Apple iOS Users: Update to 14.7 quickly. Security fixes are not publically disclosed yet, but I smell relevance.

After my first MythTV install in 2007, i dreamt about how cool it would be to stream the data from my home to anywhere I am, giving me a 100% "tracking free" way to watch TV. Today, this dream turned reality. I watched TV streamed from my home Sat dish -> Raspberry -> MythTV -> VPN -> Client, all while on a 300km/h fast ICE train - over their onboard WIFI - and it just worked. So liberating, a nerd dream come true! Hotel TV and surveillance streaming go home, i have MythTV and a 20TB NAS. :)

This madness with objecting to legitimate interest must stop. It takes short of 100 clicks to opt out of tracking on e.g. - is there an open source tool / browser extension to automate this? (Gasp, iOS?)

sorry for recent disruption of my public facing services. Lots of hammering these days, time to tighten your SNORT ruleset.

PSA: Did you patch your Linux recently?

So far, i am impressed with Zoneminder (Open source Video Surveillance system). Needs some sysadmin skill to get up and running, but i have motion detection + iOS push notification working with multiple camera feeds.
Next: near-realtime face /object detect with ML TPU dongles like Google Coral. Endless possibilities. zmeventnotification.readthedoc
I may need to try this.

Nasty Linux systemd root level security bug revealed and patched. If you're running most recent Linux distributions, you'll need to patch it now.

Playing with Zoneminder surveillance system. Pretty cool, though the Perl setup feels a bit "vintage" :-)

got my FM-Towns Marty console up and running loading CD-Rs, but struggling to find any info about the keyboard connector... seems i cannot run Wing Commander without a connected keyboard... and original keyboard is super expensive. Anyone know if a PS2 keyboard could be used?

This new addition to the retro game console collection. Original 1990 Nintendo Tetris Watch game in working condition.

Here’s that CGI application I’ve been working on; a work-in-progress, basic HTML frontend to the Wayback Machine, for browsing the old web straight from an old browser, including the Wayback Machine’s site search 💻🌐📅

I don’t do this a lot but here is a selfie to promote the 2021 Revision demoparty Shirt
