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

My favorite Sushi bar is closing it's doors for good.

The owner is old now, he's like almost 90, has been a Sushi Chef since the 60's both in Japan and here in America. He has to retire but none of his children want to take up the Sushi Trade. Succulent Tuna, Salmon, traditional Japanese street food, Green Tea made from leaves and not that store bought powder or honey in a jar, things that you just don't get from treadmill sushi places or even those expensive five star dining places. . . . Gone forever. To be replaced by some hipsters Ramen Bar that wont be able to be one tenth as nostalgic or shape as many lives as this Sushi Bar did.

The Deli I could accept. But my Sushi bar too? The world around me is changing and I don't like it. I love my Sushi Bar and I wanted it to be around for years to come. But it's going away.

I got to eat there one last time at least. The chef made me a very nice Sea Bass dish with rock salt. He made the octopus taste better than it ever had before. The waitress I'm friends with and I talked. We exchanged contacts, so that's something I guess.

It's bittersweet to say the least. The end of an era man, the end of an era.

Oh gosh, I know exactly how that feels.

A small vegetables/bread store around the corner of my house is closing down after more than three decades; the nicest old man used to run it with his kind wife but she recently got sick, and it seems like they're heading back to their village; it managed to stand tall despite all the chain food stores emerging close to my place the last years, since the neighborhood always supported it.

I'm gonna miss those little mundane exchanges I had with them; it has been one of the many "constants" of my childhood (I used to frequent it a lot more) and seeing it empty right now...well, like it was stated above "the end of an era." Quite the melancholy around, realizing how many places/people will only be a part of your memory as time passes by.

My PC is on life support due to it frequently shutting down and restarting. Since it is a model with 5 to 6 years of usage then i should start looking for a new one.

First make sure the fan and heat-sink are dust-free. Overheating can do that.

That's the age of my "buy new kit before Windows 8" machines, and half the age of the laptop I'm using right now.

Try using this handy tool to monitor the temperatures of the CPU and disks. It will almost always be the former hitting a cut-out temperature like 90C (against a more supportable 50C for normal operation)

Thanks for the advice!

Turns out using the vacuum cleaner to eliminate all the dust that had accumulated on the outside seems to have stopped the problem in it's tracks. And believe me, it was a LOT of dust. Need to pick up the habit of cleaning it more frequently.

You could also put dust filters inside the case these blow the dust out of the case and stop it being sucked in.

All this raw and torn skin on my hips and thighs better heal up quick, or I'm going to be old-man toddling for the rest of the month.

FML = Fuck My Life.

In other words, post here what your current frustration, angst, grumpy bear whatever is.

I don't mean to be nitpicky but a small issue here like my recent posts not being replied at for days gets to me.

I wanted to reply to a post you made in the "What Anime are you watching" thread, but I haven't found time to write the post yet, as it's gonna be a longer one, I think.
