rant about mandatory proprietary #apps 

I just bought some with and (active noise canceling).

While they were quite pricy, you can't really use them without installing the , invasive (reports.exodus-privacy.eu.org/) app from .

Why can't they provide a simple, open source app just for configuration?

So, if you don't want to install crap on your phone, you may shoud skip the bose headphones.

When you just decided to speed up your bothroom visits by letting your smartphone outside:

#webdev #email #validation #meetup 

How can it be, that so many sites can not validate E-Mail addresses? 😡

I use a lot of Addresses with a '+' and so many sites say: "ohh, that is not correct".

I just missed a session at meetup.com because they don't recognize such addresses as valid.

Although it's not trivial, a looking at the specification (tools.ietf.org/html/rfc5322#se) should be taken if someone implements a validator.

Hacking non-smart watches 🛠️⌚ 

Has anyone experience with bluetooth watches?

I found some patches / snippets in their android app, it looks a bit like CR16c, but I'm not sure.

The model on Hand is GW-B5600 (module 3461) and has some limited BLE functionality.

fccid.io/BBQS0DW has only pictures with blobs.

Reversing the firmware would not be just cool, but maybe offer cool features like TOTP or other stuff.

Got myself a cheap bloodpressure measurment device:

* found the serial port
* got somekind of internal mode

Maybe I'll try to get into it.
But I've not heard of JL or AC19CK… but chenbingdom.com seems to manufacture chips with the JL label.

Finally put some of my index on inventaire.io/inventory/bg

Since the import feature does not automatically merge books, it looks like I got nearly every book three times.

Currently my inventory is only visible for friends. I'm not sure if I should make it public.

Any ideas?

Endlich wieder Grün auf der Fensterbank 😊🌿🌵

Ich hoffe, dass sich das kleine Ding wieder berappelt und mir nicht versehentlich zu nahe kommt.

Unwichtiges aus dem Alltag 

Da will ich die Gehäuseschale von meinem Dect-Phone wieder andrücken, und muss feststellen, dass auch dieser Akku Blähungen hat. :/

Könnten Akkus das nicht reporten, dass sie nicht mehr sicher sind?

Irgendwie doof diese ganzen Gefahren erst durch Zufall zu entdecken.

windows10, datenschutz, verwaltung, microsoft 

LDA Bayern (Landesamt für Datenschutz Bayern):

Alles Ok!

Microsoft hat ein Team (>10) von Techniker*Innen geschickt, und dann haben wir es geschafft die Enterprise Variante so zu konfigurieren, dass kaum noch Daten an Microsoft fließen.
Für die anderen Varianten sieht es schlecht aus.

10? Ist da der nicht komplett kaputt? Das hat das# BSI doch schon berichtet.

Na gut, da die in Bayern (Landesamt für Datenschutz, Arbeitskreis Technik), sollen das noch mal abklären.

Wie viele Microsoft-Techniker*innen braucht es, um die Enterprise so zu konfigurieren, dass es den Datenschutz halbwegs beachtet?


Finally got this cut plotter format from engineered (fcm, used in the scan'n'cut and design'n'cut series) \o/

I now have a script to convert fcm to svg.

After a bit of sleep and some polishing it will find it's way into a public git repo.

Inkscape plugin is still a todo.

jitsi stuff 

I've set up meet.xaos.space but now a few questions are bugging me:

Is there a good way to check if a or server is working well?

Especially if the direct UDP connections between peers could be established?

What is the best way to turn off all logging?
