Great gaming abilities? Check. Good ‘out of the box’ color accuracy? Check.


If you are looking for a wireless headset that is feature rich, low priced and actually sounds like headsets worth 2x as much, check out the Turtle Beach Elite Atlas Aero Wireless.

  2. HAHA again congrats and Sorry xmas cleared out all my scotch tape so I need to keep the Canadian Spirit alive with using up all our duct tape before getting more normal tape. Plus some might say I chromed the box so win win Hope you enjoy both items and thanks for posting you got it. Have an awesome week
  3. Hey all just wanted to say thanks again for the graphics card and gaming mouse I won in the giveaway. It just arrived today. Soulless you are definitely helping keep the duct tape business alive and thriving!
  4. Damn that looks awesome very well done Might steal this idea during next round of renos
  5. Hey that is cool. Recently I used vinyl plank to add backsplash in our kitchen. I thought I was the only one to put flooring on the wall
  6. Yesterday
  7. Now time to move the desk and do the lower half as well as the GPU rail haha After all the wood is up have to do trim around the tops and side, most likely going to cut the same flooring at 2 45s and do triangle trim around the sides. A good perk to this is I can hide a cable along the sides and run it to my key lights on the roof. But if I find another simpler solution I'll go with that, going to take my monitors odd the wall mounts to, one will be desk mounted the other stand for now.
  8. gpus and there will be something really cool for testing hardware on the wall soon to the wall to the right haha and thanks
  9. Looks good gpus to go back on the ledge when done, or selling them off?
  10. Back at it again office updates for 2020 Before is above with GPUs and wall cleaned up Then the updates Now tomorrow since I ran out of wood today and just got more I finish the top of the wall, then do the lower half and back rail in the same wood. After that lights and do the right hand wall in painted peg board
  11. Last week
  12. If you talk to a hundred video or photography professionals every single one will say the same thing: never trust your precious images/videos on the cards you shot them on. Get them off as soon as you can. Doing otherwise just invites Mr. Murphy to your photo/video shoot… and when Murphy shows up that ‘perfect’ shot will be the one to disappear. This is why some form of On Set Storage is in nearly every single professional’s equipment bag. The downside is to get the precious data off SD/QXD/etc. card as soon as possible requires a couple more pieces of equipment. Namely a card reader and a laptop. Considering how much is in the typical pro’s bag already finding room for even more stuff is never easy. It sometimes means leaving a lens or three at home. LaCie obviously took feedback they received from industry professionals seriously and has created a solution for this rather niche problem: the $629(USD) LaCie Rugged BOSS SSD 1TB. BOSS stands for Backup On Set Solution… which is a touch kludgey turn of phrase but does get the point across. This one device is meant to be an all in one solution for on site (aka ‘on set’) backing up of a professional’s pictures, videos… and anything else on their cards. Furthermore, it promises to all this without the need of any other electronics device. The Rugged BOSS SSD is able to promise to do all this because it not only comes with 1TB of internal storage (in a fairly ‘rugged’ rubber enclosure) but also comes with a System on a Chip ‘computer’, an integrated LCD, am integrated USB hub and compatibility with everything from USB 2 to Thunderbolt 3 enabled devices. As it is basically an uber portable computer system it should come as no surprise that, unlike typical USB storage devices, the Rugged BOSS SSD has a built in battery and requires no external power source while on the set (or at least as long as the 5300mAh battery lasts that is). If all this does not sound like a great idea, and allow you to stop futzing with that homebrewed Raspberry Pi based BOSS type device you have been working for way too long already…. you probably are not the right person for this specific model. This is a model designed by professionals for professionals. This is not the typical mass produced, mass appeal model. That certainly makes it rather unique these days but do not be surprised if after reading more about it that it is not your cup of tea. Of course, the opposite may be true too. You may find yourself loving all the detail and TLC that went into this model. In either case, with that caveat taken care of let’s see what makes a BOSS… a LaCie BOSS.

