    Need to connect both optical drives. So I decided to hook up the DVD drive only. Will fix that another day. Otherwise, PC runs great.

    Here's the final look...first two are with the flash on. That's the best I could get it at this point. The SSD is at the very bottom of the PC (as seen in the second photo) to lengthen the cables out and not make that knot as much of a cluster**** as it looks. Visually, I think the airflow is good enough.

    The journey has ended. The GF's machine runs on Windows 10 Home (64-bit) edition. It looks so much better on a desktop than a tablet, it's not even funny.

    Curious to see MSFT's Tuesday announcement.

    Glad to be out of Singapore. The haze is so unhealthy I contracted cough and sinusitis, thankfully my single malt-honey recipe cured me in time for work.

    Msft killed what worked awesome for tablets. I still don't like tablet mode on Windows 10.

    It's a sport designed to watch on TV.
    Considering it was created long before TV was invented that's highly unlikely...

    All sport have benefited by TV and has allowed the sport to become more interesting as all the slow parts can be manipulated out.

    I went to a basketball game and I was so bored it wasn't funny. Even ice hockey suffers from this issue. You have to be a real fan to suffer going to a live game.

    Ignorance, there is a cure.

    Cricket or baseball. About the same really.

    You really need to love the game to be there in person.

    Morning folks. I see the hype machine for tomorrow's MSFT announcement is cracking up.

    At this point, all I care to see is price and availability. I hope they have units ready to purchase quickly after announcement. Still, if the overprice these, they're pretty much ****ed.

    I wouldn't mind seeing them launch a mid range tomorrow along side those flagships. But hey, when you don't ask for much, you're never disappointed when you don't get what you want.

    I'm sure that games didn't have as many stoppages in the 19th or early 20th centuries as they do today.

    Back in those days, when people went to a game, they went for the game. These days, the whole thing is an "experience".

    To get bored? I have walked out of a football game in a brand spanking new stadium with center seats (each ticket in excess of $100) after the first 20 minutes or so...baseball is do able and so is basketball but I can't seem to catch onto watching football live. On TV I'll watch football and basketball but no baseball.

    To each his own. The thing that makes football tolerable on TV is the actual broadcasting. Still, I prefer live in person sports, especially if you've got company.

    I'm mostly with you. They're all intolerable, but that's my opinion of course. I had centre court seats at a basketball game and even with the 'entertainment' every break it got boring. Baseball... snore.

    In nice weather maybe. Still, better things to do on a nice day.

    Even though I'm not a sports person I think playing them is far more interesting than watching. Even then, it can be boring. LOL!

    I guess. I think for me, I was raised in a sporting environment that my love for sports allows me to enjoy both live viewing and TV broadcasts. Golf is one of the hardest sports to watch on TV. I think with anything it's better to play than to watch, but I still like live sports. Maybe the technical aspect or just the antics in the crowd are some of the most fun parts.

    I don't think I'd go to a soccer match in Europe though. Those crowds are a bit too ethnocentric for my tastes.

    Not bad business class prices. Too bad none of them are going to where I want to go... :P

    Besides, not going to be travelling too much next year probably. Maybe a couple of small trips but nothing else at this moment.

    I think the stoppages nowadays are for TV commercials.
