New (to me) PC. Fantastic find! $50 on FB marketplace. Haven't found them for less than $200 elsewhere. :)

This'll replace my prior testbed PC. Not that the old one was working badly, but had been looking into various upgrades for it.

This was cheaper than any upgrade. πŸ˜‚

Crock pot chicken and dumplings? Totally nailed it.

This is the 4th time I've made it. Each time has been a bit better than the last. Happy about that. :)

This past week, I've made a dedicated effort to use Masto more often. Figured that I'm running a server so I may well or no point in running it. :)

Forgot how much I like it here. Y'all are awesome. Stay frosty.

Saw this today while shopping. Squeezable sauerkraut. What a time to be alive! πŸ˜†

Sort of want to build a new PC as a project, but it's SO difficult to justify doing so when I have this old desktop running so well at this point.

That, and I have better things to spend the money on, probably.

But still.. the want is real.

Hmm.. I wonder where @calzonesteve went.. Probably out partying somewhere with Hobbs.

Kinda going back and fourth on if I want to pre-order the new Senran Kagura game.

I mean, I DO, I just don't know if I want to spend the money on that right now.

Tinder Hard mode: straight man under 6' with no dog

Nope, just needed a $10 battery. Which I had to pay for out of pocket because they haven't approved my expense request for like.. 2 months but whatever. $10 to be able to work outside again? I'll eat that. :)

Hmm. Curious if my work laptop throttles it's speed based on the health of the battery.

I've had this laptop (Dell Inspiron E6410) for about 6 years now. The past 6 months or so, I've noticed that the battery was crap. Barely held a charge any more. Took about 15 minutes to boot up and get to the point where I could work.

Bought a new battery. Installed it today. Holy crap, it took about 5 minutes to boot today. Everything is noticeably faster. Here I was thinking I needed a new laptop!

And the touch screen isn't super sensitive so she keeps waiting for it to come back round again after she misses it. Haha. Eventually the worker shows her how it works.

Some people just don't get technology I guess. :)

So I wanted to refill my drink on the way out of the BK and they have one of those coke machines with the touch screen.

Well there's this lady in front of me, just standing there with her finger hovering over the screen. I'm wondering wtf that she's doing.

Well, know where there's the main menu and it is scrolling past the drinks to show you what is in the different section? She thinks it's a video game I guess because she's waiting for what she wants to go past and trying to hit it quickly.

First attempt at making Brunswick Stew. Hopefully it tastes as good as it smells!!!

Ya know, it's not that often that I feel like I can say this but... I felt really motivated today and feel like I accomplished a lot. I'm pretty happy about that.

So, good night world, and I hope this trend continues into tomorrow. 😊

Decided to give Evie Launcher a go for a bit. Wanted to try something that was possibly a bit more lightweight than Nova.

Wish me luck. So far, so good. :)

Dear websites,

Stop asking me if I want to receive push notifications.

I do not want to receive push notifications.


Suddenly -- like, within the last month -- my Mastodon instance is taking up about twice the hard drive space as before.

I wonder if it's because of all of the people home for the holidays were posting up a storm and it's a side effect of that.

Not a complaint, mind, more of an observation. :)

So I've found that I really like making my own pasta sauce over buying the jarred kind. Total by-accident discovery, but worth it. :D

When I started this shift, I was totally cool with it. Now, I'd rather have my nights free to spend with friends or family.

Not being on call any more is also a big draw.

Never thought that this was an option and I was OK with being on this shift indefinitely. But now that I know there's N end in sight, I'm hella impatient for it to happen. 😁

Welcome to b4ypstodon! I set up this Mastodon instance just to see if I could get it up and running. Not really sure if there's a theme yet, or have any idea of what I want to make of this instance but.. It is what it is. :) Semi-private instance. If you'd like to create an account here, drop me an e-mail and I will send you an invite.
