Na migratie van XS4ALL naar KPN zijn al je telefoon-doorschakelingen weg: hoe dit te herstellen (spoiler: de on-line aanwijzingen kloppen niet)

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/09/02

In het kader van “kunnen dingen bij ons nooit eens normaal gaan?” het korte antwoord: nee.


Voor de migratie van XS4ALL naar KPN hadden diverse telefoondoorschakelingen in gebruik (met name vertraagd doorschakelen: individuele nummers in ons huishouden gingen vertraagd door naar de bijbehorende mobiele nummers).

Na de migratie waren die allemaal weg. Het duurde even voor we daarachter waren omdat sinds de corona-periode vrijwel altijd iemand thuis is.

Kort en goed: we kamen er dus achter toen er niemand thuis was en we een opmerking kregen onbereikbaar te zijn (door iemand die ons mobiele nummer niet had).

Herstellen was ingewikkelder dan bedacht, want als je deze voor de hand liggende stappen van XS4ALL en KPN volgt kom je met een kluitje in het riet terecht:

Make your Pi Zero into an OTG USB stick: Pi Zero USB Stem – KIT-14526 – SparkFun Electronics

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/08/24

Cool: [Wayback/] Pi Zero USB Stem – KIT-14526 – SparkFun Electronics

The Pi Zero USB Stem is a PCB kit that turns a Raspberry Pi Zero into a USB dongle. Once the Stem is installed, your Raspberry Pi can be plugged directly into a computer or USB hub without any additional cables or power supplies. The Raspberry Pi then acts as a USB device using its own Linux kernel gadget drivers to get started.

The Zero Stem is designed to be soldered directly to the USB SMD test pads on the bottom of the Raspberry Pi Zero, needing no wires or pogo pins at all, just solder and a soldering iron! Attaching the stem to your Pi also allows you to create a portable VNC server, or even cluster several Raspberry Pi Zeros with just a USB hub.

The Zero Stem is compatible with the Raspberry Pi Zero v1.3 and the Raspberry Pi Zero W v1.1, but unfortunately it is not compatible with the Raspberry Pi Zero v1.2 or any full-size Raspberry Pi due to their shapes and sizes.

Note: In order for your Pi Zero to function as a USB device with this Stem, you will need to configure it to act as one. You will be able to find these instructions in the Documentations tab under “How to OTG Fast“.

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/08/17

This is so cool!

[Wayback/] Eff-Uno Racer v1 by chrisbensen – Thingiverse

Welcome to the home for the things to print for the Eff-Uno Racer project ([Wayback/] Eff-Uno Racer is a LEGO© Open Wheel Race Car that you can build and remotely control. Most of it is made with LEGO© bricks but the motors are regular RC motors controlled by a Raspberry Pi and Arduino. Below are the extra parts needed.

The videos are via these three tweets:
