Decided it was time to utilise the last of a good thing. In Sept of 2016, The Daily Juice company stopped making Sunnyboys, ice-blocks in Orange, Razz & Glug flavours, concentrating on the Zooper Dooper range instead.
I bought several boxes of the things (36 to a box over the next 18 months from a number of different grocery clearance outlets. There are only 5 units remaining, 2 Razz, 2 Orange & 1 Glug; they went into the freezer last night.
They’ll be gone in under a week.
Since that online tumble dryer purchasing fiasco, I’ve found another trader, one who recently closed 22 showrooms to concentrate on their online business. They have the same item, a few Oz Micro Pesos cheaper, in stock with guaranteed free next day delivery & removal of the old device. Once my refund is processed, I’ll buy from this new mob.
The collection of dongles required to convert Thunderbolt 3 to Firewire 400 is not recognised on the MacBook Pro although it is seen on a 4k iMac of the same vintage.
It’s possible the multi-port (with PD power delivery port) hub being used for the external display & the display’s own 2-port USB hub is drawing too much power for the MBP to supply.
Going to mess around with various webcams, USB-C docks, Thunderbolt 2 & 3 dongles and see if I can connect the 2004 Apple 20-in Cinema Display to my 2017 MacBook Pro. I have proved the DisplayLink USB - to - DVI works, the trick is to get the USB & FireWire 400 ports on the back of the display working.
Inspiration came to me today amidst WhatsApp & email convos between Mac User Group committee members. We’re in the process of shifting from physical meetings to Zoom online. The main monthly meeting is organised into SIGs aka Special Interest Groups (I co-ordinate two of them). I felt it would be more appropriate to call the Zoom equivalent “eSIGs.” Committee seems happy with that.

Thought (initially) that I’d had a win when I spotted some purple packaged items filling the section of a supermarket where the toilet tissue is normally located. My first impression was a load of Quilton paper was out on the shelves.
Alas, it wasn’t to be! Easter approaches & Cadbury Easter eggs & chocolate bunnies have very similar purple colouration to the desired product.
I haven’t thrown out my collection of add socks yet.
