Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel

30 bucks on Steam. I have 30 bucks, but I haven’t beaten 2 yet. If I get the new one, I won’t want to play 2 anymore. I have until the 22nd to decide.

If I needed a SD card

Amazon has Transcend flash memory products on sale. 32 GB for 11 bucks. I already have a Sandisk in my camera, think it’s 16 GB. Probably cost more too. I have a Sandisk in my 2DS too.

11 bucks is a good price. But it would just collect dust.

They also have a 1 TB SSD for $288. Out of stock though.

You could use the card like you would a USB drive. I already have a USB 3.0 card reader.

I just took a big dump btw.

Will stuff boot from that SD card? The Lexar thumb drive reboots when I try to boot something from it, show’s the boot menu, click enter and it reboots. I got Ubuntu booting on it once, whatever is on it now doesn’t boot. Either the thumb drive is bad, or not compatible with my VIA USB 3.0 hub or card. My USB 3.0 Sandisk has OS X on it, for my hackintosh.

I wonder if the Lexar thumb drive works on my hackintosh. To lazy to plug a wired keyboard and mouse in to see.

Review on the faster 64 GB one says to not use it as a USB thumb drive. Also says to not delete anything from it, reformat it in the camera after you copy everything to your computer.

I do the unrecommended and delete the images after I copy them. I read you aren’t supposed to do that before I read that review. I do it anyways, because I don’t care. It’s still fast.

Transcend 64 GB High Speed 10 UHS-3 Flash Memory Card 95/60 MB/s (TS64GSDU3) I should buy that in case I ever get a new camera that can record 4k, oh wait the price will be less by then for the card. Better wait on getting a faster card.

AC is fixed

I took the cover off and cleaned the filter off. I rinsed the filter off in the bathtub. Had to use a bucket because it’s to long to go under the faucet.

Look at that CPU temperature went down and the GPU only went down one degree though.

Maybe not completely fixed. Closed the window again, and it isn’t going down to 15C anymore. I was trying to get the cover on perfectly. Maybe it’s blocking something. Since it isn’t on correctly.

You can record on the NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV

You hold the home button down on the controller, then recording options popup and some other stuff. If I read the manual or searched on Google, I would of found the answer, I just assumed you couldn’t. Will it save the recordings to my computer? Probably not. So I’ll have fun trying to send the file to my computer.

I’ll need to delete it from the SHIELD too, only 16 GB of space, less because of Android.

Uploading to Picasa will increase your ping to over 900. Makes playing Titanfall impossible. Nice and the resolution is only 360p, instead of 1080p. No sound either.

Dishwasher works

Ran it earlier, checked it a while ago, no water in it. Instead of turning a knob, it has things you click. Easier then trying to turn it and land exactly on Normal. In six years I might need a new one again.

Funny the manager lady was trying to be friendly to me. I’m an asshole and said “yup”. No conversation.

How did she know I don’t have 500 bucks?

Sister didn’t ask me if I wanted to buy her gaming laptop. It only has a NVIDIA GT820M. Wait for the new AMD laptops, might have slower processors, but better video. Maybe some of them will have an Intel processor and a dedicated AMD video card. They will cost between $400-$700.

The screen resolution on the laptop my sister has is only 1366 x 768, no wonder it only has a GT820M.

It’s a MSI CX61. It was first available February 27, 2014 on Amazon. She bought it in January of this year.

I love my NVIDIA SHIELD

Best streaming device I ever purchased. Don’t care that it only does stereo audio, it’s plugged into my TV and then the optical out on TV is going to soundbar. I read on a review that the audio it’s using for 5.1 and 7.1 doesn’t work with optical. So an HDMI audio extractor wouldn’t fix it, it would be doing the same thing as the TV. You’d need HDMI on your soundbar or receiver.

I like my yamaha soundbar. I don’t know if yamaha has one with HDMI inputs. The Yamaha YSP-2500 Sound Bar with Bluetooth and Wireless Subwoofer has HDMI inputs, it’ll cost you a grand though.

Getting a new dishwasher

Guess they didn’t want to pay $170 to fix the one I have. I think she said it was 6 years old, so it’s probably better to replace it. The dishwasher is coming tomorrow. If they fixed it, it could break again. Eventually that’ll add up, and it’ll be more then if they just replaced it. I’m guessing the big boss lady Marge made the decision. They haven’t noticed my AC not working very well. I can still sleep at night, so I probably won’t tell them. It might just need to be cleaned, which I can do myself.

Sure enough they came again while walking dog

It was almost 11:30 am, so I thought they wouldn’t be coming until after 12 pm, the office is closed at 12 pm until 1 pm. Plenty of time to walk the dog. Sure enough they called while walking, didn’t answer it, they left a message, that doesn’t make a lot of sense if you read the transcript. Sounded like they wanted to fix something, so either the dishwasher or the leak. Or maybe both.

Update
I called them back. Said the maintenance guy is coming. So probably to fix the leak. Not sure when the dishwasher is getting fixed. Unless he has the part and is doing that too.

Update
The leak should be fixed. That means I can use the kitchen sink again. I guess they had to order a part for the dishwasher.

Leak under kitchen sink

I’m guessing the maintenance guy didn’t put the pipe back together tight enough. Don’t think there was a leak until after he did something. The dishwasher repairmen came today, they have to get a part, not sure when they are coming back. They noticed the leak, that’s how I know about it.

Personally I would fire the maintenance guy.
