I think this weekend is the one where I scrap my ad-hoc #homeassistant config, and redo it "properly".
This realisation is mostly brought to you by me leaving the flat last night, hitting the zigbee button by the door to turn off all the lights and music, and then having to press it again as the hall light came on when I opened the door, because it was after sunset and all of the lights were off...
longish #introductions toot
#London UK based human-shaped computerist (he/him), by day I pay the bills by turning things off and on again (these days redeploying containers and removing old ones), by night I do more computery things, play with the likes of docker/kubernetes/other #homelab type things
I'm also mess around with various #electronics and #amateurradio things, and have recently started messing around with #homeautomation using #homeassistant, and assembling my stash of #retrocomputer kits (#altairduino, #rc2014, #pidp8 and #pidp11 )
Watcher of too much tv, reader of not enough books, listener of a reaosnable number of podcasts, lefty, poly, bi, considers the letters SJW a compliment not an insult, happy to use my white-cis-male-privilege to act the snowflake and do my best to call people out when they deserve it.
As a professional computerist, I figure it's only right to make my first post here on hackers.town an admission that I've just spent two hours trying to get access to some raspberrys pi on my home network, including all sorts of messing around with my firewall.
I fixed this lack of access by not using a shell on my remote VPS.
Yup, I do this stuff for a living too...
A bunch of technomancers in the fediverse. Keep it fairly clean please. This arcology is for all who wash up upon it's digital shore.
