Looong day. Up (again) at 6. Worked til 9 transferring all (I hope) SAP files to the Mac Mini via external HD. Took MBP to Apple in Edmtn for repair. Turn around time is 2-4 days. Mini is slow so SAP will take much longer to do each day.

Then went out to Morinville to pick up repaired motor home. They replaced the entire converter and load tested batteries. All good. Everything back to normal. Cost me less than half what I expected. Just $724.50. $400 parts, $300 labour plus taxes.

Morning all, today on SAP after a frustrating hour with the Mac Mini without a SSD we have geese on guard, kitties in a cherry tree and The Loch Ness monster.

All the repairs on Apple's tab I trust.
You seem to have had more than your share of Mac troubles with some of your Macs over the last few years.

That still seems a bit expemsive but I've usually only been exposed to the converters used on some of the smaller Weekender type boats, and I'm sure the technology has changed quite a bit.

No doubt it's better to just replace than repair these days, especially when it comes down to reliability. There's often a fair amount of amperage going through those switches and contacts, even with the smaller units and larger house batteries that tend to get used these days.

Do you also have or use any solar panels???

I understand there have been great strides made with improvements to the newer type panels, and the prices seem to have come down a fair bit. But probably not enough when commercial AC power is readily available.

Time to revisit some comments I made regarding LED headlights awhile back. Essentially I said these were almost universally painful to oncoming traffic.

Well ended up installing a couple of LEDs as faux potlights in a utility area, mainly was trying to avoid heat build up. Interestingly these are supposedly equivalent to 65W incandescent lighting and the same color output. Good diffusion as well. Thing is I can look right at a bare 60W incandescent bulb with no issues even though I can see the filament through the coating. Looking at one of those LEDs from 10 feet away is painful even though it is mounted flat to the ceiling and only a small amount of light is aimed at 60-70°s from the perpendicular axis.

Long story short LEDs are more painful full stop.

Hmmm...???

It sounds like either you are not using the correct bulbs, or not installing them correctly, or not having your auto headlamps aligned correctly just as I'm sure many others don't.

Except for the multiple dimmable LEDs we tried in the kitchen several years ago which were much too harsh, we have found the LED lamps we are using very beneficial. Especially those I got for our 2006 vintage cars, and no, I did not purchase the super cheap models, nor the super expensive models some local garages seem to like to charge.

You make a very broad and seemingly generalized statement that I cannot support from our experiences.

Maybe have a read at some pages such as this:
How to Choose the Best LED Light Bulb for Any Room in Your Home
https://www.earthled.com/blogs/light...m-in-your-home

PS: I didn't think one was supposed to look directly or stare at any light source.
