Toshiba X300 5TB HDD. I had to sell my last high capacity HDD last year when my car went bang. I’ve been slumming it with whatever I can find regarding mass storage as my focus has been on getting the family laptop, HTPC and my gaming rig tooled up with SSD boot drives.

I’m one of those people that likes to have the vast majority of my gaming library available at a moment’s notice. I don’t know if it’s because I grew up on consoles and so had every game I owned to hand instantly, or I’m just so used to game sizes expanding faster than my download speeds can keep up. Either way I find it very frustrating when I have a “don’t know what to play” moment and realise that to download some of the options will take anywhere from six hours to three days depending on the game and how heavily I’m having to throttle it to make sure the rest of the house can still use the internet. I’m cheekily getting this shipped to work where we have a dedicated line which will probably allow me to set my downloads running tomorrow leave it over the weekend, and have my entire Windows library ready to take home on Monday.

The plan is start dual-booting Linux so I’ll probably use ~4TB for my Windows library and the other ~1TB for Linux games. That should leave plenty of room to accommodate more games as I buy them over the next few years. I’ll buy a 1TB SSD at some point as well which will take the pressure off having to get any more mass storage solutions too soon.

£60 or thereabouts one of the Blueshifts I won in their facebook compo
@Warchild premium juices have just that a premium but if you look about DIY makes sense theres 1.5 litres of e-juice there for £60 this will last me months without buying anymore

On average though, How much do these flavours cost someone per month? They seem pretty expensive and dont last that long from the sound of it.
And I could completely understand that. However, farts smell, body odour smells and so on. I have a very keen sense of smell being autistic and I have had to suffer many a pong because of some one else.

For me to vape these juices I spend about £13 a week total. That includes the half bottle of vape (doing about 50ml a week now) and the nicotine (about £1 per shot perhaps?) and everything else (coils, syringes etc).

At one point my ex and I were buying a pack of Superking Black each per day (about £9 a pack) and then running out around 7pm and falling back onto a pack of tobacco. I would roll us extra cigs.. Another £5 or so.

So yeah, it's deffo better than smoking and a crap load cheaper too ! This is why for the most part I have never bothered making my own liquid or doing the research ETC. If I can afford something and not be poor because of it* then why bother? I mean, these are the best liquids you can get tbh. They're imported from the USA too.

But at £13 a week when it used to be about that much per day? yeah you can see why I haven't bothered.

*When I used to smoke I was poor. All day, every day. I had about £20 a week to spend on PC repairs if I needed them. Smoking is a habit that will cost you a good chunk of your cash. Even if you have a good job the cost is ridiculous.

I mean, FFS, my aunt and uncle used to smoke 40 a day each. So that is what? about £19 each (so £38) times 7 days is £266 a week.
