Hey there fediverse, whats your favorite #opensource alternative to Adobe Illustrator?
I think the coolest opportunity of it all is being able to use the connections I have with local non profits to make awesome solutions for people who need them.
I've already been looking at a Braille typing solution that should clock in under $100 a unit to help alleviate the struggles of the local visually impaired community.
After that, I intend to reboot the organization's efforts in making mouse solutions for quadriplegics at under $100 a unit.
I'll have to post pictures of my new office space at the #makerspace, but for now I need to get some life into the room.
It's white walls with a white floor, black filing cabinets, and a white florescent bulbs.
Once the #lasercutter is set up, I'm going to do me a cool "Admin Office: Warning, here be gremlins" sign.
Today, I started my first day as my local #makerspace administrator. I'll be doing everything from day to day operations and systems implementation all the way to programs development and event planning.
I'm super excited to get started, and I have a bagillion and a half ideas to get me going!
If I'm being honest, I'm pretty proud of this script.
By entering various input to STDIN during execution, the plot switches contexts on the next tick.
For example, "c" takes me to case temp, "C" takes me to CPUs, "h" takes me to my HDD, and so on.
Once I get around to writing some form of documentation, I open source it as I've seen a number of people who use the same tech stack to monitor their temperatures as well (minus the plotting stuff).
Due to a lack of decent remote system temp monitors (for #NextCloud), I wrote my own solution.
Depicted is the rising temperature of my case as it slides into its rack and settles in.
Total time to completion? 1 hour. God I love open source software...
After having my #NextCloud server up for a few days now, I really want to get a solid system info page set up for Admins.
The software anyway comes with RAM and disk monitoring, but i want more than that.
I need average CPU and core temp monitors. My server solution has hearing issues, and I need to ensure the drives don't run too hot.
I was having troubles uploading files to my #NextCloud instance, until I realized it would transfer better/faster if I did it on my internal network.
Switch to 172.16.xx.yy and voila, files transfer no problem xD.
So I've finally gotten around to hosting a #NextCloud instance, and I'm super hype about that.
It also represents my first successful docker host install, and I'm also very excited about that.
Good lord modern server side stuff is fun!
