    The "New Toys" Thread

    Yeah, at least those Fritz repeaters are at least advertised as mesh devices - although mine don't support the reserved backhaul band. Then again, I don't necessarily need that, either... one of them is purely my sonos connector, the other mainly supplies my desktop PC, which, again, is...

    There does seem to be an issue with EVGAs design… the Card shouldn’t be able to fry itself, no matter what the game (menu lol) demands :bangin:

    Well... thanks for playing the guinea pig for us in this regard :D Tells me to buy something reliable if maybe a little more expensive once we actually manage to move somewhere that's big and permanent enough to warrant a proper network* *cries in wifi everything.

    Ownership Verified: So I've bought a JAAAAAAG

    ... I hate the fact that my car comes with the stupid chrome strips everywhere*. would much rather have had the 2021 facelift that comes with all black everything. * not enough to actually do anything about it though, it seems. oh also: nice car this. I've liked it since they had it on TG...

    o_O what is this wizardry!? ... similar situation here, really. Only I run two fritz repeaters, one in the office and one 5m across the living room from the router, because it seems sonos wifi performance is the biggest garbage in the history of wifi. i can only get the damn amp to reliably...

    Well... not to be a downer or anything, but if it sucks so much, is it likely going to make for any lasting effect? :| Or is that experience maybe even likely to escalate the yoyo-effect after you finish your diet ("finally!")? You may think from my comment that I'm not a fan of diets (meaning...

    The "Things that annoy me" thread

    I got a message the other day from Amazon after buying something during prime day, that they „managed to further reduce the price after I had bought it“ and that they would refund me the difference. Was a whopping 3.50€ (5%), so I won’t complain, but… why? I bought the damn thing at the higher...

    Don't joke about that stuff, man! Honestly though, I'm also a bit baffled by the whole thing: - the size / unwieldiness of the thing - full blown AMD zen2 + RDNA2 APU (so there should be some power at least) - but still mobile (so... not so much?) - the awkward "vent" at the top (so... maybe a...

    A chance for them to force you to still send in paper attachments because some checks are implemented the wrong way round… „You said you do NOT collect rent from relatives, but you put 0 in rent collected from relatives. Computer says no.“ (yes you have to put a number…) 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️

    For some ridiculous reason in German legal circles fax is considered a „safe“ transmission… that’s why itsvstill widely used by the legal profession, in the medical field and the government (to name a few). It’s a bit dumb… also, as stated, the proposed alternatives are usually similarly atrocious.

    I'm running an MX Master (gen 1) - no idea about the funky scrollwheel tbh, mine is weird, but it works very well (some magnetic automatic unlock when scrolled fast enough). Can't for the life of me get used to the thumbwheel for wideways scrolling, but apart from that, very happy with it. Then...

    Huh, which generation Prius was that? A former colleague of mine had I think a 2nd gen and that tobt had a strangely loud engine. I thought it would’ve been one of their priorities to dampen that thing from the passengers as much as possible… maybe his exhaust was just borked or sth. Anyway: I...

    Yes! Sorry - should've said "back drivers side" - for RHD markets the placing is pretty brilliant actually... We've had an old zoe drive off while plugged (and locked) in (car sharing car, so would never blame the driver) - ripped the socket clean out of our charger. If that's the french...
