Shiny new computer ;)

I’ve finally managed to upgrade my work computer (this one I’m typing on right now) after little secondhand upgrades over the last few years with a brand new one!

It is a Ryzen 5 2600 (I know not a brand spanking new 3000 cpu) 6core 12 thread chip, with an Asus Prime B450M-A motherboard, 16 gig of 2400 ram and a shiny Corsair Force MP510 nvme drive. After a few difficulties getting it up and running mainly related to my backup of my old system it’s running fine and super fast now!

I’m really pleased with the performance, my old 6c12t Xeon X5670 scored around 1400 points in cinebench 20 and this new system is around 2950 ish which is a nice healthy around twice as fast and the crystal disk mark is a mahoosive improvement over the old system

So this is a great addition to my systems at home – next the “old” system is going across into my music pc which will also be a huge boost!

RIAT 2019 @ RAF Fairford

We attended RIAT yesterday and to be honest it was a really good day out. Disabled access was good and we hired a scooty for Sian to make it easier. She only ran me over 4 or 5 times lol. The disabled area was almost smakc bang in the middle of the display line and we enjoyed both th static and flying displays.

Today I’m spending a few hours sorting through the 1067 pics I took. I’ve got some crackers and will leave you quickly with this one I took

New works system coming…

It’s been a long time, but I have a new works pc system coming over the next 3 or so weeks. Ever since wife no.1 sold all my equipment 7 years ago I’ve slowly been getting stuff back how I like it, and now I finally have a chance to build a new system. Currently looking at a Ryzen 5 3600 with 16 gigs ram (will get more later) with a 1tb nvme ssd boot drive. The other bits will be re-purposed from current works system and that is going to be my new and improved music pc!!!!! I had to sort out my little NAS box last month and now that is finally sorted (copying 4 TB of data takes a while…) this month is new build time.

So I will soon be able to complete a few more of my projects ๐Ÿ˜‰

Onwards and upwards


PS Ex-wife is due a date in court for a small claims to recover a small part of what she sold… eventually it catches up with everyone!

Happy Birthday Sian!

Happy Birthday to my wife Sian. The best thing to ever happen to me, the women I wanted to marry rather than the narcissistย  I felt forced into marrying.

My only regret is I never met you earlier.

Love You! x x x

Freedar 1.3

If you have a mobile phone of decent spec and what to track military planes I can thoroughly recommend Freedar – which as the name kinda gives away is totally free! Great app and we use it to see what’s about when we visit places ๐Ÿ˜‰

Second wife deserves breakfast in bed…

After my disastrous first marriage I didn’t think I’d get a second chance, and to be fair marriage number 2 blows the first one out of the water completely…
Nicer, better looking and much better morals and complete trust – something I never had first time around

Enjoy your breakfast in bed ๐Ÿ˜‰
