And I am back again.  The weekend before last my long-struggling PC up and died on me.  I have had no end of trouble with the thing, and have replaced it with the old Mac computer that it replaced in early 2015.  I got effectively two and a half years of trouble-full service from the thing.

I went back to PC for cost reasons, a reputation (false it turns out) for being better for games, and the ability to customize...but that was effectively the problem.  Unreliable but cheaper parts that don't always play well together.

So I am going back to Mac for the reliability.  It might cost more but the reduced stress and increased operating life make it the cheaper option for me on a time average.  I have ordered a high-end Mac laptop which will be my main computer for the next decade or so.

In other news I table-flipped at a real estate agent yesterday.  They had left some generic "someone is interested in this suburb, do you want to sell" flyers recently and yesterday I found a specific "some dude wants to buy your house" flyer with a hand written note on it...left at the upstairs door.  This was unacceptable because apart from being IRL spamming, they had to have passed the mailbox, entered a gate, come through the garden, come upstairs (indicating they know upstairs is the main door) and left the note at the doorstep.  So I called and complained and the person on the line seemed cooperative.
