    While I was buying new running shoes, I can't help but think that Nike's self lacing shoes is for lazy people who can't be bothered to bend over while pretending to be physically active.

    Well if you're looking for a high airflow budget case and you're in the UK, Germany or Spain (or can buy from there) the Masterbox MB511 RGB is 60-65 euros
     
    If you're in France, Italy or the US you can have it at the not so amazing price of 75euro/$78 (and the US price keeps fluctuating up to 90 and then back down again)
     
    Canada and Australia as usual get shafted with $99/$110 respectively

    Windows 10 is truly attempting to test my patience with my laptop (ProBook) again 😂 For some reason, all Power Plans but "Balanced" were missing from my Control Panel, so I had to restore access to them via CMD. The bad part is, this issue didn't arise until the most recent 1803 Cumulative Update. Something tells me that I may need to roll back said update. In addition to that, I went back into AMD Overdrive, only to find that TurboCore had turned itself back on XD And that my most recent clock/voltage profile had been negated as a result! Thanks, Microsoft!

    Dear Microsoft, 
     
            STOP CHANGING MY SETTINGS. I KNOW WHAT I'M DOING.
    https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/110372-restore-missing-default-power-plans-windows-10-a.html#option1 I shouldn't have to do things like that...
     
    On a different note, if AMD Overdrive keeps annoying me, I'll switch to simply modding P-States instead:

    I have found leople often overestimate how much PSU they need of their system. A 500w power supply can even get you an SLI setup these days because gpu power consumption is so low. Its more important to buy a quality PSU rather than a high wattage but cheap PSU.
     
    Example time:
     
    I plugged in a kill a watt meter into my lenovo thinkstation D30 + monitor + a UPS and together they consume this much power.
     
    Keep in mind this is everything including my monitor and my UPS. The power consumption would be even lower if this meyer was plugged directly into the PC.
     
    Idle power:

     
    Okay now lets fully load everything. This machine contains 2x Intel xeon e5-2609 v2 CPUs, a GTX 970, one HDD, two SSDs, and 128GB of RAM. I Maxed out the gpu with furmark and the cpu with intel burntest both running at the same time. This machine contains a Delta 1100w 80+ gold power supply so the psu should be up tp the task.
     
    Fully loaded powr consunption:

     
    Barely anything. Even with dual processors and a si gle graphics card, a frickin delta 400w PSU would handle everything.
     
    The point is dont overestimate how much psu you need. You probably need less than you think.

    After using my classmate’s 2017 13” MacBook Pro with Touch Bar last night for our report, I can finally say that there are two things Apple needs to get rid off:
     The Butterfly key switches - No matter how anyone make lousy excuses for it, typing on it doesn’t feel good especially for prolonged typing. You’ll often second guess yourself if you’ve actually typed a specific letter because of its pathetically shallow key travel. Touch Bar - It adds very little functionality to it and makes typing requiring an additional step. Unlike the 2015 MBP and other laptops with physical function keys like F2 for editing a cell in Excel, the newer ones require an extra step or two just to bring up the stupid Touch Bar.  But when it comes to the OS, I still stand to what I’ve said in the past that macOS has features you’ll actually use and feels less bloated in comparison to Windows 10.

    I guess something I've realized about myself is that I can be incredibly open about myself and not have much repercussions for it.
    Back when I came out as gay in high school (this was back in November 2016 or something), I had feared that coming out wouldn't work out with my friends, but it actually went through very nicely. I think it was around then that I realized that I didn't really have anything attached to me in terms of any sort of image, and then I basically realized that being open and honest with myself really wouldn't hurt me.
