WORTH-A-CHIRP / ESSENTIAL TIPS
- Nord VPN Special Offer for viewers to this YouTube channel. A very generous 77% discount on the 3 year subscription. That's 6 devices for 3 years for $99... (Equivalent to $2.75 a month, which is just 46c per device per month!) If I wasn't already signed up to Proton I would be very tempted by this. I don't know how long the deal lasts so if you are interested go snap it up here
Nemo's Hardware Store (xx:xx)
- No Hardware Store this week as Nemo is taking a break and bracing himself for a big truckload of new goodies to be delivered ready for next week.
