The hw I am waiting for is a… pendrive! Turns out somehow all I had evaporated and yesterday when I looked it seemed to me that docker only runs on Ubuntu. But I think that a more correct statement would be that the enterprise version is only supported on Ubuntu but this can be installed also on other distros, or at least on Debian. If I find some time today I might start giving docker a go
I really would love to bundle up all my dev env, by that I mean vimrc, tmux and tmuxinator configs, etc. I do not know yet what to do about github and bitbucket keys - guessing I might be able to point them to be copied over from host or something like that?
I got mine 1080ti from here (I think they would ship within EU no problem). It was maybe 80 euro cheaper then anywhere else and also they had it available in reasonable time which was a big issue when I was getting it.
Having said that, the GPU is the most unimpressive piece of hw I got! It’s nice in a sense that at least by going for it I don’t have to think about it and it just works, but if I were doing it all over again from start I might have opted for something smaller / maybe even getting a laptop instead. I have not found yet a problem that cannot be made interesting by making it smaller, and besides CIFAR10 is such a wonderful playground I have not explored in the least just yet. And the issues around connectivity (ISP issues, upload speeds, outages) and all the minor details of keeping that box have taken quite a bit of my time (good learning experience though) but probably there would be immense value in having greater availability and ease of use of something I could keep it close to me (the box sits in my parents closet )
BTW the best bang for the buck, without a doubt, by a very long distance, has been the nvme drive. OMG this is a life changer. It’s like the first time you discover you can jump to tags in your editor Maybe even better.
Man I can’t write short posts - sorry about this
