Nice! I'm looking to build "something" to hold storage among other things for the house as a whole. Hopefully a hub for the home, but all wired. I'm not interested in wireless smart home, but I'm fine running cable throughout. Just an initial thought without any research - home isn't even complete yet - but I've already got a specific place planned for it with ready access to the attic to run throughout the house. Should be an exciting project... especially since I have no idea what I'm doing!

You can never have too much conduit. When my brother and I installed the one conduit run from the attic to the crawlspace, I thought it'd be plenty big enough. Not so much. I wish we would have installed a second run. He's coming out here next month, so maybe we can do it then. I'd love to run more CAT6 to other areas of the house, but first I have to finish installing walkways in the attic.

Good point! Its proposed location will be right up against an exterior wall in a room's closet to be used as a media room. So, long (and many) runs to anywhere I need it to go as the only things near it are other bedrooms and my office. Everywhere I feel I need "stuff" is going to be clear shot across the house.

Can't wait to build my spreadsheet

Thing runs fantastic now and no leaks. Even did the timing chain, crank gasket and valve seals and also upgraded the coolant crossover to the metal version from ECS. Wasn't the easiest car to work on but once you put it in front end service mode it wasn't world ending. Getting ready to do the suspension once the parts get here. This car has the most hidden features I've seen.

It’s one of 1 e91 xi manuals in that color combo.


Safely home and unpacked. The mini needs more of a bath after sitting in long term parking at airport for 4.5 days than the e91 does after the last 1200 miles driven (washed it to get salt off when I got to MS).

Replaced my 14 year old bissell garage pro with a new garage pro. I checked other ones out, but I knew this one works well and stuck with it.
I figured I’d also get a new blower for the residual water that BMWs like to hang onto after a wash and got an Adam’s cannon.
Today was like suck and blow Christmas for me

Tru dat. And colored ones are best for securing Christmas lights to trees and bushes. Makes them much easier to find and snip when you're taking the lights down.

Bought a new toy because I almost got ripped off a couple of days ago when I was trying to buy a used car.
No accidents on the Carfax, but when I asked for paint readings over half the car had been repainted.

I have a few smart switches and plugs around the house, but no smart bulbs. Figure this is a cheap way ($10.00/bulb for this size) to dip my toes in the smart bulb pond....
