I'm in for an Apple Gift Card. Also picked up a new Aeron chair but thats largely covered by my employer. The day is still young.

Looks like I can apply the Apple Gift Card to my Apple One subscription.

Herman Miller is running a 25% off sale for a few more days. I found that [hivemodern.com] came out ahead since they neither charged shipping nor tax while matching the 25% off.

Cat litter. Every BF, we buy a year’s worth of cat litter. It’s usually half price. This year, it’s only 25% off. Good but not great. We go through a lot with 4 cats.

My purchased copy of the Adobe Creative Suite stopped running (new OS), and I am unwilling to pay for a subscription. I've been waiting for Affinity software to go on sale. Black Friday did not disappoint (40% off). Purchased the entire suite of Designer, Photo, and Publisher.

My library gives me access to online LinkedIn courses. Will be spending some time learning how to use the new software.

Good call! I just grabbed the covered version of the Breeze litterbox. Last one I bought was $20 a few years ago but the price is up to $60. Its now $30. Good enough.

I had been eyeing up a Loupedeck+ for Photoshop and Lightroom editing and the $50 off BF deal was too good to pass up. The deal was available on the Loupedeck site and on AMZ so i went with AMZ to get the additional 5% back on my Prime card.

Okay...it's tough to #optoutside today with a 29° temp and my ski area not opening until tomorrow.

So I did buy a new IR thermometer and a new instant read thermometer on Amazon just now.

The old IR unit is several years old and the screen readout is missing a row. So determining the difference between 168 and 186 became a crapshoot. The previous "instant read" thermometer took more like 30 seconds to stabilize.

Shopping for the best of the cheap replacements took some time.

I grabbed the Affinity Suite (sweet) deal. As a V1 owner, the upgrade was $75 with a bunch of freebies. I got an Apple Watch for my sweetie, too.

I've been leaning towards that myself.

I have a T3 mini and would like a box for an m.2 that does it justice.

Approaching 10Gbps is the best I've done.

I feel the need...!

This Sabrent case is pretty nice, and the only way you might have trouble installing a drive is if you lost your opposable thumbs.

Thanks for the push. Just did the upgrade.

And here I was trying not to spend anything.

Too many purchases to list, but they were all things that were already in my Amazon cart and had been there for awhile, things I commonly buy routinely, so I just looked for whatever was on sale...

If you go to your App Store app in your iPhone, tap your profile pic in the upper right, then hit redeem gift card and enter the Gift Card code. Now the Gift card amount is attached to your Apple ID. You can use it for your Apple subscriptions or on the Apple online store. If you go to your Wallet app on your iPhone, you can hit the + and add your Apple Account there to use in an Apple Store with tap to pay.

The best part of this was that I didn't need to change anything, merely verified the credit was being applied as I wanted.

I swore off Olight products for a couple of reasons - proprietary batteries and magnetic charging.

For the GenPop, it's not induction charging, but similar to OG MagSafe charging and I guess MagSafe 2.

It looks like I may have to make one last Olight purchase.

Must resist...

Or maybe not. The bottom of the holster has a center pin and a circular magnet.

Definitely not inductive charging.

The magnetic charging cables have the same spring-loaded pin.

The center pin is V- and the ring is V+, because that's the way their battery is built.

Cover the pin with tape and there's no charging.

Some Olights use a proprietary battery, I don't know if the Seeker 4 Pro does.

The magnet is there to align the contacts, and with once optional wall brackets, a light could be suspended from the magnet while charging.

The few times I've checked for an additional bracket they've been out of stock or sold out.

There are also at least two different size magnetic charging cables and they're not interchangeable with some different models of lights.
