It draws in 550w of power. I wouldn't use it on delicate items, it could blow off anything small held down with adhesive.

Re: The 'Look What the Postman Brought Me' Thread - Technology Edition

Bin the DVD drive and stick one of those drive bay sized case fans in there? I mean who uses optical drives in the republic of gamers anyway? A few backwards folk in the Sharkzone I suppose..... It's pretty weird seeing a DVD drive on a machine capable of 4k video output. It gets the axe! I also bo...

Re: George Floyd - US in meltdown

We've all seen a hungolomghononoloughongous equivalent amount of news, info, & stories on the ongoing protests this week. So much i'm not too sure where to start to even help out. You just end up glossing over all the links to bail fund donations, support guides, and even more. So err...how about a ...

Re: George Floyd - US in meltdown

I've been seeing this unfold over social media with reports of tactics the police are deploying in breaking and dispersing the protesters. Totally evil shit man, I don't even know where to start.

Anyway...

Re: Currently Playing

I couldn't defeat the last boss in Bloodstained Ritual of the Night , so I YouTube'd the ending. I just ain't got the reflexes anymore to finish that kinda game. Overall it was kinda alright? I've also been putting some time into Forza Horizon 4 . After a while I see a pattern of rubber banding AI a...

Re: Mass Effect HD remaster in the works?

ME1 could do with redesigning the Mako sections. ME3 ending could also do with a rethink as well.

Re: Currently Listening

Can I embed BandCamp tracks here?*

I could do with more slow-ish chillout tracks if anyone wants to recommend anything.

Re: The Covid-19 thread

I've had to use the bus for work this month, just increasing the risk of catching this danged virus. I had this odd sensation at the bottom of my lungs on tuesday, nothing painful just something that I could notice. Didn't go into work that day, I think it's probably related to stress or anxiety of ...

I bought a Xbox One X with Game Pass and i'm flooded (and floored) by whats on offer. Simply too much to choose from! And they just added Ace Combat 7. T'is great game featuring a PNG dog, give it a try! In the end I ended up playing Gran Turismo 2 on my PS Vita. Now it may be a naff looking game to...
