I haven't seen any mentions of EEVBlog here yet. I'll admit that he's not really a "traditional" YouTube tech idiot.

Watching his dumpster diving videos makes me sort of sad I don't work in an office complex.

As for techy stuff people might find interesting, he has a load of debunking videos including several on the whole solar roads thing from a bunch of years back.

I just discovered Gamers Nexus' DIY NAS series from a few months ago and I have to rage while linking XKCD.

After watching these in their entirety, I realized that my viewing habits may be classified as "a bit odd" so I thought I would share a one-decision CYOA.

Would you prefer 55 minutes of hardware gore or two hours of cable porn?

There hasn't been any tech idiot chat in a couple of days. Enjoy Linus dropping something..

According to someone on the unofficial subreddit, Linus commented on Floatplane that it came out at exactly $5000.

Linus nuked a $2000 motherboard this week :(

Hey now, it was Alex who nuked the motherboard with water and then spent fifteen minutes hot gluing front panel connectors onto pins that are not front panel on the replacement.

Announcing your OnlyFans on the first of April is a genius move. People hate it? "It's just a prank, bro!" People love it? Go trade component pics for cash.

Or he does it on purpose because it's become a meme.

The graphics card was a dummy, if I recall. I think he's just an uncoordinated nerd but he leans into it.
