Livestream of the CGPM open session to consider the revision of the SI and the redefinition of the kilogram is now starting:

Things my credit card balance didn't need today: A new raspberry pi...
Performance and wifi of the 3B+ in the form factor of an A?
Must have...

Further adventures in overcomplicating my home network: Moving the wifi to a separate vlan/subnet cut me off from my Sonos.
I have a choice of figuring out what to relay between subnets, or just chucking the sonos switchport into the wifi vlan.
I'll give you one guess which option I took, although I suspect you don't need me to confirm ;-)

I've been doing so well at avoiding throwing my money at humble bundle, but now they have released a bundle, and my reaction is basically "insta-click".
SteamLibrary++ I guess...

Ticking over my home network stuff whilst I work, and have come to the conclusion that for my "don't trust these wifi lightbulbs" network, the VLAN ID should definitely be 107, because that's the incredibly obvious option for an IOT network.

Applied the next step of my "stupidly over-complicated home network" and moved my wifi to it's own VLAN. I'm still online*. It's almost like I know what I'm doing, or something ;-)

*technically "back online after remembering to remove strange default routes, and also add _some_ firewall rules to the new interface in pfsense", but that's close enough...

Insomnia has been kicking my butt this week, to the point where I'm trying no caffeine today in the hope of sleep later.
Tiredness and lack of stimulant means I've just fat-fingered my way into an interview question, and have created a file in my home directory called ~?
I'll leave that until Monday before attempting to delete it ;-)

Are there are cross-platform* screenshot tools which will prompt for a filename, then upload to your own destination?

Taking screenshots, renaming them, and manually uploading them to my web server is becoming a chore.

*(at a minimum, I'm hoping for macos and windows, bonus platforms are android, linux, ios in that order or preference)

1: acquire pager βœ”οΈ
2: buy yellow spray paint
3: ???
4: Hack the planet!

Finally got around to attempting to fix my old HDD enclosure. The old dead capacitors came off without problem, but the little voltage regulator chip had overheated so badly that the PCB underneath was completely destroyed.
Sadly beyond my ability to fix, so onwards to the more fun projects. My future involves an Altair-duino, and PiDP 8 and 11, as well as the finishing touches on my RC2014.

Extracting your data from Untappd

I rate every pint I taste using the Untappd app. Think of it like TripAdvisor for lager, stout, cider, bitter, and all manner of other beery goodness. Seriously, I've reviewed over 600 different drinks Recently, I decided to see if I could self-host my beer check-ins. The first step - extracting my own data from…[...]

Oh come on homebrew, where's your sense of adventure...

Because nothing says "home network" like massively over-complicated setups ;-)

I finally got around to installing the unifi controller and moving my AC-lite access point over to than from the previous "set up once long ago using the android app" setup.

Already loving the dashboard, but I guess it's time now to properly plan things like my guest wifi, and start planning out my VLANs

This. Apart from the general 'complete and utter clusterfuck' that is, what are they currently trying to distract us from?
RT The most sensible stance I've seen on - it's a shiny trinket to distract from something more important about Brexit they don't want to discuss. A bauble to please pro Brexit citizens who readily consume regalia.


No spam ever, they said. I've never signed up to them, or even heard of them, but they just spammed my work email address to try and hawk their product. That'll be an automatic no from me forever then.
RT Sign up for the VividCortex newsletter! No spam, ever. We promise.


A little snakeknot paracord action on the new knife to improve the balance/make it easier to find. Decided not to go with the plain green cord ;-)

RT Max Headroom interviewing Rutger Hauer about Blade Runner may be the most cyberpunk thing ever.


RT Officers, I swear it wasn't me.
As you can see, I was in New York.
To the hardworking Blackpool Police, good luck with the investigation.
