Life have been pretty busy the last couple of months, both at work and at home. So I haven’t had much time available for projects lately… And I started re-watching Game of Thrones, damn that series is awesome, and addictive! But I have some projects in the making :)

Project plans

I am working on an Arduino air quality sensor, that can detect when I am smoking a cigar, and turn on the fan if needed.

And I am thinking about making a new version of the Lync presence (busy) light with 5mm LEDs that uses a stacklight instead of those small LEDs.

I recently also started looking into MQTT and ESP8266, no doubt future projects will utilize this. It’s just too awesome to ignore.

Website updates

I have managed a few website updates:

  • Now using AWS CloudFront instead of KeyCDN, it feels faster…
  • Server now running Ubuntu with PHP7 and latest Nginx.
  • Added part documentation and links, this will show up in project part lists, where available.
