Python musical update

Based on my procedural music project I had been working on here. I've made some improvements. Abstracted the playback some, can now play through numpy, oss, or pyaudio. The plan is to default to the best playback method, right now it just uses the first one that seems available. I did this because I got dozens of complaints about using just pyaudio. Can save audio to wave files, other formats would be nice but are not worth my time right now. It's got a few example files to give some idea of usage, but no documentation.

Google code project page is up:

Download link:

Examples include:
arpeggiated chord progression
randomly generated lead (with chorus effect)
basic example of waveform generating

If you want to take a listen without running it, I saved the audio output of examples 1 and 2...

DIY Solar Powered LoRa Repeater (with Arduino)

In today's video I be built a solar powered LoRa signal repeater to extend the range of my LoRa network. This can easily be used as the basis for a LoRa mesh network with a bit of extra code and additional repeaters. Even if you're not into LoRa networks all of the solar power hardware in this video can be used for any off-the-grid electronics projects or IoT nodes!  

A Lesson in LoRa Module P2P Standards (or the Lack Thereof)

I got a handful of LoRa modules from Reyax a while back, the RYLR896 model based on Semtech SX1276 chips. Instead of using an SPI interface they operate over UART using a small set of AT commands. This made them easier to work with since I didn't have to dig too deeply into a bunch of SPI registers and Semtech specs and they communicate between one another really well. My Espruino JS module for them is available here , which I've used in a few of my YouTube videos. And more recently I've written a MicroPython module for them here .   (A pair of Reyax RYLR896  modules) But, always being on the lookout for different boards and platforms I eventually ended up with a few Maduino LoRa boards. These are cool because they have an Arduino-compatible ATmega328 and the same Semtech LoRa chip (via an RFM95) both integrated on one board. They weren't compatible with Espruino or MicroPython though, and they used the SPI interface instead of AT commands so I knew I would need to lo

Always Secure Your localhost Servers

Recently I was surprised to learn that web browsers allow any site you visit to make requests to resources on localhost (and that they will happily allow unreported mixed-content ). If you'd like to test this out, run an HTTP server on port 8080 (for instance with python -m http.server 8080 ) and then visit this page. You should see "Found: HTTP (8080)" listed and that's because the Javascript on that page made an HTTP GET request to your local server to determine that it was running. Chances are it detected other services as well (for instance if you run Tor or Keybase locally). There are two implications from this that follow: Website owners could potentially use this to collect information about what popular services are running on your local network. Malicious actors could use this to exploit vulnerabilities in those services. Requests made this way are limited in certain ways since they're considered opaque , meaning that the web page isn't able
