What're you asking for for Christmas/holidays

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Aside from "the bills to be paid" as everyone wants that, what are you asking for? 

 

What are you planning on giving loved ones, or special people? 

 

Personally I want a textbook on C#, Roadside Picnic, and a mechanical keyboard. 

 

 For my mom, she wants windows on her Mac, so I'll get her windows and install it for her on her computer. 

 

I saw a guy that made a video game my brother likes and I got I got it signed, so I'm giving my brother that signed game. 

 

For my dad, I may start writing a business program for him in Visual Basic, he's been asking me to try and write something for years but I didn't know how. I'm going to ask my teacher for some help. 

 

I know its early, but, you know how things run out of stock super quickly.

Probably just for money, that or an RX 560.

Well as for what I'm getting one loved one, well he's in the thread but I mean his guess is good as mine ;) 

 

Not much I really want that I'm not going to buy myself.

 

Anyways as far as other ideas what I'm giving to other people I don't know.

 

TL;DR

Spoiler

 

Frankly I really want much lol as a bit of a trade, I loaned my mom $75 to get a ton of golf balls to paint and then to sell so I'll just say she owes me like $35 or something like that. and the $113 I paid to keep the lights on, that's her birthday present I guess because that's also in december granted I benefit just as much from having the lights on that is something she normally pays I keep to what I can usually afford and that's my tuition for the distance high school I go to and the internet when I have more money in a month.  context: she lost her primary job because of reasons that I think given an appeal that she is working on, she could get that job back because the conditions surrounding that issue were out of nowhere and uncalled for considering that she had everything she needed.

For my wife I'm getting her a smart watch and completing the restoration on her 63 VW Bug. 

 

For my 4 year old son, a bunch of Thomas train stuff and hot wheels stuff. Also a new tablet for him. 

 

For my new born daughter (will be born November 14) most likely clothes and food. 

 

For basically the rest of the family (wife's side as I don't really have a family) no idea. My wife took care of it. 

 

As for what I want....no idea. I never really celebrated Christmas as I'm from a really broken family.

Want? $60 for Battlefront II, and .22LR rounds.

 

Giving? Perhaps an airsoft gun to one brother, mebbe some 10/22 upgrades for another brother, and IDK what to buy my younger siblings that they won't break or never use. 


Maxwell is still awesome, and so is X58. The Battlefront series are the only games worth playing (I may consider Destiny 2 tho... or Battlefield 1) If you want to discuss old Star Wars games like Battlefront II and KOTOR, check out my thread: Anyone still playing old Star Wars games? If you wanna discuss the X58 platform and get tips and advice: General X58 Xeon/i7 discussion.

 

Long live his RGBness, @Damascus! And Fractal Design/SeaSonic dude, @Ordinarily_Greater is awesome as well! Also the man who introduced me to the glorious XCMR, @WhisperingKnickers.

 

Current build:

CPU: Xeon X5675

CPU Cooler: Gammax 400
Motherboard: ASUS Rampage III Formula
Memory: Ballistix Sport 8GB DDR3 + 8GB ADATA XPG V1.0 (red) + 16GB HyperX (on the way)

More storage: 2TB something or other drive lying around. 
Video Card: MSI Gaming 980 Ti 6G

PSU: SeaSonic M12II 620W

 

2012 MacBook Pro (Work): 2.9GHz i5, 16GB RAM, 525GB SSD. 

 

iPad Pro: magic (and you can't open it up to disprove it, as it's glued shut). Jk, it's got an A9X with 4GB RAM. I didn't need it, so I surrendered it to my Mum.  She never used it so It's mine again. 

 

iPhone 6 Plus: more magic, with an A8 and 1GB RAM.

A license for emacs ;)

 

No but really I have no clue.


Why use Linux?

  • Less malware than OSX and Windows.
  • It's faster and more efficient than OSX and Windows.
  • No bloatware included.
  • You can make your desktop look however you want. Literally.
  • You can update all your computer's software with a single click.
  • Runs on pretty much anything, no matter how old it is.
  • You can see every line of code it uses, so you know there's no NSA backdoor. They tried (and failed) to get a backdoor inserted into Linux. There are also no keyloggers built-in, unlike in Windows
  • It costs exactly $0.
  • According to Gabe Newell, it's the future of PC gaming (as is SteamOS).
  • By using it, you ascend even higher into the PCMasterRace
