Thought I'd try a different Time Lapse Video since it was my phones idea to bring up such an opportunity. Note the rookie error - forgot the buttons... went back for them. =]

I don't believe the backs on Nexus 4's are any sort of special glass, evidently after dropping it a foot from the uneven tarmac surface it landed. Glad it landed butter side up although I think the front glass would have taken it, possibly... =]

Very cool and practical idea, no more mining around for upside-down USBs on the floor. =]

This does inspire me to keep an eye out for my panel mount USBs to make a manual 2 way switcheroo for my twin USB camera which apparently are one camera, even though they do have different addresses...

That accidental cable route and nearly a strain relief is great!
Don't you just love it when a plan completely falls apart then comes back together even better afterwards!

Keep up these mini-projects, really do like these as it's nice and short easy to watch and to the point and reassures it's not just myself that likes to make even the tiniest little things easier for next time.

I should really document a few of mine even if they seem either very insignificant at the time or off subject. I will consider a few of mine before I start them instead of afterwards... =]

Now that you have a decent camera and an editing suite, always consider videoing, even if the video turns out not to be suitable to post, at least you won't say "i wish i made a video", also something that may seem insignificant at the time may turn out to be useful for someone else, even if it only serves to give an idea from one tiny bit of your vid.
Also, if you want to make written documentation, i started doing it with Googlesites, you can create a free website style that includes text, embedded vids, multiple pages, and a side menu.

Actually, i would bet the smaller meters don't have the contactor, a CT doesn't take much room.
The small ones would only read your usage and send it back.
Also, i thought they sent the info back to base using the power lines, anything wireless has hacking potential

+ComfortElectrics yeah but as long as I don't do anything too crazy and the bills get paid then there shouldnt be any reason for it to disconnect. No more worrying than a HRC fuse or line isolation lever on a pole really.

Excellent tip there Sparky, will be sure to keep these in a tray when I've worn the points off stripping cables and whatnot.

I also use the upright scraper method for taking the edges off of acrylic and perspex with very good results.

I particularly liked how you brought the grain up on that piece of wood!
If you were to sand it with a soft sanding block to get between the grain and bring a texture to the wood, then heavily stain it, followed by scraping it to remove the stain from the higher peaks of the grain, it would really bring it up looking good. then finally either varnish or beeswax it to seal it in.

Might try that one a small wood project in the near future. =]
