I like the Windows 10 Robot emoji, it reminds me of SDF Macross.

And here’s another one that I like but I don’t remember the source of the image.

The best robot emoji would logically have to be the best robot:

Lock rant… not sure if this is the hacker in me, or me been “done” with stuff lately

Soo, new house… I ultimately didn’t go rfid locks because I couldn’t find anything that worked besides the townsteel which is 350$…. And extremely hard to justify when I can just get a plain digital keypad lock for 50$… which results in the same “no key” lifestyle
(And I need 3x locks)

So I bought 3x of the digital keypad locks….

They are likely going to each come with a different key, in addition there is going to be a set of 3 doorknobs (keyed alike, but previous owners keys)

So I need to re-key 6x locks

Not that big of a deal, I’ll call around… I’ll find a locksmith and I’ll go the extra step of pulling the lock cylinders out of the locks, and bring them to him… so it should be like an hour of work at the most right?

2-3 places have quoted me at 250-350$

I’ve never pinned a lock but I know bits and pieces, I figured I’d pay 30-50 bucks and let someone who can do it in their sleep take care of it

But

35$ later and I have all the tools I’ll need, standard pins and even 2-3 security pins for each cylinder, and a pretty decent understand of what I’m doing

How later will probably go

Speaking of frustrations with locks. I’m staying at a best western and the locks on the doors are that kind of poor design that absolutely will not work with my xM1. I had to resort to my backup which is a magic gen1a fob on my car keys.

On the upside my roommate loves that I can clone the hotel key to the fob on his car keys.

Yea my Xm1 was kinda specifically for hotels… but it’s seeming less and less likely that the Xm1 will be up to that task…
I should probably upgrade to a flex at some point

I am seriously considering getting a flexM1 because of it. I want to do more traveling like this so it seems like a good idea.

After so many years working on this… I’m finally upgraded with proper Apex Mega Spectrum prototypes.

Just love how you’re some sort of black market pharmacy, fully stuffed with anaesthetics and seemingly tons of needles as well :smile:

Not where where to post this … at work the proxy detects the images hosted on the forum as part of a third-party sharing website and blocks the images.

It’s because the URLs contains forum-dangerousthings-com.s3.us-west-002.backblazeb2.com so it’s detected as part of Backblaze B2 service.

Is there a way to change this, so the URL for images is similar to https://forum.dangerousthings.com/bb/original/3X/d/c/dc712daa3698696b770743c6cdd11349ca50e705.jpeg and redirected behind the scenes on the webserver (with a rewrite plugin) , so no backblazeb2.com part and a /bb in the path ?

Thats tear worthy

It would require active proxying on our server side… like redirection won’t work because, well, it will just redirect your browser to go get the image from backblaze and your proxy will block it again… so our server would have to go fetch the image from backblaze and feed it through to your browser… and i’m not sure this is possible with a simple nginx config.
