    a gigabyte gtx1060 6gb - ocau's loss is my gain at a bargain price, almost brand new https://www.gigabyte.com/Graphics-Card/GV-N1060WF2OC-6GD-rev-10-11#kf matches my other components to perfection, so i am now pimped to the max for an older build : i7-2600k 4.1ghz @1.22v / megahalems / gigabyte z77-d3h / samsung 850 evo 250 / 2x8gb G.Skill ares @ 2133 cl10 / asus xonar d2 + klipsch promedia ultra 2.0 + ath ad700 / Lian Li PC-A17B & corsair hx750i & noctua fans / gigabyte gtx1060 oc 6g / dell u2515h +120 core / +160 vram - boosts to over 2ghz gaming without any voltage tweaks, and maxes out at 72c or so with minimal fan noise, compared to the gtx760 oc it replaced, which was silent enough in 2d, but revved under gaming quite noticeably only pulls 120w, needing a single 6 pin auxiliary power cable (the 769 needed 6+8) rise of flight at 1440 fully blinged up is beautiful to behold, and i am having a hoot replaying crysis 2, while dishonored 2 is waiting for it's turn i'm really pleased with my buy

    how crap is this government ?

    they only a few days ago extended the opt out period for "my health record" to november 15 (from oct 15) has that been widely announced by the feds ? about as loudly as the original closing date, and details of what staying in means they must think the majority of the public are idiots oh, wait.... they are sadly pretty accurate in that assumption

    Do own many things that others wouldn't?

    probably my entire collection of flying things, and then there's all the necessary tools for old school production : razor blade plane / balsa stripper / and many more too weird to explain then there's all the paraphernalia to control them - radios / speed controllers / motors / servos / dinky connectors and whatnot just a small selection :

    don't want to make you paranoid, but...

    yep, but as a medico i feel obliged to act on things that affect my patients, because protecting their well-being is my professional duty, but it's the reason i decided to become a doctor in the first place so it's really just an extension of "first, do no harm"

    don't want to make you paranoid, but...

    there's a difference between naivety and passive capitulation my track record against major bureaucracy so far is scruffy = 2 , others = 0 so i am quite inclined to go the throat in whatever way is effective when something strikes me as so obviously wrong that i can't understand why there isn't a major revolt

    don't want to make you paranoid, but...

    wanna get really annoyed ? read this link : https://threadreaderapp.com/thread/1027059296784146437.html This is even more problematic for people who choose to not have their record "kept" in a universal repository, and suggests that opt out is in fact not honoured if a single piece of data is inadvertently uploaded, which would trigger the record "open". i've already complained to my professional college and asked for them to confirm it's truth if it is, i'm spitting chips what part of "not at all, thank you" means "yes, if you get a chance" ? that's really fucked up

    What's on your mind?

    seriously considering getting one of these, though a t-shirt is more my style than a trucker's hat
