Twice the HomePods, at a discount.

A few ago I found out that Verizon was selling second generation HomePods in “Midnight” at a discount.

I ordered two of the HomePods immediately since I like the original HomePods sound than their “mini” counterparts.

Both HomePods were delivered the next day.

Two (HomePod) boxes with invoice from Verizon priced at $349.98 before sales tax.

As of this writing, Verizon has sold out of the “Midnight” HomePods.

Package 3 of 2?

Well, package #3 was completely something we did not plan and did happen. To be honest, it’s supposed to be only one package, but plan changed.

At first, we’re planning only to acquire the Red, Black and White EVH Wolfgang Special Striped Series, thanks to a pretty nice discount offered by the vendor. Another vendor made an offer to us for the Yellow and Black 🐝 EVH Wolfgang Special Striped Series.

Late last week, the first vendor made another offer that really tempted us. Now we have completed the series.


We’re going to get these guitars inspected by our favorite luthier who is also a Fender/EVH authorized repair service provider.

Going 2.5 Gbps part deux

Late last year, I added a 10 Gbps Ethernet adapters to our Synology DiskStations. I installed NETGEAR 10-Port Gigabit/10G Ethernet Plus Switch (GS110EMX) so that 8 computers we have at the office can each have full Gigabit connection to the main DiskStation.

At home office, I have TP-Link TL-SG108-M2, 8 Port 2.5 Gigabit Switch installed. That’s because 10 Gbps switches are still expensive, and I’m also concerned about the amount of heat they currently generate.

Anyway, I’m now 2.5 Gbps compliant at home office.

This post is all about “Clicks”

I just received “Clicks” keyboard case for iPhone today.

iPhone 15 Pro Max with “Clicks” Keyboard Case in “London Sky” color

I backed the project some months and months ago and opted for the “London Sky” color for iPhone 15 Pro Max.

I did not have any phones with “full” physical keyboard before. I used other people’s Blackberry phones or something similar. It is a bit weird to hide physical keyboard on touch-screen phones.

Well, I might post a follow up or two about this keyboard case if i could overcome the urge to procrastinate.

P.S. This post is written using said keyboard case, and in no way an endorsement of the product. I paid for this keyboard case.

Kerry King – “From Hell I Rise”

Late last night I received an email containing the link to download Kerry King’s debut solo record “From Hell I rise”.

Just earlier today, Amazon delivered its exclusive Silver/Red Marbled Vinyl of the record.

Kerry King – “From Hell I Rise” record, Amazon Exclusive Vinyl.

I’ve listened to most of the songs prior to last night and the whole record obviously sounds familiar. I like SLAYER and I like this record too.

I also ordered a copy of the record direct from Kerry King’s official website. According to USPS, it is still en route.

…paragraph deleted because it sounds pretentious and pedantic. 😬

Anyway, I am looking forward to the next record from this lineup.

Package 2 of 2

Another exciting day here at the Headquarters as we unpacked the second package.

EVH Wolfgang Special Striped Series, Black and Yellow, Bumblebee 🐝

I like this version better than the Red Black and White model.

Up next, hopefully by June 2024 we get to complete the collection. Note to guitar shops out there, send us an offer if you have one in stock with the case. You know which one we’re talking about.
