    Black Forest Gummy Bears - So Soft, So Supple - you know you love them - $8 for 6lbs.

    I don't mind their organic ones, but I don't really care for their standard ones. And yes they do taste different and no it's not my imagination. The ingredients list is generally different.

    What's absolutely retarded is that I'm pretty sure my order came first. But you know what at this point I kind of expect this from this company. Price you pay for good deals, apparently 100% of them will be unusable for people with bad luck, like me.

    Mine is in backorder status according to my account's page. Great. Guess I'll have to call them tomorrow. I'm kind of about to say that it's seriously not worth the trouble at this point.

    Randomly looked and saw that they had more of the 6510 from earlier for the same price (56 bucks). Just ordered it again. Hopefully this time it'll actually go through.

    Bah, the lowest price color laser printer that I see on there now is like 3x the price of the one I was considering. Guess I just won't print. Really rotten luck with this whole ordeal.

    Well frankly I don't know how things worked with this company. I didn't know the sales rep was going to be useless. I kind of just assumed that they had some reasonable hierarchy and distribution of duties... Well, any more good laser printer deals pop up? That was a high resolution printer...

    Okay. So today I tried calling that woman again. No response as usual. Look up order number on that link. Cancelled. Great. Ignored my email, didn't tell me anything, and then just silently cancelled my order. Just amazing. To top it all off, that printer is discontinued now, so I can't even...

    So how are you supposed to check order status? I checked out as a guest, got an order ready message, and received an emailed order confirmation. Then they called me telling me the credit card has been declined. I realized that this one had a specific billing address that was different from the...

    Well generally I don't think people do chargebacks unless they're willing to literally stop dealing with a company entirely. Because most companies I think ban you if you do something like that. For me this is low risk because this is the only thing I've ordered from these people to begin with...

    Came to 89$ total after tax and shipping. I billed it on my credit card. If it comes in messed up or something, I'll probably do a chargeback if they don't take care of me.

    I wonder if I could force them to make it signed. That way they literally can't just drop it off. They'd need my signature. At 55$ this was a great deal, but the shipping is going to be like 26$ for it. Which is still good when considering it's a laser color printer... but makes it a tad more...

    It's on Amazon as well and per the Q&A section looks like it comes with toner: I think I'll just chance it... tomorrow lol.

    CDW Outlet Finds

    I like this deal. Does it include toner, though? After getting burned on all in ones, I think I would prefer some some modularity anyway. At 56$, that's a pretty good deal for a color laser printer (at least that's what I think this is?). I'd prefer not to buy the toner though, as that could be...

    Any good deals on laser printers? My Dell 2825cdn is dead. Prefer not to put another laser printer on 150$ "rental".

    HOT ! Various 1TB NVMe with coveted E12 Controller $135 aprox retail

    In-store, the local store next to me had like 18 of them in stock when I went to grab mine. Well, 17 now that I took one of them. Still, a lot. Not a bad deal, it's faster than my current boot drive, so I shoved some games onto it. My benchmark gave me around 2.7-2.9gb/s on both read and write...

    Normally I wouldn't invest in this, but 1TB for 100$ is good enough for me to try it I guess.

    HOT - Dell S2825cdn Multifunction Color Laser Printer $150 shipped!

    So I'm going to go ahead and post my bad ending to this deal, although this is a bit of a necro at this point. I got this error code very suddenly when trying to scan something: 062-380 I will note that this printer came with (something that I didn't know until a tad after warranty because I...

    Logitech M185 and Other Mice are Vulnerable to Keystroke Injection

    I can tell you that I don't like wires simply because I hate any form of pull or resistance when I'm using the mouse. Lighter, braided cables have fixed this to an extent and I can deal with it, but it's just hassle to adjust the area so that the cord is completely "frictionless" (ie not there)...

