It comes already  fitted. Remember the fuss over that one on the Galaxy Fold they didn't tell anyone about?

Got a neighbour who has a very noisy engine, unless someone has nicked the exhaust pipe

That can be annoying. Keasy has a neighbour with a Scooby Impreza that has one of those exhausts that looks like a catering sized can of beans. It wakes him up early every Sunday morning.  :azn:

The world's foremost authority on wasps is walking down the street when he sees an old vinyl record in the window of an antique shop, "Wasp noises from around the world".

Intrigued, he goes into the shop and asks if he can listen to it. "Certainly," says the shop assistant and pops it onto an ancient turntable. After listening to the first track for a while, the world's foremost authority on wasps is a bit confused.

"I don't recognize any of these noises, and I'm the world's foremost authority on wasps! Can you play the next track please?"

The assistant obliges and skips the needle onto the next track after a while, the world's foremost authority on wasps is still confused "No, I still don't recognize any of these wasps. Can you try the next track?" The assistant skips the needle on, and the world's foremost authority on wasps listens for a little while longer before shaking his head. "It's no good. I just don't recognize any of these wasps"

The assistant peers at the label of the record and says...

"Oh, I'm terribly sorry. I had it on the bee side"

TfL are such a pain in the butt sometimes, ordered an new oyster card for my journeys, and I have to pay for the rest week waiting for the card to arrive, only for it not to turn up either because someone nicked my letter, and now I have to pay £5 for a new card and an extra £1.50 to "activate" it

A six year old boy was at the NYC courtroom yesterday when he challenged a court ruling over who should have custody of him.

The boy had a history of being beaten by his parents and the judge awarded the custody to his aunt in keeping with child custody law and regulation requiring that family unity be maintained to the highest degree possible.

The boy surprised the court when he proclaimed that his aunt beats him just like his parents and he refused to live with her. When the judge suggested that he lived with the grand parents, the boy cried that they also beat him

Now learning that violence was apparently a way of life for the family, the judge took the unprecedented step of allowing the boy to propose who should have custody of him.

After conferring with the child welfare officials, the judge granted temporary custody to MANCHESTER UNITED whom the boy firmly believes are not capable of beating anyone

Built two Ryzen 2600/RX580 based gaming machines for customers in the last few days and enjoyed every minute of the process.
It's probably my favourite computer activity and the Gigabyte Aorus B450M Elite is a very nice motherboard.

Think the base of mine is 8-9 years old I7 2600K watercooled same case and mobo but have had to change the PSU, upgraded the GFX twice (now a 1660GTX) and added another 8 gig of ram and quite a few SSD's but it runs games Like the Division 2 and BF5 on ultra at 60FPS quite nicely

Dont really think i need to upgrade the CPU just yet

I'm the same, the mobo/ram/cpu/psu core has been bullet proof and there's not major benefit to upgrading just yet, but it's getting there.

That would probably be my preferred option.
The longevity of this i7 though...

I did look at a ryzon a bit back but my i7 is holding up so well just cant justify upgrading the cpu at the moment as would have to change the ram and mobo to!

Now my work place is bordering on shear incompetence in how to deal with contractors. Three out of all the lifts are not working

This what makes me laugh so hard. People trying to use a shortcut via my street, only to get blocked by a delivery van

And they all stack up behind each other tooting their car horns

Well they shouldn’t be using the street as a shotcut. Touche  :laugh:  :laugh:

Very cold and wet today, and due to become worse over the next week. Miserable.
