I might actually have a reason to overclock my R9 390 again … Got a 4k HP Z24S monitor so. Sadly no freesync but oh well.
Is a 24" and the PPI is quite high but I actually like it. So many pixels lol.


So yeah, I got back into sim racing not too long ago and thought to myself that I will not go overboard with the sim rig like I usually do with my PC and other hobbies.

Well… I’m starting to go overboard again. lol

Waited a few months for this custom F1 style wheel, the extra 4.3" display, and I couples both displays with ZBlueSoftware for the dash and telemetry.

Hopefully in the near future, I can make a dedicated PC for sim racing so I can make a permanent sim racing cockpit fixture somewhere in the house; as you can see, I usually readjust the monitors and stuff around.

For any sim racer here that may be interested in getting themselves the same wheel, display, or something, you can visit: https://www.facebook.com/SpeedMaxRacing/ or at https://www.3drap.it/. For the dash and telemetry software: https://www.facebook.com/zBlueSoftware/ or http://z1simwheel.com/dashboard/index.cfm


Other than the bezels that is a really cool setup. You definitely play racing games the right way. Enjoy.


For $5.83 US I got myself 2 seasons for Dave Koch Baseball pc game. I got the 1887 season and the 1988 season was thrown as a freebie with purchase. I also added the 4 PCL leagues that are always free just to make sure I have copies for a lifetime.



Got really tired of my HTC U11 not having a 3.5mm jack. I have a few different earbuds that I like to switch between depending on what I’m doing or where I’m going, so I found that most of the time I would either accidentally leave the adapter at home so I had no way to use my earbuds while I was out, or I would leave the adapter in my work bag and then have to dig it out when I wanted to use my other earbuds that I would use at home.

I thought I’d get used to not having it, but that stupid adapter has cost me hours of lost media consumption. I’ve come to the conclusion that there’s no excuse not to have a 3.5mm jack. Samsung has one in all their phones and they still manage to make it resistant enough to fully submerge without damaging it. Seems like just another trend that Apple started in order to cut costs and now other companies are following it.

I was going to go for the LG V30, but my friend showed me his Note 8 and I just had to get one. It just felt so good in my hands, and I couldn’t wait to get one in my pants. I always used to think the pen was kind of a silly gimmick, and there is a tiny bit of latency that would deter me from using it for anything that needs to be really precise, but I really enjoy having it for notes and annotating pictures and screenshots. When I wake up and brilliant ideas start popping into my head, I can just pull the pen out and start writing without having to even unlock the phone.

Girlfriend went to the UK recently and got me some souvenirs.

“Cataclysm” lol

The best translations ever.

The whiskey supposedly is made specially for each clan. No clue whether that’s actually true, or they just slap a different label on the bottle. Still neat though.


The like I gave was for the World of Warcraft item. I still love that franchise even if I don’t play it anymore. I am really looking forward to seeing the next movie. I pray that it will be a sequel to the last one.


I’m almost there as well. I still get the urge to play all the time, but once I’m on I can’t figure out what to do because I usually get bored within half an hour. I’ve cancelled my subscription three times in the last few months, but I usually end up hopping back on in about a week lol.



Death's Hangover

I did a search for a review of this game on YouTube as I remembered Jim Sterling taking a look at this game and liking it. Death’s Hangover at 62 cents Canadian is a steal. It is an Arkanoid type game but with a story and bosses. You also get Steam cards which you of course can sell for coin. Included in this game is also a level editor which is neat. This game usually is over $5 Canadian. A nice hidden gem in the Halloween Steam Sale.


Starting my metal music collection



Layers of Fear Masterpiece Edition

A walking simulator mostly but graphically looks great. Oh and well this is actually 2 games and I got them for $6 and change Canadian from GamersGate during their Halloween Sale. I did get something or some things from the Steam Halloween Sale but can’t figure out now what that was.

Crysis 3 figure

$4 Canadian at Dollarama in the mall tonight had 6 or so and all the boxes were damaged just like the one I got. I don’t care though as keeping this one and maybe others and opening them up is fine by me. However I am going to look at the other stores in town and see if they have this item in good boxes so I can buy and try to flip them.


Got one of these to split my hdmi audio to put it into a proper sound system instead of the tin cans my TV calls speakers.

Love the shape, the styling, lighting options, and the sensor. Clicks feel great. Scroll wheel has a good amount of resistance. Will be my go-to for everything that isn’t WoW :stuck_out_tongue:

I LOVE extra goodies.


HE-400i and ModMic 5


Kent R7T

Bluecoil Aqua Lightning DAC (ended up returning the Note 8 and getting an iPhone 8+ 256GB in space grey because we get a stipend at work if we use an iPhone (boss wants us to all have iMessage, doesn’t want to use a 3rd party app or something like Hangouts, but hey, half my cell bill is paid for now so whatever)). The stock adapter that it comes with sucks, so I got this. It’s not like night and day, but it does give you a little bit fuller sound and I’m less likely to lose it.

KPTEC usb-c to HDMI + VGA + DVI + DP (need it for work)

Is anyone else having problems with pictures not fitting? These are the same picture. The top one is a 30% resize from the original size, and the bottom one is another 50% off of the 30%. In my browser, the top one is cut off just to the right of the Aqua box, and the bottom one is perfectly fine.



Yeah, the forum is being weird with some pictures. On mobile your two pictures are fine, but on desktop the top one is cutoff. The same thing is happening to me in the drink thread, some pictures imported fine, but the recent ones are being troublesome.


What I don’t like is in the music thread where the picture of the video / song does not show up.



I got the $1 tier as I really wanted Out of the Park Baseball 18.


I now have yet another baseball sim sitting in my backlog4life. I would be playing these way more but still need a CouchMaster or a laptop to play these on so I can really relax playing them.

I also got a free copy of Watch_Dogs from Ubisoft that is a limited time offer that you can still get as of now.

Vortex Core with Cherry MX Browns. Takes some getting used to, but I’m warming up to it pretty quick. I LOVE the overall feel and sound. The only complaint I have is it needs some taller feet on the top because it’s completely flat. Gonna order some 3rd party ones soon.

Glorious Gaming wrist rest. Surprisingly more comfortable than I thought. I thought it was just going to be kind of a knockoff brand following the master race hype, but I actually like it a lot more than my Grifiti one I had before. The padding is a little softer, it has a nice rubber base, and it’s stitched around the edges so it won’t fray (hopefully) like my other one did.
