@ AshjW Cool!

-------------------------------

Not much for me. Haven´t seen an family yet except my ma and we don´t really give each other anything anymore.

Bought Eastern a "new" car (Mercedes B 200 CDI 4matic from 01/2015). It came only with summer tires so I had to buy winter tires incl. rims (~1000 € (MB: Oh no, you had to buy an 4x4 so you have to buy at least 17" and there a no steal rims which fit.:domo:)) and then it´s first service (~700€! and it was only the small A service) was needed in December for is warranty to stay in effect. So my finances are non existent at the moment.

So no new PC as I had planed for this year. Maybe next year, hell maybe the price for the new threadrippers will go down till then. ( Yes I seriously think about changing from Intel to AMD. That would be my first AMD in my main rig since my Pentium 200Mhz!)

 

So I only got me an Miband 4 and Fraiser DVD Box.

 

So I hope you all had a great XMas and you have my best wishes for next year!

As my employer isn´t really effected > driving to work, driving home, driving to work, driving home.

Also hoping that my PC doesn´t die on me as atm I don´t have the money to buy/build a new one and it is a bad time for a new one with Intel doesn´t getting its shit together and Threadripper so damn expensive.

'Sup nerds it's Christmas and today we got bombed!

 

Shit's wild. We did a skype call just now with my family and got a few things opened up and then have a call with my wife's family a bit later today. So far we got;

  • An Oculus Quest 2 from my brother.
  • A big box of asian foods and candies from my brothers fiancé including a sushi making kit
  • Simon Stålenhag's The Electric State artbook
  • Root the Riverfolk expansion
  • Flying Colors a book about flags from my wife
  • Communist Cats card game
  • A small set of National Park field notes books
  • The Untitled Goose Game soundtrack on vinyl.
  • Some other board game related knick nacks. Dice boxes, chit holders, etc.

I'll see what more I get later if I don't get blown up!

A weighted blanket, skippers, sleep mask, popcorn maker, LED grill stuff, Dune board game, New California Republic flag, and some 40k cause I'm a stone cold badass.

I came here just for this, merry Christmas everyone.

I got... A tie, some cuff links, some cologne.

Two days of complete relaxation trumps any gift, though.

Considering this thread is....17 years old, I'd be really interesting if somebody did compared how gifts changed from year to year for a given person. Or not.

My Haul 2020 was quit short:

  •  A pocket knife and a garlic press from my boss. Both with the company logo.
  • Some sweets and bucks from friends and family

I got myself a new slatted frame for my bed, some network stuff to expand my 10Gbit Fiber LAN at home and I am in the process to buy a Threadripper based PC rig. I am waiting for the CES this month if/when the new ZEN3 based Threadripper will come out. IIRC this will be my first AMD based PC since my 486DX4/100, at least for my main rig.

As most times when you are "grown up" and want nice staff you have to buy them yourself. This "grown up" stuff sucks.:angry:

I got a couple Amazon gift cards because gift-giving isn't really a thing these days.

I do owe opals a drink someday when this vaccine is out there.
