does anyone has any recommendations for small scale PCB manufacturing+assembly company which can handle BGAs with 0.5mm pitch (preferably in europe but not necessary)? none of the ones I found online can support it (main issues are min annular ring size and clearance for vias under the BGA).

Typing By Slamming Your Laptop Closed. Repeatedly

Do you sometimes feel that your custom mechanical keyboard is not quite loud enough to proclaim your superior hacking powers? Or do you need a more forceful way shout in all caps at someone who is wrong … hackaday.com/2020/04/04/typing

phew, this was fun! made a new #colorScheme for the kitty terminal - it's not really a port, rather than it's based on the City Lights theme (citylights.xyz/) #unixporn #i3 #i3gaps

just built a small attiny85 based light+sound "siren" for my son's toy ambulance :)

if I were a function I would simply be monotonically increasing

another historical

this is from november of 2008. here i already switched to using xmonad as a wm. bar on the bottom is dzen2. this was still gentoo.

fun thing is that i'm still using pretty much the same desktop setup. around 2010 i switched to arch instead of gentoo but for the desktop it's still xmonad with 90% same config as here. also, few years ago i switched to taffybar instead of dzen2 for the bottom bar as it has integrated system tray support.

i found this old screenshot from almost 12 years ago (2008/04/08). i was running gentoo, openbox wm and a couple of conky scripts and "invisible" terminals for the widgets. the laptop was gericom hummer with 2.8ghz single core celeron and 512mb of ram. :)

it's not N95 but it's probably better than cheap painting mask. printed in regular PLA and shaped with hair dryer with a piece of cotton shirt as a filter

today we're launching the campaign for the Keyboardio Atreus, the ultraportable ergonomic mechanical keyboard!

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/keyboardio/atreus

I've been selling these as DIY #mechanicalkeyboard kits for over 5 years, but now working together with @obra we're able to offer a fully-assembled version at a significantly lower price; check it out!

Anyone here from Canada willing to do me a big favor (I would pay for it)? There's one thing I'd like to buy (a plush toy for my kid) but I found it only on canadian wallmart site and they don't ship internationally. I'd be really happy if someone would get it and then ship it to me (Croatia). The toy (with local shipping and the shipping to Croatia) would be around $25-30 (I will cover that) and I would add $30 more for the effort.

this is amazing!!! 🎉 100% funded ($15k was the goal) in three hours (105 backers) even without previous announcement of the campaign (the announcement was supposed to go out today and the campaign was planned to start on tuesday but it was accidentally launched today :)).
