Single Channel Remote control

While I was at one of our normal supplier's store, I came across this remote control. Its a single channel remote system with momentary on action. But it also responds to how long you press the button. For example, if you keep pressing it, the relay would be activated until you lift your fingers.

Unfortunately, after having so much fun with it, I realised that with only a single channel, I am only having half the fun. Maybe I should as them for more than one channel for my other projects..............

For that price, I get three transmitters and one receiver.
But when I looked closer at the board, it can house two
relays which means, there is a two-channel version out
there. OI can test it with another relay but with only
one button on the transmitter, it won't do much

Malta Quench

I was feeling for a bit of malt the other day. And so, I got a six-pack. Instead of the usual Guiness Malta or its equivalent, I bought the Malta Quench.

And how does it taste?

Imagine drinking:
1) Vanilla Coke LITE
2) Very diluted A&W Root Beer
3) Very diluted Sarsi

Yucks! I'd stay away from this Malta Quench and go back to the full rich Guiness Malta (without alcohol, of course!)

Lots of froth, very little body

WTF! This is so expensive!
Luckily I bought a 6-pack
which costs a ringgit less
