    Well, you know how it is. Money won't buy you happiness.
    But they can buy you other people's misery, and that's an okay start. ;)

    A flux capacitor, so you can go forward to 2021, and skip the holidays completely because, I really have to be honest here:

    The last I want to do is eat turkey.

    Sure, just not during corona times ^.^

    Amazon link pls :rolleyes:

    I might have a "shopping addiction" but that doesn't mean I'm throwing money away...

    Anwyay...
    I just bought another heavily discounted 14 TB HDD, but that's not extinguishing the desire much... 3 days left to B.F.

    Well, at least it was a funny suggestion. How would I know that one is stashing the whole interwebz in one's NAS :rolleyes:

    This is a slightly older version of it, I have now HDDs all the way to the top, no more slots left whatsoever.

    It's more of a media-server than a NAS, but it can be considered a NAS as well since the main purpose of this computer is to be storage that I can use over the network.
    It does other stuff though, for example serving media streams via PLEX.

    Get a Valve Index. Playing games while standing is great for your back / health.

    If you do boxing sessions you can burn additional calories!

    peripherials.

    I don't need any but still managed to buy myself a set of those fancy hyperx pudding keycaps at half price.Perfect moment to buy the stuff you'd like at prices you'd be willing to pay.

    I may finally be able to get a controller too.
