After more than one year of struggle with Micro M3D printer I decided to buy something bigger, faster, and more reliable. So why not original Prusa i3 MK2, which was on top of the chart (which I can not find anymore) while M3D was at the bottom.

LIFX bulbs are great, but when you just need to turn them on, off or just change brightness, it can be not very comfortable, to do this simple task by app. So I decided to create much simpler way to do this. And then I came across NodeMCU, small development board similar to Arduino with integrated Wi-Fi, with cost of about $5.

Project LIFX: The Light Bulb Reinvented has collected in november 2012 more than $1.3 million (goal set to 100 thousand). It's goal was to manufacture RGB-W LED bulbs LIFX, which you can control via WiFi. Author promised, they'll be ready in march 2013, but path to the final product was more difficult than expected. My 4 bulbs arrived in february 2014, so I've had to wait 15 months, but it was worth it.

Mon, 02/22/2016 - 10:33
Problem: When ajax request has cache off it always creates request with timestamp e.g. `_=1456134256000`, and as it is get parameter, views are called and Drupal cache is not hit. And when cache is on, request is made without timestamp, and browser returns data from it's cache, so it doesn't hit server. What I needed is that script gets past browser cache, but hits Drupal cache.
