    Today I learned...

    TIL that Horseshoe crab blood is use to test for safe vaccines, as it's so sensitive to bacteria. Oh... and it's blue! https://www.nhm.ac.uk/discover/horseshoe-crab-blood-miracle-vaccine-ingredient.html

    Shpock vs Ebay?

    Guess Shpock has a bit of growing to do then. I bought some boxes from there a few days ago and the transaction seemed to go smoothly, so might try listing a few low value things. Just after I posted this thread, I got a £1 max listing fee e-mail so went with ebay this time!

    Shpock vs Ebay?

    I've been having a big clearout of my house this past few months and I've listed a lot of stuff on eBay, but I've got quite a few larger things to sell that will need collecting. Ebay was going to be my first choice, but I've seen Shpock appear more and more. I gave a lot of stuff away to the...

    Happy Birthday Ian

    It was a Sri Lankan curry made with mutton, I don't know what name it is, but it was amazing :drool:. Curried okra, green beans and potato too. Could eat it all day :D.

    TV Shows!

    Yeah she was a good character - I wonder if they'll recast her, or just write her out? I guess they could do the latter easily enough given the ending. I hope the Mandalorian is around for a long time to come!

    Who's had the covid jab?

    Great news @V_R - a relief for you all too! Let's hope that reaching the 15m point next week means that we can start getting back to normal in the not too distant future :).

    Parts for my new build

    Great setup! I love my Ryzen 3600, it handles anything I throw at it and I imagine I'll be using it for a very long time to come :). Will be interested to hear how you get on with FreeNAS. I ended up using UnRAID a few years back (now on synology), but I did enjoy a homebrew NAS.

    100Ah 12v Battery voltage under load

    Cheers @crazylegs, yeah I want to try and keep the battery in good condition for a long time, so will avoid discharging it past 50% :D.

    Best gaming headset for under £60

    Thanks guys :). I'll check that one out @Quadophile, although I think the USB option is a requirement for me as it makes things so much easier on my setup. @muckshifter, was this the product you mean, as the search bar shows one product and the product page another? It's within budget if I buy...
