    Schnitzel with noodles - what made you smile today?

    I play in 60fps! I stream in 60fps! All! At! Once! POWER! UNLIMITED POWER!... Okay, maybe not unlimited, but it turns out that the new CPU paired with my reliable GTX970 can run Battlefield V on High/Ultra settings, and render a 720/60 video stream at the same time!

    Microsoft logic: have you upgraded your Win7 to Win10 for free when you had the chance? Have you expected us to register that and provide you with that magic "digital entitlement" majiggerig? HAHAHAHAHA *fruitcage* YOU. Turns out I had to punch in my Win7 serial to re-activate Win10 after motherboard replacement. That is nuts.

    And of course things had to go tits up and my Windows license cannot be transferred to the new system after motherboard and CPU upgrade. Despite the system being installed on the same goddamn SSD that I plugged into the new motherboard. Weirder still, my Microsoft profile claims that all is fine and dandy. I mean, *fruitcage*, I have two separate Win10 digital licenses, one for my laptop and another for my desktop, and they do have an option to transfer the license over to the new hardware in case of upgrade, but right now, it doesn't work and Windows itself has no idea why. Erroneous Error: Nothing Wrong Happened.

    I blew Ł500 on a computer upgrade. Turns out, my i5 3570 wasn't enough, so now I'm upgrading to a i7 8700. Paired with the GTX970OC, it should be enough for most games, and I will be able to stream them too (after recent driver updates, the streaming got kinda pissy, and Anthem is awfully optimized).

    Anyone still around from the old days?

    I'm still here, although I haven't heard any exclusive news for years. Not that I'm interested any more, I'm mostly chairsofting and collecting props these days.

    Airsoft Stuff You Just Bought

    Well, folks, I seem to have forgotten to post this thing: The BRRRT. It's an APS NotGlock with greebles and a sight rail, ingeniously slapped together on a shoestring budget. Now I just need a CO2 cartridge.

    Colt M45A1..Which one to buy?

    Seconding the R27, mine needed a little hop-up adjustment, but otherwise outlasted a crate of loaner KWA Glocks during an IPSC event.

    And the IT systems at work went bonkers. So I'm sitting here until 5pm with nothing to do.

    I am tired. It's apparently a tiring day as people in other departments seem sluggish too. I'd crack open an emergency energy drink, but I have no idea when the burnout will hit and last thing I want is staying awake at 3AM.

    Why oh why does APS have to use their own silencer adapter standard? Of course it's a full milimeter wider on the gun side, to boot. Also, the dollar exchange rate skyrocketed while I wasn't looking, so you can safely assume that sourcing a WE or KJW Glock 18 from HK was out of the question, particularly considering that I got that APS thinger for under 100 quid.

    Schnitzel with noodles - what made you smile today?

    Well, lads, I went on a shopping spree, got myself one of those APS NotGlocks (by the way, what internals are they based on, TM/WE?) and some extra gubbins (that underbarrel greeble styled after Kriss Vector and a top rail) for a cyberpunk-themed project. Good thing that the gun has an internal 11mm thread in the barrel, so I can use the short can and adapter I got back when I bought my P228. Now I'm considering a red-dot for it. I intend to bash the Vector greeble and the top rail together for more style and functionality, but AliExpress has those flip-up dot sights with Glock mounts for slightly less than the RIS version and I'm torn between style (at the risk of rocking the sight to *suitcase* with CO2-powered full auto of death) and functionality (that involves a lot of elbow grease, as I'll need extra supports bolted under the side rails to hold the Vector greeble and the top rail together). Also, I'm doing pretty fine in COD: Blackout. Once again I found a good Battle Royale game for me (after those dipweeds from Hi-Rez ruined Realm Royale by removing character classes).

    So I was looking for Glock compensators. The one I like costs $75, mounts on the spring guide... and it's for real steel. Reminds me of that time when I was considering sourcing that Kel-Tec folding rifle stock (SU-16 was it?) for a WE PLR-16 related project (because admit it, a suppressed SU-16 SBR build would look hella cool). I mean, I managed to source a RS cylinder axis screw and nut for my Tanaka SAA, and it works, but there's a difference between "some screw" and "half a gun" to the jobsworths at customs office.

    E&L - QBZ-95

    Now if you excuse me, I will scream and flail incoherently all the same.

    Nothing new, same thing happened in the original RDR.

    Arnie's get together for a game topic!

    Does anyone play the COD Black Ops 4 battle royale mode? I find it pretty decent.
