Planning and pizza and code.

Bought yet another qi receiver for my phone. I keep slowly upgrading as I discovered that cheap is the enemy of good. The receiver case I've got now makes a faint but noticeable (to me, anyway) noise when powered. In a quiet room, it's annoying. The new one is a battery case, the batteries are removable and qi-chargable separately, AND it has a microusb port so you can charge the normal way WITHOUT removing the case. So, major improvements. It's a bit bulkier, of course. We'll see how that goes.

Also, decided I'm likely to buy an HP Stream 7 or 8, partly to use as a Steam Streaming receiver, so I can play video games on Tarazed when it's too hot to actually be upstairs. Will have to balance that against not doing so when it's too hot for Tarazed to be awake, but it can handle quite a lot more heat than I can. Plus, y'know, nice cheap tablet. $90 for the 7. Crazy.
Anyway, will try to play with one in person tomorrow, before deciding to go thru with it or not.
