evildre, what library are you going to use on your Arduino to write to InfluxDB?

Not in front of the IDE at the moment, but IIRC it's this one: https://github.com/arduino-libraries/ArduinoHttpClient

I'm doing a post with authentication, as this is going to be sharing a network with a lot of other stuff and I don't want people UDPing a bunch of BS into the database.

<edit> Yep, that's the one. Need to figure out the proper syntax for HTTP POST requests. I know I have to base64 encode the credentials in username:password format.

Got my solder on today.
  • Put two strips of header on an Ethernet FeatherWing, since it doesn't come with them attached.
  • Put four strips of female header on a FeatherWing Doubler because, as with the Ethernet FeatherWing, it doesn't come with them attached. Ended up looking like the picture.
  • Plugged some Stacking Headers into one set of female headers, and then plugged a 128x32 OLED FeatherWing into those stacking headers.
  • At some point a Feather 32u4 Basic will show up, and that will be sandwiched between the Doubler and the OLED ... which means I'll have to solder the stacking headers to the 32u4 Basic.
  • I'll also have to solder some wires in place and figure out how to attach the BME680 sensor to this whole mess. I'm thinking it'll sit next to the Ethernet jack, but ... yeah, haven't decided yet.
Then, I grabbed the calipers and fired up Fusion 360 to create a box to put it in. I've printed the box in draft mode but I haven't taken it off the printer yet. Not sure how to feel about the result because I've never used Fusion 360, and I haven't done any CAD stuff since like 8th grade, so ... yeah.

I actually meant M0 Basic in my last post ... not 32u4. It showed up a few minutes ago and I've already soldered the stacking headers to it.

If you do, do yourself a favor and get one with ever so slightly more storage Smile Adafruit's Metro M0 Express has 256K of flash, an additional 2MB flash (if you're using Circuit Python), and, from what I understand, it's pretty easy to bring your code over.

Well, given that I have a 433MHz set up in the house, I'm also thinking of just building ATTiny85 bases sensors for that.

Running an initial burn-in/calibration of the BME680 sensor. It was really easy to wire up and poll for data, but I might need to use something lighter than 20 gauge wire, since the holes are just big enough to fit that.

I upgraded the server in my basement to Proxmox 6, which runs on Debian 10 (Linux 5.0 kernel). Did it in-place with no backup of the two largest VMs on it because I live on the edge, yo. Upgrade was completely smooth and flawless, but I suppose it's easier to upgrade a standalone server than a large clustered environment. That means I now have three VMs on Ubuntu 18.04.3 with the 5.0 kernel, and three Alpine LXC containers on 5.0 as well (because container).

ALSO MELEE, BECAUSE YOU SHOULD HIT THEM WITH THE BUTT OF YOUR GUN.

I'm still going through BL2, clearing out the rest of the side missions that I hadn't done on all my various characters. All I have left at this point is the new DLC with Axton, then whatever Krieg has going for him. Which is probably all the DLC and Headhunter packs, since that seems to be par for the course.

After I do all that... I have no idea what I will be playing. Maybe AC: Unity, since I got that with Ubisoft was giving it away, maybe Tacoma, maybe something else.

Put together a bill of materials for my next home improvement ... thing. I want to finish the laundry room, as it has been in this weird half-finished state for a while. Currently, one wall is made up of metal studs; the other walls are as they should be. Washer, dryer, and slop sink are in the correct positions. Floor is new -- we redid that a few years back -- but I never put baseboard molding down there. So, looks like I'm going to need to get two sheets of green board, joint tape, fine-thread drywall screws (because metal studs), joint compound, baseboard molding + quarter round, star drive trim screws (again, metal studs), finishing nails, caulk, dust filter for wet/dry vac, wood filler, 6" joint knife (biggest one I have is 4" and that won't do), drywall primer, ceiling paint, door/baseboard paint, wall paint, door knob, threshold trim plate, and drywall screw setter.

I also want to redo the dryer vent, but that's only like $15 extra.

There are some old-ass wood cabinets above the washer/dryer that need to be removed. That'll require a lot of mudding once they're gone. There's also a bit of a clusterfuck going on on the ceiling -- just doesn't look right, and the light fixture is awful -- so I'll probably need to update that as well.

I'm at the office. Put a 10g SFP+ NIC in our current production host. Now migrating VMs to the ES1640dc v2 we put in place for our upgrades (two SuperMicro 1023US-TR4 servers w/ 2 EPYC 7301 CPUs, 256GB of RAM & 2 240GB SSDs in RAID 1 (on a RAID HW controller) for ESXi & a dual port 10g SFP+ NIC). Starting to migrate the VMs over to it now. Going much faster than expected.

Home lab, duh.

The more I think about it the more I'm thinking I will see about getting the RAM upgrade for the ES1640dc v2, an EJ1600 v2 expansion shelf, 8 QNAP interposers, 2 .5m SFF-8644 to SFF-8644 SAS cables & two more 10G DACs so I can migrate the VMs off our SfB host, pull the SSDs out of it and put them in the EJ1600 v2 as a SSD cache for the array in the ES1640dc v2, then have the SfB host mount the array over NFS like the two EPYC servers will soon.

There's going to be some fun goings-on once I get those two Supermicro things up and running. Need to feed it some hard drives and make a bunch of patch cords, though. I want to have a 10Gb replication network and a 10Gb migration network, but since I only have two nodes I'll just slap cables between the two nodes. I know I'll use one of the NICs for management, but I haven't decided how I'll handle VM communication. Thinking I'll put management and VM communication on the same interface (since I'm not going to be hitting management that often), and then run another cable between the two nodes on the other 1Gb port for cluster communications, since I don't want that to be interrupted by replication/migration.

I flew to Kentucky and spent the entire month of August with the girlfriend. It was supposed to be a week, I needed more time.

Man ... I haven't run any new cables since we put the new cold aisle containment structure up in the data center, but that sucked. Had to run 6 OM4 cross-connects and the cable trays are above the cabinets, largely outside of the cold aisles. I was sweating like a whore in church the whole time.

Also, finished the second coat of primer in the laundry room last night. Pretty happy with the result, so I painted the ceiling white. I have some light blue for the walls, but I always do two coats, so I won't start that until I finish off the ceiling.

Second day of getting up at 4am to catch the 5am train so I can do ESXi upgrades on our lab servers. Going to 6.7 from 5.5 & 6.0. Slow process. Also really "looking forward" to putting a new belt in the dryer this weekend. Also means finally fixing the soft copper line they have running right to the dryer by adding a flexible gas line for that little bit. Also, have a Clifford thing at school for the boys Saturday morning, then one of Lucas' friends has a birthday party Saturday afternoon, then church Sunday morning and Costco right after that... Not 100% sure when I will get the dryer done....

So, I guess Mario is a Cub Scout now.
