Someone explained to me that ticket vending machines on public transit vehicles in Szeged need to be rebooted from time to time just like how #Android phones start locking up after a few days of operation and I think that is a perfect snapshot of the horribleness of #software that people are forced to use and live with.
They talked about it like it was a basic law of the universe that no software system can stay stable for more than three days.
I should have told them that Android is more advertising platform than operating system.
@grainloom I have a custom embedded web server on a pi3 controlling the local radio station:
19:01:02 up 1059 days, 8:00, 3 users, load average: 0.00, 0.00, 0.00

@pie If this needed to be solved with a hardware upgrade, then it was solved in the most wasteful way possible.
