    Try disconnecting the monitor from power for a minute to reset it.

    Eric The Tech Guru got a reaction from CPotter in tickets   
    Tickets aren't finalized yet, even prices and ticket tiers haven't been worked out between LMG and Dreamhack. It probably won't be until February for ticket prices to be announced, keep tuning into WAN show for news and watch the LTX blog on the LTX website.

    My take:
    I think Tesla as a company will be fine and Elon will get some well needed rest from the crazy stuff he's been doing. He'll still have SpaceX and Boring Company so he won't get bored but I'm glad the SEC is taking steps to ensure the second largest car manufacturer in the US is under stable guidance and isn't crossing legal boundaries for memes...
    I'm getting ready to buy some TSLA when it is on sale on Monday, but that's just me...

    Because people are confused:
    Elon remains CEO of Tesla, but is losing his title of Chairman
     
    The Chairman of the Board of a company makes decisions regarding the direction the company is headed.
    They "steer the ship" so to speak.

    The CEO executes plans and handles operation of a company.
    The CEO's job is to be guided by the board and execute their will in practical terms in the company.
     
    Elon loses his big picture direction and decision making unilateral power, but he can still give feedback and persuade the board to do things he believes in.
    He also still handles operations of the company and many administrative tasks for Tesla.

    I think they've already stated that petabyte project is literally just because they're out of archive storage for the channels, don't think they would lie about that.

    10 keyless, just the right size for me.
    I've also got a WASD Code with MX Cherry Clears, a Logitech G910 Orion Spark with Roamer G's, and a Corsair K65 old school with MX Cherry Reds, but it's in UK layout and I like US/ISO layout.

    Alright, guys. I just spent 3 hours taking apart my entire battlestation and putting it back together with some serious cable management. Lots of routing, over 50 zip ties used here. Mounted my Router and Switch to the underside of the desk with some painting-hanging grade adhesive stuff. The Modem is on the floor next to one of the power strips because of the location of the line drop, can't move that. All the cables are routed with either zip ties or sticky cable loops and then zip ties. The only visible cables are running into the outlet.

    AFTER:




     
    Let me know what you guys think!
