Made a USB-C to 12v barrel jack cable with a lil PD trigger board I got for a couple bucks off eBay!!

Works great with the 30,000 mAh (150 Wh) USB battery I also got off eBay for like 45 bucks. I love how the cheapest available batteries of this capacity class are just consumer USB batteries

Can’t wait til this catches on and every profile edit page has a reminder that people want me dead

This is definitely one of Melbourne’s wildest bike path sceneries

What level carbrain is it drive your BMW SUV on the bike path?

I replaced my passive unbalanced->balanced transformers (second pic) with an active DRV134 board I got from eBay. It sounds much worse than the transformers though, which have their own frequency response issues, bummer :\

There are 14 parked bikes at the Barkly Square racks, and 11 parked cars in this entire row of parking spots next to it.

EVs won’t save us - they’ll just make the problem worse.

I took this quick selfie while out for a ride the other day, and I’m really really happy with how I look in it??? :’)

This bike path is a “strategic cycling corridor”, but that’s no match for the mighty car brain 🙃
