If you have a Synology NAS and you're conscious about power protection, it's very likely that you have an UPS connected to it. And this is great. But what about other machines?
If you need to stream your screen to an audience of many users, VLC is right for you!
This is a simple hack for when you're AFK. Gives you pictures of who's trying to login into your PC.
I'm part of the local LUG (Linux Users Group) and despite our association is not exactly a startup (founded in 2001 if I remember well) we're not organized like we would want to be. Bu we're trying!
In fact, among other things, we move away from "closed source" services like slack (a very powerful chat service, with tons of users around the globe) because our goal is to support Open Source Software.
Entering rocket.chat, an open source alternative to slack. And the good news is: it's great! It has everything we possibly need: mobile apps (android and iOS), desktop apps (linux, OSX and windows), bots, private groups, APIs, integration with other services... and Slack import :)
Parent: [piTofono] - intro
The audio part of this project was tricky. The need is very clear: this is an IP phone that automatically places a call when somebody presses a button. The hard part is finding an IP softphone without a GUI.
I found that a lot of softphone apps (andrioid and iOS) are based on [pjlib](http://www.pjsip.org/), so luckily I'm not forced to go Plan-B (configure asterisk for the job). Pjlib supports a lot of protocols, it does everything I need and more. It also has bindings for python, and I'm feeling that Pitofono's final destination will involve some python coding.
Another good point is video support embedded in the library; I still haven't investigated on this.
