Anyway, here's the whole family. Blue connects two modules and daisy-chains, big red contains a small amount of voltage converters and small red keeps the whole thing from burning down the house.


For the first time in my life I have a gaming console that isn't many years older than me, and I have made an interesting discovery: I suck at games. I know none of the tropes and I can't deal with controls that aren't KB+Mouse.

if you're having trouble visualizing the recursive centaur i've made this helpful reference

If you scroll over wrapped lines using j/k you may notice your cursor jumping over the wrapped part of the line because vim ignores wrapping. If you use gj/gk vim will instead put the cursor on the next line *visually*, taking wrapping into account. You can make this behaviour default too by putting `map j gj` and `map k gk` into your vimrc.

`:w(rite)` work for selections: You can select some lines in visual mode and use `:w /some/filename` to only write the selected lines into that file.
Also you can use `:r(ead) /some/filename` to read a file — or even use `:r(ead) !/some/command` to include the stdout of that program.

You can open many types of compressed files directly: `(n)vim` and `(n)vim data.tar.gz` will let you open, edit &save files within the archive — if your distribution includes zip.vim and tar.vim respectively.

Between the idea
And the reality
Between the motion
And the act
Falls the Shadow.


I have a thing I *need* to do. I also have a lot of things I *want* to do. But I don't manage to do the former one and I'm forbidding myself to do the latter until I've done the former. So I'm sitting around getting neither the things I need to do nor the things I want to do actually done. It's frustrating.

aich verstehe ja, dass Menschen die Optik eines Feuerwerks geil finden.

Das geht aber auch mit Drohnen die LEDs tragen und eine Choreografie fliegen.

Vorteil: wiederverwertbar, weniger CO2, kein verstörender Lärm für Tiere, Menschen die vom Krieg traumatisiert wurden und allgemein lärmempfindlichen Menschen.

Nachteil: weniger Bewerbungen für den Darwin-Award.

Ich würde den Deal eingehen.

Lining up connectors with their matching part on separate PCBs. Thanks KiCadStepUp for making this a painless process.

Putting stuff together I'm happy to be able to finally see progress \o/

Also here's *checks notes* Excaliber, Excalibur is in repair at the moment.
