I swear, there's nothing more excruciating than watching an old person try to use a computer.

Hey, the computer didn't instantly respond when I mis-clicked that button! I know, I'll double click on a bajillion different things on the screen as fast as I can, I bet that'll help the situation. That's weird, why is all this stuff opening up? Where did my email go? No worries, I'll just open my email AGAIN.

Fixed that for you.

When I'm in meetings and have to use the screen, I make sure only the competent are allowed to control it. Nothing is more annoying than a 15 minute meeting lasting 2 hours worth of click there, no not there, above that....no no non o go back, click SUBMIT, its right there, next to save order, no below that...

Moving some air now. Just installed 2, Scythe Ultra Kaze case fans in my computer with a Kaze Q controller in the 3.5 bay. 120x38mm fans at 3000rpm, moving 134cfm of air each at a 46dB level. Awesome! CPU temp dropped from 43C idle to 38C, just with case fans. Of course wide open, my case sounds like it's ready to take off. Can't wait to get my new case with location for 8, 120mm fans...

I am waiting for my last W2 to get here from the job I worked for a week last year. Then everything I get back will be going towards an absurdflow setup I think.

If any of you ignants knew how to calculate your taxes, you claim just enough to get the most money every paycheck and barely get any fed. income back come "tax time". I think I'm getting >$500 back. I'd rather have my money go to my pocket all year rather than get a large chunk back that the government borrowed at 0% interest. This applies to simple filing....

Generally I am pretty close. This past year I worked only 8 months and am no longer claimed as a dependent. So I am getting a good amount back.
