Considering upgrading my mousing surface...

from oven liner on marble tile, to BBQ grill mat on tile. 😀

So, (did the first step of) converting an old bathroom exhaust fan into a soldering station fume extractor. Added a cable, put it on a base, and put a big beefy switch on the side.

And, now that I have at least the wiring done, part of me thinks I should have used a 2-gang box and stuck a receptacle on the switch too. Plug in the soldering iron, and I'd have to turn on the exhaust to turn on the iron. Hmm... Thoughts, elephantverse?

Why, yes, I am flying with an IBM Model M2 keyboard and a handbuilt PS2-USB converter for it in my carryon. Doesn't everyone? 😉

(credit where credit due: converter running TMK firmware, with keymap modified to turn Caps Lock into "Windows" key. I just modified the keymap, compiled it, and soldered the thing together.)
