Kingsong s18 lift sensor repair
Category: electric unicycle
I just recently replaced the control board on my s18 after I tripped over the powercord and sadly cracked the power socket.

Sadly, after the surgery was complete, the lift sensor on the Kingsong s18 did not work when I would lift the handle to carry it while still on :( Instead, the wheel spins out and was really inconvenient to have to turn on and off to carry it somewhwre.

It was hard to find answers but Jason from had a tip. Apparently, the lift sensr works by magnetic field detection and the if the magnet on the motherboard is not directed toward the trolley handle where the corresponding magnet sits, then it can't detect its up.

So I reopened up the EUC and moved the magnet sensor toward the handle a bit. I tried it a few times till it was perfect then screwed everything back in. Works like a charm now everytime. Happy to help anyone who needs it.

Oh I see the sheep are there too. Is this the entirety of your flock? :D

How many of these dolls have you hoarded? More importantly, where do they live and what happened to the little sheep? Are these the nextgen sheep?

If I ever get 'home' again...I'd love to try this! Is it only seasonal or year round on the menu?

Went to Rochester for the dentist on Friday before picking up (e:hodown) from the airport. Watched murder documentaries on Field st and ate some delicious Pho at Sea.

Centos Stream
Category: linux
I was sad to hear about the CentOS changes when they were first posted on the centos blog but I am going to trying to not freak and think it might be a positive move. I mean it seems in the last few years I have more often been annoyed at how behind CentOS was from the current kernel. Maybe this will make it better. This article made me feel at least a little bit better.

The thing that annoyed me the most was that I had just moved servers from CENTOS 6 to 8 and I should have maybe just gone to 7. I guess only time will tell.

Fingers crossed. Server #1 - done!
