Agree. If something is worth doing, it's worth doing right.

A lot of people use the the linnmon table top and adils legs from Ikea to make a desk like that. I think you can make and L desk like that for under $100 with that combo. They also sell a drawer that's the same height as those legs so it fits under the desk pretty well of you want some storage space too.

Nice, I have the 74" version. Mine isn't an L though. I just have one big counter top. I used an actual solid wood counter top since it was so long. I personally like it better than a L. I don't have two monitors, but I do have a 34" ultra wide and my PC on my desk with plenty or room to spare.

I know a lot of companies have made clear paintball masks, but why do people like them so much? I think they all look cheap and I have yet to see one that didn't stain or turn yellow

I believe it all started when somebody tried to market it on tv and realized that it's hard to connect if you can't see faces. JT made a limited run for the show, and they became popular because it's unique. Now companies are just riding that nostalgia wave because not everyone who wanted one, was able to have it.

And yea. I think they're ugly. but I am intrigued with the extra flexibility that comes with them.

Exactly this.

Anyone else not particularly shocked with the GI Sportz bankruptcy filing?

Not really. The more companies you control the harder it is to stay profitable. Especially, when your companies are competing against each other.

Zero percent shocked. Also not shocked they're calling it restructuring and business as usual rather than "time to have a fire sale on inventory, assets, etc".

I didn't look too deep into it, but I've also seen a lot of companies that are going under this year putting all the blame on Covid. That's sure part of a lot of business closures, but a lot of businesses are making it through this, too.

The one thing this industry never really learned is robust fiscal management. During the glory years in the 2000's the money went out as soon as it came in. There was never any cash accumulating and sitting there for when reserves would be needed. Taking on debt/loans is always going to be needed, but as this shows, cash is king. I suspect they won't go out of business right away but I don't think this is their first bankruptcy.

It seems that NOBODY follows the plan of having case reserves. It's really weird how businesses run that way.

Well, with some business owners, when you tell them hookers, blow, and whiskey aren't investments, they stop listening.

well I'm ****ed.

I replaced a door on my truck, and I thought i cleaned off all the black goo that holds the water shield on. Apparently I missed some on my clothing, and my wife is going to kill me because it's all over our clothing.
How am I supposed to get this stuff out? I can't just dump brake cleaner in my washing machine. Maybe I should try a degreaser? Would that hurt clothing?

Edit:
Turns out that dawn dish soap and a scrub brush takes it out. Got lucky!

I once got some on the exterior of my white car and it filled in the tiny scratches in the clear coat. I think it's the same sealer that's used around windshields.

God damn, 331 MPH and average of 316 MPH! That's pretty insane for a production road car.

So very heavily debating a secondary monitor setup, just worried how much processing power its gonna take up on my graphics card that can barely run stuff they way i want it as it is. Same monitor i have now, and i like it. Thinking about a second. Unless i got with a 1440 p one.

What are you wanting to do with a second monitor? Yo can't game with it very well, because the center of your screen will be in the area between monitors.
I have two monitors, and I dabbled with a 3 monitor setup. 3 monitor gaming would be cool for racing or flight games, but not much else.
