My bother when he got his GTX 1070Ti didn't bother to check to see if it would fit in his case, surprise surprise it didn't.
So he bought a new case I hate motherboards and their screws.

At lease this time it didn't blow up but I can't get any video output right now with both the gpu and the motherboard.

Good luck, PM. Yeah, knowing stuff tends to get others around you to rely on your expertise. Not too bad of a thing, but like you mentioned, would've been good if it was a job that would pay. XD 

Went volunteering today and got to do water vole surveying. Haven't done that since 2015, and always wanted to do that again. Even if today's had it's  quite extreme down sides. Reeds making it hard to find latrines and feeding stations, stinging nettles and insect bites. Poor guy I was with got swarmed by giant ants, so I helped bat them off. I had a few too going at me. Both of our arms got stung and bitten like hell. Took an allergy pill soon after, then later on put some cream on. Red arms for a while, but recovering well now. Was a good session, and glad it was only an hour or so of work. We finished quicker than we thought too. The Wednesday count (I wasn't a part of it) was an estimate of 80 after the formula, and we had plenty of recorded evidence today too. So we should in theory have plenty of voles about in our nature. ^_^ Still would do this again, need to take gloves next time though. My hands were fine, but would've avoided a bit more nettles that way.

Watched England vs Panama today. No clue what Panama were up to, playing so poorly in the first half. We got 5 goals off them, two were penalties as they were more interested in shoving our players over than focusing on the ball. As much as that's "allowed" on the playground and funny to watch, here there's consequences so they got paid in full. Second half they played better, even scored a goal with the final score being 6-1. If they played like that in the second half when they wanted that goal all game, probably would've been 3-2. Well done to Kane for his hat-trick. I bet after the goal from Panama, both teams were half-arsing it. I expect England was after Kane's third goal (which was before the Panama goal). LOL I felt no excitement from watching though. Not even the first goal got me interested. Although was finding Panama's first half funny.

So my theory is now that because it is a micro ATX motherboard and everything is cramped in (I really wish they would make a budget full size ATX board that is to the tech specs of micro ATX so I actually had room to work).

the 1070ti my brother got is too large to actually fit in to the pci express slot as there are cables connected to the board under it.

Looks like A pci-e extention cable is in his future.

My next Desktop is just going to be built on a test bench <_<

So while I was at Target today, I discovered this exists: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daphne_%26_Velma
I can't believe they still make live action Scooby-Doo movies. Who even watches these?! XD

Also went to Toys R Us to see if they had anything good there before they all shut for good this coming Friday, but they didn't. They just had random stuff left that clearly nobody wants to have even if you were giving it away.

They've become one of those straight to DVD series, so that tells you how bad they are. Just another one of those series that they have to try and continue to milk instead of letting die. Like Saw or The Purge, among many others.

I think it went straight to DVD after the second live action movie, of which the one I mentioned is the 5th. The one before that was in 2010, so clearly there wasn't any demand for this. I watched a trailer for it and that two minutes alone managed to seemingly shit all over the established canon of Scooby Doo. Eh

I'm assuming the one you linked is just them trying to cash in on the whole "woman power" thing that's been going on the last couple of years. Kind of like how they had to make the new Ghost Busters a female cast instead. Gotta make a Scooby-Doo movie showcasing that Daphne and Velma don't need the men of the group in order to solve a mystery.

Though I'm sure it'll end up like the new Ghost Busters, where instead of showcasing strong, independent female leads, instead the characters are really stupid and just make women look bad.

The trailer made them seem stupid with how the acted, but the box art at Target was making them both out to be strong and smart, something with Daphne never really has been portrayed as until the live action movies took place, but at least for that they made it a reasonable plot point that she was sick of being the kidnapped one so learned self defense (something she would not know anything about in the movie with her and Velma as it takes place before all of that). So yeah, probably some cash grab based on girl power rather than anything with actual substance to it.

And then cry "sexism" when people say it was bad, or in the case of Ghost Busters even before it was release.

In the promos it looked like Bill Murry wanted to kill him self over it, (he had controlling rights over yay/nay of future Ghost Busters movies and Sony threaten to black ball him/sue him if he said no to the past movie from what I have read when the Sony Email leak happened).

Also Scooby Doo spin offs never work, no one bloody liked Scrappy...

I liked him in the first live-action Scooby Doo movie because he was treated like dirt and got defeated as the villain of that movie to be never seen again. Even Hanna-Barbera regretted putting Scrappy into the show, ever since the first episode with him in it aired.
