External heat source, some assembly required, nothing but manual
control unless you build some automation, external cooling but I don't
think that's included beyond the end of the dump chute.  This is sort
of a German analog to the Quest that one of the regulars in the #coffee
channel on freenode recently acquired.  Yes, we thought it was funny,
too - the Quest looks more like the "fine German engineering" cliche
and vice versa.

Lots more info if you have the optional German decoder in your head:

away on a complicated piece of code and avoid total anarchy has never
managed a software project.  -- Andy Tanenbaum
