I'm a nonbinary queer person from Germany. I do stuff with #3dprinting, #electronics, #woodworking and since recently #metalworking. Other interests of mine are feminism, queerness and inclusive communities.
I love reading about other people's lives and thoughts. But interacting with them consumes a lot of energy - often more than I have. So don't be surprised if I won't do it that much :)
Soldering a small batch of temperature/humidity sensor breakout boards.
Board tabbing done as per @esden's KiCad panelization tutorial, works perfect! https://diode.zone/videos/watch/28bc7434-2bc1-4448-9c38-89e1dcc79dc4
I hate software projects who at some point completely changed their APIs but in no way whatsoever care about the fact that 80% of the available documentation still references the old ones, without any hint that nothing you read there works anymore.
Last year I had to dig into beaglebones developer mailinglist to find out that what I was trying to do couldn't work anymore, today I found that information only after looking at the mbed source code. Grr.
Since @toni pointed out that these are probably automated CW's by a crossposter I'd like to add:
If you see such a post and would like to boost it - don't. You can answer to the toot, delete the mention and write your own CW for it referring "the toot above", that works quite well. Or write your own toot mentioning the twitter source. But please, don't just spread it further as is with the useless "Birdsite" CW. Thanks.
I see more and more posts with a CW that says only "Twitter Crosspost" or "Birdsite" etc lately.
And when expanding the toot it's most of the time "RT firstname.lastname@example.org: [Tweet about some horrible thing that absolutely needs a CW]"
Please don't do this.
A CW is a CONTENT warning. Posting stuff from twitter is ok, for me such a CW is needless. What needs to be CWed is the CONTENT you post, no matter the source. Substituting the latter with the former is dangerous for people who need CWs.
de trans rights, TSG Reform (+/~)
Die Antidiskriminierungsstelle des Bundes hat zum TSG-Reformentwurf Stellung genommen und relativ knapp alles nötige gesagt:
Behaltet doch einfach das aktuelle Verfahren nach PStG beim Standesamt bei, für inter und trans, ohne ärztl. Bescheinung, Selbsterklärung reicht.
Und dieser ganze Müll im Entwurf den die Cissen sich ausgedacht haben nur um weiter Gewalt ausüben zu können fiele einfach weg weil der dann komplett überflüssig ist.
de trans rights, TSG Reformentwurf (-)
Uff. Die Bundesregierung plant völlig überraschend das TSG zu reformieren und der Entwurf liest sich (neben paar kleinen Verbesserungen) heftig scheiße.
ranting about electronic component datasheets
Also, the peripheral's datasheet has 200 pages and the info on how to initalise the chip is not in one place like one would expect, but no, it is split into multiple short paragraphs in various sections which don't reference each other. And you need to find them all, otherwise you don't have enough info to use it.
This is supposed to be a datasheet not a secret treasure map...
#electronics design lesson of the day: when using an extra voltage regulator to power a peripheral, make that voltage regulators enable line available to the main microcontroller so you can powercycle the peripheral from your code.
Jedes Jahr im Frühling freue ich mich ein oder zwei Wochen über die schöne Blumenwiese die im Garten hinterm Haus wächst. Bis dann, dieses Jahr heute, die Nachbarn im Haus die den Garten gemietet haben den Rasenmährer rausholen und bis zum Herbst dafür sorgen dass nichts existiert was 5mm über den dann kahlen, brauen Boden hinauswächst. :(
