Bought KH3.maxresdefault.jpg.c3eb79b636fe29418959b3f92bf0654f.jpg

 

Incredibly disappointing. Not worth playing, IMO.


Come Bloody Angel

Break off your chains

And look what I've found in the dirt.

 

Pale battered body

Seems she was struggling

Something is wrong with this world.

 

Fierce Bloody Angel

The blood is on your hands

Why did you come to this world?

 

Everybody turns to dust.

 

Everybody turns to dust.

 

The blood is on your hands.

 

The blood is on your hands!

 

Pyo.

Bought a Asus ROG Strix GL702zc, with Ryzen 1600 6 core CPU(Desktop CPU, so i can replace it like a normal PC with any other Ryzen cpu ;P) 
8 GB DDR4 RAM, 1000 GB SSHD and AMD RX580 and 17,3 IPS screen(Freesync)  for 700 euro/  790 Dollar @ Mediamarkt Germany(sold out). (it was 1499 dollar)

Upgraded it with a m2 SSD 500 Gb and 16 GB DDR4 RAM(24 GB RAM now).Costs: 140 euro's

The 1000 GB SSHD will be replaced with 2 TB SSD and going to 32 GB of Ram and maybe the CPU to Ryzen 1700 or 2700 8 Core. 

Added a picture of the motherboard before adding the upgrades. Rendering and gaming is great.

It's acts and feels like a Desktop PC you can replace everything, HDD,RAM and CPU!

BF5 at Ultra@1080 is 60-70 fps ❤️
 

It's a Desktop replacement, not a travel laptop.

Linus review with the 8 Core Ryzen 1700 configuration:

Published on Feb 4, 2018
A desktop Ryzen 7 processor - in a laptop? Oh yes, and the multi-core performance is insane.

Bought a Fallout 4 Pip-Boy and the Fallout 76 Helmet everything included for 70 dollars.(Both are limited/collectors editions)

(When Fallout 76 came out the Pip-Boy was like 100 dollars and the Fallout 76 Helmet still is @ 200 on ebay ?

Any players who still play Fallout 76 on PC and wanna team up? Please let me know!

Snatched up some industrials. My first venture into Noctua cooling. Performance gains (on paper) show a 73% gain in static pressure with a 15% reduction in noise. 

 

Wiring them up tonight then running some stress tests. ?20190216_102451.thumb.jpg.6accbe71677f79aee7c883c3d2e9a077.jpg

Today was like Christmas. I got these goodies today.

 

IMG_0026.thumb.JPG.2c33f1de113a7110b67f918f6355ddb7.JPG

 

I was driving by Ace Hardware today and decided to drop in and see what they might have on sale. They had two mpre of those 12" Quick Grip clamps I had gotten earlier so I glommed onto them.

 

Later in the day,  was driving by another Ace and dropped in. No clamps on sale but they did have an "imp" (slang for a midget tubing cutter for use in tight spots) on sale. I've been planning on getting one of them for quite some time and, for 4 shekels, I couldn't pass that up.

IMG_0035.thumb.JPG.98cd6bc6af7ffe8e0971be0fbf538b58.JPG

 

I've been wanting a set of self centering drill bits for a long time and have a project coming up that could use one so I ordered a set off Fleabay.

 

IMG_0030.thumb.JPG.eb14292766d6e403ef5d4cfdede0b014.JPG

 

I already have one of these four port USB 3.0 hubs that will be used with my desktop machine (whenever I finish building the darn thing!) but I might need a second one. Also, the notebook I'm going to set up for Linux has only three USB ports: two USB 3.0 (excuse me, USB 3.1 Gen 1: a pox on the morons who made that change ? ) and one USB 2.0 port located on the right side near the front. Besides the USB 2.0 (or is that USB 2.1 Gen 1? /s) being in a rather inconvenient location, I often need more than three ports (I'm often using five ports--one port has a two port hub plugged into it--on my Win 7 notebook). So I got two more of the hubs.

 

IMG_0029.thumb.JPG.e0ffa7de87d44a0e353e4c17eeef1daf.JPG

 

The first time I bought one of these, it didn't like more than two USB flash drives plugged into it and I had to return it for a replacement, which worked great. So when I got these, I tested each one with, first, three drives and a mouse dongle, then with four drives, plugging the hub into both a USB 3.1 Gen 1 (?) port and a USB 2.0 port. They worked great. My only complaint is the really bright, blue light that comes from that strip on top. I currently painting over the stripes to block the light. It will take several coats (that's what I did with the first hub I got).

Its an AS73 so it actually wasnt much! I paid around 550 CAD. As for pickups, threstock ones are fine after adjusting the height and pole pieces so they'll remain for now. I might reverse the magnet in the neck though because I like out of phase tones in the middle.

I'm a collector, and I've always vowed to get another Wii U when I had to sell mine for money in college.


Here's what I'm restarting my collection with.

 

w2pikjbbmmg21.jpg

 

Here is the console in my entertainment center, with the pro controller charging.  

image0.jpg

 

A few things.

Yes I have a Switch.

Yes I prefer the Switch.

I rebought a Wii U because 1) I'm a collector.  2) I vowed to get another one.  3) It does hold a special place in my heart.  It was the first console I bought with my own money outside of high school.


Currently focusing on my video game collection.  Here's what I got so far.  

Keep in mind I'm still grabbing multiplatform games on PC, unless they happen to be cheaper on PS4 or Switch (such as RDR2 as of right now)

 

Currently Playing:  

  • Animal Crossing: New Horizons - Switch
  • Super Mario Maker 2 - Switch

Games Beaten:

  • God of War - PS4
  • The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - Switch

(will be reset at the beginning of each month)

Put on hold:

  • Splatoon 2 - Switch

 

How many games I'm needing:

  • DS: 82
  • Wii: 38
  • 360/PS3: 84
  • 3DS: 60
  • Wii U: 6
  • PS Vita: 34
  • PS4: 20
  • Switch: 16

Car insurance. Surprisingly, with 10 months of ownership of me car, a year of no claims bonus, 1yr 3mths since obtaining my licence and actually being 18 instead of 17, my insurance got halved xD

Dad got this 120GB feller to replace the trusty Hitachi 80GB 5.4KRPM ripper in my file server/video workhorse. Not having to wait multiple minutes for it to boot and then a few more to do anything will be nice.

 

EDIT: Ok I'm salty how fast my file server boots now lol. Server 2012 R2 boots so quick you get about 3-5 seconds of the UEFI spinny boi and then you're dumped in the desktop and ready to go 3 seconds after that (about 20-25 seconds from button press to full chooch). Compared to my main rig that takes a full minute from button press to ready...

 

Also peep my phone's increasingly bad camera. Hopefully that'll be fixed once mom has money to get my sister and lil ol me our upgrades.

Weird, every phone when I set up without a sim, and then later insert a Bell sim. Seems to wipe the entire phone.

I've had my Eastpak backpack for almost 10 years now, but last month I noticed that there are wear holes in the bottom corners.  Time for a new backpack. 

I decided to give the eBags TLS Professional Slim a try. 

1959446818_eBagsTLSProfessionalSlim.jpg.d7f930e09e876cfc38fd82ed93b985ce.jpg

Loving it, but it's not perfect.  The metal zipper pulls are clanking like crazy, so I'll probably modify those soon to quiet them down.

I also heard about people accidentally dropping this bag because the plastic clips at the bottom of the shoulder straps can let go, so I'm looking into replacing those with carabiners ASAP.

Also 3x 128GB Samsung Duo Plus USB3.1 sticks.  And a 256GB one.
