  2. Mental Note: Wear suncreen while kayaking and 'enticing' the local wildlife.

      I can see youre from Orlando...I've been to the everglades once years ago. The mosquitoes were a nightmare <-- This is I will keep telling myself while walking from work this afternoon in the dark, wet cold ;)

      I put a heavy dose of factor 50 on during high summer (one of the few hot days)for an all day bike ride. Came back looking diseased with flys and midges encrusted onto me and glued on by the sunscreen - It was not pretty

      No harm in a little extra protein, imatfaal ;)

  3. Finally got voice control working for my lights. Feel stupidly happy about the whole thing.

      I might look into it. Yeah, one handy thing about having worked in two different trades(carpenter and electrician) is that I'm pretty comfortable with fixing anything around my house that needs fixed, or simply updating it. Rebuilt my entire rotten porch over the summer.

      Nice!  Wish I had your skillset. I can do small projects but would love to have the confidence to tackle something bigger.

      Yeah, it's quite nice. Honestly, it's the little pieces of knowledge that help the most. Everything else you can look up.

  4. Let dog out. Dog barks. Open door. Find kitten...

      Wish a kitten would show up at my front door! There are usually lots of dogs tied up at the beach and I go a bit crazy petting them all and a few weeks ago this German guy looked very annoyed that I was hugging his dog. Must be a cultural thing as usually the owners will be overjoyed to talk about their dog and interact in Sydney!

      TY all.

       

      Happily Momma Kitty returned today for her little one. Possibly still scolding him for getting himself covered in dog slobber.

      Aw, how cute! ^_^

  5. Horray! Have a full sized computer again. Wish I had thought to buy speakers, but at least I'm no longer typing on that teeny tiny phone screen :)

      A headphone amp with good earphones or headphones is great as well The Topping NX3 or NX1 are great for not a lot of money

      Went with a couple of basic speakers.

       

      Hoping to move to a VR rig once things normalize for them. Can't wait until we can test/compare the different types ourselves :)

      I used to work on a full size computer in the 1970's. It took up two large rooms in the basement of an office block :)

  6. Can't believe my car didn't stall out getting through flooded intersections on the way home :blink:

      More luck than caution. Car was making an unusual noise afterwards  but seems to be running fine now.

      Changed out the light bulbs in my new place. Old ones were way too harsh.

    3. Endy0816

      Feels cozy now :)

      Yes, ambience is important.

  8. Ugh sizing smart bulbs is tough. Have to send back everything and try again.

      What's 0.35 mm between friends?

      Was half seriously debating about rigging something up. Wouldn't have been pretty but whole lot less aggravation.

      Figured out autostarting the computer, so at least accomplished something of the overall project. Still felt like a fool trying to fit a too small sized bulb though.

    3. StringJunky

      StringJunky

      It's the difference between a bit fitting and not.

    4. Endy0816

      Endy0816

      No, I know. A world of Precision Engineering these days.

  9. New car. Vroom Vroom. :)

      Nissan Altima very nice :)

  10. I really hate when you do a search and the first result is your own post.

    1. Unity+

      Unity+

      If you are using Google, their algorithm, I think, searches stuff related to you. Since the post is related to your account, it will bring it up as a first result.

    2. Endy0816

      Endy0816

      hmm, that could be the reason.

      It is weird. All buttons are limited to being pressed once. For example you can only use 1 once.

    2. Endy0816

      Uses the "Checkbox Hack" to simulate buttons.

       

      Would need to swap them out once every couple digits for longer numbers.

       

  11. Drowned glasses in Ocean. Attempted to use crab. Crab objected.

      You must be feelin' crabby, right?

      Never been to Minnesota - but I did late December in Chicago and it was seriously bbbrr! New York still feels Autumnal. It is the same here (but to a lesser extent as our climate is always more moderate)- I have worn roughly the same cycling kit every morning since end of August thru to end December - I have washed it in between :)

  15. Moved into new place. Tiny but with great potential :)
