I couple of weeks ago I upgraded our family computer. It's ten years old now, but it's had several upgrades over the years and was able to handle playing Skyrim was fairly high settings with dual monitors. A couple of years ago, I maxed out the amount of RAM the motherboard could take and I installed the fastest compatible CPU. I added a higher wattage PSU too. But it was showing it's age.

So I now added a new bigger WD hard drive, all new fans, new cables and a new DVD burner. I was going to add this even more beefy video gaming card but I didn't have a 6-pin PCI power plug to connect it. So I ordered an adapter plug and now it's time to get her done.

but at that particular moment in time...I was testing out a new cell phone.
I test products, mostly computer, cell phone & home electronics.
It can be anything from tracking your pet from your cell phone or testing out a Nest .

Not sure if you would consider this really "working" or not. But I am trying to talk the wife into me spending a hondo on a set of wheels that I like. Here's a pic.

Did you run into a plastic or rubber coating on that?

Oh yeah, there's a black plasti-dip like coating on it that just peels off.

If you just want to restore the finish (no dents), I recommend living it on and lightly sand it instead of taking it off.

Which is what I'm doing to the other side.

The last time I "showed her who's boss" we had a 6 hour fight. It's not worth that.
