Progress on my custom mini itx case.
Having too much flex with the 4mm wood. So I will add some metal parts as support. I have to recut the wood parts anyway.
I am worried that the pcie 16 riser cable might not work, since I haven't tried it and it looks like it might loose contacts and there are a lot of ppl having problems with similar products😨
#Capitalism is a reasonable economic system that destroys 100 million trees a year to mass-produce something that literally no one asked for and literally everyone hates
Like I had a friend who reinstated windows from scratch every year to keep the system fast and in good shape.
Others just blame it on the old hardware whenever windows is slow. However basic office work and a responsive Desktop should be absolutely no problem these days even on 20 years old hardware.
Sometimes I hear people argue, that Linux is to user unfriendly or a bad user experience or something along these lines.
But when I then turn to Windows and how not only myself, but also exclusive Windows users, can run into trouble (for example Bluescreens with cryptic error messages/freeses) or having a bad user experience (updates, slow responsivenes)...
It just seams users are more forgiving with Windows or at least don't draw consequences from this.
While searching for some CPU cooler mounting brackets I misplaced somewhere I found my old PC hardware. I remember that either the main board or the CPU died and since it was already old by the time I went with a whole new system. Any one in need of DDR1 memory? I guess it's not even worth putting on eBay or something. Also this beauty of graphics card.
Some how I like the cooler art.
TFW you want to build a new Gaming PC and already hunt down all the parts at good rates. But buying would be a waste of money since you don't have time or motivation for gaming anymore.
@lucidiot As stated in my other post: The default wallpaper of a popular OS😅
I kind of liked that wallpaper, but it didn't showcase the OS of my choice. So I fixed it XD
@maiki yes, do so!
@ParadeGrotesque yes, switched to mosh. Makes stuff easier. But it's still a pain
Watching and reading about modern hardware (like presented at the CES) always makes me value my existing perfectly working hardware a little less. Frustrating to see all that powerful graphic cards, CPUs, VR glasses and curved widescreen Monitors knowing that it will be a few years till I can afford any of them due to them being outdated by that time again by even better hardware...
I removed all my toots in Jan. 2018.
See my pinned introduction toot.
