Yesterday I build a macropad.
It is my first build to include rotary encoders and man they are fun to play around with! 😁
This was also my first build where I had to solder more than just the mechanical switches. I had to solder every single component onto the PCB which was a lot of fun (except for the USB-C connector. It was a pain in the butt to solder that beast).
Controversial opinion on competitions in general
I really don’t like to (directly) compete. I find it to be very stressful and usually the reward for winning is symbolic.
So not only would I waste a lot of energy competing against other people I would also gain (almost) nothing from it.
I believe we would gain more if we would all just cooperate more instead of competing all the time.

I had a left over striking from a flower yesterday. Instead of throwing it away, I put it in a temporary vase with some water and then left it in the entrance to our apartment building, with a note that said it's free if someone wants it.
Today someone had replaced it with a new flower and a new note thanking us for our flower.
It made my day!

The Nvidia Linux drivers have never been good but whatever has been happening at Nvidia for the past decade has to stop today.
This bug causes hard irrecoverable crashes from driver 440+. This issue is still happening 5+ months later with no end in sight.
"I will slaughter you" - some emails penetrate even my thick open source maintainer skin. Like this threat.
"Terraria developer cancels Google Stadia port after YouTube account ban"
On which OS do the #fedicraft people play on?
I am just wondering, because I can imagine a fair share of Linux.
I, personally, play on Linux.
I've been developing a #moodle plugin.
So far I love the development experience! Everything I needed is documented and easy to find.
