For this month’s off-topic post I thought I’d give an update on my PC project and a review of my new graphics card – the Asus GeForce Dual GTX 1060 O6G – which I’ve now been using for about a month after splashing out last payday to complete my build… for now.
A few weeks on from building my first PC from scratch, I thought I’d offer some thoughts and tips to help other first-time system builders go from big ideas to the big switch-on.
It may have taken me eight years to watch The Social Network, but at least I’d heard of it before that. I’m amazed that I only heard about the side-by-side Brooklands Museum and Mercedes-Benz World when I was Googling around for things to do a couple of months ago!
When it first came out eight years ago, I assumed The Social Network would be a fairly dull retelling of the origin story of what was then everyone’s favourite social network. I finally caught it the other day, and it turns out I’d been missing out on a great movie.
I have a confession to make: I’ve never liked the way the Apple Watch looks. I’ve owned a range of Apple products over the last decade and I’ve always thought they were beautiful and well-polished, but wearing a big silver box on my wrist has never appealed to me.
