Sounds like a grand idea as long as you don't mind the occasional "postponed charge" due to rainy weather, etc. If you're patient and just use the solar could pay for itself easy.

I mean, on the 50 days a year it does rain where I live, I can just plug it in. Still cheaper than gas at 1/4 the cost. Electricity costs 0.13 a kilowatt hour, so $10 to fill up my tank based on mileage vs the $45 i pay in gas now... so even if 0 solar and electric only... I'd save $1,820 per year on fuel costs on my commute to work.

electric is the future imo, no stopping it now. gas is just to messy and to expensive. and no moving parts in electric cars, less that can go wrong, just makes a lot of sense, regardless of climate.

I live in the pacific northwest so rainy days are always a part of my solar equations lol. Good to know you've thought it all out though.

Excited for this one - PreOrderd in August and just got contacted from Design Dept. :) View attachment 225528
I've just noticed that it's called the Rivian... and the background of their website looks like the view from Kaer Morhen. As a Witcher maniac, I'm intrigued! :twitch:

yep there is a 2020 chevy bolt near me for 19k even, brand new 0 miles. it has a battery recall cause these batteries can melt on rare occasion, but a software update fixed that, and on top of that software update when the new batteries get in you get a free replacement. seems like a pretty sweet deal overall. i can use half of the tax credit i think based on my income, so 15k for the car if i buy it now or something around there. plus my Uncle retired from GM, so I can knock off another 1-2k with his family discount. as far as economical goes, its the best bang for buck i'll ever get.

I'm considering buying the Aptera solar car, they are taking reservations now, 25 grand and it charges itself on solar around 40 miles a day it can do on solar. If I add in my own solar panel and generator backups, I could theoretically drive for 20 years without paying a single fuel cost to utilities or gas companies. hehe
why stop there? Build your own battery car with solar panels. Get someone to knit you some seatbelts and you can build it out of a mattress.

@R-T-B @nguyen It's not your LG OLED, but my night shift job allows me to watch movies and netflix at work, guess what just hit store shelves? 14" OLED 90hz panels, 100% dci-p3, TrueBlack HDR 600 - $749

guess who just joined the OLED crowd? sure I can't game on it (I'm hoping I can figure out a way to use it as an external monitor though, not sure if I can or not with this)

its on its way, but here is stock photo for now: its 11th gen intel with iris graphics, i might be able to get away with some indie gaming and card games, but thats it... here is to hoping I can get it to work as an external monitor for a gaming setup though... cause 90hz OLED on a budget and portable would be epic... the funny thing about having two jobs, I find myself buying more things. and I need to stop, this is probably my last big purchase for quite some time. hope its as pretty to look at as LG OLED tv's... but I can't carry an OLED tv to work, so RIP

You can game-stream to it, using something like Moonlight (Was made for Nvidia to android, but PC to PC works fine too)

Yeah, but then youre looking at a lossy compressed video signal. Hardly ideal.

bookmarking this, thanks. its worth a try, also i could try something like cloud gaming on it. does Stadia still exist, or does Geforce Now work on any PC or does it require a nvidia gpu?

Price gone up. I used to pick up DDR3 ECC REG sticks for dirt cheap.
Don't scare me I've ordered unbuffered I can buy a reg ecc 4gig stick here for less than $5 but my VM server doesn't support it.

Dont want to. Just saying I used to pick up REG ECC RAM (DDR3) for $40 CAD for 16GB and about $90 CAD for DDR4.

It is just the situation in the world and sucks.

It is cheaper for me to pick up used workstations for the parts than it is to buy the parts separately over here.

@ rares :laugh: Gskill Trident DDR3 2666 @ 2704 MHz with the 7860K, mine 7870k is a few MHz slower with 2680 :sleep:

Edit:
But yeah sometimes the cheaper Boards better than the GAM0R RGB, wait sorry in the Years for AMD FM2/+ there wasnt any RGB Gam0R shit,
a Cheap Z Board for Intel u could get for 80$, today is the Entry Z with RGB Skill0R by 150$ for 1200 or 250$ for 1700:laugh:

Picked up in i7 2760QM for my Dell N5110. Definitely better than the i5 2540M but it's all core turbo isn't as high as I was expecting @ 2.8GHz (even saw as low as 2.4GHz in prime95).
Temps are not much different from the i5 surprisingly, barely went past 80c core temps & 70c gpu temps running p95 & unigine heaven at the same time.
Pretty good for the anemic cooler pushing near 90w.

I bought something for $20 second hand today, that came with an unexpected gift

Telstra Smart modem version 2, with 4G backup connectivity!
1637282931715.png



So umm.... they're still paying for and using the plan, and the 4G SIM card is still installed and working.
I'm getting 25Mb down and 5Mb up for free, on a portable modem that literally works anywhere i have phone reception at someone elses expense.


I want to team it up with my VDSL, and gotta learn how.

So i get this, for free, until they change their plan:
