I upgraded from Pixel 2 to 3. This should have been by my first choice all along.

It seems like QR codes were unfashionable for a long time, but that has recently changed.

Is my perception accurate?

How do you feel about them?

I'm once again leaving the office in as good a shape as I can manage. 😅

We actually hired someone today just to get through the day.

Everything's fine. 😅

I turn on my PC.

The local wildlife are immediately sterilised by the excessive output from my four exposed nuclear reactors running at a critically risky heat output.

The sound of 10,000 cooling fans deafens the city’s morning traffic as my warehouse of 500 parallel-chained AMD Razer Threadrippers bursts into life, forming the equivalent processing power of 2015 in one room.

Nearby, my cluster of Nvidia 5090 Test Cards begins to warp the local time continuum as they calculate answers man was never meant to know.

Very gently, I open Microsoft Teams.

Instantly, the already deafening noise of fans increases to a murderous wail as they try to keep my equipment at operating temperatures. A nuclear reactors’ fusion catches up with its cooling and explodes destroying the lives of millions. The floor begins to melt away as my processors over clocked ten-fold reach critical mass and descend directly into hell. My Nvidia cluster collapses into a singularity and begins to devour the planet.

Quickly now, I open a text chat, it’s a bit laggy.

The sheer struggle of loading some text destroys the remaining systems. Me and my equipment are deleted from reality by an unknown overseer.

I actually laughed at this one, which probably means I'm super lame.

My wifi got so much worse since my new neighbor moved in. 😳

I know I'm doing everything right financially, saving for retirement, etc. But this doesn't really feel like living. It feels like subsisting.

Wondering if I should borrow money to build a house and rent it out.

It's not something I'm super excited about, but it is a relatively safe endeavor; if I walk away, I wouldn't go to jail; the lender would just sell the house and I'd be right back where I started.

If all goes well, I'd have some extra money coming in 30 years from now.

I hate to say this but I think the real Right Answer would have been to stay on Windows 7 and focus my energy and attention on stuff that matters.

I mean, I know why. It's because every Gnome update breaks stuff so I want to get away from it.

It's just that I have many other more pressing matters. 😅

I spent the evening playing with Fluxbox. I don't know why I let myself do stuff like this.

"AppIconMenu got renamed to AppMenu in Gnome 41"

So glad Gnome developers are hard at work improving the user experience! 🙌🏼
