I want to measure my power consumption with the helpt of our "old" Ferraris electric meter. I found several solutions with Arduino and Raspbery Pi on the internet. But I have a more fundamental problem: Who do I provide the power for the Arduino or Raspberry? There is no power plug close by. So what solution is possible which can be removed if I move out of my rented apartment? I have no fear of electronic consturctions but no clue what is possible.

I am somebody who has to learn to say "no". I am getting better every month. 馃槉

Shit, I had configured my certbot to only check once a month for certificates renewal what led to expiration on my mastodon instance. Once a month is not frequent enough and certbot does only renew certificates which are due to renewal. Lesson learned. 馃槥

Has somebody of you knowledge about VPN and computer compliance? We are discussing this at our company and we would be happy if employees only can grant access via VPN if for example windows updates are up2date, defender is running, and a few things more.

Laravel is a cool Framework. It is amazing how fast for example you can create a basic blog with it.

Is there something like Sport-Tracking as ? Or could that be a great new project garnished with ActivityPub for Federation?

Watching some YouTube-Videos to know how to replace my crankset with a new One. Just waiting for the postmail delivering the crank puller. (Waiting pays out, crank puller on the internet: 4 Euro, on local store: 13 Euro).

Has anybody of you changed a yellow Power Jack of a Lenovo ? Are they different in some Models?

Air conditioning for our server room (or do you say comms room?) is not that easy topic as I thought. The room should be cooled. That's it, I thought.

Does anybody have a link (book/video tutorial) recommendation for learning where you use multiple virtual machines and do not use DevStack? It seems to mee that this isn't the best learning environment as I have to extend an existing cloud with additional compute nodes...

I have calculated my average data usage and it is about 1,7 Gigabyte in a month. So as my mobile contract ends in one month, my new Contract only contains 2GB data instead of 4GB.

(Yes Germany is one of the most expensive countries in Europe or more specific our mobile providers are the most grasping Ones regarding Europe)

The main problem with Github being bought by Microsoft isn't MS.

It's that in 2018 we still haven't learned that critical infrastructure shouldn't belong to one company ... and that we should avoid building single points of failure.

Is there already such a Thing like a federated Gitlab or better something which is Free Software?

I realized that I never wrote my #introductions, so here it goes.

I'm a Python programmer working on open source. After hours I do whatever is my current obsession, so far I have gone through: #wiki, #drawing, #typography, #roguelike #gamedev, #pygame, miniature #painting, #tinwhistle and #ocarina music, #arduino, walking #robots, #rcheli, #electronics, #microbit, #micropython, #circuitpython, homebrew game handhelds.

I love #scifi #books and #manga (no patience to watch tv/shows).

Pursuit of Happiness. Something I have to remind myself of. What makes you happy? 馃槉

BTW: The movie is worth seeing. 馃槈

What would you say: Build your own Temperatur Measurment with an Raspberry Pi for the server room, buy a smart home solution or an expensive IP Thermometer?

Forgot to drink enough what welcomed headache. Silly me.
