    I guess this is a good place for a 10.000th post so here we go. 
     
    My GF's mom had her phone reboot because of a software update and after that she couldn't use the phone anymore because she doesn't know her Apple ID and Password, so she contacts her Ex who has all the data (yes, really). 
    So she get's access to her phone back after a couple days. During that time she can't do sh#t because she also doesn't know her emails credentials since she is just Auto-logged-in on her phone and her email also runs off of the server of her ex's company. 
     
    Me: well this is a great time to make a new email, change it everywhere and set up a password manager! 
     
    But no! She has a different, genius plan! 
    She just bought a little book and writes all her credentials in it. 
     
    That's exactly the definition of "NOT a genius plan". What the actual f#ck.

    FloRolf reacted to AbydosOne in Looking for input on a 40GB NAS build.   
    I have 10Gb to my NAS, and I seldom hit 40% of that (to a single RAIDZ2 (aka RAID6) 4-disk array, and then only when I pull multiple large files simultaneously). Maybe if you striped two or three five-disk arrays together you might hit 10Gb. Honestly, 40Gb is overkill unless you have an array of NVMe drives on both ends.

    FloRolf reacted to Arika S in Headphone stand passthrough   
    technically "yes". but in reality, no.
    The difference is going to be so negligible that unless the stand has a very very shit usb controller in it, you will never ever be able to tell the difference.

    German pieces are nice. I had a Tangente 35 before I got rid of it for the Longines. 
     
     
    Currently still have a Max Bill and a Zeppelin moonphase. Im a big fan of Bauhaus style designs so a Lambda might be in my future even though its quite similar to the Max Bill looks wise IMO. 
     
    I also love how slim a lot of the German pieces are. I hate chunky watches.

    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).

    Now that I have read "almost" everything Sinn 903 watch I needs to say that Sinn seems better than Breitling Navitimer. Arghh .... damn you @FloRolf  you messed up my head with a great German watch.

    Would be cool to have a cheap 4x HDMI 2.1 video output but they probably won’t do that in order to sell overpriced quadro cards

    I was not expecting Nvidia to release a new Pascal card in 2021.
     
    Maybe if we pretend like this is a really good graphics card all the scalpers will rush out to buy it, then get stuck with a bunch they can't sell.
    Wow, the GT 1010!? I've been waiting for this for years! This is going to be the best value graphics card on the market! Hopefully I will be able to buy one on launch!

    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.

    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.

    TBH I own most of my grail watches. I wouldnt mind an older 5508, but I'm not into spending 5 figures on a piece that old. I'd feel bad getting it polished and serviced too 😆
     
    I suppose maybe a nice grand complication of some sort would be nice down the line but I dont really like busy dials.

    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.

    If it's 1-8% at 1080p it's probably nothing at 1440p and 4k. Knowing Intel, they'll charge $550 for it and claim it's the best thing since sliced bread. I guess it'll at least make a good 800FPS CSGO CPU.
