I remember when an aunt met with me and I advised her to get a PC for her son.

he is just 7 years but he always wants to visit me everyday just to use my PC. even when I started using linux he still managed to find his way around. really smart for someone who didn't have a PC. I even found some Google search history of him Google weird instructions and errors and whatnot. since I wouldn't always be around since i was always travelling.

I put the PC together with the huge budget she gave me. it was waaaaay better than mine with all that rgb shit. I loaded it up with all that programming, softwares, ebooks and videos and games I could find. few weeks later he stopped calling me(usually he'd call me to know if I was at home), i felt lonely for a while before i moved out and i felt like i did the right thing. I felt like jesus, lol

at least if I dont get to become a pro at coding I know I did everything and helped him start early

    Dude you're a cool fucking cousin man, that kid is lucky to have you in his family. Great job! You should check in on him once in a while just to see what he's up to, maybe even give him a few tips.

    Also, let's see if he'll join us here on DevRant in a few years (assuming this place is not dead), hopefully he'll make a rant on this story and how you were a huge influence for him.

    Rgb made it better than yours? You could ask after some time how's he doing.
