    This week of the year reminds me of what a piece of shit I am, hopefully no one else feels like that.
    But if you do, I hope some of these pictures help you get through it:
    Not sure where I was planning to go with this status update (wrote down a bunch of stuff, but also deleted a lot of it). Just here hoping you are all having a good time. Maybe spending time with family? Having some time off school/work?
    Hope life has been treating you well.
     
    With us entering 2020, my mind has been kind of reflecting over the past decade and over how little I have accomplished. But at the same time I am sure 2009 me would have never expected to see myself in the position I am in.
    Looking back 1 year, month, week or day at a time won't give the full picture of your evolution, but a decade will show a large change.
     
    This forum has been a decently large influence on my life these past years. The people I have met, talked to, etc. While I feel like I am a lot less close to the community now, as compared to the past; I still feel like this is the one online place I am still comfortable calling 'home'.
    Thank you to those that have made me feel welcome here over the years.
    This place and its people have left me with a lot of questions and regrets too, but I feel like that is all part of the 'masterplan', so to speak.
     
    I have no idea how in the span of 10 minutes I have myself go from "I hate myself" to "I still hate myself, but I guess I have grown up too", but sometimes it just be like that.
     
    Hope you have a wonderful end of the December month.

    I've just sold my Surface Book 2. Got 2.3k€ for it. Given I bought it for 3000€ about one and a half years ago, it's honestly not even that bad of a depreciation, for a windows laptop. Pretty happy.
    Now I'm considering whether I should switch to Mac or get another Windows machine. Decisions, decisions.

    So... I didn't think I'd get here but Microsoft's lack of attention and general attitude towards their own products forced my hand... I got myself a MacBook Pro. Fml, I'm subscribed to /r/apple now. How the times have changed.

    I must say I'm enjoying it a lot so far.

    Ok, final setup for my nas :
    Dell Optiplex 390, i5 2500 + 4gb Ram, buying Saturday (100$)
    network card (sadly not 10gigabit since I'd need 2.. at 100$/ea) + 5.25 bay adapter, delivered (40$)
    2x 4tb WD blue, delivered (230$)
     
    total cost : 370$ cad, tax in.
    still under the cost of a decent QNAP w/ no drives
     
    I now have to shuffle the data around ?
     
    Edit : I foforgot, I'm swapping OS on my main machine from a 128gb ssd to my 1tb Mushkin reactor. I'm using the 128gb for FreeNAS

    Bought a mid-2012 logic board for my early 2011 MacBook Pro 15. yay for Mojave support, +15% CPU performance, +46% discrete GPU performance, +USB3, +80% iGPU performance, and still MacOS with a decent keyboard!
     
    cost me $305, but I can sell my logic board for roughly the same amount, so it could potentially cost me nothing. ?

    I got android-x86 running on my Surface Pro. It was hella easier than I expected, and the performance is also way beyond what I expected. All in all, I just breathed new like into an old device that was collecting dust, so I'm pretty happy with myself, despite its battery life being garbage-town ^^.
