    Also bought a "DisplayPort to DVI" converter. Cant really tell the difference between the DVI and VGA at 1920x1200 resolution but the converter cord is shorter so that must count for something. Also bought a "ps/2 to usb" converter so I can use my old ps/2 keyboard on a newer computer. I hate the new new flat laptop like keyboards. Also bought a "UNI SD card reader" that has USB-C on one end and regular USB 3.0 on the other. In all its about 60 USD of stuff that I needed to update my aging at home desktop setup. I finally have USB 3.0 ports and DDR3 RAM.

    Looks good. Just hope it don't die at a critical moment in an FPS - lol.

    Knowing the solution doesn't mean knowing the method. Yet answering correctly and regurgitation are considered "learning" and "knowledge".

    Can't tell you how much time I've had that happened to me with my previous knockoff mechanical keyboard and when the battery getting low the connection starts dropping randomly. Course I did my research and this keyboard can be plugged in and used wired while charging, so problem solved there.

    Finally got a 3060 (non-ti) on a way less ridiculous price than it has been since release. Don't think I'll need to upgrade this one for a long time to come as it runs so sweet even with RTX on at 1080p . Forgot to take pics because I was so excited to put it in .

    My old Wasabi plugin charger was getting a bit flaky so I bought this 3 battery usb charger for my camera. It definately is more useful to charge 3 batteries at the end of the day instead of juggling 1 at a time. I also bought 2 new Wasabi batteres because I thought my current 2 were on the way out but it turns out that the fault was the old charger because they are charging fine now. I always charge my batteries outside of the camera just incase they swell or explode. You never know.

    I had 2 different labelers. A Brother and a Dymo. While I got the Brother off Amazon, I got the Dymo locally. Unfortunately I didn't do good research before buying - just thought "oooh! Shiny!" and went at it. Didn't realize some of the features I wanted were not on the models I had. So getting this.

    It supports cable labels - which is something I've wanted and needed. While I've done workarounds - kinda getting tired of having to do so. That should help. Considering it's really just for myself and the odd network cleanup - I don't need the pro. Plus it's out of pocket and not company property so....
