When using Linux, take notes.

Sometimes you encounter weird issues and have to solve it. You'll never remember what you did if you encounter it later.

I'm having issues with Nvidia drivers, config is not saving properly. The weirdest trick fixed it. If I ever do a clean re-install I don't want to spend hours figuring out how to fix it again.

Also got a new 244hz display and damn, the movement is crazy smooth! I've used a couple +10 year old 60hz displays until now.

Realized my motherboard is faulty. Have to get another one.

Todays plan: Clean the office room in my house and build a new PC!

Just ordered all the parts for a new PC build. Good thing I have 5 days off from work after tomorrow so I can build. Excited.

Just scored Asus GTX 1660 for an amazing price!

It's been like this for 3 days, 11 hours and 29 minutes.
It has cost us $33 billion, so far...


Red Dead Redemption 2 is such a beautiful game.

Playing Red Dead Redemption 2 and went drinking with Lenny. That was funny.

Pondering between Ryzen 5 3600 and Ryzen 5 5600X for a new build.


Is 5600X worth the price?

Done cleaning a 15 year old PC which wasn't cleaned thoroughly EVER.

...and it boots! Always a good feeling.

Day off!

Big plans: Crack open two old computers, change thermal pastes and give a shot at cleaning/fixing a Korg synth too (few buttons not working properly).

If you sell your PC components, please don't take the pictures by placing the bare components on a carpet...

I'm sure it's fine but still.

I've had an annoying issue with Lenovo Yoga and touchpad not working occasionally for a year.

Now it seems like it's finally fixed!!!

Started using Fedora because of the faster update cycles. No idea when the fix will be on Debian/Ubuntu.

Occasionally you see crazy good deals though. I saw a GTX 980 go for $60. I hate that I missed that.

Man, finding a GPU these days is not easy. Browsing through the used market and prices are pretty crazy. Will probably opt for a bit older GPU.

I realized I'm a bit behind on PC components these days so I started writing an essay about it, for fun.

That's how you learn.

Monday and I'm learning how a sewing machine works.

I've basically never sewed but it's fascinating to learn how every machine works in detail.

Frozen pizza and beer. Soooo single life, haha!
