Well, that was easy…

…just a couple of mouse-clicks, and here I am at the layout that I’m used to, with the other junk in another tab – now I see some of what I was missing on BOTH pages, LOL! I love my brain…it solves most problems quite easily – problematic people are another story, entirely!

Time for some New Moon music on a Tuesday afternoon – which is the perfect song to start this 5-song post! Enjoy…

My computer died!

I drove that poor old beast into the ground, I fear – so, I have to use a loaner and a laptop until my shiny new “Maximum Overdrive” is built, LOL! It was a 6-year-old “Franken-puter,” which had a RaidMax (TM) Thunder V2 735-W power system, an AMD Radeon GPU (I don’t have the specs of that on-hand, LOL), a 500 Gb hard drive, all slapped on to the original Acer (C) motherboard and using the original “green drive.” It ran on the quad-core Intel (C) i3 processor, and the memory had been expanded to the maximum of 16 Gb. The new one I’m having built will make my old one look like a slug, I think!

Anyway, we had to drive two hours to Vancouver to drop the dead CPU off and retrieve the data, then decide if I wanted to have a gaming powerhouse built. That was a pretty easy decision! Can’t wait to see the shiny, new model, especially since it will be attached to a shiny, new curved-screen monitor! I’m tired of fighting glare from the window, since it’s been far more sunny here the past two summers. Also, I just might – MIGHT, mind you – get a new mouse and some better headphones. If I’m going to be live-streaming, I need proper gaming gear!

After discussing, debating over, and finalizing the specs for my new computer, it was time for lunch. I had a hunger for some sushi so we ate at a place I used to go to after work on Fridays, which is only two blocks from where I used to reside. Plenty of leftovers to bring home, which I am snacking on as I type this. Sushi for brekkies is good stuff!

I hung my Wheel of the Year on Sunday, and realized that I wouldn’t be able to do my Lughnasadh / Lammastide post. I think that the pantheon forgives me for that lapse, as it was unavoidable. Poop doth occur, after all!

That sums up my weekend adventure. Believe it or not, I’m not suffering from gaming withdrawals. The weather has been fantastic, and I’ve been out in the garden, out on the beach, or out in the sun-room, sweating on the elliptical and the home gym. Life is great!
