So, I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything; I’ve been extremely busy with work and have just been relaxing once I get home, so nothing has really been happening.

I did, however, just order a new desktop — parts for one anyway. I ordered them this past week, and some of it has arrived already, with the rest coming in tomorrow. I don’t know why UPS can’t just deliver on Saturdays, or I’d already have it… it’s in Jacksonville for Pete’s sake! I went a little overboard, but gamers and programmers need different specs; a gamer doesn’t need that much processing power (CPU), but needs a good GPU, but a programmer needs a decent CPU and RAM, especially if they use a virtual machine as their development server — at least that’s what I’ve seen. My build was a little on the expensive side because I wanted DDR4 RAM and a newer CPU. I also needed a case and monitors (as I was working with 2x 19″ 4:3 monitors. I only went a little bigger however, but it’s amazing what a few more inches will do for you (that’s what she said).
