Anyone here into automating food production? I just finished up a practical 3D printed prototype of a mediumless microgreen grow bed. It’s all open source and up at and I could use help. I am getting ready to scale things up.

Just removed my nest thermostat and added a hestiapi. Not sure how I feel about openHAB though. Home Assistant feels so much better. Either way better then google and it’s open source! :D

Not going to lie I am low key supper proud of these 3D printed component holders. Taking all the DIY crap I have laying around and putting it together feels amazing.

Anyone have experience with emacs org-mode? I am looking to migrate away from OmniFocus. I ideally want to use a GTD workflow.

BSD on desktop people. Why do you prefer using BSD on your desktop or laptop? I tried this but outside of a VM hardware compatibility was horrific and UI tools where less then elegant. Is there something I am missing?

the fact older people lean right does not mean we get more conservative as we get older. it means old people suck.

Well this is sad. :( I’m not British but I am sorry for your loss.

Grow bed v0.0.17 now in testing. If the basic spacer stops root clogging I think we should be good to work on automated harvesting. 😎 (PS pressurized water inlet does not scale 1to1 with gravity drainage hole size.)

I moved to just using exposed copper wire. Makes for a MUCH easier solder job. (At least I think so with my noob solder skills)

Just finished the new and improved lighting rig for the automated food production. With this and the beta anti root clog system I should have version 0.0.15 up and growing.

Seriously fuck wifis with the fucking internal login page

One of the few things I don’t like about being in Germany. Paying €4 for this.

Just designed some basic 3D printed + printer paper shoji inspired window blinds / privacy guards. Lots of screws but pretty cool I think. Does anyone think there might be an interest if I put out a tool that spat out some custom .stl files depending on the area you want to cover? Maybe sell them on Etsy if people don’t want to print them themselves? Thoughts?

This is officially the best graphic that explains how works.

Does anyone else have mixed feelings about ZFS? It’s pretty amazing and is basically a better version of btrfs, but at the same time it has an angling license and was hacked (questionably) into the Linux kernel. I want btrfs raid2 to not make me nervous. :(

I always feel awkward about gendered award shows, while at the same time being deeply bitter about not making the list 😅
