I’ve been reviving my GNU Emacs config as part of becoming a more active daily user. I typically use a macOS workstation, sometimes connecting to Linux machines (tramp/ssh). The release of Emacs 26.1 about a week ago gave me additional impetus to consume
Emacs’s customizable, extensible goodness.
I’ve been searching for a way to use CapsLock as another Control key on iOS for as long as there has been hardware keyboard support in iOS. (Emacs habits never die!)1 I have legacy USB and bluetooth keyboards that I’d like this to work with.
I needed to resurrect a kubernetes cluster that had been running for over four months straight. I tried using
conjure-up after my old
kargo) configs no longer worked. I got a
kubeadm kubernetes 1.10 deployment working quickly on an Ubuntu 18.04 (LTS) host.
Previously, I had setup HomeKit connecting to Nest thermostat and Belkin WeMo devices using Homebridge project. I had on my TODO list for a long time to put a webcam on HomeKit. At the end of some twists and turns it ended up being relatively easy, had I known the following from the start.
What to do with a Nest thermostat, Belkin WeMo smart switches and lights, web services, and custom home-grown sensors in an Apple household? Can HomeKit talk to non-HomeKit devices? An excellent project named Homebridge along with its user-provided plugins has the answers.
I have been using Raspberry Pis for quite some time. Some are IoT apps like sensor logging or Airplay speakers. I’ve also provided a box full in various hands-on demos in the community. Accumulating a large collection of late-model Raspberry Pi’s, I invested in ansible tasks to automate config and maintenance.
I needed a way to convert Latitude/Longitude coordinates between Degrees+Decimal to Degrees Minutes Seconds notation. I created some user functions within the excellent PCalc app that can do this inline in PCalc.
