So I recently got a few thousand boards printed up for my protoboard design. Tested them on a few circuits and im amazed how well they work. I'm writing the datasheet now and we will begin selling on digikey, mouser, and many other big names soon.

In the meantime any EE people out there want a free board? We are going to hand out a few hundred for free to get people interested.

Here are some past posts I made about it for some background info. I've also attached an image of the final boards.

To help some of the newcomers make connections: name 5-7 things that interest as tags so they are searchable. Then boost this post or repeat its instructions so others know to do the same. Add to the post.

So I got the raw 3d MRI source files from the hospital. Then I got the software needed to view the MRI in 3d. It let me rotate, slice, and even colorize the images. So **I** generated these images from the raw MRI. It shows my kidney, heart, and skeleton from 4 different angles fully colorized. How cool is that!

I also included some of just the heart and kidneys on its own from the same scan.

So some scammer on FB just tried to tell me if I invest 1500$ in their system I'll have 15000$ in 4 days. a 10x profit in 4 days investing in their trading platform...

Of course I told them they were an idiot and not just lying but dont know basic math. With those returns if someone invested a single dollar it would take only 45 days for them to be the richest person on the entire planet... Jesus christ how did people get so stupid.

Noting A Perfect Circle has done will ever get old... it might even get better with time. Tool too but Tool is more of a mood I think.

Is the movie Nell worth watching? I just heard about it for the first time, wondering if i should bother...

Making more progress. Finally got the entire working surface of my desk completely decluttered and scrubbed. The rest of the house is spotless right now but i swear my office is taking as long as the whole house to clean, most of it was just figuring out where to put the mountain of shit i had on my desk, so this is really the bulk of the effort.

Behind me in the other half of the room is the EE lab and radio station, but that will be a breeze compared to this damn desk.

Once I have the rest of the room cleaned though I need to double back and figure out to do with that nest of wires on the desk. Takes up too much space just for wires. I'm thinking of doing some sort of cable management that is attached to the wall. At the very least going to screw that router on to the wall.

Splitting a dataset into training and test set is cool and all, but but did you try splitting your metadataset into training and test datasets?

If not, don't worry, Google Research has got you covered.

Meta-dataset is a nice way of testing how robust your new, groundbreaking model is _actually_.

An official announcement from the desk of Jeffrey Phillips Freeman:

From now on masterbation shall be known as "intrasex". That is all.

Anyone out there feel like tagging along for a caribbean vacation. I am thinking of getting a house on the beach on a caribbean island for 6 months. Should be a spare couch to host a guests on and off. So anyone who is up for a visit hit me up.

Bonus points if your into SCUBA, I'll be doing a lot of SCUBA from the beach. At a minimum you need to love the ocean and swimming otherwise it wont be worth the plane ticket.

@freemo It appears this 4nm layer is amorphous (or at least polycrystalline), not corundum/sapphire, unless produced by plasma oxidation with the express purpose of producing hardened aluminum oxide for increased hardness. Additionally, while clear, pure, alpha-crystalline aluminum oxide is often called sapphire (for what I think must be a marketing gimmick) it is actually just pure corundum, as sapphire is corundum with the metal ion inclusions that aren't red (which is ruby).

But the aluminum passivity layer is pretty sick from a materials/chemical perspective for sure :3

Feels good finally having my workspace spotless. Just gotta finish the radio and EE lab, which is halfway done and ill be good!

In St. Croix, one of the american virgin islands, drinking and driving is perfectly legal. I was shocked when I learned that from a bartender who encouraged me to take a beer with me for my ride home, an open one (I was driving).

Better yet when I asked her about if it was a problem having people drinking while driving she remarked that it was ok and safe because the roads on st. croix were so narrow and winding that people paid more attention and no one would speed.... didnt seem like the best of explanations to me.

Sooo someone not on qoto was asking a few days ago for access to our peertube instance. I totally lost track of the conversation and forgot to reply. Now I cant find it.

If your out there hit me up and ill setup yourpeertube account for you.

@lupyuen How you doing lately, havent caught up in a while. Still keeping busy by the looks of it.

I ate soooooo many scallops for lunch.. dont regret it either, apparently a mountain of scallops, even with butter, is surprisingly low in calories. Way ahead of my calorie budget for the day and stuffed with scallops, not a bad combo!
