@janboddez There are a few individuals and companies who are batch-submitting “vulnerability reports” that rely on DB read access. Plugins storing any kind of secrets in WP options are all targeted.

I do understand the benefits of encrypting those secrets but that would require asking site owners to update wp-config.php which is the only “safe” place to store secrets in WP. Imagine each plugin asking for its own constant…

Something enabled the default webserver on ports 80 and 8081 of our home QNAP NAS which prevented the my reverse proxy container from starting on the same port. Maybe enabling home folders does this?

It took 5 days for my Heltec Lora v3 router node to use up 6.6Wh of one 18650 cell at 5% air utilization rate (one telemetry message per minute). That brings it to 6.6W / 5days /24h or 0.055W (15mA@3.7V) on average.

Importantly, this node was also powering a sensor which was doing the power measurements every minute.

Now I'll be doing a reference measurement without the INA219 and with zero telemetry.

Finally added a basic dark mode to my 10 year old hand-rolled WordPress theme with no CSS post-processing.

Turns out `tar` can’t incrementally update encrypted archives (makes sense), and it also can’t update an unencrypted archive with just the changes so you’re responsible for ensuring the full chain or snapshot archives which isn’t feasible.

Block-level snapshots are nice, though. The network transfer is more consistent when compared to file level transfers.

Couldn’t get the EQ12 (n100 CPU) to run from a 30W PoE splitter and a TP-Link TL-SG108PE switch. The cheaper 12V/1.2A splitters would actually turn off while this one stayed on and wouldn’t boot. Didn’t have a monitor to check the console output.

@oivaeskola Yes, since HomeAssistant supports running the full “operating system” inside Virtualbox (same as Hass.io) so you can install all the add-ons (basically Docker containers with some meta data) through the built-in tooling. You will need to forward the serial port to Virtualbox machine for the zigbee dongle, but everything else should be possible to configure from the UI.
