    5g tank pic upload

    Photobucket finally cut me off. They said that they got tired of me using them to upload pictures to third party websites. So, whatever. I haven't uploaded anything in a while. It's only 5g, but it's a lot of maintenance to keep the chemistry stable, which is part of why I enjoy it so much...

    Do I need a director to Control my AI Hydra26 or can I just download and use the app? I am just using one unit. I can't get the app to link to my light. This is frustrating.

    Last nights' Presidential Debates

    I watched most of it but not all of it. I was just curious who you think sounded like the best candidate and why? Trump sounded like a hot head and the rest of the Republicans just threw insults at other candidates whenever possible,.... Last night was more like a reality show than a debate...
