DragonCon, that is held in Atlanta, Ga. each year on Labor Day weekend, is a con I have been attending on and off for the past 20 years or so: https://www.dragoncon.org/ Unfortunately, thanks to real world concerns (mostly monetary), I just haven't been able to attend for the past 5 years. As that curious bitch Fate would have it, this year I actually have the money to go (and even afford a premium room, for once). So OF COURSE the Global Viral Apocalypse hits, closing down everything :angered: To be serious, though: First, I don't want to belittle the serious nature of the current Epidemic we are going through. Too many people have lost their lives to it, and far too many people have gotten ill because of it (I have two members of my extended family who caught it, but they are both young and recovered without many health problems, and even got a test myself a month or so ago to make sure [came out negative :) ] ). The people who run DragonCon did the right thing; holding a
Update (6/30/20): Well, almost there :) I tried to follow a YouTube tutorial to put my new system together myself, but after only a few connections, realized there was no way I was going to do this, so I took it to a local computer repair shop, and they did it for me. However, I now realize I can't install Windows on it, since it doesn't have a internal CD drive, and the new (semi-cheap) monitor I bought only has a VGA input, so in order to use my new video card I have to buy a HDMI to VGA adapter, so both are now on their way to me (by end of the week, if lucky). Hopefully by this time next week I'll have it up and running, and doing my first render to test how good it is (frankly, because I have had such crappy computers for all my life, I don't really have/play any high-end games that need a top end graphics card, but its good to know that I can now run pretty much any game I want to, without having to worry about CPU/Graphics requirements :) )
Final Update (6-17-20): I went to the cardiologist again, to do a tredmill 'stress test' (they wanted to do a full test [whatever that consists of], but my crappy insurance wouldn't pay for it :angered:)
Like the previous test, nothing was found, except that I have 'per-hypertension' due to blood pressure.
Again, I'm not upset that nothing was found, but I'm still concerned about the source of the initial chest pain.
Remember, my initial visit to the doctor, I got an EKG, TWICE, and they found 'abnormalities' each time, which led to me getting all these follow up tests.
Well, if the pain pops up again (for an extended time anyway, as I h
