re: Backpacking pack size - Engineer
I use a Deuter Futura Pro 36. I got the 36 bc it meets the international carry on requirements. I mostly use it for traveling abroad. They also make a 42L. If you have modern ultralight equipment you can for sure fit everything in the 42. I did a lot of research and there’s several YouTube vids o...

re: The expensive Hue bulbs vs the SYLVANIA bulbs. UPDATE. - Engineer
Convenience, really. If you want to email a weather report, IFTTT is as simple as activating the widget. And while you can find, share, and enable another user’s flow in Stringify, building it from scratch would be a little more involved. I prefer that because I can choose when the weather...

re: The expensive Hue bulbs vs the SYLVANIA bulbs. UPDATE. - Engineer
Depends on what you’re doing. I no longer use IFTTT and just use Stringify and ST for all my devices. IFTTT is really good for simple tasks, but I found myself wanting to do if this then that and also that but only when this. Stringify is better for that, IMO....

re: The expensive Hue bulbs vs the SYLVANIA bulbs. UPDATE. - Engineer
[quote]3. Stringify - someone else will have to weigh in. I haven't used this yet.[/quote] It’s like IFTTT on steroids. You can make a flow with if, only if, and, or, while, else, etc. You can also pass functions, strings, and perform math calculations between objects. Edit: I started usi...

re: The expensive Hue bulbs vs the SYLVANIA bulbs. UPDATE. - Engineer
I use them because they will pair directly to smartthings without an additional hub. They work great, but I’ve turned down the brightness bc they run hot at 100%. Cool to the touch at 50%....

re: WWTOBD - Cold / Loss of Power - Engineer
Did you not have a sleeping bag because the camp normally has electric heat? I’ve never had a camp with power and use a pretty mediocre 20 degree bag with long johns on. We have propane heaters but usually don’t run them because everything will be full of condensation when it cools down. ...

re: All these people "investing" in bitcoin. Where are those that got rich from it? - Engineer
I asked the same question the other day and the short answer is most people are full of shite. We're talking about adults who have never purchased an equity, but claim to have invested heavily in bitcoin. I also think most people that have actually realized a gain have cashed it out/bought back in an...

re: Whats your thoughts on packing cubes? - Engineer
Business trip? Probably wouldn’t bother bringing slacks and collared shirts for 8 days in England unless I was meeting the Queen. I can see them being useful if sharing a bag for multiple people. I say gimmicky bc I read quite a bit of travel blogs and the ones that really push them are the fa...
