Not in the parts listings. I went to add it to my next build list and it just isn't there. I've seen several threads to request it to be added to the parts listings, but it isn't there, yet.

I just bought that case, I'm looking forward to updating my rig into it. It's a shame it isn't listed on on PCPP yet.

I'd suggest most of Robert Heinlien's stuff, but his material is fairly "Adult". David Weber's collection of novels would do you well, as would Terry Pratchett.

I just bought a 3700x from Walmart for just under $200, (I'll be upgrading from a 2700x) . While I don't think that price listing is still available, Newegg had similar pricing until a couple days ago.

How well is the Scythe keeping your CPU cool? I made the mistake of swapping to a SFF AIO cooler and have actually had a couple of thermal throttling issues on my 2700x.

Gonna have to keep track of this topic, I used to love Lego when I was a kid (waaaaaaay back in the 70's) but I grew up and started buying more expensive toys.

Looks like mom will be out by Thursday (assuming all goes well), but that's still a week she's not happily at home. Dad is taking it in stride (thankfully).

Crossing my fingers for you, hope your arm heals well. Maybe you won't have to spend any more time at the hospital than I do.

You get it. I didn't even want to mention the death of a older gentleman I knew, or the ongoing situation with a very elderly friend of my dad's who's in hospice care now. it's nothing against the medical workers (who are seriously busting their humps), but I'm tired of hospitals and anything to do with them. I won't go so far as to hope nobody ever gets sick and all (since that won't happen), I'd just like to go a few months or a year or two away from sickbay.

That was what pros do, play as hard as you can while the clock is running, until the game is over. The USA ladies proved that they're professionals. I'm inclined to think that the Thai team shouldn't have been there, but they had to earn their spot since FIFA doesn't give out freebies as far as I know.

I'd start keeping an eye on retailers now to have combo deals (like Newegg). I noticed after I built my new system that whenever they have a major expo/convention/etc. that most companies have a sales push to bump their numbers.

"If I called him with a hidden number and mentioned his name, address and relatives with him would that be considered threatening?" Depending on the location, YES!!! Bad idea, for a lot of reasons I won't go into, but don't even waste time daydreaming such things, it might subtract IQ points.

"I have a broken dash cam in my car but let's say it was working and I show this to the cops could they have done anything? Could I have used the "extension of self" argument and charged him for assault?" Again, depending on the location, maybe. Some places might do something depending on what was thrown (charges could range from attempted assault to littering), where it happened, and what you did just prior, and just after.

The main thing to remember is that the Law doesn't have to be fair or make sense for it to apply.

Do you have a product/design? Did you do the market research for sales feasibility in your area vs online? Have you done the research for patents/trademarked goods? What about transportation of materials (both ways, to you and to your customers)? What are your costs looking like (labor, location, packing, packaging)? Potential competition? What kind of permits, waivers, permissions will you need? What will they cost? How often are renewals? What's the potential profit per week? Per month? Per year? What's it gonna cost YOU to run the business until it's profitable?

That first part are the questions that first come to my mind when you talk about starting a business, and I've never studied business admin, just the things you learn walking around for 50+ years. There's 10K+ more questions to be answered/researched/investigated before starting a business, and that's lowballing it.

"She was from the time TV and Hollywood were better quality people." If some of the stories I've heard about certain prominent personalities in Hollywood are even partially true during her tenure there, I might have to dispute that statement. The only real improvement of those people is that they know how to keep secrets, and private things private.

For your sake I hope it's nothing major, and for your mental health, I hope it's not widely known that you're in medical distress. I've been out of the hospital for a couple weeks now and I'm prepared to do violence on the next person who greets me with "Hey, how are you feeling? You're looking good, you really dodged a bullet there." I know they mean well and have good intentions but the vast majority of those people hardly talked to me before my incident, most don't even like me (though they wouldn't admit that right now), and I wouldn't wish such treatment on anyone. I now have a much greater understanding of why old, (infirm), people are so crotchety.

Sorry for the rant, and hope your stomach gets better.

I have 0 complaints or issues with the PSU. It was money well spent. The only part where I have any dissatisfaction it that the gift card kind of just vanished into either after doing all the various stuff required to qualify for the gift card in the first place. The gift card had no bearing on me buying this particular model anyway, I doubt that any reputable manufacter would have a give away that would be significant

Still nothing on the gift card, even though I've gotten ads for 1650s and MSI motherboards.
