Slavery With Benefits Edition

Top Story

  • I've been working crazy hours lately but it's not without its benefits.  I hadn't even gotten through explaining why I was asking for them to buy me two laptops in the space of a month when my boss approved the request, passed it to accounts, looked up the tech specs and asked if I thought he should get one himself to replace his MacBook.

    And accounts ordered it an hour later.

    It's the Dell Inspiron 16, a pretty solid desktop replacement laptop.  3072x1920 screen - exactly the same as the 16" MacBook Pro, 8-core CPU, 32GB RAM, 1TB SSD, and an RTX 3060.  It matches or beats my desktop system on everything except screen resolution, but I can just plug it into the desktop monitor to fix that.

    I'll probably upgrade it to 64GB of RAM and 2TB of SSD if I'm happy with it, because until I have more free time I don't need a faster CPU or graphics card than that.

Now i have to watch it.

Okay, all is forgiven.  First up is Aki Rose, one of my favourites.  They mention her having to take an extended break for health reasons.  What happened is that she was injured in a car accident and took quite some time and physical therapy to fully recover.  But she did.
