Dear electronics fediverse,

is there a way to re-moist the solder paste? Normally the boards don't wait long between pasting and placing, but with human pnp and big boards it takes hours...

PSA: If you're having trouble getting a MCU feature to work, make sure your MCU supports that feature.

I just spent four days trying to enable TIM6 on a chip that doesn't have a TIM6...

Dear @gitlab, after reading this, I am ashamed to be using your product:

gitlab.com/gitlab-com/www-gitl

We will stop using it as soon as we can manage to and I will stop recommending you to others. Unlike you, we don’t associate with folks incompatible with our values.

Shame on you.

oh this looks like fun!

The sandsifter audits x86 processors for hidden instructions and hardware bugs, by systematically generating machine code to search through a processor's instruction set, and monitoring execution for anomalies. Sandsifter has uncovered secret processor instructions from every major vendor; ubiquitous software bugs in disassemblers, assemblers, and emulators; flaws in enterprise hypervisors; and both benign and security-critical hardware bugs in x86 chips.

With the multitude of x86 processors in existence, the goal of the tool is to enable users to check their own systems for hidden instructions and bugs.

I have a question to electronics makers: What are some reliable PCB houses in Europe that you worked with?

I have mixed experiences with Aisler (long lead-time) and heard good things about Multi-Circuit-Boards (though expensive).

Boost/RT pls.

It is quite impressive when OpenSSL calls you out on your (lack of) security shit.
