Bit-tech t-shirts hit the shelves

Now who wouldn't look better wearing one of these?

That's right, you read the headline correctly, bit-tech t-shirts are now available to buy so do your bit to stimulate the economic recovery and take a gander at our warez.

These +1 style granting garments can be had for £14 each, £22 for two or a bargaintastick £30 for three. At these prices you could deck out your entire family for the same price as a single console game.

Payment can be accepted via credit card, debit card or PayPal and orders can be shipped internationally to those of you that live in the far flung corners of the globe. We're so good to you.

You'll also be happy to note that this is only the first wave of fashion dynamite we plan to unleash; we're currently working on a second round of designs based on the suggestions you all kindly made in the t-shirt blog post. Keep your eyes peeled to see if your design made it through.

If for some reason you're still reading this rather than diving frantically for your credit card then clearly there is something wrong with you. Please feel free to go and discuss your issues in the forums.

If I actually make a guide for overclocking a toaster, can I have a free T-shirt?

This is still my favourite T on that site though bindi's is a close second. Both though are so oblique that they are only funny if you know the reference. If you ask nicely i'll find the daily mash article.

Rotate this knob clockwise. Start off in large increments, making sure to run bread burn-in tests after each increase. Once you start to get sub-optimal thermal performance, back off a little bit for a stable overclock.

I tried a voltmod, but things didn't go so well. I suspect my cheap bread is to blame so I'm going to try again after I've documented where to hook up the propane feed and bought some quality Kingsmill.

Even without the extra juice, things are pretty sweet - I've gone from Toast Factor 3 to Toast Factor 9. 300% performance is rather impressive but I want to see how far I can push this baby.

Nice, i'm gonna get all the ladehs with those tshirts. Also, +rep for the above epicness.

I'd buy some of the shirts but they seem to not do my size, I'm a fairly big guy but have never had problems else where getting a XL or XXL shirt, but on that site their shirts don't seem to even go past 30" whilst I'm a 41" in the chest, I'll hold off from buying for now.

This makes a change, it's normally the small sizes that never get catered for with t-shirts like this!

Loving the toaster guide! ...and might get a toaster t-shirt :)

Post a performance comparison between stock toaster clocks and the new ones. Synthetic benchmarks are lame.

Sloth's Toaster Overclocking Guide:

Step 1: Buy an American or Canadian toaster.
Step 2: Bend some paperclips around each prong on the power connector, leaving a moveable lead on each clip.
Step 3: Insert the lead from each paperclip into the appropriate hole on a British wall socket.
Step 4: Insert bread into toaster.
Step 5: Begin toasting process at maximum level.
Step 6: Back the **** up.

And we want neutral bread. There must be a bakery equivalent of WHQL. None of this "toaster friendly" lark to get better scores.

I can overvolt a toaster, but it would yield nothing but burnt toast and melting toaster-frame.

The sizing on the site is across the chest, not all the way around as you think. So an XL would be 48" all the way around.

^^^ What he said. I work in fashion and if I may say so, you shouldnt need anything more than a medium- large depending on how fitted you like it. I'm 42 across the chest but wear a small or a medium. Hope this helps :)
