We have made it to the middle of the week and are on the slide into the weekend.
Yesterday, at work, once things calmed down a bit I tried to figure out what I would need to build my wife a pretty epic photo editing PC. I found out it would be around two to three thousand dollars. Right now we do not have the money for a full build so we are just going to have to deal with it until we can. Unlike other things you can’t really buy one piece at a time, or your whole PC will be outdated by the time you get all the pieces. Sure you can buy hard drives that last years, but as far as most other parts you will want them at the same time. It is also just easier to keep track of. There are things that she could and would keep from her old one like her hard drives, speaker system, and monitor (that would come to me replacing my 11 year old one haha) The build is pretty great for what shes needs. It would have a 7th gen i7 processor, 16 GB DDR4 RAM, 120 GB SSD (For OS only), Two 6 TB hard drives @ 7200 RPM, as well as a GTX 1050. The external parts would be awesome as well including a brand new mechanical keyboard with extra keys for binding Photoshop macros, and two new 24 in monitors running at a 144Hz refresh rate. This all means one thing. She would have to clean off her desk haha. Anyway, we will have to wait and see what the tax refund fairly brings, and how we handle out basement water proofing before we decide.
We had a nice night in, and had home made chicken quesadillas for dinner. I really like the way my wife makes them. Everett ate with us and we gave him a couple strawberries. You can see how that goes:
He already ate most of a full one before that one haha. Needles to say he needed a bath afterwards. We rounded out our night by hanging out in the living room playing with Everett and watching some T.V..
This morning started pretty well. I was in a good mood, we got up early enough that we weren’t scrambling to get out the door, and the roads were OK. I got Everett to his babysitter, and then got an email that a few people didn’t have a network connection at work. That means the moment I walk in the door I have to get to work. We had three machines not connecting to the network. We found out that it was due to our likes of DHCP addresses being full. Those are the addressees within a certain range that are just handed out, when a device connects. Once we saw that it was only a matter of finding out what shouldn’t have been on the network, disconnecting them, and reconnecting the proper machines. Since then I have been back in a good mood. I had my coffee, and took care of a few other minor issues, but nothing too serious.
I will be riding out the rest of the day as smoothly as possible. That is all for me today, I hope you have a great Wednesday! I’ll see you tomorrow! 😀 😀
