Currently updating the app I use to track car-related costs. It's taking foreverrrrrr....

(Entering the data that is, not updating the app itself.)

"Oh, apparently the other maintenance guy was looking at the wrong unit when he said yours needed to be replaced."

Sitting in immediate care because my hand is still fucked up and I'm annoyed by that. Also, my right upper arm and shoulder are being bitches. I normally sleep on my right, but overnight the pain grows to the point that I roll onto my back, which makes me able, which makes Julie mad, which results in my being woken up and told to roll over onto my side, which then repeats over and over all night.

Why don't I roll onto my left side, you ask? Mario. He sleeps between Julie and me for whatever reason, despite the mattress we put on the floor next to our bed. He doesn't sleep still, though, oh no no no. He punches, kicks, steals pillows and covers, attempts to shove stuffed animals up your ass, etc. If I sleep on my right, I can put a buffer pillow between him and my back. If I sleep on my left, I expose my soft bits to peril. So, basically, fuck.

Anyway... Yeah. X-rays incoming. Fucking wreck, man.

Nope, nothing. Must be gremlins because nothing was on the x-ray. Gave me some ibuprofen and told me to fuck off. Now I wait for the ludicrous bill.

I got the pain meds they prescribed me yesterday. Some opioid somesuch...tramadol or something? It, along with the 800mg ibuprofen horse pills, are doing nothing since I took them two and a half hours ago. Unless they help me play better as Gaige in BL2, because I utterly devastated the Bloodshot base/dam on my TVHM play through. Took me 9 minutes from beginning to end.

Yummmm pain meds....


I'm up and running with my newly rebuilt machine!

Out with thee Thermaltake Core X9 and ASUS Maximus VIII Ranger, and in with the Thermaltake Core V21 and Gigabyte Z170MX Gaming 5!

Misc pictures of the carnage:




Even the damn BOX for the V21 is much smaller than the Core X9 itself!




Comparison shot, my machine on bottom still built in the Core X9. The new Core V21 on top.




Solo glamour shot of the new case. I uber love it. For under $70 it's amazing!




New motherboard goodness!




Such delicate pinnnnnnns!



CPU and CPU cooler mounted, just have to attach the fans!




This is one of the few complaints I have about the V21. Built in motherboard standoffs. No fucking bueno.



This makes me uncomfortable - The Noctua NH-D15 is almost touching the backplate of the ASUS GTX 1080... ugh....




Almost time for the smoke test!




It LIVES!!!

So what are you doing with the X9? Seems like a hell of a lot of case to have lying around.

I'm currently on two pain meds: 800mg of ibuprofen, and whatever tramadol dose they gave me. I've been on top of the ibuprofen, but I still don't have full use of my hand -- handshakes (a big thing this week because sales reps and business partners are in town, and they love my team) are a problem. Also having some right shoulder issues. The tramadol was utterly useless in stopping any sort of pain, and it didn't help much with sleep either. I went to sleep on my left side, which is bad in and of itself, but my snoring was "demonic" according to Julie, so I had to roll onto my right side and tolerate my damned shoulder. That repeated a good 15 times. Mario didn't climb into our bed, though -- he stayed on the mattress we set up on the floor because he was apparently scared of my snoring.

So, I'm going to give it another shot tonight, and if it doesn't work, I'm taking it back to the damn pharmacy for disposal because it's useless.

I've got it up for sale along with the old motherboard. :P

Definitely way too much damn case to have sitting around.
