We start the show with some talk about some cherry-infused whiskey that we made back in June and drank over Thanksgiving celebrations. We also look at 5 or 6 bourbons that you can try or give as gifts for under $50. On Thursday I put the Weber iGrill up against the Meater Wireless Smart Meat Thermometer while cooking two turkeys on Thursday and I have some thoughts about both. I also have been splitting a lot of wood lately and we talk about some of the tools that might make that process a little easier. We end the show with a quick update on the PC/VR build. More next week with Mike Wieger. Thanks for listening. Join Jim Collison / @jcollison for show #553 of Home Gadget Geeks brought to you by the Average Guy Network.

Full show notes, transcriptions (available on request), audio and video at http://theAverageGuy.tv/hgg549 I have Edward Weniger, President, Alpha Bitcoin and local to Omaha. We discuss the advantages and disadvantages of mining Bitcoin at home and on a commercial scale. We note that while commercial mining operations have higher overhead costs, they also have the potential to generate more revenue. They also discuss the energy market in the United States, noting that Texas deregulated its energy market some years ago. Prices for energy have gone up since then, but the state still offers some advantages for miners. Edward discussed the recent Ethereum hard fork and merge and expressed his opinion that the merge is a bad thing. They also talked about power consumption and how it is not profitable to mine Bitcoin at home. We finish with some discussion about a Home Gadget Geeks meetup on May during Bitcoin day in Omaha. More details to come! Thanks for listening. Join Jim Collison / @jcollison for show #549 of Home Gadget Geeks brought to you by the Average Guy Network.

Winespies not a wine club and there are no subscriptions to purchase. You simply buy what you want, when you want it. And with my favorite feature, you can build a case over time, using an industry-exclusive Locker feature. Add a single bottle - or as many as you want - to your Locker, and they will keep your wine safe and cool in their secure temperature and humidity-controlled warehouses. And they will ship it to you on your schedule...FOR FREE...when you fill up each Locker case of 12. Locker orders are also better for the environment, with an average 50% reduction in carbon output. Seems like a win/win to me! I started a Locker right after the show! You can too at Winespies.com We also cover a bunch of wine gadgets at the end of the show. Stay all the way to the end for some helpful tips and tricks Thanks for listening. Join Jim Collison / @jcollison for show #545 of Home Gadget Geeks brought to you by the Average Guy Network.
