    I loaded up CSGO a moment ago to play some today, and noticed my FPS was like 50-60, compared to my normal FPS of an easily-achieveable 250.
     
    ... Well, it turns out I forgot to pause my Folding@home client so my GPU was basically being choked with bandwidth because CSGO and my F@H client were fighting over who gets resources.
     
    I peanut-brained so hard just now.

    I am making swift progress on my Folding@home participation, at least from what I can see! 14 WUs total, just 1/3 more until I can get the Folding Contributor badge, and possibly even get the Bronze badge if I manage to hit 1M score on the way there!
     
    This makes me feel great that I'm contributing to science through just running a program on my PC, it's so wholesome.

    Earlier today:
    *backs into parking spot with windows open*
    //didn't know there were people in the car in the one side//
    *girl pulls down window, and says "that was amazing I couldn't do that myself"*
    *says thanks*
    *girl asks if I want her number*
    *I shut my window.*

    Arctic BioniX P-series fans were just announced. The new fans look like a successor to the BioniX F-series.
     
    The new P-series are made for static pressure, so I'm most likely going to buy two for my eSports One to give it a push-pull config.

     
    There's also now a 0dB mode, so the fan is essentially off whenever there's no load, which is super nice.

     
    I'm a big fan of these new Arctic fans.

    Finally got icons done for my Spotify playlists, in 1080x1080 resolution for maximum crisp. The weird thing about Spotify images is that it only accepts .jpegs and not .pngs, not much of an issue though, it was just a hassle having to redownload these four icons into .jpeg format.

    I have literally had my PC running folding for 10 hours straight. I went to work at 10am, finished at 3pm, went out to town with friends until 6pm.
     

     
    It totals to 7 WUs, and 24K score.
     

     
    I need to let my PC have a long rest now.
