    when I was 4 years old. When I turned 6, I started using the internet. I grew up with computers and video games. As time passed, I learnt quite a few things that children, the same age as me, usually don't. I started web-designing/graphic designing at the age of around 10. In...

    Upgraded to Windows 10!

    Was not the smoothest upgrade. Black screened on me after first install. Think Nvidia drivers were screwy. But after taking out my 970 GTX, then reinstalling Win10, and putting card back in, everything seems to be working. Liking it so far!
