Razer Huntsman Elite - Surprised they are still price matching at Microcenter even though it's public knowledge Amazon is delaying non essentials still.
Tempur-pedic TP9000 office chair (Was actually cheaper in STAPLES, but they didn't have it... so I had to order it... they still gave me the lower price, saved me $60.)
15FT CAT7 Ethernet cable
i9 9900KF - Found a good deal... don't really care to be a early adopter to the new chipset.

That is the Understatement of the YEAR = "Amazon is delaying non essentials still"
 
I ordered thermal pads 02 May ... In stock, Sold & shipped by Amazon ... Amazon waited & "shipped" 08 May .. they shipped my One-Day shipping order by Ground ....

Amazon has been hit and miss with me.  

Ordered a Gojira CD yesterday, it was delivered this afternoon.   Other stuff I ordered yesterday won't deliver until later this week.

Oh yeah. WDYBT.  Gojira's Magma CD, numerous other digital albums, an M.2 enclosure and a puzzle for the GF.

Keurig K-Elite coffee maker in brushed slate [link] - our old one that we've had for years broke. Just brewed the first cup on the new machine moments ago. Yummy.

Great, iPhone SE 2020 are excellent.
I still have iPhone SE 2016. It's same as in day when I bought him.
I will never pay to other cell phone. But because economic situation I look to stay with phones below 500$.
I think I will soon buy iPhone XR... or wait little more for iPhone 11.

https://www.dickssportinggoods.com/p/gt-mens-ricochet-x-27-5-mountain-bike-18gtxa275mrcchtxxprf/18gtxa275mrcchtxxprf

Pretty excited... need to get my lazy butt out of the house and on the bike trails. I've been wanting a GT hardtail like this for a long while... too bad they discontinued the Zaskar, cause that's the one I really wanted. This has all Shimano Deore parts, so i'm expecting it to be pretty nice. Signed up for their e-mails and got an extra $110 off.

Pretty decent hard tail. I'd 100% before I even take it out on the trails upgrade the tires to something a little more beefy to grip the trails. I mean those WTB Trail Boss tires are probably OK for light XC type of trails but for anything else, I wouldn't trust them. Lots of opportunities to upgrade stuff easy when you're ready like going to a single speed front chain ring or adding a dropper seat post.

Right now I use 26" Kenda K-RAD 2.3's on my 2011 Trek Fuel EX5. The rims need to be trued and it should be good for a run this week before I get my GT.


I have a trail that spans about 30 miles one way and the beginning of it is pretty much right next to my house. It's all pavement but not the type for road bikes, lots of tar in long stretches and the quality of the path varies a lot since it goes through 4 different cities between two states. Kind of interesting to see the park budget differences in each area... I've done the full run a few times but not in the last two years. For the GT I was thinking about the 27.5" Kenda Kwick Drumlin 2.2's because they have good sidewall protection... I've had my sidewall get torn twice on 2 separate rides, once when I was 20+ miles out and it really sucks when no one is available to help and you have to walk it back. 

Also, saw your Cannondale, i'm definitely jealous! SRAM stuff is crazy nice and I think they are manufactured/produced in the US, but I could be wrong.

*** I cancelled this order because I got an email after the fact automatically cancelling the 3" midrange. I don't need the 6.5's. I already have some. I got these specifically for the 3" mids and because the crossover supports it where my current 6.5's don't have that option.***
 
I bought some new 3 way component speakers for my car. 
 
Infinity Perfect 600 6.5" component set

and Infinity Perfect 300 3" midrange

Lucky that you have a trail that close to your house. I have to drive about 30-40mins to get to any of the trails in my area (downside of living in south FL). If the trail you ride is mostly pavement then the tires on it stock should be more than fine. If you do however do a lot of pavement/asphalt riding you still may want to consider getting new tires with lower rolling resistance then. But any riding is better than no riding enjoy the bike
 
As for what I bought today: Ordered a upgrade for my rear shock on my Cannondale. Wanted something with a little more beef for when I take my bike to NC but also still supple enough to handle my local trails.

Pretty excited... need to get my lazy butt out of the house and on the bike trails. I've been wanting a GT hardtail like this for a long while... too bad they discontinued the Zaskar, cause that's the one I really wanted. This has all Shimano Deore parts, so i'm expecting it to be pretty nice. Signed up for their e-mails and got an extra $110 off.


Pretty decent hard tail. I'd 100% before I even take it out on the trails upgrade the tires to something a little more beefy to grip the trails. I mean those WTB Trail Boss tires are probably OK for light XC type of trails but for anything else, I wouldn't trust them. Lots of opportunities to upgrade stuff easy when you're ready like going to a single speed front chain ring or adding a dropper seat post. 
 
But good on you man. Get out there and ride those trails man 



Right now I use 26" Kenda K-RAD 2.3's on my 2011 Trek Fuel EX5. The rims need to be trued and it should be good for a run this week before I get my GT.


I have a trail that spans about 30 miles one way and the beginning of it is pretty much right next to my house. It's all pavement but not the type for road bikes, lots of tar in long stretches and the quality of the path varies a lot since it goes through 4 different cities between two states. Kind of interesting to see the park budget differences in each area... I've done the full run a few times but not in the last two years. For the GT I was thinking about the 27.5" Kenda Kwick Drumlin 2.2's because they have good sidewall protection... I've had my sidewall get torn twice on 2 separate rides, once when I was 20+ miles out and it really sucks when no one is available to help and you have to walk it back. 

Also, saw your Cannondale, i'm definitely jealous! SRAM stuff is crazy nice and I think they are manufactured/produced in the US, but I could be wrong.


Lucky that you have a trail that close to your house. I have to drive about 30-40mins to get to any of the trails in my area (downside of living in south FL). If the trail you ride is mostly pavement then the tires on it stock should be more than fine. If you do however do a lot of pavement/asphalt riding you still may want to consider getting new tires with lower rolling resistance then. But any riding is better than no riding enjoy the bike
 
As for what I bought today: Ordered a upgrade for my rear shock on my Cannondale. Wanted something with a little more beef for when I take my bike to NC but also still supple enough to handle my local trails.

Nice! I hear orders are actually getting to people pretty quick with this kind of stuff. Mine sure did! Got my bike after 2 days. I put it all together, straight out of the box from GT. It had all kinds of notices printed on the box saying that it should be set-up by a professional. Took it out of the box, it was actually not that hard to put it together... most of it was assembled.  This model comes with tubeless tires and this is the first time I have ever used those. The front tire ended up having a few holes in it and they don't have the part to replace it at the store... so I had to order a whole new bike because it would take weeks to get the part from GT compared to just ordering another one because GT is apparently out of spare parts. So that's my purchase of today, except they are going to put the next one together and I was given an extra $70 off.
 
The trail next to my house is pretty nice, but it's through a lot of residential areas. I often prefer going to other ones that are further out with more wildlife. I do feel very lucky to have as many trails as we have in my general area...

The new iPhone SE 2020 came today
Very easy transfer of all my apps and data

Phone is much faster at loading everything
Even web pages open a lot faster
The radar on the weather app actually works now and instantly at that
The camera seems to work well though I haven’t really used it a lot yet

64gb seems like a lot of storage coming from 16gb and it is nice to have room to load up some music mp3 to have when there is no connection I like to use my phone to listen to music and it seems to work well for that
Nice phone for the money
