Like many others, I just needed a place to put my junk. So, here it is.

You can post responses, feelings, or anything addressed to me here if you want, and I will try to respond. I will also post here about absences or other notifications.

Upgrading Computer

Postby Aladari Coolwater on July 29th, 2016, 4:31 am

I've been needing a new computer for ages. The one I currently use is over 8 years old, and it's just a little Dell laptop. It's been good to me, but it's just too outdated nowadays to run anything intensive. So, today I went pricing desktops...and came home ready to build my own; PC's are expensive as hell.

I don't know how many computer nerds we have out there, but I hoard electronics. Broken phones, cameras, laptops, desktops- you name it. So, since I already have a keyboard, monitor, mouse, and tower, I figured I could just slap a new motherboard, graphics card, and processor in the old tower, patch up a few loose wires, and call it good.

Turns out, there are way too many options for my poor, indecisive brain.

I want to be able to run graphics intensive games (think Payday 2, Fallout 4, Sims 4, etc.), so I thought I'd spring for an i7 quad core. Now I'm doubting myself. I've never liked AMD's, but they seem to get better reviews. Are people just stupid, or are AMD's really better? Besides that, I think I'd like a GTX 960 graphics card, but then how much RAM am I going to need? I'd like to be within an 800 dollar budget, if at all possible.

Maybe I'm just rambling to myself, but if anyone happens to know anything about any of those products or has any preferences, let me know. I really don't want to make a 400 dollar mistake. :disgust:

I apologize for the disappearance recently. Work dropped several extra shifts on me, and I was so exhausted that I hardly had strength to crawl into bed at night. The good news is, I'm back, and I was given a brief break to make up for the long streak of work, so I should catch up shortly.

This is a simple notice to my thread partners.

I've had several partners dissappear for awhile, and I have no way of knowing if they'll return. I want to have a clean plate for the season change, so if it has been more than 30 days since your last contact with me, I will be considering the thread inactive.

These threads will be put up for grading, and assumed abandoned. If you can't reply to your thread yet, and are running close to that deadline, please just PM me. I don't mind if your replies are extra slow. I just want to know which threads I'm waiting on and which are over so I know how many new threads to start for the new season.

Thanks all.

P.S. This only applies to this character (Aladari Coolwater). My other characters are nearly caught up to date, and much less worrisome.

Just as a fair warning, I have been sick as a dog, and on copious amounts of cold medication. The medicine makes me a little, ah...ditzy, to say the least. Especially Nyquill can have me writing things in my sleep (as discovered by last night's text to my ex :paranoid:). So if you notice a lot of extra typos or grammar errors, or just a lack of comprehensive language, I apologize. I'm not all here, but I'm trying not to fall behind.

Knowing my seasonal colds, I should be back to nomal within a few days- a week at most. Thanks for sticking with me.

Here's a pretty inspirations one for self realization? I found it quite appealing. :)

"With a heart of steel, I raise my blade in combat. The only thoughts I have in my mind is whether I'd return home to my family. I am a soldier, and will fight for love and peace. That is the way of being a Syliran Knight"-Ferrin.

Thanks for the encouragement, guys.

It's been a long week, but I'm hoping to get my energy and my spirits back up with a nice, refreshing weekend alone with my characters. And on the note of getting our spirits up, some musical comedy for my nerdy friends.



P.S. You should definitely check out Voltaire on YouTube. He has his own channel where he uploads nerdy-comedy music like this, and also some macabre humor. Some of it has a bit of an anti-religious voice, so be forewarned there, but most of it is good, quality entertainment.
