Aftermath
Trying to explore the debris fields and take screenshots before the Thargoids warp in and attack me was quite a challenge!

Search & Rescue
Using hatch breaker limpets to open an escape hatch and collect the escape pods

TIL there's a romhack for the original Gameboy Tetris that adds modern features like holding, ghost pieces, next 3 upcoming pieces, etc. romhacking.net/hacks/5813/

Recently bought a 5 to use with my desktop.

Now I can automatically decrypt the filesystem just by plugging in the key during boot, and login / sudo just by tapping the button! No more typing passwords, but everything is still encrypted and secure.

A little disappointed that Intel Macs can't use it with FileVault during boot, but the Mac already has a fingerprint reader so I wasn't planning to use the YubiKey with it anyway.

Migrated my server to the new Home Assistant OS ARM64 image running in KVM on my 4.

I was previously using a docker installation on that is no longer officially supported, and various things stopped working properly recently.

Haven't noticed any performance difference between docker and the virtual machine, and now it's officially supported and much easier to maintain!

Games I played in April:

⛳️ Walkabout Mini Golf

🏰 Townsmen VR
🎵 Synth Riders
🏠 Spacefolk City
🛠 Arcsmith
🎳 Premium Bowling

I recently bought some Game Boy DMG-01 colored buttons from SakuraRetroModding on Etsy for my Anbernic RG351V and they look amazing!

Input/Output Error
The SD card I use in my Raspberry Pi finally wore out this week after running non-stop for almost 2.5 years. Managed to move everything safely to a new "endurance" card, hopefully it will last longer!

🤯
I was just trying to troll @theskuz with a crazy swing, and somehow ended up getting a hole in one!

Fitbit Sense ⌚️
The Fitbit Ionic I've been wearing for several years got recalled last week, apparently the battery could overheat and burn users. Time for an upgrade!

The Sense feels a lot lighter and more comfortable than the Ionic, but it's going to take a little while to get used to not having any physical buttons.

M5StickC-Plus AeroGarden Monitor

A little experiment with a controller: ultrasonic distance sensor measures water level, and infrared thermometer measures the temperature.

Everything gets sent to Home Assistant via MQTT!
