Ugh, one of my USB3 ports on my XPS 15 (L502x) fell into the case. Upon further inspection, it looks like it actually pulled off the circuit board. (I was hoping it was just a USB port on a cable that had fallen in.)

Ordered a replacement board, luckily it wasn't on the motherboard, but I"m really wondering how much longer I'm going to continue repairing this machine before I replace it. It'll be five years old in May, and laptops have come a long way since then.

I've now used two mechanical keyboards, the G710 and the G710+. While I miss the clickiness of the 710 and its Cherry MX Blue switches, the benefit of being able to type at my computer at night without waking up the Kat is well worth the loss. (Although, the spacebar seems to be extremely loud on the 710+. Probably just how I type on it; I mash on it with my index finger instead of my thumb.)

So, I keep the 710+ and Kat gets to squee at the clicky sounds her new keyboard makes. Either one is worlds better than any previous, mushy keyboard I've ever used. I wish I could take one to work with me.

So, I now own a 24" 1440p monitor. I'm.. not entirely sure why. One thing I can say is that, wow, I can fit a lot of things on my screen now. But, I'm thinking that I'd rather have an ultrawide.

I think, if anything, we've all learned a valuable lesson today on the presentation and tidiness of DIY electronics projects.

I'm staring at the documentation for PerMa and my head's spinning. SkyRe was so much easier to deal with.

Do not pass GO. Do not collect $200. Do not click on any Steam URLs or visit the Steam store. Any pages you visit will get cached and it looks like a backend issue is letting other people accidentally access other user's account information this way.

Also, pray for the Valve sysadmins. Or, for those of us not religious, consider sending over booze.

Every time I listen to When It Falls (the RWBY Volume 3 opening), the song grows on me a bit more.

Yeah, CNN, because there's no way that your headline could possibly be misconstrued and incite panic. That is absolutely disgraceful.

For the record, the DPRK is blasting propaganda messages using loudspeakers across the DMZ into South Korea. Not, as the headline may imply, any real military response.

A USB-C port on EACH SIDE of the laptop, allowing chargers to be plugged in on whichever side is convenient, plus 2 USB3 ports. That's ingenious.

A single shared data and charging port? One? How could you not fit two on the stupid thing? And an $80 dongle to be able to plug in a flash drive while charging my laptop? That's a travesty.

Any other company tried this, they'd be publicly crucified. Instead, the #Macbook is another #Apple innovation. Absolutely unbelievable.

For $1399, get a Dell XPS 13 with a higher-res screen, better performance, and actual ports. Or, y'know, get the $999 XPS 13 and buy a Pebble Time Steel. Or get a Macbook Air.
