Having been through over two years of sleep deprivation as a result of antisocial tenants in the flat above me and my landlord doing nothing about them and in fact rather than investigating the issue they chose to discriminate against me for having suffered from depression, and deciding to frequently demand my doctors details and claim that is their action towards solving the problem, which lead to years of suffering severe sleep deprivation being lucky to get 4 hours sleep split up through being woken and kept up by antisocial levels of noise, causing damages to my health, and severely effecting my depression so I had little energy to be productive and often even resulting in difficulties in life, as well as neglecting my site here and putting out poor quality content whilst depressed and having little energy to do anything.

I had to as a result of the discrimination faced involve my mp and even go as far as involving the local government ombudsman to get things resolved and actually investigated but this was still a slow process, having taken over a year itself to get action taken about the antisocial tenant, while their binbags piled up attracting rats outside in a gigantic trash mountain which itself took a year to get the council to do anything about, and finally eventually being provided asb diaries after over a year of suffering the antisocial behaviour, it took a further year for those antisocial tenants to be removed, and life was good for a while where I was able to rest and sleep and be more productive, however the replacement tenant they bought in it seems that was deliberately sought out to have exactly the same problems, piling up trash not using the wheely bins, and staying up all night making deliberate antisocial noise.

So as to avoid this becoming a habit for the new tenant I reported this and expected the council to talk to the new tenant and outline reasonable behaviour and ensure he used his bins, looked after his share of the garden and didn’t stay up all night making deliberate antisocial noise, yet the council once again decided to take a path of discriminating against my mental health issues, of course in the process they lied to me claiming that they would talk to the upstairs tenant, however after a few attempts to get them to speak to the antisocial tenant they claimed they needed to speak to me first, however upon meeting the council worker with a smug grin stated he would not speak to the upstairs tenant, made discriminatory claims that because I’ve suffered mental health issues in the past and it’s possible for “mental health issues to result in imagining noises and sounds” which is outside of the realm of issues I’ve ever suffered and was very discrinitaroy. Also he kept pushing that because I’ve stated that my mental health is suffering from the sleep deprivation that he was twisting it to claim that my mental health was the issue preventing me sleeping which isn’t the case and never has been, and once again demanded that I provide my doctors details and that this is a solution to the problem. Obviously as a result of this discrimination I contacted my mp having already began an investigation with the ombudsman and him being my appointed representative as you have to go through the mp for these matters, as a result the council claimed that I had gone outside of the realm of complaints and insinuated that I’m a serial complainer (because they ignore complaints that are valid to such a state that I have to go outside to get things resolved)

As a result of involving the mp and mentioning how I had been discriminated against, after a few months of the new tenant moving in and being antisocial nightly deliberately, sometimes even shouting “goodnight” for half an hour after having stomped slammed and shouted for most of the night until 4am before letting me finally sleep as to taunt that he’d kept me up and was finally going to bed, before being woken up at 7am the next morning not being remotely allowed enough sleep to be healthy, which always left me feeling so drained I couldn’t operate and desperately needing sleep. I’m going a bit off track there, anyway after involving the mp who made sure that the council at least follow procedure they spoke to the upstairs tenant who admitted to being deliberately antisocial, yet they still insisted on blaming my mental health and pursuing me rather than the actually antisocial tenant so I had to push further complaints to ensure the procedure was correctly followed, eventually I got them to speak to the neighbour (who they made excuses for saying he’s a refugee and how he’s never had a home to himself before etc) so as a result of them making such excuses I asked that they speak to him about acceptable behaviour and outline being a reasonable and considerate neighbour and stopping the antisocial behaviour at night, finaly they did, and whilst he does have seriously disturbing freakouts at times, like when I was watching the flash he screamed “ree” and stomped into the floor nonstop for the whole hour one time to such a degree I had to turn my tv up significantly to hear it over him, and another time on stream during singing he was shouting “what the fuck” and stomping into the floor repeatedly as though I was being unreasonable singing at 8pm which is a perfectly acceptable hour.

