There is still a bit of a difference here, but not 80K - I'm throwing the bull shit flag.....
I'm not sure what the big deal is anyway... I seen and loved the Avatar movie, but when they jumped off that cliff, I about jumped out of my seat. I had to close my eyes because I started getting vertigo pretty bad. If I was watching that in 3-D, not sure what would have happened. In other words it had more than enough "visually stunning" shots in there for me.
Is a movie in 3-D that much better? I have heard that some people like it and some could care less. Am I really missing anything?
And thats a great idea to be able to turn off stuff you don't use all the time with diff power strips, I do that myself.
You may want to use a mounting head cable tie and screw stuff you your actual desk. This is the kind of tie http://www.cabletiesplus.com/Products/5-Mounted-Head-Cable-Ties-(40-lb)-(Natural)__CP-5-40MH-N.aspx and you can use very small screws.
BUT if you don't want harm your desk at all. Just leave it hang and lay on the floor and make it look at nice as you can. Don't use tape, or sticky strips, or sticky cable mounts, because NONE OF THEM WORK. About two days after you anchor something it will come off, trust me... Basic rule of thumb for cable work, if it seems like its going to be way too much work and a big pain in the ass, then your doing it right and it will look great in the end. And just remember I have done this with 20+ devices in a 72u rack (over 6 feet of eq...) and you could NOT see any power cable when I was done and all the network, KVM etc... were ladder wrapped and the rest of the ties were about 1ft apart... Took 2 days to do one rack, but it looked great when it was finished.
And it is cool to see some alt reality stuff sometimes. Come on we are Sci-Fi people right? I would have liked to seen a cameo of the real James T in there during the mind meld with future/older Spock and past/young James T, but can't have everything.
But, again I say a really great movie that I will be seeing again.
I had been gaming on the PC forever... (cough in my 40s now...)
But I have NOT bought a PC game since my 1st xbox... And I do not plan on buying one. REASON: guess what, my main PC is 5/6 years old and it STILL RUNS great....
I upgraded and bought new PCs all the time in the past... now I only spend money on the games, not the games and a new machine each year...
