Building a Desktop…

August 9, 2015 § Leave a comment

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.

Fuck Viruses/Malware… Hard

Ugh! Just spent a good 2 hours trying to fix my sister’s computer – 40 minutes trying to find a solution for it (on a different computer), 20 minutes executing said solution (and it not working), another 30 minutes looking for another then giving up and using a restore point from earlier this month/year. The rest of that time was spent doing virus/malware scans just to make sure it’s gone (and I’m still not entirely sure of that).
