    The Positivity Thread aka "Today was a great day because....."

    ...and my PC is done. :) Went without a hitch, even switching from an Intel to an AMD CPU with corresponding chipsets doesn't phase Windows 10. It just shrugs and says "well, I'll install some new devices, what's the big deal?"...

    The Positivity Thread aka "Today was a great day because....."

    ...I have all the components to upgrade my PC. :) Today I'll swap mainboard, CPU and RAM in my PC and put the old stuff into a new case for my mum who currently has a PC with a dual-core CPU. Since it's her birthday next month I'll give my old components plus a bit more to her.

    The "New Toys" Thread

    Well, before the i5-4460 I pretty much exclusively had AMD CPUs so it's more like "welcome back". ;)

    The "New Toys" Thread

    Ryzen 5 2600 2x8 GB DDR4-3200 ASRock B450 Pro4 Those will succeed the aging ASRock B85 Pro4 with Core i5-4460 and 8 GB RAM in my current PC while these three components will live on in my mum's PC who has an even more aging Pentium Dual Core E2220 and just 4 GB RAM.

    Bicycles!

    Please don't run red lights, you'll discredit all the other cyclists out there which adhere to the rules so we get all the hate even though we don't do anything wrong... :razz: Oh, and I recommend bright lights for cycling in the darkness, battery powered LED lights have become very effective...

    What's your latest [non-technology] purchase?

    For the cargo bike: Ergon GP4 grips (currently there are GP2s installed, but for me the bar ends are too short) Oil changing set for the gear box (yes, the manufacturer recommends an oil change every year or 5000 km :ph34r:) Pannier rack with quick mounting points for the bag I bought for the...

    Bicycles!

    Well, there are numerous types of cargo bikes, but I like the Omnium since it's not as long as a long john (cargo platform between rider and front wheel) as a a Douze and I usually transport only light-ish cargo. When you don't transport cargo the Omnium drives almost exactly like a normal...

    Random Thoughts....

    I just discovered I got off lightly when the basement of the apartment complex got flooded... :) In the night from Wednesday to Thursday there were torrential rainfalls, somehow the water found it's way into the basement so the whole basement was covered in 3-5 cm of water. The compartment...

    FG Fitness Challenge

    Err, yeah - current readout of the very same bike computer: 9250 km. Plus about 1500 km on my gravel bike. Plus about 800 km on a rental cargo bike. Plus about 1300 km on my own cargo bike. All in all I did more than 8500 km by bicycle since August 29th 2018 which is almost exactly one year...

    The "Things that annoy me" thread

    Yeah, that works really well with car and truck drivers... :rolleyes: Btw: at least in Germany most people who cycle have driver's licenses as well. Many of them actually know the road laws better than car drivers since that's literally the only thing protecting cyclists from car and truck...

    Bicycles!

    Well, I bought a fourth bicycle... :razz: It's a cargo bicycle since I often transport bulky things which don't fit too well on a normal bicycle. The first hardness test was the ringmeet, I went by train to Cologne and cycled along the Rhine and the Ahr to the campground, all in all about 92...

    Random Thoughts....

    Yeah, it's very unpleasant, I can vouch... That said, it was just 3 minutes or so of pain, luckily I was just out on a bike ride so the head wind cooled the lip. The lip isn't even swollen anymore, it was just for half an hour or so and the sting has been about 5 hours ago.

    Random Thoughts....

    On a lighter note: Today I tested what it feels like to be stung by a wasp on the inside of your upper lip. It just buzzed in from the side when I wanted to take a bite of a bread roll so I just saw it briefly from the corner of my eye. 1/10, can't recommend. Tested just for you...

    Ringmeet 2019 - Taking in US refugees!

    Currently in Remagen, just ordered a Pizza. :) 34 km to go afterwards, should be doable in one go as long as the blood sugar level stays high enough...

    Ringmeet 2019 - Taking in US refugees!

    I'm on my way in the train from Hamburg to Cologne, arrival there 13:16. Afterwards about 90 km of cycling so I should arrive at the campsite around 18:00h more like 20:00h with all the sightseeing and breaks... ;)

    Random Thoughts (Political Edition)

    Let's go from polemics to hard facts again: today 74 years ago the first atomic bomb to be used against an enemy has been dropped onto Hiroshima, killing between 70,000 and 80,000 people instantly, injuring another about 70,000 people, many of them dying later of radiation sickness, cancer and...

    Last TV show you saw?

    Oooh, the first three episodes are pretty damn good, hopefully the rest of the season will continue that. :)
