    Now that I think about it BP really did like cake o.O. Do you all think he meant "that cake" instead of the cake we though he liked? Or maybe you all knew and I was the last one to get it?
    Good chance he may have liked both types of cake.

    We always know and you're always the last one to get it, though...

    Morning Ed. I like how you call a 7 hour shift "short". Lol.

    Posted via Moto Maxx
    Well, it is.. Considering most of my shifts are more in the 13-14 hour range. I can work a 7-8 hour shift like it's nothing! lol (shoot, it's almost like a day off!)

    Morning MIA

    I have a "new video card itch" myself.... though I really don't "need" one. My recently purchased GTX 970 is more than capable for what I do right now. I can run all of the latest titles (Doom, The Division, etc) on Ultra settings @1080p which looks fantastic to my eyes.

    Maybe next year I'll step into the 4K gaming realm and upgrade to a GTX 1070 or 1080ti and get one of those fancy shmancy 4K displays. I could drive a 4K display now with the GTX 970, but I'd probably have to dial down the settings to maintain the framerate.

    I e always got an "itch" for something.. I also have a new guitar itch! Not that there's anything wrong with my premium Gibson Les Paul Custom.. Which is what I consider the king of all electric guitars. It just doesn't get any better... but I want a Fender Stratacaster or Telecaster as well to go with it. One of the reasons I'd like a 2nd guitar is because the Les Paul is SO heavy! I mean it's a tank! If I'm standing playing the LP, I'll start feeling the weight of it after a while.

    I have two requirements for the Fender guitar.

    1. It must have the maple fingerboard. (This is the lighter colored "blonde" fingerboard.) To me, these just look great and are so smooth feeling while playing. Have always wanted one with this!

    2. It must have the "HSS" pickup configuration. (Humbucker, single coil, single coil) this narrows it down to about 3/8ths of all Fenders on the market. It's not that this config is rare, it's just that the standard "SSS" configs are all over the place.

    Oh, what the human body is capable of putting up with...

    Speaking of which, one of my co-workers is desperately unhappy at her job...to the point where i suspect the unhappiness and stress is manifesting in the form of some of her current physical ailments.

    It's beyond sad to see. I mean you can politely suggest certain things but you cannot make people make choices they aren't ready to make.

    Morning, Ed.

    My phone itch is differs t this time as I'm not looking for something to sample, more so something to stay with for a good while. I'm almost tempted to sell my XL and try to find a unicorn 1520 and get something like a 6P.

    This time of year in the phone industry is always tricky...the H1 flagships are out and still a bit too expensive, and people are looking forward to the OEMs like Moto who launch their flagships in the fall. So that means last year's flagships from these guys are on sale and you're in that "should i or shouldn't i buy" sort of feel...

    This is true. You can lead a horse to water...

    I've seen first hand the effects of stress and unhappiness take its toll on physical health. Physical and mental well being are directly connected. If one falls, the other will soon follow. Depression is deadly.

    Reminds me of that old Vince Lombardi/General George Patton quote "fatigue makes cowards of us all" ... I never really knew what it meant until I got older.

    Same to you :)
    I can get maximum 8 points because of higher lever. Think of 6,7 and 8 points as over 100%. We will see, hopefully I get 5 or 6 point. But to be fair, 2 points would be enough, but I want more :D
    Again, same here :D. I can get a C and everything will still be kinda fine. My total average would be 4.6 and that's still an A.
    But I'm planning to go to IT related college, so I need maths there, and if my grade isn't at least B, I'll be loosing some serious points.

    Can a human eye really notice the difference between Full HD and Ultra HD? I've seen 4K displays, they look wonderful, but also not natural at all.

    Nope. Your eyes on a phone cannot tell the difference from 330PPI and up. On a TV, for my viewing purposes, you get sharper pictures but not necessarily good color saturation on the HD films.

    I think it also depends on how far away you're from the TV.

    The weather here is doing the opposite. Crap during the day, beautiful at night.

    It's so blatantly obvious now. We went out for drinks to celebrate another colleague's birthday and she got so tipsy on red wine the unhappiness started to pour out. It's just such a shame...

    I can't wait for the time when the weather is nice 24/7. I love spending nights on my balcony and listening to music. I like it more than going out.
