No project this week? What madness is this?
Well, I spent a chunk of my weekend helping my Mom get her house ready for winter, and the rest of my free time getting a new development PC set up. I don’t think installing storm doors is particularly on-topic for this blog, and there’s usually nothing very hack-worthy about setting up a pre-built PC.
Come to think of it, I did spend a fair amount of time poking at the innards of the new machine with a screwdriver trying to isolate an annoying, but very quiet, harmonic noise. Loosening one of the fan screws just a half turn seems to have done the trick, at least for the moment. The hardest noises to track down are always the ones at the edge of your perception, so I’ll just have to keep my ears open and see what happens. And yes, I have been told before that I’m overly sensitive about those sorts of things.
Other than that, it’s just been a matter of installing one application after another. Okay, copying my entire Steam folder over, and then installing apps.
But never fear! I’ve got some new toys to talk about, some new projects I’m working on, and some big ideas to announce. So next week, something cool! I promise!
