Ein neues Rezept für euch aus der @PrivacyWeek Sternenküche: Gemüsecurry mit Paprika und Couscous (vegan). Gut geeignet zum Vorkochen und Aufwärmen während der

Can't remember building a Desktop-PC from scratch before, but have experience working with hardware.

Use-cases for “Das Quad-Boot”:
- Natively boot macOS (Hackintosh), FreeBSD, Linux, Proxmox/ESXi, Win 10
- IDEs, shell/admin
- common office work
- hashing/editing/rendering/transcoding
- Light gaming (>5y old titles)

There's reasoning on my parts choice in the bottom comment.

Did I overlook an ncompatibility?

Your feedback is much appreciated!

- Using variables for constraints using the Spreadsheet: Enter a name into a cell, press tab and crashes.
- Trying to launch FreeCAD by double clicking a document, crashes it before it starts drawing any UI elements. You now have an application that doesn't start anymore via opening a document.
- moving cells in the spreadsheet deletes their aliases (deletes the variable, which breaks your model)

Being a beginner I might do things wrong, but it's the UIs job to tell me what and why.

- The included “Help viewer” is just a FreeCAD wiki browser. It lacks a back button. (Why include this at all and not just open the link in a proper browser?)
- Good: It's possible to open the documentation from the Help menu, where a user would naturally look for it.
- To enter a constraint with a referenced variable you need to open three nested dialog boxes. The outermost one cannot be confirmed by pressing return or enter. You must click the button. This should be just *one* prompt.

- Pretty much *any* widget does not behave like they should behave on the OS. That includes resizing windows, palettes, panels, object selection and selection highlight, focus
- Pasting a filename into the file-selection dialogue doesn't work
- crashes while trying to save my very first file
- Upon relaunching FreeCAD I'm presented with a “try to restore the file” dialogue (suggesting this happens often enough to warrant a recovery dialog)
- Recovery didn't work.

UX level FTS11!

I want to 3d-design an object and use it to try learning . My experience so far:

- Downloading FreeCAD took about 10 attempts, since the download link expired before my download was complete and I had to start over. Resuming a download is impossible.
- Start using the application by following a tutorial and trying to replicate what's shown there. (Almost identical version number.)
- My Laptop screen is physically too small (15.4" 1680x1050pt) to get a good overview.

Ich such noch immer nach einem 100% only oder in (D oder AT).
Hab viele Jahre und Projekte und Erfahrung, das letzte Jahr Flutter-only (was auch mein Favorit ist). 😃

Danke euch fuer viele Boosts. 🙏🏻

And in case you were already wondering what this thing is…

It‘s a small, cordless screwdriver by Bosch, titled IXO VI.

Accepts standard 6.35mm (¼ inch) hex bits. Variable speed depending on how deep you pull the trigger.
Banana for scale.

Da die komplett online stattfindet, wird es dieses Jahr leider keine Sternenküche für unsere fleißigen Engel geben. Falls ihr euch aber trotzdem ein bißchen Sternenküche-Feeling nach Hause holen wollt, haben wir im Projekte-Wiki ein paar Rezepte für euch gesammelt:
Einfache Rezepte zum Vorkochen für zuhause sind auch in Planung.

I‘ve also ordered the optional charging cradle so you can just lay it down to recharge when the battery is exhausted.

The Micro-USB-B plug has a satisfying deep sounding click to it and firmly keeps the charging lead attached.

The battery indicator shows you how much battery is left for action. The LEDs are visible quite well without being blindingly bright in a softer lit room.

Ever wondered what the difference between cat.6 and cat.6a gear like a wall jack or patchpanel *actually* is?

Surprisingly little, but essential. Cat.6 networks with the common RJ45 ethernet plugs are specified for up to 1Gbit/s.
Whereas cat.6a goes up to 10 Gbit/s.

Here‘s a simple double patch box for each of the specs. They look almost identical at first glance.

The cat.6 model is in the left in all pictures and the cat.6a model on the right hand side.

I recently got a whiteboard at my home office. Therefor I needed a thing to hold the markers. I couldn‘t find anything online that would be exactly what I had in mind.

- Tip down placement of pens
- held on by a magnet
- uses the strong magnets from defunct 3.5" harddrives, because I have plenty of those

So I “designed”* my own. It‘s not perfect, but it works.

*) Terribly mashed together in OpenSCAD

Very grateful that @ripper did drill a hole for a cable duct in my flat so I can improve my network topology.
As it is common in old buildings the walls are pretty unpredictable when drilling.
In the end we were successful.

Banana for scale.
