My October ‘21 in Review

Published on in ✍️ Posts

The end of the year is approaching and another month is over. With the end of October and today’s time change - which I had briefly forgotten this morning for inexplicable reasons - but already comes a bit of the winter feeling. The last weeks it was sometimes unusually warm, but now the cold season is just around the corner.

(Smart Home) Automation with Node-RED

Published on in ✍️ Posts

Yesterday I expanded the memory in my home and code server to 16 GB and wondered what I could do with all the resources this server provides me. So I looked around a bit and came across an open source program called Node-RED. Especially in the context of Smart Home and Home Assistant, I’ve heard about it a few times, but never looked into this software in more detail.

I recently wrote about that my Raspberry Pi now has an SSD. With this, the Pi now runs quite fast and I also no longer have any concerns if I ever install something that also stores data. I even wrote in the last paragraph that I now want to get a bit involved with smart home.

Published on in ✍️ Posts

Welcome to Monthly Review number 10. Yes, October is also over now and I almost forgot to write this review, even though I knew that today is Reformation Day and Halloween and tomorrow we will be in the month of November. Whether it is a good or bad thing that 2020 is slowly coming to an end remains to be seen.

I recently took a closer look at Cloudflare’s new project Radar. Besides statistics about internet usage, attacks and popular domains, the site also shows statistics about the market shares of browsers.

Windows: External Storages and File Systems

Published on in ✍️ Posts

Yesterday I ordered an external SSD to have a bit more storage on the go when using my Surface Go, but also to exchange files between my devices (it has an USB C cable, so it should even work with my phone). I have a huge (4TB) external HDD already, but that needs more power than what comes out of the USB C port on the Surface, so when I want to use that, I have to use a charging cable and that’s suboptimal.
