  1. Yeah, I got a Microsoft Sidewinder Mouse (the one with the Weights and changable feet) at their closing sale. It just finally died recently. (Pressing F)
  2. That may be so, but man even Sears and K-Mart were not this bad.
  3. https://www.sciencenews.org/article/chip-carbon-nanotubes-not-silicon-marks-computing-milestone?fbclid=IwAR2SJM7C14nwLKZMmL2L02GRxfhU84jGa-qVsAc0YZHpXmCJTjOk0aOaU4Y
  4. This is the Back Stock Area of the Tempe, AZ Store. This was packed just a couple of years ago.
  5. I have one down the street from me in Tempe, AZ and it and the Phoenix ones are a Joke, same thing with their LA Stores. Nothing official yet but the writing is on the wall. I hope Micro Center Swoops in and buys a few of them.
  6. Nice I've got a pair of Kicker Comp VR 12s that you feel in your chest if I turn them up.
  7. Hey I got a Vewsonic 24" at Goodwill for $8 on one of their sale days. After playing with it I got the refresh overclocked to 82Hz. Not bad if I do say so myself.
  8. Nice to see someone else rocking some serious Subs.
  9. I have used Torguard for years. Started off with their Proxy Service with a sale they were running for $2.98 a month. I had problems with the Proxy so they upgraded me to VPN at the same price so I have had their VPN Service for $2.98 a month for years now.
  10. Depending on what model you have you might want to look into a Nako Intercooler
  11. This was a Birthday in July Present from a Friend (My Birthday is Christmas Day) and not a Purchase but still awesome. (Stole Pic from and Ebay Listing as I didn't take a pic before I opened them but loose pic is mine))
  12. I'm too lazy to dig it out of the bin (using a pic from a search) but I found one of these in Storage not that long ago.
  13. Back in the day I actually used to buy custom ones for my cases. They were "Kleer-Dome" badges. Now I pretty much don't use them. I have one of the tiny Intel Badges on my case that came with my Processor and that's it.
