    Yeah, the K3, as it fit everything I was looking for and even had some nice-to-haves that I didn't expect to find.
    Have you had a look at this? https://github.com/Kurgol/keychron/blob/master/k2.md
    I know it's for the K2, but I imagine they're not all that different from each other.

    I did not - I'll give it a shot, ta!

    EDIT:
    Boom - simple as "echo 2 | sudo tee /sys/module/hid_apple/parameters/fnmode", and now the Function keys work fine. Nice one, @yuusou! I'll stick that in the config so it applies on boot, job's a good 'un.

    £68.99 - outrageous bargain. Was £83 when I pressed add to basket, £14 knocked off in basket. Magic basket discount strikes again. It's heavy and sturdy and will hopefully stop me knocking the new camera over.

    It's not for me. One of our team mates is down. Every time we play PUBG his rig crashes and the frustration finally kicked in last night for both @Arboreal and I. More so than the poor sod who spends four hours every night trying different drivers etc when it's pretty clear his rig is screwed. So Tre says he will loan him the Ryzen gear above, so I bought a case for it. It would be a bit awkward leaving a load of parts out on the drive during lockdown lol.

    Wasn't the cheapest, but tbh having owned a couple of Jonsbos before the quality is quite astonishing for the price. That was £48 inc with DPD.

    Oh hush, you. I'm now hoping they keep the other one aside so I can recoup some of the expense.

    Updated my little 7 inch monitoring LCD with a portable 14" 1080p touch screen, not even had a chance to use it on the PC yet, mainly for my phone, its a bit OTT size wise for my setup but has uses as a travel monitor/second screen generally, 3 inputs 2 usbc and 1 mini HDMI, will pass through power to Switch and Phone and having a touch screen kicks up the Android Desktop Experience for my Samsung to the next level, makes using the phone a lot nicer when working on the desktop PC as I don't ahve to switch to keyboard mouse etc, its just there on screen, sure I can use dex and have the phone in a window on my desktop but it is not as convenient as I have to switch away from other things I am working on.

    Its wasn't as cheap as I would like but no regrets its a wimaxit I won't say much else it is covered in the vid below for anyone interested, but its awesome well apart from audio, bit rubbish ( how can something this size perform worse than my phone) but I mainly use headset or a bluetooth attachment as I did on the 7inch, it is usable audio just doesn't have full bass etc, think cheap ass laptop.



    Messy Desktop shot, it doesn't block screen in use, just angle of photo

    I started with something much cheaper, a 7" non touch but once I had it I discovered it had more uses for it beyond just as a monitoring display, so thought I'd step it up after the 7" failed, my small one was something like 40quid you can get cheaper smaller touch screens for little more than that, great for a casual browsing etc.

    With the smaller ones be sure to check native res as some of the ads say 1080p but actually are only capable of receiving 1080p and do so over a much lower res like 1024x600 which might be fine if you just want to run some monitoring widgets but if you want clear 1080 playback then not so much.

    Such a shame that DRM is ruining the experience a little for me via when used on the phone as some of the media apps won't play on an external screen, I really don't understand that logic, you can do external display for sky and amazon on PC but not on android.:oldconfused: DeX mode is such an nice experience marred by these sort of things.

    Just scored an absolute bargain on a Spyderco Resilience. One that I have been after for a good while but always balked at the cost in the UK vs what I see it for sale at in the US. This one is second hand and has a few signs of use, but at only £40 I'm happy:

    GTX 770 Founders Edition

    Needed to replace the 6870 I’d bought without considering max res it could handle. This should suffice and I got it in a trade with a friend so worked out pretty good for the both of us.

    Everything’s shaping up nicely for a cheap build... the temptation to blast out the mobo, cpu, ram for a Ryzen setup is all consuming but I must behave!

    for now.

    A couple of bottles of Woodford's Bitters.
    Damn my SiL to hell for buying me one for chrimbo and me taking a liking to it, I'll never be able to look myself in the mirror knowing that the odd bourbon with bitters and ice is rather nice. :oops::oops:

    Finding my current Box Mod with a single battery just not lasting long enough for my liking.

    [​IMG]

    Dual 21700 batteries should last me much longer. Picking up a new tank once I have used the coils for what I have right now.
