So I haven't been playing Fallout 4 for over a year and I am a bit rusty to say the least. I started a new game to join the Institute, my least favorite faction just to see it and now the time has come to choose sides.
I have purchased a remote controlled switch, running on 12v, capable of switching up to 250v(if you dare). It has 5 remotes included. Maybe for a Halloween project or something else.
It is simple, easy to use and cheap.
I'm no @bigclivedotcom and this isn't my usual format so bear with me. :D

So this is a rather long video so here's some chapters in case you are in a hurry.:

It is always fun do dig into stuff and so I am looking at which sites and services on the internet that car is talking to. Amazon, Apple, Google or others?

All microphones are not created equal. Here we can hear how much a difference it makes when you have to make sacrifices.
See chapters below for which microphones are used when.
If you want to see more videos about differences between microphones, check out @Booth Junkie who, unlike me, knows what he is doing.

I use a bunch of Rode microphones so we will be listening to the Røde NT1a, the SmartLav, Wireless Filmmaker, built in GoPro, built in Panasonic GH5s.

I probably have been watching too much @Pan TheOrganizer lately, but here's a 1 minute summary of how I do my weekly maintenance wash. I don't always apply the coating, it depends on how the water behaves when I wash it.
I might switch to the Turtle Wax ceramic coating, but their latest product isn't available in Europe yet, so I have already purchased one of their latest version available around here.

Doctors just HATE him for telling you this secret.
This will make it a lot more comfortable to wear a face mask. Now you can breathe freely.

I wonder why?
In case you wondered,
it's a joke.

Even though the current state of the planet makes it hard to go shopping for a new car, I finally got an EV and I hope I will never have to drive an ICE car again.

The Peugeot e-208 should have been out at the beginning of the year but was delayed, and now with the current situation it has been even further delayed. No word yet as to when we can expect to see it.
So far they have gone complete radio silent since December.

Going through a selection of spare parts for pinball machines, since we have to #stayhome why not have a look at them #withme. It's mostly for Bally/Midway Williams machines but there's some generic stuff included.
So if you feel like hanging out, welcome. Now let's look at some awesome #pinball stuff.

First you get the money, then you get the power, then you get the toilet paper.

Today I am testing a few USB cables that I use for charging and they are not all created equal.

So I have gotten quite a few views on my Twinkly light videos so I have bought a third set of lights. Today I will be unboxing them, connect them to my WiFi and firmware upgrade them, ready for me to install them.

Just a lazy Sunday evening Planet Coaster, I have no idea what I am doing, but I working on a Water Fountain show.

I had a lot of problems figuring out what I wanted as graphic art or banner if you will, on my channel. So I created this virtual wall with, stickers, banners and other miscellaneous things attached. All made in The Gimp, since it was free. And now it is really skookum since I have bought a banner from AvE.

So as you know, I have been considering buying an EV and the options seem to grow in 2020. I made a deposit to get on the waiting list for the Peugeot e-208 and so I got a call from the local dealership that wanted to talk to me.

Having used one of the Twinkly lights for two years now and the other one time, I take a look at them again to see if there is anything new in the app and if they still work and are ready for Christmas since I missed Halloween. :D
If you want more Twinkly Light stuff, I have a playlist here:

So I signed up and paid 800€ for a reservation of the Peugeot e-208 and until now the specs and price of the different variants has not been all that detail but today I got an email with the specifics. So I am having a bit of quality going through them. It includes the Active, Allure, GT Line and the GT as well.

I bought Rollercoaster Tycoon for the 4 times to play it and see if it is still worth playing after all these years. It was a game that I played a lot back in the day and I had a lot of fun with it, but it isn't always good to go back to old games and revisit them. So let's see what happens.

Some people are easier to detect than other. :D

I have a look at the GoPro GPS Telemetry that it can record along with the video and wonder how I can put it to good use.

One of the great tinkers. As seen on TV. Making mostly positive videos about whatever I feel like. Usually, gadgets, tinkering with stuff, but the odd other videos now and then.
I wonder if this "about/basic info" is actually read by anyone?
