Go for it, everyone. The sight of actual vaccines fills me with relief. Actually makes me optimistic for next year, even though there's a fair chance it might be another half year or year before it's my turn. There's light at the end of this tunnel, jfc.

My new PC build is almost complete. I'm now transfering all of my files from slowpoke ancient HDD to a blazingly fast M.2 NVMe SSD. Just mounted the GPU in this teeny tiny NZXT H1 case, now I need to figure out how to have it use my 1060 instead of the internal GPU. Probably a bios or driver thing.

This has been the most challenging PC build I've done, which is the equivalent of saying it's the most challenging IKEA furniture I've built. A bit of a puzzle to squeeze it all in there, but this 7x7" case really does fit everything I had in my ol' bigass case plus more, somehow. All the wiring goes out to the bottom, which is wonderful too.

Best of all: if I didn't fuck anything royally up, I can finally start my Christmas holiday this weekend with Cyberpunk 2077 after being hyped for almost 8 years. Feels like I've been waiting forever, not just for my Christmas holiday to finally arrive, but also for that game, so it seems fitting.

Can't wait for the vaccine, myself. Apparently it is a two-stage vaccine... one shot today, continue as if you never got the shot, then a second shot a month later. A week (or two?) after that, and you are vaccinated against COVID.

I see a lot of issues with people adhering to that process, and am filled with trepidation about what will happen when COVID mutates for a whole population of half-vaccinated people...