    Samsung 860 evo 1 TB 134.99 @ Microcenter - Instore pickup

    Hmmm... I was considering one of these for my "new" (RMA'd 1080 lol) guest/bedroom mATX setup but... eh. I just couldn't really justify actually shelling out that much money for 1TB of space, where most I would need about 500GB for a pretty decent rotating collection of games and pretty much...

    Do you use all the motherboard standoffs in your build?

    Normally I would, for various reasons, but these B85 MicroATX boards are weird. They have this extra screw hole that I have yet to find a single case with a corresponding hole for... I don't understand at all, frankly. Long story short, though, if I can, I will. If I can't, I won't really sweat it.

    Holy crap, it worked! Dead video card, resurrected!

    I wonder if it would be better to just get a large stainless steel pot with a lid and then put the items inside of it. That way the fumes should be trapped (?).

    Holy crap, it worked! Dead video card, resurrected!

    Oh, does it release some noxious fumes that stick around in the cooking element? I wanted to try this with an old GPU or two, but if it does something like that I guess it's not a good idea.

    GPU fried, anything I can do?

    Okay, I missed a few of their emails because they kept going to trash, but just want to report that since Gigabyte didn't have any more 980Ti's they chose to simply upgrade my 980Ti to a 1080. I just received the 1080. GPU-Z reports the right GPU. I'm a tad dubious about it actually being new...

    Kingston A400 SSD 120GB SSD - $17.99

    I picked up the 240gb myself yesterday. I think it ships a bit sooner than the 120gb as well. Definitely on the low scale for $/GB, though I'm not sure about the quality of the underlying NAND. At least it's an SSD either way, and it's not some TEAMCHINA brand.

    Swiss Gear Backpacks @ Buydig

    That must be some crazy harsh use. I've had a Swiss gear backpack for... I don't know how many years now. It's been 7-8+ probably. Daily use throughout college, obviously. Has some wear and tear (bit of peel on that bottom plastic part), but it's still going quite strong. Only really noticeable...

    Intel Xeon W-3175X Is the Fastest Workstation Processor on the Market

    Depends, for parallelizable tasks that can be efficiently sharded and distributed among multiple machines (which is a lot of things these days), yeah buying more machines is superior. However there's going to be network and other types of overhead. Factors which the developers of said software...

    Anker PowerCore 13000, Compact - $30

    GPU fried, anything I can do?

    I got a random UPS Quantum prepaid label in the email earlier today, going to Gigabyte. There was like 0 communication back to me, but I'm guessing this is for me to return my replacement for another one, since it references my case number... o_0 These people operate like ninjas, no...

    GPU fried, anything I can do?

    Well no I've already bought a 2080 to replace it like I said, but the only thing is that I am now empirically realizing just how stupid I was for choosing Gigabyte for it. I should have paid more for anyone else, considering this is the kind of warranty support I can expect. But yeah I sent...

    Nintendo Switch Outsells All Other Current Generation Consoles

    I bought a Switch recently. I like it fine. Pokemon Let's Go is a bit disappointing in some ways, but mainly the reason I got it was--and this is something that doesn't seem to be mentioned in this thread--because of Sony's latest censorship brigade. I buy a lot of Neptunia and anime themed...

    Kay well, here's the progress. I sent it back to Gigabyte. They sent me back a "fixed" GPU. Yeah, I guess it's better than the original. It displays a test pattern on the DVI port. And nothing else. Not even the LED on the side lights up past about 3 seconds and the computer doesn't even post...

    Mozilla CEO: Microsoft's Adoption of Chromium Is "Terrible" for the Web

    Monoprice PlayStation Vita Brushed Aluminum Clamshell Protective Case - 39 cents

Edit: Price is about 3.29 for both of them with shipping. I kind of expected the shipping to be most of the cost, but it's kind of silly how...

    FTC Will Investigate Loot Boxes

    And you can argue that, but on their (them being the person you started this argument with) part I'm simply saying that it's kind of a diversionary issue. It never needed such a strong definition in order to be regulated against and have rules imposed upon it. That is regardless of the outcome...
