…no internet connection, plug in ethernet Cable…sigh. This is is a recurring problem with my desktop. It’s not that I don’t maintain it, but it seems as hardware requirements change so do our devices.
Currently I am weighing the thought of doing an upgrade on my desktop PC. It’s an i3 with 12gb ram and several terabytes of storage not to mention liquid cooling…but the network card is not behaving as it should…so replacement of the card is necessary.
I have 2 options that will also add Bluetooth capabilities to my desktop, but here is the conundrum, a 10 year old computer vs fixing a newer laptop, which has mostly only a bad screen ATM. Alternatively I could pursue both options and just take the time and wait until I know if I don’t want to get a brand new laptop.
I had already been thinking about a new one. More portable than the desktop and with all the features new ones are getting. Honestly I just wanted to do some video gaming on my desktop to enjoy a quiet Sunday…and I wanted to do some pew pew and wreck some online bits with online space game stuff. That was not to be today, but I guess that’s ok, it’s still a challenge that will change how I use my PC and how I maintain it. Last 2 upgrades were video card and the PSU.
I know I’m not the only one who has older gear that they use to have fun on, it’s always a race to get gear upgraded. I look forward to it and I guess instead of pewing space pirates I can work on communicating with you and maybe more of my latest book.
