My computer died!

I drove that poor old beast into the ground, I fear. I have to use a loaner and a laptop until my shiny new “Maximum Overdrive” is built.

It was a 6-year-old “Franken-puter,” which had a RaidMax (TM) Thunder V2 735-W power system, an AMD Radeon GPU, and a 500 Gb hard drive which was all slapped onto 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.

Anyway, we had to drive two hours to Vancouver to drop the dead CPU off and retrieve the data and then decide if I wanted to have a gaming powerhouse built, which was pretty easy. I can’t wait to see the new model 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. I just might even get a new mouse and some better headphones. If I’m going to be live-streaming then I need proper gaming gear.

After discussing, debating over, and finalizing the specs for my new computer, it was time for lunch and I had a hunger for some sushi. My husband and I ate at a place that 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 and I am happily snacking on them 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, but I think that the pantheon forgives me for that unavoidable lapse of attention.

That sums up my weekend adventure. The weather has been fantastic so I’ve been taking advantage of the heat: out in the garden, out on the beach, or out in the sun-room sweating on the elliptical and the home gym.

Life is sweet.
