Im Büro kann ich mich als Schredder nützlich machen!

all right; trying to get started with Mastodon; looking forward to a less public account to post my messier desk pictures to~

and yeah, it took me roughly a year to pick up my confidence again and just finish up things.
but now i'm doing that and it makes me incredibly happy.

i like this. and in case it happens again, i can look back and remember: i can do this.

so, long story short, this completely wiped out any trust i had in my embedded skills for a good while because i just didn't know what to trust anymore. that meant that so many projects lingered and i feared completing or even testing them. which created negative-feedback again.

the whole ordeal started pretty much a year ago with some delayed and royally fucked up boards from $pcbhouse which must not be named because i'm *so* sick of them.

i don't want to rant about the "we just ship you boards, we don't care that you need enough working ones" again.

I dusted off the battery management system today and cleaned up my MSP430 code a bit.

forgot i had to hit the "Resurrect" switch for it to boot, but now it just seems to work. i'll add CAN tomorrow.

this has been one hell of a lesson how some things can fuck you over /hard/.

On the back there's four screws holding a very thin metal sheet in place with the rubber feet. This metal part feels very flimsy, but also doesn't compromise stiffness. That's a nice way to shave off a little bit of weight and cost.

This solder pot is a very good lesson in cutting costs w/o sacrificing value. No sharp edges on the outside one can touch, PE properly connected and even a fuse inside.

The painted metal is also very sturdy.

reminder to please take care of yourselves, that things will turn alright, and I know that things can be grim, so try to enjoy the little things.

made a last minute MNT Reform motherboard revision today, to accomodate for a 7cm long chonker of a LS1028A CPU/RAM upgrade module to be released at some point next year by rbz.es & us.

Often I need some <thing> to exist.

Currently it does not, or is unaffordable.

I am certainly able to create it, but I'm not sure if I *want* to create it.

anyways, i solved the problem with the BQ25792 i had yesterday thanks to someone on the ti e2e forum. now i can do constant current/constant voltage on the OTG output :3

next i'll focus on getting the FUSB307 running, then i'll have the basics covered and the rest is software :D
