Sounds about right to me Idonyo.
I'm building a new system, I have almost all the parts I need and I made sure to get a 1TB m.2 SSD because games are increasing in install size dramatically over the last 5 odd years. Even with my current SSD at 500gb, it just isn't enough once I have the software, the large amount of art assets I have on my system (because they are required for my job). Once I have that and 2-3 games installed I'm often sitting at 50gb remaining.

I can't consistently. Occasionally I'll find myself noticing it and able to do it on and off at will. At the moment, I can't find the muscle. Usually, I just don't think of it.
Maybe I just lost the ability at some point.
For me it comes when I do the yawn thing you try to do when your ears pop on an airplane. Works every time.

I was disappointed with season 2, so I'll probably wait for season 3 reviews.
Agreed. I felt S2 squandered so much of the goodwill and the mythos that S1 had built up. S2 appeared to be byzantine for the sake of being byzantine. It did nothing to serve moving the overarching plot forward in a cogent way.

So, the lesson here is... if you buy a watch which costs an entire month's worth of your income, never wear it, keep all the paper work, put it all in a safety deposit box for 35+ years, profit!
Sounds like a solid retirement strategy to me. Problem, financial advisers?

Still debating 3700x vs. i7 9700k. So far my take away is that the Intel build is ~$30
But you're also giving money to Intel, who are a bunch of miserable piles of shit. And your i7 will run roughly 30 degrees hotter than the Ryzen will.

I've done a lot of research - reading reviews and asking around - and I'll be going with the MSI Gaming Edge WiFi. Whilst all the 570 boards are pretty much neck and neck the MSI seems to come up as the winner most often. The Aorus would be my second choice.
I'm going with the 3700X - which, up here, is $105 cheaper than the I7 9700K, which is why I never buy Intel here. The other thing is the Intel I7 draws 95w whereas the 3700X draws 65w. So cheaper to run over its lifetime and better for the environment too.
Edit: The MSI mobo is $199US on US Amazon - but I'm sure we'll see a drop this weekend on stuff for BF/CM.
