  1. Love Mr. Robot, the lengths the team went to to ensure that everything was "real" and legit was really good, I remember they featured a version of Elasticsearch (Kibana) in one of the scenes, and they actually worked with Elasticsearch to use an older version that was out at the same timeframe that they were shooting in, amongst other stuff. Definitely the best series or film I've seen with regards to how "hacking" is portrayed.
  2. Hey all, we've been looking for a good way to create an alarm system that doesn't break the bank and has all the features we want - we are really happy with how this one came out! Please let me know your feedback and hope it is interesting! https://everythingsmarthome.co.uk/howto/how-to-make-your-own-dual-purpose-wireless-alarm-system-with-home-assistant-part-1
  3. I think this a very smart move from them, it should help to silence the "spyware" issues that were discussed a while back and generally make everyone feel a bit easier about trusting them, of course we will need to wait for a while to give people time to look through the code and verify, but overall a very smart business move IMO!
  4. Ah sorry, I mean IT security firms, some of the best come from Israel!
  5. Also there are a lot of security companies based out of Israel, not sure why!
  6. I don't disagree with that, their communication has been abysmal. I 100% agree. OK, "supports" was perhaps not the word I should have used, official support has been limited so far but it does work on many many devices by simply opening chrome on any other phone. Seen people running it on Galaxy's, OnePlus's etc by just using Chrome. The 1080p Chrome thing was actually communicated beforehand. However I find it interesting your saying Chrome is limited to 1080p when the entire xCloud library is limited to 720p? Again, Playstation now limited to 720p.
  7. Source: https://www.forbes.com/sites/moorinsights/2019/12/16/intel-acquires-habana-labs-for-2b My thoughts: Seems like Intel is trying to finally combat NVIDIA in the AI space which it hasn't managed to do yet, NVIDIA has been pretty much unchallenged at this point. Be interesting to see if they can provide some competition within the next few years, competition is always good!
  8. Hopefully this blows over, I absolutely love NGINX and especially NGINX support (yes paid), so would hate anything to happen to it ?
  9. If you think its shit then you've been paying attention to the media spin, not the actual users. Media has hated on it from the start, not sure why. If you read community posts you will see 95% of users are having a fantastic experience. Your statement about losing games if you cancel your monthly subscription is 100% false, this is why its getting a bad rap in the media is because people are spreading misinformation: https://www.pcgamer.com/uk/cancelling-stadia-pro-wont-lock-you-out-of-your-discounted-games/ The service is 100% not on its knees, far from it. There was issues for 5 days after launch which they should definitely have done better with, no doubt about it. But since then, zero issues. The competition is not light years ahead, infact Stadia does not have any direct competition. xCloud isn't a competitior because its Android only and 720p only. GeForce Now is pretty similar but the technology isn't the same at all. Stadia supports every device, not sure what you mean here? That's literally the whole point of Stadia is it's available everywhere? Those that I have seen with problems is down to their network setup being poor, who then come back and say they fixed it after doing X, Y, Z. I've even seen people playing it literally on a moving train on Wifi. So not sure why you are having issues. Agreed, they need to sort the 4k60FPS out with the developers.
  10. To be fair, the general consensus is Stadia works great, the underlying technology is there and the games are very playable. What most of the complaints are about now are the lack of basic features, which is understandable but hopefully they will deliver on those. This is good news because the actual hardest challenge (getting the games to a playable latency) seems to be great. Another point is, it isn't Google's fault that people have data caps/terrible speeds. Data caps in Europe are non-existent so it is perfectly useable for us over here. Of course, its a consideration you should have when buying. Steam link is great, if you already have the gaming PC to power it, for casuals who don't have $1000+ PC's, I think its a good option that will hopefully only get better if Google keep at it. Just my opinion!
  11. Damn, keep trying they might come back in!
  12. I just bought one just now so must have restocked. Don't know why I bought it mind you, I have no use for it...but hey ?
  13. I was literally replying with this, arguably skype is actually easier to install under Ubuntu ?
  14. Nice, I bought an AX200 as an upgrade for my laptop a few weeks ago, I didn't really care if it was certified at the time but nice to see it is!
  15. Total price is less than $20. You are correct, they have these devices and obviously they work well. I saw many of these in my research. The problem being that they are often to sense a single person, since hospital beds are usually single beds. This isn't a deal breaker but its a nice feature to be able to tell how many people are in the bed, not just IF someone is in the bed. Hopefully that makes sense! Appreciate the comment, it was something I looked into!
  16. It's this one, I didn't make it: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3564942 I made the bed enclosure, but sharing that would be useless since it's unique to my bed!
  17. Hey guys! Thought I’d share my bed occupancy sensor (yes I know, more bed occupancy sensors based on load cells!) and hopefully make it easy for anyone else that wants to replicate. Using those cheap 50kg load cells under each corner of the bed, a HX711 board, Wemos D1 Mini and of course Home Assistant! One thing I found hard to find information on was how to mount the sensors. I tried a few things but ended up 3D printing casters/holders for my bed legs and allowing the load cells to slot into them, this stops the bed sliding around on the cells and interfering with the reading. This method keeps everything secure and ensures each cell is in the exact same position. See attached pictures. So what do I use this for? This has greatly improved my automations: Ensuring that when we are both in bed, every light and media player is turned off, door locks are set and the house alarm is set to “armed home”. I have lights that are automated through Home Assistant when motion is detected, I add a condition to these automations not to trigger these lights when we are both in bed, this is so that our dogs do not trigger lights all night. During night hours, the bathroom light comes on at a very dim brightness if one of us exits the bed during the night. This is great for not being blinded when getting up to the bathroom during the night! I’ve created a full guide here Github code: https://github.com/EverythingSmartHome/mqtt-bed-sensor
  18. Sorry I meant, wired or Wifi? I assume wired? What site are you using to test?
  19. Yes that's what I'm trying to suggest, a smaller SSD pool, perhaps 2 SSDs together, and a large many disk HDD array?
  20. Would having a smaller SSD only pool for that project work then transferring it off afterwards?
  21. 2. In this case ZFS Zil combined with l2arc might be of use, data is written to the SSD then later the system will automatically transfer it to the big pool. This might give you a better explanation: https://www.45drives.com/wiki/index.php?title=FreeNAS_-_What_is_ZIL_%26_L2ARC Would an all SSD array be too expensive?
