Reminder to self: get less dependent on the various clouds

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/06/04

For my link archive: [WayBack] Grote Google-storing trof Gmail, YouTube en diensten van derden – IT Pro – Nieuws – Tweakers.

It has some interesting tips for IoT video doorbell products that are less depending on single-choice clouds:

Er bestaan er minimaal eentje; smart deurbel met camera en evt speaker, eigen intern netwerk, compatible met SIP (en video), zelf verantwoordelijk voor opnamen, etc. Enige nadeel is dan wel de prijs, het is een Duits kwaliteitsproduct, dus reken rond de 350 euro voor het absolute basismodel. Doorbird heet het; oa te koop bij Robbshop en CoolBlue of direct bij de fabiraknt’s website.

 

Je moet je huis flink geautomatiseerd hebben wil je echt nut van die api willen hebben.

als je alles zelf in de hand wil hebben doe je dat ook. Je zorgt er zelf voor dat je webinterface via een externe URL bereikbaar is en dan is het enkel je eigen hardware en internetverbindingen die als SPOF dienen en je kan dan ook makkelijker van solution-provider wisselen zonder vast te zitten.

 

wellicht is dit een oplossing voor jou?

Getting rid of trailing line-endings in the draw.io web interface

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/12/03

One of the things that bugged me for a long time is that every now and then for some shapes, when editing their text, the draw.io web interface puts in trailing line feeds after the text, messing up layout.

The easiest way to work around it is by searching inside the diagram XML for
"
, then replacing that with a ".

(the above code got screwed by WordPress.com saving it, so the search is in this small gist below)

This behaviour is intermittent on the drawio MacOS desktop app.

A while back, I needed to show the Teamup Calendar for my marching band at a specific date.

Luckily I found [Archive.isCalendar Link ParametersTeamup Calendar allowing me to assemble such link:

Which shows at the end of the month, we are going to perform on Tattoo on Stage in Luzern (Lucerne), Switzerland in the famous KKL concert hall:
