I have a second doorbell because the one in the living room is too far away to hear from the computer - especially with music playing - but it uses up AA batteries far too quickly and I don't easily notice that it's no longer ringing with the main one. So I connected it up to a USB port instead...
(The third "new ..." post in just over a month).
I now have a Carrera Subway 1:
A rechargeable front light (which won't fly off the bike if I hit a pothole like my current one) will be very useful:
I can also go to Tesco without trying to cycle home with heavy weights on each handlebar:
The only downside is that I must now put my cycle lock through the wheels instead of just the frame every time I leave it because both of them can be removed without tools.
It's close to two months since I decided to replace proxima's aging hardware and two returned motherboards later I finally moved everything over on friday. It's much faster.
It's also been snowing tonight... started soon after I left for Tesco :/.
My new alarm clock has arrived - now I won't get woken up at 7 at the weekend and can't be late for work because I forget to set an alarm. I do already have one but it's always illuminated (I can't read it from bed anyway) and only has a daily alarm.
