Bill writes, “Do you have any current recommendation for good low cost lightbulbs? The ones that they recommend on sweethome.com are priced higher than I was hoping for.” Bad news, we use the same Cree bulbs they recomend, good news, Amazon has the same 4 pack of bulbs for half the price!

Like Ricky, who writes, “I don’t know if this counts as #analog, but this weekend i went to kauai for my bday; left the laptops at home in Honolulu, & flew my mavic all weekend. Also went chasing spots that only had “E” or lower for signal strength on my phone.” Awesome!
