Raccoons are so damn cute with those tiny little hands and their scrappy personalities. This video on reddit is the epitome of raccoon cuteness:

I guess this is proof the internet **really** loves kitties. ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

mastodon.bingo would be a great instance for retired folks ๐Ÿ˜„

Hm today I found that mastodon.lgbt is already registered, but parked. That would be an awesome instance name, I hope whoever registered it puts up an instance!

@ashfurrow ๐Ÿ‘‹ When are we getting verified links in this instance? ๐Ÿ˜

Yes, that's right! TWO Muthafuckin CPUs! Why would I want two?? I paid for one! What is going on?

...

So my suspicion is that Amazon didn't actually have the CPU in stock (the website said they had one), so they had to go and buy it from some OEM supplier and ship that to me instead. And for that I commend them, but now I have no use for this CPU. ๐Ÿ˜‚

First thing: I am sad because I was expecting it to include a fan, which I will now have to purchase as well. But that is not even the most amazing thing, because I then opened the box:

OMG Amazon has either foiled me or made a terrible mistake. So, this is what came into the box for my Core i7-3770 CPU: (BTW I hate Amazon and the only reason I bought from them was because they were the only ones that had this discontinued CPU model and that would deliver it before I moved).

I did things todayโ€“productive things. Things will be better tomorrow.

โ€œWelcome back my friends to the show that never ends. Weโ€™re so glad you could attend! Come inside, come inside.โ€ is stuck in my head for the past ~8h (including the entire remainder of the song)

I didnโ€™t realize how much data I used at home until I cancelled my home internet (since Iโ€™m moving soon). Iโ€™ve already went through 600MB of cellular in just two days. ๐Ÿ˜…

There ya go. ๐Ÿ˜ The shop clerk even gave me a huge discount, which makes things even better.

(This also reminded me that you canโ€™t bargain on amazon. Another benefit of physical stores!) mastodon.technology/media/yxJd

Okay so Iโ€™ve made up my mind. I had forgotten I have a mini-ITX hackintosh back at home in Brazil. It should be enough for me to code for a month. Then Iโ€™m just going to buy a Radeon RX 580 graphics card to play games on it. Itโ€™s a rather good video card for its price, and it will be much cheaper than getting a second-hand MacBook.
