Trying out MapProxy as a tile server today, I want to pre-generate some tiles and see if it can be ran "offline" without a DB.

I created a MacOS widget for bersicht that displays Canadian weather radar:

github.com/openfirmware/canada

It auto-updates every 10 minutes, and can be edited for other locations, map styles, and radar types.

Hotline was late 90s/early 2000s combined newsreader, FTP server, and IRC server that you could join using the Hotline Client. You could also run your own server for free.

Carracho was a Mac-only clone that came out a bit later.

Thinking of running a Mastodon instance just to have a public photo feed without hogging all that disk space. Anyone try this already?

You used to have to call the movie theatre and listen to a pre-recorded message to find out what shows were playing and when.

Even when the web was getting popular, it took years before that information was published online.

I'm trying to figure out how to get the "last update" timestamp from the WMS, if it is available. It would also be nice to have a visible "storm track" to see which way the storms are moving.

This widget should work for Canada and the US (including Alaska and Hawaii), as the weather radar data covers both.

Alternatives to the OSM carto map style would probably look nice too.

I wanted a desktop widget with the local weather radar and GeekTool doesn't seem capable of what I want, so I am creating a widget for "bersicht" instead.

Here is a work-in-progress screenshot. It is loading weather radar data from Meteorological Services of Canada via WMS and draws that over a Leaflet map with OSM data.

Successfully created my own WiFi thermostat using ESPHome! I should probably solder it to a board and find a decent case. Also need to wire in the backup thermostat and write a blog post about it.

Somebody once told me
There's a statue in the Gobi
That's mostly gone from over the knees
Visage lying in the sand
With a sneer of cold command
Cuz the sculptor knew how to please

Well the years start coming and they don't stop coming
Empires falling and statues crumbling
Check out the words he left behind
On the statue in the desert that nobody can find:

Why did moving the mouse cursor cause Windows 95 to run more quickly? retrocomputing.stackexchange.c

"large applications that could take an hour to install could be reduced to 15 minutes with suitable mouse input."

I broke this little guy by trying to flash QMK firmware onto it. Wouldnt drop into DFU mode for dfu-util to reload the old firmware (under MacOS)

Trying to reload the firmware using bootmapper under Win10 DID work though, so I have saved it from becoming a key switch fidget toy.
