Not very exciting I know - but I use YouTube a lot and the amount of ads these days is just absurd. Managed to get a year of YouTube premium via interesting methods for £8.48 (11 USD) upfront for 12 months. :P

Yes I know about YouTube vanced etc. But I'd rather use the stock app which I use on a lot of devices including Android TV and it's just easier not having to worry about updating it, glitches, HD limits etc.

I brought an old iMac back home from work, it would be thrown out or disassembled/destroyed.
It's a last gen tray loader blueberry iMac, 333 Mhz with 265 MB of RAM (upgraded) and the stock HDD

Anyway some yobbo attacked it with a spray can and after some rubbing with iso alcohol, I managed to make the the biggest stripe on top of the iMac disappear.
Still have the sides and one speaker grille to do but I'm fairly confident I could get all those marks gone.


On a side note, a couple of hours after I brought it home I realised that I have the very same iMac that Peggy Hill has in King of the Hill.
As I'm a fan of the show, I think I might restore this thing to its former glory and upgrade the hardware, set a nice KOTH related wallpaper and use/show it whenever a conversation lands on the show haha.

I'd be interested in learning more about these interesting ways! That's definitely a price I'd be willing to pay to get rid of all the ads!

Where did you find stock?
I placed an order at digikey on 6th December and it arrived 12th January.

The order confirmation came with this comical under estimate

Due to extremely high order volumes your order may take 1-3 business days to ship.

Ordered this yesterday, should be here tomorrow. I've kinda wanted it for a long time now. It's the only season I'm interested in. It's obviously very dark, but I can't stop watching clips of it sometimes. I got the DVD version, so I can watch it on my computer (I tried fooling with bypassing whatever to be able to watch blu-rays on my PC with whatever, and I gave up). It's definitely not one of those things I foresee myself wanting to watch a lot, but I would like to finally see the whole season in its entirety. Don't have HBO; don't want HBO.

Just ordered 3 gameboy colors(2x purple and 1x clear purple) to fix up from J4U. I should get them next week. Probably going to install a ips screen in at least 1 or 2 of them and sell the 3rd. If I can get all 3 working. The amount I paid for the 3, I could have gotten 5 of them before the pandemic.

I did have a CFW'd Switch so who knows knows, but I genuinely liked the product. That's a purchase from me. (Also yes I eat my fingernails and my finger skin A LOT)
Now, this is the one that's kinda like Breath of the Wild in terms of visuals and mobility, right? If it's the same one I saw footage of, it definitely looks really fun and interesting, if not a little hard to come to grips with, considering it's still a mainline Pokemon game.
