HexxyTheGrouch

I do a variety of activities such as gaming, building custom mechanical keyboards, and Lego kits in a very laid back environment.

I'm one of those **old** gamers, and while I'm not a super great player, I'm here to have fun. I grew up with 8-bit Atari computers and consoles. With that comes a lot of random trivia from an age of gaming long gone by. Generally, I'm pretty laid back. The format I'm shooting for is a combination of *Let's Chat* and *Let's Play*. I tend to play a lot of Warframe and Warhammer 40,000 : Inquisitor as my staple titles. A couple of other hobbies besides gaming is improv comedy and custom mechanical keyboards. There is always another project on the horizon.

**What kind of things do you stream?** I am currently experimenting with content and am alternating between playing video games and construction projects. **Will you play *[_insert_game_here_]*?** Maybe. I've got a decent PC game collection. I may dust off an "old favorite" for fun. I also like playing oddball titles you may or may not have heard of. It's not all Triple-A mainstream action combat. **Will there be puns?** Oh, *yes*. There will be horrible puns. My puns are like my online gun play, They will fire off quickly and some may or may not hit the intended target. **Will there be a camera on you?** In the words of Rogal Dorn, "*No.*" There is a desk camera. It is a special use item For showing things and during construction projects. **Is there a schedule for your streams?** Sort of. I Have been trying to regularly block out time on Monday nights around 10PM EST (2AM GMT). **What's going on with the cats?** This started as an inside joke with the Warframe Clan I am a part of. I claimed that I drift from place to place in a blimp with our cats as the crew. AylaVue brought the joke to life with her art. **What keyboards have you built?** I have a [spreadsheet](https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-Et9ZMxNWoWUgsJD0DwmEYz42z4_RPXH0sxVoNS3IOU/edit?usp=sharing).

##Yes, there are rules... **No external links :** This is a big security and content concern. If there's something you gotta-gotta share, search terms are reasonable. The exceptions, see below. **No hate and / or bullying :** So things like racism, sexism, and so on are not acceptable. **Bots :** I'm working to purge them out of the chat. Random useless bots are not welcome.

A lot. **Mouse:** Roccat Kain 120 I used to like messing about with overclocking and took a crack at water cooling. It was interesting, but I don't like the extra maintenance and cost. At this point I'm ok with running my box stock, although I wish I could keep the video card cooler. **Most Recent Changes / Upgrades:** + Migrating from old setup to new (3/2021) + Updated keyboard, mouse, and microphone (4/2021) + Added desk camera for show and tell moments.
