Re: Show us your latest purchase - Winter 2019

Trying a faster motor for the RC truck... This is for my slower one, so will be interesting to see what it is like now. https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0024/8617/3749/products/dynamite_13t_550_brushed_motor_dyns1213_grande.jpg Because RC Cars break https://cdn3.arrma-rc.com/assets/images/W4P4PQ9U3...

Re: Fleeting/Random/Thoughts

Well done!
I know that at a point it becomes too much, but you have got through the hardest part IMO.

Hopefully you feel a lot better once it is all clean :)

Re: Show us your latest purchase - Winter 2019

Haha, yeah it was a build they had on Jaycar and had it at 40% off if you bought everything together.
Thought it was something to start with, might try more things and get myself back into coding afterwards

Re: Fleeting/Random/Thoughts

I love my Nokia... runs stock Android and gets all the updates along with the Pixels.
Mine is the older model (Original Nokia 8), but I have had no issues at all with it. Also doesn't have the stupid fucking curved screen!!!

My only current conundrum is do I wait for the non-blower style coolers that should be out soon, or just do my tax return and buy a blower style now...

The new AMD GPU's are looking very tempting for me... not that concerned with the "supers"
Thinking about a CPU upgrade, but I haven't noticed my current Ryzen 1600X struggling with anything, so not seeing a reason just yet.

I have lived in this rental for 3 years and still have a couple of keys that don't appear to open anything... I'm sure they do... I'm just not sure what.

Re: Game Deals, Sales & Specials!

Same deal on Steam currently, and if you own stuff it cuts the package back and makes it cheaper.
I had a look and it would be less than $5 AUD for me to get the rest of the collection I don't own

Re: Show us your latest purchase - Winter 2019

I think I have a similar monitor Mugsy, thought mine was BW2240 (or similar)... Think it is 11 or 12 years old though...
Also purchased 4 more wheels for the RC car...

If anyone is having issues with this through the client (Issue with it only allowing you to gift it not purchase for $0) then go to the web page and add it to your account from there. No issues doing it that way.

Haha, every government department has a different definition of that.
I'm not "government" enough to help though, water corps are technically "private" with government loans, so our grades are slightly different

I may have crashed it harder than I thought, as one of the front suspension arms has broken and come out of its mounting. Seems to be all holding together fine, just the wheels a...
