Looks like Dell are doing Black Friday. Been looking at these used on Ebay for ages for around £35 (they are about £55-60 new) and then Alienware are selling them for £24 inc.





It's some sort of Logitech, IIRC.

Edit. £6.89



Got it on Lightning deal. Half price, 90x40cm.

Bought Rainbow Six Siege on sale for a friend so we can play together. Also bought myself a second account to mess around with. One of my favourite multiplayer games in recent years.



Also had to buy a new mouse pad. I've apparently had my desk positioned too high for years, and pinched my ulnar nerve because of it. Got elbow pains, and my pinky- and ring finger felt numb.

Lowered my desk and bought this large Dream Machines mouse pad and the symptoms have almost completely gone after just two weeks. Plus, a nice, large mouse pad with good surface and stitched edges for €14 was too good of a deal to pass on.

My ass was getting numb on my rickety office chair so managed to get this at a local computer shop for £100 as the box was opened, Brand new and still in pieces in sealed bags but the box was opened so the owner at the store did me a deal, Considering it goes for £300 new I think I got a good deal

The last of my new peripherals designed to make my life easier.



Hawked Amazon until one finally came up with a discount

Damn good price, I actually got a 4 x port powered USB 3 hub for my Logitech X56 a few weeks ago for £15 so £24 for that is brill !

Yeah it was £35 before and things like that (you know, actually useful things) are not cheap and never seem to go on sale. I was all but resigned to drop £35 next week, then it came up so I took the money out of my savings. Worth doing tbh. It was a Lightning deal, bugger me they go fast. Get to checkout and you're all like "QUICK I ONLY HAZ FIVE MINS LEFT !". I think with that one there was about 15 mins, but I was still rushing to get it ordered hehe.

My mouse comes today (got the DHL email last night) as does the hub and other parts (fittings, fan extensions etc). I also have a bottle of liquid for vaping that was attempted last week, so that should do everything and I can then go back to bloody bed.

Edit. Gonna waffle.. Basically I have not used the Asus headset very much (Centurion) because I would prefer to connect it up on the desk rather than to the PC. IT's a bit far away and the cables are a bit short for my liking. I'm deffo lining my nest for Fallout 76 though. I am also (you heard it here first) retiring from all large future projects. I have one bike left to build and that's it. It is becoming too much and making me ill. My flat looks like the local tip (I was up until 1am cleaning my bedroom but man it looks great now) and I am just getting overwhelmed.

So it is time to bow out gracefully. 45 is young to retire from pretty much everything, but with a brain like mine I feel 90.

Not planning to even mine, but they were on clearance for 25e so grabbed one. I've been thinking of building a home server/HTPC so I guess now I know the platform.

At least it has space for, I dunno, plenty of audio cards and pci-e sata adapters which are vital for such use.

Did some benches and I suppose this means my IO speeds are fast enough:

Phoronix test suite actually thinking the bench crashed since it was almost instant. LOL
