Day 59: We finished up the app, adding a way to set a nickname for your devices. We made an authentication system similar to notification 2fa, where if a nickname is already claimed, you can request to also use that nickname. Then you have to approve the request on the device that is assigned that name, proving that you own that device/name. We won "best domain name" for and our prize was backpacks! :)

Day 31: I played around with's tardigate system, which is decentralized encrypted cloud storage. Pretty awesome stuff - in the long term, I plan to migrate my instance to it!

Day 11: I updated to version 15 😃 and attempted to root my phone. I ran into a problem where fastboot could not detect the device, so I'll do some reading and try again tomorrow.

Day 4: I deployed a instance to ! I was not able to expose it to the external network yet but I opened up the page in links, the command line browser. Big thanks to andremotz on github for the premade yaml files:
