That power supply is quite a bit more powerful (5A) than what the fans and circuit board would require (probably 1-2A) but it would do. The...

I'm with them too. Other than a lack of branches, it's no fuss and no bullshit that you get with banks either. Also they've surprised me by...

If you haven't already, get a serious budgeting program (I use You Need A Budget) and track *every* dollar that comes in and out. It can be...

Urrgghh, thanks. Funny how I've never actually noticed this before. I guess your brain reads just enough of each word to make it out.

It was astronomy for me. Buy a telescope (Celestron C8) for a few thousand back in the day, add an equatorial mount and motors so it can...

At best, you just need to convert the US style plug to an Australian style plug. At worst you would need to buy the appropriate AC-DC power...

[@Orgazmo](/comment/6384123/redir): Yes, big issues. Simply being born in the US (to Aussie parents) automatically makes them US citizens,...
