You could solder that to a stove and have an ohm on the range.

Pretty much everything in the original Star Trek series has come to pass, with the exceptions of star ships with warp-drive and transporter technology. The tech stuff looks good on TV, of course, but we can get into a lot of tribble when it comes to trusting in our technology too much.

Why? Are there troubles with tribbles?

It's cool stuff, indeed. But for each advance in this kind of stuff, the potential for abuse and a single point of failure causing a catastrophe is increased.

All this stuff is dependent upon the electrical grid being up and the Internet being up. What happens when those systems we're completely dependent upon go down for long periods of time?

Our complete reliance upon an electrical grid (with no other alternatives) and the so-called "Internet of Things" are a very bad things, IMHO. Oh-jeez

I agree. DW dives a Chevy Volt and it is the most amazing and ANNOYING car/thing I have ever dealt with beyond the fact there is absolutely NO privacy with it. And then there are smart TV's that listen and upload what you say in "it's" presence. GRRRRRR I gotta go for a walk <sigh>

You make a good point, friends of mine say that many of the maintenance technicians around here are in the 50+ age group with no youngsters coming through to take over.
We used to have decent apprenticeships over here to learn trade skills, sadly no more, well not of the same quality.

RE: Home Automation
Most things aren't worth the effort to fix. I wouldn't be bothered to fix a control board on a refrigerator. Just throw the board away and buy another. Although, today, I spent a couple of hours replacing the heater, belt, idler pulley, and drum bearing on my dryer. Easy fixes for $125 and it runs like new again. Unless the electronics break it should last another 9 years.

Yes I fall into the 50+ crowd. Smile The generation that actually took the time to learn something other than A B Up Down reset or what are the kardashians up to today.

RE: Home Automation
Part of the fun in fixing something today is finding the darn parts. I try to do some of the work myself, but don't like messing with electrics (get zapped) or gas (go boom). Some minor plumbing I'll mess with, but nothing major.

We're working on a video system upgrade at church to do live streaming and I know what has to be done and can do, but we are hiring the folks who put in the original system last year to do the installs and debugging. Don't want to get the blame when something goes wrong.

BTW, I am about ready to be off for church to do sound and video for 3 services tonight. My wife says at time it is my second home.
