I am not good at soldering 😣 Related: I think I might need some flux? 🤔
This is the longest I've left a page open on the internet waiting to buy something.
In this case, this page has been open all day waiting for tickets to Yayoi Kusama show at the High Museum of Art.
I started filming my electronics tinkering today. My first mini-project is putting together the Rainbow Jellyfish Kit by @deshipu
I'm new at this (electronics and web video production) but the plan is to do a little bit each morning and try to put out videos regularly. If this plan works, I'll have the first one out on Friday.

My name is Marco, I'm a 21 y/o Brazilian student (major in I.S.) and freelancer.
Most of my work is done with react, but I have knowledge, and fun, with Java, C and Python as well.
I'm currently involved in a new hackerspace in São Paulo, by the name of Bolacha Hackerspace, so I love hoarding knowledge, and therefore my slogan is:
"Enthusiast of everything awesome."
So if you just want to chat or elaborate on turning the world into a anarchy, just toot me.
If you remember, Everyone saw Big Bird, but Mr. Snuffleupagus was the Mastodon of Sesame Street that the adults didn’t believe was real...
Past me put a note about how to renew my lets encrypt certificates in my pass store. Thanks past me.
I'm happy to announce that my barebones ActivityPub server, implemented in Node.js/Express, is now open source! I intend for it to be a reference implementation for developers who are adding ActivityPub to their own services, but also it is an application server that you can build on if you want.
In other words, t's a few hundred lines of code that lets you create Mastodon-compatible accounts that can accept follow requests and post stuff to their followers.
Bröthër, can you stop buying löòps? I have no self control.
I have secured a permanent nook area in our house for my electronics tinkering. There’s good light! I’m going to try recording in there next week.
PeerTube PSA: You can subscribe to channels you like now, across servers!
If you see a video you like anywhere on the fediverse, paste its home server URL into the search bar of a peertube instance you're logged into, to get a view you can subscribe to and interact with.
May I pick the fedibrain?
I've just realised that all my permanent server workload in the house is done by SBCs (RasPi, ODroid, Pine64 etc).
So, I'd like to consolidate that into a rack/power setup aimed at small systems. Something that can take a variety of different boards. For power I could use a large powered hub, but built into the rack would be good if it exists.

I hope this USB-C cable I ordered will be able to carry the video/power needed by the display adapter I'm using.
It's key to keeping the box separate.
Interestingly, it's referred to as coaxial? "USB 3.1 Type-C to Type-C Coaxial Cable"

Making a box to hide the cables and adapters needed for driving a 30” Apple display with a 2018 MacBook Pro. But along the way I’ve learned:
* there are many kinds of DVI, including “active”
* the right kind of adapter includes usb-a which is only there to supply an extra 5v since there’s apparently no overhead available from the display port side.
* there’s maybe 1 brand of usb-c that can transfer high power and fast data and its only 2’ long and not from Apple.
Ok Slack, thanks.
There is now a single-board computers category on communitywiki.org/trunk. If you like tinkering with #arduino or #RaspberryPi, or any other flavor, you should consider signing yourself up for the list: https://communitywiki.org/trunk/grab/Single-board%20computers
