    My new keyboard arrived.
    PIECE OF SHIT.
    It can't stay still. You can't have all four corners touch the desk at the same time.
    Accuratus UK? More like PIECE OF SHIT.
    Money down the drain.

    Looks like the stuff we ordered from AliExpress for the classroom/office, except ours are wireless and aren't warped. They look okay and they function and they also weren't expensive, but they really aren't particularly nice to use, about what you'd expect from a cheap laptop keyboard.

    Do they rattle and shake when you type on them?
    Because this POS does.
    25 pounds down the drain.
    How can anyone design a keyboard which can't stand still on a desk?

    They rattle just enough to feel cheap and they also flex a little. Here's a photo:

    Really sorry to hear this. I always hate buying anything and then being totally bummed by the lack of quality. I did pay much more for the one I got recently but it is a very sturdy and heavy piece of equipment.

    I don't know if it's just me who does things like this or not.
    I got this new camera (Sony DSC-W830) so that I can take the random photo when I am out.
    Now you might ask me why don't you use your smartphone for that? Well, the answer is that I rather keep the battery of it not touched if I don't have to. Now you might ask me why don't you use your compact camera you bought a couple of years ago which is very compact and superior to this one? (DSC-WX500)
    Well, I like the WX500 so much that I don't want to risk damaging or losing it so I keep it at home at all times.
    Let's just hope I don't end up liking the W830 so much that I end up getting one for the same reason.

    So I have been on vacation out in Calgary and arrived back home yesterday, it was fun coz my folks came all the way up from Botswana to be with my little brother and I (he lives in Alberta, I live in Saskatchewan). Now, I did get gifts of cash and my little bro even hooked me up with a new Samsung TV for my bedroom so now I am back to having two TVs in my home lol. And I did get myself some Adidas clothing. :)

    I don't usually post stuff like this (I did once for those who remember) but I just got this lovely piece and I had to share:-

    Nice! :)

    I almost bought a factory overclocked RX 480 8GB two days ago. :( I found a listing at a decent price, that was sitting there for almost two months, contacted the seller, we agreed on everything (I didn't negotiate the price, he agreed to a small demo to see that everything works) and then, just as I was leaving my home, me sent me a message apologizing a million times, saying that a buddy of his appeared out of the blue with a dead card, so he was giving the 480 to him. Darn it! I haven't seen the card resurface in a different ad, so it seems that I really just got unlucky.

    Man, that's just too bad! :(

    Hopefully you'll have better luck next time.

    So much for not getting a mechanical keyboard. :) That's a G413, right? I've tried it out in a store, 10/10 for the build quality, the looks and for being really nice and quiet. The keys felt a little heavy and the actuation distance is tangibly shorter than usual, so to me they felt kind of like a "premium rubber dome" design, there is an amount of force that you need to apply (almost) right away and once you beat the resistance, boom, the switch just "implodes" and bottoms out under the finger.

    The amp was delivered today... Sounds great and looks better than I expected. Now I gotta tweak it for better performance.

    awesome :)
    can’t believe you can still find stuff like that on eBay
    (I’ve completely abandoned the place. sold the same phone twice in one month, got scammed both times. more than had enough..)
