    I am eagerly awaiting further news on this - it would be so good!

    Also, nice lid trim, @Gareth Halfacree . Personally, I'm going for the 'hairy student' look.

    Try picking your daughter up from primary school with a beard like mine, oh I got looks that'd curdle milk.

    Open trimmers, throw every attachment away, adjust trimmers to zero, no cares in the world.

    I convinced the missus to break out the grade four a month ago - I'm getting ready to go again.

    Mother nature is politely nudging me already, but I'm going to stay in full Nick Cave style denial. Unless I end up with one of those stupid little islands of hair top and centre.

    Trying to find a small Intel Z3x0 series board for less than £200 is a bit of a challenge these days.

    I took a punt on a £70 three slot small mATX z370 board on feebay - the potato quality pics on the listing left me expecting bent pins on the CPU socket, despite the seller assuring me it was fine.

    Anyhoo, it arrived today - four days earlier than expected, which is always nice - with no socket cover!! Surprisingly, the board looks absolutely pristine. I was expecting a dusty mess with pins pointing every which way - such is my expectation from ebay these days. I only want it to test memory speeds on non-k CPUs, but it looks like a winner. :)

    I was seriously considering buying some cordless clippers last summer as my hair was getting wild, but I literally couldn't as they were sold out absolutely everywhere. I was pretty annoyed as I knew I had a set of (wired) clippers somewhere in the house, but could I find them anywhere? Could I hell!

    Then they turned up out of the blue one day in a box of random stuff that I'm 99.9% I had already looked through in minute detail. Despite said clippers being nearly 25 years old, they still work just fine. Only slight issue is that the number 2 guard has been lost along the way but 3 is fine given I'm only leaving the house once a week to go to the shops :D Cordless would definitely be more convenient, though.

    As a baldie, taking Mrlongbeard's approach is one of the best things anyone can do. It's a bit of a weird transition from having some hair, but after a few days you get used to the look of yourself and then you ask yourself why you didn't do it sooner. It also generally looks a lot better than having inconsistent hair density in my opinion.

    If I have to put a comb through my hair then it's way too long. BZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZT. Job done.

    I had a massive thing about my hair when I was younger; I have a sizeable bald patch from a childhood injury, so I always kept my hair in a side parting to try and hide it. I'm not sure why but I stopped giving a f--- about it when I went to Uni, and I shaved it completely bald - and I mean completely bald. Like... with a razor. I've only taken it down that far once or twice, these days I usually buzz it all off with clippers about 4 or 5 times a year.

    I'm not on board the baldy train - simply because I've done it before, and my head is a very odd shape. Not in a low-self-esteem, only-you-notice-it-yourself way. In a, everyone-looks-twice way. I must've been dropped as a child or something.

    Same. Having a turban helps. But feels like false advertising when it comes off in the bedroom :hehe:

    48hrs after first covid jab (AZ). Apart from feeling tired and bit of a headache, nothing really to report.

    I have found a flat monitor do dad that doesn't spazz my eyes out.
    Today is a momentous day, I've only been looking on and off since 2006, but now where an oldie 17" Dell CRT sat resides a modest 24" curved jobbie running at an eye pleasing 144hz.
    It was always one of my theories that it was the low freqs (60hz) of flat screen monitors that caused me agro, but wiork took a punt and bought me this and after a week of getting used to it, it's here to stay, well until I can afford a 34" monster and a GPU to push pictures on to it.

    So happy dance day;

    If you can name the TV program off the top of your head I'd be impressed, if you used to watch it I'd be worried.
    Hell, I have no idea why I bloody watched it, well expect it was before the days of 1000's of channels
