Checkpoint - LED Woes Edition

These LED right angle connectors all suck. The wired versions are a bit more reliable but not by much. I’m not sure if it’s the connectors themselves or the wiring that’s causing the problem; all I know is that I need to toss out the connector and replace it for my LEDs to work properly.

A search for superior replacements yielded these connectors from SuperBrightLED which sport a completely different connector. I would pull the trigger but the shipping costs gives me pause at the moment. I’ll consider it when I run out of these questionable ones.

The cheap nature of these LED strips are a double edged sword. It’s nice that parts like connectors, remotes, power supplies and the LED strips themselves are cheap but if I wanted something more like the ability to program the wireless remote frequency, I’m out of luck.

This brings me to my final point: Test out power supplies and other accessories as soon as you receive them because they could be dead on arrivals.

I’m forty hours deep into Wasteland 2 and I’ve only just reached — what I assume to be — the half way point. I’m having my fun and my fill. My only issue thus far are the little bugs and glitches that crop up. Some of them involve quest lines which lead to nowhere.

I’ve continued my career in FIFA 15 and I’ve continued my dive into the depths of DIablo III’s bounties and rifts. Enjoying both as well.

The next new releases will be Bayonetta 2 for the Wii U and Sunset Overdrive for the Xbox One. I’m hoping to wrap up Wasteland 2 before both of those arrive.
