Xbox 360 controllers FTW. I've gotten almost a dozen at em at the goodwill and they make wonderful HTPC controllers. There's a "mod" you can do to the dpads to make them suck less too, basically you just cut a circle of plastic (like from a coffee can lid) and place it under the dpad, makes them clickier and more satisfying. There's guides out there if you're interested.

I just offered $14.50 on a lot of VeggieTales tapes. All because I wanted one of the tapes in the lot.

That specific tape is the 1999 retail release of the episode Larry-Boy and the Fib from Outer Space, a tape I've been trying to scout out for a long time.

This is what happens when your planned 2000 subscriber special is the opening and the closing to one of my favorite episodes.

Was gonna buy Bloodborne for my PS4 but my wife thought we needed some new "professional" ice cleats for when we go winter hiking (WE NEVER DID THIS ONCE EVER). But you know the drill—so I did some research, found some good ice cleats (here) and found some good deals on amazon. I am now a proud owner of two pairs of ice cleats that can be used for ice fishing!! Hahaha.

 

What a day.

Not sure if you know this or not because you say you love guns but say 5.56 isn't small, but .22 caliber is small. .223/5.56 typically goes up to 90gr.

@fluxdeity I believe you have taken the conversation we had, out of context. @Drak3 comment wasnt about the round size. And just so you know the 5.56 round can be up 155 grain ... it's just not common in the civilian market...

Correct.

@Drak3 and I finished our discussion via PM so as not to derail the topic by turning it into a gun thread. 

 

and you may have missed the tl/dr;

On 5/21/2019 at 7:55 PM, Drak3 said:

TL:DR

I like AR15s

 

Alot.

 

 

 

 

 

Alot alot.

 

With that, I will say this ends here, so this doesn't derail the current topic.

Please move over to the Gun Club Thread to continue discussion or open a PM.

Thank you.

Image result for antec 900

 

Not mine exactly, but was too lazy to take a pic. For anybody who cares, an NDH 15 does fit in an Antec 900! Only just, but it does.

 

Also cable management is a nightmare in this case, you need custom cables to have a chance of making something decent. Right now it's a mess in mine 😅

I'll be able to continue my project once this gets here.

My 480 is having some issues, basically it's failing.  I got it used for $90 like right after the mining crash, so it's not like I'm out a bunch.  I decided to get the AMD anniversary edition 590, cause why not, cool piece of computing history IMO.

Found a good deal on a 16GB kit of ram.  3000MHz, I'll finally be off of 2133MHz.  I eventually am planning to switch my board to a better board and maybe upgrade to a 2600 once Ryzen 3 drops (assuming prices go as low as they did when Ryzen 2 dropped.  Like, Micro Center had 1700s for $100 at one point.  If I can end up getting a 2600 or even 2700 for $100, hell yeah)

Decided to try that coffee.  I keep seeing it in all the ads, so I figured why the hell not.  I'll give it a shot.

These are called vixen files. They are designed to be non-clogging when filing softer metals, such as lead, brass, or aluminum, but work surprisingly well on mild steel. The curved tooth design helps to force metal shaved off to be expelled from the teeth as more metal is shaved off. They also can give a surprisingly smooth surface despite the coarse teeth.

 

I already have an old 10" vixen file that my Daddy gave me decades ago (no telling how old it was when I got it) but it was finally getting a bit long in the tooth (pardon the pun) so I bought these; an 8" and a 14".

Bought an iPhone Xr 64GB the other week. Slapped a Dbrand swarm skin on it along with a tempered glass case & screen protector. Looks nice. I also love how Dbrand let you opt to not have the Apple logo now.

Just be careful how you use it.  I tend to have the USB port about 2 feet from the controller, with the entire cable hanging.  That kinks the cable between the rubber sleeve at the controller and the weight, causing it to fail eventually.  A friend of mine has the exact same problem.  We usually need to replace ours after about a year and a half.

 

Anyway ...

 

 

I've been having some audio issues with my webcams' mics either sounding bad (Logitech c900) or failing (Microsoft HD-6000 from somewhere before WWII), so I figured I'd up my audio game.

Creative Sound BlasterX AE-5.  Don't care about the RGB, but I am curious how much of a difference it's going to make for lossless music playback.

It's an iPhone 4s that I got for $20 on eBay. It's running iOS 6.1.3 and is in pretty good physical condition. There are some minor scuffs and scratches on the screen, but nothing bad for the price I paid for it. There is also some weird delimitation that happened under the corners of the screen but it doesn't affect the display any:

I've been able to log into my iCloud account and install some apps. iMessage sadly does not work anymore and there is no AirDrop on iOS 6 so I had to set up a shared PhotoStream to get photos to and from it conveniently. Right now it makes a great iPod and classic mobile gaming device :P

Motherfuckers think I'm kidding when I say I buy tape lots for one tape. Here's a cover art scan of that one tape I bought it for.

Yes, I spent a grand total of $19.50 on ten VeggieTales tapes because I wanted one tape out of the collection.
