Sunday reading for today's morning coffee: The Death and Life of Great American Cities, by Jane Jacobs. This is a great book that tries to explain city population dynamics and how it relates to city planning, from an observational point of view. This is, of course, more scientific and realistic than what “idealized common knowledge” about planning.

While the book was written in the sixties with a focus on the US, it is still very valid everywhere.

Today I made an update to my RockZ plugin, so now it uses 3.1.2 by default, and fixed a small bug which fixes using the newest versions with — Grab it while it's fresh from the oven! → github.com/aperezdc/rockz

I don't have a problem with people liking big phones, I just think people who like small ones are EXTREMELY underserved in the current market.

Having to use Ghostscript in the command line to join a few JPEGs into a single PDF with multiple pages is why is not winning: Even for people comfortable with the shell and using tools with random crappy syntax, doing things with “gs” feels like the ninth circle of hell 🙃

The camera I bought second hand just arrived today, and I couldn't be happier: practically it is in mint condition, without a single scratch, it came very well packaged, and the previous owner even threw in a round-the-neck strap which fits the camera.

Of course I gave them an excellent review and sent a personal “thank you” email to spread the . The seller replied immediately with a “Great to know it arrived well, I hope you have a lot of fun with the camera”, which just made my day.

The other day while randomly walking in the neighborhood I randomly spotted a in a small office where people usually just work with their laptops. Cool.

Slavery 2.0 and how to avoid it: a practical guide for cyborgs

ar.al/2019/05/02/slavery-2.0-a

(This is the original English version of an article that I wrote for Issue 32 of the Kulturstiftung des Bundes – The German Federal Cultural Foundation – magazine.)

The battery inside the Polaroid series 600 cartridges actually has two 3.1V cells, wired in series. I do wonder why the diodes are needed between the two connectors of each cell 🤔. Ideas?

Well, I pried one of the cartridges open: officially they are rated 6V, 750mAh. Quite workable, I'd say. Once out of the cartridge, the batteries are remarkably flat, somewhere between 2 and 3mm thick.

Well, it turns out that the from cartridges provide a steady 6.2V — there's many around the house because it felt wrong to just throw them away knowing there's a battery inside. Surely I can turn these old guys into a flat, small package that supplies 5V for DYI stuff. I wonder how long they can power a small ATTiny85. They need to charge the flash for the cameras, so they might still pack a good punch in them 🤔

Ah, the ATTiny85 would need VUSB, somehow I was forgetting :blobpats:

Maybe it's a good time for some soldering. I have a few ATTiny85 and ATmega32u4 laying around which could use proper headers for prototyping and playing a bit with USB HID 🤔
