Did a really nice AMA this morning with my meditation teacher. Lots of typing (he gives really detailed answers). Lots of good questions. Would love to do another one. :)

I've been doing a bit of Z-wave hacking in pursuit of IoT win. This is a video demonstration of the open-source Domoticz home management GUI controlling an Aeotech smart strip using an Aeotech Z-stick rev 5 USB stick to control the Z-wave network.

There were a few challenges to getting it set up. The Domoticz tar package didn't run on Mint Linux, so I built it from source, which was great, but it required the OpenZWave library, and defaulted to static. There's no OpenZWave package for Mint, so I had to build OpenZWave from source and install it, which was easy, but produced a shared library install in a weird location, not a static library, which CMake for domoticz was expecting. So it took me a while to learn CMake enough to understand why it was defaulting to static and fix it.

Once I got those bits working, it took me a bit more time to figure out how to get the power strip to pair with the controller. Turns out you have to put the controller in scan mode and then press a cleverly hidden button on the power strip that tells it to pair. Once that happened, the whole thing lit up, and I was able to configure it in the Domoticz GUI. Pretty sweet.

The video just demos domoticz control of the power strip from the web UI. You can tell which outlets are on because they have bright blue LEDs next to them (ugh). Obviously when this thing goes into production, it's going to have electrical tape over all the LEDs.

In principle, yes. The interface between the IPv6 controller and the IPv6-gatewayed device might be problematic from a translation perspective, but it's a SMOP, of course.

From the department of "the more things change:" +Gretchen McCulloch's question was answered with a "yes," and a passage by Bokenham from 1440 getting angry at those kids these days with their "corrupcioun of Englysshe men yn þer modre-tounge."

(That's "corruption of Englishmen in their mother tongue," for those of you who have so debauched their notion of English that they can't understand the plain and ordinary speech of the mid-15th century. Seriously! What's with education these days?)

Yup.

They sure are. Learning to display control of your thoughts and emotions is more of an art i think: learn the skills, but how to apply them?

Interesting. I hadn't heard of ballot fusion before. Seems like a good idea.

Wow, what a lovely video about the left and right brains. Lots of good hard neuroscience, but it winds up talking about how to be happier and create a happier society. Nice!

I took the Vermonter from Washington to Brattleboro on Friday. It leaves from Union Station at 8am, so I decided to spend the night in a Hilton Garden Inn north of the station. This is the view from the station. You can just barely see the Smithsonian Castle off in the distance. Nice sunset.

Unfortunately, the construction site in the foreground, which is quite visually interesting, was also producing a hell of a lot of noise, which continued into the night, finally stopping sometime around 1am. Didn't wreck my sleep or anything, but wasn't nice.

Would definitely stay here again. Very easy bike ride to Union Station (I took the Vermonter because it was an easy way to get a bike down to D.C. with me).

Used to be a bus from the Burlington airport, maybe still.

I have to be down in Herndon when the Friends of Music Labor Day Weekend concerts are happening. Sigh. So I did a little bit of pre-concert sign work today. There are two signs that are a particular pain to put up, and I just put them up--they're far enough down Packers Corners Road that nobody is likely to mind them.

And then I did surgery on two of the other difficult signs, so that now they can just be attached to the existing sign posts with bolts, instead of the haphazard method I was using before. These will make life a lot easier for the person who is doing substitute sign duty, whoever that turns out to be.

The key details that that person needs to know, which is the main reason I am sharing this, is that you can basically just whack the sign up against the post (with a little fiddling, perhaps, but hopefully not much, to get the bolts through holes in the sign post) and then let go of the sign while you grab a pair of nuts and washers out of the little Ace Hardware bag in the cookie tin and tighten them on.

Fuck. Where is John McClean when you need him?

We really, really need to learn to chill the fuck out. I don't mean the people in the airport--I mean the whole country.
Travelers lived through the panic and chaos of a terror attack, only to learn it was an act of mass crowd hysteria.

I hope so too.

I like to think I'd be able to maintain situational awareness and not get caught up in the hysteria if I were in this situation, but when I've been in crowds, the kind of aimless confusion the author describes has been the rule, not the exception. Even if you aren't afraid, you still have no real idea where to go or what to do.

Yup.
 
Such scenarios do not inspire you to grip your armrests and wonder how our heroes will escape this time; they inspire you to cheer for the fucking asteroid.
I watched TOS reruns repeatedly and religiously in high school. Even watched the cartoons. Bought the James Blish episode adaptations, then the (better-written) Alan Dean Foster ones, then an endless series of mostly-forgettable tie-in novels (a few written by the likes of Joe Haldeman and Vonda ...

I think he's aware. I don't agree that absolutely anything goes. The misogyny in the first two movies was pretty far off the reservation, considering the original series.

Tiny little hole in the wall. Nice decor. Not quiet, but you can have a conversation. Food is really great. The name means two times as much pepper, and that seems to be true. We had the broccoli in garlic sauce, which is not hot, and the ma-po tofu, which is. They went very well together. The tofu normally comes with pork, but they were happy to make it vegetarian. They have a hotness scale, one to five. They say three is quite hot, and I agree. We came back two days later and had the same thing, it was so good.

The staff were very friendly. I got a very thorough exam, and Dr. Ambler got me the prescription I needed and set me up with some contacts the same day. I intend to keep going.
