Wednesday 6AM! I spent a bunch of hours setting up Open Broadcaster Studio on the Macintosh, and then tried recording myself creating a new “support me on patreon” widget graphic. It took 30 minutes, which seems like a long time to just add a graphic, but that’s how long it took!
The video is about 30 minutes long, and shows me fumbling around Photoshop and WordPress trying to remember how the heck I did this before. You can see the actual widget on the blog page.
