Sunday Typing

Summer is fully on us and I’m trying to get some small whiffs of the AC from my tiny home office. It’s been a little bit since my last post and I expect the updates on here to be spotty at best for the next few months. The main reason for this is that I’ve gotten a new gig and I have been really busy in a good way.

I’m also typing this on my new hand-build, DIY PC. First one in longer than I’m going to admit to on the Internet, thank-you-very-much! I haven’t really used Windows as any kind of “daily driver” in about five years, so my PC sysadmin skills are slightly rusty, which is one of the main reasons that I did it.

I realized that I need the project car. Something I could tinker on that also had some real power behind it. Like people used to do on muscle cars back in the fabled Before Times when people supposedly had money for such pursuits.

It is nice that to have a machine that I built myself, that performs exactly the way I want it to, and if it doesn’t, I have at least some idea of what’s wrong and how to get it there. I’m still in the honeymoon phase where I’m moving all my stuff in here, and seeing what trouble we can get up to. (And don’t worry, I haven’t given up my M1 MacBook Air. That thing still rips and is my main computer. This is just here to be the on going project.)

That’s pretty much all I’ve got for this lazy Sunday. Time to get back under the hood.
