    thinking about getting a projector. I've got a small room that is used for visitors/relatives and mostly turbo training. I want to set up a projector (as pictured) and have it project onto the far wall.

    (big L shape is the couch which converts to a bed)

    I've got cat6 running into the room so can network a projector. I'd like to be able to cast from my pc to the projector/access netflix etc and have some wireless speakers that can be moved/removed at any time.

    Basically I want to be able to use the projector for movies etc but without having a permanent tv in the space where my bike usually sits on the turbo.

    Is a bluetooth soundbar my best bet for audio?

    The ikea thing might work nicely, thanks!

    the first part of my hallway is a few meters long and narrow with no lights. Not much space for a lamp and don't want to install a wall switch cause of the mess it'll make of the wall. The electricity box is very close to the front door though, so wiring a light up shouldn't be a hassle.

    I want a light to sit above my door (on the inside) which will turn on when i'm coming home or leaving the flat (basically the only times i'm in that part of the hallway).

    Can anyone reccommend a nice motion activated light?

    . Above 40 water was horrible to drink after half an hour as it was above body temp, and a real effort to plod on, having to back off effort, etc. I didn't do tcr last year or the year before but, with lucifer, etc, both were much hotter. This year has just been normal seasonal temps. Summer in Bulgaria is always going to be hot!

    can confirm northern italy during lucifer was like this. Absolutely brutal.

    buying a flat soon. Will have PC in box room/cupboard. Doing new flooring so have opportunity to run some cables.

    At a minimum I want an ethernet cable in the box room. Maybe also an ethernet cable attached to the plug socket near the TV?

    Anyone done anything like this before and have advice>?

    took this photo of my wife and didn't feel right about sharing on social with people i know so i thought i'd share it with a bunch of strangers instead

    bonus points if you correctly guess what part of the body it is

    i noticed that - annoying as it makes it harder to judge stops properly.
