I just typed a super long regular expression, ran it against a file, and it matched perfectly the first time!

Damn, now I feel like a rockstar!

Got my Vulkan and ImGUI rendering library working on OSX today!

Sadly, Metal (and MoltenVK) doesn’t support geometry shaders, so I had to find a workaround for my molecule renderer.

Thanks again to LWJGL for making such great bindings for Vulkan!

:newl: Kludge :newr: , my /ImGUI library for /JVM officially supports windows now! :yes: 🎉 🍻

Here's some more progress on my Molecular editor/viewer thingy for work. I'm working on a tool to focus on and highlight only certain parts of the molecule.

Here you can see a Phenylalanine residue up close and personal!

The second edition of _The (ANSI) C Programming Language_ by Kernighan and Ritchie apparently has a fun easter egg about recursion.

In other news, manually soldering SMT Optoelectronics without breaking them is hard.

I got a label printer as a gift. So of course this is the first thing I printed!

Here's one of the other projects I'm working on at work: A real-time web interface for a Cryo-Electron Microscope.

This dashboard view shows the results of micrograph analyses as they trickle in from the compute cluster.

Hooray science!

I'm going to try to be a more interesting person on Mastodon this year! Hooray 2020, and new year's resolutions!

So here's a screenshot of an app I'm working on.

It's a GUI that helps you prepare molecules for processing by our research lab's server-side molecular design software.

Who would be insane enough to solder surface-mount parts without a PCB? Apparently me.

Had to make these little wires for a thing. Dang, soldering these tiny little parts is hard! Dunno if I could do it without that amazing low-temp solder paste. Even still, I keep melting the plastic. No one will see the mess once I put the shrink tubes on though.

Hard at work today printing little white domes with my LulzBot Mini 2. Got the 0.25 mm print nozzle installed today and now I can do ultra-detailed little prints. They’re so tiny!

The first layer settings for this height leave very thin lines which don’t stick to the print bed very well. Looks like I’ll have to venture away from the default slicer settings.

Hmmm... that print didn’t go well. I ended up with a hairy elephant.

My 3D printer finally arrived!! Let the games begin!

I ordered a LulzBot Mini 2. So far, everything about this printer screams quality. I can’t wait to see what it can do!

Nothing makes soldering these ridiculously tiny parts easier than my Quad Hands! Love it!
