if you've written some story and marginalized voices are critiquing it, you should be interested in what they have to say and listen/signal boost instead of getting defensive.

everyone has internalized shit and if people want to point out how it's coded in your work, that can help you unlearn it. this discussion is valuable to you

I made a plugin for easy export of BOM and placement files from KiCad for JLCSMT, check it out:

don't forget that nearly every enjoyment you have outside of work is because someone fought for it. that every benefit is because someone fought for it.

this language is designed to fool you into thinking that moral reasoning has a place in capitalism. it does not. it's only purpose would be to placate you. so refuse to be placated

have you ever noticed how every argument for a company to do any little thing that would be good and right ends with "and it will improve profits in the long run" ?

that's because every argument has to be framed in the profit motive, or it will not happen

your daily reminder that a company is incapable of making a moral decision if it won't make them money

I'm not dead - I'm just writing my thesis at the moment. I will return once I'm done being a student*.

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:

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.

A Kazakhstani commie running a dark net research paper piracy website has done more for the free flow of information than all of my professors combined.

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.
