I don't often toot but that's because:

a) I've come from bird site which I used as a curated source of journalism & info so I was largely passive; I had nothing to say.

b) I'm essentially introverted & shy; I tend not to say much, especially in crowds.

c) I don't really understand the point of social media; I don't have a sense of self-importance to believe that my opinion is worth expressing publicly.

But I do really like this bne.social instance so I will make an effort to be more engaged.

I'm in BNE but moved back from MEL to live with and look after my elderly parents as I reckon it's better for people to age-in-place.

My main interest in life is (listen, not create) and the genres and types of music I enjoy are very broad and varying. The genre I most appreciate is music.

It's a Dell Inspiron 5000 EVO 13.3" (but I've a 4K external monitor via HDMI and USB keyboard & mouse).
It has an Intel Core i5-11320H CPU, base 3.2GHz, max 4.5GHz, 4 cores, 8GB RAM, 512GB SSD.
And gosh it's faster, more responsive than my old HP, and tiny and shiny.

Huzzah! I now have a new laptop which took most of yesterday to set up.

My previous (bought when unemployed so not very grunty) had a tiny drive and couldn't install my work SW.
I also tried running that lappy with Win11 (MS said "your computer is sad and unsuitable"): it did run but it clagged the machine out.

So being an adult and having a job, I lashed out and bought a new laptop. And, gosh, it's most excellent.
Very chuffed.
