    Indeed. That's what OPPO advertise it as but it's really just pleather. It's different from the usual ceramic and glass backs though so I don't mind.

    I bought a couple of used CDs from the (not so) local record store. The Smiths - Meat is Murder, and Matthew Sweet - 100% Fun.

    Got some old junk to listen to music with. I don't even have cassette tapes to listen to, but I now own a tape deck. Mixtape anyone?

    The rather sad looking speakers will likely be replaced when finances allow.
    The receiver I also bought is not pictured as it is a champagne silver and must be shunned for not matching the other two pieces.

    A shiny new DS4. My current one is starting to show it's age a bit. Was just doing to go for the standard Black but Midnight Blue was only a few bucks more.

    I was shopping for a new utility / loop scarf and found this dumb cheesy thing. I bought it immediately and wear it all day in the office to piss my co workers off. :lol:

    Needed a compact sketchbook/design journal.
    It cost a nice penny, but it’s everything I need for now.

    My wife and I have both been talking about selling stuff online for a while. I know there’s probably not a huge amount of money to be made with it, but honestly, I enjoy design and we think it’ll be a fun way to kill some time.

    So, we’ve invested in this little green machine. It’s a cutter for vinyl, card stock, fabric etc, which works off of SVG files. It’s only little, but cuts up to 30cm x 60cm at a time, so it’ll handle our hobby just fine.

    I took it for a proper spin on the weekend, making up files and printing them out as stickers for my fold away work bench. Gotta say, I’m pretty happy with the results and very happy with the purchase! :D

    I wanted to see if I could use a wireless keyboard with my five year old iPad Air 2. So I bought this Sades V2020 keyboard and mouse set. However, to use it, it requires plugging in a small USB thumb drive to the computer. iPads don't have USB ports. So I bought this Deorna adapter, and it work perfectly. I can set my iPad up on its stand and type away on a keyboard like a regular computer. The only downside is I still have to use the home button to close apps.

    I really like the floating button design. If you're in the market, look at both the Sades which comes in all sorts of colors, and Grapefruit keyboards which also come in all sorts of great colors.

    a recent shopping error saw us buy coffee beans instead of our usual ground coffee. The wife bought a cheap little manual grinder........ way too much work
    drill to the rescue :)[/ATTACH] 20200720_110857.jpg 20200720_110919.jpg

    Are they solid?

    Having once ridden a bike with a set of solid tyres I can say they are hard. Like 110psi hard. Comfort is definitely compromised for puncture proofing.
    Also, the guy who owned the set I rode on said he had to send his wheels off to get them fitted by a special machine (in Korea, I think), hopefully, you don't encounter that issue.

    There were three different "psis" I could choose from, 110 (hard), 100 (normal) and 95 (soft). I opted for 100.

    As for install, the video @Eunos_Cosmo posted in the biking thread was a guy and his wife getting them installed. I figure if they can, I'll manage. :p

    I’m interest to see what you think of them and how the fitting goes. I’ve had half a mind to get some for my commuter.

    I have that same grinder, and I’ve done the same damn thing lol

    I just grind it myself, but it did give a good laugh when I tried that.
