Yup.

 

Fortunately I'm still young so the infamous stiffness of the Babolat Pure Drive and AeroPro Drive rackets don't really bother me too much.

 

I get to hit with it tomorrow at least since my coach won't have my racket restrung by tomorrow. I'm afraid he's going to give me crap strings though. He gave my friend some terrible nylons for his racket. I need a nice bed of poly (of course I'll take the kevlar and synthetic hybrid but that's for varsity only).

 

Tempted to buy a Mantis 300 since it's reputation is a blend between the APD and AP. Also looks awesome.

Sounds nice. Ever have yours strung with real gut strings? I think you can still get catgut strings around here. The ammount of spin you get is INSANE. They're pretty expensive though.

Episode 1 of Mushishi Season 2

 

Just a mystifying as the first season, beautiful animation too. OP is perfect too, and the OST is the about the same as the first season. Feels a bit slow first episode, but the ending was really nice.

I believe so.

 

'hitting something' followed by a fancy name generally implies a vape of sorts

I got a new laptop stand, wireless mouse and headset combo from TigerDirect. They were having a massive sale and after a few instant rebates and a Mail in Rebate, they were selling the stand, mouse and headset for $3 with free shipping (came in two days)

I gotta get myself one of those stands. What do you think of it so far?

I paid $3 for the stand, mouse and headphones (which aren't too bad).

 

So yeah, I like but keep in mind that stands like this are generally used as a stand for multi-monitor setups with the laptop resting on it

 seen here

 

OR with the laptop screen closed and just using it as a portable desktop powerhouse. 

 

 

If you are using it like me with the screen open and without other monitors, you most likely either like it this way, are tall, OR want to use desktop accessories but your desk is too small.

 

Do note you need a real keyboard and mouse when using it like this with a 45degree stand like this.

 

The stand however does offer improved cooling, aesthetics, makes it good use as a desktop setup for a laptop, and to allow you to use desktop accessories with it while hiding all the hubs, cables beneath the stand.

 

I for one, am hiding a USB hub, and 3-4 cords of cables inside the stand. 

 

It's a clean look and is pretty nice. It doesn't offer the best usability, aesthetics, or cooling as something that is more geared towards specific functions but it is a good multi-tool stand. 

 

 

The deal is over now sadly. 

post #109438 of 165980

All I'm missing from that setup now is a keyboard sadly. It looks AMAZING right now.

 

Problem is that I don't ever need to use it.

 

I have no need for another audio rig or even a deciated one on my second desk and that computer is mainly my school computer that I recently supped up. 

 

But dayum if the Matrix unit, vertical laptop stand, and headphone stand look amazing with it.

It's not a bucket in a bucket, it's a cat in a box. Methinks its close enough ;)
