OT, non-Linux, non-computer. I'm really steamed that I spend ca. $100
on electric balnkets that just gradually stop working over a period
of 12 to 24 months.
Current electric blankets have solid state electronics in the control
units and not much else. Googling reveals little about electric
blanket technology except:
+ Marketing and promotional bumpf,
+ Other people steamed about the same early failure, and
+ Repair gurus who can't get into the sealed controllers and "don't
do electric blankets."
Anybody here actually understand current electric blanket technology?
These gh**-**mn things can't be literally unfixable but I'm very far
from being an electronics whiz.
Damn! I hate electronics that don't come with a complete technical
manual and a supported programming language. 8-(
