    Had to replace my pressure regulator. The old one was old when I installed it 15+ years ago, and it finally started leaking last month. :) Something I found strange - I had my filter/dryer installed after the regulator before, to make sure it got regulated pressure and therefore reduce the chances of the housing shattering. The guy at the store said to install it 25' from the compressor to give the air tone to cool off so water will condense out of it. That makes sense. The instructions for this regulator say to install it before the regulator to prevent corrosion inside the regulator.

    The closer you mount the regulator to the tank will give you the most accurate pressure readings. The further downstream you mount it will result in lower pressure readings as the temperature difference affects the gauge. Remember your high school physics (Amonton's Law) that stated pressure is directly proportional to temperature when volume is constant. That's also why they tell you to measure the air pressure in your tires when they're cold. Drive a few miles and your reading will be higher without adding a drop of air.

    For most applications this would be a moot point but if you're using sensitive paint sprayers an incorrect setting is the difference between a beautiful paint job and unwanted, forced hair loss.

    I think my wording may have been a bit unclear. I was referring to the location of the filter/dryer. I've always had it downstream of the regulator, because I don't want it getting full tank pressure, and probably I asked a friend with more experience when I set it up. This new regulator says to put the filter/dryer upstream from the regulator to remove moisture before the air gets to the regulator. I've never seen them set up that way (then again, I haven't seen that many). I wonder how it is routed on the "all in one" regulator and filter assemblies?

    PlayStation 5!!!! *not pictured*

    I seriously managed to snag a PS5 from Best Buy. I then immediately sold it to a friend for the exact price I paid for it. I'm not sure who was more excited; her or her kids!


    ...okay so maybe I rounded up and made a .01 cent profit from it.

    After much foot dragging, I got myself another external hard drive. A 2TB WD, nothing like redundant backup!!

    Wasn't planning to get one, but I was at the mall, more for window shopping for replacements for.... . (a) my dead fitbit & (b) battery for my laptop.

    Side story, the number of IT shops in this mall has dwindled to less than a third of what it used to be.
    Covid changed our priorities.

    My Stryde bike just arrived yesterday and haven't set it up - but I'll take care of that after work today. Was looking at a Peloton, but they have the ability to lock the monitor into only their service and remove/change functionality of the hardware as they wish (like they are removing the ability to use any heart monitor you want (now has to be theirs) = no more Apple watch functionality).
    Stryde has nearly the same hardware, but the monitor is running on Android and the allow you to sideload any apps you want. Don't want to use the Stryde classes because you are bored - go ahead and download the Peloton app (which is only $12/mo instead of the $40 you pay with a their bike). Or you can load any other bike apps or classes you want such as iFit or NordicTrak. You can also load Netflix, Amazon Prime Movies, HBO, etc... Not being locked into that biking company's application only and being able to do whatever I want with my bike's screen was a huge seller! All that and a couple hundred bucks cheaper than Peloton. :)

    This is something I've thought about buying for years, but finally really needed one for a project I'm finishing. I like that this is more compact than full-size routers. It sure throws wood chips like a full size router though!

    Microsoft 4k Wireless Display Adapter. Got it on a mild sale at Best Buy and hooked it up to my TV. Works pretty well with my Surface Go 2. There's some noticeable, but expected, lag. Otherwise, I didn't have a problem with it. I would try it on my monitor but I have too much plugged in already.

    Ugh... not a purchase that was expected, but my old refrigerator had a board go out on it keeping it from getting cold enough to be safe for food. New one is awesome - old one now is my beer fridge in the garage (it may not have gotten cold enough for food, but good enough for beer!).

    Ugh, my fridge crapped out on Saturday. Thanks to OfferUp and owning a pickup truck I landed this bad boy dirt cheap and almost new for well under a grand. At this price I believe “scratch and dent” refers to the damage inflicted when it “fell off the truck”.

    That’s so cool. I’ve always been envious, for lack of a better word, of people with artistic abilities. There is no way I could’ve ever dreamed of doing something like that.

    So many years of dreaming about a surfboard. Saw it today . It's my passion now. I'm even willing to take out a small loan. But it's definitely worth it. Dreams have to come true otherwise what are they for? I also want to swim with a whale shark. The main thing then do not want to buy a shark) tesla-limited-edition-surfboard_m.jpg

    Any chance related to socket not fitting lug nuts? The factory nuts are notorious for the thin shiny outer shells being damaged by too many on/offs or even as little as one ham-fisted impact on or off. Sometimes a slightly larger socket will work a few times, sometimes not.

    Or do the new wheels use a different seat type of lug nut? After picture appears to show factory type 60 degree bulge nuts.
