    Yeah, I knew what was coming as the pre-event discussion left nothing to the imagination...

    Some just freaked out though.

    Yeah. I can see that.

    There were a couple people who were completely nonfunctional from OC. I'm not sure if their masks just didn't work or they are just more susceptible, but their eyes closed and would not open for a while.

    So, the xh35 and new m600-whatever show me surefire is catching up (and probably still being generally better) on WMLs.

    The new m600 is going to happen. I can deal with the m300 on my shockwave just fine, which means I could use one more log gun light (or two).

    The xh35, otoh, kind of annoys me. I want it. But the reason it doesn't fit existing holsters appears to be the switches at the bottom. And considering that I will literally never turn the strobe on or switch it to low mode...I'm wondering if there's a forthcoming "not stupid" version...

    Switches are stupid........... I hate that Olight uses 2 on the new tac light. One tailcap clicky is enough. Duh

    Wonderful. Jack and Ronnie are getting along really well. Jack still hasn't gotten a case of the zoomies, so it seems like that might not happen. Which is kind of sad. He was REALLY fast before.

    But they definitely like each other. And she's a little protective of him, which supports my theory of what happened.

    I'm honestly not aware of anything like it. Some of the information is available online, but the interaction and experience is awesome. It wouldn't be an easy class for most people.

    I took two deer this morning.

    Also, compared stories of GA, hunting in Arkansas feels like cheating.

    I'm looking forward to the tasty.

    So, the deer are delicious. I didn't do much of the gutting/cleaning, but I at least watched the process and have a general idea. A friend and I butchered the meat I brought back, and I have a lot more respect for butchers now.

    In other news, I found some 00 Flight Control. So, that's cool.

    And I'm super excited about the new Surefire Scout lights. 1200 lumens on a rifle sounds amazing. And I happen to have an open spot for one as soon as I get around to it.

    And, pretty much, life has gotten simple and boring.

    Firefox screwed up their add-ons with the latest update, so I switched to vimb, which seems amazing so far. Some of the anti-tracking stuff isn't there, but there's probably a way around that.

    Where did you find the 00 Flight Control? I've been looking off and on for about two months. I found it in stock online but the shipping is outrageous.

    This local place called Adventure Outdoors. It's....not a great shop. The employees tend to be dicks (and the owners are too according to rumor). But, they're the ones around Atlanta that have "everything" (lots and lots of guns, lots of ammo, etc.. No real gucci cool-guy gear).

    I'm still looking for #1, since almost everything I've seen shows a pattern I'd like a little better in my tac-14. But, it'll do just fine for the purpose of that gun.

    Sounds like those owners run the place near me too.

    So, I finally decided I actualy wanted to DJ again (first time since before we moved in 2015). Well...my MBP is dead. So, I've spent today moving my hackintosh from it's desktop case to a rack case that I've had sitting around almost as long.

    Well....stuff doesn't run on the OS X version that was installed.

    Fortunately, it seems like the hardware will run High Sierra, and it seems like the software will run on it too. And it seems like the installer might actually work, once I remembered that (for reasons I've never understood), it requires verbose boot to work.

    Hopefully, I"ll have some pics of it running within a day or two. This has been one huge PITA.

    ETA: Apparently the after-install setup is weirder on HS than ML. I can't get it to go above 1024x768 resolution, and it's kind of wonky whether or not network works. I also haven't gotten a boot loader to install correctly (though I can boot it off USB).

    The thought crossed my mind that wanting this primarily for DJing, I could just save up and buy hardware. Except that it's around 9 grand to replicate what I can already do with software.

    If this thing doesn't show some more progress tomorrow, I might just buy a copy of Windows 10 and see how that is.

    IT WORKS!!!!


    [​IMG][​IMG]

    Had a quick play without really organizing music or configuring things. It still seems to work. Nothing expensive seems to be having problems (knock on wood...hard...that mixer isn't made anymore).

    Also, I forgot how freaking loud my mixer is...the thing will clip the shit out of the sound card I'm using to pass through to my speakers. Though, now that I think about it, it might be treating all XLR inputs as mic level instead of line despite how the switch is set....that's why those adapters were in that box....

    It's going to take a while to get things back (I have backups, but it might be worth a fresh start to make sure my library is consistent).

    AND my cheap USB switch works, which means I only have to use one mouse and KB. Video switching will be more of a PITA, but I don't think I really care.
