So after this morning’s meeting, we have decided to go with a 6 layer PCB for the second pass of the board. Putting 10 lbs of stuff in a 1lb bag is pushing the limits of physics and compromising ground layers. Sad, but it has to be done.

Building the most minimalist buildroot I can for an RPI3+ to test a theory.

In 1985, I had the privilege to be the project engineer on this machine. It had a VAX 11/780 class CPU chip, 25MB MFM drive, and the monitor resolution was 1024x864. We also wrote a windowing system and presentation layer called UIS (User Interface Services). This was our third machine (VAXStation I and VAXStation II were the 2 previous), and we got a VAX into a shoebox. This sold really well, got me a great promotion, and the eye of the CEO. I became one of his goto engineers. Good times.

Can you hear me say your name–forever?
Can you see me longing for you–forever?
Would you let me touch your soul–forever?
Can you feel me longing for you–forever, forever?

I know the light grows darker down below
But in your eyes, it's gone before you know
This is the moment of just letting go
This is the moment of just letting go

Gotta drive the wife to a post surgery PT appt. My son is afew blocks from there, so meeting up for coffee and chit chatting.

My Apple watch tells me to go take a walk and breath deep. THe Air quality index is 180 outside. I think the watch is trying to kill me.

I love when people join mastodon and then complain that they call them toots, not posts, like they own the place.

Air quality index is now up to 129 here. Cough Cough

Took my wife to a Dr. appt (she cannot drive as she is on pain meds), and my eyes are burning from all of this smoke in the air. Make it 200 degF and you have hell.

Ok, Hamacher Wine's 2015 Pinot is the schiznic. Bought a number of bottles of it (filling the cellar up)

Took my wife to a manicure appt, because she is still on pain killers from her surgery, so she cannot drive. So killing time at the Hamacher Wines tasting room having a great glass of their reserve Pinot
