    What did you use your flashlight for today?

    Today I needed to reset a device located in an electrical room. I used my PD36R to find the light switch in the room, then used it too trace the cable from the device in question to the wall socket in order to power-cycle it..

    Analog hardwired audio just works in general. It has none of the frailities of bluetooth audio, which like Idleprocess said is constantly competing with other wireless gadgets for bandwidth in the 2.4ghz band.

    What did you use your flashlight for today?

    Today I was working with a couple of contractors who needed to peer into the space above a drop ceiling. I had my trusty PD36R with me, running on medium brightness, when one of the contractors asked to borrow it. Of course I was happy to comply.

    LED C9 christmas lights that compete with incandescents for brightness

    I'm very pleased with these. The filament shape gives them a nice even light distribution that looks virtually identical to incandescents.

    My newest ride my favorite ride ever

    Nice looking bike Raggie! Yeah it doesn't look like an electric bike. The only thing that gives it away is the lettering "electric assist" on it. Nice find.

    Thank you Jean-Luc. I'm considering this.

    What did you use your flashlight for today?

    Honestly I wish my PD36R had the slightly warmer tint of my PD35, but that's the tradeoff of lumens vs color temperature.

    What did you use your flashlight for today?

    As I was walking into a room today, someone turned the lights off. WTH? I was already carrying my PD36R in my hand in anticipation of another use, so I hit the tail switch and was able to just continue walking as if nothing had happened.

    He bought a canyon so he could jump over it? Wow.

    Those tunes that get stuck in your head

    I didn't know until recently that Arlo Guthrie didn't write The City of New Orleans, nor was he the first to record it, but I've always liked his version. Here he is explaining how the song fell into his lap.

    Pandemic supply chain in your area

    It seems that the single serving cans of peas & carrots have been a low priority for restocking in my area. I've been looking for them and I've only seen the larger family size cans. Finally found a couple of the smalll cans tonight.

    +1 on Bactine also. I don't think I've ever had an infected wound that was treated with it immediately. It only had a mild sting for me, and to this day I find it's aroma pleasant. Maybe it's because I associate that smell with the feeling of being taken care of when I got a cut as a kid.

    The stuff reminds me of theatrical collodion. Maybe it is for all I know. The flexible type of collodion is used for wound closures.

    Liquid bandage. I had a cut recently that I was treating with a regular band-aid. The cut was oddly shaped and slightly longer than the padded part of the bandage. Every time I'd change it, a little bit of the wound would get torn open and start bleeding again. This went on for days...

    what is it?

    While I suspected it was something electronic, I would have never guessed that! I would expect an audible alarm to be no higher in frequency than around 2khz.

    ok if you won the big lotto what would you buy?

    I would buy Twitter :party: Seriously though, I would pay off some bills and move to a larger place. Then maybe start up an R&D lab.

    I have super small hands

    I doubt that the average person would notice. In general people are more worried about how they're being perceived by everyone else.
