This is a great article about building a little games console - https://mitxela.com/projects/console
It includes an awesome quote:
"Electronics is LEGO. All the bits are available and all you need to do is stick them together. And the instructions for sticking these parts together are available in the datasheets."
The revelation here hits home for me: "That paragraph... it sounds so obvious, but if somebody had told me that earlier in life, I could have been so much further ahead by now."
Windows 10 fresh install OOTB experience is absolutely woeful. I forgot what it's like to pay for an OS that so obviously doesn't respect you. 'Hey im cortana you're stuck with me I'm never leaving sucked in' 'No you CANT use your bandwidth to install stuff you actually want we are busy shoving stuff down your throat you don't want and we are doing it in the background and no you don't get a choice because we hate you'. 'Also we have no driver for your network card sucked in (Ubuntu worked fine)
Let me out let me out let me out let me out let me out let me out let me out let me out let me out let me out let me out let me out
I'm getting that feeling, standing in the middle of a shop... That feeling like my nose is glowing red, I've forgotten to put on pants and someone has possibly drawn all over me with textas. I know objectively these people give no shits about me, but I'm pretty sure they hate me. This is so awkward. Just give me my bundle of irrational purchases and set me free. I can't breathe in here. I need to run. That's the only option. Fuck this I'm driving to the west coast for a swim. Leave me alone!
@Venis g'day :-)
Agomelatine, grant me the serenity, to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, wisdom to know the difference.
Praise agomelatine. Praise the wonderdrug.
So I have $2900 store credit with scorptec.com.au. I have no idea what to buy. I thought about getting a new ThinkPad, but my T500 does everything I need. I have an Asus laptop with a 900 series NVIDIA GPU that should suffice for any gaming I may choose to do. I have an old desktop that I use for word processing and media. Maybe I should just get a massive NAS and a tiny media centre PC? Damnit I don't really need anything. What should I buy damnit! I wish a scorptec sold clothes and food.
I love Jack Russell Terriers. I love all of the dogs. Dog is love.
