This summer, circumstances led to me BBQing at least one meal every weekend. It was great.

I've kept at it fairly frequently this fall and winter, and have learned a couple things I would like to pass on.

The electronic billboards at Picadilly Circus are to be upgraded

"Land Securities’ partner, Ocean Outdoor, hope to tempt new advertisers to join the big names currently featured on the boards. Twitter and Facebook feeds will appear on the revamped version alongside live video feeds."
What could possibly go wrong?

The new one has convinced me that my vast array of RCA adapters and splitters are now obsolete.

OK, so I've planned my weekend shopping expedition based on the fliers in this morning's paper.

Bed/Bath/Beyond - quadcopter drone

Cabella's - scented candles

Best Buy - pots and pans

Unfortunately none of the hardware stores seem to have a sale on turkeys, maybe next week.

Some updates on the New PC

Man, it’s quiet. And fast. Have it set to slow boot, which inserts a 30 second delay before booting so I can decide whether or not I want to hit F2 and do BIOS setup. Then in 15 seconds or so it’s ready for login. Bought a Das Keyboard 4, which is awesome, and a 1TB SATA SSD for the data and temp folders. Total system cost is now approaching $2k.
