    Visiontek Mystery boxes are back

    I bought one of these and love it. I keep it in my backpack. Doesn't solve full size drive storage though. That could be done with any drawer though. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07SYPYH5M?psc=1

    Visiontek Mystery boxes are back

    Yep! I have the official dock which I think will turn into my living room dock. I don't need all these ports for my virtual machine. So this might just give me the opportunity to daily drive the thing as my personal desktop. Maybe.

    Anyone get their Steam Deck ordered?

    Yep. It's made me glad that I've collected games on steam for the past 18 years. I'm playing stuff I thought I'd never have time for. I'm not holed up in my office. It might ruin my enthusiasm for desktop PC hardware.

    Visiontek Mystery boxes are back

    Surprise use case for those USB-C docks! I run an unRaid home server. I have a virtual machine to which I normally pass through most of the host machine's motherboard IO. Instead I can free that up and only pass through the USB-C port and now I can have external monitors, keyboard, mouse, etc...

    Visiontek Mystery boxes are back

    They are essentially a USB video card as well as networking and audio. You install DisplayLink software and you get a bunch of monitors over USB-C. I like to use these sorts of things for my Chuwi Windows tablet. Dell stopped putting a decent range of ports on the laptops a long time ago so I...

    Visiontek Mystery boxes are back

    I got a $50 and a $20. If the dock works I might actually be happy. Every thing else is garbage and I don't really need a dock. Oh well! https://visiontek.com/products/visiontek-pro-xmn-m-2-nvme?variant=41156065624213...

    I have the Dbrand leather skin and screen protector (Edit: on my 512GB). They are fine.

    Further Big Price Cut on AM5 at Newegg, Amazon, B&H Photo, and probably others 7950x @ $550-$555 and 7900x @ $474

    I killed my 5950x earlier this year. I can't decide between that and the 5800x3D.

    What are you playing on your deck?

    I've been interested in this game for years. I can't wait for the release date; less than a month away!

    Nreal Air AR glasses

    I used them as a second monitor today while working on-site. You definitely need to take eye strain breaks if you read a lot, work with data, or a terminal. I personally don't have any issues with readability and if I do simply adjust the zoom slightly is enough to make the jaggies go away. My...

    What are you playing on your deck?

    I'm in my 40s. Anything that would be gained in PPI I lost naturally ten years ago. Most games I play either were made so long ago it doesn't matter or the UI doesn't work on a tiny screen for me. My back and neck aren't sore after even short play sessions because I can hold the controller at an...

    What are you playing on your deck?

    I feel weird about how hyped I am about these stupid things. I used to sit in my office almost all the time but I can hang out on the couch and game, watch youtube, whatever, and not bother anyone else. And I can look at them and see them and not interrupt whatever the fuck I'm doing. I would...

    What are you playing on your deck?

    Yep. Its like when you have too much light in a room with a projector. They come with a shield so you can black out the world around you if you prefer to use them that way. I find turning the lights down is more than enough. You can see the solid shield in this image below the nose bridges.

    I'm changing stuff through this method: https://www.reddit.com/r/nreal/comments/w8h52j/a_solution_for_locked_fps_of_the_steam_deck_in/ Edit: I don't think you really need to change anything unless you are EPICLY picky about things.
