The Mumbo Jumbo Discord server got nuked today - an admin account got token snatched by a very well-crafted scam. Earlier after the event it seemed possible that past messages could be restored, but it's not seeming likely now.
This hurts a lot. It was the first Discord server I ever joined, and the reason I created my account, and that has let to much more great things in my life.
And now it's probably gone.
So about that MacBook...
Apparently it goes for $400 on eBay so I'm selling it and getting an MBP 2012. A lot more useful since it has FireWire, TB2, an optical drive, MagSafe, replaceable storage, replaceable RAM, etc.
I've officially finished Pokemon X and Y. I've beaten both games at least twice, I've watched all three Pokemon seasons (17, 18, and 19) set in the Kalos region, I've done everything I can. And it feels wrong.
If only because I know that the Kalos region could have done so much more. https://www.smogon.com/articles/pokemon-z
Today I learned that you can run a GTX 690 without a fan as long as you take a generic desk fan (1 foot diameter) and point it at the side of the card. At idle it's at 44/42C, which is better than when I had an 80mm fan double-sided taped in there (45/47C).
Don't worry, my replacement fan is coming soon. Cleared customs at 9 AM today.
I had a random 80mm fan laying around. Cut it out of its casing, double-sided taped it into the cavity where my GTX 690 fan will go, plugged it in. Works fine.
I had to shut down after 5 minutes though because the fan fell out.
I just made $200 in 2 days.
I sold 2 computer parts.
$100 for a Socket 3 AT board with PCI and integrated controllers for everything you'll need on a Socket 3 board.
$100 for a 5v to 3.45v Socket 3 adapter (so the magic smoke doesn't come out).
