    Someone donated a Lenovo T400 (again) in almost factory condition--the battery still holds a decent amount of charge, there is absolutely no external damage,  the plastic is still on the Lenovo logo, and the only evidence of use I could find was the previous owner's user data (which I deleted) on the WD Black hard drive they put in. Amazing.

    In my stupidity, I decided to run all the way home to get first aid ASAP, with blood dripping down my knee. It hurts, but it's getting better now.

    I really dislike the design though (Thinkpad X1 Yoga, 6600U). The RAM is soldered down, it's thin and fragile, and it screams like a jet.

    it's really nice to have this. i haven't found any broken websites yet on Chrome 49, but eventually that will happen... the version of Chrome i'm using is 4 years out of date so... 
     
    my quest to be able to spend a lot of time in OSX 10.8 is becoming reality, which i love just because of how fast this OS feels.

    i want to cry. 
     
    my pc has developed yet another fault. this time it's the usb ports. a few hours ago i plugged my phone in and it started to charge, it then disconnected, all my usb stuff powered off and then everything turned back on. now that was odd, but not a dealbreaker. however i discovered if i leave my phone charging off of my pc it gets really hot, no matter what port i plug it in to and it charges really really slowly if i do that. 
     
    i was scared i'd broken my phone but it charges just fine off of the wall plug i normally use. 
     
    i'm so sick and tired of a 2 year old pc constantly developing faults, to the point where i can't even trust it plugging anything in via USB anymore for fear of it randomly shutting off all usb devices. imagine if i was doing a file transfer to an external drive when it did that! i would have most likely lost data. 
     
    i just... why. a 2 year old computer shouldn't be so unreliable! my 8 year old macbook pro has never let me down and never done anything this weird. 
     
    i officially give up on pc's. i am keeping this one just to maybe diagnose what's wrong with it and just be able to trust it for usb again so i can game on it, but it will never be a main machine for me. ever. again. 
     
     
    the first thing i'm doing tommorow is looking for a second MacBook just in case my current one breaks (it did some weird stuff about a month ago which was the result of a ram stick not being installed correctly) and i need a replacement immediately. for now i'm shutting my pc down and i'm gonna unplug it and take it off my setup. again.

    Writing the code in this file made my brain hurt. JS tends to do that. Maths does too unfortunately cos I'm not great at maths.
     

     
    I would have preferred to write it in C# or Java but Electron uses NodeJS and JS.

    Idea: Add a Thunderbolt port to the Nintendo Switch dock, then add support for Maxwell graphics cards. Like, I'm pretty sure some games are bottlenecked by 256 CUDA cores at 768 MHz, and quite a few people still have 960s and 970s. I think it would be pretty cool, if not economically viable.
