Those last two episodes of Stranger Things were wild. The scene featuring Master of Puppets was amazing! S4 impressed, and they’ve set up quite a final season with the ending.
Making progress on my latest IoT project, which will let me control the RGB LED pool lamp I recently installed. It's controlled by an RF remote. I am using a Raspberry Pi and an RF transmitter and receiver, and some custom Python code. Hoping to finish this weekend! 🤓
Next I want to do something more ambitious. My goal would be to transform a retro 80s/90s tiny PC into a "cyberdeck" with a touchscreen, running Linux or Android. Candidates - Atari Portfolio, HP Jornada, Psion Series 5, Sharp PC-3000, IBM PalmTop PC 110. Suggestions?
So close to being a perfect race for Ferrari. Gutted for Carlos, but awesome to see Charles have a great race for the first time in months. P1 over Max in his house. If only Carlos could have grabbed P2! 🏎
Update on my IoT project – the common RF transmitter modules for the Raspberry Pi just don’t have the “oomph” to control my pool light. Moving on to hacking a Sonoff RF Bridge as an alternative…
Seasoning up the new griddle in preparation for its maiden voyage this weekend. 🔥💨
Ms. Marvel? Nearly perfect. That is all.
Does anyone else find it irritating that mainstream podcasts don’t know what chapters are? Beautifully produced podcasts with no chapters. Why? Just why?!
What We Do in the Shadows is back, and the creature that crawled out of the body of Colin Robinson is my favorite little sidekick since Baby Yoda.
Finally got around to setting up my audiobook library in Plex. I now have automatic conversion/merging from MP3 to M4B, automatic tagging, and metadata/artwork download. Plus, an awesome iOS client. Whee!
I purchased some Zygo Solo headphones to use in the pool a few months ago, and they’re life changing. Late night podcast listening while floating in the water? 🧑🍳💋
