  1. In all fairness and for a slew of reasons, anything that highlights what a politician is doing here in the U.S. at this point in time has the potential to become highly contentious, irrespective of their stance or party. Best not to post "news" about them or what they're doing if you don't want to get people yelling at each other.
  2. Note to self: canx any orders we get from Huang for custom leather jackets, but continue our typically excellent service to Lisa Su. If Huang asks for a reason for the cancellation, tell him demand outstripped supply.
  3. I'd think the dimming lights and buzzing sounds probably arouse their suspicions more Some of the grid here in these parts likely dates back to the time Edison was playing with tungsten threads.
  4. Yeah, I've been around analog and digital cameras and both black&white and color darkrooms for a long time now, since the early '70s, and have picked up a lot of tricks over the years. As for whether the bench has powered up yet, Initial tests on the X299 bench in the rear have been completed on air and I'll be getting it ready for water in conjunction with the SR-3/3647 and Z490 builds (which I still need to test on air). I hope to have all the water-free testing done by sometime next week so that I can move into water and put the "Muffler Bearings" control panel through its
  5. So while I'm waiting for the rest of the bits and pieces and tools that I need to make the SR-3 build power ready (they should all be here the next few days), I figured I'd dust off the Nikon D810 and my Polaroid MP4 copy stand, and get them ready to start shooting the Sports Illustrated shots (you know, the really sexy gals in skimpy bikini shots). The D810 is actually mounted to the MP4 using a macro rail combo I put together sometime back specifically for use with the MP4, which allows me to adjust critical fine focus. The Nikon itself will be tethered to my tablet by way of a r
  6. ElmorLabs EVC2S and their SOIC8 test clip showed up yesterday. Nice little package:
  7. Thanks again, everyone Actually, given their price (roughly US $4 each), it is. der8auer recently ruined an expensive ROG Strix TRX40-E Gaming motherboard and felt that the main reason that happened was because he took the cpu out of its carrier frame once too often: The carrier frames for such large cpus are a cheap enough part that there's no reason not to have extras on hand. While I do wonder though whether the real reason he dropped the cpu onto the socket had something more to to do with his focus on making the video over the task itsel
  8. bant coz here you go, $20 in pennies (sorry they're not wrapped):
  9. The CPU carriers TE Connectivity (TE AMP) sent me showed up. Best online packaging, ordering, shipping experience I've ever had: The top side of the carrier: The underside of the carrier. Note the "TIM BREAKER" tip on the upper right, as well as the pin one alignment triangle on the upper left (not highlighted): I'll be writing a bit more about breaking the tim in a future post. In the meantime, it's something I've noted in a couple of posts elsewhere that apparently some stress about because of the potential for damage
  10. Thanks bud I'm going to see if I can't make a short video of the mounting process for the heat sink I'll be using to initially test the cpu. The Noctua NH-U12S DX-3647 should be here by the end of this coming week. No laser siting necessary, but I will be using a 12.5 in/lb preset torque driver to tighten things up.
  11. Yeah, I got the feeling he was more focused on his (e.g.) camera's focus than he was on what he was actually doing when that happened. But yes, accidents can and obviously do happen.
