Hell Of A Ride

This video was posted in August of 2016, just for the fun of it. I liked how the false crescendos of the music made you think the condom was going to fail, but then it didn’t, over and over again. It got a few thousand views over the years. Until last week. On April 22,…

Custom Delivery Sign with Sonoff 4Ch WiFi Switch

Whenever we have an Uber come to pick us up, Skip the Dishes bring us dinner, or Drizly bring us some adult beverages, the drivers seem to have a hard time knowing which house is ours. So, I thought a light-up sign would help them to find their way. But of course, I don’t want…
