Media - new toys
We've also gone whole-hog and replaced ALL of our outdoor gardening equipment with battery-powered stuff from a company called EGO. It's apparently extremely well-regarded and is as good as petrol so I'm keen to see how it goes.

Woohoo, my two extra ESP32s arrived, and just in time for my four-day weekend! Going to be doing a bunch of mucking around with MQTT.

Aww yisssss! (Now hopefully it works with Guitar Hero... I've seen anecdotal reports that it does, but nothing official from the manufacturer). Also this controller is over ten years old now and the plastic is doing that weird thing where it gets sticky, so I'll need to clean it up.

Oh hell yeah, in continuing with the "Stuff arriving earlier than expected" theme, my drum stool, kick pedal, and drum sticks were just delivered!

Good news! The drum kit is set up and works perfectly. Bad news, the reason there was a delivery estimate of Wednesday and why I received the drum kit today is because the kit was shipped directly from Roland's warehouse in Dee Why, but the drum stool, kick pedal, and drumsticks are coming from the place I ordered them from in Newcastle, and those three things are what're arriving on Wednesday. 😛

Well uh, that arrived significantly faster than I was expecting (Australia Post said the ETA was Wednesday next week).

Got myself a handsome new Apple Watch band!

::consumerism intensifies:: (Work is paying for $875 of the headphones, aw yiss).

YES! My first set of properly-fancy brushes. Very excited to take them for a spin.

Woohoo, my new guitar input arrived! I took it for a quick spin and the sound quality is noticeably improved over the old one, everything sounds crisper and clearer (old was 16-bit/44.1KHz, new one is 24-bit/96KHz). This was paid for by selling some of that funny money that Keybase gave everyone a few years back, turns out it's actually worth something now!
