    Well, out here in The Netherlands, we don’t do presents at Christmas. Instead, we have Sinterklaas (= Saint Nicholas), who leaves presents on the night of December 5th.

    Good old Saint Nicholas left me the following:

    I was all excited until I found out that the Ditto doesn’t take batteries. I need to get a power supply...

    Nevertheless, not a bad haul, this year!

    Man! That's a big step up from when lived in Germany. Maybe candy. Never a pedal. Man

    You used to live in Germany?
    Isn't German Christmas a rather gift-heavy affair?

    @Malurkey I've used a cordless drill charger cord to power my pedal for some time. Works fine. Does the Ditto take 12Vs?
    Also HNPD!

    Sinterklaas doesn’t bring coal! You may get a bunch of twigs, however. Apparently, in the old days, he wasn’t averse to a bit of physical violence against youthful offenders...

    Thanks! I think it needs 9V, not 12V.

    Worst case he carried bad children off to Spain, but I guess the legal issues surrounding that practice put an end to that...

    I never made it to Spain. Might have been fun...
