  1. We recently played a game with my GF's sister and her BF where you get a question (or statement) and everyone has to answer the same thing in order to get points. The question was "Something you don't gift for a birthday" We all answered stupid shit except her sister who said "a watch" We're all staring at her like And she says "What? Why? It would feel like a 'your time is running up' kind of gift." We continue staring at her. Her BF: "I just gave you a watch for Christmas and you gave me one for my Birthday just a
  2. what can i say, i am a sucker for my german watches! From Junghans to Sinn to Glashütte Original, Nomos etc. pp. I love them all Even considering the 903 myself but also interested in the 556 right now (albeit something completely different).
  3. GF: I have backpain

    Me: well then try to sleep without a pillow. 

    GF: but it's so uncomfortable, I can't do it! 

    Me: just try 10 minutes. 

    GF: I CAN'T

    Me: Just f-ing try! 


    GF 5 Minutes later *falls asleep and snores like an old man*

      Seriously though, sleeping without a pillow is really good sometimes and I do it quite regularly. 

    2. Skiiwee29


      Depends on the mattress type you have to really allow it. The back pain could be caused from a bad pillow causing spine misalignment. She may need to get a softer pillow.

      Yeah, I've done it. And girlfriend's (and wives) can be that way...

  4. Asus RMA trying to steal my identity.

      It's just a motherboard so there isn't even a system password :D

      My issues with it is, that the GPU Debug LED doesn't turn off once the system booted up. I have to restart the system within windows again

      every time in order for it to turn off. The LED itself woudn't be much of an issue if i didn't have a window sidepanel and it wasnt so DAMN BRIGHT.


      GPU and NIC are both fine so idek why it turns on.

      Remember when Facebook asked people for their E-mail password because „ they can confirm the confirmation E-mail for you “ ?

      Remember when Facebook

      @Drama Lama Remember when Facebook ran advertisements around the world how Facebook stood for privacy when it's a well-known fact that they live off collecting and selling people's data? Nothing Facebook ever said was remotely interesting because they're just disingenuous.

  5. Cool! But I am wondering, what is the nfc for?
  6. Omg, after yeeeeaaaars my brother finally upgraded from Win7 to Win10 and got a new boot SSD (coming from HDD...) and now he has all kinds of issues with it. 

    It's probably all caused by his Win7 installation that is still installed on the also connected HDD but he doesn't want to get rid of that yet. 

    1. manikyath


      tell your bro this: windows 10 LOVES to hang when there's a malfunctioning HDD installed, given the presumed age.. there's a good chance the HDD is breaking down.

    2. FloRolf


      @manikyath thought the same but apparently CrystalDiskInfo says it's alright. 

    3. manikyath


      crystaldiskinfo essentially only gives warnings with bad sectors.. it's "overall state" is about as useful as userbenchmark's overall ratings.

  7. You must be a big guy then There's also a Sinn Navitimer, maybe that's more your budget. They have the official license from Breitling to do it so it's actually a real Navitimer (though Sinn just calls is the 903). I am 25 and don't even have a retirement account so I guess you can go ahead Nah but seriously, maybe try saving up in bigger chunks and just go for it quickly. It's a real horogolical legend already.
  8. Yeah! Trying to keep it alive here we need some more member GS is absolutely sick. Owning a Spring Drive is definitely a must have for me in the future. That sweeping seconds is just amazing. And apparently their finishing is top f-ing notch.
  9. Ah! Glad you are still alive and well. Last status update didn't sound very good. What are your grails my friends? Mine is the Glashütte Original Panoreserve. I know it's got some Lange vibes but they basically have the same origin so that's fine by me. The PanoramaDate is executed nicer on the Glashütte though, so take that Lange! Also very nice would be the Grand Seiko SBGH 267. It's limited edition and therefore quite rare (and $$$) but i love it. Dial is pretty much perfect.
  10. I know money can't bring back our loved ones but at least it can take some of that stress away that'll sit in the back of the head of the bereaved. 

    So if you can, give something for our fallen LMG friend. 




    And there was also a Memorial Stream, if you wanna rewatch. First about 15mins are quite emotional though





    RIP Tyler :(

    1. Skiiwee29


      I'm not crying.. I rubbed Onions in my eyes.. I swear...



      :( 😿😿😿😿

  11. Daaaaamn, just finished Clone Wars and it's reeeeaaaally incredible. 


    Can't recommend it enough.

      If you liked Clone Wars, you should watch Rebels. I personally enjoyed Rebels even more than Clone Wars. The first season is okay, but all the seasons after that are amazing. It gets into a lot of expanded lore that's going to be important to understand for the new Star Wars shows Disney is making.

      I still have to finish season 7

      but yea good Star Wars series 

    4. FloRolf


      @HairlessMonkeyBoy actually season 5 is quite important, watch it! :D


      @WaggishOhio383 yes I plan to do that next. 😍


      @Drama Lamait's pretty good, watch it! 😛


  12. Ebay just sent me an email with the subject "Great news: NICs, postage stamps from france and it's colonies and much more...!" 


