A new 90W Lenovo brick for $10, a used 3TB full height 3.5" HDD for $40, and my wife bought a used Bosu for $100. Circled the city about 1.75 times to get it all.

After a sleepless night of Googling, configuring & cussing (getting too old for these), it looks like the little Win10 mini-PC is going to work great in the car. It'll have a wireless display of artist folders & playlists via Android tablet clipped to the dash, but a small key-mapped IR remote with real buttons for all control input. I find it's much easier to keep eyes on the road with this combination instead of trying to push virtual buttons on the tablet's touchscreen, since the remote can be operated by feel.

One really fun feature is wake-on-wireless-LAN, which allows me to sync the music collection in the car from my nice warm living room while it's sitting in the garage! Doesn't get any lazier than this!

Anyway - this morning I splurged a bit and ordered a petite 1TB M.2 2242 SSD to tuck into the little mini-PC. It's working now with an old 2.5" external USB drive for music storage, but that thing's just too slooow, man.

I just received a Dayton DATS v3. This thing is smaller than I expected.

Shame on me. I just did it again. Found a helluva deal on Amazon.ca for a new production "Bugera" branded 5U4 (coke bottle). Almost certainly made by Shuguang by the looks of it, which is fine with me. I have had relatively good luck with Chinese tubes in the past.

$14.99 Canuck Bucks and free shipping. How could I not buy it?

It actually looks identical to the "Preferred Series" 5U4G from thetubestore.com (which is indeed made by Shuguang and sells for over $50 CAD plus shipping ).

I got some 6N1P and 6J1P tubes - the latter being a decent tube triode strapped.

I bought a CitroŽn c3 car today, because this morning I wrecked my old car hitting a deer head on at 90kmh.
