fischertechnik launched the smart home kit last year. A very good move on a conceptual level. Smart home and IoT (internet of things) are rapidly growing technology sectors. The unique placement of the TXT allows it to be a perfect introductory platform to this world. However, the smart home platform from fischertechnik relies on a …

Developers like to help other developers. Many times via text chats like IRC, Slack, Gitter or Discord. This article is mainly aimed at developers asking for help. However it can also be applied to other situations, even if the concepts don’t fully apply. Now for the short overview for the very impatient, though especially those …
Emotes are a very important feature of Twitch chat culture. Because of this, there aren’t just emotes you get from subscribing to broadcasters, but also extensions like BetterTTV and FrankerFaceZ that add more emotes to be used in Twitch chat. Many broadcasters have an image in their panels showing the emotes that are available for …
Bot Land is a browser-based game that is still in development. You can learn more at https://bot.land. I streamed creating this tier list. You can watch the VOD of it on YouTube: https://youtu.be/F-PUJEErrQA Attack/Offense Vanilla Lasers Pros Blind fire Cons Countered by reflect Not a good secondary weapon Attacking Any defense that doesn’t reflect they’re …
Most browser extensions do a thing. And they do that thing in their isolated little world. Many of them do their thing pretty well. Many of them are built to do many things. Many of them are built to do just one little thing. But only few of them talk to other extensions to do …
In early 2016 the Swiss Mozilla Community met up to discuss goals and community structure. During a discussion on the state of our Twitter account @MozillaCH I pitched the idea of having a tool to manage content like replies with contributors instead of just people with direct access to the account.
It’s been quite a while since I last posted on here, and interestingly about the same topic: code coverage analysis in Firefox extensions. And since then Firefox has gotten a completely new extension system. I’ve been really busy porting my extensions and not writing blog posts. The add-on SDK conveniently came with a test runner …
Code coverage statistics are very useful. They tell you how much of your code never gets executed during the unit tests. So you always know what to write unit tests for, because 100% coverage doesn’t exist. And sometimes you can’t cover all code. That’s why normally you are happy, if the coverage is above a …
Recently Mozilla restricted access to ftp.mozilla.org, instead you can download nightlies from archive.mozilla.org. Sadly this broke existing methods to download Firefox nightly for automated unit tests on Travis CI. I’ve written a node module, that takes care of downloading nightly versions of Firefox desktop and Android.
Windows ist leider sehr stur, welche Ordner man zu Windows Bibliotheken hinzufügen kann und welche nicht. Wenn ein Ordner nicht indiziert ist, muss er lokal synchronisiert werden und die lokale Kopie kann dann in die Bibliothek aufgenommen werden. Aber das ist ja je nach dem nicht das Ziel der Sache. Unter Windows 8 nutzen die …
I have to admit, luckily software integration tests usually don't take three hours to have a result. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CIsx5izE170
I love that optional permissions are user-controllable in Firefox 84.
Upscaling about two hours of video for fun. I guess I won't really need to heat my place for a couple of days.
I always feel bad when someone that is new to a technology asks a very specific question about what the better approach is and the proper answer in short is "depends". It mostly tells them that they haven't learned enough yet and need to learn more, instead of giving them the reward of having understood part of what they're trying to understand.
https://github.com/SimonBrazell/privacy-redirect is a pretty neat extension. I also have UntrackMe on my phone for similar purposes.
Finally switched from a Broadcom based WiFi card to an Intel one. So much sudden stability.
@e_mydata I'm seeing eOS 0.11 (from the 28th of August) as update to my Fairphone 3 on 0.10. I assume that update is Android 10. However the update fails to apply.
@glow I agree about the fonts part, but font awesome also does SVG based icons and I don't think their icons are inherently bad, it's just that we should avoid icon fonts (see also https://cloudfour.com/thinks/seriously-dont-use-icon-fonts/ for the complete argument made 5 years ago already...)
@glow we're still doing full versions? I thought there are just loose sets of things that engines implement. ("Living standards")
The vikunja Todoist migration ran through and worked almost perfectly. I had to manually clean up some task parent-child relationships and transfer over my repeat rules. But apart from that I'm very happy with vikunja. Big thanks to the maintainer, who was very responsive in the matrix room of the project.
- I moved Synapse over to my NAS and started using Element web via Nextcloud app
- I set up auto-invite-matrix-bot for accounts I have on other matrix homeservers
- I switched to Wallabag from Pocket
- I configured dnscrypt-proxy so everything gets to use better DNS from inside my network
- I started configuring Vikunja to take over from Todoist and my shopping list, however the Todoist migration is currently broken with my Todoist data, so it's on hold for a bit.
@bindermichi und yt stories!
@Zisteau I'm afraid to check if it's a valid barcode.
@rueetschli @heiseonline ja, oder dezentralisierte system wie openPGP, teilen da alle implementationen denselben schlüssel...?
@swisspost was vorallem verunsichert, ist dass ich nirgends den Status der Bezahlung einsehen kann (habe eine Packetettickette bezahlt)
Die Webseite der @swisspost ist toll. "Diese Seite kann nicht angezeigt werden" nach Bezahlung und der Link zur Hilfe führt zu "The provided host name is not valid for this server." (https://t.co/hiUO2JKWiE)

@gsagt ah, die deployments sind gar nicht im readme. Gebaut habe ich es urpsrünglich für https://t.co/xrawCb1HkC, wobei es auch bei https://t.co/miZRLgaRAN aktiver genutzt wird und zeitenweise bei https://t.co/jXKjLB12z2 im einsatz war.
@gsagt eigentlich schon, aber ich will es als github actions umbauen, und das ist halt viel neubau... Und habe noch jede menge anderes, was ich um und neu bauen will...
@gsagt hatte mal https://t.co/CCddVdragD geschrieben. Hat schon pänger keine updates mehr erhalten, da ich die architektur ändern will...
Das ist vorsichtig formuliert für "wir müssen jetzt rauf weil der eine ROV ein Leck hat" https://t.co/0a3ADc5vcz
@hankgreen it was pretty good, but I felt like the ending missed a trick.
@AmandaHasPandas Hi Amanda, letting you know that your gmail inbox is full, so sadly my reply to your question regarding the Twitch Emotes extension couldn't be delivered. Though it seems in the meantime the extension is working for your channel :)

@swissspidy the bit I'm somehow missing is how it makes it better for everyone.
