Applauds for having Opeth in the screenshot.
No AUX port, no BT and a Cassette Deck? Depending on how much time you spend in the car you might just want to replace the whole stereo ... I think there's some head units with BT that are around $150 though who knows what sort of hoops you'd need to jump through to get it installed.
@admiralperpetual Probably not though the 680 even at 1920x1080 can't play games at max settings or without stutters. My tick/tock cycle is 3-4 years so a 980ti would in theory would be in use for awhile. That said I'll probably just spend the money instead on LEGO or, you know, bills.
@simian: (unless you're made of money) are you really doing anything that would be improved that much? I have a gtx 670 and I feel like it would be better to wait for the next series of cards to come out, thinking of all the 780ti owners.. remember, the 9xx series is only 2 generations ahead not 3 ;)
I was thinking about replacing my aging GTX 680 with a 980 but now that this is out... Hrm...
After 3-4 years of HEAVY purchasing I've run out of storage room so I'm transitioning to mostly digital. Unless it's someone I love dearly (Hickman, Fraction, Wood, etc) I'm slowly reducing my pull list at my LCS and moving to digital for new series. The dollar ratio between physical/digital has gone from $80/$10 a week to $30/$20 ... It also helps that I'm culling a lot of the series as well.
Voxel Maker looks interesting enough if only to make voxely avatars for various profile pictures.
Lego Lego Leeeeegooooo.
I've been a standalone LR user for awhile but with the ugprade fee being $79 I'm probably going to switch to CC instead going forward on LR6. Who knows maybe it'll be like a gym pass and guilt me into taking more pictures.
Yay a DAC article!
@patricknorton on a tangent do you have any recommendations for a portable DAC like the Sound Blaster E5?
I bought an N6 off contract in January but recently Rogers has been offering an marginal incentive to switch from my old iPhone plan (6GB for $70 a month) to one of their sharetab plans but with 8GB a month (though for $40+ more). The story I've heard is that Rogers will be incrementing the price of my plan quarterly until it hits $100/month so I might just pull the trigger and get some better data / voice perks with a new phone.
Not to be knit-picky but I almost started to yell at the screen when Norm didn't attach the hook to the canon on the back of the snowspeeder.
Video is working now but hearing praise for the Divergent series makes me wish this had become a lost episode. That series (book + movie) are so so soooooooo bad.
Hrm... The window for the video isn't showing up...
Fresh Off the Boat was beyond terrible that I could barely make it through the first episode but then again I think all of ABC's Comedies crap (apart from Better of Ted & Happy Endings).
Damn 2/3 of the kits they previewed for this week are on my LEGO Store wishlist.
I wish that MotoMaker was available in Canada since right now the Moto X 2014 is only available through one carrier and has a pretty high markup. I picked up an N6 when it was available here but while it's nice enough the size is a bit too much for my everyday use.
$100 is a bit much but this would be nice to toss in a bag if you needed to do something off site but don't necessarily want to bring a laptop.
@simian: It seems to me you have an excellent plan, and hopefully it works out for you (i.e. you don't get kicked in the junk). I think you're going to like that Birds kit, and it does make a good couples project. Besides, one of the birds has a flower for cryin' out loud! That's romance right there.
@Nscafe: My Lego itch has been scratched for a couple of months now. I did the Birds and Tumbler along with a few smaller sets and a few for my daughter as well (Vet Clinic, Elsa's Ice Castle, and a few promotional sets). Plus, I recently finished a build at work (yes, I said at WORK) that the executive team wanted me to do as a display piece in the office. It is a model of the company logo with 17,000 bricks and is about 12' wide by 2' tall. Perhaps I'll start a thread with a few pictures so people can have a look.
@simian: those would be pretty complimentary, since the mk2 is basically a 6d!
@simian: Not sure if you've made a purchase yet, but I can say that the Tumbler is a really enjoyable set to build. Just finished it last week and it was great. Lots of interesting angles and connections to make, some cool details inside the cockpit... and oh my, those tires are wonderful! I would also recommend the Birds set for another great build (though smaller and a little faster than the bigger sets of course). They're a really interesting design and look great when they're finished.
Whatever you get, enjoy!
@simian: It's a nice set. :)
