9th gen. Twentytwenty

And still no contact. But this whole climatechangethingammajib seems to get going. Just about time. Hopefully. Radio is still rather meh. I hate public electric scooters. People drive them everywhere, way to fast, often drunk and put them down careless wherever they want /rant. Anyway, got a new Job. And more of those moneys. Good, i need to find a way to deal with my pretentious ideas and get a computer i actually like to use...


Pretty much the first Notebook i actually bought brand new. And quite beast it is! I was just sick of continually trying (and failing) to find the perfect super cheap used mint up-to-date super schnäppchen. Thus i scribbled down a List of what i really, really wanted, took all the money i could spare and looked what i could find for that money which would tick the most boxes. It was this one. And boy it is quite Awesome!

This is my Pet Notebook. I wanted to build one from the day i heard about the Nitrocaster Mod. I bought the mod in 2019, maybe 2018. In november of 2020 i bought a broken, dirty X230 from ebay. And in december 2020 i was mostly done and had it in a working state.

As much as i like my Pet x230 Chimæra, i also wanted something modern. Slick and flat and with a fully featured USB type C port. When i herad about these things, their low price and goot Linux compatibility i was sold. They are great for what they are: cheap, light, slim and sloooow. Can do FHD Youtube Playback, though.

This should have been my new gaming rig. It ended up being my last Lenovo, probably ever. See the blog post linked below for more. Anyway, except the broken battery firmware this thing is quite good.

I had unexpected good results with the Coda Spirit, so i decided to get a cheap mini-barebone with a similar Chip. Its even slower, but still can play Video. N0ice. Quiet, cheap, small.
