  3. The German Telekom mistakingly sent me a new contract (or a confirmation thereof) for my grandparents via email. Once I gave them my email when I had to setup their Internet when their router lost all the connection data (and my grandparents didn't find any papers with the setup data). Luckily I read over the bill and discovered that they sold them an entertainment packet which they won't use because they have pay tv. About 20€ a month for something they won't use is ridiculous.

  4. @scribus It reminds me of Homer's short-lived other name Max Power.

  5. I'm over the fence. I bought it. 35€ is too good not to take. I'll flash it with LineageOS (formerly CyanogenMod) and I'll use it as a display for my temperature sensing network (displayed in the browser) and I'll take it to my D&D sessions. A dumb 5'' HDMI display (with a lower resolution!) costs as much as this tablet.

  6. I'm on the fence on buying a 7'' android tablet...

  7. Today I sew a D&D patch for my D&D bag. Tomorrow I do another because the one I did today is annoyingly misaligned. I rather do it again than to fix the existing one. The felt wouldn't withstand more meddling with its structural integrity. http://rainbowdash.net/attachment/860068

  8. LEGO Batman was good. The last quarter of the film tends towards "meh" territory but the rest was funny enough to look past that.

  10. @scribus I read about the Netflix anime Castlevania series about half a year ago. I watched today a review about that and it seems to be good. Too bad I don't like the anime aesthetic.

  11. With that... I copy over the micro SD card with the original image. It's faster than to revert everything back by hand. Too bad that I cannot really use my favorite desktop environment on that.

  12. Such a bummer. KDE5 doesn't really work that well on that Raspberry Pi.

  13. Maybe I should install a little heat-sink on my Raspberry Pi 2. It gets a little bit warm. Not alarmingly warm or whatsoever but it's noticeably warm in its case.

  14. @scribus This is how it looks http://i.imgur.com/nCJONmh.jpg It's a huge dust magnet and catcher but I don't mind that.

  15. Aw yeah! My "LEGO" Raspberry Pi case arrived. It's a normal RPi case but with LEGO-compatible nobs on top and the bottom part is compatible too. I want to buy a super cheap TFT monitor and stick it to the back. I want to exploit the LEGO part by attaching a LEGO brick/plate to the back, and then the RPi to the brick/plate. I can get a super-cheapo TFT monitor for around 10-15€ (with at least a DVI port).

  16. Great! My smartphone is officially too old. Google disabled the Market app, more specifically the server that made that run.

  17. The crushing feeling of defeat when a job you applied for and really wanted is already gone when you sent in the application.

  18. Spontaneous and goal-interfering amnesia: I have two micro USB power adapters and I want to use one of them to power my Raspberry Pi, however I cannot find any of them.

  19. @scribus It's a generic "job position" for someone who knows programming with 3D, VR, or AR. I think I can all of that. I did some VR stuff recently. 3D too. AR I did a bit a long time ago. I have no friggin' clue what they want or what they don't want. I asked the exact reason why I didn't get the job but never got an answer on that. Only that another person was more suitable for this "position". mango them.

  20. @scribus It was one of my ideas during my salty rage. Writing these would be a waste of time. I wrote a mail and got the answer that the listing wasn't directly related to one project. On the other hand they also answered they don't need my set of skills for the project they had in mind. Pure insanity in my opinion.

  21. I'm a bit salty that the job is still open for applicants that I applied for. They said they found another person for that job.

  22. Double whammy. Two denied job applications.

  23. It's SGDQ time again! The game list looks very good. There are a lot of speedruns I want to watch. Sadly there isn't a planned TASbot slot.

  24. @adiwan Suddenly my mouse is alive as it has ever been. As if it knew I was looking for a new one.

  25. Crap. My old and trusty wireless laptop mouse started to behave very strangely. Despite putting in new batteries it takes a long time for it to wake up resulting in a second of wiggling the mouse in order to make it usable. And then after a few seconds of inactivity the whole spiel starts again. The mouse is about 10 years old. Time to get a new one :-/

  27. @scribus It can get a tad more classic than that: the ball from "Tennis for Two" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tennis_for_two

  28. Hahaha... Not again. I got a nice hardcover comic BUT it has very annoying printing blotches and a torn page. Amazon is so down in my opinion.

  30. For over two weeks I didn't notice that my wifi temperature sensor sent an open hotspot. I had to explicitly set the module's mode to WIFI_STA. Apparently it's automatically in WIFI_AP_STA mode. There was no connection passthrough but it was concerning.
