@NYTimes obits: 136 males, 66 females

Today, July 31, there were 2 male and 2 female featured obituaries in the New York Times. Previously (catching up, on vacation!), July 28, there were 2 male and 2 female featured obituaries in the NYT.  On July 27, there were 1 male and 1 female featured obituaries in the NYT.  Since I started tracking it here, that is 136 males featured and 66 females featured.

(I started tracking the obits here on May 14, but I’ve missed days when on travel. On vacation, these are the DC and Seattle versions of the NYT – I don’t know if the obits published vary by region.)

solar pi zero w camera

I decided to try and make a homebridge camera from a solar powered raspberry pi zero w.  First I tried building homebridge with these directions – I tried different versions and builds, but both ran out of memory on the raspberry.  Then I decided to go the docker route from these directions.

I got some errors in the build:

Setting up aufs-dkms (4.9+20161219-1) ...

Homebridge is up and running- I can’t find it from the iphone, so I’ll have to work on it a bit more.  Getting weather might be the first plug-in (I don’t have the camera installed yet, but that is on the list).

Oh, for solar power, I ended up just going with solar charger / battery (the Ayyie 25 Amp-hour).  I tested out my (several years old, much used and abused) 10 Amp-hour (no solar charging) and got about 36 hours of raspberry life.
