Wow... I can't believe you guys found both of the things I was looking for. I consider myself a fifth level black belt of finding stuff online, but I've been humbled.
Cassius found the splitter thing here: http://www.moons-power.com/
Mine was black, but those other colors are awesome! I love the black/red one.
To buy the black one in the US, go here: Splitter
It's twice what I paid in Japan, but a great deal anyway. I love that thing.
Again... thanks a ton for finding these things for me!
P.S. Just to make this post worth reading for those who don't care about these things - my best story EVER (in my opinion) will be posted by the end of the month. Better than the pool, tunnels, or any other popular ones. I can't post it until the end of the month though... you'll see why.
A few minutes ago I had a great idea. I'll set up a super backup system. I'll put a 16gb SD card into my laptop, and then have it automatically back up my projects and photos in the background. Then I'll also set it to backup certain things to the internet, and even more to my external hard drive.
A week ago I had another good idea. Apparently the bugs have been ironed out and MacOS can now be installed on my laptop. Perfect. I love Mac OS and I don't have any particular affinity for Windows.
A couple months ago I was in my RV and had a big thought. The square footage is so small in here that I could install marble floors for next to nothing. How fun would that be to have a tiny RV with marble floors? And while I'm at it, I should put some LED lighting in. It's way more efficient than incandescent lighting.
I was recently interviewed by an expat portal regarding my experience in Argentina. Below is the interview.
Who are you?
My name is Damon. I’m 33 and was born in the United States in the San Francisco bay area in a city called Santa Rosa. For the last 10 years I have lived in San Francisco which continues to be my favorite city in the world.
