    Yesterday my employer sent out a fake spam email with the usual 'signs' that it's fake, such as bad grammar, a non existing email address and of course a link. If you click on the link you'd get a "lmao, you failed the test" message. 
     
    Now apparently they didn't even tell our local IT or secretariat so they immediately sent a warning email to everyone saying not to click the link because they thought it was actually spam, lol. 
     
    They just ruined their own test. Genius.

    Yang dropping out is sad. He brought a lot of discussion to the Dem party and yet the billionaires and media pushed him into the shadows. I really hope Bernie gets him into the cabinet, hopefully as assistance for poverty resolutions, economy, or infrastructure.

    I didn't tell him about the build, but he was aware I had just bought the 290x and he was quite puzzled as to why I was getting a 290x when my 1060 3GB is better ! lol I'll probably drop the PC at his house this summer, in time for his birthday.

    It just occurred to me that I hadn't used any piece of audio gear that was on a lesser tier than my FiiO FH5s, so I decided to check out my TIN HiFi T2 IEMs just to bring me back to reality.
    These T2s still rock as a highs-biased pair of IEMs, I get so jaded when I remember that I'm daily driving a $250 pair of IEMs.

    I'm working on a science project concerning a new type of cooling. I've been given $1000 funding, which is nice (not giving any more info away because that would disclose more info than I'm comfortable with). I got a really nice Nitro+ 5700 XT, three 40mm Noctua fans, and a 240mm radiator. 
      The fans come with soooo many extras. The packaging is really overdone. But the fans themselves are nice.   The 5700 XT was much larger than I thought it was.   GPU backside. Unfortunately, there are no thermal pads on the backplate.   One reason I got this card is because it has pre-installed heatsinks for memory and some of the VRMs, so I can just stick on a 40mm fan.  Thie finstacks are super cool and the reason this GPU has super low memory temperatures.       The thermal paste was dry. In a brand-new GPU I didn't even turn on yet. I replaced it with NT-H2 which I'll use in my tests.   GPU nood:

    When offline, I found a weird Pentium M dell laptop. The CPU heatsink doesn't have any heatpipes, it's just a rectangular prism-shaped copper baseplate and fins. There is a dedicated door to access this heatsink and CPU. Dell Inspiron B130 if you're curious.

    Well, I'm in stupid LS (Learnstudio) Lesson again where we sit in a big room at PC stations and can work on our own stuff/Homework. I only needed like 20 minutes (it's a 90 minute block) to do all of my stuff and I'm done now, guess I will just browse LTT and Reddit. Luckily all of the teachers I have are old and don't get Tech and stuff so when they come to you just pretend to stare into the screen 😂

    If you can, please read all of this. It would mean a lot.
     
    I've been thinking of something. Something very important. Something that could extend my graduation date even further. I just don't want to get a totally useless degree.
     
    If you didn't know, my current degree is "electrical engineering technology". A rather meaningless degree few employers recognize. And the ones that do will have you on a technician job, not doing any of the actual R&D work.
     
    A few months ago, I started designing PCBs in altium designer. I have also been playing around with fusion360 making more and more complex parts. Why? Because I felt like it. That's why.
     
    I love designing products in software. No longer do I have to wait for parts to come in or attempt to fabricate something for my projects. I can just change the part in software, and now the change has been made.
     
    Today I asked my prof if we will be working on anything like this, in his own words, he said "you're in the wrong major kid. The EE guys do that stuff".
     
    So far, I have been in school for three years. If everything had gone according to plan, I would have graduated by may of 2021. Of course, that didn't happen. I failed a year at UofM dearborn, extending my graduation date to 2022.
     
    I am very lucky in that my entire college education is funded by my parents, but no money comes without strings. In this case, they are only willing to pay for 5 years to get a bachelor's, and 7 years to get a masters. If I slack off or drop years, It's up to me to make up the difference.
     
    If I want to transition back to EE, I would need to make up the difference myself by taking more classes. What I would likely do is spend $10K of my own money (all my cash I currently have) on going to schoolcraft community college to pick up my hard sciences class. Things like calculus ii, iii, diffy Qs, and chemistry. This would take one school year, and I would live at home. I might even be able to have a part time job. Then, i would transfer my course credits back to SIU, and dive right into my EE major for two years, and graduate in May of 2023.
     
    Many of the very successful business owners DO have a prestiegeous degree. The degree offers then networking and connection opportunities that are not available in EET. I would get this by pursuing higher education.
     
    But is it worth it? I have been thinking about this for a week. At this point, the decision I make is a dice roll.
