  1. Anything on Grainger is way overpriced to begin with.
  2. Something I ran across from a 25 year Microsoft engineer.... "Fun fact, a wireless mouse’ batteries will last longer when the mouse is used on a light colored surface as opposed to a dark one. That black Slayer mouse pad is eating your batteries"

  4. Looking to purchase a large rectangular mouse pad to cover the front half of my desk. I see them made out of materials such as wool, PU leather, rubber, ect. What material would produce the best mouse action with minimal wear to the mouse? (Logitech G Pro wireless)

    Found this little guy hunkering down this morning on the concrete divider median of a busy four lane highway. At a glance I thought he had already been hit and killed, but saw it move it's head . A quick U turn and picked him up. Amazingly no damage except for abrasions to the mouth and chin, and all the claws of both rear feet ground off to the nub. Very tame/loving and obviously someone's indoor cat. Evidently know as a Snowshoe breed.
  6. That's what i use for one of my bikes that still uses carburetors. It's an older set whereas the newer ones are filled with colored water to satisfy the save the planet activist. Appreciate the suggestion...
  7. Yes, I am very aware of it's toxicity and dangers. It is stored in three 500ml heavy plastic chemical bottles with full seal lids in a sealed five gallon bucket away from anyone. I rarely let anyone handle it, but when they do, they are amazed by its' weight. Then it's off to wash their hands. I have seen small quantities go for some amazing sums of money. But homegrown terrorist crap stops me from selling it on the open market.
  8. So say if a guy has 1500ml of liquid mercury stored away and no useful purpose for it, what can he do with it?
  9. You mean like my Sonim XP8 that weighs in at just under a pound? (A third of that weight is the replaceable 4900mAh Li-Ion battery) Sonim XP8's size (Quote)"The Sonim XP8 is 3.1 inches (79.5 mm) wide, 6.0 inches (152 mm) tall, and 0.7 inches (18 mm) thick. The size makes it a bit difficult to use with one hand (If you are a Snowflake or have Linus hands). In the case of the Sonim XP8, it weighs about 335 oz (335 g). The phone feels quite heavy when used one-handed, and it's hard to hold for long periods. The weight isn't so much of a problem when used two-handed, but some people might still have issues when using it for long periods." Alas.... the phone is nearly bulletproof...
  10. Why do TI calculators cost so much? Designing and manufacturing Smart Bombs cost money....
  11. Eric Duncan, the mastermind of the Dell XPS 730X hybrid A11b bios was able to give me a solid answer about what's going on.... eduncan911 1 point·23 hours ago They are backwards compatible, but the timings have to be supported and run at slower speeds/larger timings. And the timings on the A10/A11b bios only allow up to 12 GB sticks as 24GB sticks are too dense and need an higher setting than the BIOS can support (can't remember the name of the one setting that isn't able to raise that high). In addition to that, ram compatibility is vastly different from one set to another set, with the same MCH and same CPUs. So I would forget any overclocking you have before and just start new to figure out the limits of your hardware. 12 GB is pushing the BIOS to its limits. While many claim everything is fine with 24GB, my tests across 3 different sets say otherwise and I would never recommend 24GB sets. So you're on your own here as I don't see how the BIOS can properly support them that large. "Runs fine at stock speeds" is not proof they run fine. Just shows the system is able to compensate for the errors, slowing down your overall bandwidth, while not not crashing. So with all that said, the only way to not change the ram settings/bus when overclocking would be use the multiplier, not bus bclk. I know, not as optimum on these i7 generation, but there the only way to leave ran timings along. As the very definition of raising bclk means you are going to overclock all buses, including the ram bus. In that case, the best you can hope for is to lower the ram ratio to keep the ran speeds are an acceptable level. IMO, this is fruitless - as the BIOS doesn't properly support these sizes. Also, the MCH on the CPU may not be strong enough. There's also some common voltage settings missing from the A11b bios, so you aren't able to push the 990X to its max.
  12. I wonder if the difference between the XMP 1.2 and 1.3 profiles might be the issue? I thought the XMP 1.3 was backwards compatible?
  13. Not at all. BSOD occurs seconds after starting Cinebench.
