Just wrapped up a clean install on an old Odroid XU3 in preparation to throw an MQTT broker on there and experiment with piping various bits radio data to it.

Thinking Zigbee, 433Mhz OOK, APRS, and ADS-B.

@Tayo For sure! I'd love to take that thing apart and see what they have going on in there.

Apparently it was time for a refresher on sorting algorithms and European folk dance.


@brandon I just think its a fun piece of 90's nostalgia, has a wacky cast, and highlights things like social engineering along with all the magic hacking tech. I also like to think its what 90's mainstream pictured when they heard about something like L0pht.

@brandon WarGames, probably followed by Sneakers.

@redandgreen14 I'm most interested in DNS over HTTPS (andTLS) along with DNSCrypt. I'm also curious about configurations per client and how they are handling that.

I've been considering replacing PiHole with AdGuardHome. I've been using PiHole for a couple years now and I've loved it, but AdGuard seems more feature rich and flexible.

I stumbled on The Open Book Project a while back. The project goal is to arrive at a simple, open source, DIY e-reader. It's still a work in progress, but it has been fascinating to follow along.


@paretech Still getting used to the ortholinear layout, but its nice overall.

@rmgr My brain is hurting trying to relearn years of muscle memory, but I already see the benefits of the layout. I love how easy it is to remap things and zero in on an ideal setup.

Dactyls look so cool! If you wind up giving it a shot post some pics!

@Tayo I know the feeling. I've got quite a few of those too.

@ieure Ooo that's really slick! I especially like the wooden case.
