“It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas” – well, certainly here in the Scargill household it is. I’m up early, checking out the Christmas sales on Banggood and GearBest (if I’m missing out, please do let me know!).
I’ve just sent off an AliExpress shopping list including yet another spiffy case for my Pocophone F1, some new bargain LED E27 (screw) 9w lamps and the tiniest yet Bluetooth in-ear phones (QC Q29), a nice cheap wall display and lots more. As requested – link to the cheap display here..
See past the break for IkalLogic and Itead Sonoff updates.
Meanwhile Mr Shark has just sent in this useful looking link for helping to get rid of unwanted rubbish on Debian (Raspbian) – looks like the site hasn’t been administered since 2005 but worth a look anyway.…current version of Deborphan is 126.96.36.199 and the last copyright notice was 2008. https://debian-administration.org/article/134/Removing_unnecessary_packages_with_deborphan
This link https://linoxide.com/linux-how-to/remove-orphaned-packages-ubuntu/ refers to a graphical front end for Deborphan for Ubuntu systems. Take care when running any such tools.
I found this on the raymii.org blog (thanks Remy):
Meanwhile I’ve a bumper crop of Christmas presents including a new IkaLogic SP209i 9-channel logic analyser. I have their previous model and so I have high hopes for this one. More detail on that later but here’s a link to their site if you’re interested. https://www.ikalogic.com/
I also have some new products from ITEAD (Sonoff etc.) https://www.itead.cc/
If you’ve not seen it yet, check out the Sonoff S26 mains power socket. I have the S26G, UK plug and socket. Last night I hooked it into the ITEAD EweLink Android App… and Amazon Alexa. All working, no problem. I’ll do a separate blog entry to do this justice.
