    Going to help a friend build a PC. He's been saving for quite some time now so I'm excited to help him build it.

      What's in the build? Did my first one last year and it was a lot of fun building it with a friend.

        He went with a mid range PC, i7 9700k, 16gb Vengence Pro 3200k ram, 2070 Super, and 1 TB storage. I talked him down from getting a 1500Watt PSU. He didn't need all that power! Saved him a couple...

        I talked him down from getting a 1500Watt PSU. He didn't need all that power! Saved him a couple bucks here and there. Over all he spent I believe $1600 for the build. Bought stuff on cyber Monday. Not a bad price for what he got.

    I meant to drop by the office of the local health services, to get a new GP - my usual doctor is ~1Mm away - but it doesn't look like they will be open on Saturday. As such, I'm probably just going to sleep in, do some cleaning, and then lounge around - I'm pretty wiped right now, both physically and because of the sleep debt I accumulated during the week.

    I'll also have to do some shopping, and I'm probably going to revise a bit more on Sunday, but beyond that I have no idea.

    I have three finals on Monday and one on Tuesday, so I am studying. I'm amazed at how relaxed and calm I feel!

    The CAD design looks good enough and I have most of the supplies, so I'm starting on building the next version of my accordion synth.

    Throwing a holiday party at my place. Anyone have good punch ideas? I made the Original Chatham Artillery Punch (https://cooking.nytimes.com/recipes/1013708-original-chatham-artillery-punch) before and, DAMN, it hits hard, but it's so good. Thinking I just may swing for the fences with it again, though it doesn't feel very holiday season to me, ya know?

    I have spent most of this weekend studying for finals. I did have dinner and play card games with the family Friday night though. My cousin also stayed over Saturday night and we watched horror movies and played Outlast.

    The only other thing I did this weekend was work on a custom layout for the handwired keyboard I want to build. I have been using Keyboard Layout Editor, mostly trying to find a nice combination of the ortholinear compactness of my current Planck, the split layouts of the Atreus and Ergodox, but with a design that is a little more robust.

    I would like to keep the total number of keys below eighty and stay as close as possible to the dimensions of the XD75, but we'll just have to wait and see how that works out.

    I have a work holiday party to attend. I've only been with the company for 3 weeks, so hopefully it goes well. There will be liquor and booze abound though. That should help me a lot.
