I am somewhere between pleasantly shocked and mildly alarmed that the arduino sketch I wrote for the seeed wio link (which is now tracking the temperature in my study) appears to have compiled and uploaded - at least to the extent that it gets serial output - on this "Witty Cloud" esp12f module http://adityatannu.com/blog/post/2016/01/31/ESP8266-Witty-Cloud-Board-Demo.html

It doesn't seem to have come back properly from deep sleep, though. Maybe it doesn't have the RST pin wired the same way

Need to choose Lithium battery chemistry vs NiMH for an esp8266 project - I don't need the weight advantage and I quite like not having the battery burst into flame while charging it, but wondering if there's any significant environmental considerations to take into account. I know lithium mining's not pretty

I self-host my personal email. I increasingly wonder why, though, I get about one email every three days that isn't spam or marketing. Outside of work (separate account, separate computers) Fediverse/Forums/Whatsapp/Facebook/Twitter have between them supplanted email for almost all of my digital communications.

‪MNT Reform will be a test case for DIN SPEC 3015 (new open hardware standard) and we will work with Fairtronics to determine component fairness. Also looking into the Grüne Punkt as recycling program for the packaging‬

I had planned to spend 20 minutes this morning looking over my first attempt at writing a haskell program to implement the programming assessment task we use for interviewing candidates at $WORK

(Can tell you now, (a) I probably wouldn't have a job here if I'd attempted the task using Haskell, (b) not only did it take a very long time, it's not very Haskelly code either)

That was at 09:30 and I haven't actually started yet. When I got my laptop out of my locker I realised it's still on nixos 19.03 and I need to upgrade firefox before anything bad happens

Not done a whole lot of nixwrt implementation lately, but the next thing I want to do is make it talk to an actual ISP (PPPoE) and I can't exactly test that without unplugging the real router, which will make many (well, maybe about 4) people quite unhappy.

Or maybe I can, if I set up a stub ISP. Welcome to Nixwrt OnLine: https://github.com/telent/nixwrt/blob/master/nol.nix
