With the summer weather approaching 90°, I decided I do not want to mow my yard anymore. Fortunately, a wide variety of robotic lawnmowers are available, and after some research I landed on the Husqvarna Automower 315x. I immediately set about making a bunch of YouTube videos, and eventually discovered the developer portal. This of course necessitated a new dedicated web application which now tracks my robotic mower as it meanders aimlessly across my yard saving me from heat stroke.

I am closing my eBay account of 23 years today thanks their absurd seller policies that allowed the following individual to completely rip me off.
I'm posting this here as a warning to stay away from this idiot, or in case someone else searches for him and needs additional evidence against him.

With the recent explosion of Ethereum cryptocurrency, I've upped my GPU game to a 2080 and 3 1060s for a total of 104 MH/s @ 500 watts. That currently nets me $700/month, which is nuts. I can't get any more GPUs since I refuse to pay 200% over MSRP for one, so I decided to add the proof-of-space crypto Chia. I have plenty of old hard drives to fill up with plotting, so my recently converted to integrated graphics primary PC has been assigned to the cause. While not nearly as profitable, it's enjoyable to see all drives hit 100% utilization while plotting as fast as I can.

After retiring my previous mining rig 3 years ago, ETH values have again risen to the point where mining is at least entertaining if not exactly profitable again. With a spare 1060 6GB video card not doing much else, I decided to join in on the fad again. This time a quick Google search yielded the perfect settings for maximum hashrate. Since my system is stable I'm not even bothering with a dedicated machine, it will just slowly mine away and just like last time I refuse to invest in any more hardware.

With my ISP upping my monthly fee another $5/month, I decided it was time to see if I could survive without them for a month. After cancelling service for a month, I get discounted "promotional" rates saving $25 / month. I'm happy to say the experiment worked perfectly with my router picking right up after I swapped connection to my phone hotspot. It even updated the DDNS IP address for this webserver. Android 11 recently added the Ethernet sharing which makes this possible, so after a few more trial runs I'm ready to destroy my "unlimited" data plan for a month and get back into the promotional pricing party.

With my beautiful GLAS thermostat having now served me well for over 2 years, it was disappointing (but understandable) that JCI has decided to discontinue the device. I immediately bought a cheap backup in case one fails in the future, but realized if support is ending I'd best get the latest firmware update now while it's still available. The micro USB port on the thermostat seems to provide power, but won't turn on the thermostat, so I was forced to use the 24v wires from my existing thermostats. Being lazy, I decided to use uninsulated wires to extend the HVAC wires so I didn't have to uninstall my existing thermostat. Of course they shorted, and of course it cut all power. I quickly discovered the 3 amp fuse my heat pump has to protect against idiots such as myself, and replaced it with a 5 amp I had on hand (3 amp on order). After my electrical adventure, the new thermostat finally booted up and revealed a rather old firmware version. A quick firmware update and factory reset later, and it's now on the latest firmware. I disconnected my Frankenstein wiring and packed it back into the original box in case I need it in the future. Hopefully JCI provides connectivity beyond the life of my current thermostats.
