I've killed my computer

Well, I don’t think it was anything I did, I mean how do you enduce motherboard failure? The bright side is that the me of 3 years ago bought a 3 year warranty that is coming in handy now. My school is a Dell campus so our tech support center has certified techs, should be back to me by the end of the week, no cost to…

Any opinions on the base model Surface Book? Any opinions on the base model Surface Book?

I’m currently selling my Surface Pro 2 on eBay. It has served me well for 1.5 years but the small screen really was starting to get to me. I was thinking of just upgrading to a Pro 3, they go for just about at much as my loaded Pro 2 will go for and they have the bigger screen.

Might not be what y’all are into but it’s a solar car race team with my university. The thing is, we don’t have an engineering program at my university, we’re a liberal arts school.

Had a manual too. I fit lots of stuff in the back, used it like a truck.

Not that I’ve been active enough to warrant a goodnight, just found this old picture of my Dart and it seemed like an appropriate goodnight image.

So I have to update some building information sheets to look more contemporary. Now I can make this look pretty, no problem, I just use Indesign for this kind of stuff. The thing is building supervisors will be filling in the information on their own. I was thinking I could just send out a spreadsheet to be filled out…

Still have it, but college has kept it in storage for over 2 years now.

Got a dashcam! Got a dashcam!

A118c, ordered from Gear Best. Took a month to get here from China. Only about $36, and I think it has pretty good quality for the price. So far I’d recommend it, but time will tell. Pretty crappy conditions for a test, with the wipers going and the sun not being out.
