@joeyh btw I finally read about Dec64 and I have to say it's pretty neat but also probably a thing we will never get to use crockford.com/dec64.html

Apparently the Memtest86 coming with the NixOS live image likes to throw in some random errors for more than 4 GiB RAM? Would’ve been nice to know about that before spending this afternoon with a RAM stick binary search and questioning my sanity…

okay, just one more thing: i'm going to try out the WR-WST (they come in 4 to 20 pin) connector for debugging on this board. it's not as small as a tag-connect but the connector is IDC and costs less than 2$ at mouser even. it is also specced for 50 cycles min, which is nice.

i realised that i can just put away projects in progress in large esd-safe bags. ordered some A4 sized bags to put away larger boards yesterday but i can just as easily use them as "project boxes" for a fraction (17c/bag) of the cost!

awful internet pol 

literally nothing i've ever learned in my life has been as shocking or simultaneously Completely Unsurprising to me as learning that the term "incel" was coined by a woman who wanted an inclusive and accepting space to discuss lack of sexual activity due to mental illness and other marginalization
