My question is this: what's the best way...

    Inexpensive T-Tower and Motion Activated LEDs (with RaspberryPints bonus!)

    So the old 2 tap straight round tower had served me well for years, but when I realized I could cram 3 cornys into my kegerator (A Haier HBF05EBSS), it was obvious I needed 3 taps. There's three ways to do this: 1. Drill a hole in the existing tower and add a third shank. Cheapest option and...
