I should really buy another dash cam. The last one I had kinda took a crap on me last September and I haven't bothered to get a new one.


I did get a Pixel 2 XL, though, for better or worse; my old Nexus 6P is kicking the bucket and only lasts for about 15 minutes of use on a full charge I would have just gone with the normal Pixel 2 but between the Fi credit and trade-in of my current phone it worked out to be a little cheaper.

I haven't finished setting it up yet.


I also got a data-only SIM for my old iPhone 5S, which is somehow still in good shape ... with the SIM card I can use it for some out-of-the-house bullshit, since it has a really nice calculator for when we go grocery shopping.

hell yeah pixel 2!!!

i have the standard 5" and while the price kinda killed me and hurt, god damn it's a nice phone. slick as fuck, nearly stock android OS, even faster fingerprint sensor plus gestures

also the fabric case makes it look real nice. was afraid of the bezel looking huge, but it turns out it's taolly fine in person.

hoping i can make it last 2+ years and not stupidly break it like my pixel 1...

I borrowed a home energy audit toolkit from the library! I know it's not *mine* but for 7 days it is very interesting.

Also the laser thermometer is fun.

ah yeah, the fabric case looks pretty neat. guess i'll get one of those too, since i like having a case on phones; they feel way too light otherwise.

Kraftwerk! More krautrock is always a good idea.

In my case, a cheap ($7 or so?) FX2LP-based logic analyzer. The crimp job on the jumpers is so overzealous I've had to throw half of them out, but the thing works pretty well otherwise, and the sigrok driver seems mature enough. Once I get some decent jumpers and clips, I'm sure it'll save me headache next time I have to use I2C for something.

Also got an Orangepi PC2 (allwinner-based single board computer) coming, but the jury's out on that.

I caved and bought an arcade stick, specifically a Qanba Obsidian when it was on sale for Combo Breaker. Despite me being way out of practice I've been having fun using it.

βWe have a chin-up bar now!

Then arose the question of whether we had a drill to drill the holes in the door frame to mount it with.

Hmf. I guess that's going to be a thing at some point…

Oh neat! I've always wanted a floppy camera. They had one at a thrift store here a few months ago, but in unfortunately didn't come with it's proprietary battery charger.

I got a new car! 2017 Ford Fiesta. Took it out with my parents to go see my gran, and I'm very happy with it! Very forgiving at low revs, so I can use less fuel without feeling like I'm going to stall. Also, 6 forward gears instead of the normal 5, so I can hit higher speeds at lower revs. Should really improve the mpg!

I got a new controller for both the PC and the PS3/PS4. So far it's really good and has been working well.
