My Internet Game Cars Database Account

Hello everyone, this is CEO100able blogging once again. I have just registered for an Internet Game Cars Database account today because I like vehicles and seeing them in video games (including ones I played in my childhood) and I thought it would be fun to join a website about them. For those who don't know, it's a website that can be used to find in which video game a particular car is visible, or to have more info about some cars visible in a particular video game. You will also find lots of pictures of these cars, taken directly from the video games they're featured in. I will add pictures of in-game vehicles and post comments on the ones that have already been posted over the years. Here's a link to it:

My Steam Account

Hello everyone, this is CEO100able blogging again. This place hasn't been updated in over a year, so I am writing about something completely different. It's about my Steam account. I registered for one today because the PC games "Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens" and "The Lego Movie Video Game" required a Steam account to play them, even though they're physical copies. I installed them and added the same games to my collection.

For those who don't know, Steam is basically a website that provides video games as digital downloads. It started years ago, but I haven't thought about starting a Steam account until now as the two particular games mentioned above prompted me to do so. Here's a link to it:

My Thoughts on Grunko Films

Hello everyone. I am starting to make blog posts about my thoughts on things, which basically describe my opinions on things I care about. Here, I am starting off with a company called Grunko Films. For those who don't know what this company is about, it's a company that produced home videos about wildlife, fishing and hunting. Not only that, but they produced two TV shows, "Experience the Wild" and "The Wild Gourmet." (Experience the Wild had a home video series of its own as well.) Bill Grunkemeyer, the owner, started the company in 1982, ran it for a couple of decades and died in June 2003 at the home of Lou Gehrig's disease, so his company became defunct. Let's get on with my opinions...

First of all, I was really interested in children's home videos about animals (e.g. Baby Animals at Uncle Larry's Farm) when I was little, so my parents bought them, including two different home videos made by this particular company: "Baby Animal Fun" and "Wild Animals at Play." They are actually the 1999 re-released distributed by a Canadian company called Madacy Entertainment Group. The two home videos were first released in 1988. The VHS tape I loved the best was "Baby Animal Fun." Why you may ask? Because it features a little girl named Ashley Tyler and her dad Lyle Tyler (referred to as "Burr"). They go out on animal adventures. The episodes have amazing music. I was really obsessed with that home video, from 2002 to 2005. The second VHS tape, "Wild Animals at Play," was also great. The footage was nice and so was the music. Later on in 2014, I decided to start collecting more home videos.

What I like about this company is that their home videos have great music choices (some of the music tracks can be found on some stock music libraries, such as the ones made by FirstCom Music) and the narration, from Fred Arthur's efforts to Bill Grunkemeyer's talents, was really informative. It provided true information about how wildlife and nature work, facts about animals, etc. They're both entertaining and educational (great educational value of course), so think of them as "documentaries." I like the fact that they take place in Wyoming and a few other regions because the scenes look beautiful. Above all, those home videos are really great.

The bad? Well, they NEVER released their home videos on DVD, so all of them are exclusive to VHS, which really stinks. You'd think they would release their great shows on up-to-date technology because DVDs and Blu-rays took over VHS tapes. If they did so, I would buy all of them in a heartbeat! Also, they never released all of the Experience the Wild episodes from the TV series, nor the other TV show, "The Wild Gourmet." Thus the fact that it was only aired in Canada as far as I know, and Experience the Wild only aired in the state of Wyoming, which is weird. I think the productions really deserved to be released on modern technology products for future generations of wildlife fans.

Well, that's all I have to say about this company. I have some home videos made by Grunko Films, but I only have a few on Dailymotion at this moment because once in late 2012, I uploaded a couple productions made by this company. Nearly a year later, I was a little bit paranoid about copyright issues, so I moved them to my Dailymotion account (it's called ChristianGuy1). I almost forgot that I have a wiki on Wikia based on this company. Check it out here:

News About My PlayStation 2

Hello everyone. I have some bad news about my PlayStation 2. After a year of playing games on it, it stopped reading CD-ROM based games (PlayStation 1 games and PS2 games that are CD-ROM based). I believe the lens is starting to wear out. I still have the original SCPH-30001 model. I'm planning on taking it to my local retro video game store since they repair video game consoles very well. In the meantime, I will not upload anymore let's plays and walkthroughs of PS1 and PS2 games that are CD-ROM based, until I can have it repaired. Fortunately, I can still play PS2 games that are DVD-ROM based since it still reads them.

Now, for those of you who have the newer PS2 models, you may be wondering, "Why aren't you upgrading to the slim model?" Well, first of all, it's because the original model has the ability to read games, including 102 Dalmatians: Puppies to the Rescue and ATV Offroad Fury 3. Second, and finally, I like how the original model operates. Not to mention, it's a good thing my other consoles (my Nintendo Wii, my Nintendo GameCube and my original Xbox) still work. Even though Sony no longer supports the PlayStation 2, I can still have fun with PS1 and PS2 games.

So, that's all I have to say in case you're wondering what's going on with my video game consoles. See you next time, and have a Happy New Year!

Update (09/04/2015): I know I'm really late to say this, but in January of this year, it has been fixed. Now I can still play CD-ROM based games.

An Update About My Windows 7 PC

Hey everyone, it's been a while since I posted anything on this blog. Something recently happened with my Windows 7 PC. That's right, after four and a half years of its usage, the HP Pavilion p6230f stopped working. Why? Because the boot-up process has a glitch where after the boot screen goes off, it chooses to restart the boot-up process and lead to the screen with a blinking dash on the top-left corner whenever I have my backup drives connected to the front of the PC. Whenever I disconnect the backup drives, I get a different screen saying "Reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key."

It all started a couple of nights ago when after I started to continue using the PC again after a time period of having it standing by (since I was doing something else), the taskbar looked like it was frozen, so I tried restarting it by pressing the on/off button on top of it and turning it on again, but all of a sudden, the PC started having weird issues. I tried the startup repair software, but it gave me an error message saying "The installed program cannot start. Click OK to turn off the computer." I also went through the diagnosis process, but it failed to test the hard drive as it failed to communicate with it, along with the default boot device. At least the tests for the memory chips and the processor were able to pass.

It turns out that the hard drive recently stopped working. So yesterday, I decided to take it to my local computer repair store, so I will not upload any more let's plays, walkthroughs, etc. until it's repaired. In that case, this will leave me "Windows 7-less." Well, I'm not really "Windows 7-less" because I still have my Fujitsu Lifebook LH531, which has Windows 7 on it. I am actually posting this blog post via my Dell Optiplex GX260, which has Windows XP on it. It's not really my main computer, but in the meantime, I can still use it. Speaking of Windows XP, I just realized yesterday was the end of support for Windows XP, along with Office 2003. I'm very sad that it had to come to an end, though I have a lot of fond memories of that awesome OS. I hope you enjoyed reading this post, and apologize for any inconvenience. With that said, see you soon!

Edit (4/20/2014): I have some excellent news! My HP Pavilion p6230f PC has finished being repaired, so last night, I was able to bring it back into my household. The original hard drive was replaced with a new one, and it still has Windows 7 Home Premium SP1. Some of my data survived, but not all of it, so I'll have to live with it. This means I have to reinstall some programs I need, plus I don't have to worry about not being able to continue making let's plays, walkthroughs, etc. anymore.
