You use a safety razor to shave? I just started using a Van Der Hagen razor and have been really happy with the results so far, though I still need to get a proper brush, mug, and creme/soap so I can ditch the canned goop. Any recommendations?

Go to walmart, they have a mug/brush combo that is more than worth the money. It has a windmill on it, and comes in at under 20 bucks. (Comes with soap) It really DOES make a difference, by the way. I use barbasol canned and a 5 blade razor at work, and the safety razor at home. The safety razor is better.

The windmill guys are the ones who made (or perhaps just repackaged) my razor and I have been thinking about getting that set. Is the brush ok? The most common complaint about the set seems to be the brush is to stiff and sheds allot.

Yep, I use a safety razor to shave.

I use Taylor of Old Bond street soap and I've found Derby blades are good.

You have a shower, right? A bar of soap? Put your razor in the shower and shave there. Use the same soap you use to clean your butt. It's soap, which is a lubricant, and you have hot water, to soften the beard.

You don't need all those mamby-pamby cremes or lotions, or other sissy stuff. Shave in the shower like a man shaves. A mirror, you ask? Why do you need a mirror. I'm pretty sure you can find your face, even with your eyes closed.

Oh, geez!

I used to do it that way but as I have gotten older it had worked less and less well, resulting in razor burn and whatnot. If let things go I end up with this crazy ass wolfman beard that grows every which way and requires a multi step process to remove. I'm still learning though, and have a tendency to cut myself on my second pass. I found a place near me that sells a bunch of shaving stuff so I might head there just to see what they have.

Jered I am very sorry that your mobo did not work. I've had similar issues with video cards, hopefully they can make it right.

I got this one.

From what I've read about the board in my OP, there are a fair number of people who have issues with it.

I've bought three mobos in the last two or three years. The first was an MSI, and worked fine once I quit using the buggy control center software. The second was a Gigabyte that I bought to replace the MSI. I never was able to get it to boot, but threw it in when I sold that desktop to a friend. He has since put it in a different machine, and has had no issues with it. The current machine is running an ASUS Sabertooth, and is stable and trouble-free since day one. In between the first desktop and the current one, I bought a higher-end MSI gaming laptop. That machine has had an intermittent blue-screen problem ever since I got it, but it doesn't seem to be affecting anything else, just the occasional blue screen. Mrs. O finally got sick of me cussing the blue screens, and told em to just go ahead and build another desktop. I LIKE this machine. Loaded. Fast. Stable. Did I mention loaded? :D It cost me a few bucks, but it was definitely worth it. My friend is still running its predecessor, with no issues. I used some of the same parts in this newest build, but changed a few things too. I keep trying to talk the Mrs. into letting me build a desktop for her, but she still likes her laptop and the Surface Pro 3.

I am about to buy two...

and

The former will be for my teen's gaming rig, the latter for mine.

Anecdote, not data: Since 1985 or so, I have never had a single problem with an Intel-brand motherboard. I have had plenty of hardware and software problems with non-Intel-brand MBs. I therefore now buy only Intel-brand MBs. It's a PITAr getting them here, but worth the extra hassle IMHO. Of course, I couldn't care less about warp speed performance or gaming, so Intel hardware is just fine for me, but it might not be bleeding-edge enough for those with other needs...

Denis, it's my understanding that Intel is no longer selling motherboards. :cry:

That's too bad. They made good ones. I haven't built a PC from parts in the past three or four years.

These days, I just buy an ASUS box and put Linux on it. That works with a minimum of fuss - from opening the carton to functional system and productive work takes an hour or less.
