    You can go bigger 2000 VA but then it gets expensive 4 batteries instead of the 2. like the 1200 VA.

    Yeah if you create a failover switch then it should work then you only need to flip a switch.

    Decided to do some cable management this evening not that anyone can see any of the cables since it's covered by a varnished piece of wood. That also stops the water from landing on any of the plugs.

    Been trying to get proper pictures of him for weeks now. Imagine a 6-year-old on crack and 6 cans of Redbull he just refuses to sit still enough for a single good picture even when my phone is set to moving pictures...

    Nice!! He looks to have grown since you have had him too or maybe it's just the video.
