Hi, I'm Loy. Have been on the for a while but did not do proper . I'm a father to the sweetest son I can imagine, 2nd kid on the way. Work 99% , in . Kid leaves time for 1 hobby, which is : I run a mixed group of 11-15 y/o kids and manage our scout building. Used to do @Home for a hobby but that is a thing of the past I'm afraid. Occasionally I do some and I'm busy reducing the energy needs of our home.

There we go.. 😴. Waking up at 5:15 and not taking a mid-day nap when you're 2y/o makes you very cranky.

So, my oldest kiddo loves rockets. Can't say the word properly yet ('ket!') but it's all going to plan: I just calmed him by putting him on my lap and watching a @SpaceX @elonmusk Starlink launch.

Any tips btw on how to make Python `breakpoint()` work when the script is called from CMake called by ROS 2's colcon? Would have saved some time and a great many print-statements

Spent a few days debugging ros1_bridge's code generation. It's a C++ application, code generation in Python-called-from-CMake, I've written a few paragraphs about how it all works for future me, all to arrive at a -1 line pull request for the fix: github.com/ros2/ros1_bridge/pu

Can I quote you in a green article @justincormack?

En automatisch plannen is bij zoveel mensen en activiteiten en beperkingen ook niet makkelijk denk ik zo :-(

Groot evenement bij Scouting Boxtel dit weekend @JOTAJOTI . Bijna 200 kinderen, 80+ personen leiding, ~20 activiteiten. Met een flinke planning. Alleen al het checken ervan is een flinke klus. Ik denk meteen aan automatiseren van het checken, maar daar doen we het te weinig voor.

I'm brainstorming a list of provocative ROS topics because chaos. Here's what I have thus far:
* Should ROS 1 be End of Life?
* State Machines vs. Behavior Trees
* Should more std_msgs exist?
* X is the best DDS and should be the default twitter.com/rodhilton/status/1

Loving so far. I'd expect to hate Disney to milk Star Wars to death and didn't like the sequel movies, but the TV stuff is great. Just shoot that Star Wars milk straight into my veins.

The wonders of remote working in robotics :-) About to test from home in NL, together with a colleague in Stuttgart @mojin_robotics a robot that is located an hour's drive north of Munich (with someone there with an E-stop etc in hand)

En deze reeks bezoeken afgesloten bij Scouting Boxtel @scouting_nl, waar ik samen met @RoelHoyos van @CdaBoxtel in gesprek ging. Mooi om de verduurzaming te zien, en de betrokkenheid van de leden. Maar ook wordt de energierekening gevoeld (8/9)

Woah, @nixcraft is pretty neat. I wanted to try out @OpenAI 's Whisper ARS model. Requires Python 3.10, laptop has 3.8, `pip install`ed it anyways, crashes. Run `nix-shell -p openai-whisper` , boom, it works, recognizes my test recording with no errors 🤯

Oh, great. Just overnight, our 2 m/o decided to not accept bottles with milk any more. Just like the oldest kid around the same age. So for the baby we started using bottles earlier, once a day, which worked until suddenly not :-(
