It has been a while since I last posted on this blog; and the more this goes on, the more I feel that the post to break this prolonged absence must be “special”, and hence, harder for me to write. I’ve decided to break the cycle by writing a post that is special in the sense that it deviates from my usual habit of offering my thoughts on various developments in the Bitcoin world (which, incidentally, has celebrated its 6th birthday this week), and instead share my experiences from an important life event. Don’t worry, the word “Bitcoin” will still be mentioned several times.
I am talking, of course, about the new computer I have purchased. I’ll give you a moment to mock how uneventful my life must be if the purchase of a new computer is important, and move on to describe some of my design considerations.
