Today I learned about M.2 SSD and NVMe

Some articles about SSD’s:

One thing I learned is that M.2 SSD IS NOT eMMC. I’ve somehow fooled myself into thinking that M.2 SSD is much slower than SATA-3 SSD, when in fact M.2 SSD can be faster than SATA-3 SSD, especially M.2 SSD with NVMe.

Meanwhile eMMC is the stuff you get when you got a soldered-on storage on older NetBooks or ChromeBooks; the ones with non-upgradeable storage. Don’t be fooled though eMMC is in fact faster than traditional metal-platter hard-drives, albeit only slightly. M.2 SSD though, that’s the s#*t right now.

I miss being relaxed.—I miss being able to relax. For the record I feel tremendously guilty…

I miss being relaxed.

I miss being able to relax.

For the record I feel tremendously guilty about missing my promised deadlines.

And also tremendously guilty about not being able to get to the office on time every morning.

Fuck. I get to the office almost at the end of office hours each working day. How fucked up is that.

Fucking fucked up, that’s how fucked up.

I miss being comfortable with being myself.

I miss not feeling guilty.

I miss feeling like I am able to do things to fix my guilt.

—-

I miss feeling independent. Like being able to say fuck it to my job at any time and get another job at will.

I miss feeling competent.

Nevermind mastery.

I’m so fucking cooked I don’t know if I’ve ever felt mastery for anything I do.

I can’t write.

I can’t study.

I can’t draw.

I can’t play music.

I can’t sing.

Hell my philosophy’s a pile of shit. I can’t even fucking think.

Fuck this shit, man.

Fuck this shit.

I probably shouldn’t be publishing this shit.

I like this bluetooth desktop keyboard. Sold in the US only though, and doesn’t ship internationally. Oh well…

And with all the mechanical keyboard fethishism among hardcore geeks nowadays, low-travel scissor-mechanism keyboards are sacrilege nowadays. Nevermind it practically comes from IBM, and that it has a built-in trackpoint.

I like good-quality scissor mechanism keyboards, way better than mushy mass-market mechanical keyboards.

The place to fight it, unsurprisingly, is also in your head.

It’s simple. Not necessarily easy, but definitely simple.

You kinda get a sense of how it feels when an ‘other’ calls one of your own children…

You kinda get a sense of how it feels when an ‘other’ calls one of your own children the best, or better, than another of your children, when someone calls one of your works the best and the others are worse or even ugly or something…

When really if you’re creating for the Public (not just the consumer masses, but the Public) ultimately only 10% of your work is going to be acknowledged as “The Best” while 90% goes obscure. For example do you know how many sculptures & photographs Pablo Picasso made during his lifetime? And yet only a handful of his works are known worldwide, and most of them paintings… The same with Leonardo da Vinci. Of course most of you reading this being either cultured persons or professional fine artists already know this.

Be cruel to your ‘art’ children. Letting go is the only way to get better.

Because really everybody is an artist. But fine artists whose fine art _actually communicate_ with the World, that’s rarer.

Everybody is an artists, but the artist whose art actually impacts the world, their art actually communicates with the world effectively. Or at least the art elicits emotions from  people. or something. yadda yadda
