OpenWrt for Fritz!Box 7360 EWE Edition

What was going on? Recently, I had the unique opportunity to open-source flash a “Fritz!Box 7360 EWE Edition” with the guarantee of no consequences in case I completely brick it! So my first choice fell on OpenWrt, as it is a well-known and well-documented open-source firmware for routers and modems. Especially, this would fix issues with increasingly decreasing wireless performance with the original firmware after multiple weeks of uptime (thanks AVM).

OPNsense for R&S GP T-10

What? I recently got some old firewalls - the “Rhode & Schwarz GP T-10” (they are even still oficially supported by the latest software release by the manufacturer!). These are embedded devices build to be deployed in workshops (or any other harsh environment) and are therefore fanless designed. They are also very small and have a very low power consumption. The hardware is quite old, but still more or less capable for a firewall.

Ceiling Light: B.K.Licht and Home Assistant

Leadup Everything started as I bought the “LED Panel, Colour Temperature Fully Adjustable […]” by “B.K.Licht” off Amazon. It worked great with the also shipped remote control and it was only a little bit inconvenient to never have the remote when needed. It is a 15W LED panel with RGB/WW/CW and therefore 5 channels. I chose it because the pictures in the reviews indicated a modular power supply and also showed some minor information about the wattage and ratings.

LaTeX is shit

Here is my list of problems… Bad parameter transfer: {} is so illegible in quantities Commands are illegible: In LibreOffice I write e in R or m = abs (M) and have what I want. Done. Nesting is shitty to read: If it ends with }}})} you have a lot of fun! Not live: Okay, I’ll put it behind bracket number four… Wait five seconds… Damn, put it next to it and again… - And only when Overleaf isn’t going crazy!

Prusa Mini+ WiFi and virtual USB

What? The Prusa Mini+ has a problem: It has no WiFi. Also the software does not support any wifi module until now - that feature is planned, but not implemented. Additionally the web interface is, let’s say, not really working, as the printer struggles with serving the static contents (like .css and .js), which are required to render the site. This issue is also known since release 4.3.0 but also not resolved (#1285).

Kernel Panic by SCSI

I’ve notices some kernel panics on one of my vms when ever any other vm was doing some more cpu intensive work. It seemed there was no reason, as there was no unusual ram usage or vm-host events! So I ignored it for a while until I was finally able to trigger it by using one of my own services - here is a little record of the crash (just in case of further reference):

SQLite to MariaDB Migration of Solder

What happended? Well, quick and simple: I needed to migrate my Solder service for the Technic Launcher to an other database backend for several reasons. One main reason was, that the current hoster of it planned to shutdown some deprecated PHP versions - but Solder does not support the sqlite database for newer PHP versions anymore. So I needed to switch the database solution (without loosing too much data, because the instance houses several hundert modification at the time) right now.

WarriorCats Roleplay - Beendet

Nun… Nichts währt für immer und ewig, auch wenn es anders scheint. Damit möchte ich nun auf das Ende des WarriorCats Roleplay Projekt (zumindest von meiner Seite) verweisen. Es sei angemerkt, dass das ganze Projekt eventuell dank der Community weiterlaufen wird - wenn sich nun doch noch Jemand findet. So war die Suche nach einem neuen Admin schon seid Längerm im Gange, konnte aber nur langsam abgeschlossen werden. Der Discord Server wird nun unter neuer Führung weiterlaufen - bis auf Weiteres.
