I just started the Roomba from my home office (using the WiFi remote control that I built it last week) and I can hear @SnoopysBF in the bedroom muttering about it under his breath 🤣🤣🤣
He hates that thing. It's one of several nemeses of his (another would be ducks 🦆).
You can use the Fibonacci sequence to convert (roughly) from miles to km.
If one number in the sequence is the number of miles, the next number is approximately the number of km.
For instance, 3 miles is about 5 km. 5 miles is about 8 km, and 8 miles is about 15 km.
I've written my own code for hooking the Roomba into our smarthome (over MQTT). It's a work in progress, but IMHO it's already better than the sample code I found online. gitlab.com/jaywll/home-au…
When I was looking for dinnertime music I found a playlist called “No Diggity: Chill '90s Rap and R&B” and from now on I will be listening to it at all times. https://t.co/HKLD398wMY
That's enough dog news for now.
I wish I could get it working properly on dual-SIM phones, like the Google-made one I'm currently using.
This is Benny. He’s just checking in on you. Hopes you’re doing okay, but is here for you if not. 12/10 thank you Benny https://t.co/sU4PaTQSom
Dogs prefer to poo on a North-South axis.

There's more software work to do because the sample code I found is super basic, but the proof of concept works! With a parts bill of ~$15 I've hooked this thing up to WiFi and given it an API I can use to integrate it into our smart home hub. #hacking #roomba #esp8266 #arduino https://t.co/lgqAqtbsSt

I guess I'm just that guy now that's three minutes late for every meeting and then drags them all three minutes over time making myself and everyone else three minutes late for their next meeting.

Previews of upcoming films were originally shown after the main feature, hence the name 'trailers'.
do NOT, and i cannot stress this enough, wake me up before you go-go
Since the clocks changed last night the sun had already risen for today's #Weekend #Morning #ExtraMediumWalk with @snoopysbf. All the snow from last week is but a distant memory and the obligatory landscape pic is another autumnal vista. It's a breezy and warm start to November, and things could definitely be worse. 🐾🐕🍂
Jack-'o-lanterns originated in Ireland, and used to be carved out of turnips. The name is tied to the Irish legend of Stingy Jack, a drunkard who bargains with Satan and is doomed to roam the Earth with only a hollowed turnip to light his way.
So refreshing! Thank you, mysterious stranger, for the life-giving liquidy sustenance.
My most recent isolation project is a refresh to my long-neglected website. Today the first MVP release is ready. ja.son-williams.ca
There was a point there where I was starting to wonder if it would ever stop snowing, but it's a glorious (if chilly) day for a #Weekend #Morning #ExtraMediumWalk with @snoopysbf and some obligatory landscape photography. We went to our favourite neighborhood pond but it's already frozen over and all our duck friends have moved out. 📷🐕🐾

Just tearing the family room apart to replace some speaker cables, no big deal.
A “beyond burger” implies the existence of a “bed burger ” and a “bath burger”
Friday lunchtime exploratory laptop surgery has mostly been a success. The fan transplant I had planned is cancelled because I was able to fix the one that's in there, but there was one case screw I couldn't get back in all the way and I stripped my T5 screwdriver trying 😔 https://t.co/cupH2hPaAa
At a convention of the American Medical Association in 1919, red wine was commended as procuring ‘amazing results’ if used as a tonic for weak children.
