Seems weird that this is no chat thread on /chat/.
Seems like the optimum place for a chat thread to be, right?

I went on a big long walk today with my dog around the neighborhood and through the park.
It was nice, idk why i dont do it every day. It really makes you at eases and just, in an all around better mood.

I always get a mental block and convince myself that just wandering around is a "waste of time" as if sitting at home on my computer is better. Or like, that i have to travel to some exotic place to go hiking, i cant just do it in the woods by my house.
This is a habit that i NEED to force, for our health.

>tfw I have literally been inside for 11 days straight
I'ma try to take inspiration from you and walk somewhere, anywhere, when I get home.

I fly back to Boston tomorrow. I'm gonna deeply miss Mac (again) but I just couldn't do a six-week trip again. Two was enough.

It has been really nice. We got like 9 out of the 12 days I will have been here to have a lot of private time, and I'm sure you can imagine the stuff we got up to during that. 😳😏

I miss my Xbox with my huge TV, I miss sleeping in my bed that is actually big enough for me, I kinda miss my mom and my brother, etc.
I love Mac so much though, and I can't wait for his next visit to my house in March. 😊❤

No good walking places in philly?

Yeah, i get that. There is nothing wrong with being homesick, even if you love the place your at. Wernt you guys discussing something more permanent?

Chewy!MUSIC.FbVYCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 1533

>>1527
Pittsburgh, not Philly, but the issue is kinda two things, one is that legally I was supposed to quarantine for 10 days after arrival which was...almost the entire trip, and the other is that Mac's neighborhood really isn't...especially nice, compared to mine. And it also doesn't have as many places to go in general unless you venture into the city (Mac is still in the suburbs). There's a much stronger feel of things being old, decrepit, neighbors aren't very nice, angry dogs everywhere, lots of hills, etc. Idk what even would have been open to Uber to in terms of walking destinations.

Something more permanent we want to aim for this year, yeah. My brother is looking at options for moving out of the house we share and I'm thinking of following suit. I have to look at apartment prices in different towns and figure out what compromises I'm willing to make in terms of the safety levels of where I live, the distances between things, stuff like that. All I need is a one-bedroom apartment potentially. I'm apparently not gonna have Section 8 come through anytime soon, so...yeah, I have to figure something else out. also lowkey there are kinda complicated family-related situations that are making things on Mac's end really challenging, and some of that is why I am looking forward to being home in the first place.

and now I'm kind of having a panic attack -_-

>>1544
We'll figure something out, yeah.

Also in case anyone was wondering, I am back home in MA safe and sound. Seems I remembered to pack everything I needed.

I waited 3hrs at the PA airport with Mac because we got there way earlier than we needed to. Not exaggerating--3 hours sitting at my gate. Then I was on the plane about two hours altogether if you include boarding, takeoff and waiting for the people in front of me to get off after landing in Boston. Kind of a cool thing--I didn't have anyone sitting next to me. It wasn't nearly a full flight. So that was nice.

Mom picked me up at the Boston airport and we stopped at McDonald's on the way home, I was famished. I get home to find out that I can't drink any tap water until Saturday or I could get get infected with echoli. Yikes. We have to boil tap water and/or buy bottled water.

On top of ALL that, my phone's charging port is broken. It has to remain in an ultra-specific position and not move a fraction of an inch to remain charging. So I basically need to go buy a new phone ASAP. Yay...

I got a new phone. Charging port broke on the old one. Would have cost somewhere around $200 to repair basically whereas an upgrade was only $80 up front (including a protective case).

They initially delivered it to the wrong house because after we moved a few years ago, the address on our account apparently never got updated, so that was fun.

They also didn't include the pin tool to eject the sim card tray and nothing I tried was working until my brother found an old one he had.

Aside from that everything has been pretty smooth with it, barring a few minor complaints. I can customize my alarm to be any Spotify song I want, so I could wake up to Death Grips if I wanted lol.

The new phone is a good bit bigger than the old one.

Messing around with Dolphin a bit. Probably should be getting to bed soonish, but I suppose I'm not really feeling it.
Speaking of things I should get around to doing, I bought a Noctua NF-A12x25 for my heatsink that I really should get around to putting on there. Works pretty fine already, and the Ryzen 5800X is supposed to run a bit hotter anyway, but I still want it to be as cool as I can get it.

It's a GameCube and Wii emulator. Not really playing anything in particular right now, but might give Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door another go. Also have Slugfest 2004, which I'm hoping to play with a friend later.
Well, it's also a Noctua heatsink that I have, and it came with a pretty decent fan, but the one I bought can push even more air. It's great for something like a heatsink where you need a lot of static pressure. Figure I can use the one that came with it as an exhaust fan on the heatsink, since it came with a mounting bracket for a second fan.

Dolphin is pretty well made, has fairly modest requirements from what I remember too. Can run decently even on a Core 2 Duo or Core 2 Quad system, as long as they're clocked around 3ghz or so.
I'm running a Ryzen 7 5800X in this system. It's an 8 core CPU.

I was able to get everything for their retail prices, plus there were a lot of small things I didn't need to buy since I already had them.
Hmm, CPU is on the warmer side (are you just idling, or doing some task in the background) but it's within operational limits. It's the MOBO that's really concerning.

Mhm, that little fan has to reach some high RPMs to push all of the air out through the exhaust vent. It is a useful design for cases with little or bad airflow though.
