  1. Happy belated Birthday! Work had me offline for most of the last 2 days so blame the government, we probably deserve it.
  2. This. All of this. I used to build my own power cables too, but mostly just for fun and I don't think I ever spent more than $20 or $30 in parts which still felt silly.
  3. Yes, "traditional" armadillo eggs are just* sausage packed jalapeños stuffed with one's choice of cream cheese and cheese (that's my choice) and some add BBQ rub or spices too but I prefer au naturel. But then I found the recipe that said to wrap them in bacon and I was like, "Why the fuck not?" I definitely got a look or two while preparing them, but all objections were silenced upon sampling. I'm now imagining working any leftover bits, if there are such a thing, into an omelette. Because life deserves complicated breakfast. * Note that there is nothing just about non-bacon wrapped armadillo eggs. They too are delicious. But, you know, bacon and all that.
  4. Decided to try some non-brisket things on the Traeger. 1. 3-2-1 ribs (rubbed, used too much brown sugar, will adjust down next time, but still came out great) After 3hrs in the smoke 2. Bacon wrapped armadillo eggs (stuffed jalapeños wrapped in sausage) ^^^These were delicious. Also, definitely not sad that I went with the bigger model Ironwood as I also tossed some chicken breasts on there for good measure and didn't have to to use the second shelf and worry about cross pollination from the non-pork product.
  5. Even if the new ones are introduced with a chipset that you don't like there will likely be closeouts, refurbs and other options that will make it possible to purchase just about whatever you want (within reason).

    Good idea for a thread. I'll be listening to the one that you posted. One of my favorites - https://www.hdtgminfo.com/
  7. Thanks Kerry. I've got some thoughts on really building my own after these first two. The biggest hurdle in this build was simply assembling and mounting the crossovers, which once completed reminded me very much of my point to point wiring adventures back in the day and was quite fun. The next project should be easier (more interior space) but the long term vision is to use the CNC router to build an enclosure for some leftover drivers and tweeters that I have from a long-abandoned speaker building project and make some that I'll actually use. I will say, the little 6" sub in this thing, along with the passive radiator on the back, produces impressive results.
  8. It's "reasonably sized" (official dimensions - 9" H x 20" W x 6" D) and the main use will be out in the back yard and in the shop. https://www.parts-express.com/executive-200-watt-portable-bluetooth-speaker-kit--300-7164
  9. So, back on topic, I decided to get back into DIY and actually build something. Parts Express Executive Bluetooth Speaker. The cabinet still needs finishing, but it works and sounds pretty darn decent.
  10. @Hopstretch - one assumes that you already know about Ms. Bridgers' new album? https://pitchfork.com/news/phoebe-bridgers-releases-new-album-punisher-listen/ Unlikely to be uplifting, but that's not always what the Dr. ordered.
  11. I'll look into that, thanks.
  12. I think it's unrealistically low. 😭
  13. Nice! I still look occasionally for a "reasonable" ICE Power kit for a ~$200W/ch stereo amp for a friend that needs something small and portable. I haven't found one that doesn't bust the budget yet.
  14. Since when is necessary a measuring stick around here? I'll shoot you a message with the dimensions that I need and we can go from there.
