4 - track devices:
5 - alert when never before seen device is plugged-in
6 - report history and trends on when and how-often each
7 device/category is plugged-in, how-long it stays plaugged-in, etc.
8 - daemonize `khatus`, so we don't have to re-launch `X11` to re-launch `khatus`
9 - interoperate with other khatus nodes
10 - prefix machine ID to each data source
11 (What should that ID be? Hostname? Pub key?)
12 - fetch remote data and process locally
13 - what transport to use?
14 - ssh + rsync + cache dumps per some interval?
15 - `A` can setup self penetration testing, by setting up probe of `A` on `B`
16 and fetching results from `B` to `A`
17 - offline mode - quick disable all network-using subsystems (sensors, monitors, etc)
18 - classify each sensor as either "local" or "remote" (what about `iwconfig`, et al?)
19 - store data with rrdtool
20 - some kind of personal calendar thing integration
21 - monitor tracking numbers (17track should be easiest to get started with)
22 - monitor password digests against known leaked password databases
23 - monitor stock prices
24 - monitor some item price(s) at some store(s) (Amazon, etc.)

55 - monitor a git repository
56 - General
57 - total branches
58 - age of last change per branch
59 - change set sizes
60 - GitHub
61 - pull requests
62 - issues
63 - monitor CI

66 - pull/push data from/to other monitoring systems (Nagios, Graphite, etc.)
67 - monitor file/directory age (can be used for email and other messaging systems)
68 - monitor mailboxes for particular patterns/substrings
69 - monitor IRC server(s)/channel(s) for particular patterns/substrings (use `ii`)
70 - monitor iptables log
71 - auto-(un)block upon some threshold of violations
72 - monitor changes in an arbitrary web resource
73 - deletions
74 - insertions
75 - delta = insertions - deletions
76 - monitor/log LAN/WAN configurations (address, router, subnet)
77 - monitor/log geolocation based on WAN IP address
78 - correlate iptables violations with network/geolocation
79 - monitor vulnerability databases

83 - vacation planning optimization
84 - I want to visit a set of places within some time period. Given the
85 current set of prices, a set of constraints (I need to stay some amount
86 of days at each, I must be in X at Y date, etc), which visiting dates for
87 each are cheapest?
88 - browse https://www.programmableweb.com/ for some more ideas
89 - GC trick: instead of actually doing GC, do a dummy run of building a status
90 bar at `BEGIN`, to fill-in the atimes for keys we need, then use the atimes
91 keys to build a regular expression to accept messages only from keys we
92 actually use
93
94 Many of the above will undoubtedly need non-standard-system dependencies
95 (languages, libraries, etc.), in which case - would they be better off as
96 separate projects/repos?
97
98 With all these ideas, it is starting to sound very noisy, but no worries - to
99 quickly and temporarily shut everything up - just kill `dunst` and or toggle
100 the status bar (`Alt` + `B` in `dwm`). For a permanent change - just don't
101 turn-on the unwanted monitors/sensors.
