New PC is built. Now I walk that fine line between wanting it NOW, and being responsible and waiting for the stress test to be finished. By this time tomorrow it'll be up and running. And my desk will have had a much-needed clean.
The intricate play between supply and demand and COVID-19 has increased the price of my new computer system by $300 since I got the first quote 6 weeks ago Guess I don't REALLY need a new monitor, and I can pay for Windows 10 activation later. On the upside, I hope to be putting it to use next weekend.
So no staff cuts in our department yet, but the system I look after has an end date. Thinking of studying again so I'm ready for a complete non-IT career change when that end date arrives. Work full time, study full time, RPG Maker, real life, easy, right?
Calculated my tax refund - CHEERS
Looked at my student debt - cries
Still, might be just enough left over to pay for my new computer, which would be awesome!
And my student debt will be fully paid, which is also pretty nice.
Tomorrow I will be getting FIVE foster kitties - all ragdoll cross! Three of them will be going to another carer later. But for a few hours, I'll have five to cuddle! I wonder how my 3 adult cats are going to cope with this ...
All these people getting new computers. My brother builds them for a living, so I got him to quote me on a low-end gaming machine. Now I just have to get the money for him to build it. Hubby is jealous
Hey there! Wanted to thank you for suggesting the RPG Maker MV resources! I confused pixel art with painted assets and, in the end, I think painted assets will look much better on my game. I ended up buying First Seed Material's packs Thank you! Have a great day!
Walked away from my computer to get changed. Came back to find my 2 foster kitties playing on my desk/keyboard. They had dimmed my screen, disconnected my wi-fi, turned on airplane mode, and attempted to download something from the forum. I'm sure there are more surprises in store.
Sonic and All Stars Racing Transformed (geez... what a long name) is my favorite racing game, I've spended lots of hous leveling my characters, learning new techs and polishing my runs. My friends don't want to play with me anymore because I'm too good according to them