  13. Tasted great and @Bond007 I make meals like this all the time ask @LPfan4ever used to have him over lots for them haha
  14. Earlier
  15. Are you still selling Strix GTX1070 Gaming Single 8 pin $230 with Packaging obo ?
  16. Made this tonight really liked it so thought I would share above is the end product and I will explain at the end my additions and westernization that makes it pretty damn good. Here is the recipe I started with Takes. 30 minutes of active prep. 6 to 12 hours refrigeration. Approximately 2 1/4 hours to smoke. Special tools. Disposable aluminum roasting pan. Serve with. Pinot Noir or Merlot. Ingredients 1 whole duck (approximately 5 pounds) 1/4 cup soy sauce 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar 1 tablespoon honey 1/2 teaspoon Morton’s coarse kosher salt per pound of meat (learn more about the science of salt here) 1 teaspoon baking powder Mandarin pancakes Hoisin sauce 6 scallions, thinly sliced About the rice vinegar. This is less strong, about 4% acetic acid, than most commercial white vinegars or even cider vinegar, which are often 6% or more. Most good groceries sell it as either plain or seasoned. Get the plain. If you must use white vinegar or cider vinegar, add a couple of tablespoons more water. About the baking powder. Seasoning duck with a combination of baking powder and salt is a technique inspired by J. Kenji Lopez-Alt of SeriousEats.com. The mixture not only helps draw additional moisture from the duck but also raises the pH level, thereby ensuring evenly browned and crispy skin during the roasting process. About the Mandarin pancakes. Sometimes labeled moo shu pancakes or Chinese pancakes, these small, thin pancakes are available at most international grocery stores. Alternatively, there are countless recipes for home made pancakes including this one from Nigella.com. About the Hoisin sauce. This thick sweet and salty sauce is a common glaze and dipping sauce in Chinese cuisine. It can be found in the international section of most major grocery stores. Method 1) Prep. Remove the giblets, neck, and sauce packet from the duck’s cavity. 2) Starting on the cavity side, gently work your fingers under the skin to separate the skin and flesh. 3) Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Set the duck on a rack in the sink and ladle the hot water over the duck to tighten the skin, flipping it halfway through the process. 4) Prick the skin of the duck all over with the tip of a paring knife or metal skewer to help the fat drain more easily. 5) Combine the soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, and honey in a microwave safe bowl and microwave on high for 15 seconds to liquefy the honey. Stir well to combine the ingredients. Brush the mixture all over the duck. 6) Combine the salt and baking powder in a small bowl. Mix well and sprinkle the mixture over the entire duck. 7) Refrigerate the duck uncovered on an elevated rack for at least six hours and up to overnight so that the skin can air dry. Where I change things The original is smoked and it's -40 outside so unless a lost toe and ear is worth duck which to me it is not lets switch this to the oven Set oven to 350 for 30 minutes with duck in a roasting pan without a grate, but no top, after 30 min drain a little grease about 3 tsp and then set the oven to 325 and cook for about 1-2 hours mattering size checking the breast every 30 min to get a temp between 160-170 no hotter or it will be dry. Now while it is cooking I used this recipe start to finish to make the mandarin pancakes super simple and turn out great 8 oz. (1-3/4 cups) unbleached, all-purpose flour, 3/4 cup boiling water 1 Tbs. toasted sesame oil boil the water and in a bowl mix the boiled water and flour together till evenly mixed put the flour and water mixture on a lightly floured counter or cutting board, need it for about a minute with your hands make it into a ball, cover it in a towel for 30 minutes after 30 minutes knead the mix a few times till it is evenly mixed then with your hands roll it out into a long snake like I know you did as a child with play doh, make it about 12" long, once that is done cut 1" pucks out of the snake of dough and you should get 12 of them. then flatten out each of the dough pucks till they are around 2-3" each cover one side of each of them with the oil using a brush put 2 piece of dough together with the oil sides facing each other then roll them out with a rolling pin till they are 5-6" round each then heat a non oiled pan on medium high and toss them in 1 sandwich at a time, when they get lightly browned on the points touching the pan (about 30 seconds) flip them, another 30 seconds then you should remove your first sandwich and be able to peel them apart put the done warm ones into tin foil and start on the next ones. all done that part With set aside grease dump it in a pan and set it to medium high, get veggies of your choice I used red onions, peppers and normal onions a tsp flour, some salt and pepper tossed them together then when the grease is spurting hot throw the veggies in to cook for a few min till soft now time to serve it all up following is photos of me making and finishing it
  17. Ah. I never even thought of asking. Live and learn. Got a 3220 for $15 shipped, so as long as it actually works I am not out much.
  18. No bond no I have a whole book of I3 2120 i would of just gave you one haha. Keep us posted on full specs as it's built
  19. A while ago I bought an HP SFF PC cheap because it was a great deal (actually 3...one for my TV, one for my grandparents, and this one). I stripped this one of its 2x4gb ram and 3770 to add to/upgrade my main desktop. Since that time it has been sitting in my storage room. Apparently it needs to be removed from the storage room. Time to piece together a basic box to sell in order to recoup some $. Pretty slim pickings in my PC spare parts department (compared to some of you), however I have 2x2gb ram and an intel 120gb ssd that are both collecting dust and likely never to be used again, so they are perfect. Off to ebay (which I honestly rarely ever use), and I am getting a cheap i3 to fill the last piece of the puzzle. If I was keeping it I would have opted for an i5 (just because), however i3 are dirt cheap by the nature of everyone upgrading away from them. Also, it will be perfectly fine for a basic box. Once I get the i3 it should be a great general purpose browsing box. Fingers crossed it goes together without a hitch, and that I can then find a buyer. To be continued...
  20. Well...I will have to find some time for a few videos.
  21. ok it does not like this card haha First MSI Then bench Now some EVGA on EVGA action or lack there of This card is umm not a EVGA fan, it's the EVGA black sheep, all it wants to be is MSI but EVGA just would not let it go without EVGA branding
  22. That is weird, I wouldn't think the cold would be an issue. Makes me wanna try.
  23. mine has crashed about 6 times, trying again now that the heater works at work, maybe running a 1070 at -20 is not a good idea haha.
  24. Na got busy with shipping and and posting videos haha, will run it on a 1070 at work though for fun today in a hour or so and post it for you haha
