“Epichrome is made up of two parts: an AppleScript-based Mac application (Epichrome.app) and a companion Chrome extension (Epichrome Helper). Epichrome.app creates Chrome-based site-specific browsers (SSBs) for Mac OSX (Chrome must be installed in order to run them, but they are full Mac apps, each with its own separate Chrome profile).”
Markdown Here is an extension for Chrome, Firefox, and Thunderbird that allows you to write email in Markdown.
“With it, you can write email in Markdown, and then click a button (or context menu item, or use a hotkey) to render the email into good-looking, fully formatted text (HTML, technically).”
Vivaldi is a new web-browser with Chromium at its core and a complete new interface based on current web-technologies.
“Vivaldi is a freeware web browser developed by Vivaldi Technologies, a company founded by Opera Software co-founder and former CEO Jon Stephenson von Tetzchner and Tatsuki Tomita.”
I wish you all
I am taking a litte break and will be back to work next week.
Enjoy your time with family and friends
Spring is slowly arriving … I am more of a summer person and glad that its finally getting warmer again :)
Can not wait to get my Inliners going ;)
Noizio helps you to focus with a little ambient sound, whether it’s raindrops falling, the buzz of a coffee shop, or something else.
Noizio brings those sounds to the desktop in the form of a menubar app for your Mac or an iOS Mobile App.
The App allows you to mash up different sounds and adjust each with a slider.
Really liking this, as it detaches the wireless connection from the lamp, that might fail at some point.
Light bulbs up to 40W are supported and will even be certified for outdoor usage.
emberlight provides Bluetooth, Wifi connectivity and a proximity sensor, all integrating into IFTTT and accessible through a REST Api.
Structure opened its doors a couple of days ago.
Structure offers a simple and powerful IoT cloud platform for developing the next generation of connected experiences. They offer device management with robust data visualization that reacts in real-time.
They have a nice drag & drop workflow interface that allows you to forward data coming in, combine data or just store it.
I will be testing a builder kit with the platform, that includes the Adafruit Feather Huzzah, which offers native Wifi connectivity. My Raspberry Pi’s will also find their way into the system. The platform allows to consume REST Apis as well, that will make it even more fun to build something unique.
If you are interested in IoT, you should really check it out. Its free :)

Finally decided to replace all switches with ProSafe managed switches from Netgear (GS105E-200PES / GS108E-300PES).
We constantly had client discovery problems across the network, turns out that was mostly a IGMP (Multicast protocol) problem. Now with the new 5-Port and 8-Port switches in place, we can finally enjoy live streaming from everywhere without a problem.
Also removed the last 100 MBit/s connection, so we are finally 1 GBit/s across the whole network. Replaced some areas with the new Powerline adapters from Tenda (P1002P), these support up to 1000 MBit/s :), which allows us to reduce Wifi in many areas.
Happy networking ….
