...when you realize the camera makers implement PTP so differently that the code you wrote actually doesn't do anything with your other camera.. priceless.

The result after today: a crude but working python script, using pysimplegui/libgphoto2/Pillow, able to receive the raw files from my 40D frame and display the embedded jpeg. Guess I'll call it a day :)

Got a bit fed up that there's apparently no usable free camera tethering app so let's see if I can write one. Libgphoto2 seems to support both my cameras, I wonder if tethered shooting will work with them from python.

It's cold, windy and rainy but to hell with it, still date morning with the Mrs :) to make our day start nicer...

Thank you all for the suggestions, now I have a couple things to try out. :)

Is Authy considered a safe/better alternative to the Google Authenticator? If yes, in which configuration (e.g. with multi-device)? If not, why?

The darkest dark pattern I've seen so far is the Windows 10 installer's way of forcing you to log in via a Microsoft account. Buried deep under various misleading menus, you have the possibility to still use a local account, but you most likely won't find it. Whoever came up with this idea, I'd like to have a serious talk with that person...

Once again I'm experiencing a serious drop of interest towards social media. Maybe this has to do something with shifting towards being a parent and realizing what matters more for me. Thinking about how I can teach my kid, once old enough, to avoid it as much as possible.

I'm back at home again :) Prague was amazing (and extremely hot/humid). Enjoyed the company a lot.

I'm traveling to Prague in two weeks :) Haven't been abroad since the last 4 years or so, hope it's going to be a nice trip. Meeting a bunch of people from various countries first time IRL, after playing the same online game together for a long time.

When your daughter hugs you and says "I love daddy" the first time :)

Experimenting with Nextcloud and external storage hosted on minio - looks nice and easy so far. Like a personal Amazon S3.

Some people at work really demotivate me a lot. Sometimes they make me think I should just walk out.

With , is there a "standard" way to purge old entries (posts) from the database? Say, anything older than 2-3-4 weeks, to keep database from growing forever.

I have a special skill of getting sick on the first day of vacation.
