My consciousness has arrived at a point where the worldlines of my corporeal presence and that of a Radeon 6600XT exist in close proximity.

Relative to my 6yo RX480 card, yes.  A 4090 it is not, but then again it didn’t cost $1600 either, or require that I purchase a new power supply for the system.  :D

I haven’t had a chance to install it or run benchmarks but it should be about twice as fast as my 480.  My old card benches at about a 3Dmark score of 8800.  This one should do maybe 17000 while only requiring about 30 watts more power.  Same amount of RAM (8G) as the old card.  It also includes hardware support for various video codecs that have been changed or added in the last half decade.

Went a bit crazy at the company store today.  Honestly I just went there to get a new cap to replace my "InSight" cap.  I've had that one since EDL (landing day) and it has served me well for the last few covid years but it is looking a bit shabby and worn these days.  However, when I got there I found out they'd just got a bunch of new stock in.  Stuff tends to go quick and sometimes items don't come back so I took advantage of the opportunity.

Final damage: 4 new T-shirts, 3 pins, a sticker, and 2 caps.  :D

(And yes that's a Kerbal coffee mug behind the Europa Clipper cap.  Mug sold separately.)

That's an impressive haul of loot. 🙂

Went and got a jacket from the store at work.  (After a few windy, rainy days of sub 40-degree weather I figured I needed something besides my tattered old sweatshirt hoodie.  It's comfy but a sponge in wet weather and doesn't do much against the wind either.)

Also a new hoodie and a couple t-shirts.  They're finally getting Psyche merch in!

I've had that experience. Years ago I bought myself what looked like a nice winter jacket, just the thing I thought for waiting on wet windy railway stations.

How wrong could I be!!  The wind went straight through it, so unfortunately did the rain! 😡

Got an email from the store I buy my pipe tobacco from saying they had Cornell & Diehl's 2023 Small Batch pipe blend, Folklore, in stock. I'm a big fan of C&D's blends, so I thought I'd jump on this before they sold them out. The aroma coming from this tobacco is very pleasant. It has notes of dried dark fruits, black tea, various warm spices and faint woodsy and citrus undertones. Can't wait to fire it up! 🔥 I'm probably going to take a portion of it and put it in an airtight container to let it age for a while, maybe a year or so, and see how it compares to smoking it new.
