A Case Study in Not Being A Jerk in Open Source – Kevlin Henney – Google+

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/09/28

Comments on [WayBack] A Case Study in Not Being A Jerk in Open Source – Kevlin Henney – Google+:

  • Ever notice that a lot of the people that can make big things happen can also be jerks sometimes? Torvalds, Gates, Ellison, Jobs, McNealy, Musk.
  • Jeroen Wiert Pluimers

    +Kevin Powick yup. Maybe we need to learn to live with it.

    At the current client I explained the teams that sometimes I do stupid things, both in code and in communications, and I expect them to tell me about them, just like I am telling them they do stupid things. Of course making compliments both ways work in a similar fashion.

    We Dutch are accustomed to make compliments, so I am trying to break them out of the “Doe maar gewoon, dat is al gek genoeg”, as they already create very good stuff, but both they and I are convinced together we can take that to a next level.

    Last week I did my first “Jeroen’s demo hour” showing stuff that happened in their development cycle over the last two weeks.

    Somewhere in the first third was “look here: you see artifacts of some re-use by copy actions; it can be dangerous, just look at this obscure unnoticed bug. I need to watch myself, because sometimes I do this too”, and in the final 10 minutes while demoing some C# code – which is new to them – “look at this variable: it has the wrong name because I copy-pasted it, so if you review my code, just let me know how had this is”.

Maybe time to include some code review examples in a conference session topic…

On my research list: ZNC – advanced IRC bouncer

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/09/28

ZNC, an advanced IRC bouncer that is left connected so an IRC client can disconnect/reconnect without losing the chat session. Feel free to update pages which you think are improvable and don’t hesitate to ask for help.

Notes on recording audio calls from a Fritz!Box and playing back those captures calls

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/09/28

A while ago, I documented some links for In case I ever need to record calls on my Fritz!Box devices.

By now, I’ve done a bit more investigation: I’ve enabled the call monitor, did some port scans, installed domoticz and got deeper into fritzcap.

Oh and I got packet capturing to work too: Fritz!Box – capture network packets in Wireshark format or ISDN in dtrace format.

A small recap so I don’t forget what I did and what the effects were.

Enabling CallMonitor

[WayBackFritzbox – Domoticz showed how to enable the CallMonitor option in your Fritz!Box

  • Dial #96*5* to enable (response “CallMonitor On”)
  • Dial #96*4* to disable (response “CallMonitor Off”)
  • It seems not possible to ask for the current state (enabled/disabled)
  • After it is enabled, the TCP port 1012 on your Fritz!Box is available for tools like [WayBackDomoticz and fritzcap.
