The Season Is Upon Us

👋 👋

So I’ve been kitting up for the upcoming season of Airsofting. It all started with a new gun, they had a “demo” tactical AK for sale at Wizeguy action shop in Uppsala. So I snagged that one and after that, it derailed 😂

I also got an actual magdump for my rig and some new magpouches because with the new gun I also got a 5-pack of 120 round midcap magasines and the magpouches I got with the rig was supposedly going to fit 2 AK mags each but they barely fit one.

I’m aiming for some weekend games maybe next weekend or the one after that. Before I go I’ll have to cut a new lens for the protector for the sight. the clear one was broken when it arrived and the yellow one doesn’t work for me.

As you can see in the background I’ve also bought a couple of Lego-sets. You can never be too old for Lego 😂 I wanted to buy some at christmas because I found a set with a truck pulling a trailer with a helicopter on it, but I didn’t buy it then and after that they didn’t have it in stock anymore, but lo and behold when I was in Uppsala to pick up the AK I found that exact set and I had to get it.

All the parts I ordered for S80 has also been installed except for the front springs since they delivered one spring that was correct and one that was just slightly too big. Right now it seems as they’re gonna send me a replacement on warranty. I also didn’t get any rear shocks even though I ordered them.

I was gonna post a proper picture of the S80 since I got it washed, but then I went driving on an infamous dirt road back home in Ostrobothnia aaaaaand now it’s brown instead of red. Well maybe later, I’d still need to give it a proper handwash and maybe even polish a bit.

P.S. I was thinking about getting a cheap actioncamera to strap to the gun or my helmet and record some gameplay. Sound off in the comments below if that’s something you’d like to see.

What? Again!?!

Oh hello, I’ve swapped car again. I had a friend who wanted a 2.0T Volvo and offered a Volvo S80 2.4 as a trade-in. It started as a joke… I saw he was offering the S80 in exchange for a 2.0T and I jokingly asked him how much money he wants in between, well a few hours and 500€ later I was a proud owner of an S80. The only problem is that it’s automatic, But I really don’t mind and it’s a bit comfier in city traffic with an auto and it has cruise control which is a dream come true when I’m driving home to Ostrobothnia from Turku.

Yes all my vehicles grow a mustache

The week after the trade was spent in the garage, installing my extra headlights, swapping the stock stereo etc.
I also bought a set of alloy wheels and ordered new struts with mounting hardware, springs, brake pads and rotors. New summer tyres will also be coming soon. I just hope I’ll have time to fix all this… Yikes :‘D

What else has been going on?

Oh yeah, I ordered a Raspberry Pi waaay back at the beginning of January and it finally showed up! I was gonna use it as a musicbox for my car/truck so I would have my phone free but the software has some issues with the new Spotify API so all I could play from there was the latest releases in all genres. Then I tried installing Kodi on it to stream movies and series from my PC to my TV but the raspberry doesn’t have quite enough power for 1080p video. So now I’ve just got Raspbian installed on it to see what it can do, gonna try some coding and compiling and such on it.

P.S. About the Spotify “Recent Tracks” list, if you are on mobile it’s gonna show up at the bottom of the page and not in the right column. I totally forgot about mobile browsers since I almost always view my blog on the PC. That said the blog is best viewed in a desktop browser in my opinion.
