Nest history > 10 days

Nest
Nest App

I like data. I’ve always been a bit of a data junky.  In my personal life, I’ve found looking at the data is usually interesting but not terribly useful.  But at work, I identify issues all of the time just by keeping different data up on my dashboards.    This write up however, is for my home, and my new Nest thermostat.  I was so excited to get this thing, I was curious about a dozen different aspects of these smart thermostats.  However, I was terribly disappointed when I got it installed and working and realized that the Nest only stores the last 10 days worth of data.  My assumption is they keep all the data (doesn’t everybody?) but for speed purposes they only let the customer access the last 10 days.  Whatever, its frustrating, but its not like their going to change it for little old me.

Imagine my surprise when I discovered they have an API that the customer can access. I had been bitching about the fact that Nest doesn’t give the customer access to this data, like on the website or something.. somewhere at least.  About 3 weeks later my buddy Buddah sends me this link that I guess showed up on his FaceBalls.

… I may have gotten a lil chub from this.

DEFCON!!!

So the way I figure it, there are three types of people that come to my site. Lovers and Ex-Lovers, Friends, and Them. For those of you who don’t know, Them refers to that secret society of the illuminati that are desperately trying to ruin my life. I know what your thinking, your thinking “Paranoid Freak”, or “Complete, COMPLETE MORON”. But I tell you its true. Their out there. I see them peering into my windows when I am masterbating. Oh, yeah, I forgot to mention that Them have some sort of sick twisted fantasy with me, neked, on the couch (that ya stick too when ya be’s neked on it) watching some young gob guzzulin mulitiple penetration hoe get it from 6 angles. Yes, I said six. I gots the good porn.

So, did ya get a mental image of me jerkin my shit? Did ya now that I told ya too? Told ya, you might as well call me daddy.

DefCon 12 starts TOMMORROW!!! Mat and I are headed down tonight, gonna get there as the sun rises and start the partin. And then around 2ish we pick up Davey McChode from the airport, and he starts the partin’ with us, around 3-3:30ish we get to check into the hotel…. prolly get a couple hrs of much needed sleep and then GEEK.

The amount of geekin’ will be gargantuan. Children will cry. Angels will fall. Devils will quit poking people. Strippers will loose MONEY!!! Chad will find his penis!!!!

Sometime Friday night Stan shows. This is when I am assuming the party should really get started. By then we should have the camcorder set up, the parabolic dish slowly mircowaving the neighbors and our own power circuit and OC-48 pulled into the hotel room.

I am guessing we’ll have about 10 computers. 1 camcorder. 3 digital cameras. 1 webcam (which i am going to try real hard to get setup asap). And four sexually frusterated broke guys in a hotel room. Admit it, your jealous.

Goals For DefCon:

– Come Home Alive

– Finish Slimserv.com

– Get something solid up for DeviantSociety

– Get Kelly’s PC working Correctly

– Win 37.5Million Dollars at the craps table (the .5 is for the rest of you, so that we dont have to listen to you whine)

– Leave Vegas without warrents

– Get my ass licked.

– Make it home with a $35 hooker tied in the trunk. (see, the trick on this one is actually getting home)

– Finish getting the server ready to take customers.

– Enjoy the fuck outta DefCon

I will try to throw up updates randomly throughout the week. Keep ya’ll updated. And then at the end of the week we will take a look at the goals and see what we did and did not accomplish.
