Sadly even the pleasant gyms here have people like that. I just slap on my shures, drown out the ambience and completely ignore everyone.

Yeah, sometimes that's all you can do. It gets awkward sometimes in my own gym though because there's some I like to have a chin wag with before and after a session (or during if I'm doing strength training and take four minutes rests) and we always end up putting our earbuds in and out of our ears awkwardly.

"All right, Dan, how are you mate?"

"Oh, hey John. What's that?" *takes out my earbuds*

"Sorry?" *takes our their earbuds*

"I said what did you say?"

"Oh, yeah, *hah* how are you?"

"I'm OK. How are you?"

Just got myself a new Cooler Master MM520 Mouse. Basically the modern iteration of the Xornet (my current day-to-day mouse)



Bought the old Xornet years ago (Feb 2013) and have used the Xornet II with my laptop for quite some time now (Since August 2016).

The Old Xornet is squeaking and having a few issues now. It's about time the old girl retired.

Very nice, Dug. Always been a huge fan of those two particular watches, especially the Planet Ocean. Way out of my budget, though.

I did get myself a Hamilton on my trip to NYC last week. It's a souvenir that will last me a lifetime. Crossed off multiple bucketlist items wearing it, too. Walked the Brooklyn Bridge, ate at steak at Delmonico's, visited the UN, etc.



It's at a jeweler's store atm sadly, as it ran at +17 sec/day. The dial isn't properly lumed, either, but it's an authentic watch. Probably a QC error, which to me makes the watch a bit more special. They could've probably replaced the dial for me, but I decided to keep it this way.

Nah, you're not. You just need to get the right size man. This is my GT Speed Series XXL I have been building since last November. It is having a gearing crisis atm so I need a new back wheel (got all of the parts.. Hub, rim, new drive etc) but yeah, this thing is long man. 21.75 top tube. It was raced in the olympics in 2012.



Far, far too big for a kid. It's bloody fast too. I just got these for my Carlo Griggs build. They were £40, £5 more than putting a decent paint job on the white ones I had.



And a chain.

Well got insane of thinking 2700x vs 8700k

A guy on a danish forum wanted to downgrade from 7900x
I asked about swapping from my 4790k
But a day later i said no. To much overkill, would rather get a 8700k

A guy with a 8700k joins in. I suggested a 3 way swap. With some price ideas.

Then a some days went by with nothing, and then the 7900x guy contacted me again.
(we live in the same city, so it would be a easy swap)
Initially he wanted 7500Dkk (889£) + my build
Then came back with 6500Dkk (771£)
I said no, only needed a 8700k.
Next day 6000Dkk (712£) (My initial price idea)

Swapped 4790k (delidded), Asus Z87i-Pro and 16gb of 2400mhz ram
For 7900x (delidded), Asrock x299E-ITX/AC + 32gb 2400mhz ram

I think 712£ is a killer price
