If the modifications are simple enough, I would love to implement them, just for extra braking power and options. Also, if the throttle max speed is disconnected, I wanted to reconnect it, because I really don't need 30mph in all gears. I need the three way switch to actually function.

But I can't seem to even find wiring info...

Biggest reason I went into this was to do some basic maintenance. The connector for my charger was loose and spinning in the socket, which was making me jumpy. I hated plugging in the charger, because my brain would run wild, thinking it's going to fry me.

Also, the holes underneath the scooter were letting in water and dirt, which I wanted to clean out.
I also wanted to figure out some info, and find that regenerative braking mod I saw for Citicoco scooters.

One of the two leads down to an XT60 connector that runs back into a block of wires that ends at the controller. The other goes straight to the controller itself.

I made a stupid mistake. I didn't take a photo of a wiring harness before disconnecting the lead from the the charging input.
There are two possible connection points.
I am reasonably sure of which one, but the deep doubt is LOUD in my head.

Medical griping (cw: internal medicine, phrasings of body horror?) 

Why is it, that in an age where we can literally rearrange a person's guts and move internal organs from one body to another, that we can't have a simple port on our bodies for medical monitoring and delivery hardware?

Imagine a diabetic with a capsule that gets changed weekly, has a tracker for their CGM to connect, and the ability to release a dose of insulin or a glucose concentrate in case of emergency.

Imagine the kidney transplant recipient with a timed release dosing pod for their anti-rejection meds.

And, if we can keep fair-for-consumers pricing in mind, medical outcomes have room to improve.

I'm just musing this hour.


Present me: "Huh. I actually got the washer laden with a full load, and the second load is on standby. Take that, past me!"

Past me: "But you still haven't plugged your scooter in."

Present me: "... feck."

Present me: "You need to go plug your scooter in, and start some laundry for tomorrow."

Also present me: "Too much like the right thing to do. Five more minutes."

Have you ever missed the idea of something, but not the actual something the idea is based on?

That's me with Final Fantasy XIV right now. I like the idea of a vast, sweeping story with stuff to do in it. I especially liked the concept of crafting stuff that others can go use.

I don't care in the slightest for the implementation that makes it pointless to be a Monk once you get through the original storyline stuff, and are FORCED to play with 23 others at the same time to get to the next area for crafting supplies, of which players are either a technicolor death ray show, or a technicolor healing show, or able to just eat the damage.

Melee DPS, at least as MNK, feel like they are getting shat on. Try to get up on something that needs to die, and the light show just made you waste your ability to close the gap, which is now on enough cooldown to make you wish you hadn't used it.

Intriguingly, I got my Anarchy Online account back... and I just can't stand playing it anymore. Crafting is very much shoehorned into one or two professions, neither of which I play, and the playerbase just isn't *there* to bother playing.

Mental funk. 

I came home from work last night, promptly stripped, and laid in bed.
I took no medicine, slept fitfully, didn't eat dinner, and just relaxed, for varying terms of 'relax'.

I really need to get up, now that it's ten in the morning, and get to the post office. I bought shoes I can't fucking wear, and can at least get a credit for them.

But I can't get out of bed.
It requires clothes to go places.

If you have a cellphone seized by a law enforcement agency or other TLA, chances are they'll use Cellbrite's wares to sift through your data.

Here, Signal analyses Cellebrite's software's own security. Want to guess how good it is? =:)


(*Love* the coda, too)

Broken projects stack. 

I cannot monotask. My brain right now is incapable of picking one task to complete.

I cannot figure out why my blog won't federate, and hasn't for fifteen months now.

I can't find any simple, plausible instructions for migrating to Caddy from Apache, because I think it'll be a better fit on the machine I'm running it on.

The display I had harvested to use with my smart mirror project doesn't seem to work, and I can't identify whether it's the display itself that's broken, or if it's the board I'm using with the display to do things that's busted.

I really wanted to sit down and learn CSS grids, so I can finish updating my first website ever.

I want to get as much of my mail that's currently destined for my .us domain migrated either backward to my legacy .net domain, or forward to my .blue or .top domains so I can stop paying for a domain that doesn't let me hide my fucking address in whois data.

I just want my vaccine for this current nightmare, and to be allowed to travel and see my partner, 'cause I miss them. :(

I'm hitting the edge of my temper activation zone right now. This is frustrating. I CANNOT monotask, and multitasking is generating so much brain noise that it's also frustrating.

AEIOURGH. :battery_underflow:​

Kink (Pumping)+ 

So, I recently got a Monster Sphere in the mail to upgrade my pumping game after realizing that the guys at Monster Tube will not likely ever dip below the $300 mark for their hinged setup.

With postage, I was under the $200 mark for the Sphere, and I've been in the thing for the early part of the afternoon. I'm going to have to take a break and fix some food soon, because blood glucose is dropping, but holy fuck, this thing is fun. I doubt I will ever grow large enough to fully fill the sphere, but if I do, it'll be a total goal.

Birthday (in a month)+ 

It's the first of March somewhere.

As is my custom, I mention my birthday about a month in advance, because otherwise it gets lost in the noise of bullshit jokes that happen on April 1st.

Why yes, it'll be my 39th birthday in a month's time.

That's all. :)

Fun tidbit: In the real world, I have minimal interest in automobiles and other vehicles.
If it is not all electric, or at least a really good hybrid, I don't have a particular want for the vehicle.

Related: Any company that only sells me an expensive as hell perpetual license to operate the vehicle and retains the ability to make changes to the vehicle OVER THE AIR with OR WITHOUT my expressed consent is a non-option.

That is why I have πŸ’™ for Arcimoto, and mostly salt for Tesla. None of this update-over-the-air mess for me, thanks.

On the other hand, I want to go hooning about in Forza Horizon 4, maybe slide around a roundabout to Fred V & Grafix's "Sunrise", peg the go juice button right as the beat drops into a straightaway and watch the beastmobile that is the Rimac Concept 2 eat all contenders, and then relax with some Dyson Sphere Project or Cities: Skylines.
It will be beneficial, however, to actually go do the class assignment FIRST, however. So I will go eat, plug my e-scooter in, and then do the work.

... and order a replacement helmet. Holy crap, I need one, since my previous one was stolen by some turd in December.
