Thanks Soulless and the rest of RHR for the belated birthday gift (GTX 1070), now to figure out where the hell it's going to go.

Offer accepted on a house, now the fun begins, finalize up the mortgage, home inspection, letter of insurability and more!

@arinoth that's awesome news congrats

On my own rave

new Ac and furnace in the house no longer poor white trash and just white trash now 😛

Wow. Enjoy the 1070! I guess I am well overdue in saying happy birthday.

Good luck with everything! Hopefully it all goes smooth.

I won an 8086k!!! My biggest win ever. I put a lot of thought into it, and although I really want to keep the CPU, I don't even max out my current one and would need to invest in a new MOB/ram (is ram ever going to go back down in price). I am going to put it up for sale and use the money for a GPU upgrade. Hopefully I will find a good deal on a used 1070/1080 (used prices on them seem to be finally dropping).

That was the contest. I did look into the AMD upgrade, but as you said it was USA only. They have already done the max amount they would do as well.

Aren't you a lucky ducky? I thought that give away was long done but guess not. You just got notified?

Was notified in July at some point. Just received it a few days ago. I think it said deliveries could be as late as end Oct.

Still pretty sweet, even if you just sell it

Talked to my folks about the house stuff, they want to come out and help us moved but most likely going to have them come out after we do that. The funny part was talking to my mother, when she and my father were out when we put an offer on this same house he had pointed something out (I don't know what) and said "That would look good in Arinoth's and Arinoth's partner's house." The other funny thing I found out is he has run out of home improvement projects at their home and has been slowly starting to drive my mother crazy, and is looking forward to helping us do whatever we need to this new house of ours. Free labour and expertise for the win?

Win win. Nothing better.

It's the best way to learn!

Sewer Lateral was done yesterday, the piping looked great, one small section that is older then the rest but still looks in great condition. If anyone wants to see the video of my sewer line you're welcome to!

Oh and the sold sign is going on the house at the least this morning. Now to wait for our closing/move in date of the 26th of October. Who wants to come and help me move?!

Great to hear, On the help side I believe some famous person said it best with "Do it your Goddamn self!!" not sure what one but pretty sure it was said before 😛

Those people probably didn't have any friends to trick convince to help with promise of beer and pizza.
