Macbeth the Usurper

Game Book Hiatus

I made a decision today to stop buying game books for now. I've been buying month-to-month now for a while. I don't actually read the books. I flip through them once and put them on the shelf. Aside from having them, all they do is take up space. Put that together with the new house, where everything will live in boxes for a while, and you get a situation where I won't have room for the new stuff. 

Honestly, I have no idea where anything will go, or even how much space I will have. I honestly think most of my stuff will stay in boxes. Just finding an acceptable place for the desk will be a challenge, let alone my bookshelves.

So, it's time for a break.

I'll also look over what I have and consider selling some things, especially those things with no chance of being used. They aren't special to me, so whether I have them or not doesn't matter. I'll sell off the highest value with the lowest potential use.

Fixing Video Cards

I salvaged a bad video card. The fan had gone bad, and you just can't get those fans anywhere. I got a fan which didn't fit, modified so that it would fit, drilled out holes on the card, and did some clever wiring on the PC.

I doubled my video processing power for $14. Whoot.
