US tax product suggestion
W-2s and 1099s are due out today! When you get them, try https://www.freetaxusa.com/ instead of turbotax. free version is full-featured, support & audit defense upsell is only $7, and the UI is way snappier.
It can't try to import your income forms, but turbotax is bad at that anyway and I already have to do a bunch of manual corrections because (by law) employee stock sales are misreported on the 1099-B in a way that makes you pay too much tax if you don't. Thanks Intuit.
house rant, electrical
landlord installed a new thermostat for the living room in October because the old one burned out (by which I mean the contacts fused or something and you could see scorch marks on the paper (!) insulation on the back)
new one burned out yesterday, after almost exactly four months, but was faster and noisier about it. so I've got it cranked all the way up (to avoid arcing) and am using the circuit breaker to manually get some heat, which is probably bad for it
I'm really annoyed at the previous owner who did the baseboard conversion to this house - there's this huge hole with a mediocre fill in the hardwood floor that I can tell was a return for forced air, probably was oil. When the old thermostat burned out I measured the current at 24.5 amps and as far as I can tell there just isn't a thermostat on the market rated for that. But the old one was rated for 23A if I remember right and the new one for 22A, which is where they seem to cap out.
Huh, what do you know, that scaremongering article about Apple's OCSP implementation sending application hashs was inaccurate 🙃
Neither does it seem to send the ISP, city or state, by the way.
