I'm often on a factory floor with ear protection on. Without a loud ringtone, I'd never hear it.
06/06/2021 - 19:57

I was *happy* when I found the owners left the wall mounts at the place we bought. Saved me having to mount new ones with different hole...

In the wall/roof/floor cavity is considered concealed cabling and requires a licensed installer. But for insurance to deny a claim I think...

Ah didn’t see that. Still would cost a bit to run them though. So the original $100/run might be more accurate.

Network cable must be run by a licensed person. Doesn’t matter what they are plugged in to. Total bullshit, but that’s the law...

To climb inside your roof and run networks cable to the 4 corners of your house, and back to a central point where you have the NVR, and...

5 years of *not* working in industry (in my case, engineering) adds up fast.
06/12/2020 - 18:33
Oh man, I did a PhD instead of going into industry straight out of uni and earning between 300 and 500k in that time, not to mention the...

The non-adjustable stand version is $300 through a rep too. Mine arrived today. Ordered direct after missing out on the deal a couple weeks...

Yeah, I've got a 1440p 27" (viewsonic at work, Dell on the way for home). I wouldn't want any higher res, or I'll have to turn on display...

For that price I got the surface pro 7, i5 CPU, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD, and even the keyboard (horribly overpriced, but integrates well) and...

It's just swapping the roast chicken for crispy.

Not sure why so much hate here. I've got the 36" with 4 drawers + top lid on the top section, and 2 large drawers and a cupboard on the...

I haven't cooked that recipe in about 4 years, but yes it's quite nice. I much prefer a chook cooked on my bbq rotisserie though

set up an RPi on their network that sends the smart plug the reset command if it can't ping google for a few minutes.

Ah good call. I might get one of the grid connect dual output smart GPOs for our washer and dryer

They only carry a single drink variety in the 250mL bottles. You can upgrade to any flavour can for an extra $1
22/01/2020 - 16:26
Yeah we do similar, except we use a budgeting app to assign a monthly “fun money” allowance, not even in separate accounts. Some times...
