I received another batch of variations of this PCB designed using @kicad and @stargirl's Gingerbread! I'll have a bunch of these to give away at @crowdsupply #Teardown2024 Conference June 21-23 in Portland, Oregon.

Teardown is approaching! I thought I'd tell you more about the talk I'm giving, so I'm starting a 🧵 : (separate thread on the workshop coming soon too!)

Some of y'all are out there even though you're tired, it hurts, you're not feeling like it and I just wanted to say I see you; you got this, you're not alone!

Keep kicking ass!

Want to help me celebrate my 47th birthday? Please do something kind for someone and then let me know. No need to say what or for whom; a simple "I did it!" will be enough.

Happy Pride!

Trans Rights Are Human Rights.

Be good to yourself and each other. It's still rough out there.

It's 11:36 AM and I'm glad you're alive.

I love you. We are so glad you're here with us.

This kind of bullshit should be illegal. Spotify is effectively remotely bricking every single "Car Thing" device it ever sold, telling users to factory reset and "recycle" them. The devices were initially made publicly available only two years ago in Feb 2022, then discontinued production in July 2022.

It's 9:23 AM Eastern and I'm glad you are alive.

Thank you for being here with me.

I love you.

It's 8:25 AM Eastern and I'm glad you're alive.

Thanks for being here with me. I know it's been a LOT for a LONG time now. You're not alone. We'll get through this together.

Demo of the 1" (25.4mm) Fibonacci128 #RGBLED in a #3dPrinted case, showing off the touch pad animations and Color Palette Waves pattern. It includes dozens of color palettes and the pattern is procedurally animated to last hours before repeating. The code is open source and easily hackable, runs on @adafruit QT Py SAMD21.
Get yours here, along with my other LED options:

TFW you're giving a demonstration on how to use an oscilloscope to some interns and you discover a bug in the Serial data on a regularly repeating pattern that appears to be a buffer bug.

SWQA/Validation is the whetstone that your development team hones their craft against.

Working together everyone gets better.

I know you may not feel like it but you are strong enough. Stronger than you realize; it's one of the things we all admire about you.

You got this.

I have been WAITING for Sander van de Bor of California STEAM to start selling his very cool LED wearables as necklaces and just got my hands on his new Amoracci pendant. A supercapacitor (not a battery) provides power so it can charge in about 10 minutes and run lots of different built in patterns for 15 hours straight. It is also quite lightweight and comfortable which is great considering how much I will be wearing it!!!

Hey there; before I go to bed I just really needed to remind you that I love you.

I love you.

Sleep well.

Good morning gorgeous; has anyone told you how beautiful you are yet today? If not can I be the first?

It's wonderful to see you again.
