Blue, maybe an AMD Ryzen 5700G will be a good choice for you? The availability should be alright and since it seems you are not interested in mega graphics with RT @4k, this might be what you are looking for. Get a B550 chipset mainboard, the Ryzen 5700G, and you should be good for a while.

So why aren't there more park rangers monitoring those fucking morons?
Money. There aren't a lot of park rangers.

Start putting up CCTV cameras.
Money.

Make people sign an agreement before entering the park that if they fuck around they voluntarily forfeit all their assets and will willingly go to prison for 10 years. That'll weed out the shitheels.
Yeah, like that will happen in any country, let alone the US.

Not even money. Yellowstone is over two million square miles. Ignoring that you'd need hundreds of thousands of cameras, how do you even connect them? POE? Wifi? Just getting the coverage is near impossible, even with Bezos cash. As is monitoring that many.
On metal posts or trees ... all those miles of electric wiring squirrel nibbled ... some nature !
Plus some camera stealing out there.

Sigh, clearly said and instructive, but even so, it won't penetrate. Nothing does.

F***ing love Archer! Rewatching it now to get psyched for season 11. Dreamland is terrible. Probably the worst season. Season 9 was great though. 10 was meh but still nowhere as bad as 8. But I don't like noir detective stories at all so that probably has a lot to do with it. However with the voice actress for Malory deceased I wonder what that means for season 12 or 13.

I think some of my worry comes from when I do take time off, which isn't often, and waste away days at a time, which I do, I feel guilty because the time off of work is so precious. If there were no "deadline" to my free time I probably wouldn't worry so much about wasting it.
Probably the last ten years or so I worked, I used up my vacation time mostly to make work less arduous for me. I used four days for the first two Thu-Fri of the NCAA tournament, so I could watch a full days of basketball with my buddies. The remaining 16 days I used to remove as many Fridays as possible from the end of the work year. With the holidays in Nov. and Dec. this usually meant I did not work a Friday after August, or thereabouts. I started doing staycations a LONG time ago.

In the end, it fit me perfectly. I can spend the entire day watching "all day" coverage of a sporting event like US Open Tennis, or whatever and it is not a problem in any way. Or I can literally spend 16 hours playing a game I just bought, and everything is fine. While I am not a "loner" my need for social interaction is towards the low end of the scale. And even just some small chit-chat with a bartender or wait staff can fill my need for a couple of days. This also makes things easier for me, important since I live alone.

Like I've said before, I think we may be twins who were secretly split up and adopted into different families.

The closer I get to retirement (my plan is in 3 years), the more I wonder what I'm going to do with myself. How's that been for you? Like a lot of people I was laid-off for a while last year, and while I pretty much enjoyed having the time off, in the back of my mind I knew there was a job waiting for me and I was ready to get back to work when the time came. My dream is to be able to work my present job part time - never setting an alarm clock and leaving when I feel like it. It'll probably never happen, but I can dream.
I believe it is normal to be worried about time management in retirement. "What am I going to do with those 40 hours a week I was working?" It all comes down to what you like to do and what kind of person you are. The standard A-type personality is going to have a harder time than others. If you are someone who needs to be doing something, you better have a plan for that. For me personally, as I have said here in the forums repeatedly, I am a lazy bum, a natural couch potato, I have been since I was in my teens. Because of that retirement suits me great. I was never lucky enough to have a job which "I loved doing". My jobs were fine, some of them were actually interesting to me, and I really liked some of the people I worked with, but the only reason I ever showed up was because I needed to get paid to continue living as I did. All that said, even I worried if I might get "bored to death" without having to spend forty hours a week at work.

In the end, it fit me perfectly. I can spend the entire day watching "all day" coverage of a sporting event like US Open Tennis, or whatever and it is not a problem in any way. Or I can literally spend 16 hours playing a game I just bought, and everything is fine. While I am not a "loner" my need for social interaction is towards the low end of the scale. And even just some small chit-chat with a bartender or wait staff can fill my need for a couple of days. This also makes things easier for me, important since I live alone. If you have a partner you definitely should be discussing the situation with them...

P.S. I didn't really mind Waterworld. Not great, but not the train-wreck everyone said it would be. In my opinion, if it was never known how expensive it was to make it would have been just another middle-of-the-road post-apocalyptic film.
