    Recently bought a MINI ES121 electric screwdriver:

    [​IMG]

    Satisfyingly hefty CNC'd stainless steel, motion controlled, 4mm hex bit fitting, rechargeable Li-ion battery, OLED display, customisable firmware with variable speed and angle control settings. It looks like a sonic screwdriver; it feels like a sonic screwdriver. I find myself looking around the house for things to screw (er… :worried: that came out wrong).

    Motion controlled? Yup: you press the single button and either angle clockwise or counter-clockwise and it will spin in that direction to fasten/loosen the scews. The further you angle, the faster it spins. OLED shows operation, battery status and control settings.

    I figured if i'm going to do my first fully scratch build in best part of 5 years, I might as well do it properly!

    Christmas bonus will be spent on a Patriot VPN100 SSD (capacity depending on what is on offer at the time, but most likely 1TB so I can get away with just the one internal drive). Still not decided on CPU yet - part of me is saying "just pick up a dirt cheap 2600/X to get up and running and upgrade to a 3700/3800 this time next year", but another part of me is like "or just get a 3600 now and know it'll be good to last 2-3 years right off the bat!"...

    I'll see what the January sales say!

    If LEGO had had that stuff when Star Wars first came out (I was 12 at the time), I would have been all over that!

    Finally (re) bitten my HEDT bug with a i9 7980XE:

    [​IMG]

    Managed to snag one from CeX for around half of what the 10980XE seems to be retailing for. Got it up to 4.3Ghz all core on my Rampage VI Extreme with a quick and dirty bios fiddle. It will go higher but I really need to play with the voltages. Left at "auto" with 4.4Ghz all core MCE enabled (or whatever it gets called on X299) and it hits 109C under a 280mm AIO :eeek:. I knocked 20c off of that with my 4.3Ghz overlock and voltage at 1.1v.

    Oh but it does hit 10k in Cinebench R20 so that makes up for it... :grin:

    Overall board and CPU for less than a 3950X.. can't really complain there.

    Pretty successful run on ebay.

    DS412+ and another 16gb of RAM. I don't really need the RAM, but it will fill the slots and that'll shut the nagging voice up.

    It will use all it can as cache for whatever you don't "need", so it's not a total waste.

    I spite of using only 1.5GB for services on mine, I still have an itch to throw 32GB in there, so know what you mean.

    Ahh, the RAM is for the desktop not the NAS. The 412+ can only support 2gb (Officially the CPU supports 4gb - Across two channels. The board only has one, and that seems to be the root cause of problems for users who have tried 4gb), and frankly the amount of work needed to go from 1 to 2 gb doesn't appeal - It won't be running anything like PLEX. Much like the two bay it's replacing, it'll be a fairly dumb "Here's some files" setup.

    Although if I had a mo-biggerer NAS then I might be interested in doing fancy stuff with PLEX and iSCSI. But I spent less than a quarter the price of a new fancyschmancy one on this, so for my use case it's all gravy, and any homelab stuff I do is going to be limited by it being based on NUC's and them having a single ethernet port, so fancyschmancy-fast stuff starts to lose its luster before it even starts.

    Olight S30R Baton III
    . I'm a big fan of Olight, and normally carry a S2R Baton on my belt. A while back my eldest daughter took a shine to it, so I bought a second. Now my youngest wants to be just like me and her sister and has co-opted that one, too, leaving me bereft. So, upgrade time. It's basically the same torch, except it has a slightly larger battery (3500mAh to 3200mAh) and a larger head which sets the LED further back into the reflector and adds a lens. The result: it's technically the same brightness as the S2R, but has a longer throw (at the cost of a hot-spot in close-up stuff).

    Added bonus is it comes with the magnetic charging dock I'd been eyeing up anyway, which will work with the S30R plus the two S2Rs. £50, down from ~£70-ish. Not too shabby, with the charging dock and 3500mAh battery included.
