Nothing pisses me off more then coming in and taking 20 minutes for your computer to boot up and get logged into all my programs.

There have been multiple Windows updates rolling out that have been causing some performance or network issues.

No, and my bay is the hottest bc it gets no air flow in this corner. It would help if the roof fan would work above my bay but it doesn't

Those industrial warehouse fans should work in Royce's case. A fun project I did was take a bunch of cpu and case fans, wire them to a couple of usb adapters then plugged that into a wall powered hub.

Crazy storms rolled though Hudson Valley NY yesterday. I think I know what it feels like to live in the mid west.

1: I hate the post office, had to go to the main office to pick up a package that I could not get redelivered using the online service bc the tracking number and redelivery slip number was invalid
2: I hope this thing works when I get home bc its smaller and feels nicer than the factory key and fob.
