A while back, I bought a couple of very small TVs, and I was going to put them somewhere permanentish… and now, after procrastinating for just two months, I’m gonna actually do it.
It wasn’t all procrastinating — the TVs are powered via USB-C, so I wanted a USB-A to dual USB-C cable, and er not all stores have that, funnily enough. But here’s one, and I had to wait for it to arrive.
I wanted to put the TVs on a shelf in the hall, because there’s conveniently a cupboard with some computerey equipment right next to it… and there’s already one hole in that wall (for loudspeakers), so making another one is fine, right?
A USB-A plug is kinda big, though… that’s the biggest drill I have. Hm!
Well, I do have one that’s bigger and doubles as a magic stick, but it’s for concrete and stuff and not for drywall and wood, which is what this wall is, so that’s out.
Holey wall, Batman!
But then I cleverly detected that a USB-C plug is smaller than a USB-A plug, and I shoved them in from the other side. Genius!
See? Makes total sense!
Result! Now I can watch Jeanne Dielman, 23, quai du commerce, 1080 Bruxelles any time I want to.
