I AM SPENT
I am a broken human being. Last issue ruined me. Seriously—I’m writing this three days after deadline, while trying to nurse a horrific headache, and sipping on a cup of freshly brewed AeroPress-powered coffee. It was a tough one, that’s for sure.
Yet, after spending most of last week fighting that awesome rig, getting it ready in time for the final shoot, and practically hating it by the end, I’ve had nothing but thoughts about how to make it better over the past weekend. Whether it’s slight adjustments to tubing runs, or adding another reservoir in the rear to allow for easier loop filling, my brain’s practically on fire with ideas and tweaks about how to make it one of the cleanest-looking ITX builds out there (despite t the fact I’ve not even looked at it since F Friday).
In a w way, that’s the scariest part of our pa passion, I guess. No matter what level leve your builds are at, or how much you’ve you spent on them, it’s never enough. There’s always something else you can buy, some other way you can g get more performance out of your syst system, or another tweak that will tidy i it just a bit to make it look a little sma smarter. From build to desktop, hardwar hardware to software, there’s always somethin something to do. That’s what makes PC building such an expensive hobby.
That said, judging from all my other hobbies and interests, that seems to be a theme. Hmm, maybe it’s just me…. Time for another coffee, I think.
