A few fun facts about the Kindle PW3:
- It’s running Linux 3.0
- It’s using awesomeWM
- It comes with tmux/htop preinstalled

Dusted off my old Kindle Paperwhite, installed the jailbreak and wrote a small software in Go (because of super easy cross-compilation support for ARM) to display departure dates for public transport.

@jomo good luck, maybe it’ll get fixed in 3 months :^)

Managed to get the development snapshot of Berlins firmware running on this tiny MikroTik mAP lite. Had to netboot the latest OpenWrt snapshot into RAM and then flash from there. Strangely enough it did not work with the last stable release. MTD didn’t show any devices then. Anyways, it’s a fully functional node now, and boy is it fast. Aaand it consumes only 4W peak.

I’ve acquired this Sony CRT and now I’m using a Raspberry Pi and its Composite Video Out together with Gstreamer to send and sync a video stream from my laptop to it. Works now, but was quite an act because I had do enable the experimental OpenGL drivers for the Pi to get rid of the horrible screen tearing, but the driver does not support overscan properly so I had to adjust manually. And In general Gstreamer can be quite a challenge but the possibilities are endless…

Berlin really is lacking some DAPNET transmitters. My Skyper/Pager is useless without them. 😞

So I’ve finally got my own MMDVM hotspot up and running. I’m using a MMDVM_HS_Dual_Hat for the Raspberry Pi, which I’ve ordered from China but it has all the genuine ICs and works flawlessly so far.

ich habe schon mindestens 50 big funkies genutzt und immer war der ton warm und lecker. aber heute, dieser digitalfunk, der ist so kalt, da sind die wörter schon an der antenne festgeklumpt. das heißt, die bits lagen im cache schon seit mindestens 15ms und das hat nichts mehr mit 1 funkgerät zu tun, bis auf das aussehen.

Mastodons design decisions are so poor I don’t even know where to start. And as always no prior discussion took place. Decisions are just made and the Fediverse has do deal with them.
