This is the second time my 2016 MBP (with 10.13.4) has stopped responding to the Caps Lock key. The LED toggles, so the switch is functional, but the OS just ignores the current mode. TYPING WITH CAPS LOCK STUCK IS GARBAGE.
With the recently released homebridge-nest-cam plugin, my old Dropcam has new life in HomeKit. This, combined with Steve Troughton-Smith’s tweets about the Pi Zero W, has sparked a desire to setup additional HomeKit cameras.
It was easy to get the Pi connected to the network, but I ran into trouble when I needed to install
ffmpeg. I couldn’t get it working, and based on some comments, I think it may be fairly difficult to install. I’m speculating that something changed between the Rasbian Stretch image of November 2017 and the image of March 2018.
Instead, I used the pre-built image of homebridge-camera-rpi. After using Etcher to flash the image onto my microSD card, the only modifications I made were to the
/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant-wlan0.conf file to add my network SSID and passkey, and to tweak the settings of the plugin in
With that, I was able to see the Pi on the network (via Lanscan), and add it in the Home app.
Every time I see “Shared Links” in the macOS System Preferences Extensions Pane, I get excited, and then remember that this was ripped out of Safari. 😞
In case you’re looking for any additional reasons to dump Facebook:
Zuckerberg […] seemed to give Facebook “systems” credit for finding and stopping […] messages inciting ethnic violence in Myanmar. […] those messages were discovered by [NGOs] that tried in vain for days to get Facebook to address the problem.
