power supplies should connect to the main board with a data pin as well and report voltage, current draw, frequency, and internal temperature so it can be exposed via i2c like everything else on the board. i shouldn’t need to buy a kill-a-watt to see this data.

@stux @stux twitter has special bespoke protections on that account to keep staff from fucking with it even in internal tools. some CSR suspended trump on the CSR’s last day at work and afterwards twitter presumably hardcoded an exception for that account in their admin panel.
