@benjojo @jamesog The mention of in James' reply wasn't a link for me either, like my mention of it here is unlikely to be as well

@jamesog We never used the learning functionality in the Nest when we had one. It was easier to program a schedule and use that.

In the current house we instead have a wall mounted thermostat and a schedule we can program. That works sufficiently for us. The only thing we perhaps could do with, was the ability to set a lower temperature at night (we instead turn it off using the schedule) and some way of turning the heating off remotely, in case we forgot and are away for a while

@alasdair I've got a corner of the garage where I've got a table to work on and my tools so far. It definitely makes it easier when you've got a designated space because I don't have to tidy everything away after each time I've done some work

@alasdair Hi, it's been a while! Personally I'm starting to get into some amateur woodworking as a hobby. Being able to create something physical in a relatively short time at home feels great.
Work wise it's pretty much same old, same old

Perhaps I should have used as a hashtag in that post. That seems like a hashtag that should exist?

@jamesog I'm enjoying my own instance so far. You can run on mine if you want to try it out. I don't have to deal with moderation and the speed is great.
It's also just small things like not having to worry about refreshing the feed one time too many and worrying about what load that gives on an already overloaded server

The Programmers’ Credo: we do these things not because they are easy, but because we thought they were going to be easy.

@beezly How is the AWS source going to work when there are leap seconds and it does smearing?

@jamesog @sevan Probably, but I don't know if that is the one from the sending or receiving side.

It also makes me wonder if you can spoof the sending timestamp or if there's some limit in place for how old messages servers will accept

@jamesog @sevan It might have been smart to include a timestamp of when you sent the message, so it's easier to work out the delay

@elithrar Alright, I'll give it a couple more episodes then, thanks!

@elithrar I've seen the first episode and didn't immediately feel hooked. How far into it do I need to get before I get to that point?
