Introduction I am a HUGE fan of matrix. It allows me to organize my chats in a sensible way, it works with multiple identities and completly anonymous if I want it to. Spaces made Matrix my favourite messenger by far. Yet, there is one feature I have been missing: Disappearing messages! Regarding the security and usability, only Signal is comparable to matrix. But: Signal offers the possibilty to define disappearing messages for groups and direct messages ranging from 30 seconds to 4 weeks.

Integration Following the quickstart documentation I tried to add cactus comments to this blog. I currently rely on infrastructure by cactus.chat as I do not host a private synapse server. I currently implemented this as a shortcode with hard-coded site title and a variable room name. Quickstart with HUGO Register your site There is a registration system, that ensures that you are moderater in your comment section(s). I order to register your site you have to send a message to @cactusbot:cactus.

I recently installed an Owncast server and wanted to share my experience. Here it is: What is owncast? Owncast is a streaming server that you can selfhost, a Twicht in a box as the developers call it. You host owncast on your server (a small VM with good downlink is enough) and can stream your own own content like you would do on Twicht, YouTube etc… It has a chat, a admin panel for customization and thats it!

I had some IoT devices that I wanted to integrate in my monitoring. For this I set up a MQTT broker as the MQTT protocol is a simple solution to send data from IoT devices to a server. This tutorial is focusing on setting up the server, but I also introduce a Python based MQTT client to test our installation. On your server, first install mosquitto, our MQTT server/broker. sudo apt-get install mosquitto Allow standard mqtt port in firewall (if you have ufw installed)

Although physical meetings are not possible, many groups and organizations are dependent on multilingual meetings. In videoconferencing, concepts such as a whispered translation are not intuitive. Therefore a friend and I have developed a concept for translation in videoconferencing. The concept was planned for a conference with 80 participants who will discuss and make decisions over two days either in large groups or in sub-groups. The videoconferencing software that was used was BigBlueButton (BBB).

As you man now I work in a research lab. Nearly everyone in our lab needs to do at least some programming. There are trained software engineers next to people how write their first line of code here. As we produce a lot of code that is only scripts not many people used git or any other version control system. For all the good reasons (some are mentioned in the guide) we everybody to learn git in a way that is tradeoff between good version control and fast development.

TL;DR Hy - Water Teck - Castle nearby Summary: Bad name pun Why the name Hyteck? I am not very good at finding names I really like. My nickname changed several times, I was never able to stick to one. As hard as finding a nickname was finding a domainname for me. Nevertheless I really started to like the name Hyteck. The idea came during a hackathon in Tübingen where two friends and I worked as a team on a project to help elderly adults drinking.

ILMO is my first bigger FOSS-project. It aims at managing small libraries as found in a department of a university. You can finde the project on Github. History: I started to create ILMO for the (rather small) library in the study rooms of mediacal engineering. It contains about 300 books, 120 labcoats and safty glasses and some more stuff. As I was in charge of the lends I started to get annoyed by our paper-based solution.

Hello world Welcome to my new blog! I don’t know what this will all be about - but I will sort this out. As a start I decided to blog in English, but I can imagine that there will be a mix between English and German in the future. The blog is created with the static site generator HUGO and the theme Nederburg. initComments({ node: document.getElementById("comment-section"), defaultHomeserverUrl: "
