    With the recent surge in used GPU prices again on eBay, I decided to sell off my 1070 that I had sitting in a box for some nice cash, and also have been buying and reselling RX 580s for some decent profit between Reddit and eBay (Because holy shit people are legit paying $400 for 580s on eBay right now :lol:)...

    So I decided to order an Oculus Quest 2. I've been wanting to get back into VR lately, but my current PC setup just doesn't have the room to accommodate the wired length my old Acer WMR headset I bought ages ago has, and the Quest is basically the only good alternative "wireless" headset right now (even though I hate the Facebook requirement :gun:) so figured I'd at least give it a try. Worst case I don't like it and it gets returned, best case it works well enough and I can enjoy VR without being limited to the tiny space my desktop is in.

    The full sized "The C64" is up as a backorder on Amazon right now, and since I missed it when it officially launched a few months back, I decided to put in my order now...but won't ship until April :lol:

    Bought some movies for my nephew's birthday gift, they are Toy story 4, the cgi Loin King and the newer Addams Family movie. All of them cost $6 each new.

    Bought Donut county, Forager and The Survivalists for ps4.

    Bought UV flashlight and a regular flashlight that use 18650 batteries. Bought the UV flashlight cause I always wanted to see my scorpions under it. So it will be fun for about 2 minutes, then it will probably never be used again.

    Ordered 2 wifi security cameras. 1 for my room, so I can keep an eye on all my tanks/ animals and 1 for my sister to use with her phone as a baby monitor.

    Also just got a message saying that I will soon be called to get my 1st covid shot and the vaccine center is about a block away from where I live.

    Won some auctions for a small collection of digital picture frames. Nothing super fancy, my wife just wanted something we could chuck pictures onto to display around the house so I went and just tossed a $10 bid at four random ones on Shopgoodwill, won them all for a total of $50ish :lol:

    The bigger you can get the aquarium the better for you. Mainly because smaller tanks means less fish and alot more water changes and as someone with a couple small aquariums, water changes are the downside of owning any aquarium. Also don't get a filter that's just the right size for the tank size. So let's say the tank is 20 gallon I would get a filter for a 40 or 50 gallon aquarium. The extra filtration will definitely help.

    Bravely Default 2, never played any game in the series and I do like it. Has an old school FF charm and the art style (esp. the towns) is something I like :P

    Too saucy for kids tbh.

    I have been mostly buying myself presents for my birthday tomorrow with present money I already received. Got an auto-ranging multimeter, an orange Underworld t-shirt from their limited Cowgirl range, and a Flip Grip for my Switch. More to come.
