3D models now available on thingiverse (#E12)

Quick note mixed with a bit of a “this is stupid” rant – as there’s quite a bit of 3D models coming in the near future (say…1.5 meters of them), I decided to put that stuff on thingiverse as well. It’s still hosted and linked here on this blog, but having it duplicated on an easy-to-search platform like thingiverse might be helpful for people with limited Google-fu. It’s also a nice source of somewhat standardized renderings from those parts, which I exploited in the previous post already.

DIY USB Micro panel mount connector (#P13F1)

Oh yeah, that has been sitting around for a while…

E27 to E14 Base LED Light Bulb Lamp Converter Screw Socket Adapter Holder Lamp Holder Converter (WHL #55)

I had an oopsie yesterday. Last December I got a bunch of E14 LED lights for free, but there’s no E14 lamp left in my home, only E27s. So as there are E27 (light) to E14 (socket) adapters (which I have in stock), I bought matching E14 to E27 adapters on our favourite Wan Hung Lo shopping website for 0.44€ a piece (x4, shipping included). Those came in some day this week.

While cleaning up a table I ran across these, and following the five minute rule, I decided to not just put them away to test stuff later, but to just pop in a light and verify they’re working. […]

Spam that made it through my filter (#R8)

Sven from made it through my Thunderbird spam filter. Which is notable because all that crap (which hosts as well) is basically dead to me because there is a 1-ε chance that it is spam.

Well, nice that this one came through. A jewel of advertising!
