Hey there! My name's Jessica, and welcome to my Virtual Mess Lab!
I love to perform/read teardowns, and taught myself my own approach to fixing devices. I would love to help repair cars, but I don't think my methods are street-legal/safe...Then again, I've seen duct-taped bumpers…
I’m a Windows/Android person through and through, but I also support Mac OS/iOS, since it offers some features the former doesn’t have. For example, pairing USB drives as RAID? Only Macs can pretty much do it, and Windows? Well, that’s out of the question. I would use something other than an iPod for music, but unfortunately Apple seems to have dominated that category well, with reliable devices that can still run despite being at least 14 years old.
My first laptop I ever owned was an Acer Aspire AO722P netbook, running Windows 7 Home Premium. I loved that little thing, even though the CPU was garbage (1.0 on Windows Experience Index, for those who remember that), since it could do things that seemed impossible. It never gave me a BSOD, never froze up or crashed, and ran pretty damn hot. The fan was designed to take in air from underneath the keyboard, which was, of course blocked by the backplate keyboard. And thanks to the laws of thermodynamics, hot air rises, which meant that it was literally cooling itself using hot air. (It used an AMD C-60 with integrated Radeon HD 6290 GPU. The graphics were better than the entire machine itself.)
I’m also developing a little OS using batch scripting on Windows. I know, it’s not really a programming language, but hey, it’s the only one I know personally. When I started learning Arduino, I started forgetting it, and soon I realized I needed to re-memorize it before I forgot what ‘echo’ does.
I currently reside in Arlington, Virgina, a stone’s throw away from our “great” president known as Donald Trump. I don’t get involved that much in politics, but some days I wish I could Thanos-snap him out of existence. (Does that secretly happen in Infinity War/Endgame? I wonder…)
Feel free to ask me anything, although I can’t guarantee it’ll be answered, since I’m still learning myself! But before you ask, try restarting! Seriously, it could potentially solve your problem on your own! I can be contacted through here, or through my email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Don’t you even dare try and spam me. I will block you.
