Delayed updates but the motherboard, CPU, RAM, and hard disk (an NVMe SSD – first time heard of these) are ready. Power supply unboxed. Are there enough cables?!? After three hours of building (and breaks), the assembly begins.

The PC Build Begins!

Had some PC parts available so figured I’d supplement with a few more and build a PC (though I still love my Mac). I am using this YT video as a reference. Hope it’s enough to get me through this.

Since almost everyone was buying the launch exclusive Air Force 1, most of the great sneaker selection upstairs was untouched. But… the line up at the entrance was full with wristbands up to 1000. So instead, I sampled their […]

After getting a newer Orbi mesh system (RBR750) for better performance and coverage for the household, I wanted to continue using existing gear like my Orbi Voice (RBS40V).

More COVID Closures

In these Rona times, the closures due to COVID continue to climb. While walking around Ala Moana, I noticed a few more shuttered storefronts. Banana Republic, amazingly, has been closed for some time. Abercrombie for Kids closed its doors. Forever 21 didn’t make it in 2021. Foot traffic at the mall does seem to be […]

AT&T Chat to the Rescue!

In these COVID times when left is right, down is up, now is later, and face-to-face means online, who knew text chatting with a total stranger on a computer would provide better results than talking to real people in real life?
