      Never again will I fly Spirit airlines. No organization whatsoever...

        I flew them only once, and that was enough: I've never felt so unsafe in a plane.

        It's great but I feel like less dramatic of an upgrade than go450 to gov2 was. It's definitely endgame for me with my new philharmonitors shipping today. Can you check yours for an issue I have? If I hold down apple remote volume up for a long time then switch to pressing vol down, it still goes up sometimes

        Similarly to purrin, I'm waiting for the release of ultrawides with more vertical pixels. Specifically I'm waiting for 5760 x 2160 monitors to hit the market before I change from my dual P2715Q setup but I really do want an ultrawide after coming to realize how little I utilize the full 'double' width. I could more than easily get away with 1.5x the width like on an ultrawide and save all that physical space.

        Very nice! I'm waiting on one with a higher refresh rate and at least Freesync up to 90Hz or so. And a fast IPS panel. The Asus MG279Q has me spoiled there. Just a matter of time!

      I had a private conversation about my build, I added you. Once I get everything purchased, I'll probably make a build thread about it.

      When are we getting a shoutbox? Kind of feel people are pointing to this when they make continuous profile posts.

        purrin usually has a lot on his plate, but one thing about purrin is if says he'll do something, he does. SO if he says we'll have a shoutbox, I am sure he will have it up as soon as he has time =)

        @MoatsArt and my first games came on single or double floppy disks XD Ironically, @velvetx, my Wolfenstein 3D was one floppy disk, and Wolfenstein Spear of Destiny was 3 floppy disks. Still have original retail boxes. Yes, my parents let me play Wolfeinstein when I was 4 ... and Doom when I was 5 ...
