Good bye to an old friend

    A close friend of mine had mentioned to me how he started trying to game on his Macbook (lol), but was met with a lot of problems (intel integrated graphics).

    I felt bad, but also happy that he was at least trying. So, I decided to "lend" him my old PC that I was previously using as a table. I figured it was literally going to waste being a table when it's a fully functional and fairly modern system. So I cleaned it up, freshly installed Windows, and let him use/have it.

    He seems really happy. His favorite game right now is Elder Scrolls Online, though he's also getting into DOTA (lol @Void).

    So one less thing on my floor and now I sent my dear friend on a dangerous path of known as PC gaming. I have a feeling he's going to really go over the top within the year and turn it into a hobby.

    Final pics of the system before it left:

    hehe .... sounds like a plan!

    I'm little loaded doing OSCP at the moment. Let me find my feet ..... and i'll break away from dota for a while.

    Learning curve at work has been so steep, i've been drowning a bit ... it's had a serious impact on my gaming and other activities ... lol.
