Apple: 'Do Not Disturb' will remain disturbed until January 7, 2013

You might have been one of those who noticed over the New Year that your iPhone 5 wasn't disturbing you.

This was quite some time after it was supposed to disturb you.

And quite some time, even, after Apple had released an ad that celebrated this fine feature.
I would like to disturb you with some news.

Apple support has posted a notice that admits there might be a little problem.

Somehow, the Do Not Disturb function is staying on, even when people thought they had programmed it only for a certain period of time. (For those who don't already know, Do Not Disturb is a feature that users are supposed to be able to switch on to silence in-coming calls, alerts, and notifications, or set up to perform such silencing during a preordained period of time.)
Apple admits that this is affecting not merely some users of the iPhone but also of the iPad and the iPod Touch.

The notice explains: "Do Not Disturb scheduling feature will resume normal functionality after January 7, 2013. Before this date, you should manually turn the Do Not Disturb feature on or off."
To do this you must "tap Settings > Notifications > Do Not Disturb and switch Scheduled to Off."
There is no explanation as to why it will take Apple another few days to fix the problem.

Perhaps there are more Apple employees than usual on vacation at this time and they've all got their Do Not Disturb malfunctioning on their iPhones.

Brivis Heater - Error Code #69

My Brivis HX23 Heater broke down this week.  H01 Code #69.  This code was not even listed in the User Manual!  Searching around the web and here is what I found: Secret Reset: This is not in the User Manual.  On the networker controller press FUNCTION > 1 > 4 keys and the screen will go blank and come back on after 30 seconds, this has rebooted the main PCB and reset the fault code. Use this with caution as too much gas build up could cause an explosion. Use it only after the unit has enough time to air out the gas build up. What is Code #69 or any other unpublished codes?  The best way to find out is to open up the heater unit.   There is a little LCD on the PCB showing what error exactly is. (Note: Opening up the unit may void your warranty.)
