#222

I SENT THEM HARIBOS AND THEY SENT ME LIES!!!

Yes, its a complete sentence, Forum.


#223

About bloody time.


#224

Fucking card is delayed due to the high volume of stuff that was bought over the weekend.

I’m still hopeful that I will get a chance to install it before I go to Finland on Saturday. :crossed_fingers:


#225

Same for my stuff. The CPU is coming from Scan. Ordered Saturday and was only dispatched today.


#226

my last item (the extra ssd) is arriving today.

i got a sous vide cooker on a whim, and the chicken and porkchops have been great so far.

And mroe hue lightbulbs, for increased values of discoliving.


#227

You really got the Hue… There is a much cheaper alternative to the Hue. A Chinese manufacturer makes them(Xiaomi). Yee light its called. There is also another one called Lohas. Fl3xxxo gave me one of them and it’s been working well. I was able to link it to Alexa(Echo).


#228

I’ve tried alternatives but the Hue ones were
a) bundled at 3 for 60 something quid rather than their regular 40-60 quid a bulb.
b) produce better whites when using the colour bulbs (i’ve tried a few others, including Yee, but not Lohas)
c) I already have Hue bulbs in half the flat, a setup hue bridge, and spares, and my Echo is 1st gen and doesn’t include home automation stuff (it can control the hue via the bridge and sockets over wifi, but it can’t control zigbee stuff on its own), so extending that is preferable to replacing everything.

Now every light is a Hue one, apart from the bathroom (analogue dimmer) and guestroom.

Also an amazon fire hd 8 to control the speaker in the shower, because spotify on the fire 7 is balls. The 8 is surprisingly quick in comparison.

and some black command strips, a spare usb hdd to transfer stuff to for my folks for christmas/holidays, Cosey Fanni Tutti’s autobiography, a set of holesaw blades, and a copy of the 16th edition of 1800 mechanical movements, devices and appliances.

And this burger:

#241

My trusty 970. Oh how it has served me fucking well.

3 years running, never had an issue with it. I never even cleaned it and I was surprised as to how “clean” it was!

Size comparison *snicker…

Yeah, ok, this is pretty fucking meaty!

Mmmm, Blooo
