Glitchy 7-segment Show more
The parts remain, but how I got here is undefined, because the code has been lost to time
failure mode, usb portable hard drives Show more
so WD's USB hard drives are pogo pinned to an exterior USB PCBA via screws?
cost reduction and probably just being annoying to shuckers at the same time?
only leaning this because the PCB corroded over. it has a new lease on life after being soaked in isopropanol~

the choices have privileges embedded in them. please fill in for those who don't have them at all or are at risk of losing them
complaining about network/vlans/iot Show more
blocking a bunch of hs100/110s from reaching the outside world is nice, but having a distinct vlan splits the broadcast domain; the mobile app complains that it can't find the plugs
one way around this seems to be a small relay daemon that repeats the messages across every vlan.. that i don't feel like auditing/running as root on my router
i'll just shove these on a separate ssid and lock them down heavily for now
Hit publish on some writing involving the fume extractor's fan (has sparks): https://open.konspyre.org/post/2018-10-12-inductive-kickback-case-fans/
we've got @firstname.lastname@example.org's SICK video on Diode Zone now! https://diode.zone/videos/watch/78b0d339-a21c-4160-a4b9-8d1bed5d47cd (yes I'm thrilled i get to say that)
PeerTube server invitation Show more
Hi Mastodon friends, that server I've been working on is finally open. I'm trying to make it a home for original content and somewhat centered around creativity, electronics, music, that sort of thing. I've been wanting an alternative to the dominant engineering culture on YouTube.
I call it Diode Zone, and you can read more about it: https://diode.zone/about/instance
If you'd like an account, send me a DM!

(+) case fan, having fun Show more
driving another case fan directly on one coil, surprised that it kinda spins and doesn't lock up completely~
no blocking diode at the input, so the coil also backdrives the IC for switching (but can't activate the second coil)
extra nice: the coil kickback ends up on the ICs rail too

🎶 Another project down, 99 magnets/suction cups* to go 🎶
* more like 10ish
(letting the docs stew on the various sites so that I can spot errors)
software license, github bug Show more
Code so bad that GitHub has rebranded it under a NOASSERTION license

The story repeats.
The culture blinks.
It refuses to change.
project photography, breadboards Show more
my m4/3 with its prime lens has been borrowed for a trip, so i've been loaned an entry-level aps-c dslr in its stead
its.. not bad?
(after digging around for an hour, trying to turn off all the weird training wheels)
