As of September 2022, SpaceX has over 2,300 functioning Starlink satellites in orbit.

38 dead satellites won't disrupt anything really. They launch 53 new ones with every single Falcon flight, which is often these days.

Edit: on-topic. no new purchases for me, cause food has doubled in price where I am. so... yeah. lol
I don't much like the idea of disposable satellites though.

I have a 3470T in my little SFF box now for downloads like that, such small power consumption


I have a 1TB USB 3.2 10Gb/s NVME drive, so i download on one PC and wrrrrrr it to the others if its larger than a few GB's

With streaming and codec changes, medias so much smaller... 4.3GB used to be 576i, and now thats a 4K movie
I realized recently that we could actually bring back the video CD LOL with AV1 (of course not in high bit rate 4K).

So I tried to repair my other LG V40 because its battery swelled, and I've determined that they are impossible to repair without damaging the screen. Now with two dead V40s, I decided that I wanted another phone with similar specs. The Pixel 3 seemed like a good choice, being (supposedly) easy to mod, somewhat easy to repair, and having the exact same SOC. I began the hunt for one.

I originally got one on eBay for around $85 that was advertised as "Factory Unlocked", but when I got it, it turned out to be a carrier unlocked Verizon one (IMEI began with 35). Verizon is a shit company that doesn't allow you to actually own the products you "buy" from them, so I couldn't unlock the bootloader.

I promptly returned it and found a "for parts or not working" Pixel 3 for $65. It was advertised as being in good condition on the front and having a cracked back. I asked the seller for the first digits of the IMEI, and it begins with 99, which means it's a non-Verizon phone. Upon hearing that, I bought it.



The condition is as described; actually maybe better. The front is near immaculate while the back is pretty rough. The screen has no burn-in.

The Pixel 3 has a Snapdragon 845, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, and a 1080p OLED screen with no notches or cutouts. It also has front-facing stereo speakers, but sadly no headphone jack.



But most importantly, being a non-Verizon phone, I was able to unlock the bootloader and root it.

I plan to use this as a test bed for things I want to do with my main phone (Pixel 5a). I want to try out LineageOS and GrapheneOS, and now I can.

I also figure that if I ever have to replace the battery, I might as well replace the back glass too.

EDIT: I was wondering why entering the IMEI into Google's repair site didn't work, so I did a check through another site, and it turns out this is a factory unlocked Pixel 3 from Germany. Kind of interesting, I guess.

Ive been testing the headset for about 3 weeks now and just came down to 60% from day 1. Pretty damn good battery 10/10. Comfortable wise ill give it 7.5/10 maybe changing the pads will make it more comfy.
Gonna dress that Noctua
Haven’t tested the duster yet, hope it gets the job done since my case gets dusty pretty fast.
…..and the rtx 3080 is giving me headaches with the cpu bottleneck but watching Nvidia launch is No No buy 4000 series for me. May keep it may not, still have 2 weeks to decide.

EDIT; I'm looking very favorably at this, where did you buy it? Perhaps a link?
EDIT2; Looked around and discovered it's a Euro only system. Bloody tat that..

Keep it and upgrade your CPU to a 5800X3D. You'll thank yourself later.

Yeah I could not find it on amazon or other US sites, also not on panasonic USA website...

This would be another option for you: https://www.newegg.com/p/12K-0366-00020?Description=Denon D-M41&cm_re=Denon_D-M41-_-9SIAU2EHPH3883-_-Product&quicklink=true
That's a 60 Watts system though... I tested this one as well in a local shop, the panasonic sounded somewhat better imo, but you can connect a separate subwoofer to this denon, that's a nice option and it has 2 optical inputs. Oh and I just see now it has only AM/FM radio, no DAB+ in this US version, but DAB+ may not be needed for US for now I don't know....

The Panasonic is a 120 Watts system.

I'm not spending that much money on a mini stereo. That form factor is what I want which is why that Panasonic you've order caught my interest. The Denon is nice, but not worth it to me. Hell, I spent $400 on my JVC in 2005 and it was top of the line. I'm not spending $860 for something that is technically inferior to what I have now. Thank You for the suggestion though! I appreciate you taking the time to look!

Was thinking more along the lines of this one.

But strongly considering this;
This one because it will remove the need for my audio switchbox and I can use my existing speaker set, which are excellent. Only problem is that it might be a bit too powerful and make more heat than I want it to.

Was also thinking about this. My local BestBuy has one on display and it sounds very good.
The price is good and the specs/quality is on par with what I have already. It'll fit into my existing desk setup, which is the reason I'm looking for a replacement for the JVC system..

Then there's this one from Onkyo;
Which also has everything I need but would get very warm..

Choices, choices...

I still have a 5.1 Dolby Surround Sony stereo set in boxes with a 3 CD changer, there was something with the CD's not playing anymore, anyway my space is limited now and so bought this little set for on my desk, will use it for PC as well.

Koollance quick disconnects. I installed them for my GPU with the arrows indicating the flow direction as a reminder.
Now I can finally take my GPU out without having to drain the loop and switchout an NVMe drive next week because it involves taking off all the motherboard armor.
(edit) oops, I had everything hooked up right but, it looks like I had the arrows pointing in the wrong direction, shhh don't tell anybody. :banghead: (note to self, don't make loop changes at 2am)

I finally found a machine screw that fits my ram heat spreader so I could mount the noctua fan.
