I think M.2 is really cool for modules. I hope this finds further adoption, having a common interface and pinout is certainly great to have for products and is neat for prototyping too.

Meet : a new ecosystem of interchangeable processor and carrier boards. Using the M.2 standard, you can now easily swap out microcontroller processor boards to various peripherals and functionalities for rapid and project changes. bit.ly/2TebzWq

The wood guy just turned up today with my order without calling before hand or any sort of notice, so I had to carry these ~200kg worth of wood all by myself into the second floor x.x
2.5m long super heavy wood slabs are not the great to carry on your own I tell you.

I said to myself while reading a GitLab issue about renaming the 'master' branch to 'main'.
Not because it was full of racists (there were some) but because so many people came up with so many unintuitive idiotic names only a programmer would come up with.

Sad that they abandoned the SO-DIMM. DDDR4 form factor would have been great and quite a bit cheaper to use.
Other than that really great pricing and tons of options, so glad they finally launched it.

The whole sheet metal process on the HRO part can't be cheap either, its dented on both sides. They "welded" two pieces together here. The SHOU part doesn't do that anywhere, its probably why they went with this two part

Interestingly the retention clip is quite a bit larger on the SHOU part.

Ok didn't expect people to actually like the kitchen, this was just about feeling like a functioning adult πŸ˜„
But thanks here is a little bonus, its my favourite piece in the kitchen that I made a few years ago.

And here the proof that the SHOU part is actually two pieces (the front got damaged in my scratch tests).
The HRO part does in fact seem to be a single mould though, what I thought was a cut off was just the parting line after all.

Show thread

If you zoom in and oversaturate the front picture of the HRO part you can see the gold coating quite well. So that we see copper in the front simply says that they coat before they cut the strips.

I don't know much about metallurgy. The only thing I could imagine is gold coated brass, which would certainly make some price difference as well.
So its hard to judge how thick the gold coating actually is on the SHOU part.
