    Canon 7D Mark II, two BG-E16 grips, and two Lexar 128GB CF cards for a big series of shoots coming up. I know Canon is probably going to replace the 7D2 with something newer this year, but the timing demanded it. I will probably sell the older 7D2 and grip once the successor cam is announced.

    It's not like camera equipment depreciates much (Speaking as someone who buys exclusively second hand bar batteries and cards)!

    QWERTZ layout German type cover for my Surface.
    Slip cover for said surface, for when I switch backpacks to one that doesn't have a laptop slip built in.

    I am under strict instruction (to myself, from myself) not to spend a god damned penny that doesn't absolutely have to be spent right now. When I move I need a new kettle, new coffee machine and new toaster. So I need all the monehs.

    However, these mesh coils go through batteries like there is no tomorrow. I have the batteries, just not the means to charge any more than two at once. Cue that ^. I should have got that ages ago tbh.

    I stocked up on liquid, coils, nic and everything else so that's it for me now.

    Yeah I have two already but they are only dualies. I have one here (home) and one at mum's, because it was usually the thing I forgot to bring over... So what I will do now is leave one at home and take the other one over so I can charge four batteries at once. I am going through 3 "lots" per day, so currently having to wait a couple of hours for one to finish. I've got some 3000 MAH Efest (like new) so I will just throw them into the mix :) These mesh coils absolutely eat batteries. I am using about 5% per puff now lol.

    However I have had the coil in over a week now and still good as gold. Doesn't taste as nice as it did but that is probably just me getting vaper's tongue. I've not had a coil last this long since I first started vaping.

    OK so I was naughty so sue me....

    [​IMG]

    They were £9.99. The arms on my chair have completely gone. Like, the gel is all split and nasty. I broke the chair the first week I got it lifting myself up on the arms (which was stupid, being a £1200 chair !) but I managed to fix that by binding paracord around the mech. However, the arms started splitting around a year ago and I contacted a company who refurbs this specific chair (Freedomscale Headrest) and they wanted £90. For two arm pads. I only paid £230 for the whole effing chair !!!.

    So, I am going to buy some spray contact adhesive and make those ^ permanent. I thought long and hard, and I really don't want to be spending £250 on a chair when mine still looks mostly new (the fabric etc).

    If I don't spend it, she will! :lol:

    This is actually the first thing I've bought with the PPI windfall - everything else recently, including the new monitor, came from ebay money.

    Bought this purely on a whim as I got lucky with an auction.

    It’s a HP ProLiant DL380p Gen 8 with a single Xeon 2665 and 64GB of RAM. I got it for the princely sum of $180 shipped. Easy flip for $350 or more. ;)

    I’m also debating keeping it... because it’s awesome. :D

    Careful with the proliant service packs on that beast. The last one inverted the fan speeds so it tended to sound like it was approaching takeoff. I can't recall if there was a separate patch for that problem after the last spp.
