When are we going to have a computer that focuses the window I'm looking at?

I think programmers are afraid of planning because they're in denial that 99% of our job is taking data from one place, transform it, and put it somewhere else.

Ugh. The worst part about SSRIs is not being able to DayQuil my symptoms away.

@varx
Yeah, if designed well the delivery infrastructure could be anything.

If all messages are encrypted for only the receiver to read they could be placed onto IPFS or something else public.

The biggest challenge I see is hiding the sender and receiver metadata for privacy reasons.

How many microservices does it take to turn on a lightbulb

@sn0w
Haha. It isn't *that* complicated tbh.

The actual hot path to turn on the light on is two services and a redis server to act as the messaging queue.

The other part of that diagram is analytics (i.e. how they make money off you).

That said, it could all be replaced with one Home Assistant server running locally.

I have a really good memory for customers. If there's a regular at my store, chances are I know them by sight and name. But I'm very quiet and don't often use names even for friends/family. I just talk in their direction.

But I noticed people assume I don't know them. Even if I see them every day. And then they feel like I don't care, I'm just the person between them and their meds.

So I started greeting everyone I know by name this week. And WOW. I did not realize how much that meant to people, but apparently it's a lot and it completely turns those interactions around.

And I feel really good about it. It's nice making people smile a little.

Idiots would take offense to being associated with the all-right ;)

@christianbundy
I found this today, snips.ai

Lots of moving parts to get off the cloud: 1. Smartthings -> Home Assistant; Google Home -> snips | Jasper | ???; Harmony -> ???

All these things have to be done without disrupting the users, my family, who have little tolerance for broken tech.

@hax
Oh my! CW that. For a second I thought there were ads in the Fediverse and it scared me. :)

I use Signal with people I don't mind giving my phone number to (Even then I use my burner #)

I'm waiting for Matrix e2ee to leave beta and then I'll probably run it myself and force all channels to e2ee.

Is there a free open source version of Google Home? I want to be able to control Harmony and Smartthings with my voice
