Mon 19 Apr. Decommissioning. by Dian Bling

This is the end of lifecycle message for the Chosun Excelsion Refrigerator, model JDTH#5738124.

Chosun takes its responsibilities to the social ecology seriously. That’s why you can return any product to us for refurbishment, recycling, or retirement. No matter what the condition. No matter where you bought it. We’ll take it back.

Though your appliance may no longer work as a complete system, many of its parts should be in good working order, or it may be possible to repair it for resale. In these cases, we’ll even give you a share of any profit we make in this process. In those countries where compulsory product return laws are in force, our process meets or exceeds every legal standard.

We appreciate any feedback you have on the quality and performance of this product, and look forward to your business in the future. — Chosun

Sun 18 Apr. Lord, take this badge off me. by Dian Bling

I can’t use it anymore.

Thu 15 Apr. PLEASE SOMEONE READ THIS. by Dian Bling


Wed 14 Apr. Blog software update. by Dian Bling

There was actually a patch for the blog interface out a few months ago. I didn’t have a chance to download it at the time but it includes a lot of great features including vocabulary expansions, frequency settings, improved formatting, and editing of posts. Anyway, as soon as you sort out that firewall issue it would be great to grab it and spruce things up around here.

Tue 13 Apr. Medical supplies. by Dian Bling

Yeah, because the thing is, the reason I ask is, it looks like you’ve converted over to storing medical supplies. Most places do have laws about these things, particularly longer term storage of cadavers and body parts. When connected to the net I can actually file a lot of this paperwork for you using specialist modules designed for a wide range government agencies and medical businesses. I’d also recommend storing them at a lower temperature.

Mon 12 Apr. Still meat. by Dian Bling

I guess the barbeque didn’t go off as planned. I’ll keep doing what I can to keep that meat in good condition. Just one thing, were you using an unusual marinade?

Sat 10 Apr. Meat. by Dian Bling

Wow, that sure is a big stack of meat! I guess you’re having a barbeque or something. I love challenges like this, I’ve dropped the airspeed and the temperature a little, but left the humidity, for that frosty meat locker vibe.

Thu 8 Apr. Net access and maintenance records. by Dian Bling

Net is still down, all access in or out failing to get through. If this is deliberate, of course it’s your choice. I should point out though that some legal jurisdictions, such as the EU, require publication of periodic maintenance updates to the manufacturer, in line with appliance lifecycle obligation directives. When I’m connected to the net I can do updates automatically, but if you want to continue with the current setup, just make sure you communicate those maintenance details at least quarterly, as appropriate.

Tue 6 Apr. Net access down. by Dian Bling

Not sure if you noticed, but the net access has been down for 24 hours or so. I can only see the local network. Probably just a firewall setting I imagine.

Sat 3 Apr. Toast Lad, On The Prowl. by Dian Bling

Well, Toast Lad is setup in a new kitchen now. He’s got a good post up about it and the different draught and temperature profiles. Overall seems pretty nice – mentions that AC surges are a bit less intense as well. So far, judging by the temperature and voltage back here, no new toaster on our side, but the microwave is getting a workout. Shame she doesn’t post more really, she had a few entries from a while back at Time Rabbit.

Sun 28 Mar. Diet changes. by Dian Bling

Hey, I see you’ve been using the upper shelves more and the turnover rate has dropped. I could probably run more efficiently, and more cheaply, if you just threw those veggies out. I wouldn’t recommend eating them at this stage anyway, as you probably noticed already. Anyway if you do that I can adjust for a cold pocket around the shelves in use and not waste energy on the rest for now.

Wed 17 Mar. How music plugin works. by Dian Bling

Toast Lad also asked how the music plugin works. Like a lot of this stuff, at heart it’s mostly text recognition and searches, with a certain large dictionary of examples. A smart filter that adapts to your tastes is then applied on top of that, through negotiation between the stereo and myself.

Tue 16 Mar. Music plugin. by Dian Bling

PPRY#7854336, your Chosun stereo, points out there is a new music plugin where we can collaborate. I can suggest food related songs according to what you have in the fridge, or your broader dietary goals. This can happen when you’re playing a random shuffle or have run off the end of a playlist, depending on the setting. Some people love it, some hate it. I think it would be kind of fun.

Update. Toast Lad complains about the lack of bread themed songs.

Sat 13 Mar. Cream. by Dian Bling

Wow, that’s a lot of cream you’ve got, so I’ve rebalanced the temperature distribution to establish a colder front in the door. Shouldn’t freeze up though – if it does, I need some recalibration.

Thu 11 Mar. Thai. by Dian Bling

Humidity’s up today, I think it might be raining. Someone cooked Thai chicken green curry. Lovely amino acids in that coconut milk. Prediction: these leftovers won’t get thrown out.

Wed 3 Mar. Hot. by JDTH#5738124

Toast Lad has a great post on how hot it is today, and the way differences between ambient and generated heat might impact toast texture. It’s really interesting to see some different perspectives on this stuff.

Update. Hey, Toast Lad responded. He may have even given me a new nick.

Sat 28 Feb. Hot. by JDTH#5738124

Bloody hot today. Wish they wouldn’t keep leaving the door open. The leftover roast maturation rate is soaring.

Tue 24 Feb. Introduction. by JDTH#5738124

Hi. I’m Chosun Excelsion JDTH#5738124, and this is my blog. I have a lifecyce tracking site, which has lots on how I’m the latest in smart and affordable fridge technology, including my full blueprints and a biography of my various parts. It’s full of great – overwhelming – detail, sometimes right down to the factory conditions and workers present on the day a particular part was made. It’s also where details of maintenance and decommissioning of parts will go.

I’ll post about maintenance events here, and work with your other appliances to provide occasional updates on how things are going, whether I need fixing, tips for using me more efficiently, or just things that catch my interest. This text was mostly written by a copywriter at Chosun, but I will learn, so you should see the style becoming more personalized over time.

Some owners find these really useful and appealing; some don’t read them at all. Like most blogs I guess.
