I can recommend pea gravel for a permanent location. It is really heavy. I know because I shoveled 13 tons of it. But as a substrate it wicks water ok and is a good root support. It is cheaper than many options, easily obtainable in bulk, and doesn't need replacing.
Although I do love the roomba, I have gone through two roomba. They have not been mistreated. They just stop working for no reason I can determine. If I go through a third I could make a cute little end table. If yours works I am jealous.
I definitely like the idea of introducing natural predators. But I would do it by creating an entry/exit hole. Especially for dragonflies, who require a massive amount of airspace to thrive. They fly about half a mile up and can migrate up to 11,000 miles. Their diet is mostly mosquitos (over 100 per day.) They also use altitude to thermoregulate. A greenhouse would be a very poor fit for a dragonfly. But the concept of introducing predators is great.
The specs you showed are for an integrated graphics card. That means it is physically on the motherboard. So you either have another video card in your system that isn't showing up on those specs or (more likely) you went with the integrated graphics card.
That's not a bad way to go for most purposes. But video processing is a little different. There are two types of processors: CPU and GPU. GPU is graphical processing unit. It is for doing floating point and vector calculations. GPUs are basically your video card. You want a dedicated GPU with its own fans and memory. Like a little computer inside the computer. You can tell if you have one by opening up the side panel with the two thumbscrews, sliding it off, and seeing if you have a card the size of a paperback book with fans on top. If you do have one, make sure that is where your monitor cable is plugged into. (that may be why your system is reporting the integrated card.)
If you don't have one, I recommend you look up your motherboard, find the best compatible video card you can afford, and install it. It's straightforward. You snap the card into place and attach a cable or two.
I don't think you need to worry too much about your CPU. It's rare to max that out (unless Zoom goes rogue.) :) RAM is nice to upgrade because it gives the system more breathing room but isn't the kind of thing that makes your computer get hot and accelerate. Your hard drives seem ok.
I too have gum tissue loss. It is because of bruxism (grinding my teeth at night due to anger/anxiety.) Over decades of this repeated action and jaw stress, like tidal waves in the ocean, my gums have separated in a couple small areas.
It is impossible for gum tissues to regrow. It is impossible because they lack the stem cells necessary to differentiate into gum tissue. You can do whatever you want to gum tissue, it won't regrow. It would be like asking concrete to turn into a concrete tree and grow new concrete.
There is a promising study that uses poly ε-caprolactone nanofibrous membranes to recruit stem cells from nearby areas and funnel them to the site you want to regrow tissue. That came out last year so I'd predict it is 7 years away from practical application.
Stannous fluoride can be used to create a barrier over the exposed, unprotected tooth surface. You can find that in toothpastes like Sensodyne, which I use. It very clearly works. If I stop using it, I get pain and sensitivity in the damaged areas. There is also a noticeable physical difference.
There is a new filling type that adheres to the exposed tooth surface with bonded resin. It is bright white so it will be sort of noticeable but it adheres well enough to prevent most of the stuff you'd be worried about from exposed surface. If I can ever get to the dentist again I'm going to do that.
Sorry you have this. I've had the same dreams and it's a horrible feeling. I suggest you start using Sensodyne right away and look into the bonded resin.
This is just a hot take but what about an earthen floor with rammed earth and linseed oil? I've also heard of paper bag collage finished with oil. If you are skeptical look it up before you discount it.
I use 2.5 gallon galvanized pails. One cherry tomato plant in the bottom, two basil plants up top. Compost rich potting mix and mulch. With such a small volume ive found that two 10-minute drip irritations a day are essential. Also tomatoes fare much better with consistent watering.
If that doesn't work for you, maybe try a long raised container with multiple holes and put a branch or two lengthwise to retain moisture? Just an idea.
Oh if you do drip irrigation, the plant wicks the extra water to one spot on the ground. So under each upside down planter I put a normal container to catch that water.
That looks very similar to my yard. I think it will work well. The only thing I would add is upside down planters. Cherry tomatoes out the bottom of pails and basil/marigolds out the top is by far the most productive aspect of my garden year in year out. It defeats squirrels, slugs, catepillars, fungus, and more. No staking. No training vines. I simply stuff the plant in the bottom, seeds up top, mulch, then set up a timed drip irrigation and eat cherry tomatoes for 6-7 months, hassle free.
We grow and dry many herbs for tea and spices. In our little 980sq ft home....I've got a room, it's a small room. Haha. Too small about 10x8
Filled with plants that can't overwinter outside in the southern appalachian mts. AND tea, spices and we drying rack. Ginger and assorted friends. :)
