ESP32 Capsense works great!

Also in this apartment and with this router Steam Link just doesn't work on WiFi, *at all*. Meanwhile all other devices are fine. I don't trust the router that's in here at all.
Today I am releasing the first version of my livecoding system, alive!
This is a release-candidate, since it has only run on two different PCs so far, and I need more data to trust that it works at all. There is now a Windows build that should make running it there a breeze.
Let me know if you tried it and whether it did or didn't run! ;)
Info, installation instructions, and tutorial in the docs:
This bugs me soooo much, and it clearly exposes how hostile the platforms using this kind of language have become: a button labelled "see less often" without an option of "turn off" was *not* designed with the user in mind. It couldn't exist without a complete disregard for user wants and needs.
So this one was worth a cross-platform RT from hellsite:
"thinking about how software companies slowly chip away at the idea of consent by turning every "no" into "not right now," every "stop this" into "do this less often," every "i don't want that" into "maybe later""
Managed to get alive dependencies installed in a reproducible way on windows! This is great news, it means I will be able to distribute a ready-to-go binary version soon. This should lower barrier-of-entry significantly for Windows users. Installing Lua and Luarocks there is hell, meanwhile on Mac and Linux its just in your package manager...
Started writing some developer guides to give more concrete, exemplary information to go with the technical documentation:
I was thinking about doing some little livestreams on my YT channel in the next days, soldering, chitchat and the like, maybe some music as well, but it looks like I need at least 1k subscribers to do so. (I don't have a webcam, so mobile is my only option :/ )
I'm just 22 subs short of 1k, if you feel like you want to support my channel, go and subscribe!

Got some decent error handling / reporting in alive now :)
Quarantine is a great time to get into baking: Use stuff you probably have, and often don't use to make extra food!
We've started some sourdough and have been trying out different things in the last week (Focaccia, and today some Flammkuchen) :)
The Focaccia dough needs some work still, but maybe our starter just wasn't ready yet. Let's see how the Flammkuchen goes!
TIL that my avatar is also an ancient pythagorean symbol for monism... I am ok with that.
