    Hot: GE Full Spectrum Par 38 Grow Light

    I dont intend to use this for growing, just starting. But youre right, the area it covers is tiny. Thankfully, the seed starters fit into the cone. But in hindsight, I should have gone with 2 foot fixtures and attached them to the shelves in my green hours. The plants would have pointed up...

    [H]OT Deal? DELL PowerEdge R610/R710 Servers sub $200? ($149-199)

    That too and the heat. But hey, if the goal is to get a small VM lab going to practice Xen or VMware, its a great way to get into some hardware for it. These are ridiculous for the purposes of a NAS. In fact, even the Dell T30 that was so popular a few years back is overkill. A synology with 5...

    [H]OT Deal? DELL PowerEdge R610/R710 Servers sub $200? ($149-199)

    Even still, man these things are whiny. What I really want is one of those tiny Dell tower servers that I can stuff an HBA card in and run FreeNas. Maybe even one of those HP Proliant microservers.

    Laptop 880m to 980M upgrade, is it worth it?

    The first problem you may have is that the heatsink for your current video card may not match up to the placement of RAM chips and Core of the new card. The second problem you may run into is the EC of the laptop may need to have its firmware modified to even boot that card. Third, you may need...

    What were your top smartphones of 2010-2019?

    Out of all the phones I had, the top? Nokia Lumia 950. It was and probably still is the most innovative phone(s) of the decade after the iPhone. It should have pushed the next wave of devices and how we interact with them but Billy boy drop the ball. We had a few Android phones and my wife had...

    ASUS Zenfone 6

    Band 66 is just an expansion of band 12. So not having it isn't a big deal. Band 12 is the primary band used for extra range and penetration. Band 71 is just slightly lower frequency than that. Not all phone have it and not all areas rolled it out yet. Band 4 is the main band that most phones...

    Ryzen 3700x $280 - Microcenter

    Ryzen 5 3600 is 180. Now that's tempting. I spent all last year waiting for this and can't make a case for getting it. I have no time to play games and all I use a computer for these days is office tasks.

    JBL 530 Speakers - $299

    I figure it would produce less strain on the individual amps and hopefully distort less at higher volume levels. Plus. If it's there. Why not use it. Cost me a bit of wire. Meanwhile, I got the sub. It's a nice friggin sub. I forgot the last time I had a sealed sub and I forgot how much better...

    JBL Studio 590 Floorstanding Speakers $439 each

    Silly tempting but i wish I had the space. They are 50 high by 16 deep. I sprung for the 530s and a 520c center. I only need 3.1 channels. Anything to upgrade my aging sonys.

    NuVision 12.5" Laptop - N3350, 4GB RAM, 64GB eMMc, QHD 1440p - $99 in-store+$19 ship at Micro Center

    Man thats tempting for 100 bucks. I can think of an easy use case right off the bat. Educational programs for kids. A lot of them are on the Ipad these days, so i dont know whats available for windows, but I bet they are light enough for this machine. I was about to pick one up for myself to...

    JBL Studio 590 Floorstanding Speakers $439 each

    Really want a set of 530s. These 590's would look massive in my already cramped living room. In fact, at this point, given how much TV we actually watch, I want one of their 3.1 channel sound bars for half price.
