...Well, I bought a new SSD.

Not RGB but I was not about to pass up a 1TB SSD for $95.

It'll be here next week.

There sure are quite a few Spots! This would be great for the Stupid References thread! :yorp

Also, it's nice to see that Tom Hall is still designing games. :) Wonder what ideas he'll have for those kind of games.
