What was your win this week?

Hey y'all 👋

Hope you all have wonderful weekends!

Looking back on this past week, what was something you were proud of accomplishing?

All wins count — big or small 🎉

Examples of 'wins' include:

  • Starting a new project
  • Fixing a tricky bug
  • Shopping for new clothes 👗

A clip from Avatar: The Last Airbender... Sokka, Toph, Katara, and Aang are all standing in an open doorway dressed in Fire Nation clothes. Sokka is looking very excited, smiling and clapping, the word "Shopping!" is above his head. The rest of the crew are looking mildly excited.

Your cpu cooler's heat sink may not be doing your gpu's cpu cooling any favors lol

Well, they are close together, but there is space between them. This is downside of a MicroATX board.

The CPU heat sink does not touch the backplate from the GPU. While the backplate can act as a heat dissipator, it is not something which affects the CPU cooling.

The GPU fans push the hot air out on the side of the GPU, they are not pushing it up directly to the CPU.

I think you are talking about the CPU cooler, the power supply is not visible in the photo. But yeah, you need a huge cooler for the current gen CPUs, because they are running hot.

Yeah, the motherboard is a tiny one, it is a Gigabyte B650M Gaming X AX in a MicroATX format.

Here we can see the full build. The case is an old NZXT.

Full case

Also, this pic was taken before routing a secondary cable from the PSU to the GPU.

Went back to college after 25 years away! Have one class to finish in my minor and then my original degree is done. And I've decided to start another degree immediately thereafter -- getting a Bachelor's of Applied Science in Software Application Development with a minor in Philosophy.

Oh wow, that's seriously awesome Dan! So cool that you're headed back to finish off that previous degree, but also gonna add another under your belt. The combo you're gonna have sounds like a strong one.

I really wish I had taken some Philosophy courses... but hey, it's never too late to go back.

Have an accessibility presentation.

I got stuck in traffic and lost so I was 15 minutes late.

My presentation broke so I had to improvise and just do a live audit and explain things instead.

And I still got great feedback and loads of people came up to thank me after so…I consider that a win! 💗

Significantly improved our website - Not really developer related though, since most improvements were marketing related - But still a win ^_^

Ohh yeah, and then I converted 19,500 lines of VB.NET code with option strict off for .Net Framework 4.72 to C# 😎

Resulting in a binary compatible, in place replacement of the original project 😂

Haha, shameless plugs are def encouraged here. 🔌

Same goes for shameless pugs!

A pug looking snug on the couch. The pug looks back wide-eyed at the person filming it. Who knows what's going on in that pugs mind, but it's probably shameless.
