Weekly Wins 11-13-2020

Ok folks, it’s Friday the 13th in 2020.

Let’s celebrate some good things that happened this week. Big or small.

My win is that I’ve been enjoying playing with the parts of rust I’m playing with to deal with simulations. One of my long time goals has been to get better about building explorable explanations for concepts. The part I struggle with right now is finding an appropriate level of abstraction. Because I do not want to accurately simulate disease progression just to talk about healthcare costs dangit!

Yup.

I did quite well on a pair of tests. I tried ranch on pizza and it was actually good, further solidifying my excellent homemade pizza game. And I got some parts ready for #TeamThrifty - hopefully those come back ok and you guys love them. I’m not putting spoilers here though.

I got my desktop back up and running once my new CPU cooler came in. Glad to have it again after it was down for almost a month!

Finished a rough draft for my web design project. I put 8-12 hours into it, and likely can submit the draft as my final version due to that.
Found a new place on campus where my friends and I can play D&D, meaning we don’t have to drive super far to find a play room.

Cashed in my credit card rewards, which paid for my new Ryzen 5 5600x and NR200P case. Feels good to upgrade a 6 year old machine. Now if I could just get a 3070…

I made homemade pizza for the first time! Not as hard as I imagined it would be, and came out pretty good (especially considering I don’t have a proper pizza pan):
