    Dreaming of the next Eurobricks event

    I'm also strongly hoping something will be possible next year, though obviously it depends on a lot of things. Voted for Billund, but not really a very strong preference, I'd gladly go to Günzburg if that for instance means more people can make it. Not confident the English will have their divorce from the EU sorted well enough for Windsor to be a good option. Also a bit worried that "everything" will get crammed into September-October-November next year, making it more difficult to decide which events to attend, but that's a problem for later.
  2. According to @Vaionaut (he'll have to correct me if I got this wrong) it's possible to cancel, at least our house, until 30 days before arrival for a small fee, 34 EUR for the 6 person house. Would expect it to be similar for the other house too.
  3. I'd love to join your house, but this year I'm two people since my daughter is coming. So that doesn't quite solve your problem due to raising the total to 7 so you'll need a bigger boathouse.
  4. Really hope you can make it!
  5. Just admit it, you enjoy the pain and humiliation. What, are you trying to turn this into some kind of witch hunt?
  6. Quick question, it's business as usual with arrival on Saturday and then leaving Wednesday morning, right? So no official activities planned on those days?

    Event countdown 2019

    Apologies for (potentially) derailing the thread, but having been greatly annoyed by this problem I couldn't help it since the EV3 boot time really is the worst. That quote was new to me, but sounds very fitting, it's like they never bothered to just google "reduce embedded Linux boot time" and tried the most basic steps suggested.
  8. Those dates are complete no-go for me, with Easter happening the week after (yes, in Norway Easter is a week-long thing). Oh well, I'll see you in Billund next year then. Or in Skærbæk before that.
  9. I guess the title says enough, but anyway; I've been looking into powering an EV3 brick from external power supply and have bought one that was supposed to be 9V. Unsurprisingly when measuring the output with my multimeter I got a different voltage at 9.48V (that's what you get for buying cheap from China..). Obviously I don't want to fry my EV3 brick which is why I turn to you excellent people. Is 9.48V too much or not? And what is the safe range of voltages the EV3 can take anyway?
  10. Thank you! That is very useful to know, my knowledge about these things are, as I'm sure you understand, rather limited, so learning more is always good! Guess I'll have to at least check the power supply I bought closely, I wouldn't be surprised if the image on AliExpress doesn't match the one I got.
  11. Thanks for the feedback everyone, it's been very helpful. I knew some variation was to be expected, just not sure how much, so it's a relief to learn that 0.48V is normal and not something to worry about. I'll post a link later to the power supply I got, on my phone now so getting a link is a bit too much work. EDIT: this is the one I bought, but obviously there are dozens more like it available: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/9V5A-45W-AC-DC-Adapter-Charger-9V-5A-POS-machine-credit-card-machine-Switch-Power-Supply/32838762644.html

    EB Xmas Raffle 2018 - Your Santa MOC entry thread

    This year it had fallen on Anna to play Santa, but in her hurry she couldn't find her santa hat, just a tiny Christmas tree before getting on her skis and speeding away to Elsa's Christmas party.

    Billund 2018 trading post

    EDIT: the situation has been resolved. A very last minute request since I just discovered a BL seller has sent me too few, any chance someone can spare one of these in Trans-Red (as coloured): https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=87606#T=S&C=17&O={"color":17,"cond":"N","reg":"6","rpp":"100","iconly":0}

    Billund 2018 trading post

    While on the subject of long shots.. Any chance someone might be able to help me out with some of these? https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=41769#T=S&C=2&O={"color":2,"minqty":"5","rpp":"100","iconly":0} https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=41770#T=S&C=2&O={"color":2,"minqty":"5","rpp":"100","iconly":0} 41769 and 41770 Wedge, plate 4 x 2 Left/Right in Tan. I need up to 48 of each, but anything helps really. For some reason the Right version is much more expensive than the Left one on BL.
  16. But there's still so much time left, you'll both have time to build something! (I've barely started on mine)

    Actually he deserves infinite points for having the patience to deal with all our nonsense in the countdown threads year after year after year.

    And disregarding colour it appears in 4 sets in 2018 (so far).

    Event countdown 2018

    It's nice to see that this year's countdown is less of a steamroller affair, three different people have scored the three points so far. And a bit of a stretch (or a yank perhaps, since it's a chain), but the first year that part was released it was included in 8 different sets in Dark Gray (seems I missed a set where it was included in Black, making my answer worse ) with normal distribution (10 sets in total, but one's a duplicate of another, and one is a Dacta set so not something most of us would see in a store).

    Billund 2018 trading post

    I should definitely be able to get you that torso, and I think I have at least 4 of those trans-clear slopes that are not too yellowed, have to check those this weekend and get back to you.
  22. Looking at Google Maps Propellen seems to be a little bit closer to the village, but not by much. Propellen is definitely closer to Legoland, but since it's Billund we're talking at most a few minutes walking extra anyway.
  23. I'm looking for roomies too, though I'd prefer a room at the motel to be honest, not a huge fan of the wild west chalets. On the other hand, are the ninja chalets less crappy?
