Sain vihdoin eilen käsiini tämän Cochlear implanteille tarkoitettu langaton induktio/TV-lähetin.

Kyseessä on kuulovammaisille tarkoitettu apuväline. Sen tarkoituksena on helpottaa TV lähetyksien kuuntelemista. Ääni tulee suoraan langattomasti televisiosta sisäkorvaistutteiden prosessoreihin. 🦻👌

@dcreemer@sfba.social avatar

@mustikkasoppa do you have a BlueTooth connection to your phone or computer? Do you find the TV streamer to be easier or better to use? Thanks!

I just unfollowed 80 dead accounts. Which sucks. Some of these folks I legitimately miss seeing on the Fediverse – but I don’t think they’re coming back.

Damn it. Now I need to find new friends. 😐

@dcreemer@sfba.social avatar

@atomicpoet is there any reason to unfollow the account, other than cleanliness?

Okay to all you people interested in home automation, I've got a loaded question for you. How would I go about being able to ask my Smart speaker whether it be Google or Amazon, what the temperature is in each room? I remember hearing that someone had this in their home, but Never heard how it was set up. Amazing what some blind people can accomplish, but I definitely wouldn't have a clue. There's not much that really interests me in a home automation, because I don't use lights most of the time, and I'm happy to play my music from my current sources, but I would have always loved to be able to get my Smart speakers to tell me the temperature of each room. Now that would be amazing! Would this be quite costly to do that sing alone? thank you very much in advance for any advice.

@dcreemer@sfba.social avatar

@Rachelk @Fragglemuppet the Apple HomePod and HomePod mini have temperature and humidity sensors. You can ask “Siri, what’s the temperature in the living room?” etc. I’m not sure about other devices

I need your help ❤️

Over 4-5 days new server- and media storage bills are coming in for this month

Currently I am still over €428 short this month😿😟

For upcoming weekend I have a server migration planned to scale down the costs by another €200 on the main servers but that will only take effect next month

If you can, please help out 🙏


Thank you ❤️

@dcreemer@sfba.social avatar

@stux sent a bit. Keep up the great work!

I have this blog set up and ready for writing using a bare, classic web stack with no framework, no static site generator, just html/css files and some short scripts in JS and OCaml.

The only thing I feel is missing is an RSS feed. Presently I am feeling very inclined to just rolling my own RSS using the very same stack (a text editor and scripts) instead of switching to some SSG just to get an RSS feed. Something tells me that this is a sinful, heretic thought.

Ideas welcome on how to avoid such heresy. Encouragement to just do it also welcome.

@jutty @stefano roll your own! Just check it with one or two RSS feed validators

Concept: An app that trolls your social media feed for links to videos and complies them into a playlist. (with the ability to set restrictions to exclude videos that are over/under various lengths.)

Concept2: A 'widget' box on mastodon's web app where part-time developers could put features such as the above. And a panel with an easy way to add widgets for nonprogrammer end users.

@dcreemer@sfba.social avatar

@futurebird Flipboard, connected to your Mastodon account can soft of do some of this.

Quoting from the #University of #Texas web site:

“We treat students, faculty and staff of all backgrounds with dignity. Different experiences and perspectives in our community matter, so we check in regularly, seeking input from all. We blend classroom rigor with meaningful out-of-class support in ways that have helped to make UT a national model.”

Empty words apparently, and referenced in an email I (an alum) sent protesting police presence and actions on campus.

Bye Ring! No more overpriced subscription

@timonus Thanks. I tried scrypted with my non HKSV devices and didn’t like the results… Hope to hear more


@dcreemer@sfba.social avatar

@timonus same. I think the ecosystem has lots of room for improvement :-)

@dcreemer@sfba.social avatar

@timonus yeah I used an RPi 4 for scrypted. I probably needed something more powerful.

@dcreemer@sfba.social avatar

Last week's @RATPAC panel had several memorable quotes that I really hope we follow up on.

The one about professional emergency services people avoiding people and actively discouraging incorporation of hams into plans was hard to hear.

There was a strong consensus that the way forward was "more training" and "appear professional". A quote was "don't show up (to volunteer) dressed like you live under a bridge".

@dcreemer@sfba.social avatar

@alper @abraxas3d @RATPAC this is a good essay. I especially liked this:

“From search and rescue perspective, any operative would jump to faster, dulplex-er, instant high bandwidth solution in a heartbeat. Emcomm/prepper type would not since the main purpose is not to solve the problem but solving the problem with specific tool that is emotionally being invested in.”
