Just figured out what to get the BiL for his birthday.

Raspberry Pi troubleshooting kit:

✅ Small USB powered HDMI display
✅ Handheld wireless keyboard with touchpad

Enough for emergencies anyway. I have similar stuff and it's really handy.

Apparently the $20 7" LCD screen I got on eBay a while back was a fluke. I'm not even finding deals I like from aliexpress.

How far down the rabbit hole of "Building a monitor from parts I ordered from China" do I really want to go?

@chuck It wont be anything more extreme than "The case said this model number, so I looked at that kit, and it was made of these model numbers, so I ordered those components..."
