    Oh, this one paid off and then some! It would’ve been profitable even if they were all dead. :D

    I love when a plan comes together... xD

    The colour labels for my Dymo printer have arrived, and now I'm amusing myself by printing various logos from sci-fi franchises:

    Made enough money to move into a higher tax bracket, which is a bit bittersweet, but still awesome overall.

    Now I just have to make sure my will remains strong and I don't do something silly, like advance my car-buying plans by a year...

    It’s a Maximus VII Hero, MSI Z97 G55-SLI and there’s a Z87 Sabertooth Mark S in the bunch that all work. Profit!! :D

    The wife wants me to tidy up...

    The sad part of it all is that’s only what’s above the bed, not beneath it in storage containers. :D

    Shipping it that way would cost a fortune and even more so when the tax grabbers decide to latch on to it. :(

    It cost me $35 to send two SSDs over to Sam and then he got whacked with the customs fees which was another £30 (I refunded him that part) ... it’s a damned rip off.

    Dat Sabranco....me likey :grin: There will be a white ITX board for me one day....

    It always seems to me that quoted shipping to the UK from the US for Ebay items seems really high; sounds like you've found it actually expensive - shame.
    Potentially duty & VAT on top really leads it on.

    Just shift some of it and show willing, and all will be well with the 'management'! Works for me

    ehh. That's pushing it a bit. I make countless mistakes. For example, I electrocuted myself today shorting out a motherboard power on pin because i held the metal part of the scissors not the rubber bit. One of the most painful things I've ever had happen to me and I can't even work out why because i don't even think that much energy runs through it.

    How on earth did you hurt yourself doing that? It’s a 5v rail (as far as I know) and has no real amperage behind it. Impressive... xD

    I suspect i had a bunch of static charged on me from being in the room for so long and that was part of it plus the shock factor as I wasn't expecting it. I'm honestly as baffled as you. All i know is is bloody hurt... but the motherboard did turn on.
