It's worth exploring. There are some sanwa models and logitech have ones that are controlled using your thumb. Best find out first if you like a thumb-ball or finger-ball. Either way, you'll be touching balls.
I was trying to find photos of my iPod Classic when I came across another classic:

Woohoo cheapo Taotronics Bluetooth headphones arrived and they are somehow wayyyy worse than I thought! :D

Mostly just a very, very, very loud static noise in the background at all times.

It does solve all my problems though and is fine to work out in, so I don't mind keeping them if they can't be returned. However, will be actively looking to return them if possible.

They took 3 weeks to ship but thankfully Taotronics offer free returns within 60 days. Really hate returning products I have opened and used, but these are actually really annoying to put in my ears, so I can't see myself using them for anything more than workout sessions and short online meetings where I might wanna walk around the room to grab things while still connected to the audio. 😥

First set of Bluetooth headphones in my life so at least I have a baseline.

You're only as good as your scrap bin full of failed projects, that's how I look at it anyway. XD

Make sure you get leaded solder (not lead-free!) and some flux (for electronics, don't accidentally get the plumbing one).

Anyone have a lot of experience with monitor stands/arms? I dunno if I should get an eBay cheapie or spend a little more on some used 'branded' ones. Prooobably leaning towards the latter because you know...businesses closing down and stuff.

Hit me up in a week or so (depending on shipping)

I've used a cheapo monitor arm for my previous main display for many years and it got at the time. Still think it's worth it with my situation back then, though I won't ever buy one like that ever again because of overall usability and quality of life stuff. Cost about 50 USD.

You wouldn't think the small things will be important until you actually use it for a few years. In fact, only 3 of the 4 screws are threaded properly when they arrived! XD

New monitor needs an arm so I have one coming in with all the work from home going on. This one's about 70 USD. It looks pretty solid in YouTube reviews but have some negative feedback in the Amazon reviews section.


Shipping's been delayed for a very long with with the pandemic but it should arrive this week or next. Will give some first impressions but can't offer any long term questions for this one.

If you have questions about arms with the previous design, feel free to ask away.

I recommend using brass wool for tip cleaning instead of a wet sponge. It makes your soldering experience more predictable, no sudden drastic drops in temps.

I've got a wall mounted Vision Mount one from MSY and it's not too shabby. Gas lift and has two joints. I've also got a Silverstone ARM31BS. It's adjustable but it's not easy to adjust, especially the height of the monitors. The base is quite big. Go with one that attaches directly to your desk if possible. You'll save a lot of desk space, and it'll be more sturdy too.



CBS makes some hella fancy ones but they are exxy

Well I just bought ten CBS Flo brand new in box for USD560 (845 dollarydoos on eBay), I hope you're happy with yourself. ><

I "needed" two for my desk, but once I saw the bulk pack I figure I'll use 4 in the garage and maybe a friend could use a couple. The price was too good to pass up, they're like AUD200ish retail? Even used ones look to be in the AUD90 range on eBay/Gumtree.

Yoooooooooooooooooooooooo, that's a blast from the past lol. I wonder if I should blog again? So much hope, so much energy, so little depression back then.
