I think my dad told me he been throwing out like over 100 brand new dvd blank medias lately because here no one wants them because it's rarely used.

I dread the day that CDs and DVDs are no longer manufactured. The average joe gamer goes "pfft who cares" but the reality is there's many obscure uses of removable media where it's difficult to move away from a certain type of storage. Some industries are still using floppy disks for heaven's sake, and they stopped being manufactured years ago. They don't just grow on trees anymore so it becomes a real problem.

The japanese goverment is also on their way moving away from cd media and floppy discs that could be dvds too.

I enjoy it with my standalone blu-ray player and I buy movies and series I like even anime yes.

I prefer it in blu-ray but if they are only available in dvd well that's what I have to buy.

Bought a digital caliper. Resolution upto 0.1 mm and 0.01 inch. I got the plastic version so it doesn’t damage the things I'm to measure.

Was only $5. At first my expectations were low after watching a YT video about cheap calipers that said turning them on from open jaw position counts it as 0 and you have to reset after closing the jaw. Glad that, that’s not the case and it’s somewhat smart.

I think the main thing you should worry about cheap calipers are the measurement precision and repeatability, though its probably still precise enough for major usages

He should have put them on Ebay. Seriously, that's a waste...

Same here. I don't think it's going to happen anytime soon. There is still a dedicated market for them.

That's just for government data transportation use. For archival uses, not so much.

I mean I'm not looking for industrial level precision or something. And I can always sand down the excess.

oh well, tech! always wanted one of these ... (and it can act as a powerbank if needed ) so, now i can charge 3 21700 at the same time if i use the VC2S (and use the USB A of the VC2S to daisy chain )

Nitecore LC10
IMG_20220914_141629.jpgIMG_20220914_141645.jpg
the light on it show the charge of the battery (that one is almost empty) and like the VC2S you don't need to plug them in to check that

edit: bloody hell, just noticed the touch button on the back, plugged in with no battery the white module act as a flashlight, default : dim, 1 tap :brighter, 1 more tap : full light! literally awesome :laugh:
ah... it can also do it with a battery in and no USB plugged :D

the painting is good i guess it will


CP2077 controversial, i liked it even a few days after launch ... nowadays even more after the load of updates and recents free DLC, it's a decent game .... that's all
the box is ... well, it's quite nice, another box i will not throw away :laugh:

I just took this out of it´s box right now. Replacing my gtx 1650 low profile card. It´s the 6 gb version of this card. So in short, this card should be a mini-itx builders wet dream. What more is there to say.

The mouse is just there for at size comparison.

well, butter me up and call me a biscuit ... if it's not a RTX A2000 6gb ... DAMN! that thing cost 215chf more than what i paid for my Red Devil RX 6700 XT 12gb (it cost 665chf for me ) i actually wishlisted one alongside a RX 6400 4gb and i recently added, not in listing nor in stock but still, the MSI A380 LP 6gb, yeah i would be masochis... aherm, curious enough to torture me with an ARC, to the options for my SFFHTPCARGH! but well ... PCIe 3.0 and i7 3770 .... i might just get the RX 6400 4gb :laugh: or a GT 1030 2gb if i need video encoding ... since it's the only card cheaper than the RX 6400 4gb, but not by much :rolleyes:

Yes last I checked it was a RTX A2000 6 GB card and it's expensive because it is in nvidia professional lineup.

I got it to improve my dual systems mini-itx pc for a better gaming and workstation and the card has to be a low profile card. And with a gtx 1650 all ready in the machine. There is really only A2000 that is worth replacing gtx 1650 with and that has more than 4 gb vram. A2000 is the only right thing to get. I had hoped for a low profile cooled rtx 3050, but that never happened. So A2000 it is.

Put that behind me and start over and nope not giving up on WC either just waiting for my new pump/res to come back in stock and ordered this beauty today at an amazing discount so I’m running out AM4 in style baby!

Picked them up today. A new battery and tools to install it on my iPhone 8 Plus. Love that phone and I have no reasons to upgrade, it just has a crappy battery.

C-Note flat pack DIY speaker kit (with optional custom PCB crossover boards). All the panels are CNC cut so all you need for a kit like this a soldering iron, and some sort of clamping setup. If you get the optional PCB boards building the crossover super easy, no need to translate a logical circuit design to physical layout.

Decided to pick these up to try some different finishing ideas, and will give them as gifts are playing with them for a bit. They are only $150 a pair (and only $100, a year ago hence the name) so we'll see how they do but the drivers look and feel very solid and crossover is built around all very solid (but cost conscience) components. The MDF is only .5" so I may try to add a brace in the center of the cabinet, and they don't come with any batting material so you'll need to add that own your own for best results.

CNC MDF cabinet.

Dayton Audio drivers; 5.25" AL woofer, and .75" soft dome tweeter in a wave guide.

Crossover components, all poly caps, and air core inductors, regular sand cast resistor, overall much better quality components than any speaker you see under $600-$700. And then the optional MTG PCB board from eBay.

The drivers, port tube and misc bits.

New pump amd fittings. I’m so happy I got a “stubby”pump because I’m severely space constrained . Now I’m just waiting on my new MoBo I’ll probably throw my old one as a mockuo to get my tubing lengths right and do a proper leak test while I wait

I've changed my internet plan, guess that counts?
Technically same ISP as they bought out this other company, but the sub-company is offering discounted prices to lure people back to them after poor performance under the old owners


$75 a month to $54 a month, 50/20 with 5 free speed boosts a month to 100/40
Our line only does 80/30, so this genuinely seems like a good option
(Short of houses with more people i'll never understand the 'need' people have for gigabit plans, we have have 3x 4K streams + gaming with no issues on this)
