I built a behemoth!

So I recently decided I need a new computer, and chose to build it myself despite knowing next to nothing about hardware components, and what’s good. I found help from YouTube, Reddit and friends. I originally had little idea what I wanted, but after searching I settled on a 1440p monitor. And then 2 1080p monitors. Then on 2 1080ps, one at 60hz and the other 144hz… This went on for a long time until I settled on a 1440p 144hz – which never arrived, so I opted for an ultrawide 1440p.

A revamped website and new blog!

I recently decided I wanted a blog integrating into my website, and I was long overdue a web host switch. I was originally with Hostinger and had multiple problems with the FTP not connecting, and multiple times when I signed in to the cPanel, I actually found myself logged into other peoples’ websites… That was the final straw and I opted to move to a GitHub website – I had to relinquish capability of my contact form as there wasn’t PHP support. Fast forward x amount of months to today where I’ve just registered an account with TsoHost. Quick, cheap,…