When the council member stated he wasn’t going to speak to the upstairs tenant with his smug look and also claimed that the upstairs neighbours share of the garden which has become overgrown suddenly was my responsibility despite previous council members claiming differently (because every time I have a valid complaint they try to create some nonsense claims against me in order to cause problems) at this point it felt that things weren’t remotely hopeful and I was going to be stuck in this nightmare situation once again for several years straight and the council weren’t going to do anything and were instead going to cause problems to such a degree that would cause problems for my tenancy, after this I ended up in the bank and the lady on the counter bought up the help to buy isa and said about how the government would provide an additional 25% of whatever you save, obviously because the government are bringing the ISA to an end but I got to wondering if there was somewhere that I could get somehow in order to escape, and this lead me to see a place listed for sale at a guide price of £5000 at auction, and being a single floor home with no above tenant it seemed ideal, after viewing it seemed a pretty perfect place, so hope was revived again.

Unfortunately the guide prices for the auctions were deliberately so low as to encourage further bidders, and whilst speaking to some nice people at the auction who also unfortunately were outbid on the properties they were interested in everything was going severely above the guide prices and this meant that the possibility of escaping this nightmare this way was not a possibility so I looked into other possibilities, as the council refuse to put in necessary noise isolation between the floors which are paper thin and literally have no noise reduction I started to look into other matters as I had also heard that the government may be approaching removing the right to buy for council houses, having seen a lot of mp’s complaining about it on politics live I decided to look at what the remote possibilities were after having researched that putting up noise isolation may cost £9000 but if I owned the place I may be able to get grants towards getting the work done on improvements to the place.

Looking into the right to buy I was surprised to see that there’s also a discount available based upon how many years of tenancy you’ve had in public rental homes, with houses having a 35% discount after 5 years and 1% increase per year thereafter, whereas flats like mine have a 50% discount going up 2% per year thereafter so there’s a possibility that I may be able to get this place and make it a liveable situation. Of course in the meantime my case came to a head and this is when the council finally spoke to the upstairs tenant and stopped his nonsense and deliberate antisocial behaviour, but my application is now in as the fear is that the antisocial behaviour could return especially with the upstairs tenants freakouts which occur. In the meantime I will now be able to return to being more productive, depression provided but at least I won’t be getting deprived of sleep and will be able to start getting better, not having to eat so many sweet things and chocolates to try and give me the energy to operate so now I’m on the quest to get back in shape again too.

My case with the ombudsman also ended, and after the council had claimed that I was a serial complainer on the matter, it was stated in the case that the council completely mishandled the entire situation and that they should not have operated as they did and that they wholly failed to investigate properly. I’ve only been provided £400 compensation which is distinctly not remotely equal to the suffering I was subject to due to these problems (where my vlogging youtube outlines much of it as well as previous posts on this site) though it does show that I was justified to go outside of the council with my complaints to get things resolved, and again it was wholly necessary to involve the mp in order to get the council to investigate the new tenant as otherwise they would’ve ignored it discriminating against myself and allowing the upstairs tenant to remain deliberately antisocial throughout the night.

I will be attempting to move forward and be more productive now I’m able to rest better, and whilst the singleplay games were bought in so I could put out quick reviews for short games or fairly simple games I never really posted them on here as writing reviews again was something that really required a lot of effort and really needed me in a not depressed mood to put out a decent review (which at times may have failed on lets highlight reviews I’ve written as I’ve felt depressed and not happy entirely with some of the reviews I’ve written feeling they’ve not been as great as I would like them to be or portrayed everything I’ve wanted to) Anyway as a result I will be doing a 12 days of Christmas sort of thing bringing 12 of the single play reviews over the days towards Christmas highlighting some of these single play sessions which I’ve briefly reviewed on my steam curator page, but deserve some recognition and might even be something you can pick up as a cheap little bit of fun in the steam sales as often these tend to be severely discounted or they’re something particularly fun amongst the single play games I’ve reviewed, so I’m going to bring some fuller written reviews of these games here over the days approaching xmas and the steam xmas sales.

After having streamed for around a year now regularly over on twitch, with 3 days doing roughly one hour stream per day we got our first subscriber at https://subs.twitch.tv/Indelacio_co_uk

Considering I’ve done little to advertise the stream and definitely haven’t done the usual social media posts of going live, and haven’t really kept streams going long to encourage more viewers to stay around I think I’ve done pretty well to have gotten affiliate around 6 months ago, and now our first paid subscriber, so as a result I’ve decided to add some subscriber benefits for the channel.

Currently I keep the streams Monday Wednesday and Friday at 8pm gmt and 9pm on Wednesday, doing twitch sings, hearthstone, and variety gaming respectively. Though the more people come and subscribe and support the streams the more time I can put into it so that’s also a bonus for having extra subscribers. I have also done some off schedule specials and might also do something for new years eve this year potentially.

