    what game do you like da best?

    Ah I dunno...to this day in my opinion as a can't be beat game is Burnout Paradise...now even better that it has now been Remastered back in '18, still one hell of a fun game to play.

    Thigh highs are over-rated...I'd rather look at big spacious SSDs...lol

    Picked up a used iPhone 4S 64Gb to use strictly as an iPod for an older home stereo that interfaces with old 30 pin dock connector iDevices but not Lightening ones. Pictured beside my iPhone X. Stark contrast. (EDIT) I should also use my P20 Pro for photos...the photo below is horrid! lol

    Finally upgrading from my iPhone 8 Plus to a X...I know...just an X...but Bell is offering them up at $0...so why not?
  7. It's not a sleeper...just a bone stock HP Pavilion 8550C Celeron 500, 256Mb SDRAM, PCI GeForce 6200 256Mb card, WIn98SE for my retro PC game collection as it'll run anything old that Win10 won't run.
  8. My main PC, specs in the profile where they should be. Latest update of Firefox.

    Finally opened them tonight...yeah 2 months later lol man these things sound great, tons of ADJUSTABLE bass to add in via the iPhone app. I have to get used to the control buttons on the right ear cup for track up and down and volume but it's nice to have those handy without having to go to the phone. Also the noice cancelling is a nice touch. Somewhat high end headphones for a reasonable price. And yeah I know Sony well, I own a pair of MDR-1R headphones.

    Yep, older Xeons...and in my case...a complete rig ready to go with even older Harpertown LGA 771 Xeons. Right now running XP Mode under 7 Pro on it and honestly the speed of real cores instead of hyperthreading is making itself known. She's quite quick for being a decade old.

    Thanks for the assist! Yep you can get 8 core 16 thread chips all day but those are rather pricey but for finding a used Dell Precision with dual Xeon 5420s gives me an honest 8 core 8 thread machine that I intend on doing some VMs with also and the fun factor...I had a friend over last night and told him about the dual processor machine, he was actually impressed when I let him use it for a bit. That said I've blown off the pre-installed Win10 and gone to 7 Pro. For what I paid I couldn't build it as cheap as I got it ready to fly. Oh and side benefit, it HAD a Dell branded Win7 Pro DVD in it's optical drive. score for $250 for the machine. And my final thoughts on this machine, why the hell not? Seriously...it's something to simply fool around with. Sure my i7 7700K rig walks all over the dual Xeons...but sometimes ya gotta have something you can just play with.

    Quoting myself, update, didn't get the dual Xeon 5405 rig...nope got a dual Xeon 5420 rig...16Gb DDR2 ECC with a 2TB HD and a Quadro FX 4600...nicely loaded. Why build when it comes ready to go? Runs activated WIn10 Pro as well, lucked out big time. Now to find another 16Gb of DDR2 ECC.
