been awhile.

my latest build in the same case has 4.15 years on the HDD hours.
the xeon e3-1270

Have needed nothing.
I am at a new address, near umo orono maine.

I thought of this place while moving.. old heatsinks and pc parts I had stored away coming out of the closet.
very humbling.

I turned 48 in january.
I found this place since day one.. I see it is almost 20 years now.

will try to check in more often.. time to catch up. :)

I quit smoking in aug 2019 after stating (written) "I just tasted the most horrible flem". they announced covid 4 months later
I have since gone into vape technology... not the kids playing version, but the inventors purpose. Been doing well. I mix my own light mixture..no flavors. Just for quitting smoking. learning wattage and the technology.. I believe there is a future of medicine to come from that vape world.

a huge thing I have gotten into is the cellphone. Never had one as my fingers do not agree with the tiny screen. I found a phablet and am doing well with it.
I may stop custom building to go for a large screen lap top next.. but not sure.

Just wanted to say hi, and that i think of this place... this one thread is 15 years.

Welcome back.

My PC updates have certainly slowed down as my computing needs have nearly plateaued...it's just the occasional gfx card update for gaming..and moving to a 42" 2160p TV for a monitor. I don't think I could stand having a laptop for my primary display..or deal with it's noise.

Congrats on stopping smoking...but I don't think vaping is much of an improvement. You are still inhaling chemicals. If you still need nicotine, go for the patch or gum.

How are you getting on with that? I was pondering several times whether I should get one of those. My other idea was to get a giant cheap TV (75"+) and work on it with a least 2-3m distance.

It's worked out well. I've got a 2019 Vizio M series. So, HDR/wide gamut is pretty awesome. A bit of a pita debugging Windows, HDR, and not having Displayport or HDMI 2.0 on the TV. I think my 9 year old CPU is going to run up against the Windows 11 wall as it doesn't support TPM. So, I guess I'll have to upgrade before 2025 :).
