I'm writing a system which shows random pictures from my backup (Synology with person detection) on my TV. It's quite complicated and involves 3 computers and a Chromecast as hardware for specific reasons but it works nicely already.

I just switched from ImageMagic to OpenCV for the resizing and cropping (I want the pictures to fit always fit the TV size) so that I can do cool things in the future like face detection so I don't crop where the face is,...


We made a TikTok video but I don't have a TikTok account so instead it's on my PeerTube:

Today I saw ads on my DuckDuckGo search result because I used it in a new browser. I went into the DDG preferences and switched them off. Actually I was looking on how to pay them to remove it but they seem not to offer a payed subscription.

I posted a video comment on "Swimming in Korea" where I talk about how difficult this is here.

Over night I had an ant invasion, and I'm on the 14th floor of a big building, no idea where they were coming from. Anyway, I cut of their entrance with dishwasher and started smiting all of them inside. I didn't distinguish between the good or the bad ones, I killed them all. Then I remembered

I'm using "Moments" on my Synology NAS but would like to tap into the AI classification of my pictures and do things with them. Is there a API which I could use?

This is sadly very true. Just yesterday I had the Google Home app open and it suggested me to switch on to show pictures of specific people which are on my phone also on the TV via the Chromecast. I clicked one button and we had a nice evening watching a slideshow and talking about those pictures.

Theoretically I would be able to do that on my own devices too. I have all my pictures backed...


In addition to now there is soon the job description of a Movie Actor won't exist ;)

Unify is a bit rediciolous when it comes to accessing the hardware via their cloud. I have three of their devices and need to access each of them via a different landing page, which is prepared to show all of them:

- EdgeRouter ->
- Cloud Key Gen2 Plus ->
- UAP-AC-Lite ->

And that even though I run the same software on a Raspberry Pi for the Access Point and on the Cloud Key...


I wish the "Do Not Disturb" button in GNOME would also supress the bleep sound in Element when a notification comes in. Sometimes I'm in a meeting and people start writing there and it does beep, beep, Beep, BEEEP, BEEEEEEP all the time. Closing the application doesn't help, it keeps running in the background and beeping. I'd need to 'kill' it. Also switching 'Do Not Disturb' back after an hour would be nice too, I always forget to do it after the meeting.

After some gentle encouraging from the community, I took a bit of time to set up a proper blog for TILvids. You can access it at TBD exactly what I'll post here; certainly the monthly updates will live there now (and I'll try to update /r/tilvids as a reminder when I post), but perhaps some other off-the-cuff updates can go there as well. If you have other thoughts about what you'd like to see, feel free to leave a comment!
