WebCam shutter by 3d printer

Older webcams deserve a shutter too, so someone isn’t watching when they shouldn’t ;). My attempts to build an exactly round, perfectly fitting lid were unfortunately not immediately successful (FDM printers rarely manage to deliver exactly round results. Most of the time they become slightly oval or at least not completely round when there are thin edges. Thus, I then decided to take a different approach and built a push-on design from ...

Sailfish OS (Verla): Now available for all

. Starting today, the first update from 4.1 to 4.2 is available for all Sailfish OS users.

Interesting for me was how well ...

Sailfish OS: Major apps, services and new section at PW3d

My new daily driver, the Sony Xperia 10 II with Sailfish OS got a nice cover and little by little I find more and more interesting and important apps for Sailfish OS (often called SFOS). Since the system doesn’t contain any bloatware and leaves practically all decisions to the user, you naturally have to take care of the corresponding software installations yourself in order to be able to activate one or the other feature. To keep this as ...

If my website sucks, you do not need to visit it.
Have a nice day and think about how much you have payed to visit it? Nothing...
How many ads do you see at it? None.

How much money do I earn from it? Nothing.
Does it cost me something to host it? Hell yeah.

I do not see why I should provide it to you to be insulted?
