No, me neither. But I stumbled across the answer in my browsing. It means ‘elite’ and stems from the code used principally by hackers, 31337, later shortened to 1337, LEET.
One more useless fact bought to your screen by too much coffee.
Small is back with us this week.
The world returns to normal.
This week’s CTWW is about batteries.
The reusable type.
If you have already made the switch to rechargeable batteries, please find one single-use item in your home and replace it with a reusable version.
If you’ve banned single-use items from your life, please share one of your favorite “upgrades” to reusable.
I have had a bad experience with battery rechargers. I gave up on them as I had six go ‘fut’ within a short space of time and at around R$35 a time, that’s expensive.
I actually use very few batteries. I have my TV remote that I rarely use (I turn my TV off at the set), which leaves the batteries enough power to run my wall clock for a couple of months. So I get double use from my normal batteries.
I changed my camera from an external rechargeable battery type, to an internal rechargeable battery, that has never failed me.
That’s it! No other batteries in the house.
Sharing one of my favourite upgrades to “reusable”; here’s one that will surprise you:
Yes, I upgrade, repurpose and recycle my pizza boxes.
When Clorinha was a kitten, she’s a big pussy now. I used my pizza box base with sand as a litter box.
When it’s full, put on the lid for easy stinkless disposal.
My litter boxes went on the compost heap, and turned over the compost on top. Two months later… POOF! All gone.
Now that she’s a big pussy, my pizza boxes go out for the recycle collection.
That’s all for this week.
