This isn’t necessarily a permanent thing. But we will certainly be doing a helluva lot more research before we invest in anything down the line. Both for value and compatibility. I refuse to go broke over something this unnecessary. Cool, sure, but wholly unnecessary.
Until then, I suppose we’ll have to turn the lights on and off using a light switch on the wall like mere *GULP* savages!
¡VIVA LA LIGHT SWITCH!
