well I went to put on my hat yesterday and the fabric on the top rivet thing was fried so I ordered a new one around 2:30-3 PM yesterday and since I live just like 2ish hours from the warehouse it was delivered with the mail today (like 18 hours from order placed to delivered). old one was WAY past due for getting replaced.

Just dropped off by Brown. A refurbished from an Amazon marketplace seller. Super fast delivery.

My 9 year old Acer is starting to throw BSODs and the fan is noisy. This one is a little smaller and I'll be losing the numpad but it's an i5, SSD and has a touchscreen. I hate win10 though and wanted to hang on to win7 as long as possible. Oh well. Now to transfer all my stuff and apps. IMG_20190206_093559.jpg

I used to have one of those a few generations ago. Could never get used to the little mouse/joystick gizmo in the middle of the keyboard though, it was just too weird to me. 👅 I've been thinking about upgrading my laptop too, not quite as far gone as yours was, but it runs kinda hot (have it sitting on one of those fan pads) and I maxed out the supported RAM (8GBs) a long time ago. I always go refurbished as well.

So far, so good. I'm on it now and it's wicked fast! Just getting used to Win10 is a PITA and all its settings. :mad:

I know what you mean about the red nipple thing. I really don't know why they still have them since nobody likes them. Years ago when they were IBM Thinkpads, that's all they had with no touchpad. This new touchpad is also very good. Very smooth and has a click-press thing under the whole pad. Very light compared to the old one too but a lot of that is from the size. Super quiet. I've always like Lenovo/IBM laptops for their build quality and durability. I still have some old IBM's kicking around.

Where are you at...I'm about 4 minutes from the main store.
North Georgia, about an hour north of the Perimeter, pretty much everything i've ever ordered has shipped out of the McDonough, GA facility, it's freaking massive, something like 240k Square Foot building which is like TWICE the size of my local Lowes.

my first laptop had one of those, much prefer the trackpad and touchscreen

Ah OK. I'm down the road from the head office in Ohio.

Couple sets of business cards. Vistaprint has good quality for the price.

Just looked at the tracking from ordering some new boots yesterday and it says they are out for delivery! Be pretty sweet if they really show up.

Another Fortnite t-shirt for my son, but this one has Marshmello on it...his two favourite things.

On Wednesday I received most of my parts ordered from Rockauto. Shipped by cheapo ground, came 2 days earlier than expected and still reasonable in time. Got ACDelco professional sway bar endlinks (front/rear), front sway bar bushings (ACDelco), rear bushings (Moog) all for the Trailblazer. For my GMC 1500 rez rocket: ACDelco EGR solenoid, O2 sensor, T-stat, knock sensor pigtail and cap/rotor/wires. Still waiting on the Delphi knock sensor.

Already installed the parts on my 1500. Will wait another 6-7 months for it to warm up in these parts to install the parts on the Tb.

Check out the size of the box....
Makes you wonder about the cost of the shipping charges, with that one!

As for me...got one of these today:
87488

(for those wondering...it's an adapter that goes into the transfer case of GMT-800 trucks - to eliminate 'pump rub'). I don't plan on installing it (for now)...rather, it'll be a 'carrot' I dangle in front of buyers' faces when they come to look at the 'old' Sierra (with a replacement t-case at the ready that will accept this part).

The one in the Sierra has the issue (might get some JB Weld for it, but it's known not to hold permanently) Rear case half is made of magnesium, which can't be repaired via welding (by anyone smart, I'm told)

If they pass on the opportunity...then I'll keep the extra case, put this in it, and sell it down the road. New ones are $1500; even a JY / salvage t-case is $500 around here. Either way...I win :wink:

New driver door handle for the truck. Cracked the hinge on mine trying to get a frozen door open a while ago and it finally broke recently. Still works but it is wobbly.
