    I thought about getting one of the other colors, but ulimately decided on getting the black one. I didn't get the steel version because wait was longer and somewhat because it's heavier- 7


    And the regular pebble time really looks pretty nice already.

    Now I'm thinking about getting another strap for it. Maybe a nato style strap..

    I'm planning on getting a nice utilitarian brown leather strap. There is a local place that makes WW1 wristwatch straps using a period machine. They are pretty nice.

    Yeah, leather strap was also an alternative. At first I thought about a metal strap, but I don't know how it would look..

    I think I'll go to a store that sells straps and Try a few out.

    The rubber strap it comes with feels surprisingly well and weighs almost nothing... Perfect for using it as a fitness or sleep tracker

    I could use a watch. Maybe I should look into saving up to get a smart watch?

  • ASimPersonASimPerson Cold... and hard.Registered User regular
    My general advice for smartwatches is that they're really evolutionary upgrades for people who already wear watches. If you already get your cell phone out of your pocket to check the time and your notifications, the utility is somewhat limited. That... could just be me, though.

    I guess I really hate fishing my phone out of my pocket all the time is why I like the idea of a smartwatch.

    But yeah you've got a point.

    Well, the pebble time has the advantage of like a week of battery time over other smartwatches- plus, at %0 it switches in some kind of voodoo battery saving mode where it just shows the time and lasts 12 more hours before it runs out.

    Checking and being able to quick reply with canned messages and voice to stuff is pretty neat - You can even dismiss a message that you just want to read and not reply to from your phone as read.


    Also, it's like what..$199 retail? That's a really really reasonable price compared to most other smartwatches. Pebbe time seems like the only mature product on the market as of now

    while we're on the topic of household appliances

    what's a good vacuum cleaner that will work on tile floors? I've had a bissel for two years but even with replacing the filter it seems like its motor is just losing suck power causing it to... suck. are dysons actually worth the $texas they cost or is there a decent alternative somewhere between them and the cheapo vacs from wallyworld

    The lastpass data that was taken was 100000+ round PBKDF2. Provided that their disclosure is correct (and they've followed the three important steps so far, so there's some trust built there), your password is in danger of being broken sometime after the heat death of the universe.

    In delayed double post news

    My Fractal Design Define R5 arrived today.

    This is easily the nicest PC case I've ever seen, 100% the nicest I've personally owned.

    I am going to build a new PC toward the end of the year, I think, and let Lady SH inherit my old one for playing WoW.

    I want something that will decently play Fallout 4, and maybe do some VR stuff?? Probably throw a spare Win7 license on it and then immediately upgrade to Win 10, and I got a spare 4TB drive for it.

    So all I need is

    A case
    A CPU
    A MOBO
    RAM
    PSU
    GPU
    SSD for OS

    shit.

  • LuvTheMonkeyLuvTheMonkey High Sierra Serenade Registered User regular

    looks snazzy

    I kind of want something small and compact, but I know that would limit a bunch of options and potentially add some serious heat/noise to it.

    if you get any kind of serious video card... GPUs are getting stupidly big these days. i just bought a midtower case that could not fit my older mid-ranged AMD

    if you want to get a smaller case you have to consciously shop for a video card that will fit

    I fucking love my Miele. I bought it before that AMA, but it's been a stellar vacuum. It's the only device that's caused my wife and I to have a bonding moment around how much we love our vacuum and how it makes our lives easier.
    I've used dysons, electroluxes and some other stuff. This beats the pants off them. Lightweight, quietish and sucks. Filter bags make for easy cleanup too, and they hold quite a lot.

    I've had a Dyson and I still have a Miele. The Dyson had the clutch go after 2.5 years. The Miele has been going strong for 4 years now and is just fantastic. And my parents have a 20 year old Miele that has only ever needed the belts changed. For as quiet as it is, it sucks up everything. But they are pricey.

    I ended up going for a higher end panasonic that the dude recommended on his amazon shop, so we'll see how that goes. the mieles were a little out of my price range (I just threw down on all new kitchen appliances so budget is tight for a while)

    There's SFF GTX970s out there, and those are good enough for most things unless you want 4k or 1440p at >60fps (for the newest newest games with all details turned up). ASUS, Gigabyte.
