What are you doing RIGHT NOW?

I see the eclipse shadow is about half way now over usa. Hopefully one day I would be able to experience a full eclipse, being super interested in astronomy, it is on my bucket list.

I replaced my CPU's thermal paste because it is about five or six years old and runs so hot. When I opened everything up, I realised the CPU cooler was probably never properly attached (my fault). So... I think it spent a couple years with inadequate cooling. On the plus side, the average running temperature on standard chat/Youtube performance is now 20-25 degrees cooler on average. And it runs more quietly.

If you win a few more times, it might cover the cost of the tickets. :p

I put my paste on neatly!

Now I'm wondering how anyone else would check their temperatures if not in a nice graph? I suppose you could just use summary statistics. And maybe a statistical test to see if the temperatures before and after come from different distributions...

I just usually run hardware info in the background and see what max temps I get after x amount of time, and then again after making the cooling changes. Very statistical I know :P

Maximum temperatures are important but might not be representative. Better to use like an upper quartile or something rather than basing everything on a maximum.

I FINALLY got a VPN to work on my Mikrotik router!
It only took a few years

Every one I tried just ended up not working the way it was supposed to.
And some items only work when you do them through the command line for some reason

But hey! It works now!

Busy,busy,busy fox.No rest for the wicked. Preparing students for cultural festival,setting up reports,changing my exercise schedule (want to start jogging again),planning lessons for private students and students who go to the school I teach at.

Towards end of June I'll make time to read more and to just relax.And I should probably drink less coffee too.

Coffee isn't really good for you... Just less bad than other bad habits.

I just got an SMS from SARS. and I have no idea what it's about.
"Dear Taxpayer, please make use of the following OTP for SARS eFiling: xxxxxxxxxx"
It's definitely the real SARS, because I saved this number after I registered. What does this mean, and why are they sending me an OTP for no reason?
