If you are using Home Assistant, either via a virtual machine or directly on a desktop computer, the best way to shut down Home Assistant without causing inconsistencies is to gracefully shut down the host.
Are you having issues with Tuya integration on Home-Assistant? Well, unfortunately, some versions of HA cause it to stop receiving updates to sensors/devices (lights, air condition, etc.).
Most of the time, reloading the integration via the HA interface solves the problem, but what if it’s needed a few times a day?
Until it’s fixed, I recommend to you add a reload automation to this integration (or any other for that matter, that misbehaves as such).
As I wrote here before, the ESP8266 is one of the best controllers for simple tasks. It’s cheap, reliable, and easy to code with Arduino.
Sometimes, even great things as this chip can cause a bit of a headache, like this time around, when I got “connection refused” error when I tried to open an HTTP connection to one of my services.
Help Google Image Search detect the license for your images with RDFa’s. If you host images on your site, and you want to specify a license for them use Google recommended RDFa (Resource Description Framework in Attributes – a W3C recommendation) in your HTML. This tip will explain how to do it.
Have you ever left your computer on for doing some tasks like downloading, calculating, video processing, or any other continuous task only to find out that Windows decided to run an update and disrupted anything you were doing?
Well? that happened to me more than I wanted, so I looked for a creative solution for this problem.
If you ever had to work with controllers or microprocessors, you’ve probably come across the need to convert 2 cells of 16 bits numbers into a single 32bit integers. On some controllers, the registers are assigned in 16-bit cells, and if you want to store anything larger than 65,535 you’ll need to convert it.
I’ve been working with Oracle’s SQL Developer for years through its various versions. This tool has become better over the years and improvements can be noticed from version to version. None the less there is one bug that returns every now and then, and it doesn’t seem to be version specific. This is the super slow editing or typing in the IDE SQL code windows, this in fact, in some cases prevent and interfering with our work. How to solve this irritating issue?
