Wir sollten mindestens die Gewohnheit staatliche Softwareprojekte als Open Source zu entwickeln aus der COVID-Zeit beibehalten.

I actually missed the article being published in the ft:pedia, but now it's also on my blog with a more explanation about what fischertechnik is doing in the smart home space: humanoids.be/log/2019/03/susta

The best thing I've ever done to confuse users is to not show animated GIFs they chose if they have the reduced motion preference set in their browser.

⚠️ IMPORTANT: Users of Element Desktop/Web/Android, FluffyChat & Nheko should upgrade immediately to address a critical encryption vulnerability.

To youtube's credit, those creators they bought exclusivity from seem to drive traffic today, since the streaming edge servers appear to be struggling with bandwidth and are even randomly cutting streams.

Very excited about E/V Nautilus recovering their two ROVs today (see nautiluslive.org/blog/2021/08/ ), so I thought I'd share a Matrix room I made to discuss subsea/underwater operations and science: matrix.to/#/#subsea:humanoids.

Renovate bot is nice and easy to setup, even if you have to guess a lot about how you're supposed to configure it. Nextcloud OAuth with gitea was also surprisingly simple. However, I have not yet managed to get gitea to find the signing key for commits it generates.

Neat, internet broke again. At least this time I had the fallback setup close.

Oh, looks like there's movement in the world of federated code repos (mainly for issues and such, so you don't need 10 million accounts). Feeling less bad about publishing small projects only on my gitea then.

It felt good to finally unplug the proprietary home automation controller from my network. Back to a fairly open system based on webthings.io . Mostly have to improve the way the AV stack works and remote control interactions.

I'd love to set up but the setup is extremely convoluted currently. You want to somehow luck into finding the production branch and then you're still pretty much required to use docker-compose, because there's no published images (for the non-standard bits - and even if the images used by the current setup would be published they still rely on having a local clone of the app, which isn't how setup usually works) from what I can tell.

I haven't seen many devices that allow you to interact with CEC in such a way, so I'm very intrigued. kwikwai.com/products-2/?show-c

Looks like my light went out, so I could no longer send anything through the fiber...

The internet breaking is doing better this time than last time. At least this time it was only before a weekend and not before multiple holidays.
