    Does it kind of annoy you when you look at 3D renders in games to find reflections that don't make sense?
     
    Like one time I was playing Skyrim and a stream of water was heading towards a shadow from a building (I believe it was in Whiterun) and the stream of water in the shaded area was brightly lit. Presumably to mimic the reflection of light from the sun... whose light is blocked by said building.

    Hehe, I have officially been given a job offer from Amazon and will be starting on the 24rd, four 19:30-06:00 shifts paying £11.26/hr. Three days/week surviving on three to six hours of sleep, sounds like a plan to me.
     
    I guess my week will now breakdown into this:
    18-30 hours of uni (labs+lectures) 
    48 hours working, Inc travel time
    20 hrs studying me ATPLs 
    5 - 10 hrs studying Japanese
    5 hrs for homework
    5-10 hrs for flying, going out ect. 
    50~ hrs for sleeping 
     
    Thinking about it, my current goals are quite ambitious:
    - Average of 80%+ in Uni (for exchange mostly) 
    - In one year time, pass the JLPT N3 exam. 
    - By next summer: gotten my instrument rating 
    - Get my CPL and flight instructor rating during my second year and the summer (this does mean that I will have to completely complete my ATPLs).
    Ah wells, time to crackdown and get to work

    It's funny to think that 3D rendering is a serial operation, just done across hundreds of thousands to millions of pixels.

    I am getting fairly close to swapping Browsers soon  Google Chrome, I don't know why...... is taking up the same-ish amount of RAM/Memory as it normally does before this recent update and as of recently, stuttering is just getting even more noticeable when scrolling up and down, opening a new tab and things like that.
     
    I just really don't know why this is happening. Only 40%/45% of My RAM is only being used according to Task Manager so surely it's not a hardware issue.

    Last Friday I said goodbye to one of my best friends. Some would say he's just a dog, he had zero fucks to give for those people. Sometimes he was Calvin, other times Mr. Man. Some would say it was unconditional love, I would argue from experience it wasn't. He could tell if I was upset, walked away if I was angry, came back and rewarded me for calming down. Calvin made me a better person, he was my teacher and role model. 13 years we traveled the country together, 13 years we jumped into things with a laugh and wagging tail. 13 years I would wake from a bad dream to find him there concerned, now I face those dreams on my own with the lessons he left behind to guide me. 
     
    Calvin was wise, Mr. Man had courage. He will live in my heart until it's final beat.

    4gb ram
    no idea about the drive (I was told it failed and it was broken) 
    final price : 200$ cad, after I offered 220$ and to pick it up, but they told me since I was picking up 200$ was fine.. wich I didn't say 200 I said 220 butok whatever...)

    Anyhow, the already replaced the broken hdd but coudn't install macos on it.
    they put a 40gb sata 2 ssd in it. and I swapped it for a 240gb drive.

    instalation was a breeze using the recovery mode.

    After checking their drive..
    they forgot to initialize it....

    but who cares. 200$ cad for a MacBook pro

    Welp I graduated, 3 months late. But I fucking did it lmao
     
    Just gotta pay off my remaining tuition of $256. Best part is I get to skip the drawn out affair of the ceremony. Granted, when I attend college I will get to experience that.
    I plan on just going to a community college up here starting in the spring semester. Though I may look into transferring half way through the program to a community college where ever @Dan Castellaneta ended up be it close to Huntsville or maybe outside of Atlanta, I think though him and I would stay in that region of the Southeast corner of the US.
     
    Or maybe him and I decide we can withstand waiting until sometime in 2021 and I just run the full general associates course up here. Though next year is gonna be the year we see each other.

    i3 2100, 4GB DDR3, beQuiet PurePower 10, Wireless audio receiver, wireless control panel, power chargers, 120GB Kingston A400. All for £150, cheaper than an Nvidia Shield, which I was planning to buy and has so much more potential. 
     
    Wondering what services to run off it now. Kind of feels like having a virtual machine when VNCing onto it. Wake on LAN from my phone is incredibly useful for it as well.
