Welp my boyfriend bought a laptop recently and I gave mine to my aunt a couple months so I needed something to replace it.
I finally have its replacement on order!

Been on annual leave last week & a bit. Had a list of shit I wanted to do, one was to get a better wall bracket for my TV. So got one of these bad boys off a mate who works at JB HiFi, he did it for half retail price. Still expensive at $150, BUT the fact I can pull it out from the wall & it has proper locking tilt & swivel & shit is awesome, and well a $1,400 TV does deserve a decent wall mount. Now I just gotta find motivation to tidy up cables & figure out a shelving arrangement for the PS4 which is currently off to the left on my dresser. Also don't care if the sound bar & TV don't look level. It's a right pain the ass to work around my bed which is a king size bed in a room that should have at most a double..

This data print! (Was looking for one of data and his cat, but couldn't find a good one)

Data was one of the best parts of The Next Generation. This clip is the funniest thing in the whole span of TNG.

 

(Do not click this spoiler until after you watch the video above)

What makes that clip so funny is that it is human behavior he learned. He learned from humans what makes them want to commit "suicide". When you think about it, it's quite funny that even an android can come to the same conclusion.

TL;DR What ever this gunk is. A few Tipps:

1. wash your hands before touching things

2. wash your hands

3. clean your stuff

4. don't eat next to your keyboard

I just want to sit back and watch the world burn.

Too bad there isn't a funny and agree reaction. I eat my breakfast and, when I'm alone, my lunch at my desk. But I shove the keyboard's plate under the desk so I don't mess that up. 😄

While I've had white co-workers give me odd looks for it, eating chips/doritos/cheetos with chopsticks is a great way to keep your fingers clean while snacking at the keyboard.

Indeed. My mother used tweezers for eating her chips, it's not the stupidest idea.

Ah yes. The ghetto addition to the audio setup has arrived.

BLON BL03s in purple and a Tripowin C8 balanced cable. I also have a pair of Spinfit tips for them.

Gotta love the open floating key design of the G915 TKL that i'm using. Just a bit of compressed air now and then and it's as good as new. As i pretty much eat all my meals at my computer too, i don't want a keyboard with resessed keys ever again.

 

So now i can finally get away with not washing my hands 🤫

Nvidia wouldn't sell me a GPU, so I said f*ck it and purchased a Sapphire Nitro+ Radeon RX 6900 XT SE instead together with a LG UltraGear 27GL850-B monitor 🤔

Also, I'm a huge Nvidia fanboy, but getting an Nvidia card right now is hilariously difficult + Dr. Lisa Su is cute 💕

An i7 4790 for CAD$130, flat, no taxes, no shipping, via eBay.  It's for the PC in my signature that currently has an i5 4590.  That's a B85 board so no need for a K model.  I'm just doing a 'final upgrade' for it before I leave it alone for some years.  It's mostly for gaming and youtube in my bedroom on a 720p TV, so it's way overkill for that purpose.  I just wanted to max out the socket before leaving it.  I'll sell off the i5 4590 to make up some of the expense.  The PC in question more or less rivals an Xbox One X so I'll be content with it on a 720p TV.

Bought myself a new phone.
Samsung A52 4G.
It's not officially available in Canada, but is $200 cheaper than the 5G variant that Samsung decided we could have in NA. And frankly, I don't need 5G in my life. I have a cheap phone plan with only 250MB of data since everywhere I go has free WiFi (just enough data for use in case of emergency. I typically use less than 5MB per month), my care level for fast mobile data speed is at the lowest. I'm not seeing myself pay more than $15~$20 for a phone plan anytime soon, so next to no data for me.
No picture... F for old phone (A5 2017).

But this is the phone:

image.thumb.png.7d87dbc2676d06aa3ab314bc50d507b9.png

 

Quite pleasantly surprised it has Phone Call Recording in it. I thought it was getting phased out, but it works flawlessly. I can actually use WealthSimple App without it taking forever to open or search for stocks, now. I miss the physical button of my old phone, but I'll probably get used to this someday. I have no issue with the fingerprint sensor either.


Then I put this case on it
