My wife made his spag bol recipe. Damn it was worth it. Spag bol is a pretty hard dish to kill, but this was next level.

Gonna do his 5hr slow roasted lamb this weekend... maybe.
Anyway, they're entertaining little cooking vids.

In case anyone hasn't seen this guy yet, here's some self-isolation cooking lessons. Funny AF.

So far down here in Australia we haven't been told "officially" to wear masks. Still quite a few people are wearing them, but that doesn't stop some from doing silly stuff like ignoring social distancing.

Our toll is still low, but a 2nd wave is hitting Victoria. Some state borders still closed too.

Looking forward to getting back to the pub, but at least our band can rehearse again. Sick of working from home too.

Wish I checked it properly before asking the question!

My fault finding regime now has, "poke and prod at my bad wiring & soldering" at Step 1.

Problem solved. Just a dodgy solder on the footswitch.
Itís always something simple!
Thanks for the help Jimilee.

Ah right, it could be one of those "super bright" LEDs from Tayda. I'll check it out.
It's absolutely pissing down here in Sydney (a nice break from the drought), so it's a good day to stay in and get productive.
Thanks heaps for the replies.

Cheers, I'll go through my parts bin and see what I can find, and have a play with my audioprobe.
Faultfinding is always fun. Off topic, I had an amp making weird noises occasionally when the reverb and chorus were engaged. It took a while before I realised the culprit was a dodgy power supply from some christmas lights on the same house circuit!
Anyway, I'll report back once I solve this. Still trying to post pics. I'm a bit slow on that front.

Thanks Jimilee,
I built it 3 years ago when I was just getting into this hobby. Happy to pull it apart and try to fault find it as itís a cool little delay.
I just tried it then, even when the supply is plugged in and switched off it makes a hum when turned on - when in bypass itís noise free.
Not totally discounting the power supply, but I think I should focus on my wiring first.
I think a plan is to pull it out of the enclosure and check for any shorts, but Iíll check out the project PDF if thereís volts shown there.
Mightíve answered my own question, but Iím all ears to any advice!
Cheers
Pete
Ps pics arenít working for me atm. Gimme a bit.

Hi everyone,
So I built this Madbean Cave Dweller back in 2016 and it had a fair bit of noise when I used a power supply. I ended up making Chromosphere's Power Pellet to reduce this, which it did nicely. I also made a quick 9V battery jack plug which worked too. No noise.
FFWD to yesterday. My wife gave me a Joyo JP05 rechargable power supply. Plug in the Cave Dweller and it gives out some mad power supply hissing when engaged. If I plug in another diy effect, Dead Astronaut's Tremshifter, no noise, so I'm sure I can scratch the supply as being the culprit.

Apart from hooking up the power pellet again, is there anything I should look at in the cavedweller circuit to reduce noise?
Thanks in advance!

Nice vid. Done a few Hydro-dipping projects with the kids before.
Fun, with some very cool results.

Our new car doesn't come with a cd player, just radio, DAB, bluetooth and a USB drive.
Currently trying to choose the best stuff from my 350gb mp3 collection to fit onto a 64GB USB stick.

Something to keep plugged in when you couldn't be arsed linking your phone for spotify, etc.
Up to the H artists now...

Took my son and nephew to the skatepark this morning.
Later a couple of teens turned up with skateboards and a speaker, and cranked it. I was expecting crap, but they put on this mix that had me tapping the Shazam app on my phone. We're talking sunday disco tunes.
Classy

Lucky me is on the roll for Jury Duty for the next year.
Curious, but won't want a long case, as I tune off... I'll mention that if I get asked.

I am truly sorry for your loss and the whole terrible incident, Brian. Losing a pet to an accident hurts bad.
