So the little 3570K / H61N ITX build in the Snow Edition case is sitting dormant for now until I need it for something. Eventually I plan to get it setup so I can easily use it for mundane tasks like video encoding - I'm just not sure how I want to go about that. Finding a physical KVM that supports 4K video is rough and they're expensive as hell. So I may be looking at software solutions like remote desktop or VNC or whatever.
RDP runs nicely on 4k. I use it to get to headless machines (so ... like, every machine) at work every day. I also use it to do maintenance on Julie's laptop when I can't be bothered to turn my chair 30 degrees to the left.

Got all 4 of my wisdom teeth out on Friday, and I still kinda feel like shit.

Thankfully I had scheduled my vacation this week, so now I don't have to worry about showing up at work.

All our sites were down for a bit this morning as I forgot to renew bbpix.com (and I use bbpix.com for our DNS servers). Everything should be normal again now.

Spent all morning doing my taxes... fuckity fuck fuck-a-roo I hate this time of year.

I did my taxes back in January.

Still wish I had that refund. That'd be nice.

The UPS behind the TV is beeping. It's fucking maddening, yo.

The more I look at the God of War iteration of the PS4 Pro, the more I want it.

Gigantic picture here.

And then I want to slap an SSD in there too, as is the custom.

Debating if I want to buy a screwdriver just so I can take apart my SNES and see if it's fixable. It hasn't been used in over a decade, so not much would be lost if I tossed it, but nostalgia is a bitch.

edit: According to the internets, looks like the problem I have is common and the solution is "get a new system". Well then.

Man, I've never seen an NES up and die before.

I really need to get hold of one for my collection, and an N64. One of these days...

SNES, not NES. I mean, I can forgive a CPU for crapping out 27 years after release.

On the other hand, now I have these games I don't really know what to do with. Maybe I'll buy another console, maybe I'll just sell the games. Dunno yet.
