Hi! here is my introduction

I joined a couple of months ago, but hadn’t gotten to introduce myself.

I love useful things, and I’m constantly thinking about how to optimize stuff (I’m still getting slightly better at brushing my teeth).

Flashlights. My first one was about 15 years ago, a Black Diamond storm headlamp that used 4xAAAs, has big tir LED, a flood LED and a red light. I almost haven’t spend a night without it since, but the low cri always bugged me (hard to pick clothes of find stuff in a bag, hands look weird). My search began last year for an actual proper flashlight, to replace my other 3$ AA 1-mode zoomy with 30min runtime (smooth threads though). In one night, I found about the hotrod D4V2, the 95 CRI sst20, and foss Anduril UI. Contrary to my shopping habits, I bought that light right away, it just seemed like nothing would be able to beat it.

I can use a soldering iron and compile Anduril. I hope my posts can contribute without adding too much noise and I want to thank all the contributors here! BLF is amazing.

ps, my name Elendur is from the Silmarilion… I did read the book, but not much stuck to my mind… I found the name on some wiki. I really only chose it because I was so impressed with the Anduril UI that I wanted related name!

It's a pleasure to know you, elendur!

I’m an Anduril fan as well.

Thought your name was tolken-ish. Not familiar with Anduril yet, but I’m anxious to learn.
