I suspect these are simple bluetooth low energy beacons. Will find out more on my next visit. I have to wonder about the cost-benefit of these. It seems like you should already have a regular schedule for cleaning. So that leaves out-of-band events. Seems like a sign with a phone number for call/text would have worked as well...
... as I sit here with 20% Comcast packet loss on my 30/7 for double the money.
An interesting article about this phenonemom:
My wife can be watching Netflix in the Living Room while I'm streaming video to my computer, on an active (nearly lag-less) SSH connection, with a large file upload going on in the background, and you'd never know it. I have seen the Broadband Future, and it is good.
Unfortunately, found it in Southwest Louisiana, and I refuse stay here forever.
From this model we conclude that after the first year of publishing, nearly 11% of shared resources will be lost and after that we will continue to lose 0.02% per day.
Conceptual VR Search UI from 2001. GopherVR had a bunch of neat things. Hulk jumps, stonehenge, spiral stonehenge. We used the open source Doom code to implement the software and a lot of graph paper to make the 3d models..

End of day #1 with Known. I'm quite pleased with the results.
* brid.gy is awesome. Having +1's, likes and comments consolidated is so nice.
* Webhooks! I'm thinking of writing one to automatically archive pages to archive.org.
* PuSH appears to be fully working. Again, could extend things there..
* Google+ renders images well.
* The editor saves drafts.
* Lightweight page editor should be useful.
* AMP support is there (add ?_t=amp to any page) Some validation issues, but works.
* Real anchor tags and hyperlinks. No more writing   in posts with multiple links (like lynx)
* The built-in Photo type doesn't send the permalink to Twitter, so now I have a weird post without context. Flickr, Facebook working perfectly, might try another setting.
* I need to get to writing a Google+ outbound connector. I'm doing those by hand now.
* TInyMCE sucks. It has always sucked! If only Medium would open source their editor. At least markdown is an option.
* Looks like syndicated Google+ links are using profiles.google.com instead of plus.google.com.
* Some profile pics cloned from G+ are coming back with size 0. This shows as broken images.
* Long status posts have extra long permalink URLs.
* Built-in analytics are weak. Would rather avoid using GA for that.
* Limited import options. Will need to convert Typepad export file to Wordpress format.
* Bulleted lists line-height is tight, tight, tight.
Overall I'm pretty happy and excited about getting more content in place.
And who knew that a post on SSL/TLS certs would be soooo exciting?
Twenty-five years ago, a small band of programmers from the University of Minnesota ruled the internet.
And then they didn’t.
Hyperbolic discounting of future costs and Ulysses pacts are apropos to many situations. For example, technical debt.
