So… I didn’t manage to write at all last year. I was busy. That’s no real excuse and I do quite like writing these posts.
What did I do last year?
SNACa Network Access Controller I can run on my network to collect bandwidth stats and lock down what individual devices can do. This is good fun as it runs a netfilter queue to decide what to do with packets and interacts with
iptableswhich is interesting stuff.
BookThinga book shelf manager / reading log tool (this is where the
procdogfooding is happening).
CharityThingwhich was a good idea, but I think will have to be ditched. The plan was to create a tool which you could use to budget a recurring amount of money to donate to charity and the tool would split it between your preferred charities every month. However there is no easy way to programmatically give money to a charity on behalf of an individual. Each charity does it in it’s own way and usually requires manual steps. So this project is dead in the water - charity onboarding is not something I want to spend a lot of time doing.
And what do I have planned for this year?
I would really like to get
SNAC in a good place, it has been kicking around for a while and I’d love to have it’s functionality running on my local network.
