Everyone is getting :cannabis_leaf: in their stocking this year, even my mother in law 😃

my sister-in-law wanted to make a toy for her 2 year old nephew who likes turning on and off light switches so I helped her learn to solder and we put together this box with 5 different switches and a bunch of different LEDs mounted on it.

the switches all interact in different ways, and some of the LEDs are RGB so you can play with it for several minutes before you figure out how everything works together.

I think the kid is going to love it.

anyone know if US-state provided (specifically, Wisconsin) mapping data is fair game for using to edit OSM maps?

I wish I knew more devops junk, I was going to setup gitea on a home server and use wiregaurd to cross into the public internet and use a domain but.. it's a bit much for me

Any recommendations for open source like fresh books? It can be a desktop app, no need for web and mobile. But invoicing and some way of accepting payments would be nice.

I guess the nice invoice/payment/tracking would require a web app though

people who know Qucs: how can I calculate RMS or arithmetic average of values in a transient simulation? If I try to do avg() of a time-dependent value, I get nan.

Maybe transient sim is not the best way to do this. I'm trying to get the power factor.

I want to simulate active PFC later on, I just need to get a grasp on the tools first.

Qucs is pretty good by the way, except for its documentation. That is worse than of LTspice, which is not a small feat.

seems both weird and appropriate that in the united states gender reveal parties have caused more fatalities with homemade improvised weapons than the antifa movement.

very surprising news:

I get 2-3x the amount of deep sleep when having read a book for an hour plus before bed vs anything involving a screen

Semi-important announcement: Google (reminder: they're an advertising company) has implemented Extension Manifest v3 in Chrome's beta build (canary). When it hits in the next Chrome update, it may break uBlock and other major adblockers, replacing the old interface they used to block ads with a much less efficient and capable one.

Google breaking adblocking under the guise of security/perf concerns is malicious. You may want to switch to a non-Chromium-based browser.

Someone bought a bunny for their kid after spending a while following mine and is now asking for help because of how it's behaving

I have literally spent 6 years loudly telling people DON'T GET A BUNNY like it's literally one of the big social media agendas I have ffs
