I run the microblog.pub as my ActivityPub server. Since I had almost reached 100+ followers and following, I was curious about the diversity or spread of instances. So I wrote some SQL queries to explore the downloaded SQLite.
Since I get Vachanas as a push notification, the probability of me reading it has increased. This encouraged me to add Poem-a-Day to this list.
This time I was sure my move to Fediverse would be much more permanent. So instead of using site instances owned by someone else, I wanted to host it myself. So I started looking for appropriate software. Finally, I chose microblog.pub.
One of the things that I would like to do every day is to read a Vachana. It does appear to me on my desktop daily, but even then, I miss it when I don’t access that specific computer or am busy. So a push message would be great.
I have been looking for embeddable, playable HTML/CSS/JS snippets for some time. Services like JSBin, CodePen, CodeSandbox, etc., do allow that. But I was looking for a self-hosted version as my requirement was just the ability to use HTML/CSS/JS, which are native to the browser and can run offline without any backend services.
I want to use and run many small battery sensors across the home. Wifi would have worked, but battery-powered sensors make them portable and usable. Also, I would like to keep small sensors out of my wifi network for security reasons. Zigbee is the ideal candidate for this.
