My two recent purchases:
A 250GB Samsung 860 EVO SSD for OS.
An RPi4 to play with.
I made a similar thread a few years ago on a Swedish forum:
If you want to see what is bought in Sweden!
Not active there anymore! It’s a completely different forum focus. When I was active, the topics were more mixed. Now it’s more Apple!
Lenovo Thinkpad T430 second SSD caddy replaces DVD RW unit.
Now I have two Samsung 860 EVO SSDs. One for my wife’s Windows, one for my EndeavourOS Gnome install. Happy wife, happy life.
Olight M2R Pro Warrior flashlight in the limited Gunmetal Gray color.
Kind of a silly name - “Warrior” - and the “Deliberate Tactical Operation” referred to on the box is just marketing-speak for “it has a switch” but it’s a hell of a fine light.
I already had 2, one in black and one in tan. But I’m a sucker for gray - although this gray turned out to be far darker than I expected.
New gauge cluster for my 2013 Honda PCX.
and some fittings and the like for the kitchen I have been building. We now have a laundry area and a cooking area. We just need a sink and counter tops.
I think can also be because it has a sharp edge and therefore could conceivably be used as a weapon…
Ah yes, the deadly pointy bezel. Second only to a bayonet in lethality.
They’re actually referring to the tailcap switch, though. It’s momentary only - it doesn’t click on - so apparently that’s “tactical” as opposed to “useful.” (It’s also a 2-stage momentary, for 2 different light levels depending on how deep you press.)
Marketing is a science unto itself.
“Someone” made the mistake of visiting /r/fountainpens…
Unfortunately @jonathon I am worried about you. Those pens could be considered a dangerous weapon. After all, wasn’t it a British Police Unit that confiscated a spoon as a “dangerous weapon”?
Humor aside, I do like the pens. I miss writing with a fountain pen.
@Mr_Ecks If I could get one of those in Danish, it would be the perfect gift for one of my friends. Of course it would have to have Thai subtitles.
You can design your own, though I’m not entirely sure that they got Thai fonts. It’s probably enough if you got them on your computer.
I’ll PM you a link.
“Førsvind!” would look nice on a doormat!
That it would, and he would be chuffed to get it. We often bicker about stuff (politics mostly), but in the end, we go off and get a beer together. Ironic that.
I really like your sound system! What is it?
It’s a ‘bit’ old - Panasonic Technics introduction ‘halo’ system
I think I started putting it together in about 1977 - lots of pieces!
There was more - but the tuner/timer and hologram generator got parked! Here some wiki info on the setup
