Update to the IT upgrades.
Hardware is all assembled, and now includes a MSI RX 6600 8GB MECH gpu. That was the easy part - even the cable management.
This weekend I take the drives out of my existing workstation and wire them into the new workstation. This is the time consuming part. With over 150 apps installed (including two versions of VS Community, Blender, GiMP) and so many customizations.... well, I will come up for air sometime next week.
Oh, and the name of the machine is:
because über silent BeQuiet! cooler, fans, and case; and the 500DX reminds me of a Cylon - with the red chase lights.
Happy Thanksgiving! I am so thankful for KSP and the players who support authors like me.
In the next several days I will begin to do an IT upgrade.
This is made possible because of the generous players who helped out.
I will not be very responsive over the next week to ten days.
The IT upgrade entails a new(er) machine that I am putting together myself. It has been quite a spell since I last was building computers professionally; however I should be fine.
It is the trickle down effect that will consume my time. Am doing a fresh OS install, and that will take time to migrate my development environment to the new machine.
Once that is complete, I will salvage my old ubür space potato (itong sobrang lumang mabagal na patatas / diese übür langsame kartoffel) into being a TrueNAScore server - and since I am new to TrueNAS, this will take time, plus there are tb's of data/backups to migrate.
Finally, there is upgrading the mediaPC - going from spinning disks to a M.2 (they're on sale now - cheap)
Thank you to the supporters who helped bring this to fruition.

under the weather... limited responses/activity for the next 24-48
took a day or two to refine/update my local automation scripts.
These are batch scripts and are quiet long and somewhat complex because of that.
They do things like create the json files that power the pretty little shields (graphics) that automatically update in the readme's (here, GitHub, CurseForge, and SpaceDock).
This also included updating and improving the schema for each addon's local database.
Had to do this because the BobCat series of part addons will have up to three folder levels beneath GameData (e.g. </GameData/BobCat/SovietPack/Mir>)
am also taking a day or so to create and implement (*knocking on wood*) a new way to speed up the creation of each new GitHub repo since I have so many new ones to create.
as always, thank you for your patronage!
no mod left behind
Went on a road trip to retrieve some family heirlooms; was going to be a long trip so powered down my dev machine; and then unplugged it.
came back, CMOS battery kia.... and the machine's BIOS lobotomized itself. *sigh* was a good machine, for a Kell, it survived two-and-a-half years with me, and that is pretty impressive. was a i7-4790 so was already retirement age when I got it.
Replacement, replacement, replacement on it's way. Almost barebones, and to keep things within my budget, another i7-4970; this time from Hewlett-Kermin. When it arrives will pull a six-million kerbucks kermin on it - and transplant the memory, sdd's, hdd, rx550, et al to this new machine. I think I will name it Kermin.
Will be here in about a week, *knocking on wood* that KPS (Kermin Delivery Service) doesn't loose it, or run it over like Odie, or drop kick it like glassware, or use it like a Frisbee like collectable plates....
So far (also *knocking on wood*) no data loss.
such is a kerbal's life eh?
