    A nice Auto Sears (By Ricoh) 28mm f/2.8 with the original leather pouch, caps, filter and even the literature. Not a special focal lenght by any means but one that I had not.

    I meant VMWare ESXi...

    But yeah, the Plex VM is CentOS 7; far easier to run Plex as a service under Linux than it is under Windows. I may consider moving my current ghettoserver to ESXi, but I'm holding off on that until I finish building out the rest of the rack.

    And the most preposterously overpriced airfare award goes to....... *drumroll*

    BMI Regional and £645 for Nottingham-Brussels return next Tuesday!

    Frankly ridiculous.

    For that much it better be direct by the back seat of a Eurofighter.

    New sets of Unison pastels, these are among the very best soft pastels.

    :D

    I think it's time. We've had a 1.9 diesel Golf, a couple of 1 litre Fiestas and a 1.2 litre Corsa over the past 12 years whilst we've climbed the property ladder and the missus finished her 10 years of exams. We're now in our lifetime house, the mortgage is fixed for 5 years, so time to treat ourselves before kiddies arrive. Was looking at a Cayman but figured we'd never actually use it if we did have kids.... at least this has back seats.

    So I may have found the keyboard of my dreams:

    Quickfire XTi (ANSI) with MX Green switches. Got this for £109.99 shipped (even so, my wife is still gonna kill me).

    A new IP pan/tilt webcam for home security.
    It will be placed in a window, pointing at my car.

    Cracking little sub, used to have one forever ago and was always impressed with the depth such a small enclosure produced.

    I was even considering one a couple weeks back after being entirely unimpressed with how compromised the Habitat 1 was for the sake of WAF (but went another way, decided harmony was a better option than hiding, and it turns out BK were happy to accommodate a bespoke finish)

    I bought it to go with my Mission 753s as I missed a lot of the low end that my old 733s offered

    Hopefully not too much of a pain to get them dialed in.

    They bloody are as well, coming from a fellow artist. I have a few and they are the smoothest pastels I've ever used. They're quite expensive though.

    They do cost a bit but at least when the favourite colours get used up they can be bought singly, instead of having to buy the whole set again.

    Do you know if those caps are available for UK-ISO layout?
