I needed a new laptop fan because my old fan died and my laptop started overheating and shutting itself down. So I decided to go for HP's 720235-001 fan......

How usable is that in bright conditions? It's one of the reasons that kept me from getting a touchscreen one earlier this year.

Got one of these for when I move my computer kit upstairs, it will be the base of my gigabit network up there while a pair of homeplugs connects to the router down here.

New dash cam: MiVMue 508


Compared to my F500LHD, the new camera has better image quality(especially in poor light conditions) and bigger FOV. So far I'm impressed. If someone is interested I can upload later on YT some footage from both cameras for comparison.

Some local online retailers started Black Friday in august:lol:. Around here the concept of "Black Friday" is really misunderstood.
