I recently got a couple of Wifi controlled plugs, and flashed them to Tasmota firmware to make them locally-controllable. Instructions here:
Woo! F1 Quali's were super exciting this morning! Red Bull looks like they might have a seriously strong start to the year, although Checo getting knocked out was a bit sad.

I've been meaning to put my thoughts down on this topic for a while.
I want to say "thank you" to #Fosstodon. There are plenty of toots here which I strongly disagree with. But the bottom line is, that behind each of those toots is a good-hearted individual. So thank you, for being you.
As the year comes to a close, I wanted to take a moment to extend my appreciation to all of you for the good times and laughs, throughout 2020. She's been a hell of a year but, we made it. From loved ones lost to great successes, this year has been a wild roller coaster of a ride. Whether you're working or enjoying it with loved ones, I hope all of you enjoy bringing in the new year and do so, safely.
Thanks, again, for making Fosstodon such a fun atmosphere and great community.
