READ ALL CAPS IN TORGUE HIGH-FIVE FLEXINGTON'S VOICE

Anyway ... didn't play any games last night because I was tired, and not playing games tonight because I have to get up at 3:30 to make a 5:00 meeting, which is followed immediately by a 6:00 meeting. MEETINGS

I don't mind snow, but the fact that I have to clear it off the driveway is annoying. Adam clears it as well, but I'll be damned if that shit doesn't keep coming back. Running out of salt, too ... did I mention how awesome a broadcast spreader is for salting? Only problem I have is that the drive wheel slides on the ground so I have to kind of lean forward and push the right side of it down while I salt, so my center of gravity is all wonky.

Holy fucking shit... I had no idea how much the prices on GPUs were being inflated. I knew it was sort of rampant on AMD stuff, but for the most part Nvidia was immune. I guess not any longer. Over $1,000 for a GTX 1070? Jeee-SUS!

Yep.

Can't wait for this whole cryptocurrency thing to be over just so I can buy a fuckin' video card.

Just got back from doing over 20 miles on the bike.

Pretty good considering I didn't exercise at all for the entire month of December and only a couple of days in the first part of January. Back on it hardcore though... the weather isn't below freezing anymore so I have no excuses.

I removed VMware Workstation Player and have reinstalled VirtualBox. Setting up a VM running Ubuntu Artful right now so I can get adb running, so I can root/ROM my tablet. Not sure how well LineageOS would run on my V20 because of that second screen and DAC. That and I use Android Pay, so I don't necessarily want to root the phone and put extra effort into hiding the fact that it'd be rooted.
