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 ….
All-in-one voice and text chat for gamers that’s free.
You will also find some nice projects to build bots for the service, like Discord.js for example.
Its almost time for the hardware spring cleanup again. Desktops, NAS, External harddrives, printers …
Just the right browser game to relax after a long day :) … or not !
