Now the EU has fixed small device charging standards. Maybe they could mandate a single battery standard for power tools... or at least make it so manufacturers have to make adaptors to other makes of battery.
It's almost the end of September. And the outside temperature at midnight is 20°C.
Finally achieved food.
Would you like a short thread on a weird internal conflict I have regarding a fairly widespread issue Hyundai/Kia E-GMP cars are having?
That question was rhetorical. Strap in.
OK, so my car can (in theory) charge at 48 amps. With our Freedom voltage, that's 11.5 kW. A fair number of owners are having problems charging at this speed because the charge inlet overheats.
Now, initially, Hyundai had a very stupid strategy for this occurrence: stop charging entirely. That was awful.
Does anyone make decent quality usb-c flash drives ?
I now have a usb-c hub with 4 ports. One of which is power input. So I can now do 3 devices plus power.
Wait. Did I have breakfast yet ?
Does the ICD train to Brussels count as high speed, or low speed? It only does 160kph. But it's running on the high speed infrastructure... #JetlagTheGame
Finding it reassuring that there is actually someone with even worse form for Burpees than me...
Getting a lot of spam from mastodon.social and mastodon.world.
Watching Americans trying to pronounce den Bosch is most entertaining. #JetlagTheGame
It's starting to look like a bench.
One joint completed. Just need to do the other leg and this whole leg assembly is finished.
Back in my "workshop". Continuing with project workbench. Want to get the legs finished by the weekend so I can epoxy the ends.
Where can I get 6mm acrylic CNC milled ? Ideally in the Netherlands. Or even 6mm thick aluminium.
I'm in this toot and I don't like it.
“I sent the maintainer a small patch that represented hours of work and he spent 3 minutes rewriting it and checked it in with himself as the author” - one of the many reasons I quit Linux kernel development. It’s an excellent technique for discouraging new developers from joining your community https://ariel-miculas.github.io/How-I-got-robbed-of-my-first-kernel-contribution/
Postnl: we will deliver your package today between 1100 and 1500
Also postnl: we haven't actually received your package ourselves yet.
Looks like while I was on holiday MS redesigned the azure ad dashboards. Argh.
Also, is it just me, or does the change of name to entra feel like when royal snail tried to rebrand as consignia ?
The rocks in this video are not hostile architecture. For they you need to get on a train to say... Schiphol. Where the benches are missing. Instead there's some instrument of torture you're supposed to lean against...
These are also found at a lot of Amsterdam tram stops... and GVB metro stations...
Hostile architecture exists in .NL. it's not as common as in other countries. But it's here.
Looks like mastodon.social have a spam problem tonight
Ooh. Spam on Mastodon. The fediverse has Landed
note to self, check space in fridge has space before ordering groceries
Grocery delivery on its way. Which means I need to dig out all the deposit bottles and cans to return.
Hmmm. Something slightly odd is going on with ticket prices through the Ruhrgebiet towards Berlin on 10th October…
Despite this being a fortnight from now, and these evening trains on that route typically being medium full, there is no Sparpreis anywhere west of Essen
So I have done a ticket split - Normalpreis Köln-Essen and Sparpreis from Essen, but it is a little odd…
Science/coastal hivemind, I need your help. We’re working on the underwater acoustics of small all-electric boats (almost certainly far less underwater noise pollution than engines). We would like to do some trials - just measuring the sound near an electric boat - but we’re struggling to find someone in (or very near) the UK who has an electric boat we could use/hire. Has anyone got any ideas or know anyone who owns an electric boat?
Well fuck. For once it wasn't DNS.
It was ntp
Incidentally, as you all enjoyed the previous geolocation games so much. Where was the photo in this toot taken from. To within 100m.
Back at work after my holiday. My inbox is not as bad as I feared. Still not great tho. Can I be back in a cafe by the med again please?
Back at work after my holiday. Took 4 goes to get my laptop password right...
Aaah. My own bed. I've missed you.
It's nice to be somewhere where turning the lights on or off doesn't involve solving an escape room challenge
My OV chipkaart expired. I renewed it, and they sent by bank transfer the remaining credit from the expired card.
So tell me. What shall I spend my €0.03 refund on...
Laundry has gone in the machine so that I can get it hung up to dry overnight. Kinda needed as I'm out of underwear. Now have about an hour to vegetate before it's ready.
Wanted to be home by 2200. Wrang doorbell at 2159. Perfect.
Of course the lift at Sloterdijk station to get up from the platform is out of order. And I arrived at the only platform without an escalator... fnnnggh. Just the metro to go
Eating cheese and crackers not altogether that long before bedtime... is that the best idea?
Eh, my dreams are plenty weird already, what could go wrong?
