I was making gift cards for a client’s small fundraiser. I made a gift card and emailed it to her; no problem. She replies back saying thanks.
Ten minutes later, I get a call.
Client: Hi, you know I have to print out three gift cards, but you only sent me one.
Me: It’s just the image. You just print out multiple copies.
Client: But there’s only one gift card. I need three of them.
Me: Since the gift cards are all the same, you can just print it out three times.
Client: But I only have ONE gift card. I need THREE of them!
At this point, I just gave up and emailed her again. This time, I reattached the same file (with slightly different names) three times.
She replied to thank me for churning out two more cards so quickly.
That’s very sweet of you to say and I don’t blame you all for jumping ship because of the music! Normally things are a little more happening on the streams I run (read: I’m not going in completely blind), so hopefully things only go up from here! Thanks! :D!
Boy, that was a dating sim, huh?
If there’s ever a next time I stream one that isn’t familiar to me, maybe I’ll actually play it for a few hours so we’re not (hilariously) skipping out on dates and shit on accident because of an ambiguous interface.
Regardless, thank you kindly to all of you who came out and watched. We had some interesting things going on in chat, too, and some Japanese viewers even showed up, so people got to see me stammer my way through a foreign language live on camera with nobody else to talk to in front of me. :D!
Archive is here for now, if you missed it and are curious, although I seem to have hilariously had the last 30 minutes muted because I also played Dracula X for a little bit and apparently that music can trip off alarms. :D! I did record an offline backup, too, thinking I was going to upload this to YouTube and make it a casual series, but… I could do without playing it again, so.
Still want to stream Dream Club and a handful of other dating sims I actually know in the future and those have way more interesting stuff going on by comparison, so hopefully I’ll make time for that eventually! Otherwise… I’ll probably just stream random untranslated RPGs soon or something. I dunno. Not sure, but I like doing this stuff, so there will be more to come either way.
Thanks for watching either way!
