A lead time of five to six months is perfect for the battery which I want to add to my #solar - because there's no better time to harvest sunshine that November in the UK...
It's 2022, which by some definitions is definitely "the future" where technology is supposed to be all magic and good, so why are punchdown tools so bad?
Is this punishment from the wifi gods for installing physical #networking in my new house?
and as if by magic 😂
How many weeks do I wait for a reply to my enquiries about adding battery storage to augment my solar system before I accept a little sick in my mouth and ask for a powerwall quote?
I'd much rather any other battery, because musk, but in the long run I'd rather a distasteful battery than no battery...

@kelbot And this is why I only last year picked up the Assassin's Creed Heritage Collection for PS3. IIRC it was about £13 for the AC, AC:2, AC:Brotherhood, AC:Revelations, and AC:3
Whether or not I'm now going to go and browse ebay for PS3 games, I couldn't possibly comment ;-)
Further adventures in "naming things is hard", in setting up a "scrape council website, fiddle with data, send to MQTT" node-red flow, I had to come up with MQTT topics.
Which is how I have ended up with 'binday/whichbin' and 'binday/whenbin' 🤷🏻
Now all I need to do is code up something to make use of a raspberry pi and my 7 colour e-ink display...
Slowly starting to emerge back onto the internet after "one hell of a six months".
I can 100% condemn catching covid twice in the three months before you move house.
On the plus side, despite there still being plenty to do, I'm now at the stage of DIY where I'm running ethernet cables, and hooking up wifi relays to the garage door opener, and am loving the peace and quiet of a country village compared to my old flat in the middle of a building site in Bethnal Green.
This isn't entirely unexpected, but I probably should have known better than to back a kickstarter product which relied on a cloud service. #SmartHalo have gone bust and turned off the servers, rendering devices pretty much useless.
"Since we are not able to pay for server and maintenance costs, SmartHalo 1 and 2 devices have stopped working properly. For those who have devices, you should know that you can always use the front light and the alarm in offline mode, without the app."
@cypnk Only yesterday? It feels like it's been broken much longer than that, says the cynical SysAd ;-)
@technoid_ you absolute legend, that looks perfect, thank you 🙂
Although, on balance, it looks like I might have to get my hands dirty in some json to set up the funky things I want, but it's a small price to pay, I guess 😉
A bunch of technomancers in the fediverse. This arcology is for all who wash up upon it's digital shore.
