    $16 for ONE? Christ what are they made of, plastic from discarded celebs butt implants? You have issues man :p I like to spend money, but on key caps at 16 a pop? Not a chance.

    I didn't notice mine shrinking much over the last two washes (from new), I bought mine direct from levi's web shop.

    I haven't noticed much shrinking from my Levi's, but have found that they can vary quite a bit in size even when ordering "identical" pairs. Three pairs of 527 Slim Boot cut, 30W, 32L, with only the color being the difference. One is almost tight and barely long enough, another is about what you'd expect (but the pockets are kind of small), and the third will fall off without a belt and the ankle will touch the ground if not wearing boots.

    It's a shame as I typically enjoy the fit of Levi's over other brands, but it makes their web store a gamble at best.

    It's that time again:

    Galantmon- he was cheap so why not.. :worried:

    [​IMG]

    Sigma 300mm F/4, chipped to work with canon DSLRs at all apertures. By all accounts, 90% of the image quality vs the Canon 300mm F/4, at 1/4 of the price. Can't wait to test it- should be coming tomorrow.

    [​IMG]

    Corsair M65; a gamble from ebay as it's from some bargain warehouse seller who doesn't bother to test 95% of what they sell so they just list everything as spares or repair- might work fine, might be a paperweight. Not too bothered either way as it was less than £20, I plan to mod it...

    Just be aware that it's a big bugger and although the bulk disappears thanks to the pocket clip and whilst it's 100% UK carry legal expect odd looks from Joe public.

    Another early birthday present from family, Big fan of vans made a mistake buying a pair of checkerboard once and I looked a right tool.

    I'm so difficult to buy for they tend to just ask me what I want, or if they see me looking at something they offer to buy it or put money towards it.

    Well do Dave it's my first dabble at it. In holiday in the weeks time so want to redo my wiring after taking out the internal DVD and putting in the new 1200i psu. But can't find anyone with the red cables.
    Might get my new 4770k this week as well.

    Just luck on ebay- if you wait long enough then the gems appear occasionally, that one I just bought was a very rare find indeed, I bought it about ~40 minutes after it was listed, great timing...

    I bought one of them a while ago, really handy to have for the odd time I need a disc drive. Never had any issues with it. It only sits in the cupboard until it's needed as its just a case of plugging it into a front USB port.

    Just wait until you hear the aftermarket prices on Click Clack keycaps. Over $100 to $250 are not that uncommon for those. :eeek: :D

    Got my clear switch covers today!

    And bought a Philips Dot bluetooth, splash proof speakers.

    €40 well spent, surprisingly good sound for such a small speaker. It's hooked up to my laptop here.

    I've carried either a Spyderco UK Penknife (original S30v blade with black G10) or a Liong Mah Number 5 for years (plus occasionally something a little more fruity...) and never got a second look from the public. I've even had thanks and one "it's nice to see someone is still prepared" from a little old lady whose handbag strap had broken (yay for Ty-raps and a knife to trim the excess)
