Have been working my way at getting back into regular blogging here at the corner office on my side of the interweb. It’s been a while since my blogging hiatus. So in making myself comfortable again, I played around a bit and updated the theme to a new one I really liked, and move a few pieces of furniture around. I like the look and just more inviting when I sit down and ponder just what to write.
The WordPress Editor
At first, I couldn’t figure out just what the hell the new Block Editor tool was when I started figuring out how to post again. It seemed quite wonky, couldn’t make sense of it since I’ve been used to the old Classic Editor tool for well over a decade-plus now. Being on hiatus a while, I didn’t know WordPress had updated to a new Block Editor with Gutenberg update. I would seem to almost lose my mind every time I tried to make a new blog post and It was using the Block Editor. I just have absolutely no love at all for using the Block Editor for writing new blog posts.
When I updated the new Theme, the Dashboard seemed to have changed a bit in look as well I couldn’t figure out what had happened to the Classic Editor for writing and editing blog posts and pages. I spent the entire Friday evening till well into the morning trying to figure out how to regain use of the Classic Editor function. The Gutenberg Block Editor can go to hell a million times over.
It’s been a long time. A time lost journeying through that pocket in space. Lost adrift in far unknown space. So long-lost adrift he entered in Cryostasis. left journeying adrift among the great vast void of very deep outer space. To most…. seemingly lost forever among the stars.
And so it was, untold time passed lost and seemingly dead.

It’s the last major component in my New PC Build Project. Initially on ordering parts for the PC Build I had originally ordered a Gigabyte Geforce GTX 980Ti Extreme, but decided since my build likely wasn’t going to be finished till early summer I just decided to return the unopened box to Amazon and wait for the new GPU which was right around the corner anyway. So I’ve been patiently waiting for the brand new Pascal generation of Nvidia GPU’s which was unveiled yesterday May 6th 2016.
I’ll likely be putting in my order for a GTX 1080 as soon as when available for around $600. Word is it’s more powerful than the Titan X GPU. I just can’t wait.
I’ve been out of gaming entirely for almost two years! This is my very personal project to build my own Gaming PC Rig and get back into some gaming and other things. I’ve never built a computer before, but I thought it would be a good challenge and fun to do as a project. As well build the computer I want since it will be mostly for gaming overall.
After spending quite a bit of time researching on YouTube (few months) and on different PC forums I think it was time to at least get things started. This build will take some time! So it won’t be fast! Got some parts delivered from Amazon yesterday. Currently have about half the parts, (MSI Motherboard be here next Wednesday) minus all the Radiators and all the Water Cooling Components. Configuring the Water Cooling build will most likely be the most difficult part of the build with components and configuration.
After waiting almost 6 weeks to get the custom case so far I’ve mostly assembled the CaseLabs TH10A (Case Color: GunMetal) case which is HUGE and was a lot of fun to assemble. However In assembling it definitely gave me a huge appreciation of how well crafted in detail and assembled CaseLabs cases really are and can last a lifetime. Today have to head out to Micro Center, a little road trip to pickup the i7 6700K CPU which they have on sale for a good deal for $314 and also pick the EK CPU Water Block.
Hope this turns out to be fun, minus the hole in my pocket for one of my hobby.
It’s hard to be in PC gaming if you don’t have a gaming PC rig. I don’t current own a PC worthy of gaming in 2016. My MacBook Pro is about 8 years old now and though it works fine for just everyday stuff and surfing the internet, it’s not good for gaming in today’s world of gaming. I’ve been out of gaming for all of 2015. Been thinking about getting a new PC for quite a while now, months it seems but just couldn’t decide. Somehow after binge watching a lot of YouTube vids if I remember, I thought it might be a good idea to maybe build my own. But then I didn’t know much about building a PC let alone a gaming rig. I’ve never messed around with attempting to build a PC before either.
Over the course of the last month I’ve watched quite a bit of YouTube getting caught up on just how to go about building a PC and gaming rig watching all kinds of builds from many the YouTube personalities, some quite popular as well. I enjoyed watching a bunch of videos by Carey Holzman who now also does the DIY Garage for NeweggTV and a pleasure to watch build gaming rig and learn from. I’ve learned quite a bit in the process, but I’m still learning. Learning something new is always interesting. But I think I have the confidence that I can build my own and likely learn more in the process as well. If anything it seems like something fun to do being apart of gaming.
So after watching many builds I set aside part picking the parts for my own future gaming rig. I decided I didn’t exactly want a cheap PC. I wanted a good gaming rig that kicks ass, with good quality parts and can play anything on the market smoothly. I wanted a gaming PC where I’m not playing catchup with todays games and something that will last quite a few years without needing to upgrade much. As well something thats easily expandable into the future if I needed to upgrade. At this point I think this project will cost me more than I thought when I started out, but for my hobby I’ll be happy about it if it works out.
After picking out the parts for my Ultimate Gaming Rig on PCPartPicker this is what it looks like so far below on the link. I’m flexible in making changes if possible. Though the core parts I likely want in my build for my gaming be
