Congratulations, Kari. That is a BIG step. I, too, viewed retirement with mixed feelings and a certain amount of trepidation.

It is a bigger change than one can imagine. I like having the freedom of not having to keep schedules. I do not miss the politics that went with my second job. I miss the camaraderie of the military; but I don't miss the BS. I miss being productive and I miss having a higher income. I have plenty to do, though, and I am certainly not bored. If the economy ever improves, I will go back to work on a part time basis - doing something I love to do.

Congrats Kari

Today my new case arrived :)

All though the 350w PSU it was suppose to come with, wasnt there
Dunno what happened but i guess i read wrong, and i most likely wasnt even gonna use the PSU (it was a cheap one)
Anyway, i'm about to go off to make a "How to install a motherboard in a case" tutorial for here :)

Congrats Keri. I was in that position some 5 years ago. I was under the impression that I would have loads of time to spare, a real luxury. I'm still looking for that spare time, indeed I think I have less "free" time now than I did when I ran my own business. Or perhaps hen you turn three score years and ten that time does, in fact, go faster!

Due to lack of interest, stress and need to do something else plus need to have more quality time with my wife.

I'm quite healthy, 51 years old, worked 35 years continuously without a day of unemployment. I've just had enough, decided to start the process when eating Christmas dinner. First step was to cut down work related travelling and weekly hours to under 50, but it was clear from the beginning that it was not enough.

@Sergio, when can we see pics of the rig?

I am convinced it does indeed go faster.
