    It's PC upgrade time, as it's been over 4 years since I last had this malarky and my current system is getting really freaking choppy (Thief was a nightmare to figure out the settings on). This is the most I've spent on a new PC in a long, long time (just over $1300), but I must admit that I'm pretty excited. Ideally I would have held out for AMD and Nvidia to figure out their 22nm cards, but it's just been delay after delay on that front, so it isn't worth another year of struggling to make things look pretty. Worse comes to worst I'll have to sell the card and cough up another $100 or $200, but I doubt I'll bother.

    Yeah, it's just for backing up crap, though, as I already have my other system drives and other random components (PSU, DVD, fan controllers, etc.)

    With that radio, I'll be able to listen to ISS astronauts communicating with ham radio enthusiasts on the ground! :eek: :D

    Edit: I'm not sure the Pi was the best option, considering the Beaglebone Black and the PCDuino. But with it, one can create an FM transmitter (from 1 to 250 Mhz) just by connecting a 30 cm wire to a pin and software, also it has decent maturity and the lowest price

    Edit2: sorry to spam this thread with offtopic, but this is the challenge:

    Now, the Pi will not have the luxuries of a packet radio modem, an ham radio or even mains power. It will use an SDR dongle as a receiver, and a solar powered battery. Very challenging, if it even possible

    That's excellent little utilitarian knife. I'm tempted to get one for an edc as I really like the simplicity of a friction folder but I think the extra length of the tang would bug me, that and I would prefer a pocket clip. I fancy trying my hand at making scales and the mini or it's bigger brother would be ideal candidates for a 1st attempt.

    I've just added this to my small collection, a Zero Tolerance 0560:

    Plus a new strop & some paste.

    The tang is not as bad as I thought, but that might be because I carry it in the otherwise empty pocket of my jacket. That Zero Tolerance looks nice. I just wish I could EDC something like that again.

    The only "comic" I read. Started five years ago by buying the first compendium.
    I still like reading this, but I hope they'll soon be putting an end to the current conflict. Feels very stretched out. Have to say that the new villain is a much more interesting character than the governor.
