The thing about the movie Columbus is that it really makes you feel good about the prospect of moving to Columbus.

I'm surprised to learn that The Ohio State University is in Indiana. Academia is so counter-intuitive sometimes.

Wait until you see where Miami University is!

I should probably wipe all of this off the internet before The Ohio State University realizes how dumb I am, huh?

lol, I had to Google it myself. I got the impression from the movie that it wasn't Ohio's Columbus, but I was in no way positive.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

Spent a few hundred bucks to buy some PC parts to assemble a new desktop machine. My old desktop died a year or two back, I didn't have time to fix it and it was badly aging at that point anyways (Core2Duo era iirc). So I've been using my 10 year old laptop every since. Still runs pretty good to be honest. I can't believe it's not dead yet. Even the battery is still good for 90 minutes.

Anyways. I've spent the last couple days assembling the new machine, and updating it, and tweaking windows 10 to not suck, and getting everything set up just the way I like it. Drivers, software, blah blah blah. It's such a good feeling. :)

My friend gave me a very high end (for it's day) video card that he isn't using any more. You'd spend $350+ on an equivalent card to match the performance so I'm happy to have it. It'll let me get back to PC gaming which I haven't done in too damn long. All I want to do is play Team Fortress again. :)

Here's the other parts I used for anyone nerdy enough to care. Not the worlds most high end machine but what a step up. I feel the power!



New computers are the best.

Nice looking build. I have the R9 290 myself and honestly I've yet to find a game it couldn't run if I compromised on some of the higher end effects.

My only complaint is that is that it's the noisiest component in the build, and one fan has a slight rattle. Beggers can't be choosers though. Free is free. :)

Hmm, you went with an AMD processor. Bold choice there.
