Sucks you can't just buy a 5950X at retail. Heck, I should be able to get $50 off retail at MicroCenter. That's where I got my i7 920 and i7 4790K for $200 and $250 respectively. But we live in bizarro times. And don't get me started on miners. Waste of power and waste of cards.

Still no luck?

Kind of hard for them to say yes to collectible boxes and no to listing like this one

Witnessed a police chase today. Was driving home southbound on 360 and I saw some (police) lights in my review in the distance. A little bit later a pickup comes speeding up to me in the far right lane shoulder. I was in the inside lane doing 80. I watch the truck zoom past me as he's exiting the highway. The cop was playing catchup. I used to love to watch COPS back in the day.

Gave my car an oil change today and then used some degreaser on my engine after I dropped off the oil for recycling. No leaks since I replaced the valve cover gasket last Saturday. Feels good!
