I'm back at blogging!

My last post:

Expect more of that (I hope with more quality, I'm trying!)


I have to do some digital cleaning because I store a lot of stuff I think I'm not going to read ever...


The tinfoil hat guy inside me is not thinking good about Mozilla and Firefox right now...

I started the project yesterday with a database I think it's good enough... So... It's called "simpletask" and it's to manage tasks, but much simpler than other apps (I think, at lease, for myself).

Code will be released when the project reaches a good enough v0.1 and a tiny documentation too.


I'm struggling with a new project because of the database design... And I'm a little bit afraid of releasing as FOSS in a future...

I take back my sarcastic jabs at @purism, though I stand by my statements against their PIA VPN integration. Packaging up free software under one brand is fine - if they respect the licenses and give credit to the authors. Supporting that software with upstreamed patches and financial contributions would be the classy thing to do.

I'm planning to make a small project and I forgot how to make relational database models 😂


If experience through time teaches something is that you should carry always a pen, *just in case*

Mozilla pays its CEO a 7 figure salary but it's moving to Discord's Recaptcha as a security model because it can't afford to hire anyone in all of Silicon Valley who knows how to set up SASL on an IRC server, or explain how IRC works without yelling "fuck" every other sentence.

There's a brand of sweets in Spain called Juanolas. They're made with licorice (or liquorice) and are pretty awesome.

I recently saw a new ones with peppermint. Holy cow, they're still awesome!

I prefer the classic ones mostly, but those are good too!

I just finished the Python controller (I plan to try Rust and replicate the same functionality, just for fun), and the Arduino code (very simple).

The next step is to bridge the router adapter and wire it to pass the control to the relay, so I can reset my router cutting the electricity directly (it's the only way).

Again, it's a nasty hack, but the only one I can do. Of course, out of context, this seems to be a little crazy, but in a blogpost I'll explain why I'm making this 🙂

Meanwhile, I have to hold the project until I buy the things I need :blobcoffee:

I need a bigger workshop. Or more table space. Or fewer projects

shit like DNS over HTTPS perfectly illustrates why the web was a mistake

I've been a few months without Internet getting down for some reason, but I'm going to fix it by using a relé and my Arduino..

It's a nasty hack, but my ISP doesn't offer me a solution and we cannot change from it, so...

As soon as I finish I'll write something in my blog :blobcoffee:

I didn't touch Android Studio and Android development so much, but Android Studio 3.4 looks amazing!
