there's no such thing as too many waffles! good bye #fosdem! one more waffle for the road and i'm off to the airport.
Off to #FOSDEM!
Are you ready for FOSDEM this weekend? We are waiting you in the OSHW room with two days soldering workshops! https://olimex.wordpress.com/2020/01/29/fosdem-2020-bruxelles-1-2-of-february-oshw-room-and-soldering-workshops/
@deshipu congrats to the hackaday prizes! cool projects!
me: a perfect opportunity to learn svelte.js! maybe also find some nice template... now on to spend the next hour searching for a nice color scheme!
rational me: but we don't have time! we still have to...
me: [checking out the svelte getting started]
#EEZ Studio  is awesome tool for anyone into electronics! It can remotely control most SCPI enabled instruments (for example Rigol oscilloscope) and fetch screens or waveform data (and do some analysis on it) into journal-like session which is locally stored (in sqlite db) so you can have complete history of the measurements, comments and attached files while developing a project. It's developed by folks behind the amazing and open source #BenchBox3 power supply
switched from vim to #neovim and from YouCompleteMe+ALE to CoC. haven't yet experienced some more advanced differences but i like neovim's "fancy" GUI features. on the other hand CoC handles contextual completion and linting much better than YCM (for python and JS) and i'm quite happy with it. but had to "turn it down" a quite a bit as the auto completion is pretty aggressive and pops up constantly.
This @joplinapp looks like it's shaping up to be *the* killer FOSS note taking app replacement for evernote. It even imports evernote format!
The EEZ Bench Box 3 is such a beautiful open hardware modular bench power supply! I'm in awe. Their documentation is simply perfect: https://www.envox.hr/eez/eez-bench-box-3/introduction.html (see the sidebar for details on its components)
I need this in my lab.

"Do you have something to hide?" is a manipulative rebuke to those that use #encryption.
It would help us all turn this conversation around. Because, the answer is: YES, we do have something to hide.
Things that we should hide, and must question why a government or business NEEDS access to:
- Medical history.
- Sensitive conversations with employers, children, spouses.
- Billing and banking information.
- Purchase information.
- Web search history.
Hackaday published the device I made: https://hackaday.com/2019/11/15/double-pendulum-uses-custom-slip-rings/
Double Pendulum Uses Custom Slip Rings
Rotating mechanisms can be a headache when it becomes necessary to deliver power through them. [Igor Brkic] faced just such a challenge when creating his double-pendulum build, and solved it with a little DIY.
