The computer parts supplier I infrequently write reviews for contacted me last week asking if I was willing to review a PC case for them. I hadn't heard from them in nearly a year and had presumed the program was shut down due to covid and the price inflation currently rampant in the PC market. So I said yes, and a few days later a 15kg behemoth of a case arrived, and a further email saying they had forgot to send the included PSU and that is following. Yesterday it arrived, weighing in at a further 3kg. Investigation shows me that this particular case and PSU retails at just under $400. Not an amount of cash I would throw at a case/psu combo but you know some people do. Anyway got some PC building to do :)

New "ink", still to be coloured. Red for the dragon, black (or possibly red) for the lettering.

Left arm.


Right arm.


Not renouncing my heritage, just embracing the new...

You have the "Z", "P", and "D", may I suggest Zaphod?

If it had started with P20 rather than P18 you could have called in "Mazepin"...

I don't usually name my cars before I've learned a bit more about the personality. Current one is the one exception, that had to be the Sidewinder.

Well hawdeehaw... Also, no. The Sidewinder Sleeps Tonight was playing on the radio when I stuck in the key for the test drive. Meant to be, basically...

It would be really pedantic to point out that the song in question uses the spelling Tonite, and so I won't do it.


But since we're on replacement automobiles, I have finally identified the automobile which I shall buy to replace Jürgen. That was originally meant to happen in summer 2019, but I decided there was another year in Jürgen. Then it was going to be summer 2020, but there was other stuff going on to make that complicated - while in summer 2021, I couldn't find the one I wanted.

Jürgen's replacement is also from Stuttgart, also black (as far as I'm concerned, cars of that particular make have to be black), just ten years younger.

His name is as yet undecided. I suppose he could be Jürgen II since Herr Klopp hails from Stuttgart just as Herr Klinsmann did - but Herr Klopp is only three years younger than the part time American, spent most of his playing career in the Second Division, and has a crap beard.

Imho, there is no car on the planet which does not look better for being black, providing it is clean and shiny. The car itself might be a pile of cr*p, but black paint will make it look better.

Well the full title should obviously be:

"George the Second, by the Grace of God, King of Great Britain, France and Ireland, Defender of the Faith, Duke of Brunswick-Lüneburg, Archtreasurer and Prince-Elector of the Holy Roman Empire"

But that' both rather pretentious as well as a bit of a mouthful for everyday use. You could always call it "Van" since George II was the last British monarch to have led the vanguard of the army into battle, or perhaps "Anti-jack" since he put-down Jacobite rebellions, or even "Hanni" in deference to his Hanovarian connections.

But if it is black, fast and carries a 3-pointed star surely the signature label has to be "Lewis".

I'd still call it Kloppo. But then that's probably just me.
