Watching the 5th element


"Aziz, light!" 😃

Bought a new Multimeter this morning

Can't wait for it to arrive.
Including measuring up to 20 A (yay!) and temperature sensor besides touchless wire check, diode check, frequency measuring and so much more. Heck, even a flashlight is integrated.
Most needed: Checking connectivity of wires and boards. You'll really need that if you deal with retro-stuff :).

Watching "In another world with my smartphone"


That had to happen. Sounds like an awesome anime.
My home is where my smartphone is 🙂📱📶

Playing No Man's Sky


Creative mode makes the most fun.

Reusing my old router as a switch


I needed a 2nd Gigabit Switch. The prices bugged me, so I got an idea.
My old TP-Link router has gigabit ports, so I reconfigured it for working as a switch. Turned off WiFi and any router service. Works nicely.

For the money left, I bought a TP-Link power plug which can be controlled with Google home over WiFi. Yay. "Okay Google, make it warm" 😊

New Setup for the Netcasts


Yupp, that's right. Pixel XL is overtaking audio and video production. Much more features, and much quicker encoding.
It's time for the switch.

Got this retro stuff recently




There are 2 UMDs. A movie and a game for the PSP. I didn't know if that is qualified as being retro, but it sure was a crazy media format to distribute stuff. Weird.
I got some original Gameboy cartridges, and a GBC game that seems to be defective. But I will open the cartridge and see if I can repair it.

The NES module couldn't be tested, but it is in good condition from outside.
A bunch of PS 1 memory cards and V-Rally rounds this loot up😉.

Updating KDE Neon


That was really necessary. Over 700 packages updated. I already see I have to do a distupgrade after that.

Update: KDE Neon 5.11.0 runs like a charm.

I pushed the last tube in Thimbleweed Park


What a great ending. Just like the whole game.

And yes it's worse waiting for the end credits. And I mean all the end credits. 😎

Now ready for some explorations of Nespresso


The 2 exquisite and limited coffees just arrived.
I start with the Colombia Aguadas and spare the Ethiopia Yirgacheffe for later.

These unusually expensive types demands some special treatment.

International Coffee Day 2017! Bring it on!

Yay, here it is October 1st. International Coffee Day.
As if not everyday is coffee day :). But yes, bring it on!

First start: Nespresso Barista Corto (Espresso). Later on I'm going for a  Nespresso Indriya made as a Lungo.
