Stainless Steel Fans

Stainless steel fans are an effective and environmentally responsible way to cool your home.  Looking to purchase one that is not cringe-worthy from a design perspective?  While the options are not unlimited, one of these might fit the bill:

Uline

Travers Tool Co.

Craftsman

MaxxAir

Days 2-7: #20dollarlaptop

As many #pine64 reviewers noted in late 2016, support for the #pine64 is very much a diy affair. Even late in 2017, MfL has had to assemble our own set of resources for setting up the board. The good news is that there is a lot of helpful information out there; the bad news is that it is not all in one place. The best place to start is the Pine64 wiki: http://wiki.pine64.org/index.php/Main_Page Norm24’s schematic overview of the board has been an invaluable resource.

Buying Sheets

At MfL, we are always interested in finding out how things are made and we wanted to share some of our recent findings from our research into cotton sheets. Despite the marketing hype, it is not the thread count alone that is important.  Rather, it is the thread count number and the quality of the thread.  As a result, your 1000 thread count cotton sheets may actually be of a lower quality than a 500 Egyptian cotton thread count sheets.  While we love super-fine Italian linens and recommend purchasing Frette and Pratesi sheets if they are within your budget, for those looking for high quality Egyptian cotton sheets, we recommend Andiamo Brand 500 thread count Egyptian Cotton sheets.  You can find them at many online retailers and will often find them on sale.  Here is a link to one online retailer that consistently stocks them.
