  • Upgraded the CPU in my gaming rig to an i7 7700k, and took the i5 CPU and built my wife her own dedicated desktop.

Please do not climb in, on, or around a hoisting machine without first securing the lift. Have a knowledgeable assistant lock the boom BEFORE exiting the machine. A skid steer loader can be a terribly unforgiving machine.
      I truly appreciate your concern. However, I work by myself so there is no assistant. I wish there was so I would have someone to blame for mistakes but alas.....

      • My daughter wanted a gaming system. Her brother has a high-end system that he got for his birthday last year and my daughter just got a mid-range gaming system for her birthday. She loves to play Roblox and Fortnite. She's a real pro playing them on her iPad and she needs to get used to using the mouse. She loves Paint 3D too. He desk is coming soon.

          • I made a zero-based budget.

            Over the couple of years I have been working on improving my financial knowledge and improving my financial situation. I've never found myself in serious financial trouble, but over the last year or so I have been tightening things up and really paying attention to where my money goes. I've never had any issues paying bills, but it's amazing how much money gets siphoned off by various service changes and unnecessary expenses when you aren't being super diligent. Over the last year or so I've managed to eliminate all debts except my mortgage, boost my mortgage payments, and eliminate every service change and expense I could find. I've got one last change I'm fighting with the credit card company over, they're giving me the run-around to avoid it. If it's not removed from the next statement I'll be raising hell with them.

            I've had a general budget for years, where you list your income and expenses and as long as income cover expenses you're satisfied and just let the excess accumulate. Now with a zero-based budget every dollar that comes in has an allocated place and I'll be able to see if I'm achieving my goals from month to month. I've just got to keep myself motivated to keep up with transactions, but let's be honest - money is a great motivator.

            • I think a really good zero-based budget is just adding more zeros to your income?

              • Try adding a comma to your income. Much easier than micro managing a zero-based budget

                • There's no substitute to making more money, but all that means is that you buy more expensive toys. My wife is the saving type, keeps me fairly well restrained. Good thing, my company has hired so many pilots that I hardly fly anymore, which means min monthly guarantee. Going to make less money this year than last...

                    • I could make more money than I do right now. But the trade offs are not worth it (having to move to a city, never gonna happen). There are other things more important than money I think.

                        One of the nice things about money is that the more you have, the easier it is to make more. It's quite easy to get a ~5% or more yearly return with a managed investment account on the conservative side

                          Cool. Lend us a million each and we'll look after it for a few years for you

                                That would be nice. My money comes from physically asserting/latching 1's and 0's in a novel way with hardware, or generating novel streams of 1's and 0's with software.
