Things of Note
- 🏦🏖️👦: Finally had some time and got the #RSMB Eclipse Paho #MQTT broker ported to run on an ESP32… Rough-cut but I can pub/sub Andy Stanford-Clark Roger Light Ian Craggs Dave CJ Julian Todd #weeknotes pic.twitter.com/pH1gknuV5m
- Jackie Pease: Trying out some pretty lights that Caroline Keep 🌟😊 gave me after the last lockdown – thanks Caroline! (and to Paul H for desoldering the Feather)
Looks like I’m going to use these to light up some small scale Plastic Tactics #plasticplayground projects
- Adrian McEwen: Making the Ackers Bell ding more reliably; LED kits for My Baby’s Got LED; and more. The latest MCQN Ltd #weeknotes: Week 830 – Better Firing (of Bells) dlvr.it/S6kRMg
- 🏦🏖️👦: This is very VERY sexy. I have some industrial process control kit monitoring some sensor readings and publishing via #MQTT. The sensor telemetry is going to a local WiFi #RSMB BROKER running on the M5Stack #ESP32 in the bottom right. #weeknotes Andy Stanford-Clark pic.twitter.com/dRyvkg4JrY
- Matthew Croughan: I have become magnetic 💉🦾
#weeknotesAsked them to #aspirate the needle before giving me a clot. Turns out I’m not afraid of needles anymore after seeing the process. Mind at ease. pic.twitter.com/mT9J6ENuvZ
- 🏦🏖️👦: This is super lovely Ian Craggs. Bridging #MQTT with the #RSMB. Think of a cloud of local sensor devices publishing to a #picobroker running this. Then bridged to an intermittent cloud broker… Just what I need for my project. Andy Stanford-Clark Roger Light #weeknotesyoutu.be/STZpvK1ylkc
- 🏦🏖️👦: OK I got the TFT library code up and running for the M5Stack. Looking nice. Now just need to show the WiFi addresses for dual AP and STA, and the Broker status and we’ll have a lovely little ready-baked #PicoBroker #WeekNotes Andy Stanford-Clark pic.twitter.com/ZsT3RgeX1p
- 🏦🏖️👦: End of Week 8 #CouchTo5K First 5k run in some years. Now to speed it up. #winning #tigerblood #weeknotes pic.twitter.com/iamRPc977X
- 🏦🏖️👦: Started running about 5pm. Interesting to see the effect on the glucose spike. My body providing energy? #weeknotes #quantifiedself pic.twitter.com/ImXvjlL5QV
