Ended up with a completely jacked computer
So if I’m going to spend money on anything, it should be a nice work space.
Similarly, a few years ago, I bought myself a really sweet computer. It was a single piece computer with a touchscreen; essentially, it was like having a 27″ table computer to work on. I loved that thing and it made working that much nicer.
Last week, I decided to upgrade the processor for a slight step up in power. I installed it during the mess of building out my desk and everything else and ended up blowing out my computer.
Complete black screen of death. There seems to be a string of completely destroyed computers in my life.
Meanwhile, I had a portfolio of work due to client so I had to do that on my office computer or my actual 10″ tablet (which is as fun as a root canal) while rushing back to (a) finish building out my home office and (b) trying to salvage my machine.
tl;dr: The furniture is essentially assembled but my computer has given up the ghost. So my physical and digital states are both a mess right now.
I ended up buying a set of parts – essentially, this exact list of components – to build myself a dual-booting Windows/Macintosh system.
This has been a really expensive and tiring few weeks. Hopefully, after I’m done, I’ll be happy I did it.
As always, it’s about making it to the other side.
Location: in the midst of computer and furniture parts
Mood: still so tired
Music: in the strangest places, picking up the pieces we break
