Whoa! A remote IDE would be very useful for developing GPU applications from my laptop. Sometimes the servers have special GPU hardware that I can’t really access locally.
Whoa! New slicing techniques lets #3dprinting print massive unsupported overhangs.
Also, big photography fail. I just now realized the PCB is out of focus. Maybe I should get a macro lens.
And after waaaay too much time soldering, I finally got the battery power regulator working.
I really need to work on my soldering skills though. I ran into soooo many problems trying to do the SMT parts on this board. Dunno if it was my iron temp, the tip condition, the solder/flux, but I just had the hardest time getting the solder to wet onto the copper.
What if I told you you could use build entire apps using just Microsoft Excel?
Power FX seems to be just that. One of the coolest things I've seen in a while.
The fascinating story of Jessica Livingston, an early founder of Y Combinator, as she tells it herself.
My #kicad odyssey continues! Here's the PCB layout for the battery power regulator. Everything's packed in there pretty closely... we'll see how that works out on my mill, and the eventual assembly step at the end.
Whoops... need to use connector symbols or I don't get the right footprints for my pins. v2 schematic: 😀
I'm finally learning #kicad
to do some custom PCB design! 🎉
I ran into a strange issue where zooming a schematic with the mouse wheel caused the mouse cursor to jump to the corner of my (dual monitor) screen.
Thankfully the fix is conveniently searchable in the GitLab issues. Just check a preferences box and the problem goes away! 🤩
