After getting a home I have the itch to get Smart Home stuff.

Might start with a Hue light bulb set and go from there.

Does the backlighting on the TV relate to what's on screen?
I've got an ambilight-style setup on my pc using strip LEDs and an arduino for processing. Looks friggen neat with Netflix, cost ~$50.

How difficult is it to make it work? Sounds like it would be a really neat feature.

I was raised to not do things I wouldn't want done to myself. And that's why anal sex is off the agenda.

A thingy from some kid in the USA who designed this and 3D printed it... hides all the GH Mini cables and makes shit look tidy.

That's awesome, but how does it go in Aussie plugs? Enough room to plug in a charger next to it?

That's the american version, the guy is actually creating an Aussie version specifically because I asked - he wanted a design that hid all the cables.

I'll report back once I've received it :)

You can buy them prebuilt (lightberry - $400 odd) which seem to work better for TV/hdmi driven devices, or if you like tinkering (basic arduino copy + paste, little bit of soldering) it can be done in an afternoon but is limited more to computer only as it needs the program (Prismatik) to run.

I have a bottle of Tanqueray already. Getting Bombay Sapphire to see how they differ in taste in various concoctions.

Loved this drop when we toured the Hunter region, so decided in indulge in a bottle last night - can't drink like I used to, so one bottle was more than enough to make me tipsy. Contrary to what Nekosan might say, I dispute having a 'drunk voice'.

Lined up with the masses this morning and scored one of these neat rocking chairs from Aldi.

Bloody thing didn't fit in the car, so we had to unbox it and put it in the car in parts - saw a lady leaving the store with one and heading to her Hyundai Getz, and all I can say is there was no way she was getting that chair home in that car! We only just fit it in our Jeep Grand Cherokee.
