My new 12GB/256GB Oneplus 8 Pro was just delivered.

Time to prep for migration from the Oneplus 6 and decide which rom to use.
Another of the same though mint condition used with original accessories and extras including the wireless charger and earbuds from swappa for mom is also scheduled for delivery today.

I received two of these brass whistles today.

My old whistle quit working, and this new whistle is smaller and much louder than my old whistle.

I never learned how to whistle, so that's why I thought it would be important to have a whistle on my keychain.

Received a Maxpedition baseball cap for about $7 including shipping (local shop).
I believe it’s a new old stock but still worth the pennies!

When you entered BLF, you knew this is an asylum. But after some time, your mind tricks you into thinking this would be a normal place to be. Unheard

Here are the instructions on how to take my laptop apart.

I hope everything goes well!

I tried to fix my laptop, and I killed it!

In step 8 (see above link), I tore one of the ribbon cables that connects the motherboard to the keyboard.

I put my laptop back together, but now my laptop will not turn on.

I contacted a local computer repair company, hoping they can fix my laptop.

If they cannot, I might be in the market for a new PC.

I brought my laptop to the local computer repair company.

It's going to cost $150-$170 to fix it.

(If they cannot fix it, there is no charge.)

I gave them the okay, but I'm feeling pretty poor right now.

Bought 4 new tires for wife’s SUV, and within 5 miles and 10 minutes of leaving the shop, I punctured one of them – it’s beyond repair. Sad

If that wasn’t bad enough, the shop is unable to get a replacement for a week, and we are going on a road trip in 2 days. Some luck…

Because I like big lights, my flashlightical views lean heavily toward both the extreme bright and the extreme heft.

Finally got my Vanquest Trident 32 GEN3 back pack! For the price of this pack it better hold up for the next 10 years!

I ordered this webcam so that I can do Zoom meetings on my desktop (where there is more privacy.)

Well that sucks! Were you able to go on your road trip?

I’d rather use my flashlight around the house than turn on the lights.

Yes. Had to do the road trip on winter tires instead – almost 2,000 miles going south in warm weather on soft winter rubber is far from ideal, but I had no other choice.

How is the audio quality when using the built-in mic?

I have an older Microsoft desktop HD webcam, and people always complain that there is echo when I use the built-in mic while using the laptop’s built-in speakers. The mic picks ups the sound from the laptop’s speakers creating echo.

It hasn't shipped yet, but it's supposed to be here on Tuesday.

I'll let you know once I test it out.
