Yeah, I was down at the tower again. 😀
Ok just gonna switch out this GatesAir exciter, let’s see, move all the connectors over and hey wait what’s this
The back of the exciter is just a db 9…
Ok, I’m done….. No wait hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
WHERE DID YOU EVEN FIND A CONNECTOR THIS POWERFULLY CURSED
Hell it’s like a Phoenix Contact header had a severe case of multiple personality disorder and the adapter was nigh impossible to remove with the exciter in place and thanks I hate it.

It’s invasive. It makes a mess. It’s of no real value other than looking pretty when it’s in bloom…… accompanied by the lofty smell of stale jizz.
Please, do not plant these little shits. Research native trees in your area, plant those instead, and consider replacing existing jizz trees.
Citrix posted this really feel-good cheeky shit to Twitter and I had to be a smartass and reply about how a lot of businesses are exploiting work from home to sneak extra work into every hour of employees’ days …
…. And then a company that makes surveillance spyware for companies to use on their remote workers comes along and fucking likes my reply.
good jorb sweaty, totally glad we’ve been paying for a maintenance contract on this thing all this time
Upon having the staff working below complain they were pretty much freezing down there and looking in this confusing mess and seeing a suspiciously weak output air temperature… it was time to go investigate so I can tell the HVAC company how to fix it.
They do not successfully ever do diagnostics. I basically have to tell them what’s wrong and have them fix it.
Sometimes I wind up fixing it anyway because they have absolutely no clue how.
This is hopefully not entirely one of those.
but at least there’s no variable frequency drive involved. just a toasted drive belt that’s about two days from snapping off like an over-fried onion ring and leaving us shivering.
i don’t know i’m six days into what should have been a four day work week and my brain is just a bunch of aktivschaum.
anyway I found the thing having trouble lighting, short cycling, and periodically letting out gas farts because the “intermittent pilot” (a high voltage spark ignitor) was all fouled with crap… along with the venturis to the burners…. and pretty much….. everything
can i go home already?? youtube is recommending a video to me called “calm your anxiety”.
Apparently that heat exchanger isn’t original. We had another one of these units on which the heat exchanger cracked and Modine has entirely washed their hands of this series – no parts available anymore. The new one that was installed in its place is twice the physical size, makes huge banging and whistling noises, took ONE YEAR from order to delivery, and required a weird custom roof curb to sit in. Charming.
So I’ve known about the HP Instant Ink program for a while and I always hated it. Basically it gives you DRM encumbered ink cartridges as a service, which HP can disable at any time… Yeah uh… No thanks
This requires the printer and/or drivers to phone home to hp all the time, I never really thought of the mechanics of this until I saw someone post this response from Fiorina-Shenzhen, I mean, “hp” support ….
I don’t even have words to describe how terrible an idea this is and how terrible their product design is if it requires this. And yes… I’m sure that firmware can be exploited rotten for entry and lateral movement upon your network once you fucking DMZ your goddamn inkstortion device. Have I said fuck enough times? No. Fuck this actual shit!!!

I’m sure there’s a way that these are installed to the grounding system normally. This certainly is a way. I’m not sure if it’s a good one, but it’s certainly a way.
I dunno… 73 and good night. Just felt like posting nonsense.
Which looks sillier to an uninitiated observer, the results of this butt-dial Google search or my mess of a DMR radio codeplug?
In other news, buzzard puke alert! Changing the “Radio IP Address” field in Motorola TRBO CPS is not how you change the repeater’s Ethernet IP, it’s just how you get it to throw blank error messages with no explanation. Well that’s a solid block of fnord.
Yesterday I noticed while at the hall of suds that CNN was kinda awkwardly taking someone else’s network feed from the CPAC conference* to air leading to a kinda Dueling Chyrons situation.
Given a little more thought, I don’t blame them, would YOU want to attend that crap? I’m pretty sure among other things it’s an absolutely guaranteed COVID-19 superspreader event, but then it’s… just ew.
* pure uncut cringe.
Anyway let’s just continue shitposting things
Can you just lob these filthy things in the wash? I wish.
