Bob Lutz strikes again

Bob Lutz is once again calling for Tesa's demise, telling CNBC on Tuesday April 2nd, 2019 that Tesla is going to have a very bad time in the next 5 years. He says, and I quote:

"Currently I see no bright future for Tesla whatsoever...its very hard to conjure up a scenario by which Tesla looks good 5 years from now"

You know, I'm not sure I even understand why CNBC has him on, part of me thinks they're trolling him and they think its funny to have this old timer on time and time again just to humiliate himself.

But hey, at least he's consistent.  Maybe we should worry if ever turns into a Tesla bull.

Judge may order Musk to step down as CEO, Oppenheimer analyst says from CNBC.

Ducky Keyboard not working after power outage

This specifically pertains to the Ducky Zero DK2108.

After a power outage the keyboard stopped responding, and all three greens lights were flashing repeatedly (Caps Lock, ScrLk, NumLk)

After some research, it was determined that the firmware was likely damaged, and a reinstall of the firmware using the Ducky updater was necessary.  I could not find the software on the Ducky website.  Thank you to the support team at for sending me the software the next day.

** Please note, this update is for the Ducky Zero DK2108 model only. ** 
1, Make sure the keyboard is plugged into the back of your PC and disconnect all other unused devices from your PC.
2. Run USB_FD.exe (The application should detect your keyboard and automatically populate the Device box). File previously supplied.
3. Click on the 3 dots next to the Firmware box and select the L1886V25.bin file.
4. Click the Download button to run the update.
