  1. It's probably too late but I was going to suggest exactly this. The Newegg powersearch is a... powerful feature.
  2. I was actually coming in here to post the same question. It makes me wonder if they're going to take some time off/release it early next year? The normal release schedule would be roughly 4 months from now and it seems odd that there's NOTHING this close to when it'd normally come out.
  3. A couple of months ago I pulled something in my back while spotting a guy on the incline bench press and helping him re-rack. I didn't even know such a thing was possible. Getting old is the worst.
  4. My interest in WWE started declining around 05 when one of my best friends (and absolute best wrestling friend) started dabbling in some activities that took him away from wrestling. We were both from Long Island, grew up together, he moved to Buffalo when we were 13 (around 2001) but one of the ways we still kept contact together was that we'd talk on the phone ever Monday night and essentially hate watch Raw. Once he got involved with some other stuff, I didn't really feel the need to watch Raw by myself anymore and by 05 I was a huge ROH fan anyway so I was still able to get my wrestling fix. By the end of 08, I started to get involved with life stuff (nothing bad, just a product of getting older) and I largely stopped following everything. I crept back in a bit during the Summer of Punk and Bryan's run in 2014 but they were cups of coffee at best. The presentation had changed so much in terms of the buzzwords and everything feeling overly produced yet sterile that Raw didn't feel like a pro wrestling show anymore (congrats, Vince). Thankfully I have WWE Network and absolutely love being able to watch both wrestling I grew up with and wrestling from before my time. I'm hopeful AEW will produce some good stuff.
  5. Amazing how much your face got leaner. Great work, mate.
  6. I can relate to everyone talking about back issues. My lower back has been a trouble spot for years. Every once in a while I'll do something and it'll lock up. I recently went to a spine specialist, had x-rays and an MRI and thankfully, there's no real damage. The absolute lowest disc in my back has a very slight herniation but it's not compressed against anything and is in a way that it could actually be genetic/natural and not necessarily from anything I did myself. The doctor said that it's actually something that could even correct itself over time and the best thing to do is keep lifting as long as I'm not in pain. He also said that I can expect to throw my back out from time to time at the gym but such is life. Made me feel better for sure. Stretching helps a ton, as I'm sure yoga does as well.
  7. https://www.amazon.com/Logitech-Harmony-Infrared-Universal-Programmable/dp/B004OVECU0 I've been using a Logitech Harmony for years and I really like it. I have a regular Roku and a Vizio soundbar and it works really well.
  8. I know the feeling. I'm just starting to be able to (comfortably) fit back into some of my medium's for the first time in a couple of years and it feels great. It's funny because most of the shirts I have at the gym are old/super big on me to the point where I feel like I can swim in them and they make me look huge (not in a positive way) but then I put on real clothes and I'm like, "ok, there's progress."
  9. The other thing that makes it noticeable is when you start buying clothes a size or two smaller. Almost 10 years ago, I lost a ton of weight and because I was a broke college student, I kept wearing the same clothes for as long as I could despite them being super baggy. Once I felt comfortable with where I was weight-wise, I bought new clothes that actually fit me properly- namely going from XL shirts to Medium shirts and that probably drew the strongest reaction from people, even those that I saw pretty frequently. I didn't realize how much baggy clothes could really make you look bigger than reality.
  10. Clothes are always a great way to measure progress. A lot of times it's hard to detect just by looking in the mirror since you see yourself everyday (unless you take progress pics like every 3 months and then compare). Keep it up!
  11. Beat me to it. I was a month away from turning 12 and even then I knew that I was watching garbage.
  12. Oh I'm sure. I've observed it and it's always super cringe. I don't know how y'all manage.
  13. I tend to go to the gym early in the morning on weekdays, so a lot of the folks there are usually just there to workout before going to work or are retirees who are early risers, so it's usually not too bad in terms of people just using the gym to socialize/lecture. I have gone at night though and it's awful. I once had a scarring experience in the locker room with a Super Bro.
  14. I'm like 5'6" myself... tall people will never understand the struggle of how quickly guys like us can put on weight haha
