    So, the price of heating my apartment has gone up significantly since last year and a lot of people have noticed the same trend. As a geek, I want not just any solutions, but geekiest solutions possible to that - enter a Smart Home system. The heating in my apartment is separated from all other apartments with a separate heat meter that measures both heating water flow and the temperature difference on the incoming and outgoing pipes, so if I reduce the heating consumption I will immediately see that in lower heating bills. This particular smart home system is very simple and made in Latvia and also relatively cheap, so I decided to give this a try.

        Pensijas prognoze - 18.43

        Update: I apologise for spamming all the nice people on Planet Debian with this unrelated post in foreign language - it got mis-tagged and (although I tried classifying it correctly and removing it from the separate Debian-only RSS feed going to the Debian Planet) Planet software just keeps it around until admins get a spare moment to remove it manually. The basic idea of the post is that there is a e-government service by the Latvian government that provides any citizen a way to check what their pension would be, but it is kinda useless, because it calculates what you pension would be if you decided to retire right now. So in the post below I provide a few simple steps on how to estimate what the real pension could be (in todays currency values) if a person kept paying into the system at the same rate until the normal retirement age.
