Garage Door Opener v4
Garage door opener v4 is complete. This time Raspberry Pi-based and on Ethernet. And on network-managed PDU. #golang

My niece calls the iPad "baby" because they only use it to FaceTime and then she sees herself on it and says "Baby'". Hence device's name.

OMG none of this Swift code is fmt'ed. My eyeballs! #golang pains. (At Swift meetup...)

RT @Tsalmoth: The new Weird Al video is aimed at grammar nerds, takes a swipe at Alanis, and references LiveJournal:
