I’ve backed a few projects on Kickstarter and Indiegogo. Only a couple have failed to deliver, so I have been quite lucky. And I’ve got some nice things too. However one kickstarter has burned me pretty bad and I will avoid tech that is not open source like the plague from now on.
Slightly different from the usual stuff but I’ve just had to do this and it turned out to be rather complex!
What I thought was going to be a quick fix turned into a project and now I know how Dell laptop PSUs work. So if you enjoy complete overkill in what should have been a quick job then read on.
I’ve been having a bit of fun with my MIG welder lately so rather than replace it I had a dig around in my spares bin (and about £15 to ebay) and managed to fix it. Oh and make it better in the process!
By US standards I don’t live in the boonies but by UK standards I might as well be living in the middle of nowhere!
I would say its good to be back but the rain is falling at about 45 degrees from vertical! You can get used to sun and heat all too quickly.
Apologies for the rather long time between updates. I have been rather busy with other things. But I have not been ignoring the 3D printer.
Nice headline on the Beeb. It has got the enviro-numpties all excited too.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is one of those things that could be a good idea but so far it has been been a total disaster!
You would think that a large company would be interested in saving some money on their power bill…. but no!
