#Aquarium is up and running, I've stuck to small things so I can have shrimp and plants without too much drama. I still have to go get my CO2 tank before I put more plants in there. Anyone else have trouble with neon tetras having a low survival rate the first couple weeks after introduction? Nothing else is having any difficulty, and I can't find any sign of anything wrong with the few casualties...
Just got my 20 gallon high aquarium set up, some plants and first inhabitants introduced (4 week process), and I caught myself examining the power requirements of the lights and heater and matching it to various hardware I can attach to my ESP32 or an Armbian distro powered SBC.
It's a sickness, and I embrace it.
Just over a day left on my crowd supply campaign, www.crowdsupply.com/thomas-mckahan/obsidian-esp32
The update is stuck in limbo, but by shifting some of the process to my shop (just the ESP32-WROVER-B) I can *significantly* reduce my on-hand inventory costs, so the project is funded pending the update by Crowd Supply. Snag one, they're a lot of fun for #Python hacking, #Arduino IDE supported, music playing, and I have a hat that supports VGA and PS/2 interfaces using www.FabGLib.com
More info for anyone interested: https://www.crowdsupply.com/thomas-mckahan/obsidian-esp32
FabGL is a VGA and PS/2 library for ESP32 with examples ranging from a terminal application to a full GUI (think win 3.x)
As will be typical of my work, the board design files are licensed under the CERN OHL.
I will be raising funds to make a production run of my Rpi-form-factor #ESP32 board via CrowdSupply. The design will be released under CERN OHL 1.2 as soon as I have it stabilized and funded for a run.
I've made a hardware description file for my #ESP32 board and Ka-Radio32, a nice internet radio setup for ESP32, and honestly the OLED makes me as happy as anything else has...
Now I have to keep from distracting myself and making a radio hat until after I get this one launched/released.
21st century rant
I absolutely **HATE** going to any kind of show and see a sea of lit smartphone screens to record the moment, just so people are able to show off minutes after in social media.
When did we forget to EXPERIENCE stuff instead of living things through a screen? Am I alone in this battle? 🤬
