    I just ordered an original Xbox for my first ever Xbox purchase. Picked up some games today to be ready for when it does come in.

    All of them are complete with manuals, and some even have the 2 month OG Xbox Live voucher included in the case, which I think is pretty cool.

    How does that chair on wheels work when you have to slam on the brakes?

    Surprisingly, it doesn't move an inch. It helps that I don't drive aggressively, and I also modified my G920's brake pedal (got rid of the infamous rubber block).

    Because today's Dennisch wants an optical out on his pc :

    And because I wanted to know what all the fuss is about, and people around me too, and it was cheap (I will make money selling this again) and the only one available:

    Not in particular outside of my second copy of Bag of Bones (for reasons, mainly first King novel I read), but if I can get a decent price for some of them I am.

    Got this in the mail today.

    The first two books were fantastic so I'm excited to see how the trilogy ends. I would highly recommend them to anyone that likes spy thrillers.

    I also got this a week or so ago, figured I would finally start the Dark Tower series. Planning on getting all the books in hardcover.

    You know I questioned if that part of my post was even worth typing, I guess it was! :) That's interesting though, I wonder why yours is different than ours, it puzzles me.

    If it is
    ....what would yours be?

    Kind of makes me jealous in a way because as far as I know, you could just easily plug it in. Only thing is, since my TV is digital, I had to fiddle around with it for a few minutes and have it search for analog channels in order for it to detect it. All that trouble just to turn it to channel 3 pretty much and to think it used to be so simple! :lol:

    My mom actually sat down and played the console whenever got it set up and honestly can't recall the last time she did that. :dunce:

    The left is the same as the connection on the rear of my TV. The right one is the cable that goes into the tv, or nowadays into the tv box supplied by the provider.
    Ours is also Rg-59 and 6, but the connections are different.
    We call it coax cable.

    Also .

    I could have hooked you up with the stuff .

    Nice buy. I've had one for a couple of years now and it really is a great body. Looking forward to your pictures when you start shooting on this.

    I've liked it so far. Got a Sigma 17-70 F2.8-4 and a Canon 70-300 F4 with it, as well as a battery grip. Honestly tempted to buy his Tamron 70-200 F2.8 as well. Got to try it out yesterday and I really enjoyed it.

    Uppers and downers. Can’t believe how expensive the purple ones are compared to the other ones.

    These were bought last year but I haven't bought anything of note since anyway:

    A complete Linhof Technika kit (not seen are a 210mm lens, 6x9 roll film back and a reflex viewfinder). Awesome camera, it's a rangefinder too so I can have a go at some large format street photography :lol:

    [​IMG]

    I've also been building a darkroom since mid-Oct last year, so I bought some enlargers:

    [​IMG]

    1.8x Leica Focomat V35 enlargers - I originally bought one complete enlarger (with a bunch of trays for processing the prints), saw another a few weeks later but was missing the filters/lens, picked it up for free and moved the filters and lens from the first into the second one - I now have a spare chassis should anything go wrong with the main one. Really wonderful design, very solidly built. Came with a Leitz timer/exposure meter as well which was nice.

    [​IMG]

    An LPL C7700 for my 6x6/6x7 negs. It's a decent enlarger, not as nice to use as the Leica but it does the job. This one was also bundled a really precise Durst digital timer as well.

    Everything manages to fit in a storage cabinet under the stairs!

    I just purchased The Crew Ultimate Edition for $14.99* on Humble Bundle in the Ubisoft Publisher Sale talk about a steal!
    * = could be even less depending on how much wallet credit you have on Humble Bundle

    And this:

    DSC_1199.JPG

    Turned this:

    DSC_1200.JPG

    Into this:

    DSC_1232.JPG

    In other words I got an 8700K, Asus Z370-F, Noctua NH-U14S, 2x8GB Corsair Vengeance DDR4-3000 and yeah, a Fractal Design Meshify C with the dark tinted glass. I kept the Zotac Amp Extreme GTX 1080, Corsair RM650X, 2x500GB Samsung 850 Evos, 250GB 850 Evo, 250GB 840 Evo, 500GB Intel 600p and... Oh yeah, the Gigabyte 802.11ac card.

    I didn't, however, keep the daisy chain of cable ties to support the 1.8kg cooler on the graphics card so as you can see, it's sagging a bit. I'm going to ask someone at work to make me a thing to straighten it out.
