Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

I remember that remarkable piece of machinery you got! I'm looking for something portable and as big as it gets (TB-wise), basically, so unfortunately I can't buy that Diskstation.

For now the best I can find in shops, in the 2.5" USB powered range, are 1TB HDDs. I guess I'll have to wait for something bigger than that. Thanks for the info anyway!

As per my friend's instructions, I bought myself this suit. I am standing up in his wedding, and instead of renting tuxedos, he has decided that we all just going to wear matching suits that we can keep.

A suit that fits is always a much better idea than a rented garment.

Besides, I've never really liked the American habit of wearing dinner jackets to daytime weddings. Looks weird, frankly. If you're going wear a formal item of clothing during the day, pick one that's actually meant to be worn in the daytime. If it's an evening wedding (which is weird to me also, but that's another story), dinner jackets are fine. Anyway, just my little bugbear.

So yeah, wearing a suit to a daytime wedding is a good idea. But don't get me started on my views about matching suits for the wedding party...

Have fun at the wedding!

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

Okay--I just won something both cool and geeky on eBay.

I've wanted a chess set for a while. Finally, I settled on this.

I like the modernist styling of the pieces. And it's vintage. And it doesn't hurt that the set was called "Gothic."

But most importantly--it was used on TOS. You can see these pieces on the 3-D chessboards in a few episodes, including "Journey to Babel" and "Day of the Dove." See here for some screenshots.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

Today I spent a lot more than I could actually afford to spend on nonsense:

Got myself a paper shredder (Which really is redundant as I live with a cat), a couple of Terry Pratchett's, rechargeable elements (for some 'Chinese lanterns', I bought a couple of years ago and never used more than twice -as they are quite power-hungry) and a soup mug:

^Found it on my way out of a poster shop after having discovered that none of their posters were to my taste.

TOS communicator app for my phone. The sound effects and image replication are amazing - absolutely delighted with it! I don't know why I didn't think to look for this before. And it is complete with flick open and closed action!
