good morning #wednesdaywisdom
good morning, change my mind
@ashfurrow I'd watch Louder with Q, sounds like a way better show
@amsomniac hard to imagine that it'd be worse!
@ashfurrow Nah... humanity is tbh
@ashfurrow Holy shit, this made me cackle like a supervillainess
@ashfurrow I wish I could change his mind, but I really can't think of a valid argument at the moment. Give me a millennium or two, I might come up with something.
@ashfurrow Hang on a minute! I refuse to take morality lessons from an omnipotent, smarmy arsehole that put Tasha Yar in a blast freezer.
@ashfurrow I feel the same way about it
@ashfurrow first thing coming to my mind when seeing that pic preview in my timeline (and before seeing it full-size or reading your text): Abbey Road… Just missing those 4 dudes…
@ashfurrow Thank goodness Brian Wilson didn't have that problem or The Beach Boys might not have such a rich back-catalogue.
@ashfurrow lol at the microsd adapter
@danielle I don't even know why I own this, I think for my Raspberry Pi?
@ashfurrow are those your top picks?
@aru if I had my pick, I'd take the purple one
@_0x00_ dunno! Just seemed funny to me.
@ashfurrow it looks like the bigger bells are for specific kinds of trouble.
@ashfurrow Maybe smaller has a higher pitch and that is easier to hear or more attention-grabbing, compared with the others?
@ashfurrow Makes the highest pitched sound.
@ashfurrow Did or does the place fab PC boards.
@AskChip it's the 24th story of an old NYC Chinatown high-rise, so anything's possible!
@ashfurrow I worked at a fab plant many years ago and the ovens were entire rooms where you slide long racks of boards into the bake the epoxy mask after the screen room put it on. Wall mounted oven thermostat outside the doors. When they opened those doors the heat just rolled out.
@ashfurrow Maybe it controls the air conditioning?
@ashfurrow hey, someone at least thought to label the small box. I definitely have one in my house that is unlabled
@ashfurrow I’m working in fire systems for my day job. I’m no expert and we do a lot of other work too so these are my guesses based on my exposure level. Trouble may reflect some sort of error in the equipment or wiring like a short or a ground fault. Smoke means that a detector has been triggered and water flow means that sprinklers are active AKA hello shit, meet fan. Again there are probably others who know more. But this is my first toot. So who gives a hoot.
@chrismurray I didn’t even think of how the different bells would produce different pitches
