Time to upgrade

PXL_20211023_000621657 I won't be streaming for a few days, as I will be bringing my PC in for an upgrade. I need a better CPU, which means a new motherboard and new compatible RAM. And better gaming, with an improved ability to run multiple screens. The GPU is still a good one - good thing as they are terribly expensive now.

It was warmish today, so I cleaned up the last of my balcony, brought the plants inside, and bundled up the furniture in a blue tarp. I certainly notice the shorter days, lately, we're only a couple of months from the Winter Solstice.  And Christmas.

Not a lot of 'gems' today, but here's what I noticed: 

  • The New York Times has a good explanation about supply chains - what they are, why they are broken. You may need a subscription. 
  • Jared Kushner is in talks with Saudi Arabia about getting a few dollars from them for his new investment firm. $2 billion dollars. Glad he won't come out of the Trump Presidency penniless. 
  • If you need some art to brighten up your place, you missed a Picasso sale in Las Vegas.
