itch.io Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality Game Reviews Part 3 The itch.io Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality just keeps on giving. This is part 3 of my attempt to give a quick review of every game in it I try. You can also check out the first part and second part. …

French Cleats and Wood Storage I made some workshop upgrades again. Wood Storage under the Stairs We have some dead space behind the stairs to the cellar (where the workshop is located). You can just squeeze by if you must, but it's not an easily accessible space. Right when I saw it for the first time, this screamed…

MiniDLNA vs. MiniSSDP on Synology DiskStation I am running MiniDLNA (or ReadyMedia as it seems to be called nowadays) on my Synology DiskStation to access movies from my Samsung SmartTV and BluRay player via UPnP/DNLA. The MiniDNLA package was installed by adding a the custom package source…

itch.io Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality Game Reviews Part 2 This is the second part of my attempt to give each game in the itch.io Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality a quick review. You can also check out the first part. …

DIY Bench We needed a place to store a few more shoes in our house's entry area. There isn't really a good place in the mud room for it, so I came up with the idea of putting some storage in front of the door, right at the top of the stairway. There's just enough room next to the door to have a little bench. It should provide room for garden shoes, rubber boots and some storage for things like gloves and Kaddi's favorite garden shears.…

itch.io Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality Game Reviews Popular indie games platform itch.io recently ran a thing where they sold a games bundle to support the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund and Community Bail Fund in lights of recent events around the murder of George Floyd and others by the police. The bundle was absolutely massive, containing more than a thousand items consisting of indie games, soundtracks, visual novels, comics and game assets.…

Table Saw Workbench with Custom Fence A few weeks ago, I finally got a table saw. I was lucky -- a local shop had it on offer for a reduced price because the box had been damaged. So I got for a hundred bucks less than usual :-). The saw I bought is a…

Trash Solution 3 It seems finding a good solution for trash in the kitchen is a reoccurring problem for Kaddi and me. You may remember solution 1 and solution 2 from a few years back. But with the new house the large bench for storing trash no longer fit in the kitchen. Instead we're using it for laundry in the bedroom now.…

Workshop Upgrades The cellar and future workshop is still a big mess with lots of boxes and stuff that hasn't found it's place, yet. But at least two projects are done now to give the shop a bit more space. The shop vacuum is now hooked up to a cyclone system and both got their own little vertical shelf. I will probably add a top lid and a way to to attach the accessories to it. I also need to find a better way for turning it on and off, because the power button is now very awkward to reach.…

Moved (House Update) It's done. I'm typing this at my desk in the new house. It has been about three months since the last update, so I guess I have to catch up a lot. Electricity In my last update I was still working on the wiring. For quite a while all connections at the fuse box where temporary only and I somewhat procrastinated to properly wire it up because that required cutting the cables to the proper length. And once you cut a cable you cannot undo it.…
