    We're also going to bulb. I wasn't aware of that. Seems odd.

    That reminds me, ours is up soon. Need to check the readings and get the old consumption spreadsheet out.

    We're 100% renewable (although it's currently impossible to have that delivered to your house unless you do it yourself)

    We're with Bulb too...

    Its an accounting thing, they obviously cant guarantee that the power you use comes direct from a renewable source, its just they buy (wholelsale) only electricity from renewable sources; which they then sell on to their customers...

    If anyone is thinking of signing up to bulb (or @MLyons you fancy trying to persuade their customer service to retroactively add it, we've done it and others have done for us); you can use the following LINK and we both get £50 credit on our accounts :D

    I'm not getting involved. I did the maths to work out what we'd save from changing from a PoS pay as you go meter to bulb and it was 20-30% with the benefit of live usage monitoring and no more early morning trips to get electric on weekends. I ****-post here to get paid. Then I gave my mum the instructions and my bank details. She handles the rest. I've sent her the link though.

    I just switched to Octopus too, using their version of the "£50 each" referral code from a work colleague.
    My endgame is to move to their "Octopus Go" or "Octopus Agile" tariff, so I can charge my car for the cheaps*.

    * - Sometimes, when it's windy, the price per kW/h goes negative on Agile overnight, so I'd make money charging my car!

    As a parting post (here), I've recently taken delivery of a Meshify C & two AER F140 fans... no pic's, but I doubt you'll need them.

    This thing. For a bit of a steal, at ~50 USD. In a place where LEGO normally costs almost double what it should, I am happy.[​IMG]

    I used to use that mouse and I was quite happy with it. But in AFPS the sensor really shows weaknesses. Also, it's one heavy mouse!

    Are you using the stock camera app to record video? Might be worth having a look at third-party applications, as they'll often let you manually control settings like gain.
