The Corsair 100R Silent

So, I bought a Corsair 100r Silent case, because it fit where I wanted it to on a shelf.
There are many others one finds after a purchase that are nicer, more colorful or what ever else. It is a box, black and stoic simple and parts where I needed them.
So the build:
Corsair 100r Silent Case
MSI B350 Tomahawk mobo
EVGA GeForce GTX 980 SC GAMING ACX 2.0
AMD Ryzen 5 1600
2x 8GB G.Skill Flare
2x 16GB G.Skill Flare
250GB SSD
2x 2TB WD Black HDD
3x 120mm Fans

So I cannot leave well enough alone, finding that the mobo can do RGB colors, I needed a side panel with a window. Taking the easy route I found the Corsair Spec-01 windowed side panel fits perfectly so I got one.
It has a tinted window.
I have a roll of 5050 RGB lights so those can easily be added.
and I bought a small universal hood scoop from ebay, you know, because.
Have looked at Etsey and found a custom GPU back plate maybe use the WT badge on the side, but still pondering that.

WTF, roller skates?

So group of us went roller skating at the local rink.   The rental skates sucked, but then I rented the old 1 dollar rentals.  Neither of the skates were set to the same tension on the cushions.   So each turned at their own rate, and trying to stand on one at a time was an experiment in terror.

I did not fall down!  My real only high point of the night.

So, I have bought skates, why?  because I am obsessive, I want to use my stuff not another. I want shit that actually works, not something apparently fixed by a person, or possibly a Racoon in the advanced stages of rabies.

So I found a pair of Dominion 718 Super X skates with 95a Carerra wheels.  Got em for 30 dollars!  plus 15 shipping.  that is still less that the price of the plates alone.  Bot is not top of the line but all leather, apparently well made and will do for a while, if not longer.  The plates are Sure Grip Super X, not the best plate but the rock solid plate you can do just about anything with.   And the wheels are not all that good from what I understand.

Yeah they lost me as a customer when the guy behind the counter could not find the wrench to loosen the lock nut on the kingpin.  How about chain that thing to the bench so it does not walk off?!?!

 

 

I bought my self one of those too.

Elephant_Wrench_4b0c52d70b6eaSo for about 25 bucks I replace the cushions, pivot cup and toe stops.  55 bucks all together for pretty darn good starter skates!  Not to mention I will be replacing the Kingpin bolt with a reverse kingpin setup, new laces, and replacement wheel nuts and kingpin nuts.

 

A picture to describe what some of the parts are, I sure as hell didn’t know until a few days ago!

So yeah, as soon as the eBay seller gets off their butt and ships these things I will have them!

I would have put this on Pinterest BUT AS USUAL, the link is just photos of links that really go NOWHERE.
REALLY PEOPLE!?!?  Take the time to find the real link and link to that, not linking to other’s Pinterest sites.

And just like any web page go check it again and again –BECAUSE THIS STUFF GOES AWAY!  — YOU SAVED NOTHING!!!
(/RANT)

Anyway here is a basic recipe:
NON-edible fake/prop blood. (As created by Stiltbeast Studios.)
1. 1.75 ounces of Elmer’s Clear Washable School Glue (available at craft stores) 2. 1/2 teaspoon of McCormick’s Red Food Coloring
3. ONE DROP of Blue Food Coloring (any kind will work)
Mix well. Dries shiny and is vaguely water-resistant. Varnish if you need it water-proofed.  It is Washable glue so it will wash away in waster, laundering, and rain.

Here is the link to Stiltbeast’s video on testing this glue:

Why am I here

This is a Weight Watchers commentary. Well it all started to use 5 6 years ago. We lost weight we were happy moving right along everything was grand then it all kind of stalled out. Why are we still here.? Near as I can tell the only reason we’re still at Weight Watchers is we don’t want to get fatter have we lost weight yes have we gained weight yes. But physically were stronger I can lift more weight we can do more activities but we haven’t lost any weight in the last sleep in like plateaued for 5 years. I think the reason we continue to come if we don’t want to get bigger we started out in the 300 range and now we’re down in the 200 range considerable amount of weight lost anywhere from 80 to 90 pounds each. Still we need to lose more during game to game our goal weight. And we need to lose more to get to her lowest weight we’ve achieved so far. But I think if we had been with Weight Watchers we would be back closer to 300 in the 250 that we are now. So when they say goals aren’t measured at the scale this is true they’re not get measured in pants size they’re not measured in shirt size of sometimes they can be measured in just activity or just in physical well-being. Sure my clothes are smaller than they were and I can do more than I was but I’m also not on any medication anymore so that’s a bonus. Why am I still doing Weight Watchers because I’m afraid if I quit I would get back to where I was and that’s not a healthy place to be it’s tough it’s tough everyday to go years on end with no appreciable gains or losses if I do lose enough weight I get a star okay I’ve already had that star so I get nothing and that’s hard to. So my next car would be 895 pounds I think I’ve got ten fifteen pounds to lose to get there if I get to 100 pounds I get a magnet are leaders been holding onto for many years now cuz I’ve been determined to get that damn magnet 400 pounds lost. So essentially I’m paying Weight Watchers for therapy because I apparently can’t stop eating the things I know I shouldn’t be eating and I go every week I pay every month for the weekly therapy do not go out and do worse yes this is like being you know addicted anything else it sucks its hard to do it’s hard to deal with other people when they are unhappy with their progress. Am I close this so I don’t ramble on vaguely about things but yeah keeping Weight Watchers is probably keeping me from being worse off than I am there are foods I know I can eat all of them and I choose not to because I know I’ll be back up in a weight range that I couldn’t do most of the things I’m doing now even though then I was still out running people all day long are out working anyway not a sell out running them. So that’s my ramble kind of put down in words why I’m at Weight Watchers eventually I’ll get back to this post and correct all the misspellings thank you for your time.

18 years and counting.

So I have been on CPAP for 18 years now.
1997….
wow…
Found old paperwork, my original Sullivan CPAP machine is still going strong, never a problem there.
but my original mask, which I replaced parts on around 2003, so what, six year later? I hate, have hated it and only had it and it was all I knew.
The Breeze SleepGear CPAP Mask with nasal pillows.
It is pictured at the top of the photo.
This year, 2003, I had to get a new sleep study done since I had no real prescription so I can get my gear updated or at least checked out.

Do you know they have updated equipment?
Dr Sullivan diagnosed and started CPAP studied only a year or two BEFORE I got my machine!?

So in the study I used a ResMed Swift mask, was very nice, I wanted one, and in searching came across the ResMed Airway p10. I LOVED the swift to sleep in, BUT, it has a harsh blast of air that turns down and pretty much blows on your arms. Not fun, and one thing I hated about the Breeze was the jet of air coming from the front, so I consciously slept facing the other way so air is not blowing at my wife. Not a good thing at least to me.
The P10 on th other hand has a gentle waft of air, and does not seem to be noticed by my wife and it SO TOTALLY QUIET!!

I bought one, it is also in the picture as a comparison of the wee tiny thing I now have strapped to my head. So much nicer. Nose can still be irritated, and it may move around a little more but I feel I get better sleep, deeper sleep with it on.

Technology, so much fun.
I do look forward to possibly getting a new machine as well, oh the joy of sleeping with a blower that reduces pressure when you breath out, is so fancy.
