Data acquisition, electronics, oscilloscope.
I was looking for a good yet inexpensive USB oscilloscope. I am focused on having at least 30 MHz bandwidth, possibly a stable FPGA-based scope. So far I found Perytech 2200 or Pico 2205A/2206B (multi purpose, includes also AWG etc), but couldn't find reliable info on the Internet.
Someone told me about Digilent Analog Discovery 2, but it seems offering a bit too much features for 300 €...
Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

It you have the chance, visit this beautiful city carved in the rock, that feels like an #escher artwork. You won't be disappointed!
Hm, so at least one person saw beauty in parentheses before #lisp hackers.

GUI programming && design suggestions
Little question: need to start programming GUI interfaces for data acquisition boards. Basically keeping DAQ running in the background while displaying virtual instrumentation (e.g. oscilloscope, multimeters...) on the UI. User can trigger events and set modes of operation.
Any suggestion for the GUI design software? I'm quite skilled in Python but I am considering switching to other languages if necessary. Thanks in advance!
Hi everyone! I'm a young student, that embraces the philosophy of free software. Even if I am not a computer expert, as a graduate in Philosophy, I understand the principles of free software and I follow them. #intoduction
Found this through a youtuber that I follow @switchedtolinux. Thought i'd check it out. I like the premise of Mastodon so far...

Hope to find like minded individuals, learn something new and maybe make a friend or two in the process.
We'll see what shakes out.
Laptop fixing, dead fan, Ubuntu.
Hi Fediverse! May I ask your tech-help please? A close friend brought me a laptop with a over-heating problem to fix. It runs Ubuntu 18.04.
1. When booting the fan spins few seconds, hence I guess it's not a mechanical problem.
2. When using lm-sensors the fan rpm indicator doesn't show up.
3. The cores get 80 Celsius in few minutes, fan seems to be completely dead.
4. The owner had already changed the CPU heat paste.
