Dear followers,

thanks for being interested in this project! Unfortunately, I do not have not had much time to work on it. As mentioned in the status, the heating is causing some headache. These are some observations:

Summary: while temperature monitoring and LED blinking works like a charm, powering the CPUs was so far not successful in a reproducible manner and I could not verify that the idea of periodically triggering the self-test would really work.
