I just bought ten of these Kingston 16GB USB 3.0 flash drives.

 

IMG_0049.thumb.JPG.e0f52b98da3812ac146e6523473c935a.JPG

 

I wanted to get some identical drives to use for Macrium Reflect rescue media for restoring images but Reflect's Win PE app won't install on drives larger than 4GB. The smallest USB 3.0 flash drives I could find from reliable manufacturers at reasonable prices (not just the cheapest) were 16GB. I did find some USB 2.0 4GB drives at Frys.com and ordered them but multiple things went horribly wrong with the order from the word go (I'm never ordering from them again), including problems with their website screwing up the order (twice), the order disappearing from tracking, and them refusing to return my emails (I finally resorted to phone calls and a BBB complaint to settle things). It turned out the order was shipped, it did eventually arrive, and has since been returned.

 

While waiting for the ill fated order, I looked into using some older Kingston 8 GB USB 3.0 flash drives I have instead and replacing them with larger ones. I did some fooling around with the 8GB drives and, although it galled my soul to do it, I found they would work for rescue media if I shrank each one's partition to 3.79GB so I ordered the new 16GB drives from B&H Photo (they arrived before the Frys order did). 

 

I labeled all the new drives for the computers they were going to be kept with (two for each of three notebooks and four for the desktop), shrank the old 8GB drives to 3.79GB, then labeled the old drives as rescue drives for each of my four computers.

 

The old drives are fine for use on a desktop but they couldn't be plugged in side by side on the notebooks, which is why I got the slimmer 16GB drives. I'm happy with them. The fatter ones will be OK as rescue drives since only one will ever be plugged in at a time.

Its absolutely perfect.

Have you used it with Bluetooth or just the dongle? Super curious how they do on BT since I've been eyeing one up for a long while and would use it pretty much exclusively with BT.

Tan AR, I like it.

Whenever I start getting into guns like I'd like to, I really would like an olive AR or something, really.

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

Happened across an old Pentax MG 35mm SLR at a thrift shop last evening for $8... couldn't pass it up for that steal of a deal, I've been wanting a decent film camera to kind of tinker with. I couldn't get it to work correctly in the store but it didn't seem like anything was actually broken, just seized from sitting around or what-have-you, figured a bit of a deep clean would help that along. It's a bit rough in places (battery cap is stripped real bad so that needs to be replaced, leather grip is certainly worn...), but I managed to free up the lens release and film advance and somehow even got the shutter to work once or twice with these mystery-aged batteries while screwing with the film advance. I'm excited see if it's actually working properly once I replace the batteries, then I'll just need to find some half-decent film for a half-decent price.

I finally got around to upgrading my rig - I bought another 27'' 1440p monitor (Asus pb277q) and a desk mount to hold of the beauties. I also got myself a Razer Mamba TE (mostly because I can now finally sync the lighting on all my peripherals) and a headphone stand - which is not in the picture

Today I bought 8K worth of treasury bonds. 

 

Unfortunately I can't show everyone because that would require revealing my account number.

I'm gonna do a motherboard swap on my mom's laptop because, well, let's just say an AMD E1-1200 doesn't cut it for any operating system newer than Windows XP.

Yes, this motherboard'll work; I have one that has a fried charger connector port and the swap worked just fine barring that.

 

Also, I'm incredibly close to buying thigh highs. That's where my life is heading.

My new toy came in today. 😁

 

My new Heritage Rough Rider 22/22mag revolver. Made in USA and only $160. I heard so much about it being a fantastic revolver and well made. Once I got it in my hands all I can say was wow! Timing is tight and has some heft to it.

 

Been a long time since I had a 22 and I think it's time to get one.
