August 2017 · 285 views

I get STARZ for free and I noticed that the 2016 Ghostbusters was going to be on, so I recorded it. I was out of things to keep me company while doing tedious work on my web site, so I started watching/listening to it.
Since the movie came out, various people have been arguing that the film is a continuation, not a remake or a re...

Now It's Not My Pancreas

Posted by Random Terrain, in Personal_Stuff 07 August 2017 · 331 views

Continued from a previous blog entry . I went to a gut doctor today (a belly specialist). He said that the numbers aren't high enough to be any form of pancreatitis. According to him, the scans don't show anything wrong with my pancreas. And my symptoms don't match up either. He thinks it's probably my gallbladder and the no fat/low fat diet I'm on works...

I Thought I Was Having a Mild Heart Attack on Monday

Posted by Random Terrain, in Personal_Stuff 23 July 2017 · 276 views

Around noon on Monday (July 17, 2017) I thought I was having a mild heart attack. I had been having slight pressure in the middle of my chest for days and it would usually go away if I rubbed the area, so I thought it was just a strained muscle. This time the pressure wasn't going away, my whole right arm was tingling all the way up into my fingers, I was...

I got an e-mail from a friendly person today. They couldn't send me a gift from my Tip Jar Wish List because the address was blank. I went Googling for the answer and found out from an Amazon forum that an Amazon Wishlist shipping address is blank by default. You have to click on "List Settings," then click on "View Details," then change the shipping...

Camo Moth

Posted by Random Terrain, in Nature, Personal_Stuff 02 June 2017 · 308 views

This is the blog post you've been waiting for all your life that will change the Internet forever!
No, not really. It's just a crappy blog entry about a common moth. I don't remember seeing this one before in real life, so I took a few pictures of it. The moth is called the Pandora Sphinx Moth (Eumorpha Pandorus) [Camouflage Moth]. I left the imag...

The 100 TV Show (Spoilers)

Posted by Random Terrain, in TV_and_Movie_Related_Topics 24 May 2017 · 247 views

I'm up to episode 5 of season 3 and it feels like they changed writers at some point. The first season seemed to show that the "Grounders" were territorial rabid dogs who would kill you just because you existed. Then the Grounders got angry in season 2 because a kid from space killed a bunch of them in a village. Grounders were shown to be murderous scumb...

Protection for Bad Home Putters

Posted by Random Terrain, in Personal_Stuff 10 March 2017 · 550 views

My sister and I like to go to Putt-Putt , but we usually don't have the extra time or extra money during the days when it isn't too hot or too cold outside. We decided to spend a few bucks and make our own home putting area with a Callaway Kickback Putt Cup and a Callaway Deluxe Putting Mat . The problem is that I don't see in 3D properly, so I'm bad...

If You're Going to Go, Valentine's Day Is Better Than Christmas

Posted by Random Terrain, in Personal_Stuff 15 February 2017 · 496 views

Continued from my previous blog entry . My mother died last night about an hour and a half after midnight (about an hour and a half after Valentine's Day). Maybe she held on long enough so she wouldn't die on an actual holiday. According to Wikipedia , Valentine's Day isn't an official holiday anyway, so if you're going to die near a holiday, Valentine'...

Thought I Was Going to Bleed to Death While Getting Ready to See My Mom

Posted by Random Terrain, in Personal_Stuff 10 February 2017 · 474 views

Continued from my previous blog entry . My mother has been in a hospice place where people go to die since the last week of January 2017. She was scared and lonely when it got dark outside, so I started staying with her at night and have been trying to sleep for at least a few hours at home during the day whenever someone could find the time to give me a...
