The usb security key looks cool.. I'd like to look into coding apps that use these.

I bought a small $25 fryer and we made some Miso soup with fried tofu.  SOOOOO good and easy.  :Thmbsup: :Thmbsup: :Thmbsup:

Can you link us to your old fryer so we can avoid it?

You probably should look at the more expensive versions that do OTP and are programmable, I think the U2F only keys (eg. YubiKey Fido) are really only useful for websites but I haven't had a good look at the documentation at Yubico yet.

The programmable nature of the OTP versions would have let me program them for use with PayPal for example.

Didn't you recently have an incident with a fryer with a plastic lid that melted? I assumed that was why you bought that fryer.

Yes I did actually..  I just didn't have any memory of mentioning that..

I guess I told the donationcoder irc chat channel about it  :P

So yeah my prior model was this one for $16: https://www.amazon.c...-Fryer/dp/B00005KB37

I put the plastic lid on while still hot and it just melted right into the oil.

In truth though, after it cooled the melted plastic peeled right off and i could use the fryer with a glass pot lid fine.  The real reason I upgraded from the $16 to the $25 fryer was because the new one gets a bit higher in temperature which is better for frying.

Yikes! There are plenty of 1 & 2 star reviews that make this thing sound terrifying!
