After a month planning, recording and editing a presentation about something I've worked on for the last 2 years...

I can't unsee how my lower teeth make me look like a vampire in the video 🦇

you either die a developer or live long enough to become the maintainer

And the talk is now announced!

They tell me the video should be made available shortly after the conference, so I'll post it here too :)

Doing a presentation in PowerPoint. Finally gave up trying to do nice animations, and whipped up a small Rust program from scratch to do them. Outputs pngs, which I then compose into a video using Blender. Muuuuch better :)

I've spent the last two weeks at work preparing (and recording) a presentation on the tech I've been working on for the last year.

I think this thing is gonna blow people's minds (it certainly blows mine!), and I can't wait for the presentation to be shown in public.

Only 4 weeks to go!

oh my god check this out

this just might be the coolest thing i have seen in my entire life

Hey, I'm looking for some maker person to help me in designing and building a whacky mechanical keyboard prototype.

My intention is to make the whole project open source (HW and SW).

Skills required would be PCB design for the electronics, and some CAD/industrial design for the case.

Oh, and I am definitely willing to pay for this help.

Boosts appreciated!

What a nice utility! Look at that, Boop helps you with a lot of the techie small things that can get in your way.

And there even is a Flatpak!

"Ok, now we need a desk lamp."

"I made a list from the website! Our options are Jansjö, Ranarp, Forså, Hektar—"

Suddenly, with an unearthly roar, the stench of brimstone filled the air. In a swirl of smoke and flame, a dark figure appeared, with robes of pure shadow and fiery eyes.

"WHAT FOOLISH MORTAL DARES SUMMON ME, THE MIGHTY—" The demon stopped abruptly. It frowned at the tasteful Swedish pine furniture on display, then sighed. "Dammit, not again."

Capitalist dystopia. They Live spoiler 

At what point does a company decide their brand identity will be defined by following the horrible dystopia of They Live, just substituting "OBEY" and "CONSUME" with "EAT"?

i'm not so much shaving the yak as deciding which brand of clippers to use

@evilscientistca hey, mind if I throw questions about gravitational waves and black holes in your general direction? I'm confused about a specific thing regarding the LIGO experiment, and I can't seem to find the answer anywhere...

@nolan >Tech Enthusiasts: Everything in my house is wired to the Internet of Things! I control it all from my smartphone! My smart-house is bluetooth enabled and I can give it voice commands via alexa! I love the future!

>Programmers / Engineers: The most recent piece of technology I own is a printer from 2004 and I keep a loaded gun ready to shoot it if it ever makes an unexpected noise.

Regarding the hardware project I talked about before, wife suggested "it'd be nice to get some extra money out of a patent"... but the fees (and time required) to register a patent... It's looking less and less likely.

I guess I'll probably end up doing something like Massdrop and call it a day

MAGNETIC DRAINAGE DOES NOT BREED SCALE

THE CHARM OF BLACK TECHNOLOGY IS UNLIMITED

I wonder what this year will bring us next. Maybe kaiju! I hope it's kaiju.

Told non-techie wife about an idea that involves me developing, manufacturing and selling hardware, and she said:
"Your ideas are usually terrible... But this one is actually good". She's now encouraging me to build it.

Down the rabbit hole we go!

absolutely losing my fucking mind at this video from the wikipedia page for the physics engine "phyz"
