i spent half a day today just starting to finally writing about the big projects of the past year.
effectively i only have a few pages now and it's even just a short overview.
how come i feel like i accomplished nothing, but when i actually tackle re-visiting it, it's so much?
it would probably take a month or two to just document the whole battery pack project in its entirety... and i really want to do that before we start to forget things again. it's been a year already and when i look at all the photos so many memories come back.
one of my favourite ones is this. you can't see how incredibly tired i'm in this one. also i almost fell asleep on the floor a few days prior to that because Zoé and i were assembling boards all night.
we put soooo much effort into all this. and it worked. kinda.
gosh i'm still so incredibly pissed that LT just didn't bother to friggin document that their chip just forgets register writes if you don't wait for at least a few cycles after writing. so. much. wasted. time.
@ln Oh wow, how many battery cells are that?
@x44203 just 12. they're 40Ah each though.
@ln 💜💛 cute, and such a cool project
@ln So many times I have regretted not properly documenting something after it was in a stable state.
"I know I knew this once..."
@SetecAstronomy yep. same. i really want to change that... i hope i can make documenting things into a habit :3
@ln I hate that. You put a huge amount of effort into accurate (higher-level) documentation, making sure all the details of it are correct, and after all that .... you're brain is like "but we know all this already...."
