It’s been a weird week so far.

There’s a project I’ve been working on that’s taking a lot of time and I’m already dealing with some sleep issues that were either caused by Daylight Savings Time or the insanely large amount of Skittles I’ve eaten in the past few days.  Then on Monday, I get an email from EVGA saying that I’m eligible to buy a 3080… from a waiting list that I joined like, some long long time ago.

Anyway I figured I’d jump at the opportunity, it arrived Wednesday, and I was like ok here’s the deal:

It’s currently still Wednesday as I type this, here’s been my day so far:

  • 3:00 am – wake up to pee cause I’m an old old man
  • 3:05 am – 5:00 am – try to fall back asleep
  • 5:01 am – give up on sleeping and start work
  • 11:00 am – take a forty minute nap cause I feel like garbage
  • 11:40 am – see that the 3080 got delivered and then pick it up from the front desk
  • 11:45 am – 1:00pm – finish the shot I was working on
  • 1:00 pm – 2:45pm – swap the 3080 in to my computer… this took so long because:
    • I needed to run an extra power cable since this card has 3 8 pin connectors
    • Couldn’t fit the card in because a cable cover piece of the case was juuuuuussst blocking it from fitting
    • Needed to remove the cable cover piece, which then necessitated:
      • running cables back through the hole on the cover and
      • rewiring a handful of lines
    • Then put the card in
    • Then realized I was using the wrong screws in a few places when I was hastily putting things back together, so those had to be swapped after much confusion

From this point on, I did get everything done that I needed to do today, but I am so sleepy and running on fumes.

In other news, we watched Turning Red and it was absolutely awesome.
