Finally getting my NAS in order. Including some local services. I might have to rethink how to store time series data in my home LAN.

The case came out even better than I expected. The screws fit perfectly, but the buttons are a very tight fit — I will need more leeway in there. Also, I need to make the front plate thinner, so that the buttons stick out more. And to make room for the speaker, of course.

And it looks like this was fake news! Adam Słodowy is still alive and kicking!

I still appreciate very much everything he has done!

Adam Słodowy, the author of countless Polish TV programs and books about DIY, died at age 95. I was too young to watch his TV programs, but his books pretty much created my childhood. He will be missed.

Just implemented GIF decoding in pure Python. That was fun, and much simpler than I expected. Python's data types make this so much shorter, even if it's not optimal. Which doesn't matter at the sizes of images that will fit in memory on that device anyways.

Firefox admits they will eventually be sending all of your DNS to Cloudflare. Cloudflare will monetize your internet browsing, no matter how much their PR people say they are.

If you want to disable that, go to "about:config", and set "network.trr.mode" to 5.

The values are: 0 - default off, 1 - race, 2 TRR first, 3 TRR only, 4 shadow, 5 off by choice

Moving makes you throw a lot of thing out. I've learned more about sorting problematic garbage in the last 6 months than throughout the rest of my life.

I can't imagine how people handle that without cheap/free disposal co-founded by their municipality.
