    I've always wanted one of those drill guides, but they're not cheap; I notice Uri Tuchman puts his to a lot of good use.

    Have you a particular job in mind for it?

    Few jobs, making a butchers trolley for one so I need to have dead straight drill holes so they line up. It just saves cocking up so often with wonky drill holes.

    First high end mouse in an absolute age. Last one was £35. I didn't want to go mad until I found one I really wanted.

    It's wireless and wired. Also got this as it was on sale, and again didn't buy one because I couldn't find one I really liked.

    I finally bit the bullet on a new computer chair.
    Last one has lasted 6-7 years so a nice new secretlabs omega is on the way.

    Hopefully this will make gaming more fun again.

    Mavic 2 Pro - much envy! Your wallet will recover.
    Did you get the Fly More Combo? A good collection batteries is essential.
    I've had my used Mavic Pro a couple of months now, and have been seriously impressed with it.
    I still have tons to learn, and technique to work on; but could see that a Mavic 2 Pro making a lot of sense before too long.
    Its photographic capability is better with a less noisy 1" sensor, adjustable aperture and Hasselblad's colour algorithm.
    Shame it's still so windy at the moment, even though it's not raining quite so much.
    The opportunities to fly have been frustrating to say the least.

    Hasselblad camera...? Surprised it wasn't a nuclear asplosion...!
    That said, their lenses are all Carl Zeiss items...

    Sadly it's "Hasselblad" rather than Hasselblad...

    DJI now own a large proportion of what is left of Hasselblad post merger with Imacon and ownership by various venture capital companies over the last 15 years or so.
    The camera is a 1" Sony sensor, so 4x the size of the sensor in the Mavic Pro or Mavic 2 zoom with some custom lens on it and an agjustable aperture system.
    What they've spun into the system is Hasselblad's colour management from their digital system. Sadly no Zeiss glass here :(
    Sony have a licencing system to make Zeiss lenses for their cameras, like Kyocera / Contax did before their sad demise.
    Look at Huawei, they have Leica on some of their phones. like Nokia had Zeiss on some of theirs before they went pop.

    It followed "Nokia" to HMD: My Nokia 7.2 has a dirty gert ZEISS logo in the middle of the three-lens rear camera.

    I found a serious design flaw with the ice cube maker I got for Xmas.
    It doesn't work if you forget to turn it on! :duh:
    So I bought some "Smart" mains adaptors, so Alexa can remember to start it on time for me.
