New toy.

Samsung JS9000.  48" curved 4k quantum dot TV as a PC monitor.  :D

This thing is extremely impressive, even though my five year old videocard doesn't quite support 4k resolutions. :/  Once I upgrade that, I won't have to run in upscaled 1080p.  I can't even really tell it's upscaled though, but finer image quality will put it over the top.

Some people said it took them a while to get used to the size, but it seems perfect to me.  I love the curve. :)  Oh and I got a smokin deal on it.  I paid less than $700 brand new, and it goes for anywhere from $1700 to $2300 right now.  Just a shame I can't really fit the old CRT on the desk at the same time. :(

I was here when this happened.  Started as an argument on the basketball court in the gym, and spilled outside.  Huge crowd gathered afterward and the cops told everybody to disperse.  Front doors were closed and people leaving had to exit through the back.  As far as I could tell, three shots were fired.

Why the fuck can't people just stop being huge pieces of shit?  It's time to start culling the herd.  We should start public executions for shit as small as jay walking, for the betterment of society.  Get rid of the bad apples.  >:\

Honda S2000, Forgestar F14 breaks off at the track.

Dude has a lighthearted attitude about it.  Let this be a lesson to everyone: Do not buy flow-formed rims if you're gonna track your car.  In fact, I'd take it one step further and say just don't risk it.  Save up for fully-forged if you're gonna spend money on wheels.

I've heard a lot of reports about cracking and breaking Forgestars because the center piece is cast.  The only part that's forged is the drum, and that doesn't hold the majority of the forces.  I doubt the phenomenon is limited to Forgestar, but they have a lot of wheels on the road, so they're the ones I always hear about.  Imagine if this happened on the freeway.

This is the coolest thing I've seen in a while.  I wonder if he raised this bird from a hatchling or something.  There's no real information on the video.  Cool to watch anyway.

This is pretty cool.  Once this finally makes it into smartphones, I'll be okay with a non-replaceable battery.

But until then, that shit is a fucking massive deal-breaker.  You hear me Samsung?  Don't fuck me over with the Note 6 the way you did with the Note 5.  >:\
University of California, Irvine researchers have invented nanowire-based battery material that can be recharged hundreds of thousands of times, moving us closer to a battery that would never require replacement. The breakthrough work could lead to commercial batteries with greatly lengthened lifespans for computers, smartphones, appliances, cars and spacecraft.

I have the 4.  I skipped the 5.  It has no IR blaster, SD card slot, or removable battery.  Fuck all that noise.

If you're a gamer, you might enjoy watching this.  It's long, but well researched and pretty damned interesting.

The finished product is fucking cool! It moves in a very human way. Watching them create it and the process they employ is neat to watch too. Check it out.
