The key words are "Mean Time", there are always outliers in both directions. The question you should ask is what the standard deviation is.
Have you heard about the bathtub curve?
It's when you blend together the curves for "Infant mortality failures" with "Wearout failures".
Personally I passed from negative to positive inclination yesterday.
Never heard of the game Day of infamy before, but as it was on offer on Steam and got positive reviews I spent a few bucks on it. It turns out to be a fantastic WWII FPS game (and that means a lot from someone spoilt by games like Battlefield).
One problem though, on my Dell gaming notebook, which is not exactly low spec, it runs hot after only minutes of playing and the fans start blazing. So be warned https://www.slant.co/topics/6407/viewpoints/5/~world-war-ii-games-on-steam~day-of-infamy[^]
As I suspected "Day of infamy" is not on the list of NVidia supported games: https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/geforce-experience/games/
A well known title like Skyrim is, and this runs much better on my gaming notebook without generating too much heat.
The free to play "Heroes & Generals" is on the list, but sadly still generates a lot of heat
I need a smart watering can
I just watered my plants, hopefully as I should have.
One of my plants is showing signs of not doing so well (but I'm having a hard time recognizing such signs from plants).
What I need is a watering can that tells me how much water my plants need, when they need it, if I should add some Pokon, if the plants get enough sun or too much...
Surely something like that exists?
In fact, a quick Google tells me it does: Freiya Is a Smart Watering Can that May Save Your Plants | Digital Trends[^]
I'll have to keep this in mind in case my new plants become as ill-fated as all my previous plants
But I guess I'm ruining your topic with useful IoT devices.
Although it uses BlueTooth, not sure if it's actually IoT...
