It is really hard to fit ipv6 and a gui into 4MB flash. Pick one.

the current winner, btw, for a low cost wifi device is the esp8266
chip, which people are programming in LUA!!? to do various IOt things.
I am told it is available for much less than 3 dollars in qty.

I recently met with the man behind digital-loggers.com  - they make
lots of neato devices, like the power controllers I use in every
remote location:


turns out that A) he was aware of bufferbloat - B) was deeply
concerned about updatability in the face of security problems - his
products are very remote updatable and hardened against attacks in
multiple ways, and C) has openwrt in that product above - all the
switch and power and video io is on an atmel, but the ethernet and
wifi are on a tiny atheros board....

... and he will probably be using the esp8266 in a string of new
products in the future.

I ended up buying an extra epc5 to play with, as I've really wanted
ipv6 on these things for the longest time.... and smokeping and

(I would really like to find a C or go or rust version of smokeping and mrtg)
