OK a bit of a rant all around here.
1) this "featured bug has been around for a long time.. Lots of Chinese/India.. gosh knows where programed stuff is infuriating
2) If US programmers wouldn't charge a billion $'s for their time maybe we'd have better stuff.
3) If you aren't on a time server I suspect it's near impossible to keep accurate time 100% w/a battery back up.
Soon people will complain that after a power outage their clock is 5 minutes OFF and demand compensation.. heavens!!
4) Do you really want EVERYTHING open to the internet (time server)?
5) How many microwaves come back on w/ the clock set?
6) Yes all my battery operated quartz wall clocks keep great time during a power outage.. go figure. Must be special.
Though at times some clocks/watches mysteriously jump like 5 minutes ahead for no real reason.
I said this was a rant and subject to being colored by emotions and a stupid timer/power strip that jaded my
opinions on life as we know it..
Not to mention that some Microwave programmers/designers need to be drawn and quartered, alongside automobile engineers..
In Fluvals defense the fact they added a bunch of data points in their new software.. well gotta love em..

I don't think so.. Matter of fact it might just extend the life of the power supply.
But I suppose the less daily heating must be weighed against the daily surge of current when energized every day..
