After chronicling the wonderful experience I had a few days ago, it happened again on Sunday. So, I went through the whole routine of ripping off the old pod and putting on a new one. This time however, I decided to figure out why it happened. Once could be a fluke, but twice, less than a week a part? Something wasn’t set right. So I started digging through the menus on the PDM that controls the pod and found a setting conviently labeled ‘Automatic Pod Shut Off,’ and as you can guess, its option was a number of hours. I had it set to 12 hours, meaning if the pod hadn’t gotten a signal from the PDM in 12 hours it would automatically shut off. So I went ahead and changed that setting to 17 hours and made sure to bring the PDM upstairs with me when I went to bed and remembered to take downstairs when I ate breakfast, which I left on the table as I left the house this morning to go to work.
As the old folks say, “C’est la vie, it just shows you never can tell.”
