If you spend any time in b2b emails, you will probably be familiar with a green "Please consider the environment before printing this email" in signatures. Today we received an email with something like "Feel free to print this email, paper is biodegradable and employs USA workers". It will surprise no one that this email came from Texas.

Wer sagt eigentlich, dass man im Winter nicht grillt? 😁

That's it for the first ideas.

More to come soon :)

You will just need to join the ESPs wifi via an QR-Code on the box.

Then access the the local communication webapp served by the ESP, using another QR-Code on the box.

Unfortunately, vacation is over so there is not so much spare time to tinker with electronics projects.

Nevertheless, I turned on the ignition for a new project I call \o/

With OffgridLoraCom you can use your smartphone to communicate with other users in your range, independently from mobile service and internet.

Was mir bei gerade noch mehr Stirnrunzeln erzeugt ist, dass sie eine wichtige Passage in ihrem Paper über die End-2-End-Encryption entfernt haben.

Die Aussage, dass die WhatsApp Server zu keinem Zeitpunkt Zugriff auf die privaten Schlüssel der Nutzer haben, wurde entfernt.

Switching to Brave browser the KeePassXC integration was the last thing not working for me.

MacOS Big Sur, Brave Browser

There seems to be a bug in Brave that requires you to choose "Google Chrome" in KeePassXC for browser integration.

That made it work for me :)

Yesterday I built this cute 433MHz Replay Tool :)

It listens on 433MHz for commands sent to outlets or lights and records them for replaying.

Absolutely great to find out the codes most cheap remotes send out!

Here we are on v3.3.0 👋

(With a bit of delay :D )

Still confused why seems to be the main alternative promoted in the current thing 🤷🏼‍♂️

What about ?

- Now completely open source
- Proven security
- Independent from phone number (!)

Is it still that people refuse to pay some cents (!) for an app? That‘d be rediculous 🤦🏼‍♂️

"i use linux as my operating system," i state proudly to the unkempt, bearded man. he swivels around in his desk chair with a devilish gleam in his eyes, ready to mansplain with extreme precision.
"actually," he says with a grin, "linux is just the kernel. you use GNU+linux."
i don't miss a beat and reply with a smirk, "i use alpine, a distro that doesn't include the GNU coreutils, or any other GNU code. it's linux, but it's not GNU+linux."

the smile quickly drops from the man's face. his body begins convulsing and he foams at the mouth as he drop to the floor with a sickly thud. as he writhes around he screams "I-IT WAS COMPILED WITH GCC! THAT MEANS IT'S STILL GNU!"
coolly, i reply "if windows was compiled with gcc, would that make it GNU?" i interrupt his response with "and work is being made on the kernel to make it more compiler-agnostic. even if you were correct, you won't be for long."

with a sickly wheeze, the last of the man's life is ejected from his body. he lies on the floor, cold and limp. i've womansplained him to death.

Zum Salvation-Finale:


So eine mega Serie und dann so ein Humbug in der letzten Folge?

Ich fass es nicht!!

Next step: Try syncing my devices in

Ich werde die Videos so lange es geht auf meinem IPFS-Node hosten, hoffe aber natürlich, dass sich die Last schnell verteilen wird ;)
