Have fun.

Have Fun! The title!

What is “Have fun” for 1000 and the win in the jeopardy championship? Well! This question comes from the social blades:

I have a serious question for @Twitch streamers (partnered or not): If you could give ONE piece of advice to another streamer or to someone who wants to start streaming, what would it be? I’ve heard enough from “stream coaches”. I want to know what the general consensus is.
Well! The answer is right in the title of this blog entry. “Have fun.” Your welcome. We make it painless here at S-Config.com.
 
Also, we’ve heard enough from “Stream Coaches” too. Is that even a real career path in life? It seems like if you utter the word “Stream Coach” on a social network suddenly you get 5-20 follows from automated “Stream Coaches.” It’s almost like uttering the word “SoundCloud” too loudly on Facebook or Twitter. Lol! It doesn’t matter! ;)
 
The question exceeds twitch and actually applies to any project you are working on the net. This is why this lowly blogger is going to intercept a said message that was designed and tailored only for the Twitch community and answer it in a more general sense. For those who aren’t interested in reading.
 
Sometimes, the best advice is always the shortest and perceptibly the easiest. Yet, we’ve seen people fail at doing this very thing. Including ourselves at times!
 
Read on if you want to see how people fail at these two little words.

ArdunioDECK – a DIY OBS streaming solution on the cheap.

Arduino StreamDECK title.

OMG ArduinoDECK!

Marketing is an interesting thing; We could say that we’ve developed a new open-source product called an “ArduinoDECK” which is a cheaper solution to the Elgato StreamDeck. Or! Better idea! We could just be honest and tell you that this is a basic boy Ardunio Pro-Micro / Leonardo / Due with a keyboard digital input program that we can learn early on in our micro-controller programming hobby. Yeah, let us go with the second explanation. We should throw a disclaimer because we love you. This is our first time playing with the world of Arduino. So if our code sucks or if our terminology is wrong. Drop a comment below. We’ll appreciate you telling us and will correct it as best as we can. Read on if you want to know more.

What the hell twitch?

Fractured Twitch Title.

Dear Twitch streamers,

We’re sorry to write up an article like this about twitch. But we’re here to inform you that you as a watcher and a streamer are human. Not machines! This may come as a shock to some of you out there. However, we urge you to please refrain from reaching up to pull the umbilical chord from your esophagus. It hurts really bad!
