Struggling to think what I'd spend some vouchers on, I bought a pair of Ratchet Belts off Amazon, and they're actually pretty good.

I never knew I wanted them until I'd bought them. 

Still got £55 left and was thinking on using it on a Raspberry Pi 4 and acrylic case and running Pi-Hole on it, but not sure.

I'll give you a Rasp3+ for fuck all if you really want one, don't know if it will be fast enough for PiHole but can't see it not being.

I only ever wanted it for RetroPi but, the hassle of clipping ROMs and sifting through the mountains of webshit to pluck the correct ROM from the multitudes was more hassle than the gain.

I had one for a couple of years now.

They are much better than the traditional belts with holes to put the buckle through, more precise than and you don't have to put other holes just to fit my waist size

The belt, not the pi

Scratch that, I thought it was a false vibrating fanny.
On closer inspection, it seems to be a clitoral stimulator for women (not men with clits, obviously) whereas I thought it was a vibrating toy fanny, initially.

Where we'd say "The best thing since sliced bread.", the Japanese would probably use "The best thing since instant noodles."

They voted it the best invention of the 20th century in 2000. 😋

That's really something from a country where you can buy schoolgirls used knickers from a vending machine.

I believe the practise has ceased some time ago, but I guess it was just an unexpected outcome of dropping nuclear weapons on a country when there was perhaps no need.
Actions and unseen consequences  :shocked:
