Yeah. You read right. This is for everything that doesn't have anything to do with Eva.

About 2 months ago my hernia (which I've had for many years) suddenly became painful for some reason (Maybe because it had become too large over the years).

I finally found a "fix" for the old 30" Apple Cinema display that I acquired a couple of years ago. Most of the time, it flickers or just simply turns off. However, taping a small piece of kitchen foil over the touch-sensitive on/off button cures this. So now I am using a 2560x1600 display :D

I also had to put my old display card back in my new machine, because the on-board video, while actually more capable, cannot output this resolution on a plug that I can use with the display (even with a converter).
Not throwing things out is good...

The usage which will most benefit from this is my audio editing; but it's a pretty impressive thing to have on my desk anyway.

I saw the obvious advantage of a larger resolution -- it makes workflow a little more easier; in your case, able to glance at multiple tracks. I appreciate working now at 1440p so as to have an ease working in Creation Kit (a modding program for Skyrim).

Okay, ran into a now-rare Logitech G15 keyboard circa 2008 for cheap -- about $6 -- and it's the Japanese version along with its original box and disc. So what if it had rubber domes and not Cherry MX? The nifty LCD display. And no strange stuff on the keys.

My streaming server can now stream live TV and radio (I have 145 channels on Freeview here) to any computer in the house, and to mobile devices when out. It has four tuners, so several shows at once is allowed. This is off air, not Internet.

I have just started recording to disk my video of an opera performance I put on in 1989.

My first wife and I started an opera group (and my present wife, as one of her pupils, took part). The first few performances I recorded audio only. Then for a couple more I put up a static video camera, and for the last I manned it to zoom and pan. Then we split up.

The recording can be played on any video, but none other than the original could ever play the audio channels properly. However, my wife kept that, and later when I asked to borrow it only a few years later, it was broken and disposed of. Then three years ago I found on ebay a working example of the exact same original video deck - and it plays the tapes perfectly! But it's taken me until today to get working a means of recording the output in my computer.

It's now going through Rossini's An Italian Girl in Algiers. Also to come: Mozart's Don Giovanni (when I've fixed the broken tape) and Die Zauberflöte.

It's been a couple of days, and ya'll heard about me complaining about my ruck. I might as well brag, then, about the shiny new jewelry I got:

I'm thinking maybe I'm not so bad at this soldiering thing, after all.
