sonoff s26: i jotted down some more detailed notes on reflashing that.
here are my technology preferences…
- search: duckduckgo, startpage, google (use with tor)
- browser: firefox, brave, chrome
- plugins: adblock plus, https everywhere, noscript, adnauseum, trackmenot, privacy badger, u2f support for yubikey
- webdev plugins: webdeveloper toolbar, tamperdata, colorzilla, firebug, fireftp, dustmeselectors, live httpd headers
- hardware: purism, thinkpad, raspberry pi, soekris engineering, pc engines
- email: fastmail
- operating system: debian, arch, qubes (i like qubes a lot, but im terrible at the workflow so i just use debian mostly. its just easier and life’s too short. plus i dont really have the RAM for it on my crappy dell optiplex 3010), tails, android
- video chat: skype (im not happy with skype, but everyone uses it.)
- social media: twitter, mastodon
- messaging: signal, telegram
- web hosting: dreamhost, digitalocean, amazon
henceforth, all organic gardening notes will live here.
im working on the write-up for my raspberry pi home-automation and security system that reflects the values of diy, open-source, and owning your own data. im publishing it unfinished in order to force myself to complete it – so please forgive, the mess!
okay, quick update: these sonoff’s are too dangerous: cut-up extension cords plugged into terminals, AC power, cheap chinese technology. it is too risky. but i found these sonoff s26 smart switches on scargill’s website that do away with the cutting up of the cords, and i’m using those for smart automation instead. i feel safer. i updated my documentation to reflect that.

everyone should grow microgreens. they are so good for you. AND theyre really cheap and easy to grow.
i reprogrammed a sonoff and documented it. a $5 smart switch that plugs into home-assistant is pretty cool.
i wrote down my notes on bokashi compost.
i documented my brewing process.
