I’ve named my digital sign for notifying my family of my work status (Do Not Disturb, Quiet Please, and Available) the “Daddyboard.” Today, I also spent a little time integrating it with Hammerspoon, so I can switch statuses with keyboard shortcuts. Lua FTW!
I now have a battery-powered, Wi-Fi connected, Siri-enabled digital status sign on my office door. I'll post some pictures, videos, and details later, but its pretty awesome to be able to say "Hey Siri, don't bother daddy!" 🙅🏻♂️
I do have a very old Amazon Fire tablet that we don’t use anymore now that the kids have iPads. Perhaps I could hack that up? Plugging it in to see what I can do... would be nice if I could jailbreak it...
I’m in the market for a battery-powered, Wi-Fi connected programmable sign. I want to attach it to my office door so that I can tell my family (well, mostly my kids) when its OK to enter, and when I need silence. Any ideas?
All of the sudden, when I join a Zoom with my XLR interface set as the audio input, people only hear me out of their left audio channel. This didn't used to happen, but either with a recent Zoom update, or with macOS Catalina, something changed. Any ideas?
Now that you’ve understood that feeling of shared fear, stress, and uncertainty, I’d encourage you to consider your situation. Imagine if your safety nets disappeared – money, expensive education, family name, etc. How does that shape your behavior?
Today was a day, y’all. My goodness. We’ve got a long road ahead. Everyone is impacted. Your friends, family, neighors, and strangers. No one is exempt. Now is a good time to understand the true power of empathy – everyone is feeling the way you are. Does that give you comfort?
A new rug arrives for my office tomorrow, but we still need to sort through some boxes that are cluttering up the space, and I’d like to add some art to the walls. Still, its a nice start, and I’ve gotta say, I am enjoying the IKEA/Sonos speakers 🥰
