  1. The SSD is a godsend. I feel my PC is snappy again. I'm copying all my old stuff and oh boy does it take its time. I already knew this but the contrast right in front of me magnifies this tenfold.

I also bought a Samsung EVO 970 m.2 SSD because my HDD SUUUUCKS. I can wait up to 15 minutes until Fusion 360 is fully operational upon opening.

                              • @thismightbeauser But, the Carnegie and Rockefeller and all those families, they used to do public works and stuff. They may have been hoarding the wealth, but not damn *all* of it. Their flash contest was at least servicing the greater good as a side effect of the ostentation. This new crop seems more about raw, bigly yuge numbers, and hoarding, like a dragon (or a priapism). But, again, this is all coming around to perception. . . .

                              • @thismightbeauser @scribus That is indeed the case, a lot of rich people have middle class cars and discrete houses and do their best to keep people from knowing how rich they are, due to the general sentiment of "wealth equals evil"
                                You can't blame them really, if the mob will hate you just for managing to make good decisions and earning your family big money. I'd probably do the same if I couldn't simply relocate to a fortified compound with a minefield around it. It makes no sense to feel empathy for a group that has none for you, for whom you'll always be the bad guy regardless of what you do or don't do, that openly talks about how good it'd be if you died.

                                The ones that show off are the sociopaths, politicians and entertainment industry guys, who by default are crooks as that whole industry is built on crime and debauchery.

My company puts additionally from its funds and pays the rest such that each employee receives 95% of their wage for 2 months, then 90% the next 2 and then 85% the next.
