Grafana in kiosk mode on Pi Zero W

Per my earlier post, I’ve been using a Pi Zero W with Chromium in a kiosk mode to display Grafana on a TV. Not sure if something changed with Chromium in the December 2020 release, but it wasn’t working when I tried to do a rebuild. So, I found an alternative and I’ve been having […]

Funky Teams Audio Conferencing behavior

Added some new users recently who do not have phones. I’m accustomed to adding an AD Attribute to the Proxy Addresses section for the SIP:user@domain.com attribute when they have a phone. Because these users don’t, I didn’t. Apparently, the configuration we have requires this for the Teams Audio Conferencing details to even populate on the […]

The future of this blog

I have an itch to start writing, so I think I’ll do it here. As a first step, I’ve removed the Amazon links. They weren’t doing anything, anyway. What will I write about? I’m not entirely sure.

Setting up k3s on a single RPi4

First, I started with this tutorial: https://github.com/mhausenblas/kube-rpi This gets you there most of the way, but I […]

How to create a file drop in Teams

Actually, this is to create a file folder in Teams that will move files to another (private) location whenever a new file is dropped in there. Why would you want to do that? You might want to get files in a semi-secure manner but then not have them live in a viewable location. Think, budgets […]

The RPi Zero W is…ok…

First of all, I have not returned to using the Chromecast for my Grafana visualization. I didn’t elaborate on this, but my previous post was driven by a change to Grafana visualization that effectively broke the ChromeCast Kiosk server I was using. The recommended solution was to use a proxy for displaying the iFrame, or […]

Add an alias to zsh in MacOS

I found this more difficult to locate than it needed to be. If you want to add an alias to zsh in MacOS, say something like ‘ll’, it’s pretty simple. If you’re comfortable with everyone on that system having the change, ‘sudo nano /etc/zshrc’ Add a line at the end – alias ll=’ls -al’ Save […]
