Similar to the last post I did on a mobile game, this time again is another online battle game from Baton and QuizKnock — Tonguess (Android, iOS). In short, Tonguess is a word version of Bulls and Cows, once played by members of QuizKnock in a video.
本文又是一篇从 Telegram 的投票评语里面引申出来博文。不知不觉发现这一话题写了很长，就索性再添上一些写进这里。我们不争论我们是否「应该」在中文里面用弯引号云云。如果没有硬性规定，按个人偏好就好。
Update 6 July 2020: Added alternative method using Riru Location Report Enabler.
Galaxy Wearable Store (GWS) is the app store for Galaxy wearable devices of Samsung. GWS is strongly region-dependent, just like other aspects of the device (you have to do some software hacking for a device purchased in one region to use Samsung Pay in another region). Being able to run with non-Samsung devices means that it cannot rely on the region-of-sale on the phone (and for some reason they didn’t choose to use the region of the device), GWS decided to use the region of your SIM card on the device to determine the store location.
Title should have explained it all. A simple Python script to monitor if a certain device has connected to the router via Wi-Fi, and send notifications accordingly. You can use this script for whatever purpose you want1I used it to monitor whether my parent has left home when I am “seemingly asleep”. , though probably you might not be able to find one like most of others.
To use this script, you need SSH access to the router, something in your LAN that is always running (in my case, a Raspberry Pi), and the list of MAC addresses to monitor. In this example, I am using an Asus RT-AC1200GU as the router. Other brand or make might need a different command.
Yet another post that has something to do with Telegram. Yeah, I know, but there’s never such thing as too much when you talk about blog articles.
A lot of people around my Telegram circle has been maintaining their own channels, and a lot of them has had a few hundreds or even thousands of subscribers. I think that I may make one too, but I also don’t want to give up with my Twitter account which is more accessible to search engines. So why not sync my tweets to the channel? Given the openness of both Telegram and Twitter, this shouldn’t be much of an issue.
In both my previous and recent projects, I have been working with tags (metadata) of music files. One of the reason being I am rather particular about having a nicely organised library with all tag data aligned to the same format. Until recently while I was seeking for a solution to read and write tags of (potentially) all music formats1I only have MP3, FLAC, AIFF and M4A in my library, so that’s kinda all for me., and I encountered FFmpeg, the Swiss Army Knife of media processing.
FFmpeg has always been my go-to solution for processing media programmatically or in batch, and I have recently found the way to write into the tags of music files using it. The way of doing so might be a little verbose as everything have to fit into the command line interface with other components.
Weeks ago when I was playing around with the docs of EFB and the Crowdin translation widget, I realized that the default theme for Sphinx — Alabaster isn’t really doing well in term of translation. It seems like the author isn’t really confident on that (or simply didn’t care since 4 years ago).
As the theme itself is open source, and Sphinx is flexible enough, couldn’t we just translate it ourselves? It turns out that things are not that complicated.
This is my 6th article on Telegram, the IM platform of my preference. In this article I’m going to introduce about how I wrote the integration tests for my EFB Telegram Master channel — a Telegram interface for EFB, using a userbot-like strategy.
To get started, you need to have a bot ready to be tested, and a Telegram client app key that is registered with your account. While alternative tools are available, we will be using Telethon and PyTest in this article.
