having proper SSDs as external drives is great. I have an enclosure but for a NVMe drive and use it over USB as a portable Linux boot drive on my Steamdeck or whatever computer I want to run Linux on.
external would be pretty good size for transfer bunch of movies or something, bring over a show to binge watch somewhere etc. edit: also dont have to worry as much if you drop it or something for in transport
internal idk, scratch drive i guess or games but old games already load fast and new games are huge so wouldnt hold that many that would really need the speedup
Already have one of those too. My old 250GB NVMe is in a Sabrent enclosure but I need to properly wipe it with gparted some day cause last time I plugged it into my PC with all the data still on it (Windows 10, drivers, software, etc) it caused my PC to blackscreen.
Nah, maybe replacing my 3TB HDD that only has under 200GB of files on it. Wanted to replace that one for some time but couldn’t justify buying another 8TB ext drive for shucking
whys only 200gb using for temp storage on stuff you ripping or somethin?
Moleskine Pro Weekly Vertical Diary/Planner (DIN A5)
Leuchtturm1917 Notebook Hardcover Dotted Pacific Green (B5)
Some Leuchtturm1917 Pen Loop XL
And a couple Schneider Take4
Work doesn’t give out mechanical keyboards but IT said I’m welcome to bring my own. Wanted one with MX Brown switches but couldn’t find one that I liked. So I bought myself a new one with different switches for at home and I’ll use my current one at work (Corsair K95 Platinum).
New one: Corsair K100 (with Corsair OPX switches)
And while I could get a new mouse from IT (current ones are a wired Amazon Basics and a tiny wireless Logitech), my options are probably very limited. So I also bought my own…two actually cause I couldn’t decide which one would feel better ergonomically. One’s gonna be for work, one for at home.
SteelSeries Rival 3 Wireless
Corsair Katar Pro Wireless
I’m also gonna bring a mouse mat and a wrist rest to work.
got bunch of n64 shiz since i got a second one locally at a thrift store, so far 3 super pad 64 controllers, 2 of the color ones(blue seethru) and a grey performance one, a memory pack, a tremor pack, and a power pack+(think has memory built in and the rumble with a switch to select which mode)
ordered a super pad with the 2 prong instead of 3 cause has good joystick, 2 more tremor packs, a memory expansion and a oem power supply that supposedly works but either way a regular one so i can replace the psu with a board some people make that uses like a laptop power supply to plug to that
also hogwarts game, some more weights idk
Diablo 3 - Sword of Justice (Hardcover Comic)
The Art of Diablo (Hardcover Art Book, duh)
The Art of Diablo Volume II (Hardcover Art Book, pre-order)
Diablo: Tales from the Horadric Library (Embossed Hardcover Short Story Collection, in German)
And I sent the Corsair Katar back and got a Logitech G305 instead.
The Steel Series Rival 3 is now at work (together with my Corsair K95 Platinum) and the Logitech G305 replaces the cheapo CSL wireless mouse on my laptop at home. The Corsair K100 is super comfy, btw (but hella expensive. good thing my new job pays well).
Ordered some framed pictures from an online store that had 50% off on everything, so I saved quite a lot (especially on the one called Birth of the Nephalem which costs over 200€ by itself on the Blizzard Gear Store…and I paid even less than that for all three).
Diablo 4 Lilith (87 x 52 cm)
Diablo 4 Birth of the Nephalem (60,4 x 30 cm)
Diablo 4 Tree of Origins (55 x 34 cm)
Also ordered a new phone. Felt like it’s time for one that actually gets security updates and isn’t stuck in Feb 2021).
Google Pixel 7A
Spigen Tough Armor case
(Couldn’t care less about the little kick stand but it’s similar to my Tudia case that I have on my RP2 and that one is more rugged than the Spigen Liquid that I have for it too)
Anker SoundCore Liberty 4 NC
Got them for different reasons:
- The cable of my Tin T2 got in the way a lot.
- Having to carry my Qudelix 5K in my pants pocket meant that there’s always the risk of something pressing against the audio jack or bend the cable where the cable bend protection ends. And I think either of those two made the sound on the left ear bud get lower in volume depending on how I was standing.
Things that are a concern to me with the TWS ear buds:
- Losing any of the 3 parts (2x ear buds, 1x charging case) sucks and can even make them useless (like with a lost case → no charging).
- Audio Quality was a concern for me and there is less treble and more bass but overall they’re actually pretty good.
- Long-term battery life. Every time you put the ear pods in the case they’re being charged automatically. I’ll see how long it takes until the max capacity decreases.
The Adaptive Noise Cancelling is actually pretty good. And it’s also really nice that there’s no wire. I can walk through the whole apartment with my phone on my desk and the reception stays stable.
bunch ‘retro’ game shiz ps2 games, the fmcb and a memory card flash cart, and a cable showin up eventually for hooking up my first party network adapter to use sata instead of ide(has like a back plane with ide on it thats just a ribbon cable to the main board part of the network adapter some people made up that ribbon cable to a back plane board with a ide to sata converter thing on it), couple blue lake controllers pretty good feels good like no flex or nothin just its shiny/little bit slippy but the shape works fine even if its sweaty, has nice texture on buttons and stuff atleast, but the sticks are a bit quick/goes full speed fast
n64 flash cart gonna take ages to come in cause ordered direct from mr ukraine to save like 45$ then go thru amazon for same thing
Anker PowerPort Atom III Slim (2x USB-C, 2x USB-A, 65W max.)
Ordered some Blurays cause someone re-kindled my love for horror movies.
The Conjuring 1-3
And a band shirt
i got all the bernstain bers for 15$ and all the tmnt(the original cartoon) for 30 and some stuff to work on motorcycle some engine paint(just needed enamel to fix a small chip on tank and was the closest color) some clear, couple bolts so i can get different mirrors on
I got this 2.5 gigabit network switch (the one on the top) with 2 SFP+ 10G uplinks. it goes well with my other 7 network switches (I totally don’t have a problem)
Phixero SSD enclosure for the MX500 500GB that my mom gave me after we decided it’s better to get her a new laptop instead of upgrading her old one.
For anyone curious about the speeds: looks fine to me. Certainly better than a thumb drive.
That is about what I’d expect from the that SSD using SATA so not bad, though can we agree that the 6Gbps marked on the cable is just a blatant lie? there isn’t even a usb standard for that and it very much looks like a regular 3.1 gen1 cable.
As long as I don’t get USB 2.0 speeds I’m fine with it.
Danko Jones - Electric Sounds
The Curse of La Llorona
And some clothes…
Boss suit pants
Eterna red tie
Red Socks (Falke, Kashmir)
Simple black leather belt
Why? Cause the last time I had to wear something non-casual was at my school’s prom and that stuff doesn’t fit me anymore.
Company had its 50th anniversary and there was a dress code.
It was nice wearing that stuff cause it gave me a little self-esteem boost and the fabric felt good. But fuck those prices…RIP my wallet.
Some more scary moving pictures (bought, ordered and pre-ordered).
