What about a self-reset circuitry which does not require PC connection? I think it would be very useful to prevent well knwon unpredictable resets/locks of the ESP8266: just self-reset every 24h and you're fine!
But, how to implement it?
I tried by connecting RST to D8 and putting D8 to GND programmatically... but of course it didn't work: who will put RST high then?!?
Maybe a small&cheap external circuit could be built? A solid state relay + capacitor + transistor would do the trick?
As long as the ESP8266 is on, the capacitor is charged; as soon as D8 is put high, relay is triggered and RST put to GND... then in "some manner" which I yet have to figure out, the capacitor brings it back to 3.3V...
