A couple of videos I created on how to totally disable Web Notifications in Firefox and Chrome.
I wrote a quick and dirty little program for my mom to pause her show when she’s watching it on her computer. It’s a 30 min timer that resets every time you move the mouse or press a button. After 30 minutes of inactivity, it presses the spacebar key pausing the show. It can’t tell if your show is playing or not so it could start your show too. This is windows based only.
Well I’m still building this site. For some reason I decided I didn’t really like any of the themes that I seen on hugo. So I am making a custom theme while working on adding content to this site.
Few of them were close but seem more complicated to strip the parts I don’t want out than to just build one from scratch. Besides it’s a good time to practice my html and css which is rusty.
Go is quickly becoming my new favorite programming language. It has many awesome features. One of my favorite is how easy it is to make a executable that I can transfer over to a machine and run it. I’m not worrying about importing all the libraries onto the server. Just run it.
One thing that drives me nuts sometimes is you can’t have any unused variables or libraries. I know why and agree with it, but wow can it be annoying when testing code and setting things up.
While on my vacation I decided to build a bit of a security camera system with a raspberry pi. I used motionEyeOS.
I spent some time writing a script to send notifications to me with pushbullet. Due to some bushes setting the camera off every sec I don’t plan on using this script. This would be should be good for cameras aimed inside or static place.
Anyway, I thought this might be useful to someone.
