    I recently did the maths on my most played games and let's me say it's shocking. According to these calculations the three games I've put in the most hours are: quake 3/Live 3000 hours, Diablo 2 8000 hours, Counterstrike betas to source 12000 hours.

    20 hours.... :lol:

    cheers gents, I'm sure I can track down something similar here. Using some of those 'Neewer' continuous lights at the moment, looking for an upgrade but hard to decide between strobes and continuous...

    The Viltrox lights make great worklights as well, just ask Adam Savage:-



    (He uses the L116T)

    More evidence that Adam Savage is the epitome of 'mad scientist' :D ; he's openly said that he has ADHD-type behaviours and that he all too often thinks way faster than he can put his thoughts into actions.

    That aside, his videos are always fun to watch.

    My only problem with watching his one day builds is that I invariably come away with a list of tools I want, or things I want to build that don't necessarily have anything to do with anything I'm interested in.

    I don't much care for the LOTR stuff, but you better believe I have the laser cutter files for making a Nazgul gauntlet stashed away in my projects folder..

    With how much other stuff is RGB'd these days, it's the next logical step.

    Apparently this is finally arriving today. Ordered on the 22nd; money taken on the 7th; arriving on the 12th. If I'd bought it from Amazon it'd have been about a fiver cheaper and delivered the next day - but you get an extension to a three-year warranty if you buy direct from Nokia/HMD/Digital River.

    EDIT:
    In-hand now. Bit bigger than my old Huawei P9, but it still fits in my trouser pocket - just about!

    Since the demise of sony's compact phones, I've had a hankering for a Nokia, pretty much the only people now who make anything that will fit my dam postman pat hands.

    The thought didn't even cross my mind haha, I'm developing an air quality monitor so the RGB will display air quality, humidity, c02, wifi connection, and crap like that :)
