How old is your main daily computer?

1 min read

I got a Surface Pro 3 in February 2015 and today it is still my main personal computer. Thanks to Microsoft Windows 10's commitment and performance improvements I was able to get by until today.

The device IS getting old however. The fan is spinning constantly and the battery life is just enough to shut it down when the power would drop. Surprisingly the 8GB Ram and 256GB SDRAM are still sufficient.

Most of the slow experience I get is regarding CPU.

If I get new hardware it'll probably won't  be a laptop anymore as I only sit at a desk to work on it.

From my side, I'm not bothered by your daily output, on the contrary. It's very interesting to me to be able to follow you through your daily posts. Especially these days with the lack of real social interactions. Perhaps you could set up granular control over your newsletter subscription, like Chris Aldrich does on his https://boffosocko.com/ site?
I do hope you keep posting here since I'm not a Medium subscriber. And by the way, I even got a Coil.com subscription so you get a couple of cents from my visits. Not much and probably not financially needed, but it's more a symbolic token of my appreciation.

Followed the inauguration yesterday. I'm not going to do politics here, but let's say it filled me with joy and warmth in my heart to see people really care for what they stand for and work hard with their entire soul and body to protect democracy and fight the blight on humanity that is fascism.

And now I really hope US politics will return to normally being pretty boring again.

I'm such a sucker for music and song. I got emotional tears in my eyes by Lady Gaga's singing at the - Darn, that freedom pigeon got me too.
