Finished my condo Ethernet wiring a week ago. Im happy with being able to shove this stuff in a crawlspace and be out of sight.

Now I have four large drywall holes to fix

I've been pronouncing it "eff-stab" in my head for years and only recently realized it's "eff-ess-tab"

Hmm, I sure have a lot of side projects I want to finish and maybe blog about.

my brain: let's rewire the condo with ethernet instead

I just love logging in. Entering passwords every hour forever is the best. Having to enter a code emailed to me? Nothing better.

Did you know? Sending JSON to API Gateway with the former character without specifying the charset in the Content-Type will result in the latter character being sent to upstream servers!

hard-coding my AMI IDs to prevent terraform from blowing away completely fine instances.

devops is so much extra work

Poor quality glue on this steel series mouse, the thumb pads have been loose for over a year. After using superglue to put them back on, they are sticking but the side buttons are weird now. :AngeryCat:

Going to recycle this junk and go back to the G5 I kept in storage. Ill keep looking for an ambidextrous mouse that is properly made.

Is the new M1 MacBook Air also fast at switching resolutions on an external 2K display? YES.

Switching refresh rate? Takes a few seconds.

(This is the base model MBA with no upgrades.)

For some reason Safari 13 will reset my local settings for devdocs.io every few days. Doesn't happen in FireFox 83. 仄

WTB: ban on auto-generated "comparison" websites that stuff up search results

how did I end up with thirty pillowcases?? Why did all the old bedding textiles end up at my place? These need to be donated or recycled

Wiring up some smart switches and I am having more fun drawing wiring diagrams.

Would have been nice to have neutral available in all the boxes but that wasnt required when this place was wired. (Alberta)

I've noticed myself gravitating towards .ca domains in search results because they usually aren't blogspam

Here is an early preview of an ESP8266 dev board driving the G-35 lights set using one of the sample Arduino G-35 programs. Looks promising for being powered off the 5V pin.

It's that time of year, where I drag out the xmas lights and try to automate them somehow.

This year I have new plans, now that I know how to use ESP8266/ESP32 boards. I hope to be able to auto-schedule lights, and maybe even rewrite light display programs.

Adding QMK support to the pre-QMK YMD09 board

github.com/qmk/qmk_firmware/pu

I was surprised how well this worked, and once I got the RGB working it was time to clean it up for a pull request!

I am new to QMK but I think it should be much more customizable than Bootmapper, especially in regards to RGB control.

how long until the stereotypical "hailing a taxi" works anywhere with AR?
