Uuuh I think my fridge/freezer has a firmware bug because in eco mode it cools the freezer down to -30°C instead of -15°C like it’s supposed to. The fridge part is spot on though.

Sigh, yet another kernel update required to mitigate Intel CPU vulnerabilities. Really wish Hetzner had better AMD offers.

Holy fuck am I getting this right? PSD2 is “open banking” only in the sense that it opens up customer data to third parties and the APIs are not actually open? I’m really fucking pissed that I can no longer use FOSS banking software right now.

Was wondering why my public timeline was so damn quiet and I wasn’t seeing half the replies to most stuff…

Like, we carry supercomputers with us that can’t do simple fucking I/O. How stupid is that.

Lamenting the fact that PCs, laptops and smartphones generally don’t have GPIO or I²C pins accessible to developers. This is so stupid.

The only phone I know of that did this is the first Jolla phone. It has I²C pins on the back side, used for the Other Half gimmick. It’s great for cute little electronics hacks.
