Well, I figured I'd do a quick update seeing as it has been over a month. I'm still alive, although the summer is kicking my ass, and right now I might be suffering from a slight self-induced fever. I am quitting my current job to become a junior developer on another project, that is much better coordinated. Moreover, the company I'll start at is much smaller and more controllable, which shows in much better coordination and more successes. This also means I'll have to work much harder than I am doing now, and I'm wondering if I still can do it. I've grown a bit numb in terms of being result-driven... Still! If there's a company that could do it, it's a company where the boss has an open-door policy for all its employees... So here's hopin'! : )

My relationship is blooming very well. We're toying with the idea of moving in together. The big problem is that we're both in a stressful situation right now and it wouldn't do our relationship any good if we would do this right now. Luckily the girlfriend realizes this and managed to talk this into my head. For the time being, we'll just stick to the weekendly visits, which seem to be further and further apart, even though she's staying longer and longer and it's still every weekend. I wouldn't be able to have a weekend apart right now, I think.

The cats are doing well. They're really adjusting to the apartment life and seem to be much less bothered by the heat. Moos needs a shot, and I have yet to plan a visit to the vet. Max has been coughing up some epic hairballs recently, but I guess that's normal, seeing as he's shedding quite a lot of fur. Probably a summer thing. He really detests the hairbrush, unlike Moos, who really sees the advantages, I think. Wisdom comes with age, no? XD

My computer's dying quick, and recently I've begun to plan out a new one. It will be a reasonably modern rig with a slightly outdated videocard, mostly because of price issues and the fact that I'm still very impressed by the running stats of the GTX 660Ti chipset. I need to decide on whether I go with the ASUS motherboard or the Gigabyte one. They both have their upsides and downsides, but they both have what I'm looking for and I think they can stand up to the job. When this is all done and I'll have my new rig next week (I'm ordering it either tomorrow or saturday), I'll need to figure out what to do with my current one. It's essentially a nice piece of machinery still. I think it just needs some maintenance or a reinstall - however, to limit the damage should I break it and since I need more power from my machine in the first place, I'm waiting with the experimentation until I get the new one. Not sure what I'll use for primary disk, either. both an SSD and an HDD have their merits, but I think overly stressing my SSD with an operating system will be significantly shortening its life span.

That's it for now. See you in a month, I suppose? XP

I should really check the state my LJ is in, too.
