I know I haven’t blogged anything, giving myself a bit of a breather as I pursue other things outside of blogging.
Youjo Senki might be talked about in a Quick Thought once episode 6 comes out, same goes for Miss Kobayashi’s Maid Dragon. Other than that, February is Katsucon, and unlike Anime USA, I’ll be working as a staff member, the first time doing so, and here’s to a new experience. I also have to call it quits on my current laptop, an ASUS 15-inch one with a touchscreen. I don’t know the exact model, just that fitted my needs. I decided on getting something a bit more robust and will probably take some actual abuse and maybe programming ineptitude to kill, and will probably talk about that when I’ve verified my purchase and it’s in front of me.
That said, I’ve heard nothing but praise for Xotic and might be a good waste of my tax refund (or the money the government holds hostage for some folks). I just need something I can game on the go and write my blog posts when I’m not at my actual desktop. With a 1050Ti, it’ll actually be a bit more modern than the 970 I have in my desktop, but it’s more or less me future proofing it for now. Yes I know I can put in a 1060 or better into it but the gaming intended for it will be light, more or less playing Civilization while I’m on flights or World of Warships while I’m at my parents house. I had considered the Dell 7567 even with the screen being so hated. Something about switching from an IPS panel from the previous 7559 to the TN, where I’ve noted it’s probably where they decided to save some money in order to shlep in a 1050 and 1050Ti series GPU into a 800-950USD range computer.
What made me shy away from that was the fact that any upgrades not bought from Dell would void the warranty (so you’re fucked apparently when you buy RAM from say, Amazon or Newegg), and the fact the computer I have an eye on has a bit more bells and whistles even though it ended up costing a bit more than the Dell when fully kitted. That and other things that had won over a friend who noted that the 6-cell battery is also removable.
Regardless, I know I’ll get some comments on here on why I didn’t just buy a cheap laptop or the Dell and all I’m going to say is: My Return.
As for what is going on now, I’m slightly under the weather but thankfully it’s at the tail end of it. The weather is really finicky, being in the mid 70s Fahrenheit yesterday to 30s today, and repeat that over the past few days, someone was bound to catch something, and I was that someone.
With that, I started to binge watch videos. One of the stuff I’m watching is actually the 18th Century Cooking series by the Jas. Townsend and Son, Inc company of historical reproductions. I gotta say, I kinda want some payne perdu now. This is like 3 years ago, where me being bedridden meant I binge watched what episodes of Mikakunin de Shinkoukei was out and I loved the romcom but really got enamored by the food porn.
Y’alls have a good time now, I’m back to bed trying to feel better. That way I can still justify going out to see John Wick 2 tomorrow.
