    Have you tried cleaning it?

    MBP have active cooling. The fans could be clogged.

    Also, check activity monitor for CPU / GPU usage. Might have picked up some mining malware.

    Surely if they didn't reveal this during the process, up to and including exchange, then they're liable for the costs??

    What does your solicitor say?

    Look at the back here too detailing facia overlap and construction...

    Room is 2552mm wide so will domino together the horizontal shelves to create a full length shelf at each level.

    I'm all out of vinyl storage (again). I've got a few more kallax around the house with some in too but main storage is already full. There's a pile waiting to be sorted, just out of shot.

    I've mocked up two solutions in sketchup, both have some additional shelving at the top for lego stuff.

    The main difference being that one design has a 30mm facia on the top and sides of each unit which I'll route LED strips in for lighting, the other doesn't for the records.

    Couple of questions:

    1. As you can see from the pics, I have a service hatch for our kitchen
      / bathroom fans which all vent out of the roof. Should I cover it /
      would I get away with maybe creating a non-permanent attachment for
      the bottom left 'cube' of four compartments for records, using
      battens to allow that part to slide in and out if I needed access?
    2. Which one looks nicer? I think I prefer the facia across everything though it will end up hiding a few records. The sections are tall enough to accept box sets even with the facia
    3. Would I get away with 15mm MDF? I've modelled for 18mm but shits expensive yo.
    4. I'm going to swap to bookshelf speakers. Could I wall mount them either side, at the lego shelf height?

    Souness is properly shit. Feels like a daily mail rant column every time he opens his mouth.

    Probably of limited interest but picked up a Mario series 5 character in Tesco this lunchtime. Decided to see if I could build it without opening the bag.

    Managed to build everything short of placing it on the plate.

    Nice. Did you change specs in the end?

    I have two EO Mini and they've been faultless in terms of plug and play. One is tethered and one is not, only because that one sits on the outside of the garage and I didn't want a cable there. The other one is inside the garage.

    The units are super small / unobtrusive.

    The app is a bit shit though. Not really much features or updates.

    My dad has a Wallbox and that seems good too. Better app, still small enough not to stand out.

    I'd recommend either.

    Roy seems to have forgotten how to bat. 3rd duck in a row.
