I used to work on Saturdays. What do you do at work and what's your occupation?

No special things related to thanksgiving here as it is not celebrated in my country.
So work and maybe some debugging on dosbox.

Okay, here's my plan.

Friday: going to see Hamlet with Benedict Cumberbatch — there's a thing here in Moscow where you can see recordings of British theatre plays in cinemas;
Saturday: close my credit card, replace the couch in my living room, then go on a date, preferably to a bar of some sort;
Sunday: chill, mess around with my latest Slot 1/Voodoo 2 SLI build. The case it came with turned out to be a pain in the ass, so I might rebuild it from scratch. Also, ordered the SLI cable from eBay, because for the life of me I could not build one. Broke five floppy cables trying and finally gave up. There, I've said it :lol:

Another weekend:

Friday: swimming lessons-ish and planning on testing the firmware BIOS I made for my CR-563-B to see if it indeed works
Saturday: working on my car (exhaust needs to be patched, the clamp for the coolant hose needs to be replaced, and the fuel filter needs to be changed), and possibly going to a computer store to purchase an NVMe 500GB SSD, the PCIe to NVMe M.2/M.2 SSD card, and a heatsink.
Sunday: laundry day
Monday (Christmas Eve): spending time with the family
Tuesday (Christmas Day): spending time with the family and opening presents

I was going to apply Kapton tape to the outer fog lamp lenses of my friend's RX300, and replace the bulbs (he'd insisted on trying the Hella XY bulbs instead of just treating the lamp itself to make it yellow) with quality HB4 bulbs, but it's raining cats and dogs and may do so the rest of the weekend.

I might also try to go antiquing or something, too.

On a computer-related note, might play Ark: Survival Evolved. Been a while since I've played.

Tomorrow I'm getting some tyres fitted on my car. Cheapest price is booking through a generic website which gives me a morning or afternoon slot only. I get the confirmation email... 8.30am :(

No other plans really. Try and sort out my latest PC.
