Will have to be patient till spring comes around to humanely eliminate insects with the Bug A Salt gun. For now I have shot some empty cans and my hand. It stung pretty good. Had to search for some table salt in the pantry since we normally use flake. Found 4 of those round containers. The one I grabbed stuck to the shelf a bit.
I ordered it many moons ago from indegogo and got one of the first runs. It has sturdy construction and is easy to use.
Swapping out the tires from the old truck to the new. That is a cool tool. My 6 gallon air compressor had a heck of a time catching up, but it was way easier than doing it all with a tire wrench.
I made a crappy vid that is not worth watching. Seems the camera cannot pick up on it. I had Theresa film me while I buzzed our street 6 or so times, but none of those came out either.
The concept is pretty cool, but it is not something I would want on my bike more than just for fun every now and then because the thing adds about 1/2 a pound to your outer rim.
I had a fingerprint smudge on the camera lens
Adipose are cute globs of fat with stumpy legs from an episode of Doctor Who. They are not very evil and I like that.
The Arcade light switch replaces the plate for the regular style light switches, but not the new rocking kind. Fortunately we still had one left down in the room off the BorKade where the keg is. I installed it over lunch and it is pretty cool. It makes neat sounds and stays lit up for 30 seconds after it is used.
Theresa rules because of many reasons, but I like that she will randomly just buy me toys. Thanks Theresa.
Basic bike accessories pretty much always take a 2032 coin battery. If you go to your local shop you will pay at least $2 a piece. On ebay or amazon you will get tons shipped to you on the uber cheap. I picked up 50 lithium 2032 coin batteries for $10 shipped from Amazon prime. All our lights are kicking and we still have over 40 left.
The cool rim lights Theresa bought us took two 2016 coin batteries, but a 2032 can take the place of both of them no problem. Aint nobody gonna not see us at night.
The long awaited makey makey showed up Friday. I played around with it some and then got an idea to build a wooden box to be a controller for the virtual pinball I play on my PC. Got some scraps from the garage and built it. I have a launch, credit, start, and the flipper buttons alligator clipped to the makey makey which is connected via USB to my computer. Before I was playing on the keyboard and this feels so much better. They sell cards to hook arcade buttons to a computer that have more options, but for a test run the makey makey got the job done.
