What are you doing RIGHT NOW?

I've been updating passwords for all my furry accounts for the new year. You never realise quite how many accounts you accumulate. Given some sites have issues and things... it took me around 1,5 hours. But I've got new, better passwords, closed some accounts and added two-factor-authentication for a couple more.

Yeah. I started using bitwarden recently, and also updated a lot of passwords.
Haven't had any furry sites where I could add 2FA though

Yeah, it's more services that are using it than the furry-specific sites. Although FIMFiction (which is a My Little Pony story site) does allow 2FA.

One of our clients did a "fuck you" move that really backfired on them badly.

They ordered boards that they'd ordinarily manufacture with us from Taiwan and then sent them to us to have them tested.

To give you context, when we made them, there was a yield of about id say 20-50 failures in a batch of 1000 before I repaired them.
the Taiwan batch is currently at around 44% failures, mostly due to shoddy conformal coating job.

I'm pissed at myself for almost falling for a fake ad and associated scam. I realised before any money changed hands but I'd sent some personal information.

Well my happy thoughts were dashed with a cold dose of reality. Got my new RAM to upgrade my laptop. After a harrowing experience opening up the laptop with a fair bit of superficial damage, I put the RAM in and.... black screen. Luckily I didn't break the laptop but it seems like the RAM is either defective or incompatible. But it's the right format, speed and everything as the previous RAM so I'm hoping I didn't mess up

Insomnia, not had a moment's sleep.
Being a depro bear, thinking too much crying more than I should. Thinking about Ivic I lived with him for 3 years he meant the world and more to me.
RIP Ivic my friend, my "little brother".

Pleasantly surprised the forums still exists.

Even though I do prefer telegram chatting since it's MUCH faster and more user friendly than forums, I have to say there is something about the forums that Telegram just can't match.

And what am I doing rn?

Yesterday I set up the long-term support kernel as an alternative boot option for my laptop. It doesn't automatically show up though, I think I need to select it in the BIOS. It's mostly there as a backup anyway.

This monday hit different. Found out I'm going to start taking a managerial role at audits, basically running an entire audit. Bit daunting but I've been so ready for this.

Also was a bit of a foggy brain monday, I usually wake up around 3am to study but decided this morning I'm sleeping in. Probably fuzzy because of the drinking at yesterday's meetup for Ivic's memorial.

I also can't stop looking at cars... So over driving my GF's i10, I'm used to an actual car not this clown car xD
