  1. 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.

    • 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).

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

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

          • 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.

            • @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.

            • @adiwan They're doing generic hiring for specific projects??

            • @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.

              • 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 :-/

                  • 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.

                    • I'm seriously considering buying a rechargeable phone battery and solder myself some leads to the contacts instead of a proper lipo battery. Or I use my old phone battery and solder leads. I know it's not ideal but it should be not so bad considering the battery will only have a low current load. Phone batteries are so much cheaper than quadcopter lipos and in my case more readily available.

                      • Finally the package arrived! I ordered three temperature/humidity sensors (DHT22), three micro controllers (Wemos D1 mini ESP8266), and one lipo battery charger board for these. Tomorrow I want to do a little accuracy test with all of them.

                        • Oh no. They f***ed-up my local public transportation system. They changed routes, will cancel lines, added lines, and everything together. Right now it's a total mishmash and I don't know which will be there. As for now there won't be any bus line that will drive on Sundays. Also they changed it so that everyone has to transfer at the train station at a central hub. Before that I had a line that drove directly into the center of the city without a transfer. Just WTF. Every time they change the plan it gets worse and worse.

                              • I'm looking for a reliable micro SD card for my Raspberry Pi 2 and I'm a bit indecisive. For every good card there are alarmingly many bad reviews saying that the card died months after the purchase. Of course I can use the guarantee terms to my advantage but I don't want to hassle with a return.
