It's "s/he/it" both for what s/he/it is and to describe the noise s/he/it produces.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.

I am thinking of having the following system built in the cheapest case I can find. I will then transfer the 3 HDs and DVD R/W out of my old system to complete the build. Are there any changes you would make?
Intel Core i7-6700 Skylake 3.40 GHz Quad Core Socket 1151 Processor
8GB x 2 HyperX Black Fury DDR4 2133MHz Memory Module
Asus Z170M-Plus, Intel Z170A, DDR4, 4 X Slots, Max Memory Support 3466 MHz, 2 x USB 3.0, 2 x USB 2.0 VGA | HDMI | DVI Motherboard
High Quality Standard Cooler
MSI R7 240 AMD 2 GB Radeon Graphics Card
500W - Cooler Master B500 Power Supply
Dump one of the HDD's and replace it with an SSD.
The difference to load times - both OS and app - is so great it changed the way I work, because I can load apps fast enough to not leave them running "in case I need them again" - which frees up RAM and makes everything else work faster.
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...
Good point! An SSD enhances the experience extremely, even if its just an 128gb SSD that contains the OS and "heavy" apps like Visual Studio and Office.
My current Disk setup (which is currently changing) is 1 128GB SSD for OS and productive Apps, 2x WD 10k rpm disks with 300GB to provide a faster access on programs that don't fit the SSD (one is going to be replaced though by a 2TB DataStore), 1x 600GB standard HDD and 1x 1Tb DataStorage.
The small HDD's are going to be replaced by bigger ones that have standard specs cause the SSD basically fills up everything that needs fast reading. Maybe a Hybrid would also be good for huge dataloads
