Ibanez RG. Got .11 or even .12 strings on it. Can't remember exactly which. It's tuned down a half step with the low E string tuned down another whole step.


You playing nü-metal or something? :offended:

lol no, there was just one particular song I played with my band that required me to go low. We play mostly rock song covers ranging from the 70's up to today. Stuff like Queen, Pink Floyd, Aerosmith, RHCP, Genesis, Skunk Anansie, Guns N Roses, Muse or Black Sabbath.

In 2019 we did a live performance as part of an event to commemorate the 30 year anniversary of the fall of the Berlin wall. We played the Pink Floyd album "The Wall" (almost) in its entirety, which was really cool to do.

Re: What is new in your little world, well not new but old :smirk:

Certainly appears my 60inch Samsung has given up the ghost.

Just 7 years up on the wall :tear: so I now need to sort out whether to go LED/OLED/QLED...
I know everyone has an opinion but I would appreciate thoughts. What do I avoid?

NVM
Bought the LG OLED CX model and it is to be delivered tomorrow :D

EDIT: Next day :)
1. Still wait delivery...
2. Bummer, discovered the old wall mount hardware need to be lowered somewhat and the fixings on the new LG OLED are at the bottom of the panel :smirk: so I have enlisted a professional for the install...
3. Oh, and I am off for a few days, interstate :eek:

EDIT: Days later, returns from a great little drive :D south some 5 hours. No boarder closures :up: to contend with.

Easter here and we spent some time cleaning out our recipes to discover so many old, yes old recipes.
Here's the back of a magazine clipping (New Idea) with a crossword.
Note the date :eek: :eek: and before some of you entered this world.

Not new I grant you :D

Installed Q3 Arena on my Kids PCs (Age 8 and 13) and we started having death matches with a few other extended family members. Game skills came back quickly and also found my 8 year old has some insane rail gun skills.

I haven't been here in a long time so I figured I would catch up and say what's up?

They do, don't they.

Regards what's up, I'd say same old, same old. Relatively quiet here. Are you still into those 'special' sets of wheels? I recon you've changed to a new model once or twice, not to mention the modifications :D

BTW, welcome back "Giraffe }{unter" :)

Thanks, I still lurk from time to time. I've got my wheels set for now...

I have an 2005 R/T magnum AWD which I wanted from way back when it was first announced. Found a pretty decent specimen a few hours away and this is my Daily driver, does awesome in the northeast snow. https://www.instagram.com/p/CMz0NColbuU/

My Garage Queen is an 18 Widebody hellcat I've had her for 2 years as well. https://www.instagram.com/p/CKnUgGFlze-/
Done a lot of work to her during the Pandemic
Air suspension - https://www.instagram.com/p/CKiK_w5FsZN/
Working of getting the interior fitted with forged carbon https://www.instagram.com/p/CNbAlU0lMSI/
Engine Bling for now https://www.instagram.com/p/CKFuTKCFLmi/

I had some engine modifications planned for this fall that would get me over 900 to the wheels on pump gas, but with all the talk on new car regulations I'm holding off to see how this shakes out. It's pretty scary to see that the EPA wants to take away the ability for street cars to be turned into race cars.

Nice. I applaud people that really look after their wheels and you certainly do that :up:

Two sites I refuse to sign up to. Turns out instagram is actually one of the worst companies in the world to share your data with 3rd parties. They're pretty aggressive too with how much data they try to get from you. GPS, photos, personal details, financial purchases etc... it's all being recorded and sold on an open market if you're part of their social network.

Sorry guys from my end the images are visible without an account... I have some pics on my site as well http://www.workplaydrive.com/

In my hobby, Instagram and YouTube is a necessity to maintain my passive income. Between affiliate deals and sponsorships the deals include the use of Instagram, Facebook and YouTube to promote the brands I like. I earn money daily from these engagements which covers the costs of all modifications, upkeep and travel for my hobby.

Yeah that's understandable, I'm more annoyed I can't see it cause I love looking at your projects, overall great stuff in the past. That hellcat looks sick too, I'd love to be able to do the same level of work to my STI.

The STI has a similar presence in the aftermarket world, so many parts and options available. I almost picked up a beautiful WRX STI many years ago, but I walked away due to the sales guy being a dick. I can't imagine where my hobby would be today if I Got an STI vs the challenger...

I added a non social media gallery for each car
2005 Magnum - https://www.workplaydrive.com/bwg_gallery/2005-dodge-magnum/
2018 Hellcat - https://www.workplaydrive.com/bwg_gallery/2018-hellcat-widebody/

I guess the AMD Ryzen 9 5900X, a new CPU so ask, was a new MB required or does it just slip in the old?

Ryzen 9 requires an X570 motherboard.

I think it depends on the BIOS. AFAIK x570 is the only chipset made for Ryzen 9 and works out of the box.
