    wow there's a store 23minutes from me that's an official supplier for Zipfit! Will have to go check them out. Thanks for the recommendation

    they are available in Canada at Tate + Yoko but dunno how much shipping / import costs would be.

    I have way too many N&F jeans... but those look really nice (and I want the harley queen of slevege too...). I've started mostly wearing Raleigh Denim instead though, seem to fit just a hair better (but more expensive again)

    I do want to keep the boot pretty tight and not impact the stiffness at all. I'm not really a tourer / blackcountry / off pieste skier, mostly ride around on a pair of Volkl Racetiger GS in Europe. The concern is pressure on the plate at the ankle and annoying the life out of me.

    Guess I really need to get walking first, then I'll stick my current boots on a see what they feel like

    yeah I'll give that a go before buying anything this season for sure. I've never molded the insides (or outside) of my current boots. They are Salomon X Pro 120 which i like, but pretty old now (16/17 model)

    anyone done a fully custom boot liner? I broke my ankle 3 weeks ago and now have a plate+screws in it. Obv. not going skiing soon, but I worry the plate might be annoying in my normal boots. I've been considering for years a proper custom liner just never done it.

    I was wondering about the license key .... if I do a clean install but I've lost my Win 10 Pro key, will it activate as long as I use the same MS login that my Win 10 uses? obv. it's replacing my Win 10.

    I'm switching my machine to a Ryzen 9 5900x ... so worried it won't allow activation or some bullshit. I've no spare keys otherwise

    hah I've seen them, considered one for work, but I think a pure tablet is more what i'm after

    So this is going to sound a bit #1stworldproblems but here goes. I have a Chomebook Duet tablet thing, which is quite nice but damn it's slow. ChomeOS still doesn't work right and really all I want is a tablet to read comics, occational websites and watch videos on.

    I'm a bit underwhelmed with the iPad choices right now. Obv. the iPad pro has issues with the OS it's using (and way over kill for my needs). I was hoping the iPad refresh would come with an A15, or A14 at least, but they slapped a years old A13 in it. Then there's the mini, sure state of the art hardware but fucked up screen and I think it would be a bit small for comics....

    There is the iPad Air 2020 which looks pretty good, but worry that it's just about to be replaced

    Do I just suck it up and keep using the 10" chromebook or maybe just get the iPad ?

    wonder if changing iPhone 12 Pro to 13 Pro is worth it....

    really enjoying my 13" M1 ... i know there's a new one coming soon, but this was a work pilot.
