Today I pulled out from a junction right in front of another car. I genuinely thought she had flashed me.

Turns out I was wrong. I didn't know if I should slam the brakes and reverse or floor it and commit. Turns out the other car I'd have sided into on the lane I was heading to decided for me that one hit car is better than two.
So I slammed the brakes on and hit reverse ASAP and managed to avoid an accident. though that still didn't stop the woman in the car from going absolute nuts.
I totally admitted my mistake and was deliberately trying to  keep cool and be "nice" about it. Got to the stage where I had tell her that the road was clear, I was in the wrong it was never in question so go ahead and alleviate the MASSIVE FUCKING QUEUE she'd caused by staying stationary to rant at me.

Talk about making things worse!

Fuck knows what I was thinking in the first place to cause it.

Considered the G6 for my youngest's Christmas.
Given the cost of the 64GB 4GB RAM model it's a no brainer.

But do I want to go daft and get him the phone above the rig he's getting?

Wouldn't affect RAM timings on a modern mid range and up board where you can fine tune your own timings. Voltages can be individually altered also, that's why I don't bother. Far too much hassle for the gain. OC'ing to those extents are about the challenge.

I used to, but it affects RAM timing + voltage as well (or used to), so I stopped bothering about it.
It was like juggling plates and you only really noticed the difference in a few apps, if at all. (I was probably deluding myself) :sad: :smiley:

Me too.

I ordered a IBM Lenovo Moto G6, to replace my G5.
It was only £200 on Amazon today, but could cost a years labour in the salt mines after March 2019.  :laugh:

It felt like a spinoff from Hellboy.
Quite watchable and enjoyable, but not something you'd watch again.

Thinking about it I still keep getting mixed up with Hellboy.  :smiley:

I'd just like to go on record as welcoming our Chinese overlords.

Don't see why you'd doubt him TBH, he does a fine job of explaining it eloquently and simple.

I've never messed with my baseclock and always view it as the realm of OC'ing hobbyists as opposed gaining max value from my system.
