Maybe a mild electrical shock whenever your lower jaw starts to drop open? I'm sure you could rig up something. Laugh-a-lot

Maybe buy his wife a nice cattle prod? She would probably be happy to oblige!

I did ask her to poke me if she heard me making weird noises, but she said she slept right through it... I expect I will need to pay her to stay up all night a couple nights.

I don't think I could even pay my wife to stay up all night. I have to make her really mad before she will do that...only problem is, if she gets that mad I stay up all night as well.Smile

I use FlashPAP to load data from a FlashAir III wifi sd card in my machine to my computer and display it with SleepyHead .
