I don't know if you are like me, but for some activities, contemplating his/her own progresses is a very good motivation for continuing. If the best way to measure progress is certainly to achieve more and more quality (in result), second best way is to achieve more and more quantity (of training). If this is … Continue reading A motivation tool for running: the Strava tracker
You all remember that I have installed a freezer monitoring system in the freezer of my country house, thanks to a nice Raspberry Pi Zero.

For some Jedi Masters, soldering electronic cards may be a piece of cake, but believe me, for a software … Continue reading On my way to soldering supremacy?
