Still haven't opened that damn mouse ^^

Last night we drove out to the ghetto and I paid $20 for a Wii in unknown working condition. They said it works, but it has no Wiimotes and is missing the gamecube controller and memcart covers. I figure I'll softmod it and use it in here to play games I've missed out on. :p Or put it in the closet as a spare for the living room one....

It works!

Now that I know it works I placed an order on Ebay for a set of original matching Gamecube controller and memory card doors. So now it will be a $25 Wii. Big Grin

Just finished backing up the EEPROM and then softmodding it. Now just to find an old USB hard drive and load it up with Wii and Gamecube games! Smile

Odd mixture of stuff, I know. Razer mouse pad to replace my warped RatPadz XT, 16" Hawaiian Breeze stand fan with DC motor, 125 10" x 7/16" Hot Melt Glue Sticks, Jalapeno Corer, and finally a new OEM Whirlpool ice maker module for our 2 year old Maytag french door fridge.

Picked up a new NIC because I finally kind of realized that my motherboard doesn't support Gigabit Ethernet. I have one PCI slot left on the board, so there's room.

I bought a roof. It hurt.

Also, a pink and black OtterBox for Julie's Galaxy S4, because she's on her second one.

I wanted the EdgeRouter X SFP but no one has them in stock yet. Also
  1. It was $58.55 after shipping
  2. Can run from the POE injector I have for my Ubiquiti UniFi AP
  3. Still have enough power left over from said POE injector to power said AP

I love my UniFi AP. And it isn't that expensive, at least compared to other enterprise grade gear.

We bought a 2003 Honda CR-V last weekend for my cousin to replace his 2002 Mazda 626, and so today my project was to swap the radios, or at least remove the one in the CR-V and replace it with the one from the Mazda. Took me about 6 - 7 hours all told.... lots of soldering wires, removing trim panels, and running and hiding wires (like the bluetooth mic wire) in the Honda.

The CR-V had a fairly nice Sony head unit with HD Radio, iPod connection, MP3 playback, etc... but it didn't have Bluetooth. The Kenwood in the Mazda (which I installed almost a year ago exactly) has all that plus Bluetooth.... so yeah.

The last few hours of this work about killed me - damn near 100 degrees already out there....

One of my coworkers upgraded his bike's pedals to full clipless, so he gave me his old ones. They look something like this, but they're not that model. He also gave me the SPD cleats that came with his new pedals because his shoes already had cleats ... which meant I had to get some bike shoes.

Found a local place selling these for 20% off, and used a $50 gift card I had in my wallet, so I ended up getting 'em for $30.

Also got these because the grips on my bike are missing the endcaps, which would disqualify me from this Sunday's sprint triathlon. I'll also need a new helmet because the regulations require one that is at most 3 years old, and mine is 10.

Next up: tires and tubes. 700x32c. The bike is a hybrid -- Raleigh Cadent FT2 -- so it's most certainly not the perfect tool for the job. Given that this is my first triathlon of any kind, though, I think it's excusable Smile

I succumbed to the almighty will of Nox, since I needed a new computer chair, and bought a Turcotte. They're having a sale (and free shipping), so I grabbed it for $70 plus tax.

It's entirely possible that I may need a change of underwear right now.

For two reasons:

1. OMG TEH SEXY!!!
2. The Newegg shipping box was beat to hell, and the motherboard box is actually slightly bent (!!). Took the motherboard out and examined it really quick and it seems undamaged. Still, Fedex must have given this box the Ace Ventura treatment....

Didn't buy anything for home ... but for work, I bought the following:

Two of the 24TB versions of this: http://www.buffalotech.com/products/desk...ion-quad-2

Seven of these: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as...6834232376

...and seven of these: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as...2W02DV8166

Obviously I'm going to swap the SSDs into the Asus laptops and then image them with Windows 10. I'm thinking 500GB may have been too much because everyone getting the laptops will also be set up on Office 365 with 1TB of online storage, but whatever.

So ... last Friday I ordered a 500GB Samsung 850 Evo and a Kingston HyperX 16GB DDR3 kit (red heatspreaders ... cheapest by $0.40). It was supposed to be delivered yesterday, but Amazon screwed up the shipment, so it hasn't even gone out yet. That was for my dad, and he paid for it (because it's for his computer after all), so I didn't count that as a purchase.

Today I bought an LG 43LF5100 -- a 43" 1080p LED TV. It's going to replace my 8-year-old 40" Samsung TV, which shows artifacts on the left half of the display, takes 8 tries to power on successfully, and has a dead right channel. I'll keep the soundbar because it's better than whatever speakers are built in to the new TV. It's $284.99 on Newegg right now.

Sounds like at least partially bad caps on that Samsung.

If you're handy with a soldering iron it might be a fun project... Wink

Once I take it off the mount I'll open it up and see if I can't get a 40" monitor out of it Smile I can use that as my primary gaming display, and my 24" 1080p monitor for other things.

A 43" LG 43UF6430 UHD TV to replace my nearly 4 year old LG 42LK450 that I use as a PC monitor and TV at night.

A Samsung 64GB MicroSD card to replace the 32GB in my phone
A pair of nice looking pants from Kohl's that are going to go back because they're way too damn small...

My frickin' motherboard has only two fan headers. I have a total of 5 fans and a water pump ... the pump and the two radiator fans are powered off the motherboard, but i'd rather not have the other 3 fans run at full tilt all the time, so I just bought this for my new case: http://www.thermaltakeusa.com/Cooler/Coo...design.htm

As I said in the other thread, I've been looking for a new case for almost two years now and specifically a cube case with USB 3.0 ports and plenty of airflow. This thing is all of that and more. It's also apparently fucking huge..... the shipping box larger than one of those tall dorm fridges. :eek:

:lol: It may as well be, my POST screen says "SATA bug fixed" ... that puts it at Q2 2011 at the earliest.

That said, the H110i Pro mini-ITX boards I used for my last build also have only two fan headers. Thankfully I only needed two (one for the Water 3.0 Performer C pump, and the other for the 120mm fan on the radiator), but that's definitely something to watch out for in the future.

Just bit on a Thermalright TRUE Spirit 140 Power to replace my almost NINE year old TRUE 120...

I've been going back and forth on either getting the above, or an AIO watercooler like the Corsair H100x or Thermaltake equivalent, but in the end the price and performance of the chunk of metal won me over. That and the fact that the original TRUE 120 has been such a good friend to me over almost a DECADE. It has been with me through so many socket iterations it's crazy.... all the way back to Socket 775, and it's been a beast every single time.

From the numbers I've seen an AIO water setup with a 240mm rad would have netted me maybe 2 or 3 degrees lower load temperatures over the TRUE 140 and to me that's just not worth the hassle of mounting a rad and waterblock/pump. Yeah, there's the whole cool factor of showing off a watercooled CPU.... but hey a big chunk of fan cooled nickel plated copper is pretty badass looking too. Big Grin
