    That is a True Sinewave UPS.

    Edit: Crap, it isn't is it.

    Should I change it?

    Edit 2: talked to @Judas on the phone, he said I should be fine with this UPS. :)

    Ok so I don't usually post food stuffs, but I just spent the best 100 dollars you can spend on snacks ever, ever. :D

    Edit: Three stars to whoever can point out why these snacks are so special this side of the pond? :p

    (note that I got multiple packs of each)

    First up we have probably my favourite out of all of it, Nuttikrust biscuits:

    [​IMG]

    Then we segway into some tasty Bakers Romany Cream Cappuccino cookies:

    [​IMG]

    After that we take a hairpin into some scrumptious Choc-kits (chocolate and vanilla bundle):

    [​IMG]

    Thereafter we backpedal slowly into some Bakers Boudoir Biscuits:

    [​IMG]

    As if that was not enough, we enter into the lovely world of some yummy OUMA Buttermilk Rusks Chunky:

    [​IMG]

    And without pause we are launched off the deep end into some McVities Dark Chocolate Digestive Cookies:

    [​IMG]

    And then we skiddadle slowly into even more Bakers Romany Creams - Vanilla Choc this time:

    [​IMG]

    Just when you thought you couldn't eat any more we have some Bakers Royal Creams-Shortbread Biscuits:

    [​IMG]

    Then to amp it up even more we have some Bakers Romany Classic Choc:

    [​IMG]

    Man isn't your mouth watering already, and here comes some Bakers Lemon Cream Biscuits to finish you off:

    [​IMG]

    And last but not least some Maynards Wine gums for you to chew on while you game:

    ^The treats above can not be had here in Canada, they are sold in Africa, Europe, Australia and Southeast Asia (some of them in different parts of those places). So yeah that is what makes them special. :)

    I opted for the XBOX version over PC this time. ONLY...because so many box stores are not acquiring PC versions in hard cover form. :(

    Perhaps the most beautiful TV I have seen in years.
    A bit weird a 43 inch TV has a code 49, but ok.
    Your son is lucky to have you as a father.

    Just a Heads up KD49XH8505BU is the size of the TV.... Which makes that a 49" TV :)

    I have a KD-43XE8396 Bravia that i use in my spare room for my ps4 & xbox1 and it plays game on that like a dream.

    Hope your son enjoys it also.

    Possibly actually the KD43XH8505BU, which is the 43" version on the same page.
    Great price for the TV! There are security concerns for Android TVs long-term because of the finite lifespan. Of course, the easiest way to secure it is to keep it offline and use whatever device is connected to it instead lol.

    Unrelated to TVs my new graphics card arrived earlier this week after waiting nearly two months so I was able to finish my build in its current form. I intend to liquid cool the GPU when suitable blocks are released.

    My largest capacity USB drive yet, the SanDisk 256GB Ultra Fit USB 3.1 Flash Drive, would have gotten a 512GB but this should suffice for the time being (also this thing is tiny):

    I've never done a big Black Friday thing in the past. But, I've become quite disenchanted with my nearly 3-year old LG Q7+ phone. So, today I went by Metro by T-Mobile to check on options for 5G phones. I ended up with the Samsung A51-5G phone AND an LG G Tablet. The tablet was on sale for $75 USD. It's HUGE compared to my Alcatel Tablet I've been using. The images here are from the 'Net....

    I still can't justify buying a tablet. But more power to you @Dyre Straits, enjoy!
