See, now a cat wouldn't do this:



Come to think of it, none of our members would put themselves into such a situation.

I'll look into it. The one I have now is programmable for multiple dayparts and weekend / weekday, which is what I've always upgraded to in the past. Frankly, I'm lazy and I'd rather have the thermostat automatically turn itself down before I get home, rather than me having to remember to log in and do it manually.
Wifi, but can also be programmed via schedules. We keep ours on a set schedule, but if I know I'm going home and I've either been freezing to death or have borderline heatstroke, I click dat button.

Joe is the person to do an accurate study, and hopefully he will before he meets the cute redhead in the area.
You know I honestly cant say it saves on energy costs, but I'm ok with that. I like to believe that rather than looking to save $x yr, its better to make an additional $x yr. This thermostat may reduce energy use, but I think its more for the convenience of it. That and being too lazy to get out of bed to change it!!

May I ask, what's the benefit of this on a thermostat?

A most beautiful picture from TonyMontana's build thread, in case you missed it.

Very nice photo there, Six.


Unrelated, my new work laptop:





I am distressed and ashamed. I hate the structure of this OS, I hate the way it abstracts the filesystem from the user, I hate the lack of a start menu, I hate the fact that it only has two USB-C ports, one of which is used for charging, and literally nothing else, meaning that I have to carry around a slew of dongles to do anything, I hate how sluggish the GUI is, I hate the fact that the keyboard does not have PgUp and PgDn, I hate the fact that I have to fire up VMWare to run the applications that my own company writes to talk to our hardware, and so on...

I did not choose this voluntarily.

If you figure out where the "Pictures" "folder" is, let me know. I've accidentally scanned things to that "folder" using image capture ever since we got our iMac, and I have yet to figure out how to access that "folder" so that I can delete all of the old scans.

The file structures on the new Apple products are so fucked up that my wife and I usually just put everything on the desktop. The desktop is super cluttered, but at least the 27" screen can fit a lot of ****! lol

Apple lost it's way around Maverick's (which I still run incidentally, and I believe was one of the last OSs that jobs probably had a say in) every since then both their hardware and software have gone significantly downhill in terms of power user things. I really don't know what I'll do when this current computer bites the dust. Maybe keep buying refurbished ones?

I have the 2nd to last gen MacBook air, and have not seen a single apple computer that I want since. The new MacBook was ruined with the usb c ports. And the software blows.
