First World Problems

Good Morning All!

Well it’s just gone noon here, so technically….
Hope all is well with you and yours, wherever you happen to find yourself this morning.
Been up since around 730. Not sure when I actually woke up. But I did spend some time trying to force myself to go back to sleep. Hardly ever works. For me. Once I open my eyes, I may as well get up.

But I keep trying! *grins*

First World Problems!


Starting to get frustrated with my old 2007 MacBookPro. Still runs (mostly) good. But man, is it getting slow. Despite all the work I’ve put into it, I’m starting to wonder if maybe ol’ faithful isn’t near the end of her life cycle.

Maybe a full back up and a clean install of the OS is warranted. I can do that, but seriously? It’s a pain in the ass.

Bears thinking on… Really don’t need to spend the money on a new machine unless I absolutely HAVE TO.

When They Pry It Out of my Cold, Dead Fingers

Have had a really hard time leaving Borderlands 2 alone. I could (and sadly, have) spend days playing this silly ass game. But nothing would get done.

I was playing last night and thinking, ‘What did you accomplish today?’ ‘Well I made level 30 with my Siren.’

‘That’s it?’ Sadly. Yes.

Made myself a promise not to pick up the controller until later on tonight… And to get some things done around here first. If I accomplish nothing, then I do not get to play…

Yeah. Right...

Ridiculous! *laughs*

What Am I Listening To

Got a new playlist from iTunes called “Alt Country Women’. For those inclined to have a looksee here’s a handy link to iTunes: Alt Country Women

Got a total of 74 songs. I’m about 14 in and it’s sounding pretty good. Don’t really care for the Pop sounding stuff they call country these days. More of a classic country guy myself. Of course I can’t really limit myself to a single genre of anything. Alt Country is nothing like Pop music as far as I can tell.

This list has music on it that’s over 30 years old. Some less than 2 YO.

I’m for another cup of coffee and then I’ll try to get off my ass and DO something. Got plenty of that around...

G'day sir, hope you got more done than just your cuppa Joe. Remember, no borderlands until something's done! *grin*

Yes, games can definitely suck you in. I used to play back in the day and burned out an original PlayStation by playing it too much, LOL!!

A lot of "country" has definitely gone in the direction of "pop" if Taylor Swift is any indication. :)

Memory and drive space aren't the issue here. I maxed the RAM out long ago. And it is still viable.

I replaced the HD (twice now, heh) with a 500GB hybrid drive. Plenty of space yet.

Usually have to fill a drive on a mac to about 2/3's to 3/4 of capacity before it starts weirding out.

I'm thinking I need to do a spyware or adware scan. And yeah. Macs can pick that kind of BS up too. Effin' sketchy Web sites.
