I have a Samsung DW-FN320T dishwasher, which is about 5+ years old. It was not used very often because of maid at home. But now due to COVID lockdown the dishwasher started getting used heavily – almost twice a day because authorities banned maids to contain the spread of the disease.
One day though, it stopped working – the symptom, it showed heater error which as per the manual means either of temperature sensor, heating coil or some low sensing device is dead. So I called up my usual home repair technician, he came and found some plastic part of a […]
I have a Phillips sound bar, must be about 6-7 years old. Today while watching TV, I couldn’t increase the sound volume using the remote, and unfortunately using the remote control is the only way to change the Soundbar’s settings.
A unique situation in which I wanted to dump the memory of a program running on a microcontroller – the program can send data through serial port, but for it to make sense for the programmer it has to be dumped in a readable format. And another challenge was that the controller was programmable only from MS Windows. So this dumping program must be able to run on Win64.
I chose Golang for this purpose as I don’t know the serial port reading API of Win32/64 but I can build for Win64 using Golang on […]
I have been tracking Golang for quite a while since I came to know about it I guess about 3 years ago primarily because it is very easy to use and build static binaries that just work about anywhere. And no dealing with memory allocation stuff which often lead to frustrations and segmentation fault bugs soaking up hours of your time to solve those.
As a OpenWRT user running a Go program on OpenWRT had been one of my most desired things. So here it is, finally, a hello world program running my TP Link […]
The story here is about my bad experience with a Nokia 7 Plus smartphone which is a certified Android One device.
I have been using Android over the last 7-8 years or so, and like every geek out there I was involved in flashing custom ROMs and tracking XDA forums for new builds. I even had one of the best phones suited for this purpose – The LG Nexus 4.
In 2016, I came across a nice deal for an on-ear headphone – The Motorola Tracks Air. It was selling on Flipkart for ₹2500. That was steal deal, considering the original price is ₹8990. I used it for on and off for quite some time but the on-ear type meant it started hurting my ears when using them for more than 30 minutes. So gradually the usage waned off and I stopped using it. Usually I do not buy new stuff unless the previous one I have is completely dead, this is especially true in case of electronics. Because of […]
