    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.

    I'm having an issue where when I play just about any game, my computer acts as though one of my monitors is disconnecting and reconnecting, which makes whatever game I'm playing stutter or hang for a moment. The only thing I've been able to figure out is that it's probably my side monitor cable, which is a DP to DVI (of some kind) adapter and DVI cable. If I unplug that cable, the problem goes away.
     
    Time to order a DP to HDMI cable I guess? Any recommendations as to brand or something specific to look for?

    I don't mind working for that manager, he rarely fucks things up. Usually he's the guy we call to fix anything, he's actually our sysadmin but he's filling in for everything else for the last month or so because we have been absolutely slammed and my actual boss quit without notice over stress related health concerns.
