Some days ago I found this little puppy on ricardo.ch:
It just arrived at my door and I tested it on my tiny and old, little Linux laptop and … it worked!
For any other member willing to calibrate his monitor, I will leave it on my not-locked-locker, in a little dark bag, feel free to use it (please, don't take it away from the PTL).
If you are on Linux you can follow the instructions here.
I used this really professional open source calibration software: https://displaycal.net/.
The result is noticeable: the images seem more naturals.
More important the colors are, if not exactly, way closer to what the author meant and calibration is even more crucial if the author is you.
If you happen to have a Spotify Premium account, a Raspberry lying on your lan and some speakers, you could easily stream your Spotify playlist from your phone to the raspberry.
Shrunken installation steps look like these:
$ wget https://github.com/Spotifyd/spotifyd/releases/download/0.2.11/spotifyd-2019-06-19-armv6.zip $ unzip ./spotifyd-2019-06-19-armv6.zip $ ./spotifyd

Go and watch the slides to learn some neat tricks on ssh. Anyway, in this page we will talk about a past workshop I found in the same author's site call Gate as a public, free VPN to reach your own server at home behind NAT.
So I'll show in few steps how I've managed to pull up an hidden web service via the Tor onion network.
All you need for your tor service.
I've put together a simple hello world web service just for the purpose of showing something. Clone the expresshello repo from github or with:
git clone https://github.com/pliski/expresshello.git
(For the records and for the curious it's done with Nodejs/Express/Typescript)
We will use docker to build up our service, because its simple, easy shareable, does not pollute your environment, etc etc.
To access the service you can get a tor browser here .
On Ubuntu I followed these steps in order to install it.
You should follow along the slides of the workshop if you want to have a better understanding of the process. Anyway here we will take a shortcut and use a docker-compose file, like one of those found in this useful repo, that I've adapted to launch our expresshello service.
So, go into the expresshello directory that you have already installed and type:
docker-compose -f docker-compose.tor.yml up
And that's all. Compose will download the goldy/tor-hidden-service and expresshello docker images and run them; at the end, if all went well, you should see the Done message and the Express console waiting for some connection.
The goldy/tor-hidden-service docker image come with a nice utility to retrieve the address of your service. Type:
docker exec -ti expresshello_tor_1 onions
Then copy the address (something like vegm3d7q64gutl75.onion:80) and paste it in the tor browser.
If you are still skeptic try the same thing from another machine/address.
Some practical(?) use cases/ideas.
Install docker in a Raspberry PI at your home and launch your remote home automation service. Or don't use docker and follow the slides.
You can try other images from docker hub or build your own. So why not an image of an SSH server that you could reach with something like:
ssh -o 'ProxyCommand = nc -X 5 -x localhost: 9050% h% p' firstname.lastname@example.org
See this slide .
This was a very quick jump, I encourage you to follow the slides of the talk if you want to dig deeper (or fly higher!).
If you have other use cases or ideas of hidden services feel free to share them in the comments.
Prototype for a 4 characters splitflap display using transparent PMMA:
Une opportunité s'est présentée pour partager un local dans la Zone Industrielle de Carouge avec une autre association. La décision sera voté lors de notre prochain AG le 8 mars 2019.
Le comité aimerait organiser une séance d'information afin d'éclaircir les détails de la proposition avant le vote.
