Not sure this is really fun, but I‘ve seen a new Raspberry Pi 4B-8GB offered as a „spare part“ for not less than 198 USD.

Quite sure why they couldn‘t authorize the payment … they didn‘t find the ‚any key‘.

They use the same bank as Anna Delvey. Never manage to correctly send a wire.

With the exception of the 3 openSource VoiceAssistants (it‘s a matter of time), all components of my Smart Home installation now work completely autonomously and cloudless - from the radiator controls and smoke detectors to light and room climate monitoring, access control w/face recognition and the local weather, everything is on my own server.

I just walked past this guy - trimming a hedge with a chainsaw.

 

So the saying is true, if you have a chainsaw, everything looks like a tree.

Eleven minutes between telling a vendor (via email) that I'd received a faulty item and getting a replacement in motion.

Looks like he's already dropped the chainsaw on his left boot toe cap. Pretty impressive mauling..





My thoughts are no longer my own and is probably representative of our media-controlled government

Even more impressive is that he appears to have cut his own body off at the waist, there's just a hi vis jacket, a large gap, and then boots.

Speaking of chainsaws, I was surprised to see a recall notice in the paper this morning for the Bosch Nanoblade range because they don't have the mandatory chainbrake. It seems to be too early for this news to be on the recalls.govt site and too late for April 1. Some may remember AVE using a Nanoblade tool to do his manic unboxing of test products for awhile.

For the squeamish the very first chain saw was a similar size invented for surgical bone cutting.

The replacement has arrived! And it has the same fault, but that's for the Other Thread.

It’s been a big week. Mrs Handle has finished her first year of her masters and is killing it. Yesterday our house purchase went through as well.
