    New Snapdragon chip announced. The Snapdragon 888 (lucky number in China, hence the weird name).
    We don't have a whole lot of info yet, but here are some of what we know:
     
    Supports upgradable drivers through the play store (works on the 865 too). "most significant upgrade in GPU performance" Improved ISP, 35% faster than the previous gen. Much improved DSP (Hexagon). It can now do 26 TOPS, compared to the 15 TOPS the 865 can do. Wi-Fi 6E support. Bluetooth 5.2 support Works with the new modem, the X60.  New sensing hub. Not sure what has improved though.  
    More info tomorrow.

    I had a meeting with HR yesterday and my probation period is getting extended till February now. Because part of my feedback was Negative but most of it was Positive and overall they're happy with me at the moment. I just came back from 3 weeks of Courses so obviously part of this feedback is also regarding the first few weeks and that was not so great honestly but I'm improving. Also really helps that my Dad is an Expert in the Subject of Electricity so he helps me every time I've got a Test about something I don't understand. Also yay we're currently playing Badminton in Sports. Happy first of December to all of you, hope we'll get better deals now. Black friday and Cyber Monday was also a bit disappointing here, there were a lot of deals but not the kinds I'm looking for.

    I played through Untitled Goose Game today. It was a ton of fun, a bit tricky at first to get used to the game mechanic and feel. I played it with what I think is the perfect Peripheral to do so on: The Xbox Series X Controller: It is a nice Controller with great Buttons and overall feels nice in the Hands, I would wish the Vibrations to be more sharper and aggressive tho.

    So this came out of left fucking field on me.
     
    About a year ago, my dad took a big pay cut from the company he was working at, because the company couldn't afford his salary at the time, but they wanted (needed) him to stay on because of his experience and expertise at what he does. They promised at the time, that they would make him whole once things started panning out (which has begun to happen, and would not have happened without my dad.). It's worth noting that this company has tried several times in the past two decades to get my dad to work for them, because they know his reputation and really wanted a manager of his caliber (he's almost 70 and will outwork 20 year olds without getting winded).
     
    Jump to last week, and my dad was getting kind of sick of it, because his (relatively new) truck that was factory new when he bought it in 2017 (I think), now has 108,000 miles on it, almost all of it from work. And they haven't been paying him mileage. So he put his foot down, and asked them to give him a raise, buy him a new truck, and give him a small bonus.
    They agreed to all of it, and in return, instead of trading his "old" truck in, he has given it to me, as in it's mine, not just "you get to drive it for a bit".
     
    I honestly don't know what to say, or how to thank the old bastard. It's still in great condition for having that many miles, frame has almost no rust, the inside of the engine bay is clean as hell, and it drives like it was new. It's a 2016 (according to the panel on the inside of the driver door) 1500 Ram Big Horn. 5.7 Liter hemi engine. IT HAS WORKING HEAT AND AC.
     
    It isn't actually paid off yet, but he's going to continue paying on it because his new truck (a 2021 model 1500 Ram with a full on Laramie sports package, all the fixins. Including a turbo) is being paid for by the company, but is in his name.
     
    The upside to all of this, is that I NO LONGER HAVE TO DRIVE A FUCKING 2004 BUICK CENTURY WITH BROKEN AC AND SOME WEIRD SUSPENSION PROBLEMS.
    I am tempted to find a field and a propane tank, and use the Buick as target practice, but I think I'll just sell the fucking thing for as much as I can, and give the money to him to pay towards the truck.
     
    Already said it once but I'll say it again, I am speechless. He hit me with this yesterday, and when he picked his new truck up at the dealership, he left the old one there overnight and paid for them to detail it.
     
    Will post a better picture tomorrow. Probably.

    Time to start the puzzle:

     
    I should go through it and remove everything which isn't needed. 401 parts although a lot of them are capacitor, configuration resistors or test points. Also those 2.54 mm are just to large. Maybe SMD will cut it as it frees up the underside. Alternatively going from 0603 to 0402 should help.

    So hypothetically speaking, if you could get both the 6800XT and a 3080 at MSRP, would there be any point in getting the 6800XT over the 3080 if you are mainly gaming? Performance wise, they are basically the same, unless you want to use RT, then the 3080 is way ahead, but then you look at the software support/features. Nvidia has many cool nice-to-haves like DLSS, RTX Voice and Nvidia Reflex, they have way more partnerships with developers and their driver and software support is better in general. If I'm already spending $650 on a GPU, I don't think it would be that hard to spend $50 more for those features and much better raytracing. If the price difference was closer to $100-150, the 6800XT would be a much more compelling option IMO.

    Update on my aquarium:
    My high school has the luxury of having something called the "Student Wellness Center", a room where we could hang out during break and lunch before everything shut down. There was a fish tank of guppies there along with some plant-only aquariums, which were moved out when the school closed. I contacted one of the teachers about these fish tanks and she was happy to let me pick up a few guppies and this sad thing (it was one of the plant-only aquariums but all the plants died):

     
    I separated the large rocks, gravel, and soil, and scrubbed out the insides:

     
    I then tried filling it with water, but I didn't use something that would disperse the flow from the faucet so it turned out dirty on the first attempt. Using a paper plate solved the problem:

     
    I added one of the massively overgrown Aponogeton plants from my other tank and some water conditioner/nitrate reducer. I plan on using this to house very pregnant guppies and their fry, since they produce relatively little nitrates and the rapid growth of the plant means it can almost certainly maintain nitrate levels:

     
    Here's my 10-gallon aquarium with the guppies added. The teacher also gave me some rocks and glass beads, which I used to decorate the tank a little:

     
    Here's a closeup of the new decor with some of the guppies. I can definitely tell which fish are males and females, but  I'm not completely sure on how much bulge means a pregnant female:

     
    So far, the fish are schooling, healthy, and eating well. If you have any suggestions on how to improve the aquarium, please let me know.