I would definitely like to thank my first subscriber official_hope for coming along and not only subscribing but also donating and paying me a lot of lovely compliments on my singing, and I hope to continue to stream content that is worthy of being subscribed to, and hopefully bring along a few new subscribers along the journey. Obviously we’re up to as many followers as the youtube channel now and it’s taking over as the leading follower count which may drastically change the way I do things as twitch I can earn ad revenue on, as well as subscriber funds and donations whereas youtube this isn’t possible, so it may come that I stream more and youtube may become more vods in the future especially if the channel grows (and I have heard concerning things on the youtube end like channels they deem unprofitable being subject to removal from the site, who knows what concerning metrics they may use to judge this, so twitch would also feel safer on those fronts)

Be sure to pop along and join my livestreams where you can interact with me live, and whilst subscriptions and donations are definitely not required they are highly appreciated as they do help support me and potentially add up to a state where I can stream and support myself through that and have the free time to stream full time putting up the entertaining content you’re looking for whilst also doing reviews for this site still.

I’ve gone through a lot over the years and the quality and output of this site has been effected by a number of events throughout the time and I wanted to take the time to thank those of you who have stuck with me through all of the problems and changes, and while I expected getting rehomed to be a fresh start I’ve had a significant number of issues which have got between me and outputting the content at the quality I would like, from computer’s breaking to windows 10 updates becoming a nemesis breaking a number of settings and destroying quality of output in new and creative ways I have to work around (not always successfully) as well as the unending nightmare of being sleep deprived by my upstairs neighbour and the paper thin ceiling as they stomp and bang around all night in a drunker stupor never allowing me to sleep.

Thankyou for sticking with me as I’ve been through everything here and I’m working to resolve a lot of the problems, and while I can’t fix the problem with stream window size with whatever the windows 10 update did in November last year ruining my ability to stream directly off the gaming pc being beyond my ability to solve I have been working through streaming off my secondary recording pc, which only has 1gb graphics card and as it’s a budget motherboard despite being powerful it might not handle a graphics card upgrade directly on that so there are some issues with this out of my capability short of yet another upgrade which I’m not in the state of mind to go through all of the hassle for again at this time. You will notice that there was a time where the frame rate started to stutter which I failed to notice having only checked one video and it seeming reasonable I had to change from mp4 recordings to flv due to this update and I can’t preview these before uploading so it went unnoticed that actually most of the recordings weren’t great quality and while I have a backlog I’ve made some changes that should at least resolve this quality issue in the future.

I aim to get back to writing good reviews for this site as well as the well edited lets highlight video’s to fit the content I’m talking about from my playthrough of the games, and have been putting this off for a number of reasons mostly being sleep deprivation and not being in a good state of mind to write content in the quality I would like as well as spending a lot of time and effort to fight against this problem unsuccessfully, though adding webcam footage to my video’s has made this job also even more difficult needing to essentially edit the footage to fit around without showing the webcam.

This obviously is a time intensive process as I not only have to edit the footage together to look good I have to sift through all of my gameplay to find the appropriate moments I’m referring to and still have a decent output of a product, as well as all of the processing and time spent writing the article in a meaningful and appropriate manner without forgetting things or being so sleep deprived you’re not in a good mood to write a happy article and this has not been possible during these times, and especially when I was in my last job overworked and underappreciated essentially spending my entire life in that restaurant or travelling to and from it and never really having the free time I needed to spend on the site and as a result content did drop off entirely.

Throughout the years obviously the site has evolved from simply being written articles to attempting to switch to video content alone through a partnership with blip.tv and realising that most of my readership were more into reading articles than viewing video’s to ending up on the hybrid content we have today.

Problems with life began in 2011 when my benefits were being illegally withheld and this lead to me losing my home and floating around often without internet between locations attempting to get rehomed and the 4+ years of nonsense I had to deal with tyring to get rehomed and it was supposed to be a new beginning and new hope to get here, yet I’ve had more problems than anticipated which have stood between me and the output of quality I’m aiming to achieve.

