My power company sucks balls. Because you know, Facebook and Google totally verify who I am... it’s not exactly difficult to create a spoof account.

This also limits my wife and I logging into the same power account possibly? I haven’t tried, I refuse to use a social login.

Also included another review here along similar lines.

Oh, and we have a smart meter and they still send around a meter reader every month. Wtf.

libinput was kicking my ass, but now my touchpad works with natural scrolling and tap to click yay 🥂

Turns out it's freaking easy to configure: add a .conf file for the touchpad at /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d with the few options needed.

Forklift LPG regulator freezing up, it turns out due to the coolant lines (which heat it and prevent it freezing up) not flowing. Traced to this, very glad to find it after ripping a bunch of stuff apart trying to trace the fault.

mmm.... I did a thing.

Trying out :ubuntu: because well, why not. I've never used it before, and it seems to work just fine.

Now, to see what I'll use for ...

WTF. I'm telling you to use ignition advance and not the PWM output you POS software! 😠

Might try and older version. 😞

oh nice, DietPi includes doing a backup in the updater now. Excellent.

I guess that'll teach me for living in the future...

I believe it's called "being indecisive".

It’s working! IT’S WORKING!!!

The most useful USB I have.
gparted here I come!

Wow. So they email to the registered account anyway to verify.
So... this is just a data grab. 🤬

Wife just sent me this...
This is our power company. What the actual fuck!

Chilly this morning.

Yes I live under a mountain ⛰

Well I guess that's ok then, and I expect that the lack of that entry was why I couldn't play Spotify on my reviever via Spotify Connect.

Completely powered off receiver, restarted and now it works fine. Hmm. Am concerned about the notices I see where Spotify is removing support from some devices.
