    Well, let's hope - ran through a few files at random and md5sum'd 'em against their undeduplicated equivalents, a winner every time.

    At some point, though, I need to have a digital spring clean - there are Android 4.0 ROMs, Linux ISOs from 2011, all sorts in there!

    Ugh, I now the feeling but storage is getting cheaper and I prefer to just have folders within folders, all the way down to HOMAM3 ROMs, low bitrate mp3s and scanned documents from school.

    I gave my new baby her first wash since the purchase in mid February...

    I still need to get some LED replacement bulbs for the front as the lighting is very dull and disappointing on a $50k truck... but that can be fixed for $350 or so. :D

    In the UK at least most LED bulbs fall foul of the law. They're too bright and blind other drivers. So the crap OEM bulbs may be for legal reasons as I'm not sure where the U.S stands on that sort of regulation.

    LED bulbs as bright as you can get are fair play. Even if they cause accidents. And they cause a lot of near misses around here.

    The bulbs have been specifically designed to match the way my current bulbs are. There’s an entire website dedicated to it - Headlight Revolution - which test many different bulbs for many different cars. :)

    Due to that, it’ll have the same beam pattern as my current bulbs, and therefore isn’t an issue. :D

    I've gone to 3 monitors at the office as the 4k one I got last week decided to stop working when I got in this morning. 2 landscape and 1 portrait. Not sure how I feel about the portrait one yet.

    That how it is in Canada. Back in the day you could spot the police cars on the highway at night because they used 100W bulbs when all over vehicles were capped to 60W.

    Taking into account the monitors we review you'd all be surprised by the monitors I use at work. Thankfully I only use postgres for testing and we have a way of spinning up sample ones with fake data pretty quickly.

    Back when I very briefly had dual monitors, my main monitor was a 19" 1280x1024 TFT while the secondary was a "SoundMaster" 13" amber CRT. Man, I miss that CRT - it died a death beyond repair, sadly.

    These days it's a single 1920x1200 24"... 23"? I forget. Somewhere in that ballpark.
