    For anything (shoes) sport (even remotely) related, Adidas is my number one choice. Great build quality and comfort.

    These are very comfortable indeed. And are also a replacement for my Nike's that are splitting at the inner side by the big toe on my left foot, that have not lasted six months and the sole is not worn. Just not happy at all.

    I've also found that Puma makes -extremely- good quality shoes, I have been using a pair as my daily drivers and they have lasted me about 2 years already and still look good as new. The tread under them is still thick too.

    not the biggest Adidas fan, I must confess (shock admission from the guy with 50 odd pairs of KSwiss...)

    but I like those :)

    love me a Puma or 20 too

    you want comfy trainers btw; NB's ;) not the prettiest, but a good pair of NB shoes will be the nicest feeling trainers you ever put on your feet

    Which set did you finally settle on? Just curious. Or, did I miss it?

    I don't often buy things but after working for a while (and before I buy a bigger bike) I thought it's time to sleep better.
    I currently sleep on a mattress on the ground, so I bought a bed and stuff to wrap up my mattress and duvet/pillows:

    However, NZ handles ridiculous prizes...
    The bed, 2 duvet sets + 2 fitted sheet + 2 flat sheets= NZ$1700. That's 1200 US$ :O

    4.4GHz stable on Corsair H110i but temps getting close to 90C under load... so backed down to 4.3. But nice to see there will be a solid 4.4... possibly 4.5 or 4.6 when I get this in a proper water loop :)

    i've been fiddling through various 2nd hand suppliers... and there is a E5-2697 that i might be able to snag for a about $500 dollars....... 12 cores with 24 threads.... and there are a few people reporting that even in the first gen 2011 x79 boards.... you can get a nice overclock out of them with stock voltage if you're lucky.

    They're definitely good value for money.

    I would be interested to hear what overclock you get from it.

    My Asus Rampage V Ed 10 is arriving in the morning :D

    I just successfully completed installing one of these at our house. It's a NEST Thermostat controller that can be controlled from anywhere via an Internet connection and using the NEST app on a device with Internet connectivity...

    EDIT: FWIW, I've had to Edit/Update this image twice now. For some reason, it gets deleted to just showing the name.jpg. ???