Upgrades have occurred through the years as we’ve moved from the old VHS tapes I use to record on (an artistic choice) to the 4k video I’m able to record on today (though youtube seems to just downscale it annoyingly) though changing all of the sites embeds from blip video’sto youtube after they shed all of their content creators was a bit of a pain and rebuilding a subscriber base on there after years of hiatus quality is hopefully getting back to the level I hope to achieve, as I’ve said though windows 10 update seems determined to be my enemy, having broken my ability to use my sony bravia tv resulting in a tiny screen being used until I find a replacement but putting it off to avoid stress as I’m going through enough and on a short tether with sleep deprivation anyway, to sound being broken in another update not noticed for 2 weeks of recordings along with the months of video quality suffering after having changed to flv trying to defeat current issues caused by updates.

Ideally I would be able to make enough money to fund a solution to all of my problems and fully upgrade my recording setup to match my gaming setup and have two top quality rigs so no issues would be experienced and output would definitely be of the quality expected and maybe even record separate gameplay footage without webcam and microphone so I an isolate the gameplay footage and use that in edited reviews with sound but without my VO. Another good thing would be I would be able to buy a home and get away from this nightmare of being tortured all night kept awake by a horrible neighbour who refuses to sleep at night often having loud conversations all night long directly above my bed as well as slamming around in what I recently discovered was an alcoholic stupor which explained a lot but doesn’t make things better.

Effort will be made to start getting the reviews back up in a timely manner, although I still want to maintain the quality of actually playing through the games to a significant enough standard to give a well rounded and considered review of the game perhaps along with an expected length and replayability standard, along with due consideration of other products and events I will be reviewing all with the quality standards I aim to achieve.

Obviously during my homeless nature without the capabilities of recording and editing to the standards I wanted to it was difficult to achieve reviews of a lot of events I wanted to put out, and after getting rehomed and going through all of these current issues I’ve put off attending any events and not attempted to put out any content for these even as press releases with information about the event, however I’m definitely going to start making efforts into getting back into this.

I have a small backlog of events I attended over the xmas period close together I have recorded video’s for and uploaded, not in the full expo style with editing and scenes from around the event as these were music events I wouldn’t have permission to record music footage at, but nonetheless I’ve got my views and I aim to give a written output on these events, and I’m also planning on attending some future events in the coming year including visiting insomnia64 in april and putting up some content around this on the site.

So while I have been ignoring and putting off a lot of issues and neglecting the site to avoid stress as I’ve had a hard enough time dealing with my antisocial neighbours and the nightmare in attempting to get anything done about this, along with the stress of rebuilding my life and putting a home together and getting any compensation above £20 for the years of suffering I was put through and the fact that I lost everything in my life has been very difficult to cope with. I feel like I’m ready to start pulling things together again here now I’ve got a bit more free time and attempting to solve some of the problems again (until inevitably another windows 10 update breaks everything again and I have another nightmare to deal with) so I would like to thank you for sticking with me through all of this as I hope to resolve even more of the problems, and while I know there are still things not as I would like it to be I have to take things one step at a time to avoid being overloaded with stress and get so depressed I’m not able to function.

You can look forward to at least 6 lets highlights coming very soon once I’ve edited them together and reviewed them as well as around 4 gig reviews I need to write the articles for as well as the upcoming events I’m going to be attending over the coming year and stepping back into.

Once again I apologise for neglecting the site and you whilst I’ve been going through all of this and I’m glad a number of you have stuck with me through this time and I aim to output content at the quality and level you deserve though it may be a process to get there fully due to things beyond my control or ability to fund I do aim to keep things up and get back into updating the site regularly, without lazy playlist posting and short written reviews rather than a decently edited and considered video review.

In the UK the 5th of November is bonfire night or guy fawkes night, traditionally the time where communal park’s burn a huge fire to re-live the memory of the traitor guy fawkes who attempted to burn the houses of parliament and blow them up from beneath but was sold out by his fellow conspirators and as justice he was burned alive to remind those who might take on the government of the fate that would befall them.

Of course in recent years it’s a shame that bonfire night has twisted to become fireworks night, and although fireworks are also a nice part and relevant to the explosives that may have been used I’ve always appreciated the bonfire as well and I miss the annual bonfires as my area seems to only launch fireworks, so to commemorate the 5th of November and also in eternal remembrance of the years of my life stolen from me by this government and the council illegally withholding housing benefits due to me until they made me homeless, and the amount of time they unreasonably delayed in rehoming me I burn an effigy of myself to have a miniature bonfire as well as to signify the years of my life taken from me burning before my eyes.

