Henrik Carlsson's Blog

It appears that I was quite good at documenting my work on the music player, so I’m up and running again now.

Previously I’ve used an old USB webcam (actually a PlayStation eyeToy Camera) as the scanner and it has worked fine. However I wanted something different in the long run, so yesterday I bought a camera module for the Raspberry Pi.

The main thing I’m doing tonight, apart from getting back to where I were, is to test whether this particular camera works or not. So far it has not been plug and play but maybe it was foolish of me to expect that. As I’m writing this I’m doing a apt-get update and apt-get upgrade and then I’ll have to do some configuration in raspi-config.

Also, I’m starting to get reaaaaaaally tired so I’ll probably call it a night pretty soon. I blame daylight savings time.

Linn and I finished watching Stranger Things Seasons 2 and 3 yesterday and since we don’t have any other show queued up, now seems like a good time to resume my work on a music player for the kids.

Right now I’m mostly trying to figure out how far I got the last time I worked on it.

Problemet är att varje sådan här välmenande men verkningslös symbolåtgärd gör risken större att folk inte går med på de svårare och viktigare klimatåtgärderna.

@alcedine Is it The Killers that are that loud?

So I guess I’d very much like any recommendations of easy to use shopping list apps where I can also share lists with Linn.

iOS 13 managed to turn inputting things into Remainders from a simple thing into an insanely enjoying one. Having to pause for a second between pressing return on one item and starting to write the next one is terrible when compiling a shopping list.

@stefp I agree about the eighties cliches. I still have a couple of episodes to go but I really enjoy it as a whole. The best thing about this third season compared to the second is that they seem to once again have realized that their biggest strength is Eleven and the actress playing her. My god, she is amazing!

@hollyhoneychurch Yeah, I love Jessica’s character as well, but I loved the first season in large part because David Tennant’s Kilgrave was such a horrible person.

@herself The part about it fitting for a cold winter’s night sure sounds nice. Thanks!

iOS 13 bug of the day: Deleting a file in Files always results in a blank view and me having to navigate back to the directory in question manually.

@teisam “Write like nobody’s reading.”

In some respects, micro.blog is actually bad for me in that regard because knowing that my stuff is syndicated there/here clearly influences my posting.

@burk I’d like to see that as well. And I have a question as someone living it a country that is just staring to celebrate Halloween, and a country that is still struggling to realize when Halloween is supposed to be celebrated.
When is it usually that folks in the U.S and other traditional celebrators of Halloween start putting up their decorations? When are they torn down?

@burk This is so cool! I haven’t played much board games since I was a kid but the idea of them has always appealed to me so it’s fun to read about your process and process.

After having had it disconnected for a long time I’m currently plugging my DroboFS back in to migrate some files from it before finally sending it to a farm upstate and I gotta say, the slowness of something as simple as having it boot and connect to it makes me wonder why I ever got the damn thing.

Is it ATP that has changed or is it me? I feel like I get annoyed when listening to them so much more often these days.

I just removed the clear case from my iPhone 11 and oh my God it feels so much less clunky now.

We’re three episodes in on *Stranger Things* season three. So far the lows are lower than before because it gets sillier than usual but it’s also much more scary than previous seasons so I think I like it more than season two.

@hollyhoneychurch Either I’ve zoned out completely while watching and missed a lot of the character names, or we are talking about different shows. 🙂

@moritz Which part? The ads themself, the double standards, what?

Personally I don’t know if I’m so much tired of how many podcasters seems to not accept that they are advertising machines as much as I am bemused by it.

@ReaderJohn I’m glad to hear.

@cdevroe Oh yes, you are correct.

@hollyhoneychurch With seasons one and two it was a great combo. For season three the bourbon is more or less requires to enjoy it. (I think the quality has decreased a lot for season three.)

@herself I’ve actually never had a port. Is it something I should try?

This is probably a case of “old man yelling at clouds”, but I am 100% onboard with Marco here. Why do we keep breaking what works?

Two days ago all my Shortcuts suddenly became wonky. Some of them require me to allow them access to certain things, others have broken. WTF Apple?

Dear advertisers on YouTube,

I don’t bet. Ever.

I also don’t play sports video games. Ever.

So save yourselves some money and me some annoyance by not targeting those ads to me. Thanks.

Am I doing something wrong or is the ability to pin widgets in iPadOS 13 not available on an iPad Mini?

Just finished season two of *Stranger Things*. All in all a fairly good season, though not at all as good as the first one. Maybe that was lightning in a bottle?

@Hjertnes I agree 100%. At work we have an informal policy for MacOS versions that states that we don’t update until the summer after a major release.

@furstenberg That’s good to know. Makes me feel less terrible for giggling when I first read about it.

Season 3 of Jessica Jones is really improved when combined with a healthy helping of bourbon.

Really That Good: Independence Day

Now this seems like the perfect video essay for me. I love this movie and I think it is way under appreciated by critics and essayists alike.

Every singer, no matter how technically skilled, has their voice change by time. Every singer but Robert Smith. I don’t understand how it’s possible for him to sound exactly the same today as he did twenty-five years ago.

Pro audio stuff can sometimes have the silliest names. Despite the name and the URL though, MNTN seems like a really interesting solution for immersive audio.