    Can't remember the last time I searched for postage stamps but it was probably never. Apparently they go nicely with NICs though and I have quite a few of those... 

    1. FloRolf


      Seriously though, I have five 10G NICs just lying around here collecting dust 😭😭

  13. Huh I watched MockingJay Part 2 yesterday where they conquer the Capitol and just that night 'Murica does the exact same. 


    It's happening! Prepare yourselves for the hunger games people! 

  14. What should my 10000th post be?

    1. soldier_ph
    2. Spotty


      You should post tenacious D's tribute in the what song are you listening to thread and say it's a tribute to your 10,000th post, and when people point out that it wasn't your 10,000th post because off topic doesn't count you can say


      This is not the 10,000th post, no

      This is just a tribute

      This is a tribute

      To the 10,000th post on the forum

  15. Care to share a photo? I've seen a Gold one of their Flagship line on Facebook recently and loved it. Gives some JLC vibes. Classy af. I have a roughly 6,3" wrist and I just got a 41 and that's really stretching it. Usually wear 38-40 but not smaller, that looks weird
  16. How's that far enough from a copy? It's pretty much an exact copy of the 300M I mean no hate, everyone should wear what they feel comfortable with but the only thing that's not a copy is the 12h marker, which is parallel on the original. Does the Helium Escape Valve even do anything on the Heimdallr?
  17. Cool, I'd love to be able to repair it myself or even just regulate myself. Also, a GMT is high up on my Wishlist for 2021. I am hoping for a new Tudor BB58 GMT because the standard Tudor GMT is too big but it's my favorite one. Even though it would by far be my most expensive watch I'd probably order a BB58 GMT right away Also like the new Lorier GMT but it's too similar to my Neptune imo and I like to have variety in my collection.
  18. Tech Tip: actively cool your older 10gbit NICs or else they just overheat and stop working.

      Part of the problem is they're copper. If you use SFP+ w/ fiber transceivers those 10Gig NICs don't run nearly as hot. They run warm without active cooling but not to any concerning degree.

    3. FloRolf


      @Windows7ge yes definetly. But i just like how RJ45 based NICs integrate waaaay easier into "existing" networks. 

    4. Windows7ge


      Yeah, for my own use case SFP+ was the way to go but if you want your 10Gig network to have connections to your 1Gig network it can save you time/money if they're physically compatible.


      SFP+ to 10G RJ-45 transceivers exist but they're pricey and SFP+ switches are also not exactly pocket money.

  19. Get NAS drives. I am running WD red but it now depends on the capacity you chose as the new ones are SMR, which is not recommended. Else I'd go seagate ironwolf. What raid do you want to run and what OS?
  20. Can someone explain why there is two types of ads and why both are shit? 


    We have the:

    "THESE are the Top 3 *whatevers* of 2020, click here to find out more" 


    And then we have

    "THIS will happen in Season 3 of *some show* after *dude* died!" 



    Can we just please turn this shit around? 

    I want to know the top 3 right away but I DON'T want the Spoiler that the dude died. Wtf man. 

    1. Benji


      I rather wonder about the fact that these small banners for "This odd trick/consuming this odd food will improve/fix *insert damaged body part/function* up to * times in seconds/after the first use! You just need to..." have been declared as a fraud by Google and they want to go against it, but they're the only ads that I see and they become more and more even though Google wants to stop the spread.

    2. manikyath


      i only get car ads and tampon ads...

  21. We are writing the year 2021 and it's finally working boooiiiis.





    took me well over a year and i don't know why it's working but it is! 10gbit connection to the NAS goes brrrr.

      @FloRolfPics of your setup when ?

    3. FloRolf


      @soldier_ph when I cleaned up, so probably never lmao.


      But it's pretty sick :P




      Nah not really. 

    4. Windows7ge


      If you can run iPerf on both sets of interfaces it'll help you tell if it's a network issue or something else.

  22. Are you 100% sure your HDD enclosure is usb3 and you are really connected to the USB 3 ports on the Pi? Does the HDD have it's own power supply or does it rely on the pi? Because that might be a problem too
  23. Well damn, 

    Robocopy ladies and gentlement, is THE shit.

    Testfile: CSGO on Steam; 28,4gb with ~4000 individual files


    Windows File Copy: 18 Minutes 10 Seconds





    2 Minutes 6 Seconds.




    1. FloRolf


      Thing is, that there were so many small files that speeds dropped to just a few KBytes/s a lot and my 10GBe Network was barely used, if at all.



      Copied from 960 Evo NVMe to dual RAID0 860 evo over 10GBe btw. 

  24. Well yes and no. If you had vsync or a frame cap on your GPU would be less stressed running 1080p vs 4k. But generally the GPU was made for that and doesn't care.
