    Not got it yet, but after watching the WWDC Keynote, I told the wife my next Mac Pro would probably cost over 30 grand.

    She said if I spent that on a computer we’d be getting a divorce.....

    ...... Anybody know when the pre-orders start? :P

    Won a ebay auction for a brown Japanese DSI LL for $10 shipped. From what the listing said, it works but its scuffed on the bottom and there's stickers on it. Will be taking it apart to clean any maybe paint, not sure yet

    I forgot
    Well, got this on Tuesday and it's been kind of a shit experience so far lol. Specs of the thing weren't bad, had an i5 4300U, 8GB of RAM, and a 128GB mSATA SSD, which for $60 is a great deal. But it's got problems :lol:

    First, the BIOS had a Supervisor password on it. Since it's Toshiba, who's apparently really good at securing their hardware, it's impossible to clear this BIOS password for the most part, cuz it's stored on the EEPROM with the BIOS and then on another chip as well (and there's no CMOS to clear, that I can see on the mobo anyways). It could probably be cleared by flashing a clean BIOS dump to the EEPROM, but I have neither the tools nor the BIOS dump to even flash it so that's dead.

    Unfortunately, because of these things, I couldn't boot from the SSD (since the HDD/SSD password), and I couldn't boot directly via USB as the boot menu was disabled. So I pulled the 64GB mSATA SSD from my dead Surface Pro 2, plugged that in...and found that Legacy boot was enabled, so no UEFI, and USB booting was last in the boot priority, apparently, with Network boot enabled and in a higher priority. So it'd just keep resetting the network boot and wouldn't boot from USB at all when an SSD was plugged in. So I setup Serva, and was finally able to successfully install Windows 10 via network install, slapped another 4GB stick of DDR3 in it to bring it up to 12GB, and everything was all fine and peachy. It was pretty quick, thanks to the SSD, had excellent cooling despite it's teeny cooler (stayed a frosty 66C when running Cinebench, with 4 threads running at 2.6GHz stable), and was pretty quiet...

    Until about 12 hours later, when it shat itself and now refuses to post :lol:

    So, tl;dr, I ordered a replacement motherboard for this laptop series, which is identical hardware except for the CPU which is an i7 4600U, and (assuming the listing was correct) has no BIOS password.

    Ordered a midnight blue PS4 controller on Amazon it was on sale because PlayStation days of play sale.

    Not that I needed it. I usually really take care of my controllers. In 25 plus years of playing video games I think I've only had two controllers that are broken. One of them was a Microsoft Sidewinder controller Cable became Frayed right where it enters the controller. The second one I believe was a used PS2 controller.


    So now with this one I'll have 5 PS4 controllers. I have an original black one, original camo( AKA The Cow controller according to my nephew's), one of the new black controllers, a sexy silver one and now the midnight blue.


    I did have a wave blue controller, I traded it in with my PS4 when I was upgrading to a pro. The reason why I trade the blue one in was because the original black one has been modified

    I collect real guns. Debating picking up a 10/22 takedown this weekend, and maybe get a "cheap" silencer (Silencer can be $100, but the tax stamp is always $200. Grr.) so I can plink in the woods without bothering the neighbors down the road - and take care of these darn chipmunks and squirrels that keep digging holes along the foundation, making water run in easier.

    The dark cookies, I left them on the top rack a bit longer than needed. Pretty dry. Nothing a bit of milk can’t fix.
