Eddie_lomax Any suggestions on how to start cobbling together a Smart Home(tm)? I have a Nest, and want to get a front door lock, some lights, and maybe Alexa or Google Home, but am admittedly a little creeped out by the constant listening from Amazon or Google.
Kodo I got google mesh wifi it is supposed to integrate directly with smart home stuff in the future
☕ David Antoine Yes, saw S01, I'm watching S02 (mid-season). I like it a lot though I think Battlestar Galactica (2004-2009) is better. It's well done and I like the fact that it stays around the solar system, with a more "grounded" political intrigue... I didn't read the books. There is also Dark Matter, it's nice as well, it reminds me a little bit of Firefly. Those are my three favorite in space Sci-Fi TV shows... For now.
Bugabinga I did the same. Then I realised the only game I like is StarCraft 2. No sc2 on Linux. FML.
Etc It's fun to use bright yellow $10 earmuffs instead of something like bose - works better & looks awesome
Randoming I have one Windows 10 machine and it's literally nothing more than a Steam client but I think this might be enough to push me to tolerate Steam on Linux and try support the devs porting to Linux. I'm not too worried about Microsoft knowing my crappy Dirt Rally times and more to do with not supporting/tolerating such a clear breach of privacy. I mean, remote code execution... theregister.co.uk/...
😀 Tom Always submit (reasonable) feedback; you never know. I submitted a feature request to Google's Authenticator app, and it was implemented in the following update. I also submitted a feature request for my bank's app when I was on the phone with them, and they forwarded the reqest and it too was added to the app.
Etc So far finding Phoenix substantially more manageable than rails but still a bit automagic
Bugabinga How much effort do other IT professionals spend on their own home network infrastructure? As a developer, I roughly know what *should* be done, but find it mostly overwhelming in terms of time and effort.
Paul Webb Haha! That would be neat.
Martijn I never understood why ActivityStreams would be good for websites to have, when AS isn't conveyed in HTML. I write a lot of the HTML on my blog by hand (so I can fuss over every little semantic detail of a blockquote) and it is just way easier to throw in some microformats that make the feed parsable then to make sure some secondary JSON/ATOM format comes into existence.
