Working on Getting a New Gaming Laptop... My 3 year old Acer Predator's case finally breached and is on its death bed... it wont be long before it shorts out due to being exposed to the elements...

I found a good prospect here though, https://www.newegg.com/black-xotic-pc-g ... 000C-01SB1

Is that just the case that's knackered or is the battery swelling? If it's the latter, get it to somewhere safe quickly. If it is swollen, it's in danger of exploding or catching fire.

Reminds me of my old MSI laptop. Same black with red accent casing. The plastic around the hinges died, too.

Now making animation mostly takes a week to finish. TBH it seems like a long, long time. Like a month.

What do you think? Am i the only one who thinks working on something feels like a timewarp?

Was backing out of the garage and had to turn a bit because the garage door would’ve hit the right mirror. Did it too early and collided.

Fortunately, it was possible to partially piece the damaged parts together, and the car’s now at a workshop.

Well! that was an easy fix. It's surprising that the car's looking fine despite the crash. :D

With any luck the main bumper/fender cover will not be damaged (it looks OK from the pics). Those things can be surprisingly expensive given that they are so commonly damaged (deliberate policy by the manufacturers to artificially price them high?).

Maybe all it will need is a replacement for whatever went in the square hole and a bit of paint on the scuffed arch. Maybe a replacement clip or something too.

It was just a minor collision, and the car’s not fixed just yet. We’ll see how long the workshop takes to get around to it.

Yeah. We did get to borrow a car from the workshop “for free”—I put that in quotation marks because the sum, instead of going into the car we’re borrowing, will surely go into the final bill instead. At least I’ll have some way of getting my new job.

So PS5 design has been revealed and it reminded me of this:

Urban Brawl had some subway ad like this just for jokes and i guess we expected no more of PS generations in the future.

But boy time sure flies.

At least we still don't have Xbox9000.

EDIT: So today Imgur just gave me some unpleasant messages after uploading my images like "Failed to Create Post" and "Something went wrong with CREATE_ALBUM_FAIL. Please try later".

And i actually tried to log in to Firefox but it said: "Imgur is temporarily over capacity. Please try again later.".

Absolutely majestic.

EDIT2: Aaaaand just recently made this animation


EDIT3: Don't mind if i do...
