    I've actually been powering mine from a 5.25V microUSB supply via a microUSB-to-Type-C adapter. Works a treat. The official Type-C power supplies weren't a thing when it arrived.
    Nah, you can do the same (assuming the microUSB PSU you've got is up to the task of driving the Pi 4 and the display at the same time): Four-pack of microUSB to Type-C adapters, £5.91. Useful little buggers, those!

    There are proper HATS but to be honest you're probably as well going for a cheap USB-connected receiver, save yourself a bit of cash. That one linked is fully compatible with Linux, though it won't give you the battery-backed RTC of the Adafruit HAT.

    More for interesting encounters on the road rather than traffic. Usually have some very early in the AM country drives and see all sorts. Including Deer running away from me and on another occasion a couple of fully grown horses racing towards me, minus any riders! Fortunately for me the horses took the left hand lane, still wish I picked it up on dashcam though!

    Mmm. I hope you don't get frozen pizza. Besides the little Chicagotown ones they don't tend to fit.

    Yes I know frozen pizza is ****, but I'm a ganet and lazy as. And I love pizza.

    Dam it I want pizza now.

    Yeah, I clocked that too but usually don't last long enough to make it to the freezer.

    If all else fails i'll unbox it and rely on my trusty friend 'slight angle'.

    Too right. It may need the help of a chainsaw but i'll get myself into there somehow.

    When we bought our toaster, I took a couple of slices of Warburtons toastie with me as I wanted to ensure I get 4 slices in vertically so it was all toasted at the same time. Got some funny looks in Debenhams.

    5mm vac hose because I've relocated my amal valve in the RS, so it doesn't risk rubbing on anything and, more importantly, allows me to move the wiring harness so it looks a bit less ****.
    Replacement power steering feed hose because although the steel braided feed hose does what it's meant to, it's a bit bulky and now with all the other crap in that area it's getting a bit too cramped for an unnecessarily fat hose.

    Find somewhere to stand that in London, somewhere expensive like Kensington, call it a Bijou Stand-up Apartment and make a massive profit.:grin:

    For 20 Euros I consider this one of the best bargain buys in gaming history.

    :jawdrop: I loved playing settlers on the Amiga and got a bit addicted to settlers online for a while. Might have to get this for when I'm recovering from my op.
