Woohoo, my two extra ESP32s arrived, and just in time for my four-day weekend! Going to be doing a bunch of mucking around with MQTT.

There we go, my ESP32/e-ink setup is done! This one is living in the office so we can see the current outdoor and indoor temperatures at a glance. I chucked the code up on GitHub because there was a bit of trial and error involved: https://github.com/VirtualWolf/featherwing-temperature-displayer. This is using CircuitPython not MicroPython, and there's fewer resources available and fewer people using it, it seems.

My additional ESP32 bits arrived today as well! I had to solder the headers onto the ESP32-S2 myself, and while it's not an amazingly neat job, I think it should get the job done.

Hell yeah, this weekend's project was recreating my Pi Sensor Reader (https://github.com/VirtualWolf/pi-sensor-reader) in MicroPython on my shiny new ESP32s! It's done (https://github.com/VirtualWolf/esp32-sensor-reader) and I've currently got it running and posting updates to a copy of my website running on the Mac mini, to test how reliable it is.

YAY my ESP32s arrived! They're smaller than I thought they'd be (and arrived faster than I was expecting, they only shipped from the US six days ago).

Got my little Raspberry Pi-powered air quality sensor and display up and running!

This is a photo of an Xbox One that's had a full teardown and thermal paste replacement, and it was a smashing success. \o/ I think the last time I applied thermal paste to anything would have been something like 15 years ago. The fans were getting really noisy when doing 4K/HDR gaming and given we're getting the new Xbox Series X tomorrow, I figured I'd fix it now and in the worst case scenario that I broke it, I wouldn't be without an Xbox for long. :P (Also I didn't want to sell it with it being that noisy).

I have of course updated my little Pi display to pull data from the Powerwall, and added the battery charge percentage and whether it's charging or discharging. 😎

Updated my Raspberry Pi e-ink temperature display to be easier to read, and it also now includes our power consumption and production!
