    I got some replacement pads on ebay a few years ago (came from China I think). They didn't cost too much. The foam wasn't as firm as the original Sennheiser foam, but it did the job OK.

    I hadn't seen the campaign, but I'm not too sure about "emojis" in general. Whenever I see these so called "emojis", they tend not to even look like faces or facial expressions. That's just bad...

    I upgraded to an NVME SSD last year to get better speed, but stuck with a 500GB one (the same as my old SATA SSD) as anything bigger was too expensive. I also upgraded to a 4TB HDD for bulk storage....

    I think its because of the amount of information in the left column (underneath your name), which takes up quite a lot of room.

    I've never heard of sending something to someone to have it 'graded' in exchange for payment. Sounds silly to me.



    Did they actually sell at that price, or was that just an asking price? If so,...

    I've never used a VPN.

    The closest thing I do is use Andrews & Arnold's L2TP service, which works kind-of like a VPN, but is unencrypted, so does not give you any added privacy. I use this to...
