I've bought new stainless steel thermos, which are advertised to "Keeps Hot to 14Hrs".
They arrived yesterday, so I'm just testing them (I've got a funeral 4 hours away next Monday, so I'd like hot coffee available for 12 hours t cover driving there and back).

Pour boiling water in, measure it with a thermocouple, check every hour till I go to bed.
I end up with values that end up like this:
Hours	C
0.00	93
1.00	91
2.00	88
3.00	86
4.00	82
6.00	78
7.00	75
9.50	70
14.00	63
16.00	60
All I want is a simple scatter chart, with hours as X axis, and degrees C as Y ... a "best fit" trend line would be nice, but I have a red biro so it's not essential (that's the Advanced Version).

Can I persuade it to do that? It seems not. I've now got a YouTube video to watch which promises to show me how, but ... the amount of time I've wasted on this this morning, I could have used an SQL DB, the Chart Control and banged out a documented, GIT based WinForms app and still had time for another coffee ... Sigh | :sigh:
Heck in the four minutes the YouTube video runs, I could have chucked together an undocumented Winforms app with the Chart control and a fixed set of values. Maybe I will. Maybe I'll just seethe a bit instead, and post the CCC ...

Why do people make simple stuff so pointlessly difficult?
