Re: Which hair dryer do you use?

I just get down on my knees and peer into the clothes dryer for 10-15 minutes on delicate. It gets a little uncomfortable, so remember to bring some earplugs and a good book.

Re: What are you listening to RIGHT NOW?

Listening to my absolute favourite album of all time: Days of Future Passed, by the Moody Blues. It's just as spellbinding now as it was a thousand listens ago.

Re: Technology purchasing and "moments of weakness"

Hah, wait till you see the flat earthers audiophiles claiming using different filesystems in a PC can somehow affect sound quality. Hey, don't knock it. I still have a FAT32 WinXP partition for this very reason. Less filesystem overhead = less jitter, which makes my '60s mono albums sound warmer an...

Re: Technology purchasing and "moments of weakness"

I plunked down $7500 for a 37" Sharp LCD TV back in 2003. It all happened so fast. I saw a super cool, 2-inch thick TV displaying random nature scenes in HD. Suddenly, my credit card was lying dead on the floor. I could've taken home a 34" HD CRT with far better motion resolution and contr...

Re: Air conditioning: Dual-zone mini split vs two portable units

Jesus. I think I’m paying around $65 a month to run a 15 year old Carrier central AC. But it’s Canada, so I guess you could say I’m paying $65 a year for air conditioning. :P Well, that's just about what I'd pay for a month myself but, like you, I don't have to run it all that often. I was just sur...

Re: Air conditioning: Dual-zone mini split vs two portable units

Just got the weekly e-mail from the utility. If their numbers are right (and how would I disprove?), running both outlets of a 30K BTU Mitsu split for a week of 95F/70F temps (at 65F/68F thermostat settings) cost me all of an extra $13, and that's at $0.1484/kWh. I knew they were efficient, but day...

Re: Am I bottlenecked?

I have a similar system. 4770K @ 4.3, Z87, 16GB 2133. Doesn't seem to be limiting my overclocked 1070 at all.

Re: How Apple Dethroned Intel As the World's Most Innovative Chipmaker

I'm giving Apple the benefit of the doubt. Intel hasn't significantly increased single core performance in years. I've been nothing but impressed with just how fast the latest round of iDevices feel. Even full desktop sites render just as quickly on an iPhone as they do on a Kaby Lake laptop. It's ...
