Brain Drain

You know I don’t hate streaming like I used to just dislike that it takes multiple subscriptions to see everything . Be nice if the companies would just share a service , charge more , and split the profits . It’s one of those can’t we all just get along for the greater good scenarios . Answer is going to probably always be no unless a anti-trust law breaking company is allowed . Which if history proves right is bad .

Something I’m curious about I bought a blu-ray player from the uk .

The power adapter reads
Input AC 110-240V, 50/ 60Hz

Output 12v 0.8 amp . With the player listing input as the 12v 0.8amp . Makes me wonder if I had a US plug that had that output if it’d work instead of me running through a step up step down transformer .

Just had this order come through doordash:

Yep. A bun with bacon. That’s all they ordered.

Yes, as long as you have the appropriate plug to match the player then any adapter that outputs 12v ( AC or DC, whichever one the player requires. ) and at least .8 AMP will work.

Amps can be higher than .8, the player will only pull what it needs.

Be careful of the AC vs DC and the +/ - DC pin polarity if that is what it uses.

I ended up thinking about it a little more I realized if the input to the power plug is 110-240v then it’s worldwide compatible.

So I went with a 110 - 250 v power strip with a US plug ,but with the foreign sockets . It’s a cheap one ,but only one on Amazon that had good reviews other then the cord only being a foot long . Everything worked as it should . So guess I spent $25 on a step up step down I did not need . Ah well I guess I’m prepared if I ever do need one .

Just ordered another record case since with Tiger labs and The KOR imports it’s going to flow over my second case .

I reported a issue last month to funi that fixed itself like 5 minutes after so I followed up saying it’s fixed . I get an email saying they reported it to their digital division today .

Can you manually sort your queue? If so, there’s something wrong with my account.

Question.

Should a plain cheeseburger have cheese on it?

And if your answer is “Yes”, just as I thought, why did I get a 1800# complaint under my name because the person wanted two beef patties on a big mac bun and nothing else?

So heard this meowing out back . Look out the window to see this munchkin kitten in distress . It got lost . I go out back to lead it back to our responsible neighbors . :unamused: :roll_eyes:

It chased me around for a bit . Never thought something with that tiny of legs could move that fast . Thought I got it back to where it belongs . Notice our outside Kitty was up to the trying to run across the road deal . So run after her . Start calling her here comes this fluffy short little rocket darting up behind me . Had to go get some help . They finally lead the little bugger through the woods out back of where he belongs to the back door and it stayed hopefully . Not sure why they let something that is basically a bite sized snack to the foxes and owls around here outside .

Decided to replace the Crosley briefcase to a better entry level turntable with Bluetooth . Once I get more space I’ll pick up a better setup .
Ended up with .

I wish I’d have bought a extra Zero Two Nendoroid .


Glad I did get her ,but I think I probably should store her better and get her a case after seeing the prices .

Also wish I would have picked up Chocola and Vanilla Nendoroids and Pop Up Parades when they first came out . The Nendoroid’s are still somewhat priced okish ,but the pop up parades are over a $100 each .

So the turntable did not work out . The Bluetooth kept disconnecting on me . Thought it was my stuff ,but they work fine on everything else . It’s a shame as the little bit it worked sounded great . Either going to return this one and replace it with the same model or keep looking for another .

So, I bought some cube thingys from Ikea to allow me to clear out space on my desk so I have room for a second monitor, and anyone remember when you got a sticky pad from Right Stuf?

I find them on occasion when I’m going through stuff . Those and the El Hazard playing cards I’d throw in when I needed a dollar or two shipping filler .

I think Crunchyroll may know me…

(The joke would have been funnier if at least one of the TLR series was in “Top Picks” though…)
