  1. Me when I haven't saved the Excel file in the last 12 seconds:

      Until I got my workstation, that was me every time I hit "Refresh" on my pivot tables.

      @Tristerin lmao tru, even with just a thousand or so numbers my mid-2012 MBP took a sec to refresh when I was messing around with pivots last night. 

      For this it's more I compulsively save the workbook every 5 seconds or so, I have it mapped to a press of my middle mouse button and I tend to spam that. I feel sorry for anyone else with their dropbox notifications on though, since it notifies everyone else with access to these files any time I save 😂

      lolol I do the opposite, not save enough, get crash, rage like demon fire, rinse repeat

  2. Two dankass packages arrive today. 2 brand new MacBook Airs for work, though I won't be able to get my hands on them till Monday, seeing as they get here this afternoon and I'm already busy. Then a Rebel T2i for myself, so I can dip my toesies in big boy photography 😄. Hopefully get better shots of my hardware than a phone can do 🤔

      @dizmo noice! What gen is it? This is a 5.5 Enhanced (supposed to have the best DAC), it was cheaper since it's all scratched up, but I actually like how worn iPods look. My other one is a silver 80GB 6th gen in similar condition that I got off craigslist a couple years ago. They're damn good music players still, so long as you own a decent amount of music. Highly recommend running Rockbox as well, it's much better and more configurable than the original firmware. 

    3. dizmo

      dizmo

      It's a gen 5...not sure if it's an Enhanced or not, it's ancient 😛

      Mine's surprisingly mint, it lived it's entire life in a silicone case.

       

      Yeah! I loved the UI, still isn't really beaten to this day. Which is sad, since it should be a really simple thing to replicate.

       

      The only reason I keep mine is it has my music from when I was a youngin' and my friends often ask for copies. Though I do have it backed up on an external too 🤷‍♂️ I have a HiBy R3 now though, and it's DAC is killer, and it has a really nice equalizer program. I'm probably going to sell it though, and pick up the R3 Pro.

      Man I have at least 10 of these things in a box.  I actually installed my blu ray ODD the other day (to burn a music CD for an old dude who didnt want USB lol) and kept it in my machine cause Im lazy but its so odd needing an ODD these days lol

    3. Zando Bob

      Zando Bob

      @Tristerin true lol, they're mostly a specific enthusiast thing now. I have two on the way (that ASUS one and a Lite-ion) because I wanna use them to rip CDs for my iPod. Seems to be the easiest way to get FLACs for the albums I like, and I wanna see if I can hear the difference. That and I need to fill the 5.25" bays on my 750D somehow 🤔. May also be handy if I decide to yoink Cowboy Bebop to digital, I have that on discs as well. 

    4. Tristerin

      Tristerin

      Yup!  I actually don't mind the ODD in place, since I put it there.  Its filling a blank bezel slot that provided minuscule airflow in reality.  To fill the other two spaces I use a Enermax 5.25 dual bay converter to hold 4 SSD if needed (but I use it for the intake fan for more air at the top front of the case :)

      Eh it just looks like an iPod, they've looked like this for as long as they've existed:

      maxresdefault-5.thumb.jpg.9a7c262c5786e02551e7b0ebece5856f.jpg

      Rounded body, scrolley wheeley thingie, rectangle screen with similar-ish proportions. 

      This specific one is used and pretty scratched up:

      IMG_1240.thumb.jpg.36acf3fd222a2cc7b07fb50de8608e04.jpg

      But IMO it still looks quite nice, I don't mind scratches on most devices (so long as it's not on the screen). In fact sometimes I like them more than if they were a sterile, shiny thing.

      If you have the paid version, running TimeSpy Extreme could change that up. Has a much more intensive CPU test, would be interesting to see if the 3700X pulls ahead there.

      I got a Vega 64 for 200€ couple of weeks ago, so to me the price seems steep...

    2. Zando Bob

      Zando Bob

      @Tan3l6 It's a Nitro+ LE, that's why. The Nitro+ is pretty much the best card you can get for a Vega 56 or 64, the Nitro+ Limited Edition is even more overkill, but so rare that they barely even exist. Thus why it's worth the cost and the risk lol, if it is the real deal, then that's actually a low price for a card of this rarity. 

  10. ?

      @Pascal... I do usually get iPPC ones (basically Chromax with a higher rpm ceiling), but I already have some redux fans, one of which I'll be using for exhaust. Along with the carbon CableMod cables I'm using + the black/silver of the EVGA board, GPU, and Cooler, it should look really nice in the white case ?

      Plus these are half the price of the bigboyes, and I did just buy 5 of those (NF-A14 iPPC 3000 PWMs) for another rig ?

    This and two EVGA PowerLinks are on the way, finna swap the 780s from my X79 rig into my X58 rig and get that up and running (will need to track down the perfect SLI bridge and a custom cable kit as well though). Then the 1660 Ti from my other X99 rig will go in the X79 boi, and I'll be hopefully yeeting the core of that X99 system to a friend who needs a mobo.

  15. @TVwazhere any thoughts on the Fractal Design Define XL R2 vs the Corsair 750D Airflow Edition? Looking for a case that'll work with XL-ATX but is below $200 ?

    Since if I step above $200 I might as well get one that supports HPTX, but then that'll go to the SR-2, and I'm back at square one with no case for my XL-ATX board.

      Pretty sure this: "One of the last great great full towers Corsair made IMO" coming from the LTT Case Daddy is justification enough for a near-impulse buy?

  18. Me: thinks about getting a new mouse since my one is being fucky rn, looks at MX Masters on Office Depot's site
    Amazon:

    To be fair I might have looked at them on Amazon but that was like a week ago ?

      DrMacintosh

      $120 for a mouse ? 

    2. Zando Bob

      Zando Bob

      @DrMacintosh That's some combo with a wrist rest or something, the mouse itself is $99. Same price as the MX Master 2S and MX Master were. 

  19. Oh Mr. Case Daddy, might I ask for your opinion on this case: https://www.rosewill.com/product/prism-s-white-steel-plastic-tempered-glass-atx-mid-tower-gaming-computer-case/? Friend wants to get it, to me it looks like airflow will be a solid meh, maybe worse than my Evolv ATX? Especially with air cooling and not rads. ?

      The O11, or the O11D? There's a big difference between the two! ?

    3. Zando Bob

      Zando Bob

      @TVwazhere He said O11 and it's a similar look to this case (taller, rads go in bottom or top), I'll see if he's looked at the O11D, they're much cheaper. 

    4. TVwazhere

      TVwazhere

      Even the O11D XL, which is larger, would still be I think half that price.

       

      The O11 is expensive because it's mostly aluminium construction. And it wasnt a mass production case. At this point there's no reason not to recommend the D (heh) or, rather, theres no reason to get any other case other than the Lancool II (the upcoming mesh version) and maybe the 315 (also upcoming)

      I don't have much to go on, but it looks possible that you submitted on your phone, and lost connection part way through submitting (it looks like a mobile data IP). Your phone connected to your wifi a bit later, and at that point it retried the submission. The forum retries once on failure, but I think this was actually caused by Safari retrying later once you got a connection and opened the page (which would have been displaying a "failed to connect" error) again.
