    It's nice, not too warm, and we went and sat by a lake for a bit. Now I have beer.

    Underneath the desk isn't perfect, but it's a million times better than it was:

    EDIT: And, as I damn well knew it would, it took me ages to make it better. I've been up here doing this for five hours...

    It's not all glory, but considering how it was done and it's a test run for future endeavours it ain't bad. I'll do a little write up tomorrow.

    The tea cake* wrapper concept I made for a rather well-known online tea retailer's Year of the Pig competition earlier this year is actually going to be used for real tea, one that real people all over the world are going to be able to purchase for years to come, and I'm even getting paid for it!
    I've been so giddy since I got the email that I can't get to sleep.

    Collected some possibly-bricked-or-otherwise-faulty bits I won in the Superfi liquidation auction today - one of them was factory fresh, two were opened but came up as-new with a wipe down, and all of it works. Score.

    I kinda did, but only kinda - https://forums.bit-tech.net/index.php?threads/denon-vr-x3500h-x3400h-or-avr-x4500h-x4400h.360005/

    Nobody missed out on the bargain of the century - I bowed out of many lots because the price approached or exceeded expected s/h prices or in some cases even street retail price.

    I was bidding on over 30 lots at one point - multiples of the same item and the structure of the auction meant backing one horse wasn't really feasible, and the possibility of winning all of them meant I needed to be able to break even if I had to sell some on. I came away with only three from that 30+ because the rest of them went beyond what I considered to be a fair deal.
