    GTOmega Sport Chair.

    My last chair that I replaced with this was a cheap one of Facebook and I finally bit the bullet and bought another GTOmega chair.

    I had a GT in the past but the frame snapped in the seat pan, and basically my brother welded it up and it was fine until a I used it as a ladder to get in the loft one day and nearly broke my neck and snapped the back in half (I'm FAT!!)

    It's so good having a comfy chair again and one that will help to put my posture straight.

    Love it! That's a fair old chunk of copper in there, what CPU is buried within?

    Turns out I wasn't quite done with spending money today... Designed and ordered a new revision of my GBS-8200 SCART interface board:

    [​IMG]

    Opted for the swanky black solder mask because... well... it just looks cooler than other solder mask colours :hip:

    [​IMG]

    Pricing is still insane: £1.59 for 5x copies of the board (although there's another £10.57 in shipping & customs...).

    Yeh, PCB's are insanely cheap now! Basically never get it in the UK unless you need it next day! I really like white ones too!

    If you need it next day then you're going to pay through the nose no matter where you get it from! :hehe:

    Yeah they're cheap, but I usually solder these types of connector as well as crimping. The crimping is mostly strain relief rather than electrical connection, so as long as it can do even a halfway decent job then they should be fine.

    After much deliberation I've opted to go for the Alexa Studio, Should be a nice upgrade over built in monitor speakers for spotify or muffled MacBook speakers in clamshell mode.

    Prepare yourself for a flurry of useless smart home doodads when I receive this...

    My zbook has 32gb I can't access easily and another two slots >.> Not sure if it's four slots but it is configurable with 16 base, so it might be..

    Weekly shopping done (at Selgros), 240 Euros gone, food for a whole week plus some storable stuff (and maybe some 'oh, now that I'd love to try' stuff). Didn't meet more than five other shoppers. Doing your shipping once a week at 7am makes sense, I feel.

    The £16 for express delivery of the waterblock adapter is the most annoying part...
