Ha Ha that would be funny to see how many I reported got banned  :rofl:

Still seeing how some of the streamers who use Macros etc are not banned, I don't suspect alot will be banned if I was to report them.

I start my new working life as an independent, self-employed, software developer & consultant tomorrow.

I've got more work than I can shake a stick at, enough to keep me going until Christmas, with loads more lined up and on the way after that.

I can pick & choose my hours (within reason) and I won't be constantly pestered by morons all day. All I need to do is give realistic delivery dates, and then acheive them. No interference from idiots.

I now have an office space setup at home, and will mostly be working at home, with a day or two a week "on site".

I hope it goes as well as I think it will....

Thanks Klins. Balancing demands and managing expectations is going to be the trickiest part.

I can tolerate working with them (not for too long), it's when I'm not allowed to criticise them for fear of upsetting them, I get frustrated. If someone is being a twat, I like to tell them so - it's frowned upon in the modern workplace though, sometimes I miss the "factory floor" culture I cut my teeth on when I first started with summer jobs when I was a teenager.
It seems subtle sarcasm just doesn't cut it, or more often, goes straight over their heads, unless it's some weird meme sent by an instant messaging app :D

Almost finished with the messing around got a few more things to do, but this is how my setup now looks.



So here is everything in it  :rofl:

1: The part on the left that is sticking just in to the picture is my 55" 4K HDR Panasonic TV, that I used as my main monitor for my pc but changed it due to input latency etc.

2: Just on the left of the desk is my PS4

3: Main PC monitor is a Asus PB287Q 4K monitor

4: Keyboard is a Coolermaster cannot remember the model but it's a Mechanical keyboard with brown switches (very clicky)

5: Corsair M65 Pro Mouse

6: Corsair XL Mouse Pad

7: In between the Monitor and the Tivo box is a HDMI Splitter

8: Tivo V6 box

9: IIyama 24" 2nd monitor for the main machine for Discord etc

10: My gaming machine behind the 2nd monitor, spec's if you want are a 7700K, 32Gb Corsair 2400Mhz, MSI GTX1080Ti, 500Gb Samsung NVME SSD

11: 2nd IIyama 24" monitor which is used for the 2nd machine

12: Generic Microsoft keyboard and mouse for the 2nd machine

13: Behringer X1204USB mixer for the sound from my main machine to the 2nd machine which does all the video recording, and allows just a single mic and headphones to be used for both machines

14: 2nd Machine under the desk is the recording/rendering machine and when I start streaming again that will handle it, spec's are Ryzen 7 1700x, Noctua NH-D15 cooler, Gigabyte GTX1060 3Gb, WD Blue 500Gb SSD, 4TB Seagate HDD, 2x 6TB Seagate HDD's in Raid 0

15: Oculus Rift not currently setup need to sort out where I can put the sensors

16: Logitech webcam

17: Rat's nest of wires which will be sorted eventually.

Trust me if you are going to do a new build, I would wait till at least March next year.

Reason being is that AMD are supposed to be releasing Zen 2 early next year, and there new lineup of graphics cards and that is 100% going to shake up the market if the information that I have heard is correct.

Say what you want about AMD but the Zen architecture is stupidly good for most things, although it does fall behind Intel in games but only by around 10-20% dependant on the game and what resolution you are playing at.

My next upgrades when I can afford them will be a Threadripper CPU for my 2nd machine, since you can get a 12 core 24 thread cpu for around £300, and then for my main machine if Zen 2 is as good as it's sounding then it will be a Zen 2 cpu and an AMD GPU since apparently the new architecture for there GPU's is performing much better than expected.

It's not the RX590 or the other unconfirmed one that was leaked recently but it's the Navi architecture that is supposed to be being used in the next Xbox and the Playstation 5.


Trust me though if you want to do a new build within the next couple of months expect to be paying £3k - £4k if you want top end.

Luckily, with current games, I have no need for a new PC  :)
