I got a batch of black PCBs manufactured through JLCPCB and they turned out great. Not my design but it's the first time I've custom-ordered from a PCB manufacturer. The 100x100mm boards in a batch of 10 end up only costing me $2 per board including shipping so it's super inexpensive.

The green board (right) is one that I bought off Ebay, the silkscreens show an obvious difference in quality. Not sure who manufactured the Ebay ones.

I just bought a Logitech MX Vertical. Hopefully my arm will thank me for it
I was about to get one, before I got two wrist rests and taped em to my deskpad
(I can lift and move the deskpad and the wrist rests go with it)


Theres a gliding sliding wrist rest doodad thing that looks ideal for use with the vertical mouse - a million cheap knockoffs, but this is the one i keep getting ads for

Kinda got bit by the Oled bug I've had my LG C1 for about a year now and can't really even look at a VA/IPS panel anymore and not get meh vibes...

Had a really hard time choosing between this and the S95B but after seeing both extensively in a bright room (calibrated) I actually liked the G2 better.... The Samsung would have saved me 3-400 usd so Kinda bummed I didn't prefer it. They are really hard to tell apart unless side by side though. I'm not sure if it's just the coating on the screen Samsung uses but the LG blacks look much darker to me in a well lit room maybe it was just panel to panel variance. I only briefly got to look at the A95K while impressive wasn't in my price range for the 65 inch model also it felt less responsive to me in gaming vs the LG anyway.

This will replace my Samsung JS8500 from 2015 that I will be donating locally.

I bought something tech related
Nah just kidding in got some free pieces of wood to modify my monitor stand
1668561708007.png

Although i plan to lap that bitch and treat it like a CPU



Using ryobi sander thingy (i bought new sandpaper for it, so more not-tech for tech)
1668574465155.png



So i'm using tech and not tech on not tech to alter the not tech that holds my tech

Partially altered not-tech:
1668574376924.png



Monitors currently raised above desk height by this, which is absolutely neither tall enough, nor straight
1668574533330.png



Give it time to dry (a day?) and I'll sand it with the finer stuff, and see if it needs a second coat or not - I just want zero risk of splinters from it, and i'm learning a few tricks while i'm at it

(I've already used this stuff to fix a door that expanded every time it rained, water was soaking in and it'd jam every damn winter - sanded it back and coated it, shouldn't happen again whilst being an invisible repair)

Uhmmm.... "G-Sync Ultimate"... How well does that work with a "Sapphire 6700XT Nitro+".. :confused:
I get generic “Adaptive Sync” don’t think it annoys me too considering they just announced a Freesync model but I ordered this in August so just happy to finally have it

They are cute. Remind me of Puyo Puyo's "beans".
They are from the Ghibli film Spirited Away I have Kodama from Princess Monoke on top

Not seen Spirited Away, but Princess Mononoke is great. The black worm things freak me out! Anyway, back on topic...

Not seen Spirited Away, but Princess Mononoke is great. The black worm things freak me out! Anyway, back on topic...

Just remembered their heads rattle and click. I did see Mononoke in 2006 and haven't since, so I'm impressed by my old man memory.

I get generic “Adaptive Sync” don’t think it annoys me too considering they just announced a Freesync model but I ordered this in August so just happy to finally have it
It's good that the newest gen of G-Sync controllers actually support AS/FS, unlike previous ones. That proprietary BS was just too dumb.

I just hate paying for the module I'll never use...