Traditionally people use to go around collecting a “penny for the guy” to fund a bonfire carrying around a guy fawkes effigy to elicit funds for a firework and bonfire show, however these days kids seem to just go from house to house begging for money without any actual plans to hold any bonfire, and this spreads to Halloween also where rather than ask for candy with “trick or treat” they just ask for money, perhaps it’s safer to go buy their own candy rather than take sweets from strangers which we all know you’re told never to do other than Halloween so yeah, it might be smart in that sense. The point being funds raised with penny for the guy should really be put towards funding a bonfire rather than just being taken for personal gain, and any funds raised on 5th of November in donations to myself will be put towards putting on a bonfire for you guys next year so feel free to send any Donations appreciated

Obviously I’m never going to forget what the council and the government have done to me, and I think the government should also remember that they cannot do whatever they want to the country and pushing us too far does result in people pushing back, so hopefully the government remembers that they have to be fair to the public at large as well, so November 5th should be a time of contemplation for everyone about the past and the future of the country and if we’re heading in the right direction towards a fair utopia or if they’re just making a bonfire of society

I wanted to update you because my gaming pc went out in a literal blaze of glory with the power supply making a huge pop noise with a large white flash of light coming out of the PSU with a blue tinge, it was rather spectacular and something you can’t really plan on recording or recreate, and after this my pc just would not do anything pressing any buttons so I purchased a new power supply hoping to fix this, however the new PSU is a different ampage and does not seem to power up the pc, so there may be further delays in diagnosing what has been destroyed and leading to lower end recording or delays until I get this fixed.

I noticed while trying to replace the power supply that the previous one was so poorly wired that they had built the pc with a 4 pin cpu power supply going into an 8 pin hole, I don’t know what sort of incompetent fool thought this was a good idea and how they’ve managed to get away with selling trash like this, but I can imagine this may have been causing problems I had previously thought associated with the RX480 as the crashing never occurred until I started using that graphics card, so it may have been the fault of the incompetent ebayer all along.

The motherboard connected states itself to be surge proof so there’s a chance it’s just the fuse that needs replacing to make the new psu work with it, however the entire board might be fried and who knows what else which leads to the entire ebay purchase being money thrown in the trash because they built something that would deliberately short circuit and burn itself out, I can imagine that’s a lucrative business for them as they’d expect people to purchase from them again perhaps, however I would never purchase from that seller ever again because of the terrible quality of the build and I would suggest buyer beware ever purchasing anything on ebay, not only are the stats completely misleading and lied about when you’re comparing components on the sale, but also the build is borderline dangerous let alone being suitable for use, just because it boots up doesn’t mean it’s suitable for everyday use. I can’t believe such trash is allowed to be sold on ebay, and I’m still frustrated they removed the correctly deserved negative feedback off that seller, now more deserved than ever before.

I’m working on replacing and fixing this so I can get back to my 2 pc recording setup, and my current one I record off isn’t suitable for high end gaming recording at the moment due to less ram and only 1gb graphics, so you’ll have to excuse a delay in quality content, but hopefully once I’ve fixed this I shouldn’t have crashing issues ever again as more than likely it was how poorly the motherboard was wired with incorrectly used power supplies that caused this entire problem.

What was I doing that caused this explosion you say? Well I was trying once again to record some games that had been known to crash, recording them on the lowest possible settings, and while I got some video’s out (and yes it still crashed on the lowest settings) the final crash was while setting up and not during recording and it crashed as normal, and I went to turn the pc back on as I usually do after a crash, and it was when powering up the pc that simply by pressing the power button it caused the explosive pop (at crotch height YIKES) and as a result wasn’t captured on camera.

I’m being productive in the downtime not able to record gaming by catching up on editing, publishing the backlog of previously recorded content, setting up social accounts for other sites and doing a lot of things like that, as well as getting stressed out still dealing with the councils incompetence.

I’ll be back to recording and publishing soon, and I’ve got a couple of games I’m due to put reviews up for but I want to capture more footage for the edited video’s first, and I want good quality content so I’m waiting til I’ve got this fixed and resolved before getting back to that so I hope you can bear with me for the delays caused by this.

After many things going wrong and being constantly ripped off lately I decided to have a mini rant on the matter.  I detail a few of the items I have purchased which I have been truly ripped off on and all of the stress it has been causing when people tell you something is working and it isnt.  Is this what the world has come to where you cant believe anything anyone in shops tell you?
