Sure thing, I'm easy enough on timing.
Going to bring the waifu along?
If she's game. She's got the whole damn summer off, although not sure she'll want to come along to a TPU mini-get-together while we talk about the forums and general nonsense crap.
get her to join the forums
Played with that AM1 Athlon yet?
I've priced up a 5350, MX100 and ASRock Mobo with USB 3.0 header and 4 sata ports, came to around £120. Got some RAM from Knoxx and my SG07+PSU combo laying around. It's replacing an AMD E350 AIO PC so anything is an upgrade.
Just received a new Ducky Shine III back from RMA -- Anyone interested? MX Brown switches & Blue LEDs
You broke another LED Mech keyboard?!
Nah it was the first ducky, Bit of a story.
I sent the defective ducky (with 4 or 5 dead LEDS) back and according to the instructions on their website, because I asked for a replacement, i shouldnt include any of the accessories or other shit that came with my keyboard because that shit will go missing. Strangely enough (or not) I forgot to include the USB cable and OCuK rejected the keyboard for RMA because they didnt have the 'power cable'. They said they'd be returning the keyboard to me but more than a week later I have received nothing back so i left them a webnote and those wankers still had my ducky sitting there.... Or one would say it was a .... "Sitting Duck" hurrhurrrhurrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.
Since they still had my keyboard i offered to send the USB cable to them and they agreed to have it sent in under the same RMA number. ANOTHER WEEK LATER - Nothing about the RMA, Not even a reply to my webnote that promised to let me know as soon as the USB cable had arrived - Had to do a little more chasing up. They denied receiving my USB cable but luckily I had tracking on it. There was even a handwritten note packaged with the cable telling them what it was for and why i had sent it in, but im sure even if they ran the RMA number through their systems they would have seen why the ducky was rejected in the first place and put 2 & 2 together.
after giving them the tracking number of the USB cable they finally got off their arses and sent me out a new ducky.
I originally hadnt expected the whole RMA process to take 3 weeks, but I bought my second ducky shine 3 on the pretext that it would probably take a while for me to get a replacement from OCuK because the keyboard was out of stock & they never seem to have more than 3 or 5 (of mine) in stock and they sell out quickly. Back when i RMA'd the ducky my corsair K70 wasnt back from RMA yet so i didnt have a spare keyboard.
so i bought second ducky instead of waiting. Im sure i can still sell it for full RRP if not £10 off Ducky keyboards are only available in limited numbers & very few retailers seem to stock them.
AMD 5350 + Asus AM1-I A + 4GB RAM + 2x2TB + Corsair CX430M
not played with it yet... did the install today, will install windows tomorrow or later.
Bought the Asus mini ITX board since you can potentially overclock with it
Gonna jump into some games, time to break out the AirCon!!
get a load of this guy with his fancy aircon
Yeah I saw. Shipments start in September for those that have already ordered. I won't be ordering until around my birthday.
kind of missleading title
at first i saw only title.
prateem could do it quite well if working for tabloid
he needs to proof read his articles
well he is ly ahead from newspapers in my country but still i think npu is more after info rather then sensation (anyone who understood this sentence gets pinte)
Well, ive just messaged my manager about going P/T for this month (fuck work!!!!) Unfortunately it does mean that i will be working Friday-Sunday if he okays it. So if we're gonna have a party its gotta be a week day unfortunately & i know its not suitable for everyone
It's summer, my work schedule is pretty relaxed, and I'm good to take random days off when I want.
I've started training myself with Reaper, and Audio editing and composition software because Adobe decided to make Audition a monthly subscription now (to the tune of a few hundred dollars a year). Got pretty tired of Audition CS6 and I only have a single license on sound editing PC. Found Reaper, started training in it, and it's remarkably good, and they have an awesome and very honest pricing model. Already blizted through about a Gig of recorded music at work for production, and I'm enjoying it quite a bit!
Well, I pretty much got harpooned like MH17. Next month I have 24 shifts in total, I fucking hate it, I really do. but arrange a date - It doesnt matter what day it is and i'll just call in and tell them to find someone to cover for me. They cant expect me to have a constant 100% availability when it comes to work. Honest to god im about to call them and tell them i quit regardless of if i have another job lined up or not. Im tired of being treated like a lackey and abused as such, One of the reason why i get asked to work so much is because im on a lower paygrade than everyone else and thus cheaper to run
Also since youre looking into recording stuff - If you could learn how to use EZDrummer - we could form a kickass band. I can do the bass & the guitars while you handle the drum samples & the rest of the mixing
Lol having some motherfucker lowball me on ebay over my £80 K70 keyboard.
Yooo hows all?!
anyone had problems with intel RMA?
Never had to RMA anything at all with Intel. If it's a CPU that's been shafted by an OC, I sure hope you paid their OC insurance
haha who knows?! but they've lost my chip. Or someone has in the netherlands!
Well, I hope you have postal tracking on that CPU. Ive had a few companies deny they ever received my RMAs but are quick to get off their ass and do something for you when you show them a tracking number.
Just like my recent RMA with OCuK. If i didnt poke them about it, my keyboard would have still been sitting there with them
