Seriously, Daikin, this is convoluted. Why not simply stop the compressor a bit when too cold and start again when back. How hard is that. This basically breaks the air-con!!!

A wire brush and IPA makes that look pretty good, for a board done with no solder paste / mask.

CW: police strip search of child

Teenage girl traumatised after police strip-search, says mum.

"Olivia was actually on her period at the time too. And they cut off her underwear in front of these grown male officers."

Just horrific.

Pondering TNG S7E9. They realise warp speed breaks shit. OK, so instead of going A to B, go 0.00001 degrees off and stop mid way and then go to B. Why the warp 5 limit? Just randomise trips a tad and all sorted :-)
That or they just need electric (EV) starships to fix it.

Well the order has gone in anyway, initially the did not like PCB under 4mm long joining two larger parts. So my environmental monitor board needed some tweaks. You also have to pick the right carrier to avoid import duty issues, but it seems possible to do so. We’ll see what the quality is like.

I am trying JLCPCB. I hear good things. PCB Train (in UK) are good, and can do one day on simple boards, but they cost a lot by comparison. Does anyone know if JLCPCB handle VAT cleanly to avoid admin fees from couriers? I supplied a VAT number as requested.

Apart from "why everyone is humanoid in the galaxy", Star Trek (TNG) solves "getting old" when they make a young Picard/Roe/Guinan, and "duplicating people" with Riker in a transport accident. These are HUGE issues for any society - yet they brush them aside so easily.

Migraine - arg, but at least I know one of the causes - low blood sugar. I can even make the visual effect "back off" if I am quick enough to address that. Happens at maybe a bit under 4 mmol/L but by no means always, well before I really "feel hypo". Sadly not the only trigger, but one to watch for.

On recent dog walk, got chatting to a lady I'd met a few times:
Her: Are you holidaying abroad this year
Me: I can't because of Covid & immunosuppressed family members
Her: But Covid is over now
Me: 1 in 45 people are infected & 1,000 ppl a week dying
Her: Not now though

At least the 3D case is a perfect fit :-)

Just watching TNG and got to this classic.
There are FOUR lights!

That Nadine Dorries interview was odd, but ignoring that she got it wrong, I also notices the way she dismissed ~50% of the responses as being organised (38 degrees). Err, so, that does not make them invalid. But even if it did, that just changes the 96% against to 92% against.

OK, walking home I got slightly wet, no biggie.
But I end up with that bloody song running around in my head.
I mean, was the lie when you were 17 that “you studied meteorology”? Because that is not how any of these things work.

Arrrg. My 3D model for the display is a simple block to show size, etc. It is not clear which way up it is, and I don't normally care as I can "drive" the display any way around. But it has a way up, in that one side has a big gap. When I added the 3 buttons to be a user interface and work with the display I did not realise I had them the wrong side. Swapping the sensor and buttons on the right here is all it needs. All the way up to actually assembling one, and it looked so right/cool. Oh well.
